Lake Louise Wedding – a Winter Elopement in Banff

Where do I even start with this Lake Louise Wedding/winter elopement in Banff?! Nick and Kayla were the sweetest people and flew all the way from Australia to elope in Banff and plan their Lake Louise elopement. We met at Baker Creek Mountain Lodge (which by the way is a perfect location/place to stay if you’re eloping or getting married in the Banff area or near one of the lakes in Banff) to start their adventures winter elopement day. Kayla and Nick stayed at the Lodge a for a few nights before and after their elopement day and it was so cosy and had all the cute cabin vibes. You’ll see in the pictures below 🙂

We met at the lodge at sunrise, I took getting ready photos + candids while they were just hanging out and enjoying the start to their wedding day together. Then Kayla got into her wedding dress (she looked stunning!!!) and I found a cute spot near the cabin for them to do their first look at. It was a quiet chilly morning and these two were just so in love and ready to get married!

Then we headed to their ceremony location! Plan A didn’t quite work because of the weather conditions… BUT we had a plan B, and it was beautiful! They got their wish of being married in the snow haha. The officiant read out letters their family had sent with them from Australia and it was all just so quiet, perfect and intentional. After the ceremony we stopped and shot some couple photos at Lake Louise and then grabbed some brunch in Banff. We ate at Tooloulou’s Restaurant and it was delicious – so many options and their portions were huge!

We ended our time together shooting some more couple portraits at a beautiful lake (at one of my favourite spots) and it was so much fun. Very very windy, but SO much fun. Stephen and I made sure we brought crampons for Kayla and Nick because we were so sure there was going to be slipper snow/ice in the area and didn’t expect them to bring any (or even think of them) from Australia.

What an amazing day with these two amazing souls!! We laughed our heads off together, cried together (their ceremony was SO sweet!), ate the yummies brunch and adventured around Banff for their wedding photos! We love you, Kayla & Nick and loved photographing your Lake Louise Wedding!

Also… Here’s a little video I made them as a surprise gift!
