Vanja & Mladen's Wedding
I was so excited to hear from Vanja when she and her fiancee Mladen first became engaged. Vanja was one of those clients with whom I could tell right away via e-mail that we would have a great time working together!
I loved that for their engagement session, they wanted something a bit darker/moodier photographed in Downtown Kitchener – I was happy to oblige! We had tons of laughs as we strolled about downtown, and I love the images that we captured!
It was hard to believe when their wedding day rolled around – it always comes around so much faster than I expect. It was a gorgeous sunny June day with beautiful spring apple blossoms. We started the day photographing Vanja’s preparation with my secondary photographer David with Mladen at his home. As is tradition with Serbian weddings, Mladen’s side then proceeded to come to Vanja’s side and “barter” for the bride (and old tradition that is now a showy and hilarious spectacle as the men “barter” and the bride’s side demands more and more).
The group celebrated when Vanja’s side accepted, and we were off to Holy Transfiguration Monastery in Milton for the ceremony, followed by photography in a GORGEOUS courtyard at Milton City Hall (WOW!), and finally the reception at St. George’s Banquet Hall in Waterloo.
It was truly an incredible day and I am honoured to have spent it with this incredible couple!
