Engagement Photos in Banff National Park | Amanda + Eric

It is with a great pleasure, that I share highlights from Amanda and Eric's engagement session. We met for the first time out in Banff National Park and spent hours together, roaming, laughing and creating beautiful photos.

A great reminder of a time and place, a memory of a feeling, when they lived in Alberta and was about to embark on a new adventure.

Banff wedding photography | Meghan + Rob

I must confess...

I had the most amazing time with this wedding. It was my first wedding in Canada where I actually knew the couple as friends. Meghan, grew up with Leah's sister in good old Morden, MB. We were all in Taiwan together.  If you went on adventures in Taiwan together - you've clocked some time.

I enjoyed shooting the wedding, and although I was paid as a professional, I felt like a friend the entire time.  A more behind the scenes kinda feel to the day. 

We had crazy weather. Rain for the morning, cold setting in, then snow to end it.  

For me, having everything hyper focused, it was beautiful to see the love and respect between Rob and Meghan, their friends and family.  What touched me, was the dedication from one of Meghan's Bridesmaids.  Who has liver cancer, received chemo during the day, missioned up the side of mountain paths, but would not miss this celebration.  Meghan and Rob bring this out in the people surrounding them - you can't not want to love them.

Secondly, Canmore, Banff - the mountains. Oh the mountains. When Leah told me way back when that she was from Canada, in my head I saw the Rockies.  Who knew there was not a single bump in Manitoba... 

So, I am making plans to shoot more out there. It is stunning! 

I am really happy with the photos and hope you enjoy some of my favourites from the day.

A preview of things to come

I've had a busy last couple of weeks. Busy with the kind of crazy that fills your heart with longing when you think back on it, after a couple of months.

Here is a look at what we have been up to and what will be featured here on the blog in the next couple of weeks.

Strip away the bells and whistles - it's a boy in front of a girl - asking her to love him.
