We love being a part of so many weddings and capturing all of the incredible moments! Last fall we had the privilege to travel out to the B.C. coast to capture Sandra & Paul’s intimate wedding! Here is what they said about their experience with us!
“Our wedding day was so exciting to plan. We had selected a beautiful venue with lots of water, sun and forest, and we knew we needed a photographer who could capture the day using these amazing natural wonders. Sandra had known Melissa for many years and seen her and Jared’s work develop on their website, and we believed they could make all this work. We were amazed at the results, which are evident from the photographs, but it’s the process of working with Melissa and Jared that is the real story.
The most important part of the process is to get them booked, so we contacted them early and arranged for them to arrive at the venue and entire day early. They requested this so they could follow the light and select the locations and their shots for the next day. We also arranged our wedding day so they had as much time as they needed for the sessions. In our case this was four hours split between ocean views and two forest venues. Jared also suggested an optimal setup for the outdoor seating area so he could better capture the ceremony.
For 36 hours, Melissa and Jared were completely and totally focused on us. We were so calm on our wedding day because they were in our heads about what we wanted in our special day photographs. Melissa and Jared are incredibly kind, patient, and never made us feel rushed throughout our photo shoot with them. We laughed lots and felt at ease to just enjoy our day and the process. We’re so glad we did.
Our best advice for anyone using this couple is to get them involved as much as possible, arrange your days to give them time to create their magic and then trust them to capture your day in a most amazing way. We did and we have memories that will last us a lifetime.”
Thanks so much to you both for taking the time to write this for us! For now we will leave you with a few of our favourite photos from their wedding day! Check back in later on this week for their blog post full of incredible moments and breathtaking scenery!!
