Fun Waterton Wedding [Andrew & Amy]
Two mountain weddings in a row, I’m in heaven! :) This one in particular was such a fun Waterton wedding.
I first met Amy when we both took New Media in university, but she was a year ahead of me so I never really got to know her. Thanks to the wonders of Facebook, though, we were able to keep in touch later, and I was so excited when she chose me to photograph her wedding! Her and Andrew live very close to Waterton, so they decided that would be the perfect location to have their wedding. They kept it very small and intimate with only their parents, her grandmothers, and their “baby,” Beans the dog, in attendance at the ceremony; after we were done photos, they had a small reception in town for their extended family.
What a perfect wedding! We all met on the main road, then headed towards Red Rock Canyon where we pulled over and did a small hike to a field of wildflowers. From that spot, we were surrounded by mountains and couldn’t even see a peak of any of the roads. It was such a romantic location.
Amy was up for anything for photos, and was luckily able to talk Andrew into the same! We had no trouble keeping up with each other, and I was thrilled by all the things she was willing and wanted to do for photos :)
It’s hard to top a rock climbing, canoe rowing bride!
I was assisted by my buddy Sarah, who luckily happened to be back in town from Kamloops that day.
Amy was so excited to start that we had trouble keeping up with her on the way to the ceremony location.
They had ordered Andrew’s dad to leave his camera in the car, but he didn’t listen ;)
Beans was obsessed with the bouquet, so they just let him have it! We later tried to get a more posed photo of him holding it in his mouth, but at that point he only wanted to roll on it.
Beans just ran back and forth while I took photos of them walking down the path.
This guy took photos of them along with me. It’s the “Uncle Bob” you don’t even know!
Amy teaches yoga, so this was perfect :)
They brought their own canoe for photos, and had some family members prepare it while we were finishing the other locations. Amy insisted no one help them put it in the lake so the photos would all be authentic. Beans normally goes out with them, so he was pretty excited to be included again (he was rather distraught I took them out on the dock without him!)
Some behind the scenes goodness.
