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.

A couple of weeks ago I got to photograph this beautiful Merridale Cider wedding for an adorable couple, Shauna and Dan. Shauna e-mailed me about photographing their wedding without realizing that Dan is actually my friend’s brother, and I’ve met Dan and his family several times. It was fun getting to meet Shauna and her family and see Dan’s family again. Shauna looked gorgeous and they were very sweet together.

My favourite part of this wedding was when Dan’s father told them that they’d have to take part in a German/family tradition of doing a task after the ceremony to prove that they could work together in marriage. Turns out that task was sawing a log in half – quite the feat in a big white dress! But they did eventually get that log sawed, even if they needed to trade in for a better saw.
