Scroll back a few squares to see a different angle of this shot. Looks pretty high up, hey? Would you be willing to make the climb?
My first time shooting at Waterfowl Lakes & we got the magical light as the sun was setting behind the mountains. It was the perfect way to end the day with Nikia & Jonathan! My favourite part of elopements is that we can plan to shoot with the best light because you aren't worried about making your guests wait for dinner (although poor Jonathan was starving at this point haha). We gte to plan the day around getting you the best pictures possible while having the best time ever!
Call me crazy (I've been called worse than that!), but in the afternoon before Isis & Nick's elopement at Moraine Lake on Tuesday, I met up with Hailee & Tom for their engagement session! Things could have gone terribly wrong since the shuttle in was going to take two hours to get on & I had no service when I was out there to know they couldn't get there, but luck was on their side when the nice Parks people at the gate let them in! Moraine Lake is gorgeous but it's a hard spot to plan for photos! You just never know if you'll be able to get in! We'd also been chatting about photos for a while & it turns out Tom popped the big question on Friday so their session ended up being an engagement! And how about the fact that Tom is just holding Hailee in this carry/dip like it takes no effort at all???
It was 18 months in the making, but yesterday Isis & Nick travelled to the other side of the world to get married at Moraine Lake. They got ready at the Lodge & we hiked it up the rock pile to get the spot overlooking the Lake. They were joined by about 40 uninvited guests watching from above & I had to yell at people to give them a little space to have their ceremony without a bunch random weirdos crowding around & being in the background... other than that, it was perfect! And, um, anyone else totally in love with Isis's pink dress??
This spot is a dream for an intimate wedding or elopement ceremony... a room for a few to stand with no one going over the edge! Ok, who else is totally freaking out over how gorgeous the light is hitting the mountains in the background? Dreamy!! And those clouds! Perfection!
Oh Peyto, I'm going to miss you. We've had a great summer together, but I wish it could've lasted just a little bit longer... FYI - Peyto Lake is closing for the season for renovations soon... so visit while you still can!
