The best part of my career is that every day is different. Some days that means being chained to my computer, and others it means heading out to Canmore with my couple to go rock climbing with them!
When I first met with Julie & John about their 2016 wedding, we ended up chatting for quite a while and it was fabulous. We hatched a plan to incorporate their love of climbing and the mountains into their engagement photos! In my younger years I did a lot of rock and ice climbing, and was completely game for an adventure!
Watching these two together was incredible. Julie is visually-impaired, but that doesn’t seem to stop her from anything. She an John make an amazing team…I mean she’s rock climbing…their partnership is utterly inspiring.
I’d like to thank them both for a great experience on this shoot … it was my first climb in 10 years, and a wonderful way to spend a couple of days in one of my favourite places.
We split the shoot into two days, the first hiking below Grassi Lakes, and then the next morning climbing at the ‘Golf Course’ above the lakes.
Just for fun…a couple of behind the scenes shots! I don’t mind getting down and dirty for the shots! Luckily I kept my rock shoes all these years just in case…
