Emily and Jasper decided they wanted their wedding to be an adventure. It turned into a Banff destination wedding.
We met Emily and Jasper at one of my pre-NAPfS “Camera and Coffee” events a few years back. It didn’t take long for her (and Jasper) to slot into #TeamBlue and start shooting with us. Pretty early on, she mentioned that they were getting married in a couple years and asked:
Would you be willing to go to Denali and do the wedding in the back country?
Uhm, YES! It turns out that Emily and Jasper are exactly our type of crazy.
Fast forward to 2017. Plans changed and we ended up in Banff National Park in Canada instead. Getting to their wedding was a pretty epic road trip including a stop over in the Teton’s for the total solar eclipse and a Bonnie and Clyde “day before” shoot. That story will have to wait for another blog post though.
Banff was unbelievable beautiful. It’s hard to relate just how spectacular a backdrop the mountains are.
Emily and Jasper are both professional photographers. They gave me free reign to set the schedule around the light. We actually did the couples portraits starting at about 6AM (4:30AM call time – yes, they and the wedding party are hard core) with the ceremony afterwards mid morning.
This was a minimalist wedding all about the couple and location. Emily made the small number of DIY details they had and they fit the location perfectly.

After we finished up the sunrise portraits, Emily and Jasper got officially hitched by their friend Greg.

Because of COURSE I was going to make more pictures of Emily and Jasper while I had mountains and such an adventurous couple.
