We absolutely love shooting weddings for friends of our past couples! As we have grown each year we get to photograph weddings where we know the guests and/or bridal party more and more and it is SO freaking cool! So, we were super excited when Donna + Josh told us they found us through a past couple (Frances + Mike) and wanted us to be a part of their wedding day too! We had a good time working out all the details for their natural, glamorous, quirky, and epic engagement session and it was really fun exploring Los Angeles with these two. I mean there were floaties, surfboards, tromping through nature, cityscapes and glitter! How could we not have a great time!? :)
Welcome to the third installment in our series of scholastic articles about our neighbors to the North which we have lovingly titled: Canadian Couples and their Crazy Awesome Canuckery.
Allow us to bring you up to speed on the history of our extensive scientific research: We don’t remember exactly how it happened, but somehow a super awesome couple from Saskatoon, Saskatchewan (which, by the way, is SUPER fun to say so we would highly recommend looking for creative ways to fit that into your everyday vocabulary. You’re welcome.) found our work and decided to book us to shoot their Palm Springs wedding a few years ago. Since then, we have been booked by two other couples from Saskatoon to shoot their Palm Springs weddings.
In our last installment we discussed how our experience with Danya + Trevor unequivocally proved that the stereotype that Canadians are super nice is absolutely true. After further study of Tanya + Brett’s Palm Springs wedding a full year later, we are proud to report that our conclusion remains true. Our Canadian couples and all of their friends/family and other guests are some of the nicest people we have ever met and we genuinely believe that the only conclusion to be drawn is that Saskatoon is filled to the brim with the nicest people on the planet.
To summarize our findings, we had a great time shooting with Tanya + Brett and their friends/family at their small Palm Springs Wedding… and now we kind of want to live in Saskatoon. :)
What can we say about Abby and Avi? For one, their names sound remarkably similar, which makes posing a bit of an adventure. Their names sound especially similar when you are pronouncing Avi’s name wrong for half of the shoot (sorry Avi! For all 3 of you regular readers out there, it is pronounced ah-vee with the same “a” sound as you would use in the word “avocado,” not the “a” sound in the word “apple.” The more you know!).
Seriously though, we had a great time shooting with Abby, Avi and their pups, Zoe and James. They are a beautiful little family and we are super excited to be shooting their Maravilla Gardens wedding later this year! :)
Ok, so..we can’t decide on which gorgeous model/actress Teresa looks like…but these two should definitely have their own sitcom. It would be about a couple of crazy kids who love Disney, tea, and running for good causes while navigating this kooky thing we call life. We would call it Tea Cups and Jogging (brought to you by Disney? hint hint). It is a hit and you know it! They also had their first date on our (Marianne + Joe’s) wedding day..so we are all pretty much meant to be best friends. Oh yeah, and here are some photos. Enjoy!
