Rimrock Resort Hotel Wedding | Banff, AB | Vintage Wedding

I loved getting to photograph this vintage style wedding at the Rimrock Resort Hotel in Banff, Alberta this past July 2016. Carlee and Mark wanted to have an intimate roof top wedding among close family and friends, surrounded by the the beautiful Canadian Rockies.

I also very much loved getting to photograph this couple within the beautiful Rimrock hotel. The couple had requested a first look within the hotel, and we found the perfect room to host this part of the day. Divas Cocktail Bar provided the perfect backdrop to host this very vintage looking wedding. It was a real treat getting to photograph this couple within a room full of black and white photographs of hollywood actors and actresses from past to present. It was the perfect backdrop for this couples first look.

These are some of my favourite photos from the day. Between the bubbly excitement the couple felt for each other getting married, to the lovely ceremony Robin White provided on a beautiful rooftop patio in the sun, all of it was a joy to photograph. 

Once the ceremony and diner had passed, the couple asked for one more bride/groom portrait session at sunset. We could not have asked for better conditions for this. We had sunshine, rainbows, a beautiful sunset bride/groom portrait session and a full mood rising on a warm, clear evening in the Rockies. To add to this magic, it was a true pleasure to get to photograph such a loving couple within all of this. Thank you for bringing me along to capture your intimate wedding within the beautiful Canadian Rockies, Carlee and Mark. I wish you both a life of love and happiness together. xo

Kananaskis Country, Alberta ~ Elopement at Mount Engadine Lodge

The season of blogging is finally here! It is so nice to have the time to start sharing all of the wonderful weddings and engagement sessions I got to be a part of this past spring, summer and fall. This has been a great year for Jody Goodwin Photography!

To start of this years weddings, here is a sweet engagement session and elopement I had the pleasure of joining in Kananaskis country area this past May. Sara and Justin are both avid outdoors people who wanted a wedding and engagement session that reflected how they share their time in the mountains.

This lovely, earthy elopement was beautifully based at Mount Engadine Lodge along The Smith Dorrien highway in Kananskis country. If you have never had the chance to visit this gorgeous little nook in the mountains, you are missing out! It is quaint, cozy and the perfect place to host a small/intimate mountain wedding away from the hustle and bustle of cities.

I hope you enjoy this collection of images from both their engagement session, which also took place near Mount Engadine Lodge, and their wedding. I wish you both the very best, Sara and Justin. Thank you for bringing me along to capture your love of the mountains, nature and each other. xo
