April is one of those tricky months where you never know what kind of weather you’re going to get; it could be spring, it could be winter or it could be a bit of both. This year the mountains have seen quite a bit of late season snow, so I wasn’t surprised to find the snow falling pretty intently when I met up with Melissa & Jason at the Juniper Hotel in Banff for their elopement ceremony. They got married on the terrace at the Juniper Hotel, which, on a clear day, has beautiful mountain views, however with all the snow the mountains were totally obscured but the falling snow against the dark trees does make for a pretty background. After the wedding ceremony we wandered off to Vermilion Lakes and Lake Minnewanka for a few more portraits and in search of a mountain background somehow. The winds were pretty intense on Vermilion Lakes so we didn’t last there for too long! We managed to get a hint of mountains in the background at Lake Minnewanka through all the snow for their Banff elopement photography before ending photos for the day. Melissa & Jason returned to the Juniper where they had a celebratory dinner at the bistro and I hit the road to head home, enjoying the drive in the snow. These are some of my favourite photos from Melissa & Jason’s Banff elopement!
