Kortright Centre for Conservation
The first time I photographed at Kortright Centre for Conservation, I underestimated the sheer size of this site. I was lost in the woods, with a bride, in high heels, and a wedding gown finding the photo op locations. This time around I pre-scouted the area at Kortright Centre for Conservation. Something I haven’t done in years. So I downloaded a map and showed up two hours early on the wedding day. Honestly, two hours wasn’t enough. However, I was able to locate the key sites I wanted to capture and sorted out a semicoherent route to hit them all within my time frame. The session luckily did go over a lot smoother.
The day started out at the bride’s family home. Both bridal parties got ready onsite. Ladies upstairs, guys on the main floor, and the fur baby swapping between the two in order to get the most attention. The bridal party members did double as siblings and in-laws as well, which came in handy when doing formal photos.
Have you ever dreamt of trees slowly caressing the wind through streams of sunlight? If so, then you might have been picturing an exact scene from this wedding day. The weather report did originally predict rain and as such, I came overprepared with a collection of umbrellas in my car trunk. Yet it never rained. However it was surprisingly sunny for a fall wedding. Any spot of shade I could find, I utilized for photos. And with so many of their family members being older, I sorted through their photos pretty quick in order to give them some time to prepare for the civil ceremony
