Thankfully that crazy cold snap is behind us now, but last week when I woke up on the day of Emily & James’ engagement session to -25ºC, I was a little concerned! We planned our session for the afternoon, and by the time I met up with them, it was downright balmy outside (comparatively speaking anyway!). Emily is from way south of the border, and I think last week was her first experience with true Canadian cold.

We started out in Mt. Stephen hall in the Banff Springs Hotel.


I haven’t had a chance to explore the hotel much, so before their session I walked around a little, and learned two things; that place is a maze, and there are lots of little rooms and hallways that are great for pictures!









I mentioned earlier in the post that Emily is from the warm south. Turns out she’s never done a snow angel, so by request, to finish their session off they did one. I love the first picture of this set – her eyes seem to say “You want me to lay down in the snow? Really?!”
