Steve and Sarah got married at a campground in Cowichan, down a logging road, on one of the hottest days of the year. Their wedding lasted several days and was an epic event, which was fitting since they met at Burning Man.

Their ceremony was super sweet, with Sarah crying while talking about how she loves that Steve makes her laugh, and him proceeding to make her laugh with a very long tissue. Steve said that he’s always kissing Sarah’s teeth because she smiles so much. They posed like that for me, but I caught it a few times, because she really does smile all the time (at least when she’s with him).

This artsy crowd filled the campground with large art pieces and themed campsites, making for some awesome photo backgrounds. Aside from all the art, the guests helped out with pretty much everything, from additional photos to food/drink and a gorgeous cake to fun activities for everyone and flowers from her dad’s garden. I loved watching their friends and family laugh and sing together and the mother-of-the-bride firing a potato gun with unrestrained glee (see below).

Jeff and Rod and a whole bunch of their family and friends arrived in Victoria via cruise ship, for an elegant, fun wedding at The Fairmont Empress Hotel. They played up the glamorous atmosphere of the hotel with lots of gorgeous flowers, candles, and matching tuxes and bow ties (and even an officiant with a bow tie of his own). The guests were entertained by a bagpiper at the reception and even got up and did a traditional dance. I love how sweet and joyous this couple and their wedding was.

I’ve been so busy editing photos from this summer that I’ve neglected this blog. I hate to interrupt my editing flow, but I don’t want people to visit my blog and think I’ve given up photography, so here’s an update. I’ve been super busy shooting weddings, engagements, etc. since April. Below is a couple of peeks at each shoot that I’ve yet to blog (and/or edit). Full blog posts for all of these will follow sometime in the fall. It’s been a truly awesome summer and I can’t wait to share more.

If you want to keep up with what I’ve been shooting lately, like my Facebook page.
