Jaimie and Seth's wedding. Where to even start. It was held on Seth's family farm, where they're going to live! It's a gorgeous place with lots of room, and I was so excited to shoot there! The day was coming up, and the forecast said rain. No problem - the forecast here changes multiple times a day. That morning, everyone got ready, I photographed the guys and everything was going to plan!
Jaimie's Dad built this for the ceremony! A lot of love and hours went into it, as you can see:
And then it was time for the ceremony, and the rain started to come. We decided to wait it out, until things took a turn, and we realized we'd be waiting until 7pm. The guests came to the rescue, everything was moved to the shop, tractors were used as a backdrop, and Jaimie and Seth took everything in stride!
And then it was time for portraits. Guys, I'll be honest. This was the most challenging portraits I've ever done. So. Much. Rain. BUT I had amazing help, and everyone was ready to go! The canola field was CRAZY muddy and wet, and 100% worth it. We brought the wedding party to the shop later, worked some magic, a little photoshop help to get rid of the truck and windows, and bam! Beautiful shots of a super fun group!
Sisters! I photographer Ali's wedding at the beginning of June, now Jaimie, and Megan is getting married next year! Say a prayer for their parents.
And finally, out of the rain and into the tent for the reception.
And of course, once the pictures were done and everyone had eaten and danced, the rain stopped. Just in time for some fireworks! The perfect way to end what ended up being the perfect day. Congratulations, Jaimie and Seth! You guys are incredible, and your day was one for the books!
While shooting, Seth's brother and Jaimie and I's cousin Lindsay came to hold umbrellas to help out! Game. Changer. Shout out to those two! Lindsay took a couple 'behind the scenes' shots while we were in the Canola field. I'd lost the skirt and was down to bike shorts with rubber boots. I really am just all kinds of classy when it comes to weddings.
I've had some seriously good luck with toddlers at newborn sessions lately. Like, sweet little ones who are happy to hang out with their new baby and do whatever I ask! SO AMAZING! And this little one was no exception with his new brother! The Buchan boys were the sweetest! The proof:
Fern and Mike got married at Trickle Creek Lodge in Kimberly BC, and it was a day I won't forget any time soon. Every detail was perfectly thought out, and all of their loved ones surrounded them as they said their 'I Do's' and promised to love each other forever. They got ready, went and did a first look and did their own personal vows with just the two of them, and it was beautiful. Back to the Lodge, second dress for Fern, and off to the ceremony! Portraits in the most stunning places, a gondola ride to the top of the mountain for family pictures, and a reception where everyone could laugh and celebrate together! The perfect day for the most beautiful couple. A little look at their wedding:
This family is spread all over the place, so they took the opportunity to get pictures done while they were finally all together! And I'm so glad they did. An evening in Red Deer with the Keogh Family:
Jeremy + Daniela + Baby!
