Starting last year, we have the pleasure of our very talented photographer – Richard, leading our White Collection. The following is a destination prewedding in Banff.
As storied editorial photographers, engagement and pre-wedding photo shoots continue to be some of our most cherished types of shoots to plan and execute. We especially love when we get to travel abroad to new and exciting locales to do these shoots. We absolutely adore getting the vested opportunity to work with couples who are starting out on their illustrious wedding journeys. We are always wildly inspired by the highly creative ideas the engaged couples we work with bring to the table.
Recently for an engagement shoot,we had the pleasure of travelling to the awe-inspiring natural wonderland that is the Canadian Rockies. We specifically shot at Lake Louise, which is located in Banff National Park in Alberta (a renowned World Heritage site). Simply put, Lake Louise is one of the most visually stunning locales to host any inventive engagement, pre-wedding or wedding themed shoot. This glorious piece of natural beauty which is proudly known as Canada’s “Diamond in the Wilderness”, boasts a glacier-fed lake with brilliant teal waters that is framed by the impressive peaks of the Canadian Rockies. Shooting at Lake Louise was such a thoroughly enjoyable and creative experience for us. To celebrate the love and beauty of your nuptials through the art of photography, we can not think of a better place to do so than at Lake Louise.
Whenever we travel for an engagement shoot or wedding to a beautiful locale like Lake Louise, we always like to offer some helpful tips of the trade to help our couples prepare for what is in store:
- ASSEMBLE THE RIGHT TEAM: Once you have secured your photographers, it is important to round out the rest of your creative team to bring to life the most wildly imaginative engagement shoot possible. Finding the ideal videographers, wardrobe stylists, and make-up artists can help any couple fully bring to life their creative vision in any stunning locale.
- PREPARE FOR THE ELEMENTS: When travelling to unpredictable climates such as Alberta, we always advise our clients to pack chic and stylish clothing and accessories that will accommodate a plethora of weather conditions.
- BRING AN ADVENTUROUS/IMAGINATIVE SPIRIT: This last tip is one that we cannot stress enough. It can be quite easy to get caught up and stressed with all that comes with wedding planning, but it is important to never let that dim your adventurous and imaginative spirit. You can absolutely hop on a plane to travel to a new land abroad to hold the engagement photo shoot of your dreams, and still stay true to your wedding planning responsibilities. A little adventure in life is always needed!
