Gemma & Shawn’s West Vancouver Wedding

Gemma & Shawn had a beautiful summer day for their West Vancouver wedding. They had their ceremony on a gorgeous little beach around the corner from Gemma’s family home. It was wonderful to have the ceremony in a spot that meant so much to Gemma.  For their portrait session we took them to a few spots along the way to their reception at the Glen Eagles Golf Course. Shawn’s favourite part of the photo session was when we all were almost run over by a train!  Gemma had wanted to get photos on train tracks. Thank goodness we had just gotten her off the tracks and we had just started photographing the groomsmen when a train came barreling in. We had to run like crazy to get off the tracks in time. When we were all safe Roger turned to me and asked if I got a photo of us running. I so wish I had but at the time I was too busy saving my own skin. I don’t have the fearless constitution that James Nachtwey has.

Thank you, Gemma & Shawn, for a fabulous day. Congratulations!

Holly & Roger

Shawn made all the flies for the table numbers and Gemma’s dad made the coasters for the guests.
