The Summer Wedding at Lindon House Sampler
Today's wedding took place at Lindon House, in Kelowna. It's a old mansion, built in 1905. It was jaw dropping. It was absolutely difficult for me to pick a cover image. I had to make a tough choice. Here's the runner-ups.
We start out, of course, with detail shots. Rings, the dress. In such ...

The Lush Wedding at Linden Gardens Sampler
Today's wedding took place at Linden Gardens. There's a a lot of advantages to this location. It's green everywhere. There's no shortage of spots for photos, and there's no shortage of locations nearby for photos.
That was a runner up for the cover image. I like the slowness, how intimate it is, but I fel ...

The Scenic Wedding at Predator Ridge Sampler
I've never driven a golf cart around Predator Ridge to catch a sunset before. Robyn, the co-ordinator, contacted me a week before and told me that I could borrow one to scout around for todays event. Of course, we went over every inch of that resort. And it's incredible.
That was my other choice for a hea ...

The Red Barn Wedding at Lone Pine Ranch
Above was my first choice for a header image. It was a tough decision, the runner up was strong. We stopped by the Red Barn to say hello to the horses, and happened upon a composition I'm quite happy with. Sometimes, the wind blows the veil around. I call these happy little accidents. Much like this little video of some of the day' ...

The Evening Wedding at the Okanagan Golf Club
Sparklers are always good for wedding cover images. I had a different one in mind, though.
Today was every kind of special. You may remember these two from an engagement last year. They remembered - I saw my photos printed everywhere!
Needless to say, the decor was beyond impeccable. And ...

The Saturday Brunch Wedding – From Kaloya Park to Ellison Hall Sampler
This was a unique wedding in every sense of the word. Start at 7:00am, ceremony at 10:30, formals done by 1pm. And the theme? Brunch.
Let's not get ahead of ourselves, though! This story starts at 7am, at an airbnb in Oyama. The flowers had already been prepared, and they looked incredible.

The Lovely Wedding at Royal York Golf Course Sampler
That header image was a tough decision. When you've got full control of an entire golf course you end up with a very full memory card.
That was my runner-up. These two photographed so well, it was difficult even narrowing it down to two.
So, as always, we start with the detail shots ...

The Evening Wedding at Lone Pine Ranch Sampler
I'm a fan of these weddings later in the day - around 4:30, a cool evening breeze has set in, and you know the weather will just get better. Plus the sun is lower - an old adage is, the further you shoot from the noontime sun (the overhead sun) the better your photos will look. There's a lot more to it than that, but it should remi ...

From Kopje Park to Lone Pine Ranch Wedding Sampler
This wedding was unexpected. I had no idea I'd have such a blast, hanging out with some of the funnest people I've ever met. The venue was incredible, and the details, such as the flower chandelier, were like nothing I've seen. If you're looking for wedding ideas, get out your notebook.
We began in Kelowna...with an amazing set ...

The Kelowna Wedding at Laurel Packing House
Update: Full gallery at http://www.drahtphotography.com/gallery/the-laurel-packing-house-wedding/
Kelowna has a lot of places to shoot wedding formals, you just have to look for them. They're hidden away, like the location just above. It was tough to choose just one header image. So, here's the runner up.

The Helicopter Wedding in the Mountains Sampler
Quite the header image, but truth be told, it was tough to pick. We had some pretty stellar runner-ups.
That's on top of the video blog. Yes, I like to video blog weddings sometimes. Click here to see it!
To be honest, this has been one of the toughest samplers to put together. ...

The Wedding by the Ocean Sampler
Quite the header image, hey? I've had a photo like that in my mind for a while. I love the ocean, and I love water, so docks are a natural draw to me. This wedding took place at the yacht house too, all the walls facing outwards were made of glass. It was a surreal experience.
I should also mention, this is the first w ...

The New Years Wedding at Lone Pine Ranch Sampler
There's something special about a winter wedding. This one is a little different - several days ago, amidst -14 temperatures, we had snow. Record breaking snowfalls.
Some of you may recognize these two. In the late summer, they invited me to their property in Beaverdell, and we had a lovely evening engagement session. I couldn't ...

Jareds Big Day Sampler
It was an incredible wedding at Predator Ridge. One of my favourite fall venues in Vernon. At a lovely 8 degrees, the temperature was co-operating just fine too. Until, of course, we found ourselves in a heavy rain turning to snow. This led us to my first choice in header images, beating out the bridge image just narrowly.
I fee ...

The Autumn Apple Wedding Sampler
Fair warning, a lot of this sneak peek is going to be me raving about how much I love weddings. Fall weddings, though, are a whole new ball game. They tend to be cloudier, the tones richer.
Hope you like the banner image, I had a pretty decent runner up. These decisions are hard to make sometimes.
A lo ...
