I have to say, today was one of my funnest weddings to date. It is so easy to work with clients (friends?) when they have a lot of their own energy and are naturally just fun. Not too mention the JP was a riot, it was easy to see he loves his job.
We flew out of Alpine Helicopters in Canmore early this morning only to be greeted on top of the East end of Grotto mountain by a nasty storm. It was looking like we would have 5 minutes to get the money shot so of course the pressure was on. We did get a little wet but the storm blew over and as overcast and windy as it was, everyone was having a good time.
Our JP was an ex-National Parks Warden named Rick Kunelius who is based in Banff. Great guy, Rick is very safety conscious and loads of fun while trying to keep the ceremony the way the clients want it. Rick works well with Alpine Helicopter, and I highly recommend anyone who is planning a Helli-wedding or taking a tour through the Bow-Valley check them both out.
Dez and Remi where awesome to work with. Dez couldn't keep her eyes off Remi (the only hard part about the portraits) and the both of them made the day more fun than just a session. The classic military couple though as Remi leaves soon for a tour in Afghanistan. I wish them all the best in their new life together!
