Before I get the privilege of sharing Melissa and Kalon’s wedding with you, I feel I would be remiss if I did not quickly mention the events that have transpired in our sleepy little valley this past week.

I am sure all of you have heard of the missing child from Sparwood, who was taken from his home on Tuesday night/Wednesday morning. Needless to say that it rocked the communities of the valley pretty hard. While I would never wish for these events to transpire, it was amazing to watch the communities band together, to do what needed to be done in a moment of crisis. I would venture that most people in the three towns stepped up to the plate to volunteer to cook, organize or search. At midnight on the first night, Duane and I were wading through chest-high thistles and up steep banks with a woman in her sixties who had bad knees and who had been out there for two hours longer than we had. This is just one example of course – a big debt is owed to all of the search and rescue crews, the rcmp, the cooks and the volunteers organizers.

It is hard to describe the elation and buzz in town when we all heard the news on Sunday morning. From being so low on Saturday night, when things were looking increasingly bleak, to waking up to learn the best possible news. Wow, what an answer to prayer.  I don’t think my wife and I were alone in our tears of happiness.

Anyway, Melissa and Kalon! What a privilege it was to spend the day with these guys and their wedding party. They gave me complete freedom to explore from their ceremony in Sparwood all the way back to their reception at the amazing Island Lake Lodge. It was the first overcast day that we had in quite some time, and quite honestly I was so happy to shoot in a bit of open shade for once! I love beautiful sunshine as much as the next guy, but it really opens up the possibilities when those clouds roll in! So, when you add great light, creative freedom and a superbly stylish couple then only good things can happen – I really love shooting these small, intimate affairs!




This was the first backyard wedding that I’ve done. I loved it!

After walking out of the ceremony, they shared a quiet moment alone around the front of the house.
From there we did a little exploring for the romantic portrait session as we made our way back to Fernie, and Island Lake Lodge for their reception

We found a field with some giant hay-bales, and decided that we had to pay homage to their Saskatchewan roots.

I’ve been surfing online more than 4 hours today, yet
I never found any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough
for me. In my view, if all webmasters and bloggers made good
content as you did, the internet will be much more useful
than ever before.
