A gorgeous wedding of Emily and Steve that was located at the stunning Banff Springs Hotel and I have to say, it was absolutely gorgeous.
Okay, by now you are likely going to notice that every wedding I get to photograph is absolutely fabulous. But they are, seriously they’re totally and utterly mind blowing.
Photographing a wedding by me as you might have noticed by now is more than being commissioned to cover a day. I believe in love, family connection, creating art work that can be displayed on walls. If I can capture that richness and ultimately create a piece of art work that has an organic story within I am beyond happy.
“Life is long but yet it passes by fast”
Life is long but yet it passes by fast. For some reason it seems to pass faster and faster the older one gets so using photography to slow down moments in time is quite the privilege. To celebrate moments in time, it’s important to have a big photo printed and have it placed over the sofa, bed or dinning room table means that time that flew by can be enjoyed and cherished time and time again – for years.
Emily and Steve held hands, kissed naturally, laughed with each other and not at each other and the family hugs and love was something I’ll never forget. It was a sensational day where on the drive home it made me so happy that was able to capture these photos for them.
Their ceremony was booked to be outside but mother nature had different plans for us. The Ivor Petrak Room (view this winter wedding at the Banff Springs Hotel) was our gorgeous ceremony venue and the reception was located in the The Alhambra Ballroom. I love both locations at the hotel and I know very well. In fact even though I’m a Calgary wedding photographer I shoot often in Banff. Having staying at the Banff Springs Hotel for over 100+ days over the years I know the hotel really well.
“being just a natural daylight wedding photographer would suck and would not do”
We explored the hotel for gorgeous areas to photograph during Emily and Steve’s creative session. Using my imagination, creative skills during the bad light or mixed light I really dig deep into my set of skills to give my clients 100%. On days like this, being just a natural daylight wedding photographer would suck and would not do. As a professional wedding photographer one should have tons of skills and not just rely on natural light. Having this incredible venue and not being able to shoot well within the bad light would be terrible for a bride and groom. I love hard and tricky situations and to be honest I thrive on it. Anyone can shoot in natural light but hardly anyone can shoot creativity in bad light. Yes, it costs a bit more to hire someone who knows what they’re doing but it’s worth it.
Emily and Steve, I love you both and the love you have for each other and your family. Thank you so much for an amazing day.
Enjoy your photographs, you both were fabulous.
