Lucas & Tina’s wedding was really different for me. Firstly, because they are great friends of mine, and secondly because I was only shooting part of the wedding. It was important to them that I was able to put the camera down and have fun & enjoy the party, so they hired the great folks at Green Tea Photography to photograph the reception. Lucas and Tina are a seriously awesome couple, some of my absolute favorite people to hang out with. They are a ton of fun, they don’t take anything any more seriously than they have to, and I tried to get a lot of that amazing spirit in their photos.
I met them at the R.A. Centre a little before the ceremony to do some family & bridal party photos, and it had to have been some of the craziest weather Ottawa saw in 2012. The skies would open up and bucket-down rain, then 5 minutes later it would be clear. Repeat. Repeat. With this unpredictable weather, and the party so nicely dressed, we didn’t venture farther than 20 feet from the entrance of the R.A. Centre…I think we still managed to get some great shots. The menacing skies in the “epic groomsmen” shot at the end actually add to the dramatic look quite well…gotta embrace whatever you’re given in this business.
