The Dickin’s Engagement Session at Two Jack Lake in Banff National Park

A Sunny Mountain Session

These are some of the beautiful images from Stephanie and Shayne’s engagement sessions with our studio. We started our afternoon at their home where our Makeup and Hair stylist Christina Kemp with Modern Makeover’s got to work right away at making Stephanie look fabulous.

The Engagement Session at Two Jack Lake

Our day began with a drive out to Banff National Park. We took Stephanie and Shayne out to Two Jack Lake, just east of the town of Banff, and north of the Trans Canada Highway. This is an incredibly beautiful spot, and we took the photos right at the mouth of the lake beside Two Jack Lakeside Campground. We got some absolutely stunning photographs of the couple, entirely surrounded by the lake and mountains. Even though there was still ice floating on a large percentage of the lake, we managed to take some amazing reflective shots off of the blue-green water. The reflections worked so well because the sun was shining incredibly brightly for us that day. We found a bit of concrete right on the edge of the lake for Stephanie and Shayne to stand on, which gave the illusion that they could be standing on the lake itself!

We next moved into a nearby forest for some woodland pictures and shots of the rings. The sun was beginning to set, and it filtered through the spruce trees, providing unique lighting for these shots.


Stephanie’s Engagement Ring

We placed Stephanie’s engagement ring atop pinecones and spruce boughs, taking full advantage of the outdoor shoot.



After we were finished in the forest we took a drive back out to the Trans Canada Highway along the Lake Minnewanka Scenic Drive. Here we came across a spot where the road crested and Mt. Inglismaldie rose up in the background. The mountain framed the couple very nicely, and gave us a wonderful set up to end the day.

Overall, the day was wonderful and sunny, and the mountains, lakes, and forests provided us with a beautiful backdrop to shoot the Dickin Engagement Session.
