Banff Engagement Photographers | Alice & Mark | Two Jack Lake & Vermilion Lake

Wednesday, September 25th, 2013

Alice & Mark were married on September 1 in Calgary so I think it’s time I post their Banff engagement session before I post any of their wedding sneak peeks! I met up with them back in July on a perfect summer say. We met up at Two Jack Lake (one of my favourite places in Banff) to start their engagement session. The scenery in this spot is just amazing, and while the water is a little chilly, I couldn’t resist sending Alice & Mark out to be in it for a little while (only up to the ankle at least!). On the way out we stopped in a gorgeous field pf daisies for more photos before I got us lost on the way to the next spot, so we opted to hang out on the train tracks (I know, I know!) before finally ending up at Vermilion Lake where I was the one to wade out in the chilly mountain lake water for lots of fabulous photos! I love the cute little dock at Vermilion lake surrounded by all that water and the fabulous mountain views. I just love Banff… can’t wait to go back!! These are my favourite photos from Alice & Mark’s Banff engagement photo session… enjoy!

Banff Wedding Photographers – Mikaela & Bob – Two Jack Lake sneak peek

Tuesday, August 14th, 2012

I have a little bit of a crush on Banff. When I first moved West, I got really excited about seeing the Rocky Mountains but I couldn’t believe that they were that amazing. I mean, we’ve got mountains on the East Coast, but they were nothing like this! What makes the mountains in Banff even better? Combining them with a wedding, of course! I’m jealous of  the local Banff wedding photographers because all this gorgeousness is in their back yard and can spin a full 360 and have amazing locations and views in every direction! I try to get to the mountains as often as I can and I still can’t decide which town I like better between Camore, Banff, Lake Louise and Jasper… four-way tie maybe?

I was super excited for Mikaela and Bob’s wedding in Banff this past weekend. I knew they were a pretty awesome couple, but can you imagine how much more I loved them when I suggested they walk in Two Jack Lake on their wedding day, in full wedding clothes, to get to a little island for their wedding photos and they didn’t look at me like I was crazy? OK, maybe they thought I was a little crazy, I couldn’t tell for sure, but they seemed to be up for anything and boy did that make me get even more excited!

I simply adore this photo, on a teeny little island, with the tree mimicking their pose and surrounded by all the glory of the mountains and the gorgeous green water. Yup, swoon with me for a moment. I’m also fond of this moment since I got wade around in the water on a pretty toasty summer day to the this photo and that couldn’t have been any more perfect. Did I mention we also got the wedding party to hike out through water to the island for photos too? You’ll have to wait for the full wedding post to see that though, this sneak peek is just to show off Mikaela & Bob for now! Congratulations you two, it was a pleasure spending the day you with you and your amazing friends and family!

Lake Louise Wedding Photographer | Nyla & Channce | Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise Wedding

Monday, March 19th, 2012

I was a little worried when I left Calgary to drive in to Lake Louise for Nyla & Chance’s wedding at the Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise. It was only early October and it was cold and rainy and I knew once I got past Banff it would just get colder driving into the mountains. I got to the hotel (and wow, is it ever spectacular!) and the temperature was hovering just above ) degrees and I was afraid it was going to be too cold for photos outside. I wandered in to catch the boys getting ready in the awesome suite where the ceremony was to take place and then went over to hang out with Nyla and her sister as they were getting ready. There we lots of pretty details for me to play with too. After the getting ready we headed over the Belvedere Suite where the ceremony was going to take place on the Balcony overlooking Lake Louise and the mountains beyond…

It was a small gathering of close family and friends. I followed Nyla as she snuck toward the suite and then I ran upstairs to capture her entrance! It was a sweet ceremony. Afterwards we braved the cold and rain and took photos outside on the hotel grounds before heading back to the suite for a few more shots. Just as we were packing it up for the day, the sun broke though and we took some of my favourite photos of the day!

Don’t be deceived… it was darn chilly in Lake Louise that day!

Banff Wedding Photographer | Banff Springs wedding with a vintage-y, antique feel & more detail shots than I’ve ever taken before!

Wednesday, May 25th, 2011

So a few months ago, in March to be precise, Derek and I headed off to Banff to attend Susan and Krister’s wedding. I did my best to be a good guest and stay out of the hired photographers’ way while still nabbing a few shots during the ceremony (at St Georges in the Pines) and the reception (Fairmont Banff Springs) for fun. The detail shots, however, were where I got to run wild! Susan asked if i’d be ok to shoot the details for them, and of course I was! For one, I’ve never just “hung out” between the ceremony and reception, I’m always off taking pictures of the family and the wedding party, so what in the world was I going to do for 3 hours other than take photos? Secondly… well, look at the details! It’s a wedding photographers dream (ok, maybe not all photographers love the detail shots, but I do) to have hours to shoot the details with no pressure and no time contraints. And, um, yeah, look at the rings I got to play with for the ring shots… love!!

The details at Susan’ and Krister’s wedding were spectacular! There was an awesome vintage/antique feel which really suited Mt Stephan Hall at the Fairmont Banff Springs. There were lots of different flower arrangements and tons of awesome vintage tins used in the centrepieces for the tables. There was a pretty rockin’ latte bar too, with lots of vintage teacups and the sweet table… oh my, the sweet table! It was decked out in super tasty cookies and had the most awesome cake from The Art of Cake. I love the cake topper which was just perfect for a pair of photographers getting married. I do wonder if it’s wrong to pledge my undying love to chivari chairs… ok, it’s is, but I can’t help it! Look how amazing those chairs looked! Everywhere you look there were thoughtful, fantastic details. Also totally loving Krister’s felt flower bout… awesome!

Speaking of awesome, well, that had to be Susan and Krister’s wedding planner, Rebecca from High Culture: Weddings & Special Events. Rebecca was fantastic and was very speedy with the set-up of things, and as we can see from the photos, the reception was breathtaking. The gorgeous flowers were from Studio Bloom in Edmonton.
