Iconic Moraine Lake - Mid day shoot

Let's be honest, most likely if you are coming to visit Banff national park, you have Moraine Lake or Lake Louise on your bucket list, and for good reason! These lakes truly are stunning. Join me as I reminisce about Leonie and Marc’s iconic Moraine Lake engagement shoot!


I, Krystal, Fly Free Photography’s boss babe, would consider myself somewhat of an expert at Moraine Lake engagement shoots. Imagine your very own dreamy engagement session with the deep blue Moraine Lake waters as your backdrop! I and my team of super talented photographers would love to document your love story. You can learn more about our team or skip straight to pricing info here.


Moraine Lake Shuttle

Leonie and Marc flew all the way from Germany which I was so excited about! I had been talking to Marc for a long time, prior to their engagement session. He was so excited about going to Moraine Lake. Of course, being from Germany, he was unaware of the restrictions that had been put in at the lake. If you’re wanting a photoshoot here, please know that it’s not as easy for everyone to get over there anymore. As of 2023, you can no longer drive your personal vehicle over to the lake, but must use the Moraine Lake shuttle, which needs to be booked in advance.

Moraine Lake Proposal

Marc and Leonie have been together for 6 years, with a gap year in the middle, so 3 years this time round. They met each other again at a stop light after the gym one night, which is so stinking cute if you ask me. Originally, Marc was going to do a surprise proposal, but thought a bit more about Leonie and realized that she would want to be dressed up. He was having a difficult time coming up with a reason for her to get all glammed up without tipping her off. So he ended up proposing two days before and then we did their Moraine Lake proposal shoot. We kinda staged their proposal at the same spot that he actually proposed to Leonie. Even though we couldn't capture the surprise moment, it was still such a dreamy engagement session. They’re a super awesome couple and I loved hanging out with them. Two outfit changes is always on my list of tips, and just adds an extra element to your shoot. To which Leonie just changed in the bush, my kinda gal! If you’ve been around here long, you know that I love couples that are just down for an adventure! I cross my fingers that I might get to see them again for their wedding.
