Aww, smooshies!

A ring shot which ranks right up there among my personal favourites. What was extra-neat about it is that, for the first time, I had a witness: the groom’s sister, friend Steph who, before this posting, would be the only other person to know that these rings sat on a glass-covered wooden table at the Westin Bear Mountain looking like, well, a stack of rings.

But, shoot it through a long lens and line up some dreamy coloured lights in the background, and splat! A not-bad ring shot!

The fancy feet of Lara’s sis and the Maid of Honour, Margaux.

Ring, ring, ring.

Ring, ring, ring, ring . . . banana phone!

What? Who said that? We’re talking about a wedding here!

Rob, at this moment, embodied calm. This was probably right before he threw up.

Okay, no. He didn’t throw up. =)

There were so many variables with this shot — not the least of which being that there are twelve people in it — that I was absolutely tickled to catch everything just so.

Yup, looking like a TV show intro, the bridal party marches down the road destroying all in its path.

Oftentimes, moments in between the portraits carry as much flavour as the shots full of setup and adjustment.

Awesome attitude from Lara and her bridesmaids.

Boy, it was fun working with these ladies. With every location, my direction went something like, “Happy . . . sombre . . . attitude!”

Rob and his groomsmen, exuding that jacket-open cool.

Between the girls and the boys, this was one fine looking bridal party. Somebody get me a modeling agency!
