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.

Patti MacPherson

Full time editor 4 years.  20 years Professional Photographer.

Working very hard behind the scenes to make every couple look their very best, Patti edits all the images that Malcolm & Roger capture at the weddings.

With over 20 years’ experience as a Wedding & Boudoir Photographer herself, Patti comes with a vast knowledge and passion for great images.  Upon retiring her studio in Canmore, we were lucky enough to pull her into our team.

For each wedding, Patti edits every single image for colour, composition, and duplication.  She removes the closed eyes, stray hair and cleans up skin blemishes.  She removes people from the background, signage, fire extinguishers and the odd tattoo.  She selects final images, stores files, and burns USB cards.  For bridal portraits, she 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!

Claire Honeyman

Wedding co-ordinator 4 years with Elope in Banff.

Claire Honeyman loves the business of LOVE!

Claire is very much a people person, she specializes in relationship building skills and is a valuable part of the team at Elope in Banff. Her fun personality, enthusiasm for wedding ceremonies and ability to connect with couples, ensures a wonderful wedding experience.

Upon arrival in Banff, Claire meets with EIB wedding couples. She has lived in the Bow Valley for over 25 years and has a vast knowledge of the area, which she enjoys sharing.  On your wedding day, Claire 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.
