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

Winter Family Session at Camp Chief Hector

This is one of my most favorite family sessions I have ever had the pleasure of photographing! This session was from last winter, when Jana and Ben were expecting their second child and wanted to document what their life was like before their new addition arrived, and changed their arrangement at Camp Chief Hector.

I hesitated on sharing this session, as it was done a long time ago. I decided to share it, as it is the style of family photos I love to do most. I love getting to document families in their natural environment, doing what they would normally do. I also loved the idea of getting to photograph what their life was like at Camp Chief Hector.

At the time, Ben was finishing veterinary school and was there to care for the horses while they both lived on the property. The day of our session the snow came down heavy and plentiful, making an almost dreamy background for the photos. Their son was so cute and completely stole my heart! His love of snow matched mine in every way. He giggled with delight playing in it and smiling to his hearts content getting to be outside with his family.

I hope you enjoy the wintery looking photos! I definitely recommend family photos at all times of the year, especially if you are a family who loves to play outside. It can make for some really timeless, and interesting looking photos that reflect the way you live and love as a family.

Enjoy! xo
