Niagara Falls Elopement
I was so excited to shoot this Niagara Falls elopement (technically a vow renewal) as soon as Kathy emailed me. As a devoted lover of “The Office” I jumped at the chance to shoot a Niagara vow renewal under the falls – Jim + Pam forever. ❤️ I love The Office, it’s a soothing balm for all of life’s difficult times, sometimes I just want to watch it when I’m feeling stressed out, even though I’ve watched every episode a billion times.
The mist was so beautiful, we were on the Hornblower Cruise Lines and I had a the best time shooting the water falling down on Kathy, Matt and their two kids. The ceremony was relatively dry and after their kiss we approached the falls, the water was pouring down and they were having such a great time celebrating as a family. Very touching. I was under a garbage bag which I had taped very firmly around my lens on one of the HOTTEST days this summer. It was sweltering under that garbage bag, but totally worth it. After the falls my lens was just covered with water and I could barely see what I was shooting, but the solution worked for all the important moments. This was a really fun adventure. The less fun adventure came after with completely blowing out my tire while being stuck in a huge traffic jam in the Niagara region on the 407.
The crazy life of a wedding photographer, you know?
I would totally do this again in a heartbeat, I love all elopements/small quickly planned weddings, if you’re eloping reach out, I have special pricing for small weddings and elopements.
Matt & Kathy are from the states actually and made the drive up to Canada to celebrate being married 5 years, their plan is to renew their vows every 5 years. They are wedding photographers too, and it’s always a huge compliment when other photographers choose you to do their photos.
