So many things I could say about this wedding!! It was incredible.
Frasers family has a holiday home right near my childhood home in Wells Gray Park so we used to spend quite a bit of time together as children. We re-connected a couple years back and when I met Alysse there was nothing you could not love about these two. They are comfortable, happy, calm and have this way of making you want to go on some sort of adventure…. pretty much the best type of person.
Now living in Kamloops Fraser & Alysse decided to host their wedding on Alysse’ grandparents property in her hometown, Courteny BC on Vancouver Island. Once you see the photos you will easily see why!! Stunning! The whole area is lush green goodness with a massive tree as a centre piece. Classic Vancouver Island style!!
Fraser & Alysse decided to do a first look before the ceremony, but we also managed to do a first look with the family! No doubt about it, when brides, grooms, fathers and mothers are able to show their raw and real reactions without thinking “there are 150 people watching me” is one of my favourite moments to photograph.
Anyhow, I could go on about how awesome this wedding was, but you get the idea. Looking forward to seeing and photographing a few of these faces again this coming summer!!
Thank you Fraser & Alysse for having me photograph your wedding day, it is an honour.
Big thank you to my sister, Rebecca Louwerse, for joining me for the trip and being my wonderful Second shooter.
Also to Nick for his amazing MC skills!! My stomach was sore from laughter!
