Mount Norquay Ski Resort Wedding | Banff Wedding Photography | Banff National Park Wedding

What a pleasure it was to work with Jared and Chandra for their wedding in Banff, Alberta. To say this wedding was of Olympic proportions would be an understatement. Jared and Chandra made sure the day flowed absolutely flawlessly. From choosing the elegant Paintbox Lodge in Canmore as their getting ready/accommodations site, to a beautiful ceremony and reception held at Mount Norquay Ski Resort in Banff. The day was really beautiful. 

The weather on this particular weekend was quite tricky, however. We had everything from rain, snow, and sunshine. A very typical Canadian Rockies day! I'm sure it is of no surprise to those who know the couple, they handled it with style, grace and sense of adventure. We took advantage of the gondola at Mount Norquay and did some snowy bride/groom portraits up high. I was more than happy to oblige!

When it came to celebrating the union of this incredible power couple, the night was full of great moments. Killer dance moves, Giant Jenga (in use to make the couple kiss), a choreographed dance performance by the wedding party and an extremely well done video curated by the bride's father. All of this adds up to a very memorable, special and beautiful wedding to photograph.

Deepest gratitude to Chandra and Jared for bringing me along to capture their momentous wedding day. I wish you both so much love, light and promise for the years I know you will cherish together. You two are so perfect for each other. Also, many well wishes for the next exciting chapter you two are about to enter. I can not wait to capture another beautiful milestone in your lives this coming fall. Many blessing to you both! xo

Alpine Engagement Session | Kananaskis Country, AB

I loved this summer engagement session with Brendan and Basia so much! They were such a treat to work with! When we'd first started talking about engagement photos, we were really keen to go up in the mountains for a session to showcase their love of the Canadian Rockies. We waited for a good weather window, and wandered up into the alpine of Kananaskis country, Alberta, to enjoy a sunset engagement session amongst the beautiful peaks. 

The evening was perfect. Little to no wind, warm temperatures and incredible views at every turn. We were all very pleased, especially the dog! I love winter very much, but these summery engagement photos have me craving the warmth of the sun, and the opportunity to get up high in the mountains to do more of this style of engagement photos. I love adventurous souls!

Super excited to work with these two beautiful beings again this coming June for their mountain top wedding held at Kicking Horse Mountain Resort. I am super excited to photograph that gorgeous venue again, and get to work with Brendan and Basia for their very special date in the clouds. It will be great!

I hope you're all finding ways to play in the winter sun! Enjoy the photos! xo
