Bonner kicks off 2014 in style with Chelsea & Mike!

Chelsea & Mike, Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel, Thursday, Jan. 16th, 2014

Tessa Perkins and I got the 2014 wedding season off to a wonderful start when we had the honour of documenting Chelsea & Mike’s spectacular celebration at our historic Banff Springs Hotel. Once again, we had the pleasure of working along side some great wedding professionals. Kudos to Lesley of Magical Moments, Fayyaz of Pez Productions and, as always, Kathy & her staff at the Fairmont!

Evan & Tracy

EVAN & TRACY, August 8th, 2013, Grande Rockies Resort

Often in the Rockies the best weather for dramatic wedding portraits is……..whatever we get! You really can’t go wrong when, like many other places in Canada, the best advice when worrying about the forecast is “if you don’t like the weather, wait 5 minutes”. Or 30 seconds which is often the case :-)

Evan & Tracy and their wedding party were in great spirits and barely noticed the few rain drops which led to spectacular cloud burst backdrops for their portraits.

Thanks to Tessa Perkins for her stellar assistance and second shooting!

Thomas & Shanna

THOMAS & SHANNA, August 3rd, 2013, Iron Goat Restaurant, Canmore, AB

We’ve always loved shooting weddings. They are celebrations of friendship, commitment, families and of course, love. Once in a while we attend a wedding where the energy & joy of the couple and their guests reaches a higher level. Shanna & Thomas’s wedding back in August had that type of energy with the added ingredient of humour! Tessa & I had a great time working with this crazy crew.

After a break, getting back to blogging and sharing.

Apologies for our absence here on the BanffPhotographers blog. Kim Payant & I had a very busy Summer & Fall wedding season and we have been working hard on completing production on the images from many wonderful wedding celebrations.

Starting off, a great couple, so in love, allowing me to share part of their wedding day with them and also honouring me by asking me to act as a witness to their wedding vows. The ceremony officiated by out great friend Robin White.

Aleisha & Mike

ALEISHA & MIKE, Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel, July 28th, 2013

I thoroughly enjoyed spending the day with Aleisha & Mike and their families as they celebrated their mountain wedding in style at the Fairmont Banff Springs. A bit of summer rain did little to dampen their spirits and led to some spectacular skies for their portrait session.

Kaitlin & Kevin dancing under the Moon

KAITLIN & KEVIN, Juniper Hotel, Banff, July 17th, 2013

It’s not really a job being a wedding photographer, rather it’s a privilege. We are honoured when our clients invite us to be a part of such special events in their lives.

Kaitlin & Kevin and their friends and family were so kind to both Kim and I. Their unique wedding celebration included theatrical entrances, a wonderful dinner at Juniper Lodge, smores by an outdoor fire and the newlyweds first dance outdoors on Juniper’s terrace under a mid-summer moon. K & K were assisted in pulling off the great event by the fantastic Lauren & Julie of Rocky Mountain Weddings!

August 19, 2013 - 10:28 am Sheralyn Rugman - Gorgeous pictures. When will they all be ready? I'm the Mother of the Bride, and I want to buy quite a few. How does that work John?

August 19, 2013 - 11:33 am Bonner - Hi Sheralyn, We have just put up the online gallery of all the images late last night. I will send you an email with the link and passcode to view the images. There is a secure online shopping cart included in the gallery allowing you to purchase prints. It was great meeting you and sharing in Kaitlin & Kevin's celebration. Cheers John Bonner

Megan & Dave

MEGAN & DAVE, June 16th, 2013, Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel

We had such a beautiful, warm Rocky Mountain day last Sunday for Dave & Megan’s wedding celebration.  These two are so much in love and the joy of the day was readily apparent. Kim and I really enjoyed spending the day with the happy couple and their friends and family as they danced into the night in the iconic Banff Springs Hotel.

Another Bow Valley Wedding Season underway !

BRIAN & JANET, June 15th, 2013, St. Mary’s Church & Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel

It’s great to be back at home in Banff documenting the mountain weddings of our wonderful clients. Brian & Janet & their family & friends were such great subjects, willingly climbing on rocks and tippy docks to get some great photos on a beautiful day. Thanks as always to Tessa Perkins for her stunning second camera work!
