Karen & Greg
Black & White Wedding Photography

Karen and Greg are one of those amazing couples that so obviously belong together. The joy in each others’ presence and the delight of the two families as they came together to enjoy their marriage was amazing to witness. I loved how the day was focused on the two of them. It was a Friday in July luncheon wedding on the lawns of The Ranche in Fish Creek Park. It was simply sweet.

There was so much laughter as the girls got ready.  A bridesmaid dress that just would not sit properly, makeup that had not been opened since it’s trial, uncertainty of what pair of shoes to wear. The ceremony time approached slowly as the details came into place. Pastor Ray Matheson shared the couple’s story until that day. It was obvious just how wonderful of people they were individually and just how amazing they were together. Truly, my heart swells when I remember how the afternoon passed with family and friend’s showing support for Karen and Greg.

Later that evening we met in Priddis for portraits with Karen’s horse Stormy. No words can quite encompass that one hour.

You may notice something a bit different about this post. Karen first contacted me a couple months prior to their wedding asking if I could take portraits sometime on their wedding day for them to remember it by.  It seemed like the perfect opportunity.  For quite some time now I have been inspired to photograph a wedding in its entirety in black and white, entirely documentary. I wanted more than anything to be able to do this for a couple who would appreciate the photography. It could not have happened more perfectly.

Black and white images are a passion of mine.  To me they invoke so much greater an emotional response. When the colour element is removed, the shape, the light and shadows, the lines all become so much greater of supporting characters in the frame. I am beyond delighted to share this post.

I would embrace the opportunity in the future to photograph a wedding in black and white. If this is something you may be interested please contact me and I would be happy to talk with you about it.

Thank you for looking. I would love to hear from you in the comments.
