It was a stunning morning at Chateau Lake Louise for an incredible wedding and I have to say Lauren and Travis wedding was absolutely FABULOUS.

Traveling from Texas, Lauren + Travis was truly treated to a mixed bag of weather in The Canadian Rockies. You got it, it was hot, cold, snowy, rainy, windy and sunny, you name it we had it. Welcome to the Rockies!

Creative wedding day photography

When the day started for me (early morning) in the at Lake Louise, I quickly got into my creative photography groove as everything about it was inspirational. I mean seriously, take a look at Lauren’s shoes and her details, she covered every detail. Even her gorgeous bridesmaids, they were like a dream team. And let’s not forget the men who I have to say were awesome and hilarious.

So much love and happiness

So much love and happiness was wrapped around this day. All of their friends and family had these huge grins and were excited all day long. Every turn I realized someone was laughing or giggling.  Such warmth sincerely makes my day that much more rewarding as I know the importance of family and love. With my two little boys in my life (Charlie + Henry) my life is full of hugs and love so when I get to see it in other families and their friends it makes me so happy.   Even after photographing for 13.5 hrs I was so beyond exhausted as I’d not stopped all day. There was not one minute during this incredible day that had a down minute it wasn’t until driving home that it sunk in and I got to chill.  Not until you get to see the photographs below will you understand what was involved in this wedding and these are just a few of the photos that are highly retouched.

From the gorgeously designed flowers to Gerrard at the wheel of his stunning 1952 Bentley Mk VI known as Dorothy from Highland Executive this day had it all. This day was  designed and put together by Shannon and her team at Mountainscape Wedding in Banff National Park. I must say, this wedding planning company totally blew my mind away.  I have worked with many planners, but seeing this company at work was a complete pleasure. There were no worries, just fun was to be had by the guest, bride and groom as we vendors took to stage in creating gorgeous work for all clients/guests.

destination wedding photographer

As a Calgary wedding photographer, I often get the pleasure of working in Banff, and Lake Louise as it’s a short drive with no accommodation needed for me. Having the freedom for clients to select a photographer who is located outside of the national park is totally awesome. Come to think about it, half of my weddings are located per year within The Canadian Rockies so it’s like my second home anyway. On a side note, I’m often asked if I travel to photograph weddings or engagement shoots. The answer is yes yes yes. I certainly will travel internationally to photograph a destination weddings. Travel is huge to me. I love. In fact, I’m now opening my doors to destination wedding photography now that my boys are 3 and 5 years of age.

Working with so many talented vendors I’m proud to say that we operate as a team in creating all weddings perfect for our couples. To find out who I worked with, please see them all listed below the final image.
