Tanja + Stephen: From Germany to Tofino

I got the inquiry to shoot Tanja and Stephen’s small Tofino wedding not much before the early June date. I had not planned on returning to work post baby till later in July but it turns out our little gal Noa is a superstar and I felt okay about shortening my self employed maternity leave. Coming back to work when you love your job as much as I do is easy, especially when your clients are just the loveliest humans around. Tanja, Stephen, their two adorable kids and best friends came all the way from Germany to Tofino to say their '“I do’s” on the furthest reaches of the west coast. They loved everything about the tiny coastal town and were completely unfazed, about the not warm temperatures, wind and rain that graced us with its presence on their wedding day….. actually they were stoked about it. After our photo session, they cracked a few beers from Tofino Brew Co. and ate their catered BBQ dinner at a beautifully set table outside on the beach, the weather broke in the evening and gave them a gorgeous sunset to wine and dine to.
