The Burghardt’s Engagement Session at Moraine Lake in Banff National Park
Along the Shores of Moraine Lake in the Heart of the Rocky Mountains
The day started at Taryn and Adam’s home in Royal Oak, where the talented Christina Kemp with Modern Makeovers was busy with Taryn’s hair and makeup.
The Engagement Session at Moraine Lake
We left in the late afternoon and drove out to the famous Moraine Lake. The crystal clear lake lies nestled in the Valley of the Ten Peaks, an impressive range of mountains near Lake Louise. It is touted as one of Banff’s must-see destinations and is one of the most photographed locations in Canada.
Even though it is such a popular spot to visit, the lake was busier than we had expected. There were even cars parked along the side of the road! Thankfully there are many quiet and photogenic spots along the Moraine trail, giving us plenty of locations to set the shoot.
Because the mountain range surrounding Moraine Lake is so tall, by 6:30 the sun was already starting to disappear behind it. We took advantage of the lighting and shot Taryn and Adam at a lookout point in front of the range. We spent the majority of the shoot at this lookout, the majestic Ten Peaks and glacier-blue Moraine Lake as our backdrop. The last rays of sun peeked out from behind the 10000-foot mountains, and the streaming sunbeams created cinematic flares of light.
Taryn’s Engagement Ring
After we finished up at the lookout we headed up to the rock pile, where Taryn and Adam changed into their formal wear. While the couple changed outfits we photographed Taryn’s beautiful solitaire engagement ring upon the rocks. The incredible textures of the jagged Canadian Rockies provided us with another jaw dropping backdrop.
We then headed back down the trail to the vehicles, snapping some final shots along the way. Taryn and Adam are an easygoing couple, and this really made the whole session relaxed and a lot of fun!
