It has been a month since I photographed this wedding and it has been a crazy one!!! When my new cousin Jessica (Jess Harcombe Fleming Photography) asked for some help shooting this wedding in Victoria I was hesitant because it was 1 week before my own wedding and I wasn’t sure how organized and ready I was going to be by then! But I always like to help out family and it’s great to take a step back and watch how your colleagues work so I decided to say “what the heck?” and go for it. Jess lives in Alberta so I don’t often get to see her so it was also an excuse to hang out!
I met up with Doug and his groomsmen to hang out with them while they finished up the details and got handsome in their suits, while Jess hung out with Abby and the girls as they got ready. The day was threatening to rain and was spitting on and off all morning, but just as the bride was arriving the sun came out and it turned into a beautiful day with awesome cloud cover (for Victoria!). The wedding was held at the beautiful Church & State Winery in Brentwood Bay. I love this venue and have photographed here before but this was the first time I shot a ceremony held on the upper field overlooking the vineyard. It was beautiful! We explored the vineyards and the beautiful textures of the barn doors and through the walkways and cashed in on some beautiful glowing end of summer light!
Here are some of my favorite moments from the day:
