taryn . nolan's prep; blaylock's mansion wedding

Taryn and Nolan's was an elegant vintage-chic garden wedding on the grounds of Blaylock's Mansion, Nelson.  I knew from the landscape of their prep, that theirs would be a beauty-filled affair.  It was a major blessing and awesome opportunity to share 11hrs together.  Their previews - in several chapters - will testify to the benefits of full-day photography coverage.  The luxury of time helped us grow even more comfortable with each other, our venue and allowed Emilee and I to experiment with our shooting. (This was the first of a beautiful shooting relationship between my new assistant, Emilee - of Electrify Photography - and I.  Look her up if you're in the Okanagan!)
Time is a friend of creativity.
What a sparkly day, what a fun party, what an honor to document their stunning day in a relaxed way.
