Victoria + Darryl | Strawberry Hill Rustic Newfoundland Wedding
We’re waiting out a giant storm here in Newfoundland at the moment, so I’m going back to a super bright, warm and romantic day in July, starring Victoria and Darryl. I would love to clone Victoria, because that girl just GOT me. It wasn’t because she shared the same wedding venue, or that her style was so similar to mine but because she understood that to get those “pinterest worthy” shots; sometimes you need to make tiny sacrifices… like darting out in the middle of supper for a few sun drenched shots.
Daryl and Victoria were both so carefree, relaxed and fun to be around that we ended up shooting way into the night. I know it’s not possible for every bride to think about photos in every aspect of planning, but it seems some how Victoria did. From the table decor, to the willingness to go anywhere for the right shot or light, to giving me the free will to capture the wedding day as it was.
I always joke I’m an extended part of the bridal party, because I’m usually with you even more than your maids; and sometimes the Groom on your wedding day! It’s important to feel comfortable and relaxed, just like I’m one of the crowd; so that the shots can be as natural and candid as possible.
Of course I’ll give direction where direction is needed, but I really want you to be yourself! Your wacky, silly, offbeat, fun, ridiculous own self!
I ran up, between courses and whispered into Victoria’s ear: “the sun is setting” her and Darryl pushed back their chairs and dashed out of the tent with me. Sometimes, you gotta let your guests drink that extra glass of wine, between courses so you can get just another minute alone together. Much sun. Very pretty.
Jagerbombs and poutine are the recipe for ANY good wedding!!
