Earlier this month I had the opportunity to photograph Sarah and Joe’s wedding in Niagara on the Lake. Sarah contacted me a few months back and luckily it was the only summer date I had left open! We went over the details on the phone since her and Joe live pretty far away, and then the night before their wedding we finally met!
The two of them were awesome to work with! They’re both hilarious, nice and they take great pictures together! Also, when I asked them to take a funny wedding party photo, they delivered with probably my favourite silly wedding party picture I have ever shot!
Sarah and Joe’s day started off at White Oakes where they got ready. Sarah looked amazing in her wedding dress and Joe cleaned up quite nicely himself. They did a “first look” at White Oakes which was so much fun to shoot!
Afterwards Sarah, Joe, the wedding party and families took off to The Botanical Gardens in Niagara Falls to get most of the wedding pictures done before the ceremony. I love doing it this way because it allows your wedding to just flow naturally without a 2 or 3 hour gap in-between the ceremony and reception for pictures.
After about an hour we took off to shoot their ceremony at The Riverbend Inn & Vineyard in Niagara on the Lake. It’s such a nice spot for a late afternoon ceremony! Afterwards we grabbed Sarah and Joe for some more pictures of the two of them before heading back to White Oakes for their reception.
The rest of the night was filled with tonnes of laughs, great speeches and a beautiful first dance from the newly-weds.
