“We already got our wedding photos from Ray!
I just want to give mad props to, and highly recommend Ray Urner Photography. He’s not only insanely talented and creative, but he makes everyone feel comfortable being photographed, which is a big feat when so many feel awkward when someone is taking their picture. Everyone at our wedding loved him and his work speaks for itself!” – Iva
I was beyond excited to photograph the wedding. BEYOND. Why, you ask? Because I knew I’d get to ride in a HELICOPTER! (Never mind the face that I’ve known Iva for close to a decade. I mean, I guess that’s important, but… HELICOPTER!) I know I’m making a big deal about this, but it was my first time!
Iva and Kyle are big golf nuts, so it only made sense to get married at a golf course. Golden Eagle Golf Club in Pitt Meadows was a gorgeous spot to do it!
Right after the ceremony, we hopped into the Sky Helicopter, and it was off to Widgeon Lake to shoot the formals! (My favorite part of and wedding, BTW) Widgeon Lake is super cool because it’s ridiculously hard to access, so you’re pretty much guaranteed complete isolation. To get there the normal way, it’s an hour or so paddle up Widgeon Slough, THEN you hike! (And the upper portion of the trail has been compared to the Grouse Grind by many hikers) Yeah, with 30 pounds of camera gear on my back, I much prefer the 10 minute chopper ride!
And then back to the golf course for family photos, and of course, FOOD!!!!! The late night pizza was a pleasant surprise. Mmmm…. Carbs…..
CONGRATS Iva and Kyle, and thank you for having me be part of your big day!
