    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

Benning | Brothers

This fun session on one of the hottest days of summer started with cute, sweet boys and ended with cute superheros!  Another little boy has joined their family this summer.  An easy going baby and well loved by his older brothers.  They would run around and then come back to where baby brother was.  So sweet as they would gently hold him, give kisses and talk to him.  A special bond between brothers!

Superman!  Super boys!!

Adam + Kara | Montana Wedding

It blows me away that this wedding was planned in just a few months!  Full of beautiful details and all the wonderful ideas for their day pulled together impeccably!  It was an absolutely gorgeous beginning to their life together and celebration of their love.  There was perfect cloud cover as they walked down the aisle to this stunning view and vowed their lives to one another.  It was a very special, personalized ceremony along the ridge from where this gorgeous bride grew up.  Their radiant smiles and happy tears welling up at being announced Mr + Mrs was a beautiful expression of the feeling in their hearts.  Having known Kara for pretty well her entire life it was an all around incredible wedding to share in!!  There are a lot of photos below and they will show better than I can put into words.  Congratulations to a beautiful, happy couple with the most stunning smiles!  It was very much an honor to photograph your beautiful wedding and we loved sharing in your special day!!!

I was absolutely in my glory!  One of my favorite places along with this great looking, sweet couple.  So much beauty!!!

The amazing florals were arranged by The Flowerbox.

I don’t think I could ever tire of taking photos by the dam…even when we – maybe just me – were completely startled by a big garter snake moments before!  I still think of it as such a serene place!

A lot of work and hours put in by many people made for a shop that was done up fabulously.  So perfectly rustic and beautiful!

For anyone in the Sheridan area you must check out Catering with Class.  Kara’s aunt is an wonderful lady and every dish she prepares is put together artistically and tastes so amazing!!

And the getaway…very excited to head off and enjoy a relaxing honeymoon!

Pederson family | Extended family

I had a very enjoyable time with this farming family on an evening filled with beautiful prairie sunshine!  Not that all their kids are involved on the farm but it’s a place this close knit family enjoys to be together.  And most of them live within just a few miles.  I loved the unique backdrop of their cornfield.  Thankfully we left with as many children as we took over there!  They had lots of fun picking and husking corn and some of them became cute little mustaches.  The kids were all adorable with parents and grandparents that know how to have fun with them and show them tons of love!

Thank you all for the incredible evening!!  It was great to meet and spend time with all of you!

Erica you were wonderful to coordinate with, thanks for all your work organizing the family!

Brian + Lana | Wedding

This couple has been so wonderful to work with since we connected a few months ago with a change in plans for their wedding location.  From a dock on the water in BC to a beautiful, blooming backyard of the bride’s parents in Weyburn.  The afternoon was filled with laughter, tears, hugs, some goofy fun and most of all so much love and happiness.  These two are wonderful, happy and easy going so sharing in their special, intimate celebration was a delight!  They made the planning process seem so effortless yet everywhere you looked the details and thought that went into creating what they did was certainly well done.  It goes to show just how thoughtful and organized this couple is!

Parts of the mother of the bride’s wedding dress were used for accent organza flower accents and wrapping her bouquet and the lace overlaid on her shawl that the jewelry is set on here.

A great brother and bridesman to toss flower petals infront of her!!

It was very unfortunate that Lana’s Mom ended up being in the hospital and couldn’t attend their wedding.  They made a great effort to include her as best they could and with the help of fabulous real-time technology, she shared in parts of the day by FaceTime.

The newlyweds making a champagne toast!

They were such a fun group to be out in the sunshine with!!  The groomsman took his job seriously.  Carrying her dress or tucking it in his pocket and holding her hair when it was blowing around in the wind!

Thank you very much Brian + Lana, I have really enjoyed getting to know you both and wish you the best as husband and wife!  Have a fantastic honeymoon, relaxing and enjoying time together on the yacht!!  It sounds amazing!
