An Okanagan Wedding in a Beautiful Old Park
First off, this is a highlight, If you’d like to see the proofed wedding photos, pop by my gallery right here. To see EVERY proofed photo, head to my pixiset. I’m going to keep these photos up for about a week. After that, you’ll need to contact the bride for any photos you’d like to download.
Setup went quite well. Many, many white chairs under a picturesque old oak tree. Some lanterns and flowers were being put on. Bridesmaids and groomsmen arrived as well as friends and family to help set up.
And all too soon, it happened. Bridesmaids, groomsmen, the whole procession. This is where I start to get pretty excited. Because I love weddings.
All done! A successful marriage! Time to get some photos of the new happy couple. I love outdoor weddings. In some churches, if a pin drops, you can hear it twenty feet away. Outdoors, I can concentrate on angles. I can stay back a little back, and use my zoom lens. I don’t like to be right in the middle of the action.
I think photographers should be hardly seen and hardly heard during the ceremony. Then, during the formals, the photographer should be all you see and hear!
Our new friend, the butterfly, decided he’d like to be in the photos. Every wedding is full of firsts, and this was one for me!
I also really like bridges. Polson Park has a ton of them. If you ever visit Vernon, Polson Park is a must. Gorgeous views, and nearly unlimited places to take photos in!
Love this. There were so many kisses on the cheek. This is where my 85mm f/1.2 really shines. You shouldn’t shoot a whole wedding with it, I probably use it about 35% of the time. Is it ever amazing though. The way it captures highlights blows me away to this day.
Everyone has to sign the guestbook! Except for the dog. He made his presence known, though!
A few more formals and group shots…….
Even the horses played along on this magical day.
I try to end every wedding with a photo of the couple together. I love it. At the start, there’s the rush, the insanity. At the end there’s drinks and great food with the dearest of friends.
I can’t wait for the next one! It’s coming soon!
