Back in July 2014, Sheilagh and I discussed her wedding photography.
On the 17th of August this year, she came back to me, again, asking me if I was available to shoot her wedding in .......5 days !!
I was not actually, as I was booked in Calgary for the weekend, flight ticket was purchased and arrangements were made with clients for their photo shoots......
I know how stressful it is to get closer to the wedding date, I can't imagine the amount of stress she must have been going through not having a photographer being 5 days away from her wedding. She booked someone, but at the last minute they both agreed it wouldn't be possible.
I changed my flight to Calgary, contacted my clients ( who were all, but one, okay to reschedule) and I went to meet with Sheilagh and Ian to discuss their wedding.
When she opened the door, I was in shock with her beauty and .... for some reason, I couldn't control my words and I told her how beautiful she is. I shocked myself, I'm usually very self controlled.
Meeting went well, they both have a strong personality and know what they want, me, I'm sure I can provide them with nice imagery of their day so : they booked me and I had 3 days to scout locations and get ready. I contacted Darren who agreed right away to come over to Comox to second shoot, we went through the details and all was set.
Saturday came fast enough ..... and we were on the game to shoot what would be a beautiful wedding, with amazing people, very nice guests and family, stunning locations, good food !! All was put together to make a memorable wedding.
They had the cutest little girls walking on the red carpet : Grace and Sofie, 2 and a half years old twins, as cute as pie were the flower girls ( and they made it to the end of the carpet :) ) and Olivia was the ring barer, beautiful little girl whose Dad was in the bridal party.
They had a beautiful very emotional ceremony by the Puntledge Rive in Courtenay.

Thank you so much Sheilagh and Ian for allowing us to be there at your wedding, it was our honour to be able to document it.
We wish you all the best for the years to come.
