A week ago, Pamela and Stephen got married at the Empress Hotel in Victoria. They brought along Pamela’s sister and Stephen’s best friend to share in their special day. My second shooter Jon Faulknor and I also got to tag along. We didn’t get a chance to meet before the wedding because they live on the mainland, but luckily we got along great and had a lot of fun. The Empress does an amazing job with their wedding/elopment packages, with gorgeous flowers and a super sweet cake, not to mention the stunning setting.
I meant to put these up earlier, but it took longer than anticipated because there were so many photos that I really liked from this wedding. I hope these photos help their friends and family feel a bit like they were there, and that Pamela and Stephen are on a computer somewhere on their honeymoon loving these shots as much as I do.
While I photographed the girls getting ready, Jon sneakily managed to get some shots (next three) of the guys just hanging out, like the rockstars they are.
Jon recorded the beauty of the room with his ultra wide angle lens, below.
I’m sad to say that Jon took the shot on the below left in front of the Empress. Sad because I think it’s awesome and wish I’d shot it.
Thanks to Jon for second shooting for me, and thanks so much to Pamela and Stephen for sharing part of their special day with us. It was wonderful meeting you.
