Stephen + Tanya got Married in Newfoundland!

August 24, 2009

When everything was young and still innocent these two dated for the first time. They parted ways and spent their teen years finding their own adventures. It was some time later that they reunited and found that first love was real love. Six years after that they were married in their home town of Norman’s Cove, NL.

I began shooting weddings in Kelowna, BC where an average wedding day would hit 30 degrees no problem. I was use to sweating a lot and quickly becoming dehydrated. Being a photographer in Newfoundland is quite a different story, the breezing winds and cool drizzle often accompanies on wedding shoots and keeps me cool. For Tanya and Stephen the sun shone and we roasted. Normally after such a hot day of shooting I fall down exhausted but as I left Norman’s Cove to drive home I felt the opposite that day. I was full of energy and happiness that I can only attribute to spending a serene day with a couple that are so happily in love they make everyone else around them happy too!

Thanks guys for reminding me why I love my job!

I always find it so hard to narrow down these images to just a few in a blog post. Today I made it easy on myself and focused on the bride and groom only.

Can’t you feel the speed of which they exited the church? They were so excited to be married and though we loved staring at them I think they were happy not to be the center of attention anymore.

I always like to state my claim on the favorite of the day and this would be it. All the girls were brave enough to dip their feet in the ‘cool’ NL ocean but I loved Tanya standing there on her own, brave and beautiful. She even dipped her train, accidentally of course, and it never phased her. What a bride!

The decorating was done by Tanya’s mom, Janice, and another great lady, Liz, who actually attended a wedding workshop I (and Lori Moss) put off this past May. It was a great job and they come highly recommended by me. As they are new and yet to get a website please email me if you’re interested in contacting them.

I know I said this post was all about Tanya and Stephen but I couldn’t resist to include the ringbearer. stephenTanya

    Call me crazy, but I love her crinoline enough to wear it as a dress 🙂
    I think the first image is my favorite…the light is so beautiful and flattering.
