Meagan and Shaun travelled from New York City to take in the sights and sounds of Banff National Park. With heavy smoke in the air from one of the worst forest fire seasons in recent memory a lot of the mountains were obscured and the air was hard to breathe. Shaun has popped the question a few days prior and they really wanted to capture the emerald colour of the glacial lakes and the rugged skyline of the Rocky Mountains in their engagement photos. Knowing that the smoke would be thick in the valleys, I took them up to Peyto Lake and Bow Lake to take some stunning photos of classic Banff National Park scenery. We were lucky to escape the smoke the higher we drove, and were rewarded by 360 degree views with just the slightest haze. In fact, the smoke made for some very interesting colours and effects in their photos.
