It was a magical winter day at Kicking Horse Mountain Resort. A bit of snow still frosting the trees around the chalets in Purcell Woods where Katie and Myles were getting prepped for their big day. They decided to have their reveal before they went up the gondola and I chose a spot in the woods behind one of the chalets. A very peaceful moment together before they were swept away in the excitement of their day. With the early sunsets in January it is best to capture fun and formal portraits before the ceremony. The patio at the Eagle Eye Restaurant did not disappoint with clear skies and amazing views. The Guests were in awe as they enjoyed their hot drinks and watched the fading sun disappear behind the Purcell Mountains. A very personal ceremony with readings from close friends. The sky above the Columbia valley turned a beautiful fuchsia and hinted at the cold air that would follow and with that everyone followed the very thrilled newly weds in for dinner. The Staff at the Eagle Eye Restaurant did an amazing job, the 4 course dinner left everyone satisfied and ready for the dance floor. I kept an eye on the night sky as the moon rose for the perfect moment to capture the beautiful couple under the night sky. Well worth the cold toes. Katie and Myles thank you for ‘Making Weddings Great Again’.
What katie & Myles had to say…
We had the pleasure of working with Amy for our winter wedding. We planned our wedding mainly by correspondence and due to our busy schedules never had the chance to take Amy up on her offer to get some engagement photos done before the big day. So we met her the day of our wedding and it was wonderful. She exceeded our expectations and took a great variety of photos. Our schedule, like so many weddings, got behind compared to our original plan but she was so patient as she waited for me to finish getting ready and took so many wonderful pictures of the details that I am grateful to have to relive the day.
Our photos are stunning and we get so many compliments on them. Amy did a great job of not only capturing us on our day but also our families, bridal party and candid shots of our guests. It was special to see moments that happened around us that we didn’t have the chance experience for ourselves. She also does an incredible job of capturing the scenery. Part of the reason we chose Eagle Eye Restaurant was for the magical backdrop and Amy really went above and beyond to help us preserve the view in our photos. We have pictures from all times of the day including late into the evening when the stars were out and most photographers have gone home. This extra effort and key eye for the mountains and the sky are exactly why we’d recommend Amy to you. We had a hard time deciding which photos to enlarge on canvas in our home because so many were breathtaking and the quality even enlarged held the integrity of the original photo down to the smallest of star. Amy and her work are worth it.
