This was one of those once in a lifetime weddings! When a Firefighter marries an RCMP and has a beautiful outdoor wedding AND they are both drop dead gorgeous to boot! It was a blissfully sunny day in Red Deer and the weather was divine while we watched Susan and Joel declare their eternal love for each other.

The wedding day was full of special touches. Susan was basically Martha Stewart!. She made all the delicious cakes (yes cakes! There were so many I lost count!) and she also did all the floral arrangements herself including the bouquets and boutonnieres.  The bride and groom walked down the aisle between the Honor Guard for both Fire and RCMP, while the Red Deer Pipes Band played.

Susan and Joel… I was so honored to be part of your special day and I am so happy to call you friends!

This post is going to be a tad different from my usual wedding posts. You may not notice the difference, but there is a HUGE difference. You see, I was a second shooter for this wedding…. and I bet you are wondering what a second shooter is, and why it matters. Second shooting is something I LOVE doing! It is when I am NOT the main photographer, but a backup for the one that was hired for an event, and in this case the main shooter was Kai Smyth of Kai Smyth Photography. Being the second photographer allows me to take all kinds of photos I normally wouldn’t be able to take… like the ones from the top balcony in the church, or the candid moments the bridal party has while the bride and groom are busy having their photos done. Mark and Leanne had such a beautiful wedding,  I couldn’t wait to share some of the images I took from that day….. all while second shooting 🙂

Recently the photos on my blog haven’t been showing up! Not sure why, but I am trying my best to fix that problem. In the mean time, I am ready to get back to blogging. I have been negligent with it lately because I have been sooooo busy! Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE the fact that I am fully booked, but I must say that I am ready for a bit of down time.

The first wedding of the season belonged to Mel and Jason. They are one of the most wonderful couples I have had the honor of meeting.  I didn’t feel like their photographer, but I felt like one of the family! I enjoyed every moment of this day and I am so happy for them!!!Mel and Jason Wedding 016 Mel and Jason Wedding 035 Mel and Jason Wedding 044 (2) Mel and Jason Wedding 064 Mel and Jason Wedding 140 Mel and Jason Wedding 176 Mel and Jason Wedding 195Mel and Jason Wedding 320 copy Mel and Jason Wedding 223 Mel and Jason Wedding 231 Mel and Jason Wedding 287Mel and Jason Wedding 040 Mel and Jason Wedding 393 Mel and Jason Wedding 428 Mel and Jason Wedding 460 Mel and Jason Wedding 484 Mel and Jason Wedding 500 Mel and Jason Wedding 503 Mel and Jason Wedding 507 Mel and Jason Wedding 519 Mel and Jason Wedding 534 Mel and Jason Wedding 550 Mel and Jason Wedding 969 Mel and Jason Wedding 970 Mel and Jason Wedding 972 Mel and Jason Wedding 1019 Mel and Jason Wedding 1147
