Ashley + Mark Wedding, 31 Jul 10

I was looking forward to seeing Ashley and Mark again- such a nice friendly couple- and two of their guests, Jenn and Jason, were my clients from 2 months earlier (thanks again Ashley + Mark for the referral!). Their engagement session was fun to shoot, and I expected no less from their wedding. Always a pleasure to see familiar faces. The couple got ready at the Brookwood Inn, then ceremony and reception both were at the Burgundy Basin, and this photo set featured more photojournalist-style coverage. Enjoy! Getting ready:

Mom was holding the mirror and had no idea I was taking this shot.

I love the symmetry in this one. Dark vs light in the clothing, the subject, the background, the wall even.

Mark, his brother and dad.

Mark's siblings

Onto the ceremony, which was touching and emotional.

Seeing the bride for the first time

This is a neat + romantic idea... a time capsule with keepsakes and handwritten letters (unread by the other) to be stored, then opened on their 25th anniversary.


Finally married!!


Ashley's little sister had a hard time reading her speech. It was touching :)

2 week old baby! He's cute! (sorry, couldn't resist!)

Goofball ;)

First dance was sung by Mark's brother, playing "Wonder Wall" on acoustic guitar

Unusual type of shot for me, I normally don't do 'low key' images like this

Then onto some epic dancing fun!!!

Mark has some serious moves.. and is not shy about showin' them!

I dunno what he said, but it was funny!


Crazy photobooth fun!

"Don't stop believin'..."

Even Grandma and the videographer got in on the fun!
