Another covid wedding and I'm in awe. It was a beautiful day celebrating Brendan + Camille in Brendan's parents backyard with their closest family + friends.
Brendan + Camille reached out to me earlier this year inquiring about a wedding photographer. We met at a coffee shop in Calgary and as they approached the table I was sitting at I was met with a fun, down to earth and friendly couple. When they contacted me asking if I would photograph their wedding, I was honoured and so delighted. They are some of the most kind, beautiful and welcoming people I have ever met. As we did Engagement photos I had the honour of getting to know them even better. They are filled with so much love for each other, down for adventure and a lot fun - I felt like we clicked so easily.
The wedding day from beginning to end was peaceful. As I approached the girls getting ready location I was met with fun and friendly bunch. There was so much laughter and joy that filled the house. As I walked into the kitchen I was met with Camille's sister doing Camille's hair and makeup and guys it was absolutely beautiful! I honestly thought she did hair + makeup as a profession. Camille's wedding dress, let me tell you...WAS GORGEOUS! It was a champagne/peachy colour and complimented her so well. Especially with her purple hair - I was in awe of how stunning they looked together.
As Brendan + Camille stood on the bridge during the ceremony, it felt like they were the only two in the room. The way they looked at each other and knew that without a doubt that this was the person they wanted to spend the rest of their life with - it was an absolutely beautiful moment to witness. I was really happy when I found out that it still worked for them to get married on their original date. I feel for couples that have to change their plans around due to covid and I'm excited for them when I find out they can go ahead with their original date. Even though the wedding day doesn't look quite as they had planned it, I've loved watching the creative ways couples make this day special and catered to them.
Weddings are unique in the way that they connect you to different people within a short span of time. I've felt so honoured to meet not only the couple but the parents, relatives, grandparents and the bridal party at each and every wedding. I was super impressed by Brendan + Camille's wedding party. Never have I seen a more supportive group of friends honour and celebrate their friends that well. They were ready to help and go wherever they needed and made sure the wedding day ran smoothly. They are an amazing group of people to have on your team and I know will support Brendan + Camille so well during their marriage.
I can't forget to talk about the CUTEST flower puppies you ever did see. Brendan + Camille's dog, Moxie, was so photogenic and knew exactly how to pose for any picture taken. Both Moxie and Brendan's parents dog were absolutely adorable and I fell in love right away. It's hard to see all these cute animals celebrating the day with them and not want one myself!
I was honoured to be a part of Brendan + Camille's wedding day and I can't wait to celebrate BIG with them next year at their reception with all their friends and family. Congrats again Brendan + Camille! <3
