Last year when I photographed Liane and Daniel’s wedding, I knew Strathcona Park would always be on of my favourite venues, in fact, I think it IS my favourite venue. So when Chris & Bri picked me to do their wedding at Strathcona I was stoked. Right away when I met these two we just “clicked” (pun intended) and I loved getting to know them through their engagement session and countless emails. Little did I know I would show up to this venue a few weeks ago with my buddy Gwen that we would come as professionals providing an incredible service of wedding photography, but leave as friends. As cheesy as it seems we really did!
Chris and Bri, thanks for sharing this incredible day with me, from a mini zip line to laughs, then to photobooth antics and antlers. I’m so happy to share these photos and was it ever hard to pick, hence the very long post. I hope you enjoy!
Shout out to Gwen Ewart for some of the shots below and keeping me company second shooting on this awesome weekend.
