Canadian RockiesAlberta, CanadaBanff National Park / Jasper National Park

If you’ve never been to the Canadian Rockies… please, put it on your list of places to go. You will not regret it.

This trip was in September and the weather was absolutely perfect.

A few details about this trip and the locations of the images:

Emerald Lake : Went at sunset. Peaceful, quiet, and a good get away from the touristy areas of Banff.
Moraine Lake : Viewed at sunrise. Completely worth waking up and enduring the cold.
Athabasca Glacier : Climb it. The tour guide was great and informative and shared his own unbiased viewpoints about the receding glacier.
Athabasca Falls : There was a really nice trail alongside it and it went pretty far. Turned back around because someone alerted us of a bear down the trail.
Pyramid Lake : As a wedding photographer, I found this location to be the best – secluded and not a well known tourist attraction.
Maligne Lake / Spirit Island : Just do it. It’s iconic. 1/4 million dollar bathroom (it’s just a regular bathroom).
Peyto Lake : Didn’t stay for too long and was really crowded. Luckily, I got a photo without any photobombers.
Lake Agnes Tea House : An hour or so hike from Lake Louise – reached it around sunset.
Lake Louise : Iconic and provides a nice reflection. I’m not a huge fan of the hotel that is adjacent to it – it feels too much like an amusement park.

Hope you can go!
