So one of our photographers (Kevan, of Kevan and Duane from 6:8 Photography) emailed me the other day, to ask me about our plans for photography for the wedding day. He wanted to suggest a location that was spectacular, but needed ~ 35 minutes (and a 4x4) to reach. The pros were... amazing photos, totally different from our engagement pictures, oh, and did I mention spectacular shots?? The cons were... took a bit of time to drive to, which would cut back on the number of shots we got in Fernie, and we needed a 4x4 to get there. BUT, to these I would argue, Fernie is cute and all, but let's face it, we are there for the mountains, not the 1 street downtown. We got our engagement pics done all urban-ed up, so we really aren't concerned about getting any skyscrapers in our pictures (of course there aren't any anyways in Fernie). And is a 4x4 trek on your wedding day ever a con?? I say heck-no, let's crack a road-pop while we're at it!! (PS... road poppin in Western Canada is totally legit, although never legal!!)

Not bad right?? The only thing I posed to Kevan was my deep, undying love of wheat, and all things grass/fields/meadows... and he assured me that we would get our meadow shots!! He suggested we set-up our 'first-look' shots in a field (since we are doing our photos before the ceremony), and then go from there.
So, what do you all think?? Is the 30 minute drive worth it?? I think the beauty of the location speaks for itself, and since we have allotted a very generous 3 hours for photos, I think we should be ok... but would love to hear your thoughts on this one!! help!!
