What a better way to start a new year of wedding photography, than to capture lasting wedding memories for a friend. When Rai first moved to Canada, she didn't know any English. But with sheer determaination, and the help of friends and her boyfriend, she has learned the language well and made a life for herself here. It is amazing to see how far she has come.
When I was asked to help document Rai and Ians wedding day, how could I refuse? Not only would I be able to celebrate their love, but I would be helping Rai start the immigration process so she can finally call herself a Canadian. And in true Canadian style, we braved the cold winter weather of January to take their photos by the lovely Lake Okanagan. Rai was a stunning, shivering bride and a trooper while we quickly snapped these photos. Thank goodness Ian was there to keep her warm!
