One thing that I absolutely love about photographing weddings that I will never get tired of is seeing people during one of the happiest days of their lives. Living, loving, laughing. Pure happiness, it never gets old. Its even better when you get to photograph one of your life long friends get married. I've known Blain my entire life, from sleepovers when we were little to club soccer in our teens. I was so pumped when I heard he had gotten engaged and even more pumped when I met Miriam for the first time, she is absolutely fantastic! I was super excited and honored when Blain and Miriam asked me to photograph their big day and it turned out awesome!
Blain and Miriam had chose to get married in the countryside on an awesome piece of property called Grandview Acres just outside Kamloops. When you think of Kamloops, instantly the word 'HOT' comes to mind. Luckily the temperature had gone down for the weekend and there were clouds and a nice breeze which made the day very comfortable.
Like all wedding shoots, our day starts early with the ladies photographing the 'getting ready' photos. I have to say photographing Miriam and her girls getting ready was some of the most fun I've had doing prep photos. Everyone was there to have a good time and just enjoy themselves, which set the mood for the rest of the day which went perfectly.
Congratulations again Blain and Miriam! Thank you very much for inviting me to document your very special day, it was a blast!
