Kira & Edward (Shawnigan Lake Wedding Photography)

darshan-photography_0904Where do I begin with these two? Kira and Edward are two of my very favorite friends in the whole world—I was jumping up and down when they told me they were engaged! I wasn’t sure what I wanted more, to be the photographer, and get to document this magical mystical day, or to just be a participant, and not miss a single second of being present with all of my best friends, witnessing the union of these two very special souls.  Lucky for me, I got to do both. I took the reception off and let Alex do all the camera snapping while I danced up a crazy storm with this incredible community.
Kira and Edward had a dress-up theme to their wedding day. (which comes as no surprise to anyone that knows these two)! The theme was “come as your magical self.” Can you tell by the photos?
I hope this day was one of the best day of their lives—it was definitely one of the best days of my life !
