An extremely fun loving couple, Derek & Kristen. They wanted to make their pre-wedding photos meaningful and memorable, choosing to document their love moments at places has significance to them. The result- a soccer themed pre-wed at a gorgeous field where Derek coaches soccer. We also went to the church where the couple would swear to commit each other for the rest of their lives.
It was one of those days where the rain wouldn’t stop. When we started shooting at the field for the soccer themed pre-wed, it was still drizzling, but we’re thankful that the weather didn’t dampen the couple’s spirit, they were still so joyous and fun to shoot!
Wedding day surprise isn’t uncommon, however Kristen’s surprise for Derek was truly an unforgettable one, even for us. For sure, Derek wasn’t expecting to see a mascot in the early morning. His expression was true gold when he realised that Kristen wasn’t in the room in her bridal gown. Kristen was the mascot.
Casting aside her bride image, Kristen put on Leonardo (Ninja Turtle) mascot, held a box of leftover pizzas and waited for the right moment to catch her groom off guard (which she did very successfully haha!)
We understand that it can be quite hard to loosen up and relax on the actual wedding day with moments passing by so quickly, hence it’s really wonderful seeing the fun loving duo enjoying every moment of their big day. Derek & Kristen are probably also one of the first who ‘danced’ in after being officiated in Catholic church!
