Laura & Adam |The Pinnacle Hotel | North Vancouver Wedding Photographer

There are certain people in this world who make you feel so comfortable, like you’ve been old friends for years.  Laura has that effect with everyone she comes into contact with.   Then there is Adam.  He is also one of the sweetest people I have ever met.  Seeing the two of them together … melts your heart.  There is so much love between them, it is evident just by the way they look at each other.

In the morning I met up with Laura and her daughter Hailey at Nasrin’s Salon where Mitra styled their hair and Dorota applied her makeup.  Watching Hailey’s expression while she watched her mother turn into a beautiful bride was so sweet to witness … she cracked me up quite a bit that day.

Is this the coolest eye-lash curler you’ve ever seen or what?!

While I was with the ladies … rock star Daniela Ciuffa was with the guys … Thanks D for all your help!

Because Adam & Laura are from Saskatchewan … they both opted to get ready at The Pinnacle Hotel at the Pier in North Vancouver … this is also where the ceremony & reception were.  Extremely beautiful hotel.

I loved all of Hailey’s little details too … she was so excited to get ready.

When Laura walked down the aisle and grabbed Adam’s hand … he just kept repeating over and over again … “you are sooooo beautiful” with tears in his eyes as he rubbed her hand!  It was such an amazing reaction and so darn touching!!!!  My fav to date!

Her father performed a lovely ceremony and there wasn’t a dry eye throughout … then after Laura & Adam exchanged rings … he surprised everyone by going over to Hailey and putting a ring on her finger as well.  I love these shots that Daniela captured!  Hailey didn’t stop staring at it for the rest of the ceremony :)

    first of all you find the perfect light for the bridal portraits. her skin is glowing. secondly i love the emotion of the last shot. there's something special about it. i know you can't see the bride's face, but i feel like i know what it is, you can just tell by the groom's reaction. it's a perfect capture. you rock.

    Hey Fran,

    The beautiful dresses are packed away, the flowers, cake and decorations are long gone and the venue has since hosted a few more weddings. Of course, we have the memories of a perfect day but even this can be expected to fade over time. That's why I am truly thankful that,with your skill and caring nature, you have gone beyond mere pictures...you have actually managed to capture the feeling of love and joy between Adam and Laura that we were privileged to witness. Now when we look at the pictures, it will be the feeling not just the images we remember forever. I am so thankful though that we chose you to photograph Laura and Adam's perfect day.

    Gratefully,
    Barb
