Banff Elopement – Havilah Heger Photography
Shooting this Elopement at Lake Moraine at Sunrise was a dream. Lake Moraine, in Banff National Park is such a popular place to visit and photograph. It’s huge blue lake and mountain views are stunning. What a magical place for a sunrise elopement!
Rae and Jake flew in from Seattle WA and spent the weekend with some of their closest friends in a cute cabin in the mountains near Banff. I joined them the night before and together we drove to Moraine Lake the next morning, way before sunrise to make it there in time for morning light, when the mountains would start to show behind the clouds. Rae had always dreamed of eloping at Moraine Lake because of the stunning blue lake that is surrounded by mountains.
When we got there, it was still pretty cloudy and foggy and you could hardly see the mountains! We were all so sad and anxious, hoping some of the fog would roll away and the view would clear up a bit. We waited in our warm vehicles for a while, and soon started seeing mountains pop from behind the fog. Yay!!
We walked up the trails and were all breath taken by the beautiful views. Rae and Jake exchanged their private vows in the presence of lots of mist, mountains, a huge blue lake (Moraine Lake is SO blue), and dear friends who had flown all the way to Banff to be there with them on this special day. It was beautiful. They ended their day by grabbing brunch together in Banff city and then went bowling together afterwards!
Thank you Rae + Jake for letting me be a part of your story and this sweet day of yours. So so happy for you guys, Lake Moraine looked good on you two. What an honour to shoot such a beautiful Elopement during Sunrise at Lake Moraine.
