Vivette is from London, Darren is from Nova Scotia and I’m from Newmarket and yet somehow Korea is our common denominator.
During our 4 years at the University of Western Ontario, where we roamed the same buildings and partied at the same places, never once did Vivette and I bump into each other. Instead we would meet in Korea. Viv was my partying/shopping/mountain climbing buddy and it always makes me laugh so hard thinking of the stories that go along with those adventures. When Darren and Viv met, I had already left Korea but I also happened to randomly be in Darren’s hometown of Antigonish, Nova Scotia. Now here we are, who knew we’d all eventually end up in the same place at the same time.
When I first started photographing weddings, I said I would never do a friend’s wedding. Well I broke that rule real early and when I do shoots like this, I realize how much I actually love photographing a friend. I love seeing my friends happy and these shoots are always more of a hang out then anything else. Vivette is awesome, Darren is kickass and I’m so happy and honoured to be photographing their wedding.
