“If I could tell the story in words, I wouldn’t need to lug around a camera.” -Lewis Hine
These words always run through my head when I’m attempting to describe a wedding day in our posts. Thank goodness that I don’t need to rely on my words alone to tell the story. But I’ll mention a few of my favourite things from Matt and Ingrid’s celebration – because they sure ticked a helluva lot of boxes. I loved that Ingrid got ready at home. And I loved her nervous giggles. She took an Uber to the ceremony and convinced the driver that she got dressed up as a bride just for fun. Matt, who isn’t Jewish, wore his Kippah with so much humility and joy. Their ceremony, at Roodebloem Studios, was intimate and personal. We had a good giggle at how strange & interesting it was to shoot a wedding ceremony on the infinity curve of a photography studio. We did a short, but sweet little portrait session in the streets of Woodstock. Matt and Ingrid were excited by the graffiti and the chance to run around the streets. The reception was held up in the clouds at The Pot Luck Club because they both love food and they wanted to spoil their guests. There was no formal seating plan and candles were the only decoration. It was dinner party. Matt and Ingrid snuck out onto the balcony at one point and none of their guests even noticed. Israeli folk dancing – lots of it. It’s wild.
We loved documenting this day for Matt and Ingrid. And I’m so glad I got to lug my camera around to tell a little part of their story.
