When we met Melissa & Josh a few months ago for their engagement session here in Fernie, we took them on an adventure. Our travels involved off-roading in their car, hiking up and down steep slopes, and a creek-crossing, which unfortunately resulted in Josh’s brand new leather shoes getting soaked. At their wedding last Friday, we found out that we made Josh’s day on the engagement session because he finally got to take their Subaru in the bush AND his shoes, which he hated wearing before, became super-comfortable after they took a swim! We were set up for a great day!
If ever there was a contrast between an engagement session and wedding, Melissa & Josh would be the example. Both the wedding ceremony and reception were held at the very classy Divino Wine & Cheese Bistro on Stephen Ave in downtown Calgary, and we did a more urban feel for their wedding pictures. Neither of them were set on a ‘traditional’ format, so we did their portraits with them prior to the ceremony, and then went right into the party after it was over.
Melissa and her bridesmaids got ready at the Hyatt Regency in downtown Calgary. They have such a beautiful space that I couldn’t help but take a few quick portraits of them before we met up with the rest of the wedding party!
I love this image that Kevan captured of Josh and the guys.
Melissa and Josh both went to school at SAIT, so what better spot to do some of their portraits! Here’s Josh waiting patiently to see his bride for the first time…
Melissa & Josh managed to get two classic Mercury Montereys and a sweet old Caddilac for their wedding vehicles. They were riding around in style!
Congratulations to you both and thanks for an awesome day!
