It was another great wedding day at Deep Cove, Vancouver
Although I have called Vancouver my home for many years now, the beauty of this area still never ceases to amaze me. There are many locations in easy reach of the city where you can enjoy nature, wilderness and breath-taking scenery as the perfect backdrop to your special day. As a professional Vancouver wedding photographer, it gives me great joy to combine this with my passion for timelessly capturing beautiful moments and using my technical skill, creativity and unique style to showcase you, your loved ones and your special event.
Each wedding I attend has its own magic. Using a mix of reportage and portrait photography, my philosophy is to capture this in exquisite and stunning detail while making you feel relaxed, comfortable and having a good time so that you will shine.
Recently I had the pleasure of capturing lifelong memories for a beautiful couple Martina and Jan who held their wedding ceremony in Deep Cove and wedding reception in an outdoor setting in North Vancouver. I had a great time taking photos of the day from start to finish. From the preparation time of Jan and his groomsmen, the preparation of Martina and her bridesmaids, the wedding ceremony followed by portrait shots of Martina & Jan and family, to the wedding reception and of course that romantic first dance as husband and wife.
The day began with the groomsmen arriving to meet Jan in one apartment and the morning was spent in good spirits. Whilst the men were sharing drinks and laughs while dressing, I was taking photos to capture the sentiment and the fine details including the suits and watches and then later capturing portraits with the groom and his closest friends. Once the men had left, Martina and her bridesmaids arrived to prepare and the morning was spent taking a mix of beautiful portraits, reportage and capturing special moments such as the bridesmaids helping the beautiful bride to put on her wedding dress and Martina being collected by her father and taken to the ceremony at Deep Cove. Whether I am taking candid photos or directing the expressions and poses during the portrait shots, there is always an emotional charge which makes it so special to be part of this day.
Martina & Jan were lucky to have such a beautiful, sunny day for their wedding day which was primarily an Vancouver outdoor wedding in a natural-themed, garden setting. It was evident that nature, family and friends are important to them and it was great to encapsulate this spirit in photos of them having fun and enjoying themselves surrounded by friends and family.
