Banff Engagement Session | Emma & David

Banff Engagement Session | Emma & David


Emma and David reached out to me back in the winter when they were planning their trip to Banff, Alberta. The couple had recently become engaged and while they were visiting from their home town in Florida, they thought it would be the perfect opportunity to capture their recent engagement! And I must say, Banff is the perfect place to do so. Emma and Dave arrived in  May. Now, if you are from Alberta you know that the weather in May can be hit or miss. Some years its hot and sunny while other years we still get huge blizzards. The couple wanted to have their pictures done at either Moraine Lake or Lake Louise. Unfortunately both of those lakes are at such a high elevation, they were  still covered with ice and snow. But as the day approached, I checked my handy weather app and it looked like it was going to be a beautiful day!

I met Emma and Dave at their hotel bright and early. We traveled together in my car out to Lake Minnewanka, chatting the whole way and getting to know each other. As we arrived the sun had just come over the mountains, the skies were a bright blue, and the lake presented a sense of calmness. We wandered around the lake and found the cutest wood dock to use with the most spectacular views.

After the first stop we headed to Two Jack lake. we lucked out again because as soon as we were done at this spot, a huge bus of tourists had just arrived! Two jack has to be one of my all time favorite lakes. We got so many good pictures of the mountains reflecting off the lake. At one point Dave took off his shoes and put his feet in the water. He was shocked at how cold the glacier lake actually was, and I was shocked he actually did it. Anything for the gram right?!?!

We ended our session in a huge field surrounded by endless views. I seriously had so so so much fun with these two and am beyond grateful that the wonderful app of Instagram brought us together. I will forever remember my time with this special couple and cant wait to see what the future holds for them! Hopefully one day I can make it out to Florida and visit these awesome humans.
