Orchard Road Presbyterian Church Wedding - Karen & Justin
When we first met Karen and Justin at our church group a couple years back, little did we know that we’d be shooting their wedding one day! They were just the most fun couple to shoot (unbelievably completely relaxed and chill the entire time!) and it was an unforgettable day spent with them. We’ll never forget all the attention they paid to the little details, from Karen’s amazing flying winged shoes, to Justin’s solid gold bowtie, to the coolest fold-out Where’s Waldo style wedding invitations, to the musical instruments for all the guests to play at dinner - a tribute to Karen’s musical background - she’s actually part of the band Tricks & Cider - check them out, they are really good!). This wedding just had their personality stamped all over it like none other and there was even a bus to take us all to the afterparty (when the day sadly had to came to an end...)!
Of course it didn’t hurt that we all had a common American-ish background (Justin spent a number of years in Berkeley and Karen in Boston) and that we also enjoyed eating peanut butter-slathered burgers at De Burg together. Not to mention having a common love for photography! I’ll never forget when Justin showed up one day with an old school medium format Mamiya 645 film camera with an instant film back - which he had bought just to set up an instant film photo booth at the wedding reception! During the days leading up to the wedding, we had a ton of fun with old school film cameras… and even turned our location scouting at Raffles Hotel into a film shootout!
Karen and Justin - thanks for being such great friends and having us be a part of your special day. It’s been amazing being part of your life journey over the past couple years through our church group and seeing you both now a happily married couple! We are so proud of you two!
Hope you enjoy these photos as much as we did making them for you.
