Summer & MarkBanff Engagement Session

Summer contacted me letting me know her and her fiancé Mark, were going to be travelling out to Banff for the first time and that they wanted to have their engagement photos taken while they were out here. She explained that she was asian and would likely be wearing a red dress for the session. You have no idea how excited I was to hear this! I love the tradition surrounding it and really love how red looks in the landscape. The first time I was able to shoot a red gown was out in Iceland, so needless to say I was very happy to do it again in my own back yard.

Summer and Mark arrived in Banff  looking sharp and ready to go! We had a great time touring around Banff and documenting their session at Lake Minnewanka and Two Jack Lake. Here are some of the images from that day:

Adele & Darren Helicopter Proposal & Engagement Session

A few months back I was contacted by Darren Phillips to photograph his proposal. The plan was to get a helicopter to take us to the top of a mountain where he could then ‘pop the question’. The trick was to not let his girlfriend, Adele, clue in to what was going on. We started planning and came up with the idea to make a mock voucher saying he won a helicopter tour with Rockies Heli for Two. Part of the tour was to included one photo as part of their tour. When Darren and Adele arrived at the Banff Heli Pad, we just made it sound like I was there working for Rockies Heli documenting some new material for their next brochure, as well as being there to snap a picture of them while we were on the mountain top with nice views. We even managed to get a makeup artist (Jenna Anderson) on the flight pretending that she was my assistant. The idea was to do their engagement session on top of the mountain right after he proposed. Adele had no idea that any of this was going to take place and that Darren was going to propose to her! It was a success. Check it out:
