    What does BEAUTI mean to you?

    beau-ty (n.pl.) Any of those attributes of form, sound, color, character, behavior, achievement, etc., which give pleasure and gratification to the senses or to the mind. Something excellent of its kind.

    BEAUTI is more than physical attractiveness. BEAUTI surrounds us in many forms.

    BEAUTI portrayed inside and out. BEAUTI at every age, in every stage of life. BEAUTI of this incredible world we live in. BEAUTI of emotions and feelings of the moment. BEAUTI that cannot be put into words.

    Discovering. Cherishing. Capturing.

    Thank you for checking out my blog, feel free to look around and add a comment or send me a note. Sharing life’s BEAUTIs from my perspective…enjoy! Jenelle

Family photos in the sunshine | Mini sessions

There was a half hour scheduled on Kevin + Amy’s wedding day for photos of each of her gorgeous sisters and their families.  Two beautiful little families.  You all did amazing considering we had just a short amount of time to work with.  It was very sweet when the kids all walked up the aisle a few hours later too.  Hope you had a safe trip home to SK, it’s neat we live not too far apart.  I’m glad these photos were part of the day.

Kevin + Amy | Crossfield, Alberta Wedding

I was glad when we made our move east to know I was going back in a couple months to shoot Kevin + Amy’s farm wedding at Crossfield.  It was a perfect chance to get back to catch up with friends and their wedding day was magnificent.  Amy was the best for keeping me informed of updates and neat ideas they were going to use for their day.  Not only did every note make me that much more excited for their wedding day but it helped get coverage of all their special details.  I loved their rustic, country theme.  Every detail was perfectly suited.  The girls bouquets were very neat and unique, the designers made them from wood shavings.  Perfect for the sweltering hot summer day.

With the timing of their day to have a late afternoon outdoor ceremony, they chose to have a first look.  In a most beautiful old farmyard that provided an incredible rustic backdrop.  It was wonderful to be standing back, just watching and capturing their reactions and witnessing their love and connection.  Then headed back after photos for a most touching, beautiful wedding ceremony.  It was hard to put down my camera photographing such an incredibly good looking, super sweet couple!  I’d love any chance to photograph you two again.  Thank you Kevin + Amy, I enjoyed shooting your engagement and wedding photos so much.  I wish you two the very best together!!

Amy you are gorgeous, I love this shot!  I’m glad we had extra time after the ceremony for more bride + groom portraits!

Taylor family | Canmore, Ab

They wake up in the Rocky Mountains everyday.  Absolutely one of the most beautiful places.  And I love that they take advantage.  It’s not just a pretty view, it’s their playground.  These are lucky little boys for countless reasons! This was such a refreshing, inspiring evening. The mountain air and stunning scenery. But more so, this very sweet, fun family of four. Any camera shake was me laughing at hilarious things being said and goofy expressions. So fun! Thank you! The boys were fantastic and I’m glad they gave me hugs at the end…even when they couldn’t just ride bikes the whole time! Next visit I’ll have to go ride a downhill with them.

Loved Cheryl’s stylish functional shoes!

*Tyson + Karla* Wedding

Their love beamed like the sunshine.  It engulfed and warmed everyone honored to be in their presence.  They were happy.  In love.  On top of the world happy and in love.  Committing their lives and love to one another.  Tyson proposed to Karla on top of a mountain overlooking Kamloops where they live.  A pair of boots and a simple question.  If she would walk the rest of her life with him.  So sweet, very unique and I love that the engagement gift involved footwear!

They were married in the beautiful river valley at Echodale Park just outside of Medicine Hat.  All smiles and truly in love.  A colorful, happy day with many special, unique touches.  It was a pleasure to photograph your wedding day.  Thank you to the two of you for your love and enthusiasm.  Thank you to your wonderful families for all their kindness.

Congratulations!  Have fun setting up your new home together.  You are an amazing couple that I know will have an incredible, fun journey thru life.  Side by side.  xoxo

There are a few more images that were posted as their PREVIEW.
