These two came all the way from the US to do a session at Moraine Lake. We had to wake up about 1:30am to get to Moraine in time to get a parking spot, arriving about 3:30am. Of course it was still pitch black, so we dozed in our vehicle for a bit until we could see the first light of day starting to brighten the sky. The thing about this location is that you never know what you’re going to get! I often have had a clear sky and then clouds roll in at the last minute. Or, it’s totally foggy and you can’t see the peaks at all. But for this couple’s session at Moraine Lake, we got the perfect light of sunrise hitting the peaks, plus some pretty beautiful clouds. How’s that for a perfect morning? 🙂
While we locals sometimes can get to thinking that Moraine Lake is overrated, it really is not. It is one epicly stunning location. And especially when you get that light on the peaks!! So if you want to book your session or elopement here, feel free. Just be prepared to wake up in the wee hours of the morning for it! The other option to get out here is to take the shuttle, which can work as well, but you won’t beat the crowds that way. Anyhow, here is the link for the shuttle if you just even want to go for a peak at the lake!
