Venue: Spirit Ridge Resort

One of the things that I love the most about our jobs is that it lets us see so much new terrain and shoot in new and interesting locales. When Amy and Jason contacted us about shooting at the Spirit Ridge Resort in Osoyoos, British Columbia we were very excited. I love coming into a place like that with no preconceptions about what ‘should’ be done for wedding photography. We deliberately do not check out what other photographers have done before – instead our plan is to just show up the day before the wedding, scout for good light and have fun!

Yet another one of our couples who opted to do a ‘first-look’. Perfect! Amy was so excited as she approached Jason!
And I love his reaction as well!

After their first look, we got to wander the resort premises for a little while with them

After that it was back to the resort for the ceremony and reception. To say that it was hot on that roof would be a bit of an understatement – I think the guests were really glad for the fans and umbrellas. I know both Duane and I were very happy with our decision to each pack a second dress-shirt. Otherwise it could have been a little socially awkward…

Very impressed with the decor and details that Janis put together for them! Making their entrance into the reception…

This just confirms my long-held theory: it’s not really a party until somebody busts out a harmonica!

They even let us steal them away for some quick and relaxed portraits at dusk in the vineyard. So nice to shoot when things started to cool down!
