Amazing photographers, wonderful humans!

We absolutely love the photos Alex and Cat shot. All of our friends and family have complimented our photos and think they're the nicest wedding photos they've ever seen!
The photos are amazing, but the truly wonderful part of hiring Alex and Cat is getting to hang out with them on your special day! We ended up in a surprise torrential downpour and Alex & Cat truly made the best of the situation by pivoting to a new plan and capturing some beautiful pics and also being super fun to hang out with.
I would absolutely recommend Alex Popov Photography for your big day!

The absolute best wedding photographers!!!

We had a wonderful time working with Alex and Cat as our wedding photographers. From the moment we met them for our engagement photos, we knew that we were going to have fun working with them. They were so easygoing and helped us feel comfortable in front of the camera, and they were also incredibly organized, which gave us the peace of mind that everything was going to run smoothly.

Alex and Cat expertly guided us through each shot during our engagement session and at our wedding while making everything look natural and authentic. They captured all our favorite memories and had suggestions for poses and locations that resulted in some truly incredible shots. Their talent and professionalism shined through as they worked seamlessly with our videographer. They did an incredible job capturing our wedding day, and we cherish the relationship that we formed with them. They truly prioritized us throughout the process and even gave us suggestions for things to do around Canmore.

We cannot recommend Alex and Cat enough as wedding photographers. They are so fun to work with, talented, and professional. We are so grateful for all of their hard work. Thank you, Alex and Cat!

Amazing Photographer

We had such a great experience with using Alex as our photographer. From our engagement photos to our wedding photos, he and his wife made us feel so comfortable! We absolutely loved the photos they captured!

Such a joy!

Alex and Cat are the best. We chose them based on photo style and compatibily as well, and we made the perfect choice. On the day of the wedding, they were chill, flexible and so fun - it was easy to connect with them and we all felt so comfortable right away! We've only seen our 20 "sneak peaks" so far and are absolutely in love. We only wish we lived close to have done an engagement shoot with them as well. I also consider them to be amazing value in the Banff/Canmore area - you can't go wrong! Choose them!! :)

Flexible, knowledgeable, creative and extremely professional

Alex was a pleasure to work with. His knowledge of Canmore and the immediate area is unsurpassed, and he was able to effortlessly coordinate a surprise proposal/engagement shoot with me on the shore of Lake Louise. I couldn't be happier with the services Alex provided me and my fiance. The weather was a bit uncooperative at Lake Louise, but Alex was able to use his creative ingenuity to capture a moody and beautiful backdrop of falling snow. As well, he was flexible enough to suggest another location (Vermillion Lakes) to continue our shoot later in our trip with better weather. To conclude, I would highly recommend Alex Popov Photography for their natural and relaxed looking photos, easy planning of surprise shoots/engagement sessions.

Canmore Engagement Photos

Alex did our engagement pictures in Canmore after we were rained out the day before at Bow Lake. He is pretty laid back and has a good eye for great pictures. The day of, between our first and second location to shoot, it started raining and we almost decided to reschedule for the next day. However, Alex took a picture of us right when it started raining and it turned out amazing Also, the weather cooperated while we waited in our cars and we were able to finish up our shoot at Quarry Lake. We absolutely love our photos. Alex captures the natural beauty of the mountains and lakes while making you feel comfortable enough to be yourself and have more natural pictures as well. We had a lot of fun with him and were able to let loose more than we thought. He also gave us some great recommendations on places to hike in Canmore and Kananaskis. If you're looking for a talented photographer to capture some awesome memories for a special time in your life, I would recommend Alex. Thanks! :)

Couldn't be happier

We loved working with Alex, he had such a creative eye to find unique and amazing shots for both our engagement photos and our wedding. We got sneak peeks right away which was appreciated and the quality of the images was unreal.
Alex is also a great guy just to chat with, my partner and I enjoyed the conversations we had during our shoots. Would highly recommend to anyone!

Beautiful session in Canmore

We had such a wonderful engagement session with Alex in Canmore, AB. The whole shoot was relaxed, fun, and he kept us moving to make the most of the different compositions in the area. He captured stunning light and we were at ease working with Alex. Highly recommended!

Alex Popov
Lead Photographer

My passion for photography began with capturing portraits and landscapes when I was at university and it鈥檚 taken me to some amazing locations including Patagonia, the Bolivian Amazon and all over North America. When I'm not photographing weddings, engagements or family sessions I enjoy landscape photography.

At home in the Rockies, I enjoy climbing, mountain biking, skiing and hiking. Bringing my camera on these adventures allows me to document and share the beautiful views, struggles and accomplishments of each trip!

I want my clients to feel relaxed and comfortable in front of my cameras, so I keep the atmosphere lighthearted and informal. I use cues as well as a variety of static and moving poses to help you feel comfortable and natural. Making you look your best in front of the Rockies finest landscapes is what I specialize in! Browse through our previous clients' galleriesand read reviews to get a feel for our style and how we work.

Biggest adventure: Backpacking the Andes from Patagonia to Ecuador

Bucket list: Backcountry ski from Jasper to Lake Louise
