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.





Married!



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!
