Melissa & Kevin's Cuban Wedding

What a wonderful trip I had over the past week documenting Melissa & Kevin’s wedding in Varadero, Cuba!  This part of the World holds some special memories for them and I was honoured to be asked to capture it.  It was so nice not only to photograph and film the wedding itself, but also to get to know everyone that came from Canada to attend their wedding over the course of the week.

We’re in the middle of preparing a video trailer to show at their Vancouver reception on April 4th and will post it here on our blog on Sunday, April 5th – so be sure to check back then!  In the meantime, below are just some of the photographs that we took in Havana and of course on their wedding day.

Thanks again for bringing me down to Cuba – I can’t wait to show the trailer to all your guests!


***Update – I “may” have just posted a 40-second teaser video of Melissa + Kevin walking through the streets of Havana on the way to their photo shoot (look under all the pictures below)!

Here’s what happens when you put the Canon 5DmkII on a Glidecam:

There are tears streaming down my face as I write this…Bruce thank-you so much for making our wedding come to life on film in such a beautiful manner. Words cannot express how thrilled and touched I am to see these photos and video. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

Good looking pictures, really! Color grading was superb!
On a glidecam it looked unbelievably steady, I thought it was a stedicam.
