I swear that some people just have that extra gear in life you know? Take Tiffany for example. Most people have their hands full with planning a wedding, but that wasn’t quite challenging enough for Tiff. Nope, she decided that she needed to complete her doctoral thesis and defend it about a week prior to the wedding. In the ample spare time that she must have had between the wedding planning and the degree, she consistently maintained a wedding blog. For relaxation, she and Ian trained for the marathon that they will compete in on their honeymoon in Europe. On their freaking honeymoon.
Pictures right? We were really excited to shoot in Fernie again this summer, because we had two new locations that we have been dying to use. As you’ll see below, I think they were worth it.
The Lizard Range decided that the time we had allotted for Tiffany and Ian’s first look would be an ideal time to release the rain that it had been holding back all morning. I suppose that the Elk View Lodge was an adequate backup plan.
It was going to take a little more than rain though to keep these two from having an adventure with us.
The first new location required a 4×4 to get to, which happily Ian was able to provide. On the way to the spot we came across some dirt bikers, and Ian managed to talk them into lending him one of the bikes for a few minutes. Given that he still had to get married in that suit I don’t know how excited Tiffany was for this development.
I love this next shot. I think its the gum-boots.
then there was the little matter of a wedding to attend to.
During the cocktail hour, they let us steal them up to the crow’s nest for a few minutes.
As a surprise, Ian’s grandmother made Ian’s favorite Danish casserole for him.
