Christina & Geoff: An American Wedding in Canada-land

This wedding was a glamorous one from start to finish, and I was fortunate to get to shoot this one alongside my friend Paul from PMG Image – fortunately, he didn’t ask me to hold his lights or reflectors – he basically said “shoot it the way you want to”.  And shoot I did…there’s one thing I love about second shooting, and that is, no responsibility!  As odd as it sounds – it allows me to focus on trying a new and different technique, one that I may not have otherwise tried on my own, and not have to worry about it going wrong since I’ll know that a pro like Paul is going to get the shot.

If you’re an NFL fan, then you may recognize the groom, Geoff Hangartner as the starting Guard for the Carolina Panthers.  This dude one is one bear of a man.  I think his official statistics have him at 6’5″ and over 300lbs.   Have you ever tried to make a bear laugh for photos?  It’s as intimidating as it sounds.

The bride. Christina. Oh my the bride…are there words to describe how beautiful of a person she really is?  You know when people talk about a smile that lights of the room?  They were talking about Christina, only hers doesn’t light up a room.  It lights up the entire Banff Springs Hotel.  She looked absolutely jaw-dropping in her Lazaro gown and it couldn’t have been a better dress for her (she had considered a Pnina Tornai but chose to go with the less audacious and less revealing Lazaro….a perfect choice!).

Christina and Geoff: Fairmont Banff Springs Wedding

Last weekend I tagged along with PMG Image and we created some images for the beautiful Christina and the behemoth of a man called Geoff.  Here’s one fun fashion inspired image of Christina (posted with permission from PMG).  Brides, I know you’re checking out that dress and saying…I LOVE HER DRESS, WHO IS THE DESIGNER!??!  It’s a Lazaro…gorgeous isn’t it!  As beautiful as Christina’s smile.
