It is fairly uncommon that we do not have the opportunity to meet our brides and grooms before the wedding. You have phone conversations for over a year regarding the days leading up the wedding, the order of events on the day in regards to facilitating time for photography. Then when it comes time to meet. You wonder what the couple is truly going to be like. Well as we walked up to the Blaylock Mansion in Nelson, BC, surrounded by the sights and smells of the gardens, Ben and I were greeted by a welcome as warm and comfortable as the home itself. Kiyuri and Nick are two of the types of people you can instantly feel comfortable around. With Kiyuris infectious laughter and Nicks solid smile these two made us feel like part of the family from the moment we walked in the door. Their families and guests were no different, and at the pre wedding BBQ on Friday evening we spent far more time talking to all the guests and family that had traveled from all over the world to attend the wedding than we did shooting. That was the power of the types of people Kiyuri and Nick surrounded themselves with. Two families coming together, many members meeting for the first time, and blending so seamlessly that to the two of us, we naturally assumed they had all known each other for years.
It is with great pleasure that I have the opportunity to present a small sneak peak of their wedding photos from an amazing day in Nelson. Kiyuri and Nick, how incredibly humbling it was to have been trusted with the job of photographer on your big day. And more so than merely meeting new clients, we have made new friends. Thank you. And may your travels continue to take you both to new horizons, chasing sunrises together.
