Most of the weddings I photograph are within the Comox Valley area. When I was asked to photograph Laura & Evan’s wedding in Tofino, I was thrilled about a west coast adventure! I’ve been to Tofino many times, most for personal but a few for work. This trip was different then any other though. The beauty and love that envelop these two was met with an intimate ceremony at secret cove, known as Shell Beach. The Wickaninnish Inn keeps this little secret just for special occasions. The beach is well named. Teeny little bits of broken shell and rounded coloured stones enrich the shoreline and fade out just as you come around the corner to a large nook, stacked with driftwood. The private cove gave opportunity for a small escape from the wedding guests and allowed Laura & Evan some quiet time to soak each other in. And even with the little bit of rain that trickled down during their portraits, the mood remained soft and loving. Laura and Evan are the sweetest couple you’ll ever meet. And when I look back at their wedding images I feel the romance and pure love between them.
