Avneet & Melissa | Mountains, Sunshine, Rain & a Grizzly

This was a crazy day in the mountains!  Last Sunday I met Melissa & Avneet up at Moraine Lake.  We had tried to do their engagement session last fall but were rained out and then the road was closed for the winter.  Melissa was determined to get the shoot done and at the amazing Moraine Lake.  The forecast was bad.  It rained as we ascended the mountain and was pouring by the time we got to the top.  Melissa looked fabulous, they had driven in from Calgary and the wedding is in 3 weeks.  We didn’t want to re-schedule again, Melissa had her heart set on Moraine Lake so we decided to give it 10 minutes.  You know what they say – wait 10 minutes and the weather will change.  Well it did!!  A patch of blue sky came across and we had an hour of sunshine!!  It was perfect!!  As we climbed back down the rock pile the weather was changing again.  I wanted to get some shots down by the water and driftwood and we did get a few in the downpour, but had to pack it in pretty quickly.  On a side note – on the way to Moraine Lake we saw a Grizzly which was pretty cool!!
