You can never go wrong with a sunrise hiking elopement in Canmore, on either East End of Rundle or Ha Ling/Miner’s Peak. Both of these locations are absolutely stunning and even though they are popular and easily accessible, they are some of the most beautiful views for a hiking elopement! If you want to avoid the crowds for your hiking elopement, especially on popular hikes like these 2, make sure you choose a weekday.
When Robyn and Johnny and I went up to Ha Ling for their sunrise hiking elopement, we were definitely not alone. But it actually created a neat effect with all of the headlamps strung along the trail above and below us.
Since most of the other hikers were heading up to Ha Ling, we decided taking a right to Miner’s Peak would offer a little more privacy. The view of Ha Ling jetting up into the sky from that angle is amazing. Honestly, everywhere you look is incredible. One of my favourite things about hiking elopements is finding so many different angles to capture a couple. And even when it is the same hike, there are so many different options so your photos will never look identical to someone else’s!
Robyn and Johnny read their private vows to each other as the sun started to come up and cast it’s first light on the peaks around them. After the vows, we hiked a little further up, where we were met with some more huge peaks that were really close to us! I love how small some of the mountain landscapes make the couple look! After we finished photos on the summit, we headed back down where we met their family for an intimate elopement ceremony beside Spray Lakes. It was a grand day!
