tracy connery photography - invermere wedding and portrait photographer

The days don’t get much more gorgeous than this that I spent with Stacie and Jamie last month.  On this picture perfect bluebird day I opted for the expansive and spectacular views offered up at picturesque Eagle Ranch Resort.  These last few winters have been hard-pressed to provide any Winter Wonderland opportunities, so this was a treat!

Stacie and Jamie are coming from Vernon to get married early this spring here in the Valley.  This was a great chance to get to know them and break the proverbial ice – pun intended! – before the big day.

This beautiful couple was so very game, playing in the snow.  We decided on snowshoes and, really, if we hadn’t the heaps of snow might have got in the way.  I probably should have told the photographer this was a snowshoe session… perhaps, she might have come prepared!  Let’s just say that the snow-filled boots and soaked socks were plenty well-deserved.

It was a pleasure getting to know Stacie and Jamie better in advance of their wedding and I am SO looking forward to another fabulous day photographing this delightful, easy-going pair!

I had THE best time just before the holidays with the family Osborne-Paradis!

Lana had me split the session in two: the first as close to new as we could get, which meant new dad, Manny, wouldn’t be able to be there and would receive this batch of newborn photographs as a bit of surprise – SURPRISE! – and; the second, as a family, with Sloane just a smidge older and oh-so-happy having both mum & dad there to dote on her.

What a lovely variation Sloane provided us!  She didn’t sleep much and I was SO very pleased that we were able to maximize the time she did doze and get some wonderful sleepy baby shots.  But, her awake baby are just as adorable – all big blue eyes!!

It was such a pleasure working with this excited new family.  Little Sloane is blessed with two incredibly wonderful and over-the-moon-in-love parents… not to mention the miles of travel she’ll likely start to log even as a wee tot.

Congratulations, Osborne-Paradis family!  What a darling little bundle you’ve welcomed!

Waaaay back to late July… when we still had our summer, I met up with Lisa, Adam and pup, Lana to play at Tretheway Beach in Windermere.  It was HOT!  I’m not complaining, cuz’ I think that was our last stint of really hot, summer-y weather.

But, as is often the case in the heat of summer, with the sun so high for so long each day, we photogs drag our clients from the loveliness of the water and the beach into to shade.

And the shade is dreamy.  A beautiful sheltered spot with gorgeous light where I could capture this couple, so at ease with one another and so completely and wonderfully free expressing how much they dig each other!

And what is up with Adam’s smile – how cute is he?!?!  During the editing of this session it just seemed every frame that included Adam, he was smiling. If he’s not kissing Lisa, he’s smiling at her.  He has the best smile… and clearly, she’s doing something right!

This was a pleasure of a shoot and these two just made my job SO easy!

And I look forward to making more beautiful pictures with Lisa and Adam on their wedding day next summer.

What is there to say about Nipika Mountain Resort that can’t just be more simply conveyed through pictures!

Outstanding backdrops in all directions… truly.

And the same can be said for the lovely Laura and her handsome Adrian.  So darned gorgeous, even more-so together and it’s evident in these photographs how much they love each other.  It’s a serene and peaceful, in-love, glow!

They were a joy to work with right from the get-go, with their engagement session earlier this summer being another fun outing with the camera and the two of them.

Venue: Nipika Mountain Resort

Catering: Nipika Mountain Resort

Flowers: Inspire Floral Boutique

As with all the weekends this summer it’s been a race against the rain!  Sometimes we win and, well… actually, we always win, because I’d rather be working around the rain than full-on-sun!

As was the case for the lovely Teira and her handsome Cassidy on their gorgeous day.  When it didn’t matter, it poured.  When it was time to get outside and make some pictures, miraculously, it all worked out beautifully.  I guess that’s what they call an omen!

Though from what I could tell, Teira, Cassidy and their lovely little man, Holden, aren’t in need of any omens to secure their future together.  This day was chock full of love, support and just the most wonderful people anywhere… so all bodes very well for this beautiful young family, indeed.
