Sabrina and Jonathan - Chateau Lake Louise Wedding

Sabrina and Jonathan traveled from San Francisco to Lake Louise for their "destination wedding". It was a few short weeks after all the flooding and the weather was still very unstable. I hadn't met either of these two before the wedding day (or their families), but any concerns I may have had were erased really quickly after finding out how nice and easy going these two were. The weather created a few planning headaches, but in the end had no impact on their day.

Sabrina and her mom.

They wanted to do some of their portraits before the ceremony. This is them seeing each other for the first time.

Guests enjoyed a great evening during cocktails.

Kristin and Nick - Banff Wedding

I've met with a lot of couples over the years who badly want a small, intimate wedding, but very few actually seem to do it as well as Kristin and Nick did. It kind of felt like they all just drove in to Banff and decided to get married on a whim. I'm sure there was a lot more to it than that, but it seemed that way to me, which is to say they did a great job of living out the dream day they had planned. I am so grateful that in their search for a Banff Wedding Photographer they found me. A big part of the credit for pulling that off has to undoubtedly go to Marisa Miller with It's All in the Details event planning.

I'm starting off with one of Kristin and her parents just before she met up with Nick for their portrait session.

Big, fast moving clouds created some dramatic lighting throughout the afternoon.

This photo was taken 12 seconds before the one below.

12 seconds later. Probably my favourite portrait of the day.

Nick and his brothers (groomsmen).

After the ceremony the whole wedding walked over to the Maple Leaf Grille for dinner.

Food always seems to taste better when you are sitting next to firewood.

Nick is a teacher, so I thought it was pretty funny that he was basically doing his homework (his speech) seconds before it was due.

After dinner everyone sauntered down main street to the dance floor at the YMCA.

Nick's brothers and their better halves.

First dance.

Lauren and Matt - Banff Springs Wedding

Lauren and Matt.... I love it when good things happen to nice people. They were treated to perfect weather which only made their Banff wedding that much better.

Stephanie from Lynn Fletcher Weddings is consistently amazing at what she does (planning and decor) and again made my job all the more enjoyable. Thank you.

Deborah and Brendan - Canmore Wedding

Yes, these two really are as happy as they seem in the photos! The ceremony and reception was at Silvertip Resort

The two of them photographed separately before seeing each other at the ceremony.

His mom is going to be thrilled, but I love it!

As an extra bonus I got to work with a few of my favourite wedding vendors. Gerard is the owner/operator of Highland Executive Chauffeur and Limousine Rentals and he is the best in the business, period.

Here comes the bride in the '52 Bentley.

My favourite image from the day. Gerard tuning the engine in the background.

I was also happy to see that Barb Laberge of Cake Creations had made their cake. Barb is one of the sweetest people you will ever meet and her skill at making cakes is amazing. Barb is probably not happy that I am showing the back of the cake here, but I liked the perspective. Even the back of Barb's cakes are pretty.

During speeches.

Later in the night....

Andreea and Ian - Maligne Lake Wedding

These two from Ontario made Maligne Lake the "destination" for their wedding. After the ceremony they took all the wedding guests on a lake cruise. Such a fun day!
