27 Aug The Big Day
I have been looking forward to this wedding for years. Crystal is one of those clients who was a friend before her first session was over (and her wedding is shoot 7, in case you were counting- hasn’t anyone warned you that good photography is addictive?) and long before Darren proposed, I was in there rooting for them. Especially once we did our first couples’ shoot and I discovered he was just as much fun in front of the camera as she was. Now /that/ is my idea of a good catch. 😉
The wedding, though, let me see all the parts of their life you don’t otherwise get to capture on film; the love and strength of their families, the giddy friendships, the incredible foundation of support this marriage is being built on.
(And special thanks to Edmonton Wedding DJ Stacey of PopJukebox for helping me jury-rig lights for the first dance, which meant that a) I was not shooting in pitch darkness or blinding people with my flashes and b) no one saw me crying at how beautiful it all was.)
Here’s a little peek at a wonderful kind of love. <3 (Click on the big image below and then use the “next button” to see more)
