Gary & Tamara : Married

I had such a wonderful time this weekend; my favourite shoot this week was definately the wedding of Gary and Tamara. She

called me less than a week ago looking for someone to come by for a short amount of time to capture their vows as well as a few

portraits. As my weekend was already quite booked, I hesitated, but once she told me the location I was sold...I knew it would be

special. The couple chose to be married at a tiny Roman Catholic church in Hedley, B.C. It sits atop a hill, surrounded by

mountains, and even a river runs across the property. Each and every time I drive home to the Coast I pass this century old gem, and

have always wanted to shoot here. There were less than 10 people in attendance, and everything from the cows to the piles of

old tires and especially the wonderful guitar player William Legett added to the magical feel of the day. It was so simple, and

exactly the sort of day I would hope for if I could do my big day over.

So, thank you again to everyone that was there, especially Tamara and Gary for inviting me to be a part of your day. And even

though we had a small amount of time for your pictures, I hope you are happy with them; it was such a treat to photograph

you both!
