Blue Water Cafe Yaletown Wedding - Alex and Vania

I remember one phone call I had with Alex and Vania where we were talking about the logistics of the day and Alex mentioned that they didn’t want a typical “First Look” but Vania did want to do a first look of sorts. This had me brainstorming of some potential ideas as I knew what Alex and Vania were looking for but wasn’t quite sure at first how to execute it. One evening, it came to me. On the day of the wedding, I had Vania go up one street and Alex go down another street and as the two reached the intersection of the two streets, they two bumped into each other at a street corner for their “First Look.”

Alex and Vania wanted something different for wedding photography. They wanted something more documentary and more about their family and friends. And while we did take some time to do portrait shots, group shots and wedding party photos, the majority of the day was spent with me doing very little interrupting or posing and instead letting things happen while I worked and ran around the scene to find the best and unique angles to capture some of the big moments as well as some of the little moments.
