Anytime I book a wedding in late October or early November in Calgary I worry about how the weather will be. Usually this time of year we are walking around in snow! Sunyoung and Santi’s November wedding definitely had me concerned about what kind of weather we were going to be dealing with. Lucky for us, the weather was great! Well, at first it was decent, as in not snowing or cold. Since the ceremony was indoors the overcast sky didn’t really bother me.
Of course the ceremony went wonderful and since this was a day wedding we had an amazing lunch at the Lake House at Lake Bonavista. As usual I was moving around the venue shooting my photos, all while keeping my eye on the windows to see how the skies were looking. Once it was time for us to leave the venue to our photo shoot the skies had yet to clear up. Overcast can be a wonderful friend while shooting wedding photos, but some blue sky and sun is always nice too. Either way I’ll make it work, but then I saw a few breaks in the sky and had my fingers crossed for a bit of sun.
As luck would have it, about 20 minutes into our photo shoot the sun decided to make an appearance and it couldn’t have come at a more perfect time! We had just finished setting up by the river and wa-la, the sun! I couldn’t have been happier and I am sure Sunyoung & Santi feel the same way.
All photos shot with a Canon 5D mark iii, 24-70mm f/2.8, 70-200mm f/2.8 & 1 580EXii Speedlite

Oh my! What a gorgeous couple!
What splendid captures of a very special day.
I now believe the only reason everyone on the planet doesn’t hire you to photograph their most special days, is that they don’t know about you!
Haha well thank you very much! Maybe one day that will change ;).
