Lake Louise Elopement at the Post Hotel

One Edition Wed Portraits Herbert Lake

One Edition Photography photographs all types of weddings but especially love elopements. Meg writes,

There’s something about the stripped-down purity of an elopement that just really hones in on a couple, their love, and their story.  Elopements just stir deep within us that happy-nerves excitement that you get when you just know you’re living a huge honour by witnessing something truly magical, beautiful, and awesome.

And so, what an incredible privilege it was to bear witness to such a sweet, intimate, and meaningful celebration of Sarah & Will in June at the Post Hotel & Spa in Lake Louise.

Meet the Amazing Bergreen Photography | Sierra Nevada Wedding Photographers

Behinds the Scenes with Marc and Brenda from Bergreen Photography

When I first met Marc and Brenda from Bergreen Photography, I knew they were absolute mountain people. They’re laid-back, thoughtful and LOVE adventurous brides. In fact, they live adventure. In between photographing and editing weddings, they go rock climbing, whitewater kayaking, and skiing. They also recently climb Mount Whitney (the tallest peak in the contiguous United States). I LOVE following all of their adventures on Facebook.

Bergreen Photography | love. adventurously.

Welcome Marc and Brenda!

MSB: Tell us a bit about yourself
We are husband and wife, adventure partners, and business partners. We love to climb, hike, ski, and play together in the mountains. Brenda grew up in Colorado and Marc grew up in California. We met at Cal Poly in San Luis Obispo while studying engineering and working as trip leaders at the outdoor adventure program. After college we moved to Seattle to play in the Cascades. Now we are back in CA pursuing our passion for a flexible lifestyle and a successful photography business. We live at the base of the Sierras with our dog Riley and embrace the work hard play hard mentality. Between weddings and outdoor adventures, we stay busy!

MSB: Does your business have a tagline?
love. adventurously.

MSB: What’s your favorite quote?
We love to read and we love to be inspired. Therefore we have many favorite quotes. A lot of them are from John Muir and when it comes down to it they express one familiar feeling: “The mountains are calling and I must go.”

MSB: What’s your favorite thing to do in the mountains?
Climb. Just being in the mountains is often enough. Sitting, breathing, watching sunrises and sunsets. Climbing however is both challenging and freeing. It’s a path to great heights, inconceivable views, and personal growth. Also, it’s an activity we love to do together. We’ve been climbing partners for a long time and it has most certainly strengthened our bond.Continue Reading

From Shane Godfrey:

In the winter of 2010 I shot a wedding out in the Berkshires at Gedney farms. Ever since then, I had always wanted to go back during the warmer months to really see what this venue had to offer. Anne and Whitney found my work online and once we met up, we both instantly knew we would be a good fit for their wedding last May. Their Gedney Farm Wedding had a beautiful ceremony in the fields at the farm above the on-site barn. We then walked around the grounds for a bit and took some amazing photographs in front of a few of the barns as well as in front of the on-site orange old school Chevy truck, which made for an amazing picture. Anne’s mother did all the flowers for the wedding and Gedney farms was the caterer for the event, it was a very DIY style wedding. During the reception there was a sing along with both of their families getting on the mic towards the end of the night, which was a lot of fun, followed by some crazy dancing! It’s been a little over a year now, but this wedding still sticks out in my memory as one of the most fun and beautiful weddings I’ve ever photographed.

Picture this: A circus-inspired wedding, with a real camel, tons of handmade details, and a gorgeous outdoor mountains ceremony. Sounds amazing, right? It is. Now picture that wedding set in a snowy winter wonderland. Now it’s extraordinary! I know wedding bloggers tend to throw the words “stunning” around a bit too much, but this wedding, captured by Andy Barnhart,  is truly is stunning. The romantic circus colors pop against the snowy whites, offering a cheery reprieve from winter’s monochromatic palette. You’re going to love every lovely detail!
