Snow in September is not unusual in the Canadian Rockies, but a few days before Jill + Tyler’s Canmore wedding we got a whole, awful lot of it. With nearly two feet of snow on the ground two days before the wedding, it was a huge relief for everyone when the day dawned bright and sunny, and the green grass showed it’s face again under snow capped peaks. Not only did the day begin beautifully, but it was perfect in it’s entirety. There was so much emotion and sincerity between these two and their families, and it was evident in every aspect. There were also some incredible friendships, and those resulted in far more than a few friendly insults, jokes and laughter.
Jill and Tyler chose not to do engagement photographs, but we did get a chance to spend an afternoon together well before the wedding. Jill is incredibly organized, and so it was so good for all of us to be able to drive around Canmore so that I could show them the locations I had in mind for their wedding photographs. This was a great opportunity for collaboration, and we were able to choose the best spots to suit their vision. I had a vision in mind as well, but it wasn’t nearly as beautiful as the real thing. Have a look for yourself!
