- Wedding: September 2013
One of my few splurges with the wedding was our photography. I am a really practical person so a few family members were surprised however since Mr. J was ok with it (didnt understand but was willing to humour me lol). after seeing the photos those same people (Mr. J included) “get” it now!
Being an amatuer photographer myself, I needed someone I could trust wirh not just technical skill, but artistic talent and sense of composition etc. I didn’t want to look back at our pictures and feel like I could’ve done a better job haha We hired Just For You Photography from Edmonton, photographers I have followed for years, and are infinitely more talented than I! Lol I was so thrilled they were available for our wedding date!
Mr. J is wearing a tux to our wedding and we decided to have most of our engagement pics with him in his red Serge (formal RCMP uniform). I decided to wear a white dress so I wouldn’t clash or disappear next to that beautiful orangy red uniform (and I can wear it to our rehearsal dinner too – practical me strikes again). It did lead to some confusion with acquaintances thinking that we has already gotten married lol
There were problems with the hair trial I had booked to coincide with this shoot, as in she didn’t actually DO my hair, just played around with styles. I had washed it previously and not put product in (I have unruly curly hair) thinking she was going to do it, so in the end I begged her to do *something* but it was quickly done without product ups ended up fuzzing up halfway through. Oh well, I still am happy with the pics with my handsome man!
We live in Vancouver and had our engagement photos taken in gorgeous Stanley Park.
