♥ Lake Louise Engagement Skating photos ♥
manda & Jeffrey met while working in NYC together. Over one Christmas break they decided to leave the city to go skiing and found themselves exploring Lake Louise, Canada in Banff National Park for the first time. That trip began a new tradition for the couple and they have since returned for the last 4 years to go ice skating on a frozen Lake Louise and skiing together. This Memorial Day Jeffrey proposed in NYC and they have decided on hosting a mountain wedding at the Fairmont Banff Springs known as the Castle in the Rockies in Banff, Alberta, Canada. This recent holiday trip included wedding planning but they carved out a morning on New Years Day to meet me to photograph them doing one of their favourite activities together skating by the ice castle on Lake Louise. Having only just met them in the lobby moments before Amanda & Jeffrey needed no direction to express their playful, romantic and loving relationship in a place that they love.

I often tell couples to include a pop of colour for winter photos so I was beyond thrilled when Amanda wore a red tutu. It was such a joy to photograph!

♥ Peyto Lake * Emerald Lake Engagement Session ♥
risten & Spencer are hosting a mountain wedding in Banff next year at Buffalo Mountain Lodge so we decided to photograph their engagement portraits in a different location. I have always wanted to photograph a couple at Peyto Lake so I was thrilled when Kristen & Spencer said they were up for anything and made the drive out. I asked Kristen if she had a bright coloured flowy dress and she showed up the perfect dress to make their photos pop. She was tough because there was snow on the ground and a chill in the air...I had my down vest on. We had a stunning day for photos.

I love how easily these two laugh together. I can't wait for their wedding if this was just a sneak peek into their day.
Spencer knew that Kristen would want to pick out her own engagement ring so he had this amazing custom necklace made to propose to Kristen on top of a mountain on a hike together.

♥ Emerald Lake Engagement Session - Jessica + Ryan ♥
essica & Ryan are hosting a destination winter wonderland wedding at Emerald Lake in 2017. They flew up from San Francisco to spend some time in the mountains and we all met at Emerald Lake for a rainy engagement session. These two were up for anything and we shared a lot of laughs under umbrellas dodging the downpours and embracing the rain. Jessica wore my dream dress which looked stunning against Emerald Lake.

I can't wait for their wedding day!!

♥ Lake Louise Engagement session - Gillian + Liam ♥
'm excited to be photographing Gillian & Liam's mountain wedding this fall. Gillian & Liam planned a romantic getaway over Valentine's week-end where they spent time at their venue, cross country skied, ate good food and relaxed in a hot tub with a mountain view. They asked me if they could meet up with me to take their engagement portraits in Lake Louise while they were out. It gave Gillian a chance to do her hair & make-up trial and the perfect opportunity for me to get to know them a little as a couple before their wedding day.

In the winter our good photo light is limited so I was thrilled when Gillian & Liam were willing to get up early so we could capture the beautiful morning light which also had the added bonus of us beating the crowds. After we finished our session Gillian & Liam headed to the Chateau for their favourite onion soup to warm up before getting to spend dinner with family. A perfect week-end in the mountains!

♥ Banff Engagement Portrait - Erin + Ryan ♥
e had just come out of a rainy week and were given a stunning evening for Erin & Ryan's mountain engagement session. I was thrilled that they asked if they could include their dog! I love it when couples include their dogs. They came prepared with a bag full of treats and toys and their handsome pup Indiana proved to be a perfect model. I instantly feel in love with Erin & Ryan's style. A pop of colour and a heart print dress that moved beautifully in the wind. Erin looked gorgeous with her red lips and golden curls. I love engagement sessions because they give me an opportunity to get to know a couple a little before their wedding day.

I can't wait for Erin & Ryan's winter wedding at Baker Creek. I consider an engagement session a sneak peek into a wedding day and our time with Erin & Ryan has made me impatient for winter to arrive so I can see their wedding day unfold.
I absolutely loved their pops of colour. Look at that handsome pup Indiana working it for the camera!
I absolutely love Erin's engagement ring which sparkled against her blue nails.
Gorgeous red lips and golden curls. I loved that Erin included the vintage locket that her sister had gifted her on her own wedding day. It was such a beautiful details.
Summer nights in the mountains left me feeling inspired.
