Ray & Billy's Wedding
About a year ago, I received an inquiry from the lovely Rachel who had heard about me from a friend — and quickly realized that I had just photographed another one of her friend’s weddings!
We arranged to meet for coffee, and within minutes we discovered that we had SO much in common. For an hour we discussed everything except her and Billy’s upcoming wedding – university, our lives, feminism, politics…the list goes on! Her enthusiasm, sense of humour, and positivity was contagious, and I couldn’t help but get excited at the prospect of photographing their wedding.
This past July, Ray and Billy’s big day finally arrived! We met at Templin Gardens in Fergus, where I positioned Billy by the water to wait for Rachel’s arrival. The first look was followed by their formal photos at the Gardens, and at nearby property of one of their bridal party members. This beautiful farm had horses — so in her yellow rain boots, Ray and Billy had a photoshoot with them, too!
The ceremony took place at Lakeside Downtown in Guelph , followed by a few quick family photos. Bridal party photography took place at Riverside Park, where the entire bridal party boarded the carousel for a ride!
Ray and Billy’s reception was held at the Alma Community Centre, and their emotional first dance featured a beautiful song recorded by Ray herself, who is incredibly talented!
I am so happy to have met this hilarious, fun-loving couple, and am honoured to have been their photographer!
