Renee & Ian, where to start? These two are just amazing, together and separately! They are both kind and loving and someone you just want to have on your side! It feels like forever ago that we met Renee, when she was a bridesmaids for a wedding we photographed back in 2014. One very cold day in February, -27 to be exact is the day we met Renee. I remember her telling us on that day that when she gets married that we are definitely going to be their wedding photographers.
Well it wasn’t too long after that, that we got a phone call from Renee wanting to set up a consultation to discuss Wedding Photography. From the moment we met Renee and Ian at our kitchen table, we knew that the 4 of us were a perfect fit and Renee and Ian booked us right then and there. Although there has been a few bumps a long the road…. Change of wedding date, just to name a few! We all stuck together and pushed through what we call “Life”. As I suspected, things would get better and everything would sort it self out. Not to say that every thing worked out as perfect as one would have wanted. But such is life and we really must take what life throws at us and deal with it to the best of our ability, which is definitely what these two did! Renee and Ian are absolutely amazing and I could not have imagined any part of their wedding differently than what it was!
I think sometimes people get caught up with trying to keep up with the Jones’ and needing to have everything that everyone else wants and impression everyone. But when it all comes down to it, what is important is what you want (the Bride and Groom), especially on a day that is supposed to be the most important day of your lives! This is exactly what Renee and Ian did, they planned their day for them and chose the things that were important to them and how they wanted to celebrate their special day. This day was perfect. I loved how they left 4 hours for photos between the ceremony and reception. This made our job easy, nothing was rushed or stressful and photos turned out lovely. We also got to go to a few different locations and we even got a quick stop in at Wendy’s! Instead of a formal dinner, the reception was set later in the evening which was super fun and casual, less stressful for everyone. Some amazing speeches, gorgeous cake and cupcakes, made by the cousin of the bride and an awesome evening lunch was served! This day was amazing and we cannot wait to see what life brings for Renee and Ian and we know we are going to see you guys again on all those special moments in life… pregnancy… childbirth… family photos and more!
