love & lifestyle photography

kootenay wedding photographer; ashleigh . corey in nelson

Maybe it's a reflection of my movie choice, Big Fish - love it! - but I think bride Ashleigh resembles the French beauty Marion Cotillard with her sultry dark waves and smoky eyes.  Yet it was her calm demeaner that won some serious favor in our eyes.  She opted out of her bridal bouquet - left behind at a salon - in favor of a fresh-from-the-garden-variety and not keeping her guests waiting. 
It should come as no surprise that the down-to-earth one - most likely found weeding in worn blue wellies in her garden - prizes her loved ones most [including the 4-legged variety].  There were free-range dogs decked out in formal-wear wandering Ashleigh and Corey's property in South Slocan.  Little dogs, big dogs, dogs in bowties and tuxedo vests.
After the bare-footed ceremony, we toured the grounds including hills and vales, field, and rock face.  We hiked in golden sunlight, posed by the antler-shed, played around their wood pile and had a little swing in a hammock for good measure.
Thank you for being so very you on your special day.  For prioritizing what is important and for being up for anything, photographically-speaking.  We love your kind!  More to come...
And with gratitude, as always, to Jacob J for assisting!
