Whether it graces your coffee table as a conversation piece or is stored in its luxurious linen box for safekeeping, there’s nothing more special than having a tangible piece of your love story.
HOW TO CHOOSE THE BEST BANFF ELOPEMENT PACKAGES
Choosing the right Banff elopement package for you and your partner involves considering several essential factors. When deciding among my Banff elopement packages, my top advice is to dream big. Eloping in Banff with your soulmate is a once-in-a-lifetime experience, and I’m here to help you make the most significant investment in celebrating your unique love story.
01. ACTIVITIES AND LOCATIONS
The primary factor in selecting the best Banff elopement package is determining how many activities and locations you and your partner wish to experience during your elopement. If you plan to immerse yourselves in the beauty and exciting experiences that Banff offers, I encourage you to allocate ample time to savor each moment without rushing.
I encourage couples to intentionally slow down and savor the day, moment by moment. A meaningful pace is a significant aspect of what I bring to elopements. I’m flexible and more than willing to divide my Full-Day elopement package into two days, providing you with 12 hours of photography spread across two days to ensure you seize every moment and optimize the best lighting and weather conditions for photos.
As mentioned earlier, the weather in Banff can be unpredictable year-round. I recommend setting aside a few extra days for your elopement to allow for rescheduling in the event of severe weather. Embrace the beauty of mystical Banff, even if light rain, fog, or a delicate dusting of snow occurs. Such elements can enhance your photoshoot, creating a dreamy and magical atmosphere.
03. TIME OF DAY | PHOTOGRAPHY TIME
Sunrise, sunset, or both? The choice is yours. Decide whether you want a enchanting vow ceremony at sunrise, a magical first dance at sunset, or both. I value flexibility and creativity, so the sky’s the limit when it comes to your elopement experience. I’m ready to accommodate 12 hours of photography over two days or in a single day, depending on the locations and activities you select.

EXCITING, INTENTIONAL EXTRAS
01. INVESTING IN THE ENVIRONMENT
Booking a Banff elopement package with The Organic Moment is not only an investment in your love story but also in the environment. I’m an eco friendly Banff elopement photographer and with each elopement package booked, I plant new trees during your elopement month to celebrate your love.
02. SUSTAINABLE PLANNING
Eloping, as opposed to hosting a large wedding, is inherently sustainable. It leads to a smaller carbon footprint and reduced waste, making it an earth-friendly choice. For those looking for a completely sustainable elopement, I’ll create a customized elopement guide highlighting various ways you and your partner can incorporate eco-conscious choices into your elopement experience. From renting your attire to staying in an eco-friendly Airbnb and working with sustainable vendors, I’ll guide you toward making environmentally-responsible choices. During your elopement, we’ll also practice the 7 Principles of Leave No Trace, leaving all locations better than we found them.
03. A FRIENDLY TOAST
The evening before your elopement, we’ll meet up, raise a glass, and get to know each other in person before the big day!
04. MEMORIES THAT WILL LAST FOR GENERATIONS
I’m delighted to offer a physical, thoughtfully curated elopement photo album with each elopement package. Additionally, prints, extra albums, and linen print boxes are also available for purchase. Linen print boxes make for excellent gifts and provide a special way to include your loved ones in your celebration, especially if you’ve chosen to elope without friends and family.
