A few years ago, I was excited to be asked to photograph a couple of my closest friends, John and Ash, as they were married on Granville Island in Vancouver, BC. The celebration was amazing, and to this day the images remain some of my favourites. Two years later, I was honoured to be asked to join Ash’s younger brother Thomas as he was going to marry his beautiful fiancee Claudia an amazing Kelowna wedding celebration.
In knowing the family already, I knew this was going to be a fun wedding to be a part of. That, as it turned out, was an understatement. Ten minutes after getting there and meeting the groomsmen, I had to take a couple minutes to gather myself as I was laughing so much. The atmosphere continued on this way throughout the whole day, from the first look on the waterfront to the time spent walking around the grounds of Bertram Creek Park, the couple and their wedding party were never anything but smiles. When I was able to take Thomas and Claudia away for a few quiet moments, the love and chemistry between these two beautiful people could not only be seen, but felt. Late in the afternoon, the ceremony was held at on the front lawn of the Summerhill Pyramid Winery surrounded by their closest friends and family. Just before the reception began, Thomas, Claudia and I were able to sneak away to take a few quick photos in the vineyards as the last light of the day was fading.
Thank you Thomas and Claudia for having me join you for your perfect Kelowna wedding celebration.
