#HartwellorHighwater | Epic Banff Wedding Photography!
Oh man, I have waited a while to share this wedding with you all and frick!!! I am so pumped to finally show you all!!!
Mark and Sarah found me online by googling “epic banff wedding photographer” and wrote me this message in their contact form:
“We love your shit. And you sound awesome.”
I knew we were gonna get along just fine. Fast forward to their wedding day at the Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel. This was a wedding that for a week we didn’t even know would happen. Sarah and Mark’s home is in Houston, Texas and the week before their wedding was when Hurricane Harvey hit the city. Sarah’s dress was in a box that was floating in water and they had a friend with a truck who had to come get them from the home. Watching the news coverage on this disaster really hit me hard because I knew these two were in the thick of it. Global national news even showed up on their wedding day to hear about their story and the camera man even had tears when interviewing them. Needless to say there was not much that was gonna stop the #HartwellorHighwater wedding from happening!
Amy from Lynn Fletcher Weddings did an outstanding job with all the decor and making the room look incredible. She happens to be a breeze to work with as well, thank you Amy!! <3
Now make sure you scroll down all the way in this blog because you’ll get to see what happens when you mix an incredible DJ from Pez Productions and a bunch of crazy Albertan and Texans in one room for a dance party. EPICNESS! At one point Josue turned all the lights off and turned the entire room into a rave blasting sandstorm on the speakers. Seriously, one of the best dance parties I have ever been part of.
Thank you so much for hiring me Sarah and Mark! It was such a rad day!! I want more Texas weddings now haha!!

Amazing service girls!!
