We didn’t have a great deal of time to hit all the spots in Dawson Creek that Josh and Katelin wanted to get to, but we kept things moving, and we actually managed to get wedding photographs of them at all the locations they were planning. And I gotta tell you that when I posted the photos on Facebook, they were extremely well received, and not just by Josh and Katelin and friends, but by a bunch of my photographer friends, too.
A lot of that has to do with the setting; a grey overcast January day in Dawson Creek doesn’t seem conducive to taking great wedding pictures, but you’d be wrong. Admittedly, subject matter here counts for a lot (cute couple), but there’s just something to be said for that whole white on white (on white, as the cape and dress were slightly different shades of white) look. Oh, sure, it would have been a different story if it had been -40, but outside of slightly frozen fingers (easily solved with a new pair of Minnesota Mittens), it was a great experience.
So, um, if any of you out there are planning on getting married in winter next year (in Dawson Creek, Fort St. John, Grande Prairie or even down in Cuba), do let me know, because I’m loving the look of these winter weddings. (I know the look of a winter wedding in Cuba is a bit different, but I’m pretty sure I’d manage…)
Here’s a slideshow featuring many of my favourite shots. You’ll see most of the shots I posted earlier, plus a whole bunch of new shots, too. Enjoy.
