Ran across this article on Weddingbells that has some great tips on what the bride and groom can do to help get perfect wedding photos. We really like to shoot an engagement session prior to your wedding, which is why it is included in all of our packages, as we find it helps our couples relax during their day and photos.
Almost all of Megan & Mike's wedding guests traveled from out of town to attend their Kelowna destination wedding at Summerhill Pyramid Winery. We were a bit nervous of the dark clouds but thankfully they stayed in the distance until their reception was starting and they provided some stunning landscapes for us to capture.
Here is their story:
Mike and I met while attending school in Thunder Bay Ontario in 2001. I spotted Mike from across the room and it was love at first sight. It took a few more weeks of me asking our mutual friend to introduce us before we finally met for the first time and fell in love.
We went our separate ways for a few years while Mike started working in Vancouver and I moved to Ottawa for school before we were reunited and picked up right were we left off. We have been inseparable ever since.
Kara & Chris traveled in from Calgary for a Kelowna destination wedding at Summerhill Pyramid Winery. Since they were from out of town we didn't get to shoot their engagement session until only a few days before their wedding, but it was still a great way to get to know our clients and let them become comfortable in front of our cameras before the big day.
We started out while they were getting ready at Sunset Waterfront Resort and then proceeded to Summerhill for their late afternoon ceremony. We only had a few hours until the reception started so we just stayed at the winery and utilized all the great and varied scenic locations that Summerhill has to offer.
We photographed Kara & Chris's engagement session this past Tuesday in downtown Kelowna. After meeting at the Kasugai Japanese Garden we worked our way over to the Kelowna Library and finally over to the Art Walk. Looking forward to photographing their Summerhill Pyramid Winery wedding on Friday!
