Beth & Tim

The beautiful couple, Beth and Tim. Just Married! Saskatoon, Saskatchewan/ Feb. 15, 2014

Within an Anglican church boasting striking bone structure akin to their own, this beautiful woman married this handsome man on a crisp Saturday in mid February. Stunning midday Saskatoon light poured in through high windows like buckets of magic paint. Though I missed my connection and was late arriving to their ceremony, the timing felt rather comedic as I blasted through a side door in simple street clothes just as Tim and Beth were pronounced husband and wife! As they made their way down the aisle for the first time as a married couple, I whipped out my Kiev and began shooting like a crazed woman. It was terribly exciting to witness. My heart was whirring, my eyes filled with tears and my hands shook uncontrollably. I have never felt so overcome by relief to behold a wedding! My dear friend Liza is married. Due to an internal frenzy, majority of my shots from their wedding day err on the blurry side but I have come to embrace these very vibrations as sure sign of pride, friendship and deep love for two people who found their match in the other. The couple hired ridiculously talented photographer James Moes to capture their day (be sure to peruse his portfolio; the quality and context of his work inspires the budding wedding photographer in me), but these are the photos I felt free to capture as a guest at their beautiful, beautiful wedding. 

I hope you can feel the love, there was plenty to go around. 
Congratulations dear ones.
