Ross & Rebecca, along with daughter Alyssa, were a joy to work with in Canada this past weekend.  Ross is a film landscape shooter and Rebecca is a wedding photographer and their wedding (and bridal party) was a blast!

 

Below is a highlight of the day and some of my favorite parts!

 

We shot a family session the day before the wedding at a stunning park that had some sick fall leaves and we shot film and digital for this session.
