Last week, I had the opportunity to photograph a last minute wedding. I literally found out about 4 day prior. While I was shooting my niece, Brittney and her husband Adam's wedding, my brother asked if I could photograph his visiting relative's wedding. Of course, once I found out I had the time available I immediately said yes. Next thing you know, 4 days later, I was at Kakabeka Falls celebrating and shooting another wedding.
Paul and Tracy were the wonderful couple I was hired to photograph. They are both actually from London so it was kind of a unique wedding. As you can see from the photos the ceremony was very small, just the closest relatives. I love these intimate weddings as it allows me to focus more on individuals because there are less people then normal.
The ceremony started about 30 minutes after I arrived which gave me a chance to get some preparation shots as well as capture some of the nervous energy. Once the ceremony began, it was very beautiful. You really couldn't ask for a better backdrop then Kakabeka Falls. Plus, it was an absolute gorgeous day for a wedding.
After the ceremony was over, I quickly grabbed Paul and Tracy and we walked down the boardwalk a bit to focus on some portraits. All in all, we spent about 20 minutes doing so, but came away with a lot of wonderful photos. We then ended with all the family portraits which was very fun as well. Everyone was extremely easy going and just there to have a good time.
It was a pleasure to meet Paul and Tracy and be a part of their wedding. If you told me I would be photographing a visiting couple from England earlier this year I probably would have laughed. That is why I love wedding photography so much, you just never know who you are going to get the opportunity to photograph!
