I have always wanted to photograph a wedding in Canmore, so when Dani and Jon came to me last year and told me their plans, I knew I had to book them. The day started at the Fire Mountain Lodge in Canmore, where they were both staying in rooms next door to each other. We had to co-ordinate our photos carefully to make sure they never saw each other. After shooting both Dani and Jon inside, we ventured out front to do some wedding party photos. It all went by so quickly as we were having so much fun. The weather was great but that all soon changed.
The wedding ceremony was held outdoors up at Silvertip. The ceremony site had a gazebo that was strategically placed with a stunning view of the Rockies as a backdrop. It was so beautiful that it looked fake. As Dani walked down the aisle with her father, it started to lightly snow some big flakes. It had a magical feeling to it and I couldn’t wait to see how it would turn out in the photos. It was so much fun running around everywhere making photos of the ceremony while using such a beautiful scene. By the time it was over, it was sunny and warm again.
Once the ceremony was completed, I knew where I wanted to take Dani & Jon. It’s a place I have driven by so many times. Every time I drive by it, I always think to myself that I have to shoot photos here one day. Today was that day! As we climbed in elevation, it got cooler but we found some gorgeous light! When we arrived at our spot, I was pumped to get rocking and so were D&J. We got some great stuff up there.
When we arrived at the reception we found ourselves magnetically attracted to the amazing candy bar that Dani’s mom and her friend Cindy had setup. You only need to look at the photos of the candy bar to see what I am talking about. It was the highlight of the night for me when it came to photographing details!
Congrats Dani & Jon. I couldn’t have asked for a better couple to spend the day with and create memories for. Your wedding was fantastic, your personalities awesome and I wish you all the best. I am ecstatic that you both love your wedding photos. I can’t wait to start designing your album.
