These two came down and met up with me in Waterton for our engagement shoot. It was a lovely evening in Waterton and we had fun together capturing these two together.

Where did you first meet? We met when I first moved to Edmonton through friends.

When did you realize that you wanted to marry each other? There was no defined moment but many little moments made me realize how perfect we were for each other 🙂

What kinds of things do you like to do together? Go to movies, visit banff, hangout with family,

Where did the proposal happen and how? Bowness park which is where we went on our first date together

Tell me about your favorite date you’ve had together: Not sure if this counts as a favorite but it is definitely one of the most memorable. It was our 2nd date he took me to bowness park planning on starting a fire to roast some marshmallows. He had some troubles starting the fire so he thought pouring some gasoline on the fire would help. As he was pouring the gasoline the whole water bottle lit up like a fire ball in his hand. He then chucked it and as it was flying through the air gasoline fire was raining onto the ground. I looked over at his face and he was in panic mode trying to put out the fire. I try to make light of the situation at the beginning because i didn’t know him very well and I was still trying to make a good impression haha. It was spreading fast up a near by tree. We both start trying to stop it out and as I am doing so my shoe starts to catch fire. At this point in my mind I remember debating to call 911 but then Connor comes back with some ice from a cooler someone had dumbed on the ground. We through it on the fire as fast as we could and it slowly went away.

One word that would describe you two together is: Inseparable

I can’t wait for their August Wedding in Calgary! I haven’t done one in the Calgary LDS Temple yet and I’m excited to shoot there!

    Liana Kearl - thank you Rhonda for capturing such a special time. We love these and will treasure them for years to come! Liana


Every time I do grad/ senior pictures I remember how much i LOVE it. It’s basically just us chatting and then I capture them. And Dez was tons of fun to take pictures of. She told me right off that she was nervous and that she didn’t like smiling but liked serious. Which is just fine with me! She’s a beautiful girl and she’s headed off into the world soon. So exciting!

Dez is a great athlete (you should see her play basketball!) and she tried Rugby for the first time this year. And then ended up breaking her hand, which stinks. But she was willing to put on her uniform later in the evening because I had this idea of a shot. I really love it, so I’m glad she agreed. 🙂

Such a beautiful girl!!

    KRISTIN - These are beautiful Rhonda!
    I love the way you really capture people.


Jared and McKaya’s day ended up being so nice out! The storm clouds kind of threatened for a bit but then left. It was a beautiful day in Cardston and then we headed out towards Waterton but only went part way for some mountain views. One thing Jared really wanted was a couple shots of them with mountain views and big open scenery. I love love white space like this so I was happy to oblige that! And I may have shared a LOT because I really loved the images 😉


This is bench McKaya is sitting on is hand made by her grandpa. He makes one for each grandchild. And she asked for this colour and I asked if we could use it! So so cute! I wish he was making me one too… I wonder if he’ll adopt me as a grandchild. HA.

Jared and McKaya’s first date was storm chasing and taking pictures. (Jared is a great photographer.) They didn’t end up catching any good shots.

McKaya learned quickly that Jared loves Taylor Swift but he hates singing the words because she only sings about boys and he feels weird about that.

Jared proposed at the train bridge in Lethbridge. He even did a video of it. If you see the video he wrote the question marks backwards in the snow because he was doing it upside down. It was also about -20 out and McKaya was wearing tights under her jeans. He told her they were going to take pictures of the train bridge. Jared’s friend had a drone that was recording everything and she didn’t think anything was out of the ordinary.

McKaya gave Jared this great watch. Love it.

They love to go hiking and doing puzzles.

At their family dinner Jared’s parents talked about how they knew that McKaya was special to Jared because he called home to tell them about her, and he never did that. You can see the way that they look at each other how much in love they are.


Huge congrats to these two love birds!

    Carmen - You did a great job on capturing them! Not only are these pictures beautiful and happy, but they exuberate joy and love and you captured it.


Billie was nervous about getting pictures taken. She said she wasn’t comfortable. But man she is totally photogenic and beautiful. And it’s totally satisfying to capture people who say that they aren’t comfortable and get them to relax and chat with me and capture who they are. And how beautiful they are.

Billie said she knew on their first date that she was gonna marry Dallas.

Old Chief is special to Billie’s dad so I was happy we could get it in the background.

They loving watching sports together. And playing softball together. And supporting Billie’s three kids. At this session Dallas told Billie how much he loved her kids and how much he loved her kids and being in their lives. So so so so sweet.

I think their wedding will be LOTS of fun. They’re getting married in Sparwood in July. And I think it will be a fun time had by all.

Huge congrats to these two.

We had planned to go to Waterton for their engagements but the weather was not co-operating. It was snowing and doing all kinds of nutty things in Waterton and raining in Lethbridge. And then just before we took pictures the clouds parted and we had a bit of sun. Not a ton. Just enough to capture each these two and their love.

They love to play basketball together, go on hikes, play tennis and hang out with family.

They met each other a year ago when he came back from BYU and have been practically dating ever since.

Teesha’s favourite date was when they painted pictures at Henderson lake, which ended up being where he proposed later too.

They are totally affectionate with each other and totally romantic with each other. It’s lovely. I love romantic couples.

This is one of my favourite shots from the whole session. Lovely light and a great looking couple!
