When clients say they’re going to elope I get extra excited to photograph their wedding.
Since Bruno and I eloped, I’m especially fond of these simple, intimate weddings – just two people making vows to each other.
Nick and Carrie had been planning to elope for a while, and had even told family and friends.. but they said they were getting married this fall. So their trip to Cathedral Mountain Lodge in Yoho National Park, British Columbia, was top secret. AND THEN they kept the news to themselves for a whole month after that, until they were together with their families for the big reveal. Holy moly.
The rain stopped, Carrie and Nick said their vows beside the Kicking Horse River, and the sun came out.
They chose the Natural Bridge location for photos – if you’ve never been, you have to check it out, it’s incredible.
It’s always an honour to document two people’s commitment to one another, but especially so knowing that they are trusting you to capture the images they will use to share the day with their loved ones.
