Shane and Denille’s Wedding part 1

A couple of weeks ago we had the immense pleasure of photographing the beautiful wedding of our friends, Shane and Denille, in CUBA! We spent an awesome week in Varadero (more photos from Cuba to come) and the actual wedding day was spectacular!  These two people are amazing and surrounded by so much love; they had 68 people at their destination wedding! The wedding was held at the Iberostar Varadero resort.  We hope you like the photos!

Tofino

Mitch and I got out of the city to enjoy two incredible nights in Tofino!  We stayed at the Brimar B&B; our dear friends, Laura and Bryan gifted us a stay at this amazing oasis!  It was really nice to take some time off work, take some nice long walks on the beach, drink wine, and cuddle by the fire.  We had a fantastic clichéd romantic getaway – it was splendid!  We snapped some photos during the trip – enjoy!

Here are some shots on the ferry ride to the island.

Driving Home

After a lovely and long drive (8000 km) we were finally glad to be returning home to Vancouver.  Here are some shots of our last legs of the prairies.  We both would love to go on another road trip across Canada and the US when we aren’t on such a tight timeline can take the time to photograph everything that catches our eye!

Family Car Rally

Part of the family reunion was a car rally that Mitch’s uncle, Don, organized.  It was a really great day; we saw the church Mitch’s great grandparent’s were married in, the church that his grandparent’s were married in, the home where the eight Stookey siblings grew up together, the farm that the Stookey kids worked at, some family grave sites, and much more.  I had a fantastic time seeing the country side, small towns, and hearing all of the fantastic stories!  Here are just a couple photos from that day.

Mid West Storms

During our time in Illinois we were lucky to see some amazing lightning and thunder storms!  Vancouver very rarely gets storms like this and it was fun and exciting to grab our cameras and go grab some shots.

On the Road

For our first day driving down to St. Louis, we left Saskatoon at 5:00 am.  We crossed the border at Fortuna, North Dakota and there was only 1 other car there at the time, so no need for Nexus passes there.  We stopped for lunch in Williston where it is practically California Gold Rush with all the oil, and there were tons of new “homes” sprawling out in every direction.  We talked to a few guys in town who said some of the workers are “hot bunking”, where they share a bed with another person who has an opposite 12 hour shift, so while 1 guy is working, the other is sleeping in the bed.  The town looked as though it was bursting at the seams with how many people were there.  Finally, we checked into our hotel in Hill City, South Dakota 15 hours later and we finished off the night with a visit to Mount Rushmore.
