I’ve known Sumiko from almost as far back as I can remember. We are both from Bella Coola – a town where everyone knows everyone. And everyone that knows this girl knows she has a heart of gold and is every bit as beautiful on the inside as on the outside. She wasn’t even going to hire a wedding photographer but her brother decided to hire me as his gift to her. I’m so glad it worked out and that I was there to be a part of this day. Their wedding day was the first day that I met Kevin but I can tell by the way that looks at Sumiko that this is going to be a love that lasts a lifetime. All the best to the both of you – you deserve every single happiness in this life!
Sumiko and Kevin opted to do a first look, which gave us more time for photos of just the two of them. I love the emotion that can be captured during a first look.
I wasn't scheduled to stay and take photos for the reception but I snuck into the venue before I left for the day to document some of the details. I loved the outdoorsy rustic feel of the details - especially the custom made wood slab for guests to sign their well wishes for the newlyweds.
I'll end with these two photos of the lovebirds because seriously - how cute are they??!!
