Canadian Great Lakes Couples Shoot – Maria & Nick
As a destination wedding photographer, capturing the beauty of love in the great outdoors is always an incredible experience. Recently, I had the opportunity to photograph Maria and Nick, a lovely couple, amidst the stunning Canadian Rockies. The great lakes region of Canada offers some of the most breathtaking backdrops for couples’ photoshoots. We made use of a few locations that showcased the natural beauty of the area.
Canadian Great Lakes Couples Shoot Locations
First, we headed to a lake in front of the Three Sisters mountains, which are a trio of peaks in the Canadian Rockies. Our aim was to use the Three Sisters as the backdrop for the photoshoot, however, the weather had other plans, and the clouds covered the mountains when we arrived.
Instead, we decided to focus on a nearby forest and field. We captured some amazing photos of Maria and Nick amidst the natural surroundings. But, just when we thought the weather wouldn’t clear up, the clouds opened up to reveal the stunning vista of the Three Sisters. We quickly got Maria and Nick to run through the grassy fields again, and we were able to capture some incredible shots with the mountains in the background.
Next, we headed to the Canmore Grand Rockies Hotel for lunch. The hotel is an architectural masterpiece nestled in the heart of the Canadian Rockies. We couldn’t resist having Maria put on her wedding dress for a few photos in front of an intricately designed floral arrangement. The hotel’s elegant ambiance and stunning architecture provided a perfect backdrop for the photoshoot. Maria and Nick looked breathtaking, and we were able to capture some beautiful moments.
Our final destination was the picturesque Lake Louise, known for its turquoise blue waters and stunning views. As we were taking photos, it was not uncommon for passersby to ask if we were photographing someone famous, as Maria and Nick certainly looked the part. The highlight of the day was when Nick burst open a bottle of champagne in front of the incredible Lake Louise vista. It was the perfect way to end the day and celebrate their love.
The Three Sisters mountains are a majestic sight to behold. Maria and Nick’s photoshoot in front of the Three Sisters was nothing short of incredible. The weather added an element of surprise to the photoshoot, just as is was with Sydney and Dan’s photoshoot, the clouds covered the mountains when we arrived.
However, we were able to capture some stunning photos of the couple amidst the natural surroundings of the forest and field nearby. When the clouds finally cleared, we were able to get some amazing shots with the Three Sisters in the background. The Three Sisters provided a breathtaking backdrop for the photoshoot, and the photos turned out stunning.

We started by walking around the lake and taking some photos on the lakeshore, where the water was so clear that you could see the rocks at the bottom. Maria and Nick were naturals in front of the camera, and their love for each other was palpable. The light was perfect, and the couple looked absolutely radiant. I took a few photos from different angles, and Nick surprised us all by bursting open a bottle of champagne. It was a magical moment, and I captured it all on camera.
As we wrapped up the shoot, we all stood in awe of the natural beauty that surrounded us.
Looking back on the photoshoots, I’m so grateful for the opportunity to have worked with such a wonderful couple in such breathtaking locations. The Three Sisters, Canmore Grand Rockies Hotel, and Lake Louise provided the perfect backdrop for Maria and Nick’s Canadian Great Lakes Couples Shoot, and I’m thrilled to have been able to capture it all on camera. I hope these photos will serve as a lasting reminder of their love and the incredible scenery that they were able to experience together.
