Carly + MattSurprise Proposal in Romantic Banff Snowfall

Matt and Carly had traveled from Chicago for a mountain vacation together with a special surprise part way through! As wedding photographer, I am most often invited to photograph a couple once the wedding plans are already in the works so it is a thrill to be a part of capturing the exciting moment that sparks a new season of life for a couple!

When you travel to Banff in the fall, locals know you plan for all kinds of weather! Even though they weren’t from the area, Carly and Matt seemed prepared! Matt, for sure, wasn’t hesitating to pack up that picnic and ensure his plan went through without a hitch. Although the view wasn’t quite the yellow leaves and golden sun you might imagine for a fall proposal, the most romantic winter snowfall surrounded them as Matt got down on one knee!! I couldn’t hear if Carly said yes (I was hidden far away in the trees so I wouldn’t spoil the surprise!) but there was a huge smile on her face, shrieks of joy, and lots of hugs and kisses!

As you scroll through and enjoy the development of this precious moment, please note that the snow in these photos is 100% real!! I swear there is not a single snowflake overlay or any Photoshop work done at all. As I said, it was the most romantic snowfall – perfect for a surprise proposal!
