Banff Trash the Dress Photography | Amy & Adam

Tuesday, November 09 2010

With every blog post, I want to start off saying, "I had a blast shooting this!".

Each session has something unique, but fun always plays a BIG part.

Amy and I were talking about a Trash the Dress session way before her actual wedding day. The first location that popped into my head was Banff. Since Amy & Adam live in Calgary (tsk tsk ;), Banff seemed like the perfect choice. So on a lovely October Saturday, I grabbed my trusty gear packed the night before, and started the morning drive. The weather was perfect. A golden hue took over the sky as the sun made its way to the peak.

I had a feeling that it was going to be a great day.

To my dismay, Adam called informing me that it was snowing quite heavily in Calgary. The shoot was scheduled and--rain or shine--we are a go.

I had a feeling that it was going to be an 'interesting' day.

This particular Saturday, I also had an engagement session booked with Rachael & Miles. Rachael also called in about the weather change (blog post coming soon). Luckily though, both shoots were successfully completed.

Banff looked beautiful. All the trees were gently covered by the fluffy white snow. Everything looked so peaceful.

The lighting conditions were ALL over the place. I had never had to re-meter my camera as often as I did that day. Regardless, we managed to get some great shots. We had the sun, the rain and the snow. It was hot one second and freezing cold the next. Amy was a trooper.

I was lucky to capture Amy & Adam’s epic love story in such an inspiring location. You can see the strong love they have for each other. The looks they give, the way they touch, hug and laugh. I lost count at how many times Adam complimented Amy’s beauty … that is truly beautiful.

Without further ado, here are some of their shots we took that day.

For all the ladies out there, Amy’s gown was made by a Canadian designer, Paloma Blanca.

Around Banff, there are loads of vintage images of 'old' Banff. I wanted to capture one, this shot did it

Oh my goodness! These photos are gorgeous, Kinga. Once again, you out-do yourself!

I can't believe how filthy my dress is in that running shot...haha. Trash the Dress indeed!

This shoot was so much fun! I am especially partial to the "man-prop". He sure is handsome! :)

Wow! These photos are amazing! Adam and Amy were both troopers on that cold day, but after seeing these photos, worth it I'd say. Great job guys, especially to the man-prop. Great modelling skills ;)

I especially love that vintage shot. You should send it to Banff and tell them it was taken in 1902 or something :)

You guys both look great!

Is there another session scheduled around the corner in the snow perhaps?

Once again I am amazed by your talent! You are so great at what you do and anyone would be lucky to have you as their photographer.

WOW, the colours in these pictures just POP. Beautiful backdrop to work with and an amazing couple for sure!

Kinga, words cannot express how amazing your pictures keep getting.
