Karen and Chad…K and C…Ch’aren! I mentioned this on my Facebook page following their wedding day but I’m happy to say it again: simply being with these two makes you feel better, about all kinds of things, Yourself, marriage, love, friendship. And let me clarify, you don’t have to feel bad to appreciate this kind of ‘better’. It just is, they just bring more good. They are kind, happy, relaxed, genuine people whose families are filled with love and support. You’ll soon see that Karen radiates pure joy and confidence and Chad, a quiet, easy confidence. It was truly my honour to photograph their northern Muskoka Wedding day. Karen and I actually met years ago, she now lives out west but is originally from this beautiful little town I call home, Sundridge. Although I could have predicted it, this was yet another rainy September Saturday in Ontario. On this day it poured. And it didn’t matter one single bit…until we had to run a long distance out of a field in the pouring rain.
I had a blast this day. It’s rare that I get to shoot weddings in my own sweet community. There were plenty of familiar faces, lots of reminiscing, some of my favourites – groomsmen in underwear, and of course a little dancing too.
Ch’aren, I can’t wait to see you again soon. We’ll eat, drink and be marry…hopefully in Calgary next month.
