It’s been a dream of mine to shoot a Banff engagement session since I put my sights and heart on the Rocky Mountains and moved to Edmonton. Knowing the direction I was headed 10 months in advance, I was open with all of my clients back home in Ottawa and it sparked the interest of these two love birds.
They’re both travellers and have a serious love for the mountains as well so it was a no brainer, especially once I showed them this Maligne Lake engagement session from last October. Flying into Calgary, they made the trip from Ottawa up to Lake Minnewanka and I can say that it was so worth it. Especially when Madison’s text message after I sent her the gallery was this:
I’m out with all of my friends crying at the moment.
Oh my baby Jesus.
This is incredible.
I’m crying LOL.
I can’t thank you enough.
These are amazing.
The best photos I’ve ever seen.”
Having clients fly across the country for their engagement session to be in Banff is probably one of the biggest compliments I’ve ever received and it makes me so grateful that being a wedding photographer is my job. Even more, is that these two trusted me to photograph their wedding next summer even though I was moving across the country.
Madison and Jeremy, thanks for all the laughs and the adventure in the mountains my very first weekend living out west. Who knew that writing off my car would lead to meeting the two of you! Proof that everything happens for a reason. I cannot wait to photograph your wedding next August back home in Ontario, I’m sure it’s going to be one wild party. Until then…
Feel free to add some ambiance to the images if you wish
