Japanese Garden Morning Wedding Photos [Brittany & Brent]

Brittany and Brent had the honor of being the very first wedding to take place at Nikka Yuko this spring. Their Japanese Garden morning wedding photos took place half an hour after the garden opened for the season!

Since their ceremony was not until the late afternoon, Brittany and Brent opted to have a first look in the morning. Rather than see each other for the first time in church, the first look allowed for intimate photos of the exact moment they see each on the wedding day. (We love this because it usually means less stress for the couple, fresher makeup and flowers, and a more relaxed timeline.) We had Brent turn around when Brittany was only a few meters from him. You could see the exact moment the corners of his mouth started to curl up into a smile! Brittany swears his tears were on their way, but Brent held it together!

After the Japanese Garden photos, we headed west for some views of the coulees and then family photos in Indian Battle Park before the couple was on their way to their ceremony. We had so many great moments to pull them away from their friends and family. I couldn’t get enough of how adoringly they looked at each other all day.

Congratulations, Brittany and Brent!

After a few quiet moments together, we had the rest of the wedding party join in for photos. It was so easy to get them to laugh and they had no problem doing all the silly hugs I asked! The guys were like light switches, swapping from smiling to serious expressions. The girls, on the other hand, struggled with the serious faces and could barely keep it together for a second or two before bursting out into adorable laughter.

Our late spring meant no leaves were really out yet, but luckily Nikka Yuko has tons of greenery all year long and is always so stunning for photos!

There is something that is universally felt between photography teams that are made up of spouses. Photographers will always rant about this to each other. That is the anger felt when the secondary photographer (your spouse) gets a way better shot than you did in the same place! Cam even asked me if I wanted his position in front of the waterfall and I turned him down. I love all of the layers and depth of field he captured here!

Secret: Brent is wearing his watch upside down and on the underside of his wrist to make this angle work!

Nikka Yuko is always so tranquil and calm. I felt like a monster yelling instructions for these photos across the pond!

One of Brittany’s brothers did not want to hug her for his photo and fought off any family member (even grandpa!) for trying to convince him!
