On Saturday, June 30th Martin and Katrina tied the knot in front of God, their families, and their friends in a beautiful backyard wedding overlooking Lake Sundance in Calgary Alberta. I was so honored to be able to be apart of their special day seeing a childhood friend get married is honestly so surreal. I am incredibly happy for Martin and Katrina and wish them nothing but love, happiness, and blessings in their marriage.
Martin & Katrina first met in the airport on their way to Spain for a Torchbearers (aka Capernwray) Bible school called Rio Vida in Alicante. You can say that from there their love just took off. Get it? Airplane pun, nice.
Anyway, back to the wedding day, the girls got ready at Katrina's Mom's house and the guys got ready at the Wingate by Wyndham Calgary South Hotel.
Fun fact: Katrina actually wore her wedding shoes during their engagement session!
Can you tell that we have some Beatles fans? yes a pair of shoes came off, and yes a reference photo was used to get the posing correct. My favourite thing about these groomsmen shots is that they are so far from traditional, but they are absolutely perfect for Martin and his groomsmen.
a couple that prays together stays together. My favourite thing about Martin and Katrina's wedding was how it was centred around God.
the ceremony was beautiful, full of happy tears, laughter, and God. It over looked over Lake Sundance, giving a beautiful back drop.
How good does this cake look?!
Naturally we took full advantage of the dock, and golden hour. The lighting made the photos 10 times more dreamy and romantic. I mean just look at them!
this shot is probably one of my favourites from that day.
and then they started to dance. they were practicing for their first dance but techinally this was their first dance.
Martin & Katrina's day was absolutely beautiful and a dream to photograph, I hope you both are enjoying your month and a half long honeymoon!
