Granville Island Wedding | Vancouver Wedding Photographer

The first thing Christina & Michael made sure I knew about them was that they hated having their pictures taken…..they threw out words like awkward, painful & grimace…yikes!    I had to make sure that they remembered their wedding as fun and wonderful…..not as the day they had to pose for their dreaded pictures.  When they looked back at their wedding day pictures, I wanted them to see how all their love for each other and what an amazing day they had.   Their special day took place at Bridges at Granville Island, which was such a great choice.  We started out at the Granville Island Hotel where Christina and her bridesmaids got ready.  From there we headed out on foot to meet the boys and get the wedding party pictures knocked off.    I love that they brought their dog Howie in for the pictures – handsome little devil. I shot the day with an amazing photographer, Beth from Little Chickadees Photography.  She was totally on point and helped make the day go smoothly…not to mention the beautiful pictures she took.  She also helped get everyone relaxed and laughing….which is so valuable; I cannot even imagine the day without her.  The weather, oh, the weather….the day called for rain, but it looked like it might hold off long enough for us to get the wedding party pictures done……It did, but just barely.  By the time we had to head to Bridges, it was torrential rain.  The brides’ father had to wield two umbrellas to stay covered.  It was nuts!  Magically after their nuptials the sun came out – we could not believe it. The sun just completed a wonderful day that we were so blessed to be a part of.  Thanks so much Christina & Michael, I look forward to meeting your 2nd baby (after Howie of course ;))
