    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!! :)

    Thanks so much for your kind words Briana! It was a pleasure getting to know you and Max on your wedding day. We can't wait to deliver the rest of your photos soon and see your reaction :)

    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.

    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!

    Extreme wedding photography!

    What a day. The photos are better than I ever could have imagined! Alex picked out a spectacular location for us and, after hiking up, all we had to do was stand and be ourselves while he made us look better than we could have ever imagined! He is willing to put in the kilometers to find the ideal location for the perfect photo and is friendly and professional to boot. Highly recommend him!

    Most comfortable and natural photoshoot

    Alex was so lovely to work with. He and his partner Kat gave us examples of poses and created such a warm and exciting atmosphere for us. We were both nervous about looking natural, and they made it a breeze. Alex has such an eye for photography and guided us through an amazing photoshoot. We are thrilled with the photos and highly recommend alex.

    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!

    Alex Popov Photography's reply:

    Thanks Nicole, I'm really happy that you had a great experience and love the photos too! I really enjoyed the time we spent together getting to know each other. All the best :)

    Amazing adventure elopement

    Alex spent the day with us from our ceremony onward across various areas in the mountains. He hiked with us for most of the afternoon to get shots that we will love forever. Alex was informative, professional but relaxed, and offered genuine and helpful suggestions.
    Alex has an excellent eye for detail, and his landscape shots are world class. Take the time to meet him and discuss your ideas, you won’t be disappointed.

    Alex Popov Photography's reply:

    Thanks Sean! It was a pleasure working with you and Taryn and I'm glad that you love your photos so much!

Meet the Team

Alex Popov
Alex Popov
Lead Photographer

My passion for photography began with capturing portraits and landscapes when I was at university and it’s 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
