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!
