Sunny Mountainside Escape . Lake Minnewanka-Banff, AB

It was my last day in Banff and even though my entire body was thriving on 5% energy, my heart remained 100% full and my eyes filled with tears of how at AWE I was of my weekend spent in Banff photographing my first big destination wedding with one of my best friends and waking up at 4am for the past three days just to go climb the mountains with some of the most incredible couples in the entire world!!! Can’t wait to make plans to come back here and continue to expand my business beyond Minneapolis.
We spent our last day bouncing all over the park, to downtown Banff to fuel up caffeine before our shoots, Lake Moraine for our stylized elopement shoot, and to Lake Minnewanka for part II with both of own couples. McKinley and Darin were nothing but a dream to work with. They had traveled all the way from Edmonton to Banff just to take photos!
These two display the most natural and beautifully unapologetic affection for one another. Every kiss, dirty secret whispered, and intimate moment was all them and I couldn’t been more honored to have spent some of my last moments out in Banff capturing their unconditional love for each other.
