There are so many things I could say about these two, but few words would give them justice. I’ve been excited for this wedding since we first met in November of 2012. I have to say that Kristen, despite planning a wedding where many things could potentially go wrong, was probably the most laid back bride I’ve ever photographed. And that is seriously saying something. Regardless, that was the attitude that she and Tyrell approached the whole day with. They were there for eachother, equipped with their vows, and that was all that really mattered.
The night before the wedding we got one of the biggest snowfalls I’ve seen here at one time. I woke up to huge drifts on my deck, and had to shovel my way down to my vehicle. Overnight Jasper in January had transformed from it’s usual grey dreariness into a winter wonderland. I had scouted some snowy forest locations to do their photographs at, so we had plenty of time to play in the snow. At dusk, as darkness settled over the valley, Kristen and Tyrell walked down a candlelit aisle at Maligne Lookout and spoke their vows as snow fell peacefully down on the crowd gathered around with parkas and blankets.
Watching these two together is a true inspiration. They don’t even need to speak to communicate, their bond runs deep. They also happen to both be incredibly unique characters, and Kristen is an endless source of entertainment. If one thing is certain in their future it is plenty of laughs. The laughter got off to a great start at the Sawridge during their reception. There were beautiful (and hilarious) speeches, as well as games and plenty of dancing. I’m so lucky to have such creative clients, and this was definitely a very unique wedding to be a part of.
