Gayle&Justin

Galye & Justin’s wedding was such a pleasure to photograph. I always get excited to shoot at The Glades – the scenery, the chapel, the reception room…it all makes for magical photos. Throw into the mix an incredibly photogenic and absolutely devoted couple, and I am one happy photographer.

I asked Gayle to share a little of their love story, and here’s what she had to say:

“We met in med school. I had known Justin for a year and half as a friend before anything happened. I had thought he was quite loud and over-exuberant.. He was often the centre of attention, incredibly confident, friendly and passionate and always happy-quite different from my personality- and as much as I liked him, I had never thought that we might become more than just friends. Then one night when we were out and chatting away, Justin started to mumble strange things about how we obviously have something going but probably shouldn’t do anything about it right then. Very unusual and confusing so I smiled and made my excuses and left, thinking that the next day he might feel differently. It turns out that he didn’t. He turned up to my res room, sat on my bed and told me that he liked me. That he reeaally liked me, and maybe after mid year exams, we could go on a date.
I was blown away that he could be so forthright and confident and I immediately decided that I liked him too. After a few dates, I accidentally called him my boyfriend and after he had finished making fun of me, it was official!

There were two moments when I knew Justin was the person for me. The first moment was in the 2nd month we had been dating – so we didn’t know it was the rest of our lives, but we knew this was something special. We were in the car driving somewhere (I can’t remember where) and I said “it’s looks like there’s a bit of a traffic jam”. And then in unison we both said “Jaaaaaaam”. I don’t know why we both said it or how we said it at the same time, but we laughed and laughed and when we thought back to it about a year later, we decided that we were both the same brand of weird and that was moment we knew our weirdness was perfectly compatible,

The second moment was on a beach in Thailand at the full moon party. It was just us on holiday together and I suddenly burst into tears. Justin, feeling understandably perplexed, asked what the matter was, and I responded with “I want to marry you!”. And he laughed, as Justin does, and said that he wanted to marry me too.”

Aren’t they just the cutest? My favorite moment of their wedding day was after we wrapped up their creative shoot in the chapel and I told them to take a minute to themselves before joining everyone in the reception. I got to the back of the chapel and glanced over my shoulder to witness the sweetest kiss. Galye & Justin, I hope that you remember that moment alone in the chapel, freshly married and full of glee, and continue to treasure one another as I know you do. Thank you for the opportunity to photograph your wedding, it was a real honour.

And thank you, as always, to my second shooter Shannon.
