I typically begin a wedding day at around noon, when the bride is still getting ready. This is a key time for me to not only gather the detail photos, but to allow the bride and her wedding party to get used to being in front of my lens (and more or less pretending I'm not there!). It's quite rare that I book a wedding where I'm scheduled to show up just fifteen minutes before the ceremony but Dori and Matt are not my typical couple. Their love shone straight through any camera-related jitters and their beautiful wedding at the North Hatley Club went off without a hitch (well, just one 😉 ). Matt & Dori were true naturals in front of the camera and made my job very easy.
When we first chatted about the wedding in detail a few months ago, Dori told me that she had opted to skip over the traditional white gown in favour of a (gorgeous!) red cocktail dress. I was so intrigued by this idea, and seeing it in person against the beautiful backdrop of Lake Massawippi, I could not agree more with Dori's fashion decision. It was absolutely striking!
