Banff National Park, Alberta Canada
What an amazing day. What an amazing shoot. For Christy and Jamie’s engagement photos in Banff we talked about wanting to do something adventurous and exciting. We wanted to just hang out and make the day really fun. Neither of us had been to these places in Banff before, so we got Tim Horton’s to go and just drove and explored the area together.
We started by driving up to Peyto Lake and explored and shot there for the first half of our adventure together, and then drove to Moraine Lake for the next part of our shoot! It was so dreamy. The pictures pretty much speak for themselves but man, Banff is so freakin gorgeous. Both Peyto Lake and Moraine Lake have lookouts and they both have the most breathtaking views! I can’t wait to shoot in these places again. They would be perfect locations for an intimate wedding or elopement! They are super easy to get to (just a short walk that most people call a “hike” lol) and there are ways to get around the crowds (what time you go there, etc).
Shooting in the outdoors in a place that feels so huge is completely magical and breathtaking. Banff has such big mountains and forests and lakes, it made me feel like such a tiny little person shooting in the middle of enormous-ness haha. It’s pretty epic.
Thanks Christy + Jamie for such a fun day inviting me to capture your relationship and shoot your engagement photos in Banff. I’m so glad we’re friends and so happy for you two! Exploring Peyto Lake + Moraine Lake in was just so much fun!
Here’s another shoot I did at Moraine Lake
