Heli Engagement at Marvel Pass in Banff

Your wedding engagement photos and video should reflect the two of you as a couple, doing the things you love to do.

Madeline (Madie) + John travelled to Canmore from Houston Texas this past August for their engagement photo and video session. They got engaged while travelling in Austria for Madie’s best friend’s wedding. John proposed on top of a mountain in Salzburg after what she says “felt like the worlds longest gondola ride”. They love the mountains and hiking. Since neither of them had ever visited Banff National Park they decided to plan their destination wedding for May 2020 at Banff Gondola (Sky Bistro). Banff is where they are getting married and it’s a bucket list item for them so they decided on having their engagement photos/video there as well.

Alpine Helicopters gave them an amazing experience with “top notch views” as Madie said neither of them had ever been in a helicopter before. They hired Dr. Lindsay Copeland of Twenty Twenty Photography who specializes in Canmore and Banff wedding and engagement photography. Lindsay contacted us to ride along and film the e-session for the couple! We surprised them with a hand tied bouquet of flowers from our sister company Flowers by Janie who will be doing the couples wedding florals next May in Banff. Lindsay also surprised the couple with champagne and cupcakes (from Kake by Darci) at the end of the heli tour.

We flew to the south west border of Banff National Park to Marvel Pass. The views below in the photos and video will speak for themselves as to the incredible beauty that can be found in the Canadian Rockies. From Canmore we flew over the Three Sisters, Spray Lakes Reservoir, Marvel Lake and Mount Assiniboine. We landed around 7,200 feet near Aurora Lake for amazing views where we captured the couple in photo and film doing what they love; hiking in the mountains.

Words from the couple:

“The heli shoot was incredible. Oscar and Lindsay were super welcoming and made us feel very comfortable from the beginning. They were both playful and patient with us. They went above and beyond in the services they provided from a stunning floral bouquet to delicious cupcakes and champagne at the end! We ended the day back at Lindsay’s place and got to know each other more over beverages on Lindsay’s patio. Lindsay opening up her home to a couple of strangers really speaks to her character. Overall we had such a fun experience and would recommend it to anyone!” -Madie + John
