a single frame tells an entire story

I came across this moment while I was designing Vanessa and Darrin’s wedding album.  I think this has got to be one of my absolute favourite photos. ever.  I believe this single frame tells and entire story all on its own.  All the other photos are gravy.  I love this.

Vanessa & Darrin: the wedding

This is gonna be a long post….

Vanessa has been a close family friend for well over 20 years now.  I’ve actually had the privilege of growing up along side her and at the same time watching her grow up.  When she asked me to photograph her wedding, I was honored in so many ways.  I had never met Darrin before the night of our first consult, but I knew instantly that this guy was for real.  He had his head on straight, presented himself with a calm and reasonable demeanor and carried a shy smile.

Thank you for giving me the opportunity to be there for your big day.  It means a lot to me and I am humbled by the kind words and emails I’ve received from you since your wedding.

The wedding was held in Calgary at the beautiful Fairmont Palliser.  Both the ceremony and the reception were held in the Crystal Ballroom.  What an amazing venue for a wedding!  The Palliser is a magnificent venue with loads of victorian charm and detail.

Thank-you as well to the Inspired Occasions wedding planners who did a bang-up job planning the entire wedding in just 6 short weeks – over the Christmas holidays and New Years no less!

And as always, a shout out to my Voice Activated Lightstand (aka 2nd shooter) for the day, Brittany Esther. She helped make the sure the lighting was spot on for many of the shots by continuously adjusting the light power as directed haha.

UPDATE: I received an email from Vanessa after she saw the photos and I’m so happy about her email that I thought it should be included here:

“I LOVE IT!!! Those pictures are AMAZING. I’ve called my mom and told her to check them out too!!! WOOHOO!! I can’t wait to go to work tomorrow and show them off!

I hope you know how amazingly talented you are… We are so lucky to have had you as our photographer. :)”
