This styled shoot was literally everything I had dreamed of and so much more! Adding an extra day to my Arkansas trip was a million per cent worth it because I got to work with some extremely talented people and cross off something from my photography bucket list (doing a styled session while traveling). And to think it all started off with me leaving my comfort zone for a few hours one day back in January.
The rain never had a chance of dampening Diana + John’s wedding day! Not only did the sunshine of John’s life brighten up the otherwise dreary day, but just seeing how these two looked at each other and how they made each other laugh with such joy, would bring a smile to just about anyone!
I cannot even begin to properly explain just how perfect Diana + John’s wedding day was as the start of our 2018 season. From being at one of our favourite venues to all the beautiful and personal details so perfectly infused throughout everything, it was truly lovely. But as usual, what that made this wedding day so great weren’t the actual things, but rather the people. Not only are Diana + John so incredibly nice (and funny to boot), but they are absolutely one of the sweetest couples we have had the pleasure and honour of working with over the years and they surrounded themselves with family and friends who are equally as wonderful!
If there is anything I have learned over the years it is that wedding days can be chaotic and stressful at times. And there have definitely been days where the stress of the couple has passed along to me and gotten me a little stressed out too. But then there are weddings like Nathalie + Marc-Andre’s. They had planned such a peaceful, relaxed, family-filled day and they didn’t let anything sway them from that disposition.
As we drove back to Ottawa after Nathalie + Marc-Andre’s wedding, I told Dave (and he of course agreed 100%) I was absolutely certain that there was no better way to have officially started our 2017 wedding season than with this kind-hearted couple and their day!
