Troy & Melissa’s Banff Wedding

Troy and Melissa were married at the beautiful Mount Norquay Resort, located in the Rocky Mountains above Banff Alberta. From the moment they contacted us a year and a half ago, we knew it would be an amazing wedding day and we were anxiously awaiting the trip. Melissa is from Prince George and Troy is from Australia. They fell in love while Melissa was teaching over there & decided to get married in one of the most beautiful places in the world – Banff, Alberta. Many of their family and friends from Australia came to Canada for the event and, for some it was their first time here.

We stayed with the wedding party and many of the guests at the Hidden Ridge Resort. What an amazing location nestled in the Rocky Mountains, just a few minutes from downtown Banff. On our way to the Resort we took a wrong turn, which was very fortunate since we came across the perfect location for their first-look session – a long stairway in front of an amazing rock wall.

After Melissa & Troy had their first look session, we met up with the Bridal Party at the Fenland Trail near the Vermillion Lakes. It was a perfect location for photos – with a clear mountain stream and lots of large spruce trees to provide some protection from the rain. If you go there, be sure to bring some bug spray as the mosquitoes were pretty intense.

Before long, it was time to head up Mount Norquay for the wedding ceremony. As we made our way up the hill the skies began to clear off. We pulled over at the Mount Norquay Lookout for a few more photos to take advantage of the scenic lookout above the town of Banff… some of our favourite photos of the day. What an amazing view of the town and the entire valley below!

Their wedding ceremony was originally planned for the balcony at the lodge, but with all the rain it had to be moved indoors. Still a beautiful place for a wedding – the lodge is beautiful with lots of natural light and the food was fantastic. Such an amazing day with so many great memories. Here are some of our favourite photos from Melissa & Troy’s Banff Wedding Day. (Make sure you scroll all the way down – you don’t want to miss their “Day-After Photo Session” at the stunning Moraine Lake!)

The next day we headed out for an After Wedding Session at Moraine Lake near Lake Louise. It is one of the most spectacular and scenic locations in the Rocky Mountains, and we really wanted to take some wedding photos there. We didn’t have time on the wedding day since it’s a bit of a drive from Banff, so the best option was an after wedding photo session. There was quite an audience with the tourist cameras going off all around us, so we moved down to a quieter location, which was the perfect spot to take advantage of the amazing blue water as a background. There was even a bit of a wind to catch the veil. It was so much fun, and we can’t wait until our next after wedding session. Here are some of our favourites.

Jen & Andrew – Jasper Engagement

We first met Jen & Andrew at Jen’s twin sister’s wedding last summer. Andrew caught the garter belt, and Jen wrestled one of the other bridesmaids for the bouquet. They wanted an engagement session in the mountains, and we were already planning another mountain shoot for mid-July, so we met for their engagement session in Jasper, Alberta.

As we headed south from Jasper to Horseshoe Lake and Athabasca Falls, we watched the mountains disappear behind a massive dark storm cloud. So we decided to turn around and head to Patricia and Pyramid Lake. We arrived to find the sun was shining and the scenery was spectacular. And then during the shoot we found out it was their anniversary. Everything was turning out perfectly! Here are some of our favourites from their session…
