WEDDING DATE: June 6th, 2015

PHOTOGRAPHY: Gary’s Lens Photography (garyslens.ca). “Gary was awesome! He asked a lot of questions, came to the rehearsal locations…During the actual ceremony, he was taking so many pictures yet we didn’t even notice he was there. Later, when he was doing the family photos, he was quick and efficient! When we took pictures with our bridal party, we had such a good time…he was great at controlling our crazy group. At the reception, he took a ton of great candid shots. We really enjoyed working with Gary and loved the pictures of the day. We think they reflect how much fun we had, and we’ve enjoyed sharing them with our friends and family.” – Emily & Colton
