I am a total sucker for wedding portraits during sunset. There is something simply mesmerising about that golden hour glow. Being a Melross Farm wedding photographer, I always encourage my couples to venture to higher ground with me so that we can catch those sweet rays of light as they descend over the property. Karly & Jonathon were troopers, and despite the long grass and wet grounds from the weeks of rain preceding their wedding day, we climbed to create something truly magical together. Karly looked stunning in her lace Made With Love Bridal gown, and the team from Leaves & Linen did a stellar job styling The Barn on Melross for the festivities.
A few years ago, a hashtag movement called #momentsovermountains came into existence. Photographers and wedding industry alike were pushing for a move towards more candid forms of wedding day storytelling over staged photos in exotic locations. I could not agree more with the philosophy that wedding photography should focus on telling a natural and real story and include all the hidden and unnoticed moments, regardless of location. I certainly strive to do this with my work (and hope that it shows!). But, heck, if I’m given the opportunity to climb to gorgeous spots to create something special for my couples, I’m going to grab it with both hands. Let’s make some moments on top of those mountains that we never forget.
