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.

Ancient Forest Engagement – Prince George BC

The Ancient Forest is one of our favourite places to photograph an engagement session or wedding near Prince George, B.C.  (Also check out this After-Wedding Session we did at the Ancient Forest with Andrea & Clarke) The scenery and vegetation are amazing as you walk along the boardwalk through the forest with so many beautiful shades of green. The Caledonia Ramblers have done such an amazing job with the site, making it accessible for all who want to enjoy an afternoon stroll through these magnificent ancient cedars.

Our latest visit to the Ancient Forest took place for Amy and Warren’s engagement session earlier this year. It’s one of their favourite locations to visit around Prince George as well. We had so much fun walking along the trails, and even found a romantic spot along the stream for some photos.

Here are some of the best photos from their session:

Brittany and Tyler – Maui

On our recent Maui vacation we met up with our fellow photographer friends Brittany and Tyler to do a photoshoot. The first location that came to mind was one of our absolute favourite places anywhere – the magical enchanted rainforest along the Maui coast! Shauna made the beautiful tropical flower crown, and we packed a few dresses from our collection to use for the photoshoot, but we knew the flowy white wedding dress from Storybook Wedding would be the perfect choice.

On the day of the session we met Brittany and Tyler for lunch at one of our favourite restaurants on the island of Maui – Coconut’s Fish Cafe. If you are ever visiting Kihei you have to try this place. The Fish & Chips and Fish Taco’s are simply amazing! Just thinking about them makes us want to book a return trip!

Our first of three photo locations was a family photo session at one of our favourite beaches with a spectacular view, soft sand, and amazing clear water. The light was just right and the waves were incredible… we were wishing we had brought the boogie boards along to have some fun. These three could not be any cuter… what an adorable family!

Before long it was time to head over to the enchanted Maui rainforest. It’s one of those dream locations where we have always wanted to photograph a session, and has been at the top of our photography bucket list since the first time we visited back in 2008. It’s such a magical place and is like nothing else we have seen before. It was so much fun to finally do a session there and we are definitely looking forward to making a return trip some day as well. The results were even better than we could have ever imagined.

We also wanted to take advantage of the scenic cliffs above the coastline, so made the quick trip up the highway. These ended up being some of our favourite photos from the entire trip. The wind was blowing her hair perfectly, with the waves crashing below, and the scenery in the background was simply breathtaking.

As the light faded it was time to head back for dinner. We stopped in for a delicious pizza dinner at Fabiani’s in Wailea. It was the perfect end to an amazing day – one of our favourite days from the entire trip. Thanks so much to Britt and Ty for being such amazing models. We can’t wait until our next Hawaiian Adventure whether it’s a return trip to Maui some day, or our next likely destination on the island of Kauai.

If you would like to book a session of your own please let us know using the contact form link below. We would love to hear from you whether you are planning a wedding, a romantic elopement, or even if you would like to get dressed up again for some more wedding photos in one of our Northern Pixel After Wedding Sessions.

We are almost all booked up for 2016, with weddings and sessions throughout British Columbia. So if you are interested in booking let us know as soon as you can.

Francois Lake British Columbia Wedding

Sonja and Cody’s wedding took place on a beautiful summer day at the Nithi Resort along the shores of scenic Francois Lake in the British Columbia Northern Interior. It was a small intimate wedding with approximately thirty friends and family. Sonja and Cody are from Prince George, but they spend time at the Nithi Resort every summer, so it was the perfect place for their wedding with the campground, the cabins, and of course the great scenery at Francois Lake. Sonja did a beautiful job personalizing the wedding details. We especially loved the wedding reception location between the two cabins with twinkle lights and the picnic tables for seating. Part of the reason we love being wedding photographers is that each wedding is so different and unique. When Sonja and Cody told us that their wedding location was going to be at the Nithi Lake Resort we jumped at the chance to travel somewhere new. Here are some of our favourite photos from their wedding day.

Congratulations once again to Sonja and Cody! And thank you so much for letting us be a part of your beautiful wedding day. We always have such a great time with out of town weddings like this, especially along the lake with such a happy couple and their loving families. Such a great day to look back on!

If you would like to book your own session with Northern Pixel Photography please send us a message using the link to our contact form. We would love to hear from you whether you are planning a romantic mountain elopement, or even if you would like some more wedding photos in one of our Northern Pixel After Wedding Sessions at the Ancient Forest, or especially if would just like to go play in the mountains and take some photos along the way. And of course as you can see from the blog post above, Francois Lake would be the perfect location for a romantic lakeshore elopement. So many great photography possibilities and locations to choose from! But we only have a few openings remaining for weddings and sessions throughout Northern British Columbia in 2016, so please contact us as soon as possible. Thanks for reading and talk to you soon!

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.
