Mark’s and Janaya’s wedding was the first wedding of the year 2017 and it was such a joy capturing this special day for the two of them. Back in September is when I first met Janaya and Mark at their engagement session for the first time. It was such a fun time capturing their engagement photos, and I love hearing their story on how they met for the first time at Pineridge camp. If you have ever met Janaya and Mark, you would know right away they are the perfect match for each other!! I love how Janaya and Mark are so full of energy, kindness and love. They both love God and it was such a joy getting to capture their beautiful love for each other on their big day!
When Janaya and Mark initially asked me to shoot their wedding near Kelowna at the Kopje Regional Park, I’ll admit I got really excited!! I have never been to Kelowna in my LIFE so I knew this was going to be a fun adventure! You could probably imagine me being a photographer I made several stops taking a photo every once in awhile. I love all the greenery surrounding this beautiful place on earth – The vineyards, orchards, gorgeous views, the clear water and the hills surrounding the okanagan area blew me away. Not to mention, Caitlyn and Keilah with Bloom and Ivy did such a FANTASTIC job on all the florals and details. And so did Jenna Jones Beauty with all the makeup!!
However although I occasionally obsess and get super excited over beautiful scenery, what I loved the most was getting to capture the love between Janaya and Mark on their special day. Their love for each other is so beautiful. It was also so sweet meeting their friends, family and everyone who was a part of making their day so special. Capturing the joy and love between Janaya and Mark was something something I’ll always cherish. It was truly an honored being a part this special day.
Janaya and Mark, it was a pleasure documenting this special day for you, and would like to send a huge congrats on your marriage!! I am so happy for you two!
