KARIYA PARK WEDDING | shirley + mike
Since they reside in the UK, we met Shirley and Mike through Skype. We planned everything through online correspondence, and didn’t even meet them in person until the very day we shot their wedding! In all fairness, they first saw us in action at Mira & Ken’s wedding, but we did not get to exchange pleasantries until we were ready to roll on their big day. Even as we were shooting the door games first thing that morning, we could see what a fun and adorkable couple they are.
We’ve been really blessed with couples who have been absolutely kind and generous, and Shirley and Mike were no exceptions. Their wedding party and families graciously put up with the cold and rain during the formals shoot, and they were never stressed out when not one but THREE other wedding parties descended on Kariya Park for photos! (You’d think our permit would reserve the park for at least an hour, but for whatever reason, that was not the case) Despite all the maneuvering and waiting we did in order to get background people out of our shot, they never complained! It makes all the difference in the world when we’re working with super patient couples, and we’re very grateful to have had the privilege of documenting Shirley and Mike’s big day.
Without further ado, here’s a look at Shirley and Mike’s Kariya Park wedding portraits and Chateau Le Jardin wedding reception!
