Vikki & Jonathan’s Jasper Engagement Session
It was very exciting news to hear that Vikki & Jonathan had gotten engaged, and it was even more exciting that they wanted to do their engagement session in Jasper. There are so many amazing locations in that area to choose from. They wanted something with the mountain rocks and beautiful mountain lakes, so right away we thought of Horseshoe Lake just south of Jasper. Vikki got her hair and makeup done at the Wild Orchid Salon & Spa. After hair & makeup we headed down to Horseshoe lake together, with the mandatory tourist stop to look at the wildlife along the highway. Vikki had never been to Jasper before, so every turn along the highway brought a new and exciting view. It’s such a breathtaking location that we tend to take for granted since it’s so close to home.
If you haven’t been to Horseshoe Lake we would definitely recommend checking it out the next time you are near Jasper. It’s a short hike from the parking lot to the lake, and when you get to the cliffs above the lake the view is simply spectacular. The colour of the lake such an amazing shade of blue, and the water is so crystal clear you can see the rocks far below the surface. It’s unlike any other place we have seen. Such a beautiful place for an engagement session!
From there we made a short drive over to Athabasca falls. We’ve always wanted to photograph a couple in the rocky canyon where the old river bed used to be. The textures and light helped make a perfect evening for their engagement session. And of course Vikki & Jonathan are such an incredibly cute couple, it was so much fun hanging out with them for the evening and getting to know them better. We really enjoyed our trip, and can’t wait until their wedding next summer.
By the time we got back to Jasper it was starting to get dark, and everyone was quite hungry. Thin-crust pizza is one of Vikki’s favourites, so after talking about our delicious lunch we decided to head back to Famoso Neopolitan Pizzeria together for dinner. We each tried a different kind, and everyone agreed it was a perfect end to the day.
