Troy & Kim: 2nd Shooting for Perfect Moments Photography

On March 24th, I had the opportunity to start off the 2012 wedding season by second shooting for Anita Chapman of Perfect Moments Photography!   I always enjoy 2nd shooting and assisting other photographers... it takes off a bit of that stress that comes with being a primary shooter and you still get a chance to be creative and shoot at a wedding!

Make sure to visit Perfect Moment's website to see Kim and Troy's wedding!  Anita is a fantastic photographer... did you know she shot our wedding wayyyy back in 2007?!  At that time, photography was only a hobby for me and now, I've had the opportunity to 2nd shoot for Anita!  I didn't think back then that I would be shooting weddings one day! 

Kim & Troy's wedding day started off great with lots of sunshine!  I seriously doubt it's ever been that sunny and warm for a March wedding in BC before!  (Living in the greater Vancouver are, you can usually expect a lot of rain!)

I headed over to where the guys were getting ready (with another assistant, Hayley!).  The guys were a blast!  Super friendly and they even "acted out" some of the getting ready shots for us.  I don't think I've ever taken so many "getting ready" photos of guys before!  :)  Here's some shots of Troy getting ready with his groomsmen: Gordon, Noah and Jeremy.  
After everyone was suited up, Hayley and I headed over to First United Church in White Rock, BC for the wedding ceremony.  We were able to take some shots of the church and details before guests arrived.  Kim and her bridesmaids: Vanessa, Candice and Jasmine arrived at the church and the ceremony began!  I loved the purple bridesmaid dresses, the colour really "popped" in the sunshine. :)
After the ceremony, Anita worked her magic with the bride & groom and the wedding party at a couple different locations.  We headed off to White Rock Beach and then at Sendall Gardens in Langley, BC shortly before heading off to the wedding reception.   Here's a collection of shots I took throughout the afternoon while assisting Anita! 
The day ended off with Kim & Troy's wedding reception at Newlands Golf and Country Club.  I haven't had the chance to shoot at Newlands before, so it was neat to shoot at a new venue!  They have amazing glass walls and strands of lights were hung everywhere... Kim and Troy planned a gorgeous wedding with so many details!  
Thank you Anita for giving me the opportunity to second shoot for the day!  It was fantastic working for you again and thank you for all the tips and advice you gave throughout the day... you are AMAZING! :)
