Adventurous sunrise session in Kananaskis

Mountaintop hiking adventure session | Banff adventure elopement photographer

Vincent & Helena both love being outdoors and taking in the beauty of the Rocky Mountains. They love hiking, so for their adventure session last summer, we decided to take photos on a mountain top during golden hour.

This trail in Kananaskis Country, Alberta, takes you to a ridge with an impressive view over two serene, blue lakes. The contrast of the rough mountains and the beautiful wildflowers is incredible to witness. We thought this would be the perfect setting for a sunrise session, and we were right.

We picked out a red dress for Helena, took out our hiking boots, and started this adventure couple session. But when we reached to top we noticed we were not alone. A grizzly bear seemed to be climbing the rocks in peace. Luckily some friends came along for the hike and because we were with such a big group of people, the bear took off when he saw us and we had this gorgeous morning light all to ourselves. Getting up early was so worth it. The clouds lit up pink and made for the most magical mountaintop views. Their boots were dirty and their hair messy, but none of that mattered to them. They danced the morning away and enjoyed the beauty that Canada has to offer.
More adventurous couples for me, please!

The result is yours to witness in these photos. Enjoy!
