You would assume that sharing images as a wedding photographer would be easy. Just choose your favourites from throughout the day and post a blog, share a photo on Facebook or publish to Instagram. I must say I can’t agree less! I have the pleasure of meeting such amazing couples and am honoured that they all have an appreciation of my passion for this art and, because of this we create images that I am proud to share. The task of going through the thousands of photos I’ve taken on a wedding day and choosing my favourites is time consuming because I can’t just pick a handful (plus I’m o.c.d just a bit). What you may not always see are the beautiful family photos or images throughout the ceremony. To me they are all perfect because I never take an image I don’t like. So many moments, from smiles to tears to romance and laughter. In the end I try to choose the images that, to me, bring back memories of the day at it’s truest.
When Terry and Josh first came to Ferah and I they were in the middle stages of planning their wedding. From the moment we met they let us know how much they loved our work, heard nothing but good things and trusted in us to take control. We chat for a bit over coffee and gave them our best advice on how to make their day go smoothly and I was so happy to see the gratitude in their faces when our meeting came to an end. I couldn’t wait to spend the day with them because I knew it would end up being a perfect day. Below are just some of the images that I hope you two look back on from year to year and remember each and every moment.
As I sit here and think about this wedding I remember the absolute perfection of the day. Fun loving bridesmaids in the morning and the perfect light in a room set aside just for this day. Seeing Jaclyn walk down the aisle towards Chad waiting for her with complete anticipation. He had a big smile and his eyes couldn’t be taken away from his bride. Standing side by side these two look like soul mates, made for each other. From their looks to their personalities they complement each other perfectly.
A glimpse at our intimate session with Sabah & Kushtrim….
I have to tell you how the first date went for these two! They met in high school at the age of 16 and Pete was determined to show her the best! He decided to take her to one of the best steak restaurants in the city (what 16 year old boy takes his date to a steak restaurant right?). So he picked her up and off they went. Once the dinner was over Pete excused himself and immediately called his friend and now best man at his wedding. The first thing he told him was I think I’m in love, I’m gonna marry this girl. His friend asks “why” Pete: “she finished the entire steak!” Such a cute story and even better to have the people in your life who have seen your relationship through the years standing right next to you.
We had photographed Pete and Kristina’s engagement last year where Pete shared his love for plane’s and the story of how he proposed to Kristina flying over the city. It was amazing photographing these two, everything seemed to come so naturally and the wedding day was no different! It was almost as if the perfect light was following them all day long.
Thank you guys for having us be a part of your day and for sharing your stories!
We’ve been looking forward to this post and finally have the opportunity to share it with you! Julie, Sean and their family and friends we’re wonderful to be around the entire day. We had such a pleasure photographing everyone and hope you enjoy the photos as much as we enjoyed being a part of your day!!
We had the pleasure to be a part of Francesca and Joe’s wedding, which has been called the royal wedding of the area and it was just that. Over looking no detail these two planned out a day that was spectacular. Everything went smoothly and we couldn’t help but notice the amount of smiling people that surrounded these two.
Everyone looked stunning especially Francesca in her Kenneth Pool wedding gown. It certainly was inspiring and we couldn’t wait to capture these two together enjoying their once in a life time moments.
After the emotional ceremony we headed over to the elegantly decorated hall. These two along with Elegance by Design paid attention to every detail. You couldn’t help but say “wow” once you entered and knew that you in for a great night!
It truly was a beautiful event and we are so honored to have been the ones who captured this occasion.
