A few weeks ago my friend Susan (from Picture That Photography) and I took a little roadtrip into the mountains to scout locations for weddings that we have coming up this summer. Our first stop was in Canmore and more specifically, at Silvertip Resort where I have a wedding in July. We wandered through to see where the reception was going to be (oh my, what a gorgeous room that will be for a wedding reception!) and then wandered off on the grounds around the golf course to look for good locations for photos. Afterwards we wandered over to the outdoor ceremony location is and we were lucky to catch it while it was all set up for a wedding. What a breathtaking spot with the mountains in the background and beautiful skies overhead. I really can’t wait to photograph the wedding here!
After leaving Silvertip, we travelled down the road and spotted this big pile of what looked like sand and rocks. I still don’t really know what it is, but it looks darn cool and I think I would like to use the spot for photos some time.
We also wandered into the town of Canmore and found a dry riverbed filled with awesome rocks and a beautiful backdrop of trees and mountains. I have such fabulous plans for this location! Canmore has such fabulous options for amazing wedding photos.
While I think all these landscape photos are nice, all I really want to do is get people into the pictures to make them that much more interesting! I’m never going to be a landscape photographer, I just need the energy and interest that people bring to really complete the picture. In the meantime, here’s my landscapes… just wait til I get to fill them with people this summer!!
