Where do I go from here...
Banff is a small resort town in the province of Alberta, located within Banff National Park. It boasts gorgeous views of the Canadian Rockies and Lake Louise. This is a destination that is perfect for your adventure no matter what season. Can you imagine sitting in the middle of the lake in a canoe or hiking to one of the numerous lookouts just to catch a bird's eye view of the landscape? Stunning! #travel #adventure #banff #banffnationalpark #banffcanada #travelbycraig #canadianrockies #landscapes
Ice, Ice, Baby!

"She is water,
Powerful enough to drown you,
Soft enough to cleanse you ,
Deep enough to save you." - Adrian Michael *****************************************
It is befitting to say that if there is magic on planet earth then it is in water and I believe I stand in accordance with the above metaphors said for water. This picture was taken at the much acclaimed Lake Louise in Banff, Alberta. Banff is very picturesque no matter what place or site you visit but Lake Louise is absolutely the Jewel of Alberta and a MUST visit. 👌👌✌️
I have such incredible memories from my visit to Alberta but Lake Louise rings special cords like none other. 🎵🎶
I vividly remember that as soon as we reached Lake Louise , I brisk walked to the spot convenient for taking pictures and I hurriedly pulled out my Samsung Tablet to click the pictures as my camera had no charge remaining. The bunch of photography enthusiasts were rushing to the spot and I didn't want to miss out on the "Me time " with this resplendent Lake. I believe that greed must have played hard on my mind and I dropped my Tablet in the Lake beyond any hopes of evacuation. I was heartbroken to have lost my beloved gadget but with such a tranquil, intensely enchanting hued Lake right before my eyes, I was able to calmly say Goodbye to it. The alleviation I felt standing right there convinced me that it was ok to let go because the gadget will come again but this moment may not so it's imperative to live for the moment and not mourn for the equipment. ➰✔️♥️
Nature teaches us unequivocal love towards one and all, materialism doesn't swing too well with this beautiful composition we call Mother Nature. 💝
The symphony of hues, majestic mountains and the dauntless blazing sun made it so bright a set up that it was a huge effort for me to open my eyes and pose before the camera but I am glad I stretched as today this picture is reminiscent of the Lake Louise's grandeur. For the records, this picture was clicked on my IPhone later. 🌟🌊 *****************************************

I just think this video is wicked ;) thanks J 💜
Meditation can be cold wind on your face, & sunshine filling the sky with light. It’s easy for me to self reflect, be in the moment while I’m surrounded by nature. 💜
Both the ice, sky & majestic Mountains stretched on all around me, I felt powerful– as I skated against the blowing gusts of wind, my legs bore down to glide against the turbulent breeze. It took some time, but I made it down & back the icy glass sheet one glide at a time. 💜
Being in nature is my church
Nature is my home
I feel the most comfortable & at peace in nature
I feel my freedom in my soul when I’m in nature -
Until next time my beautiful Rockies...... 💕
The Canadian Pacific Holiday Train rolled into Banff tonight for a free performance. It travels the width of Canada bringing smiles to many faces. #canadianpacificholidaytrain #banff
sometimes, I still pinch myself remembering Courtney & Kevin’s spring intimate wedding in my favorite place 1.5 years later. I’m still drooling & still so honored by the recognition these sweet photos received for a truly remarkable couple. this wedding opened a lot of doors for my career and marked the first time I shot a real wedding in Stanley after dreaming about working in the Sawtooths since I was 19. to give you an idea, it took 6 years to make that dream a reality. social media is a funny thing and warps the perception of success based on numbers of followers & “epic” location tags, but I like to remind myself and others that you don’t have to do everything at once. not all dreams and goals should be achieved immediately. I’m all about taking risks and leaps, but I firmly believe there’s a reason certain opportunities land in your lap when you’re patient and work your butt of for them so you’re ready to tackle it. I think part of the magic of this day was that it happened so organically and Courtney and I both shared a near identical vision for her day. it was the combination of the right couple, right day, right location, right everything. there are dreams worth waiting for. what a day, what a memory, what a rockstar couple 💕

Visiting Banff during the off-season was so peaceful. I was basically in awe the entire time (and freezing!). There were no crowds and we had trails and restaurants mostly to ourselves. Sure, there were a couple of downsides (shorter days, road and trail closures) but it was an amazing experience and I can’t wait to go back again.
I prefer the white toothpaste over the blue gel-like stuff. pls let me know your fave in the comments below so I can judge your tastes.💧= okurrr ☁️ = the right decision
I wish I could show you this picture in full screen with details. It's a bummer that pictures in landscape orientation doesn't get as much rep as it should on Instagram. I remember always thinking about shooting vertical just so I could post with more details on Instagram.
A truly magical sunrise that I won’t ever forget. 🌅
Besides still water, anybody got any tricks for capturing reflections? Any tips & tricks would be greatly appreciated! 🌿
I knew a love like this, wouldn't last forever💙
Me and this mountain have spent hours and hours upon hours of quality time together, I have lost count of how many times I hiked Banffs baby-iest mountain over the past few summers, used to be my post-workday cardio on the reg, and it only felt right I hike it one last time whilst delightful snowflakes fell on me, fresh powder snow under foot and delicate fluffy snowflakes keeping me company the entire time, dreamy 😁❄. Just sneakily, between you and me, I also may have had yet another few tears roll down my chubby cheeks, maybe because the winter wonderland was so beautiful from up there and I was like damn imma miss this, or because I have a vagina and have been an emotional poophead of recent😢🤔😂 I looked down over my bright white Banff and I smiled because it happened, not because it is over 😃🤘 • • •

I can’t help but get excited whenever I see the sky light up like this! This was quite the memorable sunset in Kananaskis. 🧡💛❤️

Sunday’s ⇢ Are for laughing at your Saturday night decisions. For brunch. For reflection. For spontaneous hikes without enough water. For new adventures. And Sunday’s, well they are for being happy as f*#@ in the moment .. stay wild ✌️
Nothing makes you more proud to be Canadian than showing off the Rockies 🇨🇦❤️
