Lorissa and Kyle got married at the beginning of July and I was lucky enough to photograph their beautiful wedding. My day started with Lorissa and the rest of the bridal party, as well as some family members, at their house. I always enjoy the 'getting ready' photos because it gives me a chance to kind of ease into the day and also get more acquainted with the wedding party. Plus, there are always so many great candid moments to capture. This particular time was no exception.
Since it was very nice out, and hot, we were able to do a lot of the getting ready photos outside, which is always a good thing because there is so much more room, and light! With that being said, one of my favourite moments from this portion of the day was Kyle's gift to Lorissa ... and new puppy! Suffice it to say it was probably the cutest dog I have seen in a very long time and you can tell from the photos, Lorissa fell in love immediately
Once everyone was done getting ready, I headed over to the church to get photos of the guests arriving. It also gave me a chance to check out the church, which I had never been to before. It was a pretty big one an luckily so, because Lorissa and Kyle just about filled the whole place with their family and friends. The ceremony itself was quite beautiful.
After the ceremony, we took care of the some of the immediate family portraits as well as my usual array of candids. There were a lot of people as I mentioned above, which means plenty of opportunities for photos.
It was then time to head on over to Fort William Historical Park for the rest of the wedding day. Once everyone arrived and took a minute to regroup, we hopped on the shuttle bus and headed over to the Fort. That's where we got all the wedding party portraits done. It is by far one of the most beautiful locations in town to take photos, so I feel very lucky anytime I'm able to do so.
Even better was that Lorissa and Kyle left a lot of time for us to spend there, so we weren't rushed at all. After all the portraits were done it was time to head back to the main building where the ceremony would be taking place. There was still some time to spare so a lot of the wedding party and some of the guests used that windows to relax in the parking lot before everything began.
The final part of my evening was the ceremony itself. I was only there to cover some of it, but the time was I there, I managed to capture a wide variety of guest photos and of course the wedding party entrance as well as a couple speeches. As with most of the weddings I do, it went by very fast. I couldn't have asked for a more fun couple to follow around for a day in Lorissa and Kyle!
