Colleen & Phil – Perfect Together – Kamloops Wedding Photographer

I dig weddings. They’re challenging. They’re exhausting. They’re beautiful.

I dig Colleen and Phil. They are perfect together.

She’s sweet-natured, gorgeous, gracious and graceful while he’s manly, handsome, humorous and unhurried.  Perfect together.

She ran a bit late with hair and makeup on their wedding day and he forgot the rings in his truck and had to run to get them just before the ceremony began. Neither of them stressed out about the ceremony starting late and both of them laughed heartily during their nuptials and throughout their pictures. Perfect together.

The day was filled with smoke from forest fires, but fitting for their Native Smudging ceremony. It was performed with sage smoke, meant to purify their bodies – mentally, spiritually, physically and emotionally –and carry prayers and well wishes up to the heavens to the Creator and the universe as the smoke rose to mingle with that of the fires. Perfect together.

The day – with its smoke and mishaps, its laughter and lateness, its love and chaos – and the couple and their friends and families…perfect together.

I loved her flowers and I’m not a flower person, at all. I snapped quite a few pics of these.

It’s hard to walk on the beach in heels, so Phil gave his lady a little help

This pic was all Andrew from David Andrew Photography’s idea, but I liked how it turned out. I would have never thought of this. He’s basically a wedding photography genius…:)

My favorite pic of Phil from the day. I snapped it before he was ready, but it’s just so genuine. He was telling me about how he and Colleen met. I think he had just finished saying, “Basically, she loved me from the moment she saw me…” 😉 JK Phil.

Token ring shot in the flowers because Colleen specifically requested ring shots with her flowers!

And my version of thinking “inside” the box!

Loved this sign that one of their guests had made as a gift

Thanks Colleen and Phil (and Heather and family) for allowing Andrew and I to be a part of such a special day. I wish you all enough…

  1. Hey Jo thank you for making everything beautiful for our day these photos are so awesome I can’t wait for the rest! You made everyone look like models it’s so neat thanks colleen

  2. Made everyone look like models? Did you even notice how good looking you all were? I had nothing to do with your gorgeousness! All I did was capture you doing what you do! I’m glad you like the sneak peaks. Can’t wait to hear what you think about all of them. I’m sure Andrew is anxious to hear too. He’s such an amazingly good photographer. (For those of you who would like to see Andrew’s work because he shot this wedding with me, check out http://www.davidandrew.ca)!
