Our First Anniversary
Route: Bow Falls, Banff, Canada
For our first anniversary as a couple, I wanted to do something special for us that would commemorate what will be the first of many anniversaries to come. We had known each other for over 10 years before we discovered our feelings for one another so it was extremely important to me to do something to represented that. After months of planning I settled on a photo shoot in the beautiful mountains of Banff, Alberta. We are from a small prairie town in Saskatchewan so a change of scenery was exactly what we needed. While we only spent just the one day in Banff, it was by far the highlight of our trip and the photo shoot went perfect. Even though it was minus 30 with the wind at times, the scenery was jaw-dropping, and our experience was without a doubt one we will remember forever.
For lunch in Banff we went to the Bear Street Tavern, at the recommendation of our photographer Lyndsay, and we were not disappointed. The craft beer selection they had was outstanding and the pizza was one of the best we had ever had. After lunch we went and relaxed in the upper hot springs, which was so relaxing and extremely peaceful. Would recommend experiencing both of these places if you find yourself in the area.
