Shirley & Mike’s Elopement in the Canadian Rockies

Photographing photographer’s weddings is an honourable entrustment that we’ll never take lightly, especially when the photographers are as bad ass as Mike Tseng Studios! No pressure…

Joined by their closest friends and family, Shirley and Mike travelled from Dallas, Texas to Lake Louise, Canada, to get married amongst the grandeur of the Canadian Rockies.

The mountain backdrops were breathtaking, of course, but the real magic of this wedding, as always, was in the beautiful little moments and stories… the powerful emotion during their intimate little tea ceremony… Shirley’s sister, who could not make the trip, tearfully watching every minute via Face Time… the heartfelt exchange of words and looks when Shirley’s dad emotionally handed his daughter’s hand over to Mike before their ceremony.

Shirley and Mike, it was an absolute honour to witness and document these memories for you and your family. Thank you so much for putting your trust in us!
