The landscape of Kelowna British Columbia is changing. Beauty it seems, is obvious in many places throughout the Okanagan Valley. Check out a little bit of Catherine & Nick's wedding as we visit one of British Columbia's most scenic places.
After weeks traveling through Italy, London, and Iceland, we returned home. It was a bit of a whirlwind as they say, but after a couple weeks sleeping in my own bed, feeling refreshed, and reflective, I've decided it's time for a post about the experience. The following are the highlights, successes, and some failures of the travels.
Winding down with the final days of October, we jumped head first into what is likely our final wedding photography venture of 2018. Fall colours, cool weather, and the beautiful Simon Fraser University all primed for what was to be an excellent day for everyone.
As Gillian and Cailen readied themselves to meet at the University, we documented the pre-ceremony hours with each at family homes. Then moving on to the venue at the University, guests were greeted and welcomed just before the ceremony began. Afterwards, we headed outdoors to the university grounds for some creative and personal photo time with the bride and groom.
The grounds of the University were spattered with yellow and orange bursting foliage. A beautiful enhancement to the concrete designed structures that make up SFU. The sun screaming through the peaks and valleys of the concrete structures created unique opportunities for us as photographers to use the light and get creative. Gillian and Cailen did the rest... Quite...
Just as the minutes wound down toward ceremony time, a storm kicked in and let loose some wild rain. Sean, family, and friends took shelter while Katie looked out from inside the house. With anticipation building, they were able to find a break in the rain to set the ceremony in motion in this wonderful lakeside setting.
Called one of the final wedding events to be taking place at the long standing resort just outside of Vernon BC, we caught up with Kelsi & Tom coming from Alberta to ascend a mountain, and catch some very scenic views.
