Shamus + Seema: Sea to Sky I do's.

A few days after I confirmed shooting Shamus and Seema's Ucluelet wedding at Black Rock Ocean Front Resort Shamus emailed me asking if I wouldn't mind tagging along on a helicopter ride to an undecided beautiful location for photos. Ummmmm, I am pretty sure those are words every wedding photographer wants to read in emails from clients. Needless to say, I wrote back promptly with a hard yes. 

It was just the two of them and their little baby bump, making for an exceptionally intimate affair, with no guests and a very casual itinerary these two could focus solely on each other, the most important thing on your  wedding day.

After their heart felt vows we snapped a few photos around the stunning Black Rock property then blasted off to the airport where the whirly bird awaited. Seeing this beautiful place I call home from the air never ceases to amaze be, it really puts it's beauty and expansiveness into perspective. Tony, the pilot touched down on a flat chuck of rock that I would have never in a million years deemed suitable for a helicopter landing, but he made it look easy. We were surrounded by 360 degree views of mountains, glacial lakes, and pristine beauty, we scampered around the rocks taking full advantage of our limited time in this incredible place. Shamus and Seema's wedding day also just so happened to be my birthday and I couldn't think of a better way to spend my day then going for a helicopter ride, capturing images for the sweetest couple in a drop dead gorgeous location followed by an incredible dinner with friends.... I am one lucky lady.
