Carol and David's Wedding by Kelowna Photographer Neil Slattery.
Chinese weddings are some of my favourite for a couple of reasons: Traditionally the bride and groom are meant to see each other at a tea ceremony where relatives give them hong bao, (red envelopes with monetary gifts) in exchange for tea. This its self is a great time to capture some wonderful images. The door game preceding the tea ceremony is great fun and with David trying to get passed Carol's bridesmaids, I was laughing so hard I had tears running down my cheeks.
These are great opportunities for photos, but the main reason I like this tradition is that it means the bride and groom will be seeing each other long before the ceremony, and as such I am able to do a first look photo session with the lovely couple. This relieves a lot of the stress of having to get all those formal portraits done in the short time between the ceremony and reception. Definitely the way to go if formal portraits are important to a couple on their wedding day.

Stanley Park in Vancouver, BC offers some of the best Photo opportunities in Vancouver. For their engagement shoot, I took Stephanie and Travis for a walk just one portion of the park. I could have photographed them all day, but they offered to buy me dinner at the Cactus Club, so we took a break. Stephanie's only request during the shoot, was to have a romantic picture of the two of them in Gastown by the old steam clock at night. Unfortunately, the clock was gone for maintenance, so we improvised. In the end I'm really pleased with the shots we got. I'm looking forward to their wedding at Cedar Creek Winery in Kelowna, BC.

The snowfall in Kelowna was much anticipated by this mother-to-be. Her desire to have her maternity photo session shot in the snow with her horse was cutting it close. With only a few more weeks left in her pregnancy, the snow finally came. I managed to capture some beautiful images despite the cold, and a less-than-cooperative horse.
