Rebekah first reaching out to me over one year ago in hope of working together to capture her intimate wedding with her fiance, Dan. I seriously can’t believe that a year has come and gone, and that I’m sharing these images from their cozy ceremony yesterday!
When Rebekah first told me that she was planning on having their ceremony at The Photographer Studio – I was intrigued. The Photographer studio is highly sought after space by local photographers just like myself for in-studio sessions. I never imagined seeing this blank canvas turned into a wedding ceremony space. My jaw hit the floor when I arrived.. literally. Rebekah and her family worked tireless the day before to get the studio set up just perfectly to seat their guests, have their ceremony and pop the champagne! There was a beautiful mixture of vintage couches, floral arrangements and personalized accents to compliment the theme.
After the ceremony, we headed downtown! Downtown Edmonton has some of the best spots for Wedding Portraits – both family and bridal party. It was my first time shooting at Kinnaird Park as well. The park overlooked a side of our downtown Edmonton skyline that isn’t often showcased. It was a gorgeous backdrop for some formal portraits! We headed out from Kinnaird Park and embraced one of Edmonton’s oldest neighborhoods. It’s no surprise have a soft spot for character, complimented the theme of the day just perfectly.
Yesterday was one of those days purely focused on love. Looking back through these images I found myself tearing up – and I’m not just saying that. I’ve added one of those moments here in this blog post that I’m so happy to have captured. Watching Rebekah’s dad squeeze his little girl one last time before handing her off to the love of her life is something I’m so happy to have captured. Dan looks SO proud to start this journey with his new wife!
Rebekah and Dan, thank you. I always close my posts with a sappy message, but I need you to know how important it is that you chose me out of hundreds of photographers. I hope you look back at these images and remember how special your love was on that day, and that May 1st marked a milestone in your history.
