| Kristy & Matt | Married | 10.10.16 |

Kristy and Matt!  What a great couple, and what a fantastic wedding!  Held at Swan-e-Set, their wedding was SO.MUCH.FUN.  The photo booth, the dancing, the speeches…all so great.

The girls got ready at Kristy and Matt’s place in Langley.  There were some awesome details there, including M&M’s with their names and wedding date! Enjoy our favorites of the day!

Talk about getting creative!  Kristy bought her shoes white, and dyed them green, and then added two broches!  Clever!  And again….another dress I fell in love with!  What’s a wedding morning without a few cigars, eh!!?First look just before the ceremony!!Dan and our super assistant Mark found a blueberry farm to shoot in, not too far from Swan-e-Set.  It was pretty mucky, but we worked out a system to get those two where they’re standing in photo above and below…thanks you guys for being up for this!  It was worth it!!Some group shots along that infamous road…
Kristy had an amazing bouquet!  Love the calla lily and rose combo, and the white pearls on the stem!Ok, cutest little flower girl ever.  It was a beautiful and sunny day!As always at Swan-e-Set, the bridal party gets a set of golf clubs to play around with….The light was SO beautiful at this time….!!!
Again, amazing decor by Wedding Design Studios…they always do a stunning job!Oooh la la!Cake cutting and first dance!
Thanks for an awesome day!!

| Myra & Clayton | Married | 10.11.10 |

Vancouver Wedding Photographers

Day 4 of 4, and no better couple to end our Thanksgiving Weekend Wedding Marathon!

K.I.S.  Keep it simple.  That’s what I noticed as we started photographing Myra in her hotel room.  The room itself wasn’t cluttered with knick knacks, black and white furniture, clean lines, amazing window light (key to shooting getting ready shots at hotels!!!).  They didn’t have a wedding party.  No clothes scattered.  No Starbucks cups laying around.   It was a very peaceful and easy going morning, which made me very calm shooting Myra getting ready and her accessories.

Again, a gray day outside, but that just meant nice soft light, and no heavy Norman to hull around to over power the sun (big flash that I usually have to carry and hold;)Myra and Clayton’s ceremony took place at the Sun Yat Sen Gardens in Chinatown.  There were about 13 guests present for the ceremony.  Loved it!  There’s something about having just immediate family at a wedding that makes me feel all tingly inside.  Can’t quite put it into words.  But I love it.

Clayton got ready in another room in the same hotel, and once he was ready, he came up to Myra’s room to hang out and wait for her.  No big first look or anything, in fact Clayton said that he’d already seen Myra in her dress!  Hey, who says there are rules to these weddings things?!?It gets me every time!  As Myra was saying her vows, she started to tear and had to pause for a second…and I choked up! Hugest calla lily fan!  And love the color combination!Dan and I were pleasantly surprised to find out that Myra was a model in a past life!  Somewhat quiet and reserved, a tad shy…she was like a whole new person when we started shooting after the wedding!Love it!One of their requested locations…so fitting. It was also our first time at The Salmon House in West Vancouver.  Delicious food, great service, and a beautiful view!Decadent!  I ate half of Dan’s too :pMyra and Clayton had requested to have our photo booth at their wedding, but unfortunately, the space was very limited for us to set up our equipment.  So what do you do!? Improvise!  We shot against this interested Native glass art piece in the middle of a wall, stuck our Norman flash behind it outside the restaurant on the patio, et voila! Myra and Clayton’s first dance.  Beautiful!  Clayton’s mom and sister sang Myra and Clayton’s first dance song.  I can’t describe how mesmerizing their voices were! Father-daughter dance!

What a great day.  It’s a very unique feeling being included in such small wedding.  We feel honored, humbled, special.  Thank you Myra and Clayton for having Dan and I.  All the best to you both as you settle down in Ontario!

Cheers,

Well done guys! Was very awesome to meet you both.

| Diana & Brian | Married | 10.10.10 |

Vancouver Wedding Photographers

Diana and Brian were one of the many couples to get married on 10.10.10!!  We had so many inquiries for this day, but Diana and Brian got us pretty early in the game!  The weather this Thanksgiving weekend had proven to be very wet and cloudy, but on this Sunday, the sun shone and boy I bet all the couples getting married in Vancouver and their photographers were thankful!

Diana had me come over to her parent’s place quite early and gave me at least 2 hours to hang out with her and her ladies AND to shoot all the awesome details she had.  I most definitely appreciate being given the time to shoot this part of the day! Dan hung out with the guys and the new PS3 and made mini pizzas for lunch..Their wedding was at the Inlet Theatre in Port Moody…such a cool venue!Once again, the awesome Rev. Brent Sheppard!  He officiate Diana and Brian’s wedding, as he did Brian’s brother’s wedding last year.After shooting some great stuff at the Inlet Theater, we drove down to Rocky Point Park.  Once we got there, Diana told us there was a bench along the pier that was there in memory of her late grandfather.  As Dan was setting up a wide shot, I quickly nabbed this detail.  Diana is also wearing her grandmother’s ring and bracelet.  Awesome!Dan and I had scouted a few locations the days before the wedding and Dan spotted this awesome truck.  I love weddings where there are so many details, and I knew that the little things were important to Diana because before heading over the Inlet Theater for her ceremony from her parent’s house, she wanted to make a pit stop by the Old Orchard Hall where the reception was to be, so that I could get a few detail shots before anyone was in the hall.  I think I overheard someone say that Diana made the table numbers…..wow!Once again with the details!  Diana bought some sandals for the dancing part of her night, and custom made them to be her own, with little crystals…love it!Boy was that cake ever good…The night isn’t over until the boys have a smoke…And the night is definitely not over until shots are passed around!  Mmm, they look yummy!A few night shots on the train tracks, and in the sweet limo below!As tired as we were on our third wedding of the long weekend, Dan and our super assistant Julian and I had such a great time with Diana and Brian celebrating their wedding on such a gorgeous day. Our 10.10.10 was definitely memorable, especially their photo booth!  Check out their slide shows below!

All the best to you both!

Love K&D
