We can’t think of many places more epic than the crystal clear lake in Banff, so we knew we were in for a treat when Karra Leigh Photography shared this styled elopement with us! This Lake Louise elopement shoot features a real engaged couple, handwritten vows by Pink + Peach, and breathtaking florals from Always Sunny. This gorgeous shoot started with lakeside vows and ended up with a fun spin in the couple’s RV. We think the bride’s off-the-shoulder Sarah Seven gown is the perfect combo of trendy and timelessly romantic!
From the bride: We met in high school and neither of us wanted to admit at first, but we were completely in love. Seven years later we’ve had a whole lot of adventures, made so many memories, and have a whole ton of excitement for the future! I worked in the Netherlands last summer, and Kev and I made a plan to drive to the coast for two weeks when I returned. He proposed at Crater Lake, Oregon. There were a lot of forest fires in the area then and it was really hazy and pink so no one was there and we got to witness it alone!
From the bride: I was teasing him about proposing, little did I know he had bought one and hid it in a sock at the bottom of his backpack! I don’t really remember anything other than him getting on one knee and how much his hands were shaking, but I so remember being filled with so much happiness and that feeling hasn’t gone away! I’m so excited for our future. He’s my best friend and my adventure partner and I couldn’t ask for anyone better to do life with!
From the photographer: This Lake Louise elopement was inspired by nature; the surrounding mountains, the water, the mood. I was truly hoping for a moody rainy day because I wanted brides to feel something when they looked at these photos and to find beauty in a relaxed unplanned setting. Elopements are one-of-a-kind, organic, and the details and personal touches make for a truly beautiful day. I love being able to capture madly in love couples who are adventures at heart.
