It was a brisk fall afternoon with plenty of sun, the perfect day for a wedding! The day started at 2:00pm sharp at theThunder Bay Conservatory. This was my first wedding there and it was by far my favourite setting to date. The backdrops for all the photos were a photographer’s dream.
The ceremony took place on the small bridge which had a serene stream running underneath it. Both Jackie and Marcy looked beautiful which only made my job that much easier for the all the photos I took that day.
After the ceremony we got photos of all the groups and a few of just Jackie and Marcy. With the light streaming down from the glass roof, it made for some truly great photos.
Next up were the outdoor portrait shoots. This is where the real fun began. First up was one of the more popular spots in Thunder Bay, Hillcrest Park. We did a few photos by the canon, down by the trees and of course with the sleeping giant as a backdrop. As always I was able to snap a few candids as well.
From there we went to Boulevard Park. After taking some quick shots on the bridge we ventured down on to the rocks. Both Jackie and Marcy showed no fear jumping over large puddles and doing their best not to slip and fall.
Another spot we had on our list was Centennial Park. We could have spent all day there but instead we picked a few locations and just rolled with it. Again both Jackie and Marcy were up for anything. Whether it was getting in the bulldozer or climbing up on the horse carriage, nothing was off limits.
Before we called it a day we did one final pose at the top of the bluffs. The day went by super fast and we got a lot done in 3 hours, including the ceremony! I couldn’t have asked for a more fun couple to photograph. They were both extremely easy going and willing to do anything I said!
