Red Deer Wedding Photographers

We're wedding photographers who photograph weddings, portraits, and events in Red Deer, Alberta. Red Deer is the third largest city in Alberta with a population of 100,418. It is located in-between Edmonton and Calgary.

Red Deer started out as a trading post well over 100 years ago and only had a few small homesteads. Agriculture has always been a big part of Red Deer and with the help of a vastly expanding oil and gas sector Red Deer has become a thriving modern city in Alberta.

One of the most frequently visited places in Red Deer during the summer is Discovery Canyon Park. It is also one of Alberta's most popular municipal water parks.

Red Deer is home to the Alberta Sports Hall of Fame and Museum. This is a must see for all ages as kids and adults can participate in a number of interactive games like hockey, soccer, basketball, baseball and football. Kids will love exploring the Mount Everest climbing wall while mom and dad catch up on Alberta's extremely diverse sports history.

Red Deer has started a very popular tourism venture called Agritourism. With over 9,100 farms in the area there is an abundance of fresh food available to all the restaurants in Red Deer and many farms offer the opportunity to visit and see how they grow their produce. Once the growing season has started there are also many farms that offer the U-pick experience where visitors can pick their own fruit and vegetables.

One farm that stands out is the Kraay Family Farm. This incredible family farm is home to over 40 family friendly attractions. With a corn maze that stretches over 15 acres, pumpkin cannons, an obstacle course and many other activities, this is the perfect way to spend an unforgettable day.

Some of the wedding venues in and around Red Deer include;

The Heritage Ranch is well known for their one of a kind weddings, as well as corporate meetings and business parties. This is also your go to destination for date nights with many options on how to spend your evening, from trail rides, to activities with the kids or just a romantic dinner at West Lake Grill which is also fully licensed.

Cronquist House

Cronquist House is one of the largest venues in Red Deer and is situated near Bower Ponds. They can host many different types of events but are known best for weddings. It is over 100 years old but don't let it's age deter you from its beauty. Boasting 8 bedrooms this Victorian style house can accommodate any sized wedding. The real heroes in bringing this icon back to life is the Red Deer Cultural Heritage Society. Originally built in 1911 by Emmanuel Cronquist it has been transformed many times.

Canyon Ski Resort

Canyon Ski Resort is the perfect mix of nature and natural. This place is a wedding photographers dream come true. With an abundance of green space, unparalled areas near the Red Deer River and unique views that only a ski hill can offer, people will be talking about your wedding for years. They can hold up to 250 guests and are a fully catered venue with the ability to customize your own buffett. We highly recommend checking this venue out.

Maple Dell Acres is Red Deers best kept secret when it comes to wedding venues. With 20 acres of secluded countryside this venue can offer you something special. Peace and quiet, until your wedding reception kicks off and then you don't have to worry about any neighbours noise complaints so you can keep the party going, all night long. This venue opened in 1978 and they have a wealth of knowledge when it comes to planning your dream wedding.
