Jo and Karl - Banff Wedding Photographer

Jo and Karl are a couple New Zealander's that have been living in Calgary for 6 or so years. They are part of a close group of friends that we've been fortunate to share a great chapter of life with. Sadly they are moving back in the fall, but they wanted to have their wedding in Canadian Rockies. So a bunch of Kiwi's and a bunch of Canucks gathered in Banff for a memorable wedding.

Apparently this is a NZ beer. You know you're a redneck if you wear beer socks to your own wedding.

The ceremony was epic.

Meanwhile..... As a dad, this is what I usually get to do at gatherings like this when I'm not taking photos. Thanks Kyle.

During cocktails.



The reception was at the Juniper Hotel in Banff. Dinner was amazing and the speeches were just about perfect. I had planned on putting the camera away after the first dance, but the opportunity to photograph our friends drunk, while being slightly intoxicated myself was too much to pass up.

.... about 30 seconds later

The garter toss isn't established in New Zealand. There was a bit of confusion at the start, but Jo straightened things out.

Some guy in a kilt took this shot of me and my brother. It was tough growing up in a small town with a brother who was a scratch handicap golfer at 14 and then went on to win a couple of Memorial Cups in junior. I used to dread getting recognized in town. The conversation usually went something like "hey aren't you one of the Maudie boys"? "So are you the golfer or the hockey player?' I would look down at my feet, kick the dirt and say "neither" :(

Now I say ya, "neither, I'm the one with the full head of hair and the hot wife"!
