The area around Field, BC and Yoho National Park provides some of the most stunning Canadian Rockies scenery for Emerald Lake wedding photographers. Turquoise waters, jagged peaks and a natural bridge over a raging river? Count me in!
Getting Ready at Two Different Venues
Sometimes as an Emerald Lake wedding photographer I have to be in two places as once! Heather was getting ready at the Chateau Lake Louise while Danny was at Emerald Lake Lodge, so I started with Heather in the early morning by photographing her and her bridesmaid getting ready. Danny created an illustrated book that recounted how they met and first fell in love with each other... what a thoughtful gift!
After getting some outdoor photos of Heather and her bridesmaid, I drove to Emerald Lake Lodge to catch up with Danny and the guys and see how they were coming along. As their Emerald Lake wedding photographer I photographed every moment of their morning from getting ready, opening gifts and of course more traditional portraits.
A Perfect Winter Day for Emerald Lake Wedding Photography
It was on a calm and mild winter day that Heather and Danny officially tied the knot in the presence of their family, friends and their Emerald Lake wedding photographer. The ceremony was full of laughter and tears of joy and it was so wonderful to be a part of it, even if I had to see everything through the viewfinder on my camera! For couple's photos we went to the Natural Bridge and around Emerald Lake, capturing unique angles of the rugged mountains and some creative couples portraits.
Emerald Lake is a wonderful location for engagement photos too!

An Intimate Wedding Reception at Cilantro Cafe
As an Emerald Lake wedding photographer I get to see a lot of wedding receptions, but this one at Cilantro Cafe was one of my favourite! The room was really nicely decorated with lots of rustic, forest-inspired items and lit by dozens of candles. The food was amazing and the band kept everyone on their feet dancing the night away. What a wonderful way to celebrate the beginning of something beautiful!
