As an Edmonton fashion and portrait photographer always shooting in the city, I loved my first getaway to Jasper National Park. It was like a breath of fresh air. My friends Megan, Barbara and me hit the road in the middle of the week in late August (perfect to avoid too many tourists) for a well deserved mini vacation in the forest. It was my first time at Jasper National Park and I was flabbergasted. I have seen so many images of this place on social media, I had great expectations. But I was not disappointed and I was even more stunned by the beauty of the landscapes. I was also able to see some wildlife, so it was just amazing.
Barb, Megan and I decided to take some pictures on top of the mountain, after a very interesting trip in the Jasper Skytram. We had a lot of fun and the light was gorgeous up there. We did not actually do the trail because we were tired and wanted to enjoy a nice dinner in the town of Jasper and also catching up on our lives.
The next day, Barb had an engagement session so we decided to join her and take some photos in Maligne Lake. It’s a gorgeous lake like you usually see in the movies, with the stunning colours. Megan and I worked on our double exposures photos and experimented a little bit in the woods.
Then, we headed to Pyramid Lake for a few more pictures before heading back home. It was for sure a quick trip but it was good for the soul. Being in the mountains is so special. This getaway to Jasper National Park was perfect to relax in the middle of a busy summer.
Let’s see some images of our getaway!
Until next time, beautiful Jasper!
