Trash the Kilt - Chris and Heather

Alright.  I have been waiting to post these and I am so excited to share them with you.  Alex and I both worked very hard to produce these few images and we are very happy with the results.  I have to say though, Chris - building that ramp and having the guts to fly down the trail off the ramp for the first time in front of the cameras - awesome!  Not to mention half of the wedding party was there watching.  Well done you two.  It was a blast to watch and a blast to photograph.

Thank you Chris and Heather so much for having us there on your wedding day and then some.  What an experience!!!


Chris and Heather Kent - Wedding Day August 6,2011

Chris and Heather - our first BC wedding since moving to the Okanagan, and what a great way to start.  I think I mentioned this before, but Alex and I have never felt more like family at a wedding than at this one.  Everyone was so welcoming and kind - Alex and I would love to thank you all for that (and for all the yummy food!!).  Now lets talk about the bride and groom.  Normally we write about the day, what we loved about it, and how fabulous the special couples we photograph are...but this time we would like to make things a little more personal.
Dear Chris and Heather,
You two make one tough couple.  What Alex and I have learned about you in the time we have spent with you is that you are very motivated people with great passion for life and love...and maybe some scotch.  We want to congratulate you both on your new life together and wish for your lives to be an exciting journey (about as exciting as a groom flying off a ramp...on his bike...into the lake...wearing a kilt!)
We are so happy to have gotten to know you and everyone at the wedding - what a wonderful bunch.
Thank you, thank you, thank you.  We can't wait to get these photos in your hands.  Please enjoy them today, and forever.

Cheers, Drink Scotch

Amy and Alex

More photos in their way! Trash the Dress session next!

- I have to add in a funny story just now.  I was asking Alex what the date of the wedding was so I could add it in the blog post.  As he scrambled to get to a calendar, I said "WAIT! Check your wine glass".  Sure enough, he was using the wine glass that Chris and Heather gave each of us as a party favor from their wedding with the wedding date on it.  Chris and Heather - thank you for the wine glasses.

Chris and Heather - Flowers

We are about to post Chris and Heathers wedding photos, but before we do that I would like to share some images of flowers that Alex spent a long time perfecting while I was photographing the bride to be.  These flowers were planted all around the property of Chris' mother and fathers place in Green Lake BC.  Chris made sure that everyone noticed the hard work that his mother had put into getting the garden looking perfect. It was beautiful.  Enjoy - we did.


Chris and Heather - Wedding Day Preview

It's past midnight and I am super tired, but I couldn't not share these few photos with you that Alex and I took at Chris and Heathers wedding this past weekend up north in Green Lake, BC.  What a beautiful place, with beautiful people.  I don't think I have ever hugged as many family members of a bride and groom as I did at this wedding - and Alex can say the same.  We were welcomed with open arms and such warmth.  But more of the sentimental stuff to come later - for now - some romantic photos!


Marc and Kate - Photo Booth

Alex and I were so thrilled to hear that Kate and Marc were tying the knot and instantly thought, would we be their wedding photographers?  You see, Kate and I have been great friends for about 12 years now and we have most certainly had the talk about how hard it is to enjoy a friends wedding when you're the photographer, so Alex and I went as guests.  What a Beautiful wedding, and so much fun - I don't think we could have enjoyed it more!

We decided that our gift to Marc and Kate would be to set up a photo booth at their reception and have some fun with their guests during the night.  And of course, I just had to post some of our favorites!  Enjoy!

Marcs family flew from far and wide to attend the wedding - as far as Ireland!

Alex and I both agree - this is the winner for best photo in a photo booth - EVER! Nice Janelle!

Marc and Kate - thank you So much for sharing your amazingly perfect day with us both.  We have to say…you're great friends, outstanding people, and so very lucky to have one another.  And Marc - this is your official welcome to the "cool pool".  Love you guys <3
