There is definitely a reason why people travel from all over the world to visit the Canadian Rockies. The jagged + gigantic peaks, covered in lush trees. More lakes than you can count, and each one more blue than the one before. It’s like something out of a movie, which makes sense…because a ton of stuff gets filmed in Canada!

When Jo first reached out about doing an adventure session with Alex, they were planning to be in Darwin, Australia. She explained he wasn’t suuuuuuper keen on photos, but was willing to go along with it. Fast forward a few months + changed plans — the shoot was moved to Lake Minnewanka in Banff, Canada. Seems simple, right?

Well THEN I got an email from Alex, who told me actually he was going along with photos because he was planning to put a RING ON IT! He was playing nonchalant in the hopes of surprising his girl! He picked a song and we made the plans, and I think it couldn’t have gone better! Here’s to my continent-hopping pals, Jo + Alex — I’m already counting down till the wedding! x
