Hey there! I'm Emerald Lake Wedding Photographer Beth van der Bij & I specialize in creating beautiful, authentic images that capture the emotions, movement & intimacy found in real, lasting love. I adore natural light, organic locations & fresh air. Emerald Lake is an amazing location for your intimate wedding or elopement in the Canadian Rocky Mountains!


Emerald Lake Weddings & Elopements


Emerald Lake is open year round & is a fabulous location to consider in any season. Winters are very snowy but fairly easy to navigate as the paths are kept fairly clear & you can walk out onto the frozen lake. It's far less busy in winter than the rest of year & it's glorious! Autumn at Lake Louise is beautiful & you can catch early snowfall & still get that beautiful blue-green water. Late Spring & Summer are picture perfect, but a lot busier with the busloads of tourists. After your ceremony, stroll around the Lake for photos or head out to the Natural Bridge or Takakkaw Falls for photos on the Kickinghorse River! I'd love to create carefree, adventurous & joyful wedding photos for you in the spectacular Canadian Rockies at Emerald Lake!

Have a taste of adventure for your wedding photos at Emerald Lake.

If you've been dreaming of an intimate mountain wedding with those unreal blue waters, a rocky landscape & lush green woodland areas, Emerald is probably the place that pops to mind. It's Insta famous & beloved on Pinterest... for good reason. It is spectacular. It's also a place that gets beautiful water & mountain views that doesn't require you being too adventurous. It's an easy stroll around the lake to get the views. Emerald Lake is perfect for larger rustic weddings at Emerald Lake Lodge or smaller, intimate elopements too. I'm more than happy help you plan out the details for your perfect Emerald Lake wedding or elopement! I'm even happier to photograph it all!
