What any absolutely amazing two weeks we've had. If you don't follow me (Mac) on twitter or instagram, then you might not know that we've spent the last two weeks in Perth WA Australia. We were down there shooting a wedding and extended the trip so we could have a little holiday time to celebrate the end of our crazy season. The wedding was breathtaking, we met some amazing people, ate some incredible food, and we can't wait to share more :) But that will have to wait... We've been so fortunate to be able to travel to some beautiful cities to capture weddings. One that truly stands out to us is Jamie + David's which was held in nearby in Victoria on Vancouver Island. Erin and I haven't been able to spend much time there but when we arrived we saw clearly why Jamie + David decided to hold the wedding Victoria. It's simply beautiful. Jamie and David are from Washington State but currently live in LA. When we first talked with them over Skype we instantly clicked - such a strong and instant connection with this couple. We were curious as to why they decided to hold their wedding in Victoria. They said that being from Washington, the pacific northwest held a special place in there hearts and coupled with their shared love of travel, they just knew that Victoria was the perfect spot. Family travelled from all over to see these two get hitched.
The day before the wedding we met up with Jamie and David for brunch at a rad little restaurant in Victoria called Jam Cafe (a-MA-zing!). We visited for a while, talked about our shared love of good music, and enjoyed great food. After hanging with these two and seeing how relaxed they were together, we knew this wedding was going to be something special. We took note of all these things and knew how important it would be in the telling of their story. Check out the film below to see what we mean…
Jamie and David thank you for allowing us into your lives and for being so warm and welcoming to us! We truly feel like we've been long time friends :) Can't wait to meet up again next time we're in LA!
We had an aboslute blast working with the amazing Ashley and Verlon of Dragonflight Photography! It's always a joy working alongside them. Also this was our first wedding with planner Brianne Makanani and we truly hope it's not the last. She is awesome!
