Alex and Mel: Go west!
I first met Alex in college. Occasionally, we would work together on a group project; most of the time, we worked hard playing euchre in the cafeteria. After graduation we stayed in touch through the powers of the internet, eventually I found myself with an inbox message from Alex inquiring about shooting his upcoming wedding with his new fiancé Mel.
It was great news to hear about their engagement and quite an honor to be selected to photograph their wedding day. Although Alex and Mel lived in Edmonton (at the time), they would be getting married back east in Guelph!
Plans were coming together nicely! Eventually we came across the subject of an engagement shoot. We found ourselves mulling over options on when and where to shoot when an opportunity arose!
I was booked to fly to the Calgary area for a wedding that summer and the idea hit me! Why not do an engagement shoot in Banff while I’m in town! Mel and Alex were thrilled about the idea and planned a camping trip in the National Park during my time out west!
We met up with the couple and took a drive around to a few different spots including Lake Moraine, Rundle Mountain and downtown Banff! The weather didn’t exactly cooperate perfectly with our plans but we still made the best of it! I hope you enjoy these selections from their engagement shoot!
