WITH ELANA + ANTONIO
Just because its cold doesn’t mean the mountains aren’t as beautiful! Lake Louise in Banff, Alberta is one of the most popular places in the world, and is beautiful both in the summer + in the winter. And makes the perfect back drop for any occasion! Elena + Antonio decided to end off their winter tour of the Canadian Rocky Mountains at the Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise, where I met up with them for a fun-filled afternoon of walking around on the frozen lake for an intimate session!
Being able to get out on the lake, and separating ourselves from all the skaters + cross country skiers was a blessing. Also considering it was New Years Day- I made sure to scout out further out on the lake before taking Elena + Antonio out very far, because even though it is January, frozen lakes can still be unsafe! But we got lucky and were able to have this whole part of the lake to ourselves, without compromising any views!
Travelling from California, this frozen scenery was definitely something they’d never experienced before, and were amazed the whole time! And I don’t blame them! Lake Louise was just absolutely stunning, with the snow lightly falling, the trees all nice and calm, sounds only coming from the crunch out our footsteps + laughs from our jokes, and mountains all around standing as tall as ever. It looks very different from the other months, if you want to see what it looks like in different seasons- check them out here: Spring, Fall.
We decided to head into the Chateau where we could warm up. You can see how cold it looks outside, but we still couldn’t get over the winter beauty. You can also see the lake filling up with people, so we decided to get a little privacy looking out this window onto the winter activities unfolding.
I feel so honoured + grateful that Elena + Antonio chose me to help capture this part of their adventure! They wanted a memorable experience to capture the end of their already amazing trip, + I am so happy I could provide this for them! If you’re ever wondering how to make memories like this possible, I’d love to talk + give you more insight on how to make this possible for you! No matter the occasion! Click here to get in touch!
