Four days after my return from shooting Melissa & Steve’s wedding in the Dominican Republic, I had the great pleasure of shooting Karen & Lee’s wedding. You could say that wedding season is now in full swing, and it’s great to be back at it again! You’d also think that shooting a March wedding in Winnipeg merely days after being in the tropics would be quite the temperature adjustment… but it was surprisingly not that big of a transition! As we all know, we saw some very mild weather in Winnipeg this March, and on Karen and Lee’s wedding day it was no exception. Bright sun, mild breeze and unusual amounts of open grass. Could this be true?
Our first location after the getting-ready photos was at the Legislative building. With Duncan as my second photographer, I knew we were going to get some great shots, and after meeting the wedding party, I knew we were going to have a lot of fun too! I decided to use a lot of off-camera flash for lighting and (thank you to Duncan for holding my lights), we ended up getting some pretty sweet shots. After taking a few photos outside, we managed to take a little detour and stopped at my exchange district studio to get a few quick shots with just the couple. Twenty minutes later, we were off to the St. Boniface Golf Course for the ceremony. The day was relaxed, fun and full of amazing photography opportunities. Karen and Lee were wonderful and it was a great way to kick off wedding season here in Winnipeg! Félicitations vous deux !
