Caroline & Jordan by Kim

CAROLINE & JORDAN, Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel, Feb. 15th, 2013

Kim Payant shot a wonderful winter wedding recently for our clients Caroline & Jordan. Here’s Kim story of the day:

Caroline and Jordan decided to have only their closest family and friends attend their intimate wedding at the Fairmon Banff Springs Hotel. The pastor, a friend of the family, did an amazing job and the ceremony was truly touching and you could really feel the love during the celebration. After the vows, Caroline, Jordan and I went for a drive around town to capture the beauty of the Rockies.  I just loved everything about Caroline’s dress, it fitted her perfectly and her winter cape with the fur was the perfect accessory for their amazing winter wedding!

Paul & Dione…..love on an elevator

Our recent wedding clients Diane & Paul were so great to work with. They rode a few elevators & climbed many stairs to get some dramatic portraits on top of the famous Banff Springs Hotel. It was a spectacular evening and our timing was perfect as we managed to have some perfect alpen glow to finish off their portrait session. A great party followed in Cascade Ballroom, with music and atmosphere provided by Patrick Smiley of Class Act DJ Service, a very popular photobooth by John Thiessen of Banff Photobooth. Kudos also to Leanne of Leaneoftebroweddings.com for great wedding planning and design and thanks as  always to Kathy R and her team at the Fairmont who make our job very easy with all their support!

To start off, here’s a fun little gif animation to demonstrate Paul & Dione’s fun spirit.

LORI & CHRIS, January 2nd, 2013

A few years ago we had the pleasure of photographing the wedding of Lori & Chris here in Banff. They recently returned for a visit and stopped by to have a few portraits as they eagerly anticipate the arrival of their first child. These guys are so fun and so in love! I can’t wait to meet the little guy when he arrives!

Vanessa & Jonathan

VANESSA & JONATHAN, December 30th, 2012, Rundle United Church & Fairmont Banff Springs

Banff was a winter wonderland once again as Kim and I documented the wedding of Vanessa & Jonathan. A “little” wind chill ;-) didn’t prevent our wedding party from having a great time as we made portraits by the frozen Bow River. Thanks to Highland Executive Chauffeur for keeping the whole gang warm and happy!

Colleen & Cayle

COLLEEN & CAYLE, December 29th, 2012, Buffalo Mountain Lodge

A beautiful late December evening in Banff, a wedding party dressed for the occasion and huge smiles all around made my job easy as Kim and I joined Colleen and Cayle for their wedding on Dec. 29th. The happy couple braved quite a chill after sunset to make one last portrait under starry skies.

Judith & Aaron

JUDITH & AARON, December 24th, 2012, Douglas Fir Resort & Fairmont Banff Springs

Judith & Aaron and their children traveled from Australia to celebrate their wedding here in Banff on Christmas Eve. I’m sure -15 C was a new experience for all, but as we often say, they had their love to keep them warm ;-)
