I finished up my super triple header weekend back in Edmonton with Jennifer & Ryan’s fabulous daytime wedding at the Hotel MacDonald. I met up with the bride & groom at Ryan’s parents home where Jennifer was getting ready early in the morning. The couple chose to do their first look there with Ryan waiting at the bottom of the stairs as Jennifer came into sight up top where we walked up to greet her. I love when a couple chooses to see each other before the ceremony since that first look at each other seems to be so much sweeter. It was a beautiful moment with all of their close family watching. Shortly thereafter we headed outside to do a few shots before their wedding with their motorcycle in the street in front of the house. I love that a lot of my couples are really into riding motorcycles, and of course, I love the chance to incorporate the bikes into their wedding photos. So much chrome and metal, it’s just perfect for me!
We set up up the bike in the middle of the street, and luckily, since it was a quiet Sunday morning, we didn’t have a lot of traffic to deal with. Jennifer & Ryan snuggled close and I got this fabulous shot of the in the mirror. I love it! It shows of the bike beautifully and it’s a sweet, intimate moment between awesome people. I love it even more since it’s in black and white, it’s easily my favourite photo from the day! Shortly after, they hopped in the limo and were whisked off to the Hotel MacDonald where we did more of their formal portraits and photos with family and friends before the wedding ceremony in the Jasper Room.
