Part of my favourite part of a wedding is capturing all the little details.  A wedding is made up of hundreds of little details that a bride and groom potentially spend months, or possibly years, thinking about about.  Sadly many times these go unnoticed, or blend into the overall picture. It’s great to get photos of the details to include with the photos or in the album to tell the full story of the day.  Here’s my top five from last year (and maybe a bonus one or two).

Wedding dress in front of window in Harrison Hot Springs in Black and White

A hall, an amazing dress, and just the right light streaming in the window combined to show of all the texture and detail in this gorgeous wedding wedding dress.

Wedding high heels in front of wedding bouquet in Harrison Hot Springs

Simple photo, showing the bride’s shoes in front of the bouquet from a Harrison Hot Springs wedding.  I love the way the light fell behind them on the wall, giving that great warm glow.

Wedding ring close up on pillow at Harrison Hot Springs

Another simple photo of the wedding rings.  I arrange them on the pillow that the adorable ring bearer walked them down the isle on not long after.

Wedding groom close up on tie in Abbotsford BC

People can be details too!  This is Adam, or at least some of him.  We were at his house in Abbotsford while he and the best man were getting ready.  This was the calm before the couple of shots of scotch as we got ready to head out for the wedding formals.

Wedding bouquet in front of dance floor in Abbotsford

Last but not least I love how this is a a detail photo of the bride’s rustic looking bouquet (and cupcake, and drink), but still tells the story of the Abbotsford reception, dancing, fun, and the beautiful bride and her daughters dancing in the background.

Bonus Images

Ok, you know I can’t just share 5…. I’m just not built that way!

Hand made celtic wedding dress detail in Coquitlam BC

This is the hand made wedding dress that Trish wore for her wedding in Coquitlam.  Made by a friend especially for the wedding, and a work of art.

Wedding details - high heels in front of flowers and purple dresses in Coquitlam

High heels, bouquet, and the dresses in the background.  All of the getting ready for a wedding in one photo!

Wedding dress hanging in doorway in Port Moody BC

Last but not least, for some reason I’m just in love with this photo of Tara’s wedding dress hanging up.  It’s simple, beautiful and feels wonderfully innocent somehow.

So that’s the latest in the Top 5 series, next week…. Top 5 most fun photos!
