Rocky Mountain Helicopter Wedding

Vanessa and Nathan’s wedding day was one of the most amazing experiences we have been a part of, with their wedding ceremony at the Mount Robson amphitheatre (360 degree mountain views!), reception at the Tete Jaune Hall, and a helicopter trip to Mount Terry Fox for their wedding portraits at the top of the Rocky Mountains.

The girls were getting ready at the Glacier Inn near Tete Jaune, with lots of laughs and happy moments throughout the morning. Shauna even got to share her love of vintage jewellery with Vanessa and her bridesmaids, as many of them had beautiful heirloom antique rings that Shauna was more than happy to take photos of for them.

Meanwhile, the guys were getting ready at the Valemount Retreat, but not before heading out to Mount Robson to put up the wedding signs to help make sure the guests could find the ceremony location at the Robson Shadows Amphitheatre. There was low lying clouds on the day of the wedding, so Mount Robson wasn’t visible in the background, but it didn’t take away from a truly amazing location with mountain views in all directions.

After their wedding ceremony we headed down the hill to the Fraser River for some bridal party photos which was a beautiful clear mountain green-blue – a fantastic backdrop for some wedding photos. From there it was a quick trip back to Valemount where we met our pilot at the Robson Helimagic helicopter base for the flight up to the top of Mount Terry Fox. It had snowed a few days before and while it had melted down along the highway there was still snow on the ground at our photo location, which only added to the beauty of it all. Other than the wind it was completely silent up there, and with views in all directions it was definitely one of the most amazing experiences we have been a part of. We all took a moment at the end to soak it all in before heading back down.

By this time all the guests had arrived at the Tete Jaune Hall for the wedding reception, and were waiting outside for the grand helicopter entrance as we descended upon the hall. From there it was time for dinner, and then on to the wedding speeches which involved a number of heartfelt moments during speeches along with a very entertaining freestyle rap from the bride’s sisters. Before we knew it the dancing began and everyone had a great time dancing the night away. Here are some of our favourite photos from a truly fantastic wedding day. Thank you so much to Vanessa & Nathan for having us there to be a part of your day!

Mountain Engagement Session, Valemount BC

We met Vanessa & Nathan for their engagement session at Kinbasket Lake, which is one of their favourite places in the Valemount, British Columbia Rocky Mountain area. We always love taking photos in the mountains near Jasper and Mount Robson, and can’t wait to make a return visit to explore this area further. Winter started to arrive early with a fresh snowfall in the mountains, but it only helped add to the beautiful scenery with a fresh dusting of snow at the higher elevations.

Here are some of our favourites from their Valemount engagement session, and be sure to check back soon for photos from their wedding day where we joined them in a helicopter to the top of Mount Terry Fox for their newlywed portraits.

Marnie & Alejandro’s Farm Wedding – Prince George BC

Marnie & Alejandro were married on a beautiful summer day in the barn at the bride’s family farm near Prince George BC. We first met them while photographing her sister Megan’s wedding last year as they were latin-dancing across the dance floor. We were secretly hoping they would get engaged and that we would get to photograph their wedding as well. Many of Alejandro’s family came all the way from Spain to enjoy the wedding. They added so much celebratory energy with all their colourful outfits, and added to the overall excitement of their wedding day.

Their ceremony took place in the barn with a stunning backdrop of floral hoops and arrangements by the talented Melissa of Something Blue Floral Design. From there the guests enjoyed a variety of lawn games, before the speeches out on the deck, sabering of the champagne bottles, a delicious dinner of salmon & blackened chicken catered by Earl’s Restaurant Prince George for their tent reception, and then back to the barn where everyone danced the night away as the smoky skies created an orange sunset in the background.

Here is the list with some of the vendors from their wedding day, along with some of our favourite photos:

Florals: Something Blue Floral Design

Catering: Earls Prince George
Tents and Dance Floor: It’s Party Time Event Rentals

Sunnyslope B&B Wedding at Cluculz Lake

Vikki & Jonathan were married on a beautiful summer day with their wedding ceremony at the Sunnyslope Bed and Breakfast at Cluculz Lake, and their wedding reception at the Hart Community Centre – one of our favourite wedding recption venues in Prince George, BC. We first met Vikki as a bridesmaid during the second wedding we had ever photographed back in 2011. Over the years we have grown much closer with a few photoshoots, lots of time at Starbucks, and even a trip to Jasper for their engagement session. So we were pretty excited that she was the bride for our 50th wedding.

The morning began at the Sunnyslope Bed and Breakfast where the girls had spent the night. Vikki raved about the B&B’s owners who went all out on a full gourmet breakfast for the girls. There were so many great moments and lots of laughter throughout the morning. Vikki’s hair was done by Cassandra at Hairplay Studio and her makeup by Laura Heagy – Special Occasion Stylist, with an amazing job done by both of them as always. Before long it was time for Vikki to put on her beautiful bridal gown, purchased at the Gallery Bridal Boutique in Prince George.

The ceremony took place indoors at the picturesque Sunnyslope Bed & Breakfast overlooking Cluculz Lake. They have a beautiful curved staircase where Vikki was able to walk down and see her groom for the first time – such a magical moment. For their bridal party and newlywed couple photos we headed back to Prince George with a stop at Lheidli T’enneh Memorial Park (Ft. George Park), before heading up to the Hart Community Centre for their wedding reception. The in-house decor team at the Hart Community Centre is amazing at bringing a wedding couple’s Pinterest dreams to life, the service is always fantastic and the food is always delicious – such a great place for a wedding. Here are some of our favourite photos from their wedding day.

Winter Engagement Photo Session – Prince George BC

We first met David while photographing his sister Jenna’s wedding in Smithers BC, so were very excited to hear that he was now getting married as well and wanted us to photograph their wedding too. David & Natasha asked for a winter engagement session. We had to wait a while this year but the weather finally cooperated enough on a weekend when they would be in Prince George. It was snowing throughout their session so we had lots of fun playing in the snow and enjoying the beautiful winter day. Here are some of our favourite photos from their session.
