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.
One of my favorite image shot that day

I am not sure what Adam said to Amy, but it made her laugh...a lot
The shades were a nice touch
Amy loves Adams kisses :)
I know you can't tell, but the weather changed in a matter of seconds. Snow was falling like mad.
In seconds, the mountains begun hiding behind snow clouds
10 minutes after that, the sun came out again and so did Amys smiles
Around Banff, there are loads of vintage images of 'old' Banff. I wanted to capture one, this shot did it
It got chilly by the water, but Amy did not mind
I love the mountains

This was the last shot we took together on our session - so in love
