My month leading up to Melissa and Dan’s wedding was pretty nuts. I was on an assignment half way around the world doing a commercial shoot in Shanghai and Vietnam...and was scheduled to come back a day before their wedding. Since I didn’t want any chance of missing this important day, my amazing travel advisor (aka Gi) booked the craziest itinerary back for me. I’m talking 3am departures, multiple stop over’s and being up for 20 hours all to create an extra day of buffer. Like I said, I did not want to miss this event. I personally think, the itinerary back could have been payback on Gi’s end for me leaving her with the kids.. JK.
So this was our first wedding for the 2017 season and it was a great one. Melissa and Dan are really fun and easy peoples… pretty entertaining to capture all day too. It’s also nice that I know Melissa brother and sister in-law and their adorable kids, which made this day even better. Some really cool parts about this wedding was that we lucked out with the weather. We got some of that perfectly misty snowfall which made for some awesome winter wedding pics. I also loved how we made a stop at Dan’s family restaurant (Spiga) and did a run and gun styled shoot there. As you’ll see in the pics, we also used De La Salle school as a photo location...which was a pimp spot.
I want to thank my friend Kevin C for shooting this wedding with me. I want to also thank my friend Rob and Jo for all their hospitality throughout the day. Last but not least, I sincerely need to thank to my friends Melissa and Dan for having us capture your amazing day. Hope you both had an amazing time in South Africa for your honeymoon, the pics looked awesome.
