I don’t usually shoot weddings. But when Stefan and Sarah asked me to photograph their special day, I just couldn’t resist. I’m quite confident that Stefan is one of the kindest people on the planet. So when he told me he was engaged, I had no doubt that Sarah would be just as wonderful. Even at that, I might have underestimated them a little. This couple is truly charming and the opportunity to photograph their sunset wedding overlooking the Valley above Penticton was an honor. The skies were hazy that day, and just by coincidence it was harvest moon. Had they known, maybe Neil Young would have been singing their first dance. The full moon was difficult to photograph through the haze and is only barely visible in the last photo displayed here. They were both dressed in vintage fashion, a trend that many guests followed, and their smiles were so genuine I didn’t need to direct. Both being talented artists, Stefan and Sarah’s wedding featured some of the best local music available and an amazing buffet was provided mostly by friends and family who should seriously consider starting a catering company. I’m so happy for this amazing couple and the future they share.
“Because i’m still in love with you
I want to see you dance again
Because I’m still in love with you
On this harvest moon.” -Neil Young.
