Jessica+Richard=Classic {Part II} | Banff Wedding Photographers

Banff Wedding Photographers

New locations are always inspiring to us, even more so when we're also working with a beautiful couple like Jessica+Richard. While we've been fortunate to photograph destination weddings in over 20 countries, this was our first in one of Canada's (and our!) favourite holiday spots: Banff, Alberta! The area's natural beauty combined with the drama of the iconic Banff Springs Hotel made the perfect backdrop for Jessica+Richard's classic wedding. Some of our favourites from their day.

The lovely Jessica gets ready.

This is one of my favorite images of the day, if not the season!

Richard, with his gift from his bride.

Though forest fire smoke obscured the mountains, the outdoor ceremony was dramatic nevertheless.

And full of laughter.


Transported by trailer from Vancouver, this mint condition 1930's era Lincoln convertible from Richard's father's car collection added an element of elegance (and a lot of oohs & ahhs and requests for pictures from hotel & wedding guests alike!).

The smoke outdoors meant we explored the nooks and crannies of the hotel, a UNESCO World Heritage Site that is over a century old. LOVE the old-world feel of this venue!

The smoke finally cleared so we had some time for more portraits outside.

Love Jessica's "something blue" - her toenails and special anklet given to her by her maid of honor Laura (who happens to be an awesome wedding photographer herself!)

Then it was into the woods,

Over the ruins,

And through the flowers.

Back at the Banff Springs, fabulous wedding designer Amira of Posh Productions, had arranged everything perfectly! Cream, white, & gold is such a lovely color scheme - guaranteed never to go out of style.

Tears & laughter during the speeches.

And lots of fun on the dance floor.

Congratulations, Jessica + Richard!

Jessica+Richard=Classic {Part I} | Vancouver Wedding Photographer

Vancouver Wedding Photographers| Engagement Session

An impeccably restored vintage mustang + cowboy boots + sunset in Vancouver + two of the sweetest people we know = one fun engagement session! We had a blast with Jessica and Richard on their shoot, and their Banff wedding (coming up next!) was definitely one of the highlights of 2010.

Sunshine & Stanley Park - always a classic combo!

Love this spread from their C+L GuestBook.

This car & this couple almost caused a few accidents as people braked along the road to check them both out!

Jessica is one beautiful country girl. Richard's cowboy hat shows up at their wedding too, along with some great country music and a whole lot of romance & love. Another spread from their C+L GuestBook.

So hard to pick a favourite from this session, but there's something I just love about this one.

Ashley+Jason=Sincerity {Part III} | Vancouver Wedding Photographers

Vancouver Photographer| Indian Wedding

Ashley & Jason's reception was one BIG party! With even more color, more sparkle, and more emotion than the day before! Starting with Ashley's new outfit and new jewelery. And gold Louboutins!

Ashley looked gorgeous. I love the simplicity of this spread in their album.

Jason was also rocking a new wardrobe and new clean-shaven look.

Some portraits before heading to the reception.

I love how Ashley looks at Jason.

Another two-page spread from their album.

A white Rolls for the wedding and a black one for the reception - love the moodiness of these two images.

The Royal King Palace looked sumptuous with a black damask & red roses decor design.

Cake and First Dance!

And more dancing. Because after all, you really haven't seen dancing til you've been to an Indian wedding!

Hundreds of people on the dance floor.

Jason showing his moves.

Ashley & her sister.

This is one of my favourite images from the night - Jason & grandmother getting down!

And the party kept going throughout the night! Great times - congrats Ashley+Jason!
