Kim & Jerrica | Grande Prairie Wedding Photographer | Kayla Lynn Photography

kim and jerrica wedding for the small wedding elopement at wedding venue in grande prairie with pretty fall colors Kim’s and Jerrica’s wedding has quickly become a new favorite, and I am SO excited to share their photos with you, today!  I had the pleasure of shooting their wedding day at the lovely Millwood Country Inn, this past Thursday, one of my favorite venues in the Grande Prairie area!

I will never forget their wedding day for so many reasons.  It was filled with tears, excitement and so much joy.  There wasn’t a single part of the day I didn’t love.  It was all so beautiful! 

After 9 years of being together, it was so wonderful to see these two say “I do”.  Within those 9 years, they dated long distance, while one of them lived in Canada and the other worked in the Philippines.  Years later, they both settled into Canada where they would start a part of their life together. 

All the details incorporated into their special day were very well thought out and so beautiful. I loved the way Kim & Jerrica included an abundance of pampas grass, gold accents,  creams and pastels for their wedding.  The gold chiavari chairs by Rustic Rebellion Events & Rentals paired with blush napkins and a large floral centerpiece on each table brought a very elegant feel to their special day.  My photographer heart was on overdrive, the entire day!  I especially loved working with such a talented, creative team,  while photographing the lovely bridal party with their dreamy, pampas grass bouquets made by The Little Petal Co.

Most of the guests attending their wedding were close friends, but covid didn’t stop their friends and family from far away, to be a part of their special day, too. Sitting in the corner of the reception area, there was a big screen tv, playing personal videos from their closest family and friends living in the Philippines.  Although Covid has truly brought some challenges for our sweet 2020 couples, it was touching to see all their guests near and far congratulating the newlyweds.  Watching those videos proved one thing – no matter the distance, Kim & Jerrica are so incredibly loved by their family and friends, near and from the other side of the world. 

Kim & Jerrica, I loved being a part of your special day.  From the moment we sat down together, at Jeffrey’s Cafe in Grande Prairie less than a year ago, to hear about your story and your plans for your wedding, I couldn’t wait for this day to come!  You two are one of the most kindest couples I have ever met, making it an honor and pleasure to serve you on your wedding day, every step of the way.  I hope you love your memories as much as I loved documenting them for you!

Eric & Lindsay | Grande Prairie Wedding Photographer | Kayla Lynn Photography

It’s not every weekend that I get to photograph not one, but TWO weddings!  With Eric’s and Lindsay’s wedding being on a Sunday, there was no better way than to end the weekend, celebrating and photographing their big day!

I always get excited when I get to photograph people that I’ve known for years. I’ve known Mr. Goodwin through computer class, since high school. When I met Lindsay for the first time at our local coffee shop, I instantly knew how she was the perfect fit for Eric. They are both calm, kind and always make people around them feel so welcome. I felt so happy that Mr. Goodwin found such a sweet woman that he now gets to call his wife! 

Eric and Lindsay had such a beautiful wedding day! They got married in a white church, located in Sexsmith, surrounded by some of their closest family and friends, near and far. A live video camera was set up, so that all their family and friends watched them say their “I-Do’s”.  It was so incredibly sweet getting to photograph this very special moment.  They spent the rest of the evening, visiting with friends, with an abundant amount of dessert.  I think they won the best wedding dessert award. The lemon tarts and homemade oreo cookies were to die for! 

Eric and Lindsay, I have to thank you again for allowing me to be a part of such an important season in your life. Capturing your happy memories and love for each other was truly a joy.  It’s couples like you that makes this the best joy in the world.  You two are truly something special and I am so excited for both of you, as you embark on a brand new journey in your life!

Gerad & Kailey | Elegant Backyard Wedding | Alberta Wedding Photographer

kaile and gerads romantic kj light airy photographer elegant backyard covid intimate wedding photography in grande prairie alberta canada

One of my favorite things about my job is when I have the honor of capturing the celebration for another past “Kayla Lynn” couples family!  While I was photographing Kevin’s and Taylor’s wedding here in Grande Prairie, nearly two years ago, I saw Gerad and Kailey, so in love, dancing on the dance floor together. Little did I know, they would be contacting me, a year later to capture their big day! 

I was blown away by the amount of detail Kailey and her family put into this very special day. Considering they had to plan their wedding a few times, due to covid, it all turned out so beautifully. They went from a big wedding venue, to hosting their intimate wedding in Kailey’s parent’s backyard, full of greenery, flowers and gold chiavari chairs. As you scroll through the images, you’ll instantly see the amount of love and hours of work that went into their very special day!

My heart was warmed by the overwhelming amount of love Gerad’s and Kailey’s family and friends have for them. Every click of the camera shutter was capturing a special moment, laughter or tears of joy as they were surrounded by some of their closest family and friends. There were family members, especially their moms, helping make the most delicious meals and making sure their day run smoothly. Gerad’s dad video recorded their entire day. As they walked down the aisle, there was an iPad ready, full of family members who couldn’t make it, congratulating the newlyweds!  That itself proves, no matter the distance, Kailey and Gerad are so incredibly loved. It was inspiring to see their families and closest friends join together on their very special day, no matter the distance! 

If you asked me what was my favorite part of Gerad’s and Kailey’s wedding day, I would tell you I loved it all. The daddy-daughter first look, the bride and groom first look, their ceremony and reception speeches had many of the guests in tears. 

Gerad and Kailey, from the bottom of my heart, thank you for having me capture your very special day.  It was a privilege being at your side on the most important day of your lives.  I couldn’t have imagined being anywhere else.  You two are going to make such amazing parents to your son, and I can’t wait for the day when you are holding this sweet baby boy in your arms.  For now, enjoy my many favorites from your big day!

Kim & Jerrica | Alberta Wedding Photographer | Kayla Lynn Photography

photos with jim and jerrica in banff jasper national park in canada with their wedding and engagement photographer lots of light creams and dusty blue colors at lake minnewankaNot that long ago, we were all sitting at Jeffery’s Cafe, chatting about all the exciting plans ahead for Kim’s and Jerrica’s big day. As we sat together, I found out that they had nearly been 9 years together.  Only 10 minutes into getting to know these two, I already knew how perfect these two are for each other. They told me all about how they first met at work, in the Philippines, then dated long distance across the world for a full year. How Kim surprised Jerrica with flower petals, chocolate, but more importantly, a shiny new ring that would change their lives forever! 

Since the first day we met, Kim & Jerrica made it very clear they wanted their engagement portraits in the Canadian Rockies, shot by the crystal clear blue water. A couple months later, I received the news that Kim and Jerrica had to postpone their 9th year anniversary/wedding to a later date, in hopes to celebrate their special day with more family and friends.  So what did we do on their 9th year anniversary / wedding date, instead? We all packed our bags, traveling to one of those beautiful places in the world, to capture their engagement portraits… in Banff! There couldn’t have been a better way to celebrate their original wedding date AND 9th year anniversary, all at the same time.

Everything about their engagement session was so beautiful, in so many ways. Jerrica had a fresh bouquet of flowers made by the talented Willow Flower Co, a dusty blue skirt (snagged from my client closet) and perfectly coordinated outfits to pop against the scenic Lake Minnewanka location in Banff.  Above all, what stood out to me the most, was Kim’s and Jerrica’s love and commitment for one another. Over the last few months, so much has changed with our current covid situation. But what didn’t change is how deeply in love these two are, and that’s all I needed to make these portraits happen! 

Kim and Jerrica, you two are the sweetest!  I loved every minute having you in front of my camera, for your 9 year anniversary-engagement, and it makes me even more excited for your Millwood Country Inn wedding, in just a few more months. Here are some of my favorites from our time together,  in the mountains. I hope you love them as much as I do!!

Danial & Shelbee | Grande Cache Wedding | Kayla Lynn Photography

grande cache mountain wedidng with bride and groom adventure in grande cache elopement with danial and shelbee in canoe at grande cache lake

When I first met Danial and Shelbee, they told me one of the sweetest proposal stories I have ever heard.  After a long hike up Mount Hamel, Danial had Shelbee look over a cliff to take a photo.  When she turned around, there was Danial on one knee, asking him to marry her!  Then they proceeded to tell me that they were going to get married on top of a mountain for their wedding day, in Grande Cache.  How sweet!  As you can imagine, I’ve been looking forward to their big day since we first met, last year… and I feel so honored to document their special day for them.

Although their wedding plans were drastically altered due to the virus, I am so thankful they chose to get married this year, regardless of the circumstances.  They had a beautiful wedding with their closest family and friends, enjoying their day to the fullest in so many ways.  Right before the ceremony, Danial & Shelbee shared a first look in front of the glowing lake, mountains surrounding them then they enjoyed a fun canoe ride and picnic for two at Grande Cache Lake! 

As we drove closer and closer up the mountain for their ceremony, the views just kept getting better.  I could smell the fresh smell of pine trees, we saw layers of snow layed among the paths and mountains started to appear from left to right.  Then we were finally there… their ceremony site with a beautiful mountain view.  This immediately gave me goosebumps because of how breathtaking the ceremony view was.  The best part?  This was no ordinary mountain view.  As you scroll through the images, the mountain you see as their ceremony backdrop is Mount Hamel, the same mountain where Danial proposed to Shelbee.

To celebrate the reception where they had their toasts, they also shared their first dance and so much more.  Just photographing their reception alone, I could see how loved Danial and Shelbee are!  As I captured the rest of the evening, I couldn’t help but think how much of an honor it is to spend the day with all these sweet people! 

Danial and Shelbee, thank you placing your trust in me to capture your beautiful wedding day!  I wish you both nothing but the absolute best, as you start this new adventure as Mr. and Mrs. Ambrose.  Enjoy a few of my favorites from your big day!

Russell & Rebekah | Grande Prairie Wedding Photographer | Kayla Lynn Photography

grande prairie wedding with russell and rebekah with their puppy dog small ceremony covid wedding in alberta with light and airy style

Russell & Rebekah are MARRIED! These two had a beautiful, intimate wedding day, last Saturday! Although it may not be the wedding day that they originally planned, it was beautiful just the same! Russell and Rebekah decided that this pandemic  wasn’t going to get in the way of them getting married! They had their immediate family attend, plus myself during their ceremony, here in Grande Prairie. They set up a tripod to live steam their wedding ceremony, online for all their family and friends to see! Although they were not there in person, they were all celebrating with them, in spirit, online. This blog post is only part 1 of their love story! Once the social distancing restrictions have been lifted, Russell and Rebekah will be having a big celebration where they can hug all of their loved ones. I know that they cannot wait for that day to come! 

Something that truly stood out to me is their strong faith and connection with God. Before their ceremony, Russell & Rebekah did a “blind first look” where they held hands between a wall. Their parents joined from both sides, praying for this sweet couple and their future together. It was so touching to see their loving parents join them in prayer, just minutes before their ceremony.

Seeing these two marry each other was such a joy to photograph, for so many reasons!!! They are such a kind, caring couple. Russell is always making Rebekah smile, which happened in many moments of their wedding day, from their ceremony all throughout their wedding day! When these two began their relationship as friends, Russell told Rebekah that he was going to marry her someday and he was right! 

Towards the end of our time together, that day, we made our way to Starbucks where Russell would always go see her as she worked there! It was such a fun time getting to document this part of their love story (and their love for Starbucks too)!

Russell and Rebekah, congratulations again on this new adventure! It was a privilege and pleasure to document the first day of it. I am so grateful for the trust you placed in me and I am so excited to share some of my favorite moments and memories with you! We can’t wait to celebrate your marriage and love for one another, with all of your family and friends, again soon! We already know it’s going to be spectacular!

Scott’s & Holly’s Elegant Ryan’s Castle Wedding in Edmonton

ryans castle bnb wedding photos photographer with holly and scott very romantic for their covid 19 2020 wedding

It’s not every day I get to take wedding photos at a castle! The best part? We didn’t have to travel anywhere for their castle photos, since Scott & Holly were able to book in a spot at Ryan’s Castle BnB for their wedding photos, in Edmonton!

We started off the day with the sweetest intimate ceremony, held in their own backyard, with very few family and friends. For those who couldn’t make it to their intimate ceremony, due to Covid-19 and travel, Scott and Holly set up a video chat for their family and friends to join along, too. It was the perfect way to include everyone on their wedding day. The wedding music started playing, the video chat on their laptop was LIVE, so that all of their family and friends could join. Their sweet ring bearer dog, stepped through the doorway with a little basket attached to her, holding the wedding rings.  Holly, in her beautiful princess wedding gown, stepped out of their home, ready to walk down the aisle to meet her groom. As she got closer to Scott, all I could see in that moment was this lovely couple, so full of joy and excitement to marry each other! They truly didn’t let Covid-19 get in the way of being married, and it was such an honor to capture their happy memories!

One of my favorite moments was seeing Scott & Holly, standing side by side, chatting with their family members, through the video chat call, right after their ceremony. Although they couldn’t be with them physically, it was touching to see their family members congratulating them from far away. 

I remember months ago, Scott and Holly had mentioned to me they would like their wedding portraits captured at the Ryan’s Castle Bnb, in Edmonton. After hearing the news of Covid-19, they weren’t sure if they would still be able to have their photos captured there, but they were still hopeful. Fast forward a few weeks later, and they received the great news that their dream wedding castle photos were about to come true! It was the most perfect hidden gem for their wedding portraits captured at the Ryan’s Castle Bnb. After hearing the news of Covid-19, they weren’t sure if they would still be able to have their photos captured there, but they were still hopeful. Fast Forward a few weeks later, and they received the great news their dream wedding castle photos were about to come true! It was the most perfect hidden gem for their wedding portraits. Capturing their love for each other in front of Ryan’s Castle Bnb, truly felt like you were in Scotland! We even went inside their home, filled with antique items, the most elegant set of stairs and a massive pool area. It was pretty amazing!

Scott & Holly, thank you for reminding me why I feel so blessed to get to do what I do. Capturing your happy memories and love for each other was truly a joy. It’s couples like you that makes this the best joy in the world. We are truly looking forward to capturing your love for one another, with all of your family and friends, again next year!

John & Alisabeth | Grande Prairie Wedding Photographer | Kayla Lynn Photography

 

Alisbeth and John are married! I am so excited to share their wedding blog with you!!! These two were supposed to get married at the end of June, however with the restrictions put in place due to COVID-19, these two decided to get married almost TWO full months earlier! A few days before the wedding, they messaged me asking if I would photograph their wedding portraits THIS Friday, and I of course said yes! I couldn’t be more excited to photograph their wedding photos.

The morning of the wedding, I was thinking how I could capture the most perfect memories for them. I had an idea…. Wouldn’t it be so sweet to capture John & Alisabeth seeing each other for the first time, in their wedding attire, on their wedding day?  I quickly texted Alisabeth, and they were both on board with having their first look captured.

John stood in a path, full of trees and glowy light. It all felt so real that they were about to get married in short 2 hours from then. As Alisabeth walked towards him, I could see the excitement John had to seeing his bride! As Alisabeth walked closer towards him, she called out his name. He turned around, seeing Alisabeth in her beautiful wedding dress. He let out the biggest smile, and so did she. It was such an honor getting to capture this special moment for them! 

Alisabeth & John, thank you from the bottom of my heart for having me capture your wedding memories. We know that although we weren’t able to photograph you with all your guests this year, we are so incredibly excited to capture the rest of your wedding memories with your friends and family next year! We can already tell it’s going to be another amazing day. I hope you love looking back on these portraits, through my lens, as much as I loved witnessing it with my own eyes. We wish you two nothing but the best as you begin your life as Mr. & Mrs. We are truly looking forward to celebrating your love for each other and all the celebrations, in 2021!

Scott + Jessie | Destination Mexico Wedding Photographer | Kayla Lynn Photography

beautiful wedding couple next to the palm trees in mexico cancun for their destination wedding photographer

 

Just last week, we escaped the winter cold and hopped on a place to one of the most beautiful destinations in the world… Mexico. It was warm, full of sun, sandy beaches and a beautiful ocean view. We spent a full week with family, explored beautiful places such as Tulum and swam through the waves in the ocean. Months leading up to the trip, I frequently had literal dreams of the ocean.  Yes, there were a lot of dreams!! Well, my dreams finally came true! Combining my love for a gorgeous ocean view and photographing a wedding all at the same time, it truly couldn’t get better than that! 

People always ask me, “What was your most favorite part about Mexico?”. I can never give just one answer since there is so much to love. I love the ocean, Tulum, warm sand… but above all I loved photographing these memories for my Uncle Scott and his wife, Jessie. Although they are family and I always love photographing family… Scott and Jessie are just so perfect for each other. They’re both so kind, caring and always thinking about the people in their lives. And capturing their love for each other and the celebrating for this beautiful beginning was such a joy. 

Their ceremony was held next to the pillars and a blue ocean view, in Cancun. As soon it was time for their wedding portraits, the glowy light was in its prime! We captured their portraits next to some of the tallest palm trees and on the sandy beach with the most perfect ocean backdrop. As the sun was going down fast, my uncle Scott picked up his wife and stood in the warm ocean water. It was truly spectacular and I can already envision these portraits hanging in their home! 

Uncle Scott and Jessie, thank you for having me capture one of the best days of your lives. I am so ultimately excited, for you both. Congratulations to the two of you, and welcome to the family Jessie!!!

It was the most perfect fall day, filled with golden leaves, a lot of love and a glimpse of sunshine! Braden and Breanna said their “I do’s” in the St. Joseph Catholic Church, with their closest family and friends, along with their sweet daughter, Nora. They are such wonderful parents to their little girl, and it was moving to photograph this exciting chapter in their lives, with their little one by their side! 

All the vendors who were a part of their big day was simply satisfying.  Rhonda with Changing Dreams To Reality brought Breanna’s vision to life at the Bear Creek Golf Club Venue, full of greenery, navy blue and gold accents. She put so much work into making their reception venue so perfect, it was a dream photographing all the little details she put together! Carmen’s CraZ Cakes baked the most delicious and stylish cake, full of white and navy flowers to match the overall theme. While the Bear Creek Golf Club catered the most delicious food. The potatoes topped with the creamiest gravy was truly my favorite. It was an exhilarating experience getting to photograph this lovely couple’s wedding day, while getting to enjoy Thanksgiving dinner with all of their guests!

There were so many parts of the day that we absolutely loved capturing, from seeing these two share their first look, Nora peeking behind the podium as their wedding guests watched Braden say his speech, and the dreamy portraits we captured during sunset! The fall colors were truly spectacular, but what stood out to me the most is the joy these two bring in each other’s lives!!

Braden & Breanna, we wish you two a lifetime of love and happiness!! Your wedding day was so beautiful and so full of love! Thank you for allowing us the honor of being a part of your wedding day!
