Marlo and Jarod are a fairly local couple by my standards, they’re from Vancouver where Marlo owns a Commercial Drive hair salon. They had their wedding at the Squamish Lil’wat Cultural Centre, which is kind of a new venue for weddings, but a really cool place. The native art in the great hall alone is worth checking out. Marlo and a few of the guests are hair stylists, so you can see her style change throughout the ceremony, as they I think they re-did it a couple of times through the day.
Getting ready at the Summit Lodge.
A quick self shot with one of the brides’s maids. Great tattoos!
Marlo’s dad sees her dress for the first time.
It was a rainy cold day, but it wasn’t getting anybody down.
We all headed over in a big party bus to Green Lake for some photos. There’s a great trail that runs along the lake shore and into the forest, and it’s one of my all time favourite locations.
I love the art in the SLCC. This is the front door, and it’s a solid carved sheet of cedar planking. Made for a beautiful photo background.
My friends at Whistler Cooks came in and catered the dinner that night at the SLCC. It’s such a unique space that I’m sure it’s going to be a new favourite of mine.
It was a really grey and rainy day, although we did get some sun that day, it really wasn’t enough to be really useful. For the backlit portrait of Marlo, I placed a light mounted in a softbox behind to her left to light up the veil (which was about six feet long, how cool is that?) and the side of her hair. It looks like some low sun, but it’s lit with flash.
