Yesterday was a day. Not only did my band, Heavy Things, play what might have been the best set ever (with the exception of last year’s Kispiox Festival, which will be tough to beat), but I had a chance to photograph Mike and Alyssa’s wedding.
Mike and Alyssa are about the cutest couple you could ask for, but they’re about the nicest people you could ask to spend the day with, too.
Their wedding was at Bethel Pentecostal in Dawson Creek (where I appear to be becoming the church photographer, it seems), followed by pictures in Kin Park.
These two shots, though, come from the end of the day, after I had packed up the car. The setting sun was just starting to colour the sky in the fields that run right up to the back end of the Bethel property , so I backed my car to the edge of the field, plugged in one of my lights, and borrowed Josh (of Josh and Katelin fame, who was playing the role of best man) to hold the light for me while I fired off a series of ten shots.
“That’s it,” I told them, and they thanked me, then Mike picked up Alyssa and carried her back into the church gym, where their reception was being held.
Here are two of those last few photographs, which will serve as a teaser to the teaser I normally do once I have a chance to go through all the shots.
