Cache Creek Wedding Photography // Leah & Rhett

October 5, 2010

Before hiring us to photograph his daughter’s wedding in Cache Creek, Ken had a few insightful questions.

Ken wanted to know whether “Jakob and Cole” did more then just take pictures together (we answered “no”), if we were comfortable with the drive north (we answered “yes”), if we could handle the heat of the Interior throughout the day (we answered “yes”), and other such details.

Questions answered, answers affirmed, and the date was set.

We knew two things at that point. The name of the bride’s father was Ken, and we were heading to Cache Creek (which is a four hour drive north of Vancouver).

So we showed up on his 100 acre plot not knowing the bride’s name, the groom’s name, what the venue would be like, how big the wedding would be, and all the details in between.

To be thrown amidst a western-inspired, do it yourself wedding in the +28°C heat of the Bonaparte completely unknowing of what to expect turned out to be a hell of an experience. We wouldn’t have changed a thing.

    I love the light in these photos. The photo of them kissing and the one of them walking after their wedding is awesome! Great work.

  18. Alan Hutchison Photography

    Fabulous work and great storytelling in the images - just that shot of the map at the beginning is so inspired and instantly sets the mood for this set. Wonderful Photojournalism work that ticks all the boxes - who what where when why and how.

    I'd like to buy a book of your wedding photos please, not simply to study and learn from them as wedding photos; they're always enthralling to look at just for what they are.

  20. Nathan Gilmer

    You have a really interesting color technique. I dig it a lot. Great shoot.

  21. Joshua Gull

    Dude, this wedding is ridiculous is a great way! Loving the dirt bike shots. Just epic all around.

  29. Amber Hughes

    Seriously seriously awesome wedding! Loved everything from the getting ready photos to the bike jumping over the groomsmen

  30. Jamie M Swanson

    The photos are ridiculously stunning. You already know that. But I was most taken by the bride's gorgeous bouquet. My most "favoritest" one I've ever seen, and I'm seriously jealous because it is what I wanted for my wedding and mine was nothing like it...

  31. suzanne

    Just when I thought it couldn't get any better... there were motorbikes. BOOM!

  32. Joakim

    Seriously, I have never seen a wedding session in on this level for years. You guys did an awesome work here.

  33. Greg Samborski

    Absolutely phenomenal wedding and photos. My wife and I scrolled though the event with the biggest of smiles, she even had tears. We recently had our wedding and she loved that their DIY flower designs were almost identical in concept to the ones she created - she dreams of being a florist. The men showing up on dirt-bikes (my favorite past time) got me all excited and we agreed this this will be the template for our Canadian wedding. Finally, you manged to capture the even so brilliantly, everything flowed, the light was amazing, no details were missed... on and on it goes. This was truly educational and inspirational for a guy passionate about taking pictures. This post made our day - thank you.
