Your Alberta Wedding Photographer
The Alberta province of Canada covers incredible land featuring lakes, mountains, prairies, forests, and even glaciers.

Tough decisions are still ahead of you, but your one easy decision can be to choose Geoff Wilkings Photography.

If you’ve decided to exchange vows somewhere else in Banff, that’s beautiful as well. The entirety of Banff National Park offers diverse landscapes and views that are great for romantic pictures. As a premier Banff wedding photographer, I can capture all of your favorite moments.
One of these beautiful backdrops in Banff National Park is Moraine Lake. When you see the sun hit the rolling mountains and lake behind you, you’ll fall in love. I’m known as the Moraine Lake wedding photographer who delivers beautiful pictures you’ll be dying to display in your home.
