This winter I had the pleasure of photographing two families that each spanned three generations.  Jasper is a great spot for families to gather in the mountains and it attracts all types.  The first family shown below were staying in the Outlook Cabin and were celebrating John’s 90th birthday.  They wanted some formal photographs of their beautiful family to remember the occasion.

This brave family got an early start on a freezing cold morning in Jasper to get some photographs of all of them together.  Nicole (shown in the vertical photo with her dog Zoey) spearheaded the idea, as it’s not too often that this family all get together.  They have travelled to Jasper numerous times in the past, but now Jocelyn, Nick, and baby Ruth live all the way over in Africa.  For them, the temperature switch from Africa to Jasper was somewhere around a scary 50 degrees celsius.  Nicole + Jason had just recently been married in Mexico, so it was quite a switch for them as well.  I had a great time hanging out with this family (despite the cold), and it was such a great idea for them to get some family photos done on their holiday together.

Ashley + Mike are another local Jasper couple, and they were married on a beautiful autumn day at the Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge.  Somehow I had never met either of them up until a couple of weeks prior to the wedding, despite us having a number of friends and acquaintances in common.  These two were completely laid back and a tonne of fun.  I don’t think Ashley stopped smiling for a single second all day.

I had never photographed a ceremony in the Great Hall at JPL before, but with the afternoon sun streaming in the wall of south facing windows there was an ethereal glow about the place that matched the mood of couple and guests alike. Following the ceremony, Ashley and Mike had a relaxing dinner tucked away in the Moose’s Nook, and invited many more friends from town out for dancing later in the evening.

It was a great opportunity for me to be a part of their wedding, and I look forward to getting to know this pair better in the future.  These two have found their niche in Jasper, and with a baby on the way the excitement for them is only beginning.

Chris and Tyler were married at the Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge last fall.  Theirs was a formal affair, and they had a very touching and intimate ceremony at Trefoil Lake.  One of my favourite parts of the wedding was when the two of them exchanged vows that they had written in Haiku.  Only their close family and friends were at the ceremony, although they invited a number more friends to the reception in the Golf Clubhouse.  Regine at JPL did her usual awesome job of making sure that everything ran smoothly throughout the day, so the couple was free to simply enjoy themselves.  Chris’ brother was the Master of Ceremonies, and successfully kept everyone smiling and laughing throughout the night.  I wish these two the best of luck in their future together, it was a pleasure to be a part of their day.

Kristen + Kyle came down from Grande Prairie to elope in Jasper with their two best friends.  Beryl performed a brief ceremony on Pyramid Island, and we managed to take a few photographs nearby before the rain blew in.  To accommodate the needs of couples like Kristen + Kyle, I’ve designed a Bridal Session package available for midweek/offseason weddings that are only looking for up to two hours of photography.

On a blustery autumn day in September, Alyssa and Adam were married on Whistler’s Plateau at the Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge.  I think it was quite easily the windiest day I have ever photographed on the Plateau, as the gusts blew east over Beauvert Lake towards Signal mountain.  I hadn’t had the opportunity to meet Alyssa and Adam prior to the wedding day, and I was warmly welcomed by beautiful smiles and bright yellow dresses in the main lobby of JPL.  From the moment Adam and his gentlemen arrived, the connection between him and Alyssa was obvious.  There was a certainty in their eyes and a confidence in their smiles that told endless tales of their connection.  Adam’s brother and best man kept the wedding party laughing and in good spirits as I forced the poor ladies to hike around the Outlook Point in their high heels.  I feel very fortunate to have spent those few short hours with these two and their friends, it was an honour to capture a part of their story.
