Nina and Del’s Kinuseo Falls wedding, part IV

Ladies and gentlemen, the groom:

Having spent the morning with Nina and the girls as they got ready, then catching a ride up in the jet boat with them, we finally got our first glimpse of Del, the groom, and the boys as Randy ferried people over from the banks of the river to the island where the wedding was to take place. Not standing on tradition here, Nina went over to see Del as he walked down the path from the boat:

…and then they all moved to stand at the tip of the island and just like that, the ceremony was starting.

Nina and Del’s Kinuseo Falls Wedding, Part III

Having arrived at the base of Kinuseo Falls, Captain Randy began ferrying people across to the island while I took some photos of the bride, the bridesmaids, the bride and bridesmaids, the bride and her daughter, the bride and some random kid, the bride and her dog and the bride and her brother.

It has not escaped my notice that the groom has been strangely absent from these photos so far. Don’t worry, he is about to make his grand entrance….

Nina and Del’s Kinuseo Falls Wedding, Part II

After getting ready at the Trend Mountain Hotel, Nina and her crew caught a ride up with Captain Randy Gulick from Wild River Adventure Tours.

The weather was a bit cool and overcast, but as we made out ways to the falls, the sun began peaking out from behind the clouds. Here’s a few photos from the Jet Boat ride up, mostly of the beatific smile on Nina’s face. She really enjoyed the trip!

Del and Nina’s Kinuseo Falls Wedding

One week ago, a dream came true.

I got to shoot a wedding at Kinuseo Falls.

And it was as awesome as I hoped it would be. Oh, sure, I wasn’t able to keep them there for 24 hours so my night time portrait at the base of Kinuseo will have to wait, but seriously, that place is awesome, and the photos? Wow.

But before I show you those, I’m going to show you these, of the girls getting ready. Why? To build expectation, of course. That last picture? It’s a teaser for things to come.

Sherissa and Morgan’s Charlie Lake Wedding, Part II

i4detail-2015-01-31 Sherissa and Morgan-253.jpg

In my last post, I intimated that the happy couple was freezing their buns off at a mere -20. That was a bald-faced lie in order to stir up some interest. Perhaps you were expecting them to be blue-skined with icicles hanging from their noses.  They were actually quite well off, her with having a really cool rustic shawl (or is it a wrap? I get confused.) and he having the burning glow of his love for her to keep warm.

I on the other hand was carrying around metal objects with my bare hands at -20. I know, the sacrifices I make for my art. But in the end, it was worth it.

Sherissa and Morgan’s Charlie Lake Wedding

i4detail-2015-01-31 Sherissa and Morgan-058.jpg

Sherissa and Morgan got married on a blue sky day in the middle of January in the Peace.

Typically that means temperatures in the -30 range, but fortunately it wasn’t quite that cold. Only about -20 or so.

The two got married out at Charlie Lake Church, which is one of the nicer wedding venues in the Peace.

I’m going to post a dozen or so photos from the first half of the day, which was the whole getting ready and getting married part of the procedure, which you’ll see here. In a few days, I’ll be posting some photos from the formals of the couple outside freezing their buns off.

Tumbler Ridge Wedding: Danielle and Derek

2013-08-09 Danielle and Derek-by-eye-for-detail-024.jpg

Danielle and Derek’s wedding was about the most casual affair I’ve ever been to, held in their backyard and with only a small group of friends to witness the event. Rather than hide before the wedding, Danielle was down there in her dress, mingling with friends and neighbours.

But the casualness of the wedding was only fitting, considering these two, and it was no less a wondrous for its lack of pomp and pageantry, and it will be a wedding I remember for a long time, for all its simple elegance and homespun charm.
