Okanagan Wedding Photographer // Shareen & Lee

March 25, 2013

A bygone era of pure class.


Records and garden parties sought with impeccable taste. Stories to share about shaking hands with the person who handemade their shoes to fit, or the woman in who custom made their piñatas. Knowing the perfect hat and going out to find it for a wedding.

Yes, Shareen and Lee are a rare breed. The type of people who have a sense of timeless class that isn’t common. They probably have fantastic handwriting, but we didn’t get to know them that well to find out.

Their wedding was a special treat that we savoured from the morning when Shareen started getting ready in Penticton into the evening dancing at Linden Gardens, where Lee was spinning most of the records. The entire day was a meticulous, and at times it felt like we stumbled upon a ritzy garden party in the 1920s.

Weddings like this get us excited. They’re one of a kind indeed.

    Those backlit portraits are incredible. Those boys are hilarious. Also, the portraits over the water with the globe lights just before the piñata shots are stunning! I love it when a couple cares about the way their wedding looks. Makes such a difference.
