Styled Elopement in AlbertaRex + JadeKleskun Hills Grande Prairie

Rex and Jade’s romantic styled elopement has been recently published on Knots Villa Weddings, and we couldn’t be more excited for this feature! So many amazing vendors came together and brought this beautiful vision to life. Not only did these two receive gorgeous photos captured with just the two of them together, Bread & Wine Films captured their story perfectly, too! You can watch their elopement video attached to this blog!

This gorgeous styled elopement took place in the badlands at Kleskun Hills, Located in Alberta. Kleskun Hills is the perfect spot for an intimate elopement with sandy hills and beautiful light. The inspiration was based using blush pink tones with a hint of lavendar. Bling Out Parties created the most stunning cascading bouquet, while also providing a garland for the table mixed with succulents, lavender and greenery. Every detail chosen for this shoot all fell together beautifully. The antique blush pink couch was so elegant paired up with a beautiful couple and gown from Castaspella Boutique. The dress included long tulle and lace, it was such a dream to photograph. The cake featured on the sweets table was full of white and blush pink flowers. I especially loved the unique gold chairs and decor featured on the sweetheart table – A fresh garland, gold candle sticks and light chiffon fabric. All these details led to the perfect elegant styled elopement.

Scroll down below to view some of my favorites! The details put together by all the vendors is something you’ve never seen before. Absolutely breathtaking. Special thanks to all the lovely vendors involved. We couldn’t have brought this vision to life without you!

Fairview WeddingKarl + KatelynVictorian House Wedding

beautiful wedding photographer in fairview grande prairie photographer with karl and katelyn vow renewal fall wedding photos with lots of elegant victorian details and shoes and yellow house

It was such a joy capturing Karl’s and Katelyn’s gorgeous vow renewal,  here in Canada, this past weekend. This adorable couple in love got married in England, exactly one year ago, so having a vow renewal was the perfect way to celebrate with those who didn’t make it on their wedding day!

Karl and Katelyn originally choose to have their vow renewal in Chicago. However due to unforeseen circumstances, it was not possible to have their wedding there. As a result, they choose to have their wedding, here in Canada, instead. In only one week, they found the most perfect venue, hired a photographer and planned all the details from centerpieces, flowers, chairs, tables, linens and extra cute decorative items. When I saw all the details that went into the planning of their wedding day, I could hardly believe all of this was planned in only ONE week!!

The venue was one of the most beautiful venues I have ever photographed at, located at a bed and breakfast in Fairview. The beautiful property included lots of trees, a white modern barn and a yellow victorian house (my favorite). Not to mention, the interior of the house was a dream to photograph their getting ready portraits. This included white walls, a crystal chandelier, gorgeous light and an emerald green couch. I also LOVED Katelyn’s wedding dress with polka dot patterns and light fabric flowing effortlessly in the wind.

Karl and Katelyn, thank you so much for trusting me in capturing your vow renewal. I was so happy to have been available on your special day and capturing the special moments that mean most to you. It was amazing. And for only meeting you two once, I could tell how perfect you two are for each other. You two are such a fun and sweet couple!! I wish you two all the happiness in the world as you continue and begin this exciting journey!

Your photographer,

Kayla

Wedding AlbumsCustom Wedding AlbumsAlberta Wedding Photographer

thick genuine leather photo album with grande prairie alberta wedding photographer kayla lynn photography with super thick pages and a custom photo on the front

I loved designing this beautiful high quality wedding album from Mark’s and Janaya’s wedding day, and I couldn’t be more happy on how it turned out! With each photo printed on smooth thick spreads and wrapped in top grain leather, these albums are the most special keepsake for any couples wedding day!

After the wedding day is over, I most often find that putting together a wedding album is hard for most couples. It takes a creative eye, patience and being able to curate the images in a beautiful and meaningful way. And most often, attempting to create an album with so many things on the go isn’t always possible. I realize most times couples need someone who will take care of everything, so that they don’t have to worry about a thing when it comes to creating and designing their own wedding album. Which is why I offer the whole wedding album experience for my couples, so they can leave the album designing and creating process up to me!

Wedding albums are amazing because they tell your story as a couple in a beautiful tangible way. So that one day they will be left as a special keepsake to show your children and grandchildren one day!

These wedding albums are so gorgeous!! The leather is SO soft in texture, and smells good too!

The pages are super thick and are SO smooth! I have never felt an album so smooth with the thickest pages in my entire life!

Lake Minnewanka BanffJames + Shauna2 Year Anniversary Photos

cute couple taking engagement photos with photographer wedding in banff and jasper at lake minnewankaFor those who have been asking me recently if I travel outside of Grande Prairie to do wedding, elopement or couple photos, my answer is YES! Some of those places include Jasper, Banff, the West Coast or even outside of Canada too! When Shauna and James were open to doing their anniversary photos in Banff, I was so excited to capture these photos for them! Clear blue water, fresh mountain air, light colored rocks and a gorgeous mountain backdrop, I knew this was going to make for some magazine worthy images. Jame’s navy blue suit, Shauna’s long blush pink chiffon dress and Wild Magnolia Floral’s gorgeous bouquet added a romantic, dreamy and elegant feel. James and Shauna love to hike in the mountains, so I knew they were going to LOVE having their photos taken in Banff, too!

I always find it amazing that the mountains live just a short distance away from Grande Prairie, while people from all across the world come to visit this beautiful place on earth, here in Alberta. The views are truly beautiful. We captured James and Shauna’s anniversary photos at Lake Minnewanka in Banff, and I am so glad we did! There is so much to explore, and everywhere you turn, there is always something new to discover. I could take photos there again, and the images would still have a new, fresh feel.

As much as my heart was overjoyed by the beautiful scenery in their photos, the part I love most was capturing real love and true joy between this couple since their wedding two years ago. It was refreshing capturing their love for adventure, while letting their personalities shine through these images. Thank you for the fun adventure, James & Shauna! Happy 2nd anniversary!

Grande PrairieKevin + TaylorEvergreen Park Wedding

kayla lynn photography grande prairie wedding photographer for kevin and taylors wedding day at clarkson hall fall

With fall colors beginning to appear in the Grande Prairie area, I knew Kevin’s and Taylor’s wedding was going to be beautiful, at the Clarkson Hall wedding venue. It was such a joy being invited to capture Kevin’s and Taylor’s special day. These two are selfless and have the most kindest hearts. They are always so full of joy, and I can honestly say these two are so meant for each other! Capturing the whole day from start to finish, and getting to know their sweet family and friends was such an honor.

Rain WAS in the forecast for Kevin’s and Taylor’s special day… about 10-20mm and high winds to be exact. In result, we had a couple backup plans in case the high winds and rain was too much for photos. It had rained HEAVY earlier that morning. Even certain areas of Grande Prairie was flooded. Once it came to their getting ready photos, the rain had dried, while the sun was out and shining beautifully. I am not sure how this changed so suddenly, but I am so thankful these two were able to enjoy a part of their day outside for all of their wedding photos!

It was is so evident Kevin & Taylor are loved by the sweet family and friends who came to celebrate with them on their wedding day. Their bridal party was super fun and I love their sense of humor. Each and every one of them made Kevin’s and Taylor’s bright and so full of joy! On their wedding day, I felt more than just being a wedding photographer, but a friend capturing and celebrating one of the best days of their life alongside of them.

Taylor expressed to me sharing a first look with her father and mother before the wedding ceremony was very important to her. Her parents standing in their living room, excited to see their soon-to-be married daughter for the first time. Soon, Taylor walked down the stairs in her beautiful and elegant wedding dress. Instantly, her father’s and mother’s smiles brightened the room. Full of tears of joy in this moment, all three hugged each other closely.  It was truly an honor being invited to capture this beautiful moment shared between Taylor and her Parent’s.

Kevin and Taylor, your love for one another is so beautiful, and I am so incredibly thankful being invited to capture your special day. It was an honor. I wish you two all the best as husband and wife! Enjoy some of my many favorites from your special day! 🙂

Grande PrairieRob + NicolePomeroy Hotel Wedding

pomeroy wedding bride and groom photos in grande prairie with rob and nicole this image include wedding flowers and shoes sparkly with kayla lynn photography

Rob’s and Nicole’s wedding day was the perfect start to September, photographing this sweet couple we adore! You may remember these two from their Kleskun Hill (Grande Prairie) engagement session a few months back. They are a super fun couple and always full of smiles. I could hardly wait until their special day!

The day started a bit cloudy with a hint of sun. However, as soon as we arrived to their portrait location, we were hit with unexpected wind and rain. The wind was so heavy, the umbrellas weren’t enough support to block off the rain. As a result, we followed our second backup plan and chose a very nice indoor location, close to where their reception was being held at the Pomeroy Hotel. I normally deliver outdoor photos to my couples, but looking at their images, I actually LOVED how this small indoor location made for such bright and beautiful images! We did so many pictures in this location from Nicole sharing her first look with her brother and dad, as well as bridal party photos and bride & groom photos… I really don’t think there could have been a better indoor location than this!

One of my favorite moments throughout the whole day was Nicole sharing a first look with her brother and dad. As soon as Nicole’s brother and dad turned around to see her for their first time, their reactions were priceless. She was so beautiful. Nicole shared a long warm hug with her brother. She then hugged her amazing dad, with a warm smile on his face. You could just feel the emotion in this moment, so full of love and joy. To capture this moment as a photographer, I know these images Nicole and their family will cherish for the rest of their lives.

Rob and Nicole, It was such a joy getting to be there and capture all the moments and memories made on your special day. We feel so incredibly happy to be your photographers! Enjoy just a few of our many favorites!

Grande PrairieOge + MeredithMillwood Country Inn Wedding

I am so excited to share this beautiful Millwood Country Inn wedding (in Grande Prairie, Alberta) with you today! After capturing Oge’s and Meredith’s engagement session in June, I was extra excited to capture their special day! These two are super relaxed, they have the most contagious smiles and the most kindest hearts. I love their sense of humor, too! I don’t know how we get so lucky working with the most amazing couples there is! Not only that, but we had the privilege working with amazing videographers, Via Prestige Studio, and ensuring Oge and Meredith have memories documented so that they may cherish their photos and video for years to come.

Their ceremony and reception took place at the the gorgeous Millwood Country Inn, my favorite wedding venue located in the Grande Prairie area. Bright green hues, a cute building, vines and flowers all over… it was truly magical and breathtaking. The possibilities for photos are endless. If I could, I could take pictures all the time.

What stuck out the most to me was the warmth and love of Oge and Meredith, and everyone around them on their special day. Meredith’s sister Kirsten was such an amazing help throughout the day, ensuring everything ran smoothly. The bride’s mother, Melody, planned a lot of the details (before they were even engaged) and leading up to their wedding day.  Meredith’s bridesmaids and Oge’s groomsmen were so incredibly sweet to be around and each excited to be a part of their special day. During the reception, family and friends shared stories, verses from the bible and sweet memories from the past including Oge and Meredith. You could feel the love by not only this sweet couple, but by every single person in the room.

Oge and Meredith, thank you so much for allowing us to capture your special day. It was truly an honor, and we are so excited for you to see some of our many favorites!!

Special thanks to my second photographer, Kaylah, for capturing the groom’s getting ready photos and reception detail photos, included within this blog post.

Special thanks to all the vendors who made their day amazing!

Grande PrairieDerek + TraciRainy Wedding Day

This past Friday, I had the pleasure capturing Derek’s and Traci’s wedding day, near Spirit River. While getting to know Derek and Traci a bit more, during their engagement session, this past June, these two have such a fun and friendly spirit. This caused me to be extra excited to capture their big day!

Honestly there was so many precious moments on their special day, I could not tell you which moment I loved most!! I was just so happy to be there to capture it all from these two sharing their first look, the tears, the look in each other’s eyes during their wedding ceremony, taking pictures in the rain… I loved it all. The first look was amazing. Derek’s reaction the moment he saw his bride was priceless, and was out of words for how beautiful Traci was! It was such a beautiful moment shared between the two of them together. 

Heavy rain was in the forecast for their wedding day, but that didn’t stop Derek and Traci from enjoying celebrating this time together with their family and friends! Rain or shine, these two were choosing to have an outdoor ceremony in front of the beautiful pond on Derek’s parent’s acreage. After raining the entire morning, luckily the rain stopped just on time for their wedding ceremony – It couldn’t have been more perfect timing than that! Even better, the rain held off for their family portraits, too! We did, however, have rain for Derek’s and Traci’s bride and groom portraits, however I LOVE how these two were up for some photos of them together, despite the rain. It even gave us the excuse to bring out the clear umbrellas for their bride and groom photos, too! With this adorable couple under a clear umbrella to keep them a bit dry, these romantic photos turned out to be some of my favorites from their entire wedding day! It was such a joy capturing the love between Derek and Traci, and taking advantage of the cloudy skies and sprinkles of rain to create images they will cherish for the rest of their lives as husband and wife.

Derek and Traci, what a joy it was to capture the laugh, the tears and your love for one another throughout the whole day. My job as a photographer is the best, and it’s all because of amazing couples, like you!! Thank you for being so amazing. Congrats you two!

Grande PrairieJohnathan + TashaBrick House Wedding

6 years ago, Johnathan and Tasha met at their friends, Chris’s and Amber’s wedding day. With a love for music, these two fell in love. 6 years later after knowing each other, July 14th officially marks the day of their wedding and I feel so incredibly honored to capture their special day. Their wedding was surrounded by such amazing family and friends, a beautiful ceremony that I will never forget, a gorgeous venue on Johnathan’s parents’ farm with lots of greenery, a cute vintage brick house built in the 1930’s and beautiful grown flowers all over… it couldn’t have been such a better day for Johnathan and Tasha.

Jonathan and Tasha  are such an amazing couple, and so are the family and friends who came together to make their special day happen. Jonathan’s mom Louise made such a gorgeous wedding cake and would check in with me, making sure that I had all I needed to capture a piece of their story; From providing a stool, special heirlooms and making sure I had enough light coming into the getting ready room. She added in some details for me to capture, and I am so glad she did! This included Tasha’s grandmother’s beautiful wedding ring, a special card from Tasha’s and Jonathan’s parents, antique brooches, a hair brush and a mirror gifted to Jonathan’s grandparents on their wedding day. Photographing these heirlooms was so important to Johnathan, Tasha and their family as it tells a beautiful piece of their story. Johnathan’s father put a lot of work into the home, prior to their wedding day, including cleaning, cutting the grass, making the wedding arch and so much more. Both Johnathan’s and Tasha’s parents and so many family and friends were such an amazing support for their special day.

I also must add the wedding cake was absolutely amazing. Louise put so much thought and detail into the cake.. With a layer of music notes circling the bottom tiere, the same lace from Tasha’s wedding veil, detailed patterns, heirlooms and  a beautiful music carriage sitting at the top tier – These details were incredible and each held a story relating to Johnathan and Tasha in different ways. Not only were the details well thought out, the cake was super delicious too. I never heard so many guests comment how amazing it was. Johnathan and Tasha also kept the top tiere of the wedding cake for their 1 year anniversary, next year – So special!

Johnathan and Tasha, thank you for allowing me to be a part of one of the most special days in your life. Your love for each other is so beautiful, and it was an honor being there to capture all the special moments and details. Congrats you two!

This beautiful ring is the ring Tasha’s grandmother wore on her wedding day!

 

Thanks to all the wonderful vendors who were a part of the their special day!

Grande Prairie Wedding PhotographerSurya + VanessaBlue Jasper Mountain Engagement

jasper engagement photos elopement wedding at lake annette with beautiful blue water and a light grey dress with black suit

When these two asked me to photograph their engagement session in Jasper, I knew this was going to make for one amazing adventure!  These two are the sweetest couple you could imagine, super kind and so relatable. Not only am I excited to blog this session because how sweet of a couple these two are… but because we got to capture their photos in one of the most beautiful locations here in Canada! Although I have been to the Canadian Rockies many times in my life, I am always still amazed by the beauty of Jasper and the fact that the mountains is such a short distance away from Grande Prairie. Clear blue water, mountains all over and the fresh pine air… they could not have picked a better spot. We even snuck in a gorgeous bouquet made by The Enchanting Bouquet!

What may surprise you is that Jasper was not in original plans for their engagement session location. Vanessa expected she would not see her fiance, Surya, for the next 6 months… However, before Surya leaving to the Dominican for 6 months to pursue his dream playing baseball, he planned to come down to SURPRISE her along with an engagement session. Not too long after the engagement session was booked, Vanessa found out Surya was coming down to visit her. We attempted to convince the session would be held later next winter, but she didn’t believe us. However, it was because Vanessa knew Surya was coming down to visit her before he left for the Dominican, we were able to plan an exciting trip to the mountains for their engagement photos!! I consider that a very good thing! 😉

Our session together was quite the adventure!! We got stuck behind a train, drove to two gorgeous locations and went in ice cold mountain water towards the end of our session. And the best part, almost no mosquitoes! These two were such naturals in front of the camera , and I love how these two braved the cold mountain water with the most gorgeous pink sunset there was – They turned out to be some of my favorites!

Surya and Vanessa, thank you so much for allowing me to capture this exciting season in your life and for asking me to photograph your engagement photos in Jasper. I loved getting to know you two during our time together and I cannot wait to show you some of my favorites. I must admit, I felt a bit sad once our time together was over… you two are just so much fun to be with!! I hope you love these images as much as I do!

Special thanks to all the vendors that contributed to their engagement session! Christa with The Enchanting Bouquet created such a beautiful light pink bouquet, Makeup by Lina did beautiful Makeup for Vanessa and Edward’s Factory Outlet provided the suit for Surya.
