When I was first talking with Shaynae and Cohl, it is safe to say that I knew that we were a good fit when they mentioned the day’s plan had consisted of a 4 hour time slot set aside for us to adventure around and capture photographs! And adventure is what we did during their fall wedding in Vernon!
The day started in the hotel as they got ready separately with their wedding parties. Shaynae’s mom helped her with the finishing touches and before leaving for the ceremony I had found some gorgeous light highlighting the bride perfectly! The ceremony location was tucked away in the autumn trees. As the bride rode in on a gorgeous vintage Excalibur, Cohl’s eyes lit up. The intimate feel was in the air as these two said there vows, hand in hand, as their closet friends and family surrounded them. Fall wedding day’s always seem to have a way of pulling on my heart strings.
After the ceremony, you best bet that we captured these two with the elegant white Excalibur. I was blown away by everything about these frames to say the least. After capturing the whole wedding party in this lush driveway covered by the leaves, we headed up into the hills! We found a stunning field of golden grass backed by a lookout of Kal Lake that disappeared quickly as a storm blew in! Yet we embraced the wind and rain and captured these two in the middle of it all. Cohl and Shaynae’s love is one that is so true and strong. They simply want to enjoy life together, loving the heck out of each other during every minute of it all. Capturing them definitely had me driving home so happy hearted and loving what I do.
We had to rock one last location to end off the day. We kept it intimate for the two of them and adventured into a canyon/waterfall area where we found moody goodness along with of course the golden fall leaves that we were after! We laughed and said that you weren’t doing it right “Joelsview Style” if by the end of the day the bottom of your wedding dress wasn’t dirty from getting to the good spots. Well.. as you’ll see, they sure did it right!
Cohl and Shaynae, I feel absolutely honoured to have spent the day getting to know you both and capturing your love during it all. One that is absolutely stellar! Thank you both so much for choosing me to photograph it all!
