Kelsey & Blaine – Summer wedding in the Kananaskis Valley, Alberta

Kananaskis is my not-so-top secret little place south west of Calgary, where I have spent countless hours in my life. I am fortunate to have a small cabin in the woods, still with no running water in the winter and no cell service any time of year in this beautiful and picturesque valley. When Kelsey first contacted me about shooting her and Blaine’s wedding this past summer I couldn’t have been happier. We even headed out there last fall to do an engagement session including one spot that later was used in the movie The Revenant – yep, it’s a pretty special spot. Fast forward to their wedding day and as the girls were getting ready the planner was quizzing Kelsey about having the ceremony indoors or out with the storm clouds moving through the mountains. She stuck to her plan to have it outdoors, and it worked out perfectly. Just as they were saying their I do’s, the clouds parted and a warm beam of sun painted the side of the mountain. We had it for some of the family photos, then as we headed off to do the bridal party shots the clouds threatened again, but allowed just enough time to get out and get a bunch of shots with this fun group. The reception was full of laughs, a few tears, and some unreal dance moves!
