Malcolm Carmichael

Owner.  Full Time Photographer in Banff.  30 years’ experience.

Malcolm’s reputation precedes him.  His attention to detail, ability to help you relax in front of the camera and have fun, and his expertise in ‘capturing the moment’ makes him stand apart from the crowd.

His impressive resume includes: Director of Photography at the Winter Olympic Games in Whistler, Hotel Photographer for the G8 in Kananaskis, Official Photographer for the Canadian National Ski Team (over 25 years), Celebrity Sunshine Ski Invitational for many years, and of course over 3000 weddings in the Bow Valley.

Sharon Carmichael

Office Manager.  Owner of Elope in Banff.  22 years in the Wedding Industry.

Sharon is likely to be the first person you speak with when you contact Alpine Peak Photography.  With her extensive knowledge of Banff and Lake Louise, she will help you determine how much photography coverage you would like on your wedding day, suggest locations, and help you plan a timeline that will ensure a fun and relaxing celebration.

Sharon loves planning smaller intimate celebrations and the Elope in Banff (EIB) team have become a big part of the Banff Wedding Photography team.  Couples come from all over the world to celebrate their marriage vows in the Canadian Rocky Mountains. For EIB, Sharon plans, meets, tours, and is present on your wedding day.  She takes care of all the details so you can relax, enjoy, and make the most of your time in the Rockies.

For larger celebrations, Sharon often accompanies Malcolm or Roger as their assistant on your wedding day.

Roger Witney

Full Time Photographer in Banff for 30+ years

Roger is reliable, dependable, consistent and you can always count of him to take INCREDIBLE wedding portraits.

His expert knowledge of the mountains, weather, lighting, and locations makes him a valuable member of the Alpine Peak Photography team.  With his fun personality, crazy noises and whistles, yet calm and patient manner, Roger gets lots of requests and return clients.

Roger & Malcolm work together on larger corporate events, Canadian National Ski Team and lots of conventions.  Although they don’t work together at weddings (they are both so good, there would be a lot of duplication), it could be requested.

Drew Butler

Full time editor 3 years.  Artistic Professional Photographer.

Drew Butler is our wedding editor and has been living in Banff National Park for the past 3 years. He is originally from Toronto, but moved to Banff in 2018. Drew has a precise eye for composition and light making him an amazing photo editor. He has a passion for making the bride & groom look their very best on their special day. His editing skills mixed with Malcolm & Roger’s beautiful photographs are a recipe for success.

For each wedding, Drew edits every single image for colour, composition,and duplication.  He removes closed eyes, stray hair and cleans up skin blemishes.  He deletes people from the background, signage, fire extinguishers and the odd tattoo.  Drew selects final images, stores files, and burns USB cards.  For bridal portraits, he will add a little “glamour” to the brides close up images, just to enhance the natural features and give the bride that “magazine” look, we have found this to be very popular!

Along with photo editing, Drew has an online shop where he sells his photographs on print and canvas. The majority of his artwork is based around cityscape and street photography. Since moving out west, his portfolio has grown with some landscape and wildlife imagery. His work can be viewed at

When not behind the camera or editing weddings, you can find Drew skiing, golfing, hiking and exploring the Bow Valley with his partner Alanna and newborn son River.

Sarah Causer

Wedding Coordinator – 15 years in the event industry.

Sarah has valuable experience as an event planner, and brings a huge wealth of knowledge and expertise to the EIB team. Sarah loves the creative process and watching as a vision unfolds and comes to life. She is always excited to weave her magic in smaller, more intimate, heartfelt celebrations where nature and our stunning repertoire of mountains, rivers and lakes provide a natural backdrop.

Sarah, also born in the UK, has lived in the Bow Valley for 25 years. As a long-time local, she knows the area intimately including all the best places to eat & play and loves sharing hidden gems of information with those seeking to get the inside scoop on the area.

Upon arrival in Banff, Sarah meets with EIB wedding couples for that final consultation to collect your marriage license and tour of Banff. On your wedding day, Sarah will arrive early to assist the bride in getting ready. She will accompany the couple to the ceremony and will be with you for the duration of your photographs.

When she’s not coordinating weddings, through her consulting business, Sarah supports others to connect and build solid relationships with their inner landscape as a platform from which to build & nurture loving relationships with themselves, with others and the world.
