Early December isn’t always a guarantee that you’ll have winter as Stephanie & Neil discovered for their Banff Springs intimate wedding. We were right between seasons which gives a unique landscape in the mountains. We were lucky to find Cascade Ponds frozen but not covered in snow, so it created a huge sheet of ice that was so clear that you could see all the way through to the bottom and could see the deep green of the pond below… so of course I wanted to go take photon top of that! I’m lucky Stephanie & Neil were game for standing on the ice (and don’t worry, I watched people ice skating on the spot the day before so I knew it was safe!). Wanting that icy background made me shoot from a perspective that I don’t normally do but I loved the result! The are around Cascade Ponds is one of my favourite places to shoot in Banff, and even though you can’t see the mountains when you head to the frees, I still adore the woodland feel in the forest close by, especially when the sunlight filters through just right. After Cascade Ponds we took a stop at Surprise Corner, it just makes sense that when you have a Banff Springs Intimate wedding, you want to show the hotel in the background and the best way to do that is from a distance. We also took a short stop at Bow Falls for a few more photos before heading to their Banff Springs intimate wedding ceremony in the Angus Room (yes, the photos are in a different order… we actually did portraits before the ceremony!). Following the ceremony, was time for a few more photos with friends & family & we finished up with a couple shots using the Christmas lights in the hallway above Mount Stephen Hall! Here’s some of my favourite photos from Stephanie & Neil’s Banff Springs intimate wedding!
