It’s been a while since I last posted something here in this section! I am happy to have a really nice session to show today, an after wedding photo shoot at the beautiful Emerald Lake in Canada. The pictures are stunning, they were taken by someone really dear to me—though we never actually met—whom I contacted in the early stages of existence of the blog and who’s been extremely supportive and kind ever since. No details, no DIY for this session, just the lesson, once again, that maybe backdrop & surroundings are the one detail you may wanna think of when looking for the perfect venue and place to get married.

The word of the photographer.
What made this session special and unique was the timing of it. Heather and Alejandro had contacted me early in the year about shooting their wedding and at that point I was already booked for a wedding in the city I live in, Edmonton Alberta. Heather was interested in another option though, that if I was not able to shoot the wedding day could we do the wedding portraits a day or two after the ceremony. I personally loved the idea and after the Edmonton wedding I I hopped in my truck and drove five hours to meet them for a day after session in the Rocky Mountains. Heather is originally from Canada and now lives in Northern California and Alejandro is originally from South America and getting married in the mountains was something that was a dream of theirs. They were married in Canmore and instead of shooting there we drove a little deeper into the mountains and spent the day shooting at Emerald lake, the Resort and then the small mountain town of Field. Late fall in Canada means that the weather can be truly anything and even though our day started with some heavy cloud and light rain we finished in the evening as the clouds opened up and some light sunset. We were also pretty lucky to have the elk photobomb a few shots as they traversed along the Kicking horse river.
It was a beautiful afternoon and I could not have been more pleased to be there. Heather and Alejandro are beautiful people and very genuine and they remind me of why I love my career!
