L & E Wedding | Abbotsford Wedding Photographer

Category : Weddings

I have shot weddings for a lot of years. I have literally lost count of how many I have done. But never have I ever seen two people more happy to get married (like actually). After postponing their wedding time and again with Covid, they finally sealed the deal last weekend! And their vows… you guys. I cried. Between my mask and hiding behind my camera I kept it together, but these two were amazing in every way. I’ll let the photos speak for themselves, though.

Haha, yes, my kiddos made it in. The grandparents swung them by for the ceremony as it was a family wedding, but they stayed up here because Covid.

Socially distanced as possible. Covid protocols required me to stitch together panorama images to get everyone in!

The bride’s maid of honour couldn’t come due to travel restrictions, but her house mates were an amazing wedding party for her.

Covid threw it’s best at them, but they didn’t let that stop them from having the happiest day of their lives <3

    Such great pictures. Great memories of Elizabeth and her wedding. From her mom thank you for your gift of pictures of her memories.

  2. Kathi Kopan

    Congratulations Liz and Eli.
    You are one of the most amazing and patient couples I know. I am so happy for you!

    Wow,! , gorgeous pictures. I watched the ceremony from Rothesay, NB where we met ELIZABETH when she was 4. At our church. At that age she was tuned into God, so it has been amazing to watch her journey unfold. I think her dad is wildly fond of his family and it shows through all of them. I think my favorite picture is the one where the veil is floating horizontally in the air, And I love the next 2 picture of ELIZABETH with Sandy and then with her forever man Eli. If this were on video my high lite was ELIZABETH singing to Eli. Her Danielle you get an E for excellence in motherhood!

    These pictures are phenomenal! I cried watching the live -stream of the wedding and cried again – being able to see up-close reactions and pictures not from the ceremony.

  6. Grandma and Grandpa Mackley

    I cried at your wedding, tears of JOY! Grandpa and I were very happy to witness you and Eli exchanging your wedding vows, so beautiful! This seems to be the way the LORD wanted it as He provided you with a picture perfect day! Your outdoor wedding was breathtakingly beautiful! This was the most beautiful of all your previous settings. May God continue to bless you our granddaughter and our new grandson! We love you dearly!

Hi! I’m Laura, a coffee-loving, outgoing introvert with a passion for motherhood and photography. This blog is an extension of who I am. I’m a mommy to three little boys, and I love to create and write. I’m also loud, tend to over share, and am a type-A personality in the extreme. I’m a little pensive and can be a lot sarcastic.  I believe that motherhood is something more than just to be survived! This is both a space where I share glimpses into my business and the photo shoots I do, and also my personal space to just write about whatever is on my heart. So grab a cup of coffee, come stay for a while and let’s get to know each other. 🙂
