There had been a Yoho Blow in the early hours of the morning that left Field without power and had blown the snow out of the trees so when we approached Emerald Lake Lodge we were surprised and delighted to discover it was a living snowglobe for Casey & Jen's elopement. The soft falling snow was absolutely gorgeous and made it feel magical. There were so many moments where we were the only people outside or in the lodge which felt so peaceful and exactly what I would wish for an elopement.

I always tell brides that colour really photographs well for winter weddings so I was delighted to see Jen's stunning outfit and accessories which looked beautiful with the fresh snow. Kevin and I were honoured to get to sign as their witnesses and left feeling inspired.

I absolutely LOVE photographing elopements at Emerald Lake Lodge . Please get in touch at [email protected] if you'd like to chat with me about photographing your day.
