Lebanese Wedding Photography – Shantelle & Mathew

Lebanese Wedding Photography

We first met Shantelle and Mathew in the fall of 2013 when Shantelle’s sister Danielle got married. We fell in love with this family and were very excited when Shantelle and Mathew asked us to photograph their beautiful Lebanese wedding.

When Shantelle and Mathew started planning their own wedding, they knew that they wanted their wedding portraits to not only be beautiful, but also to reflect their fun and quirky side. It was a beautiful June morning when we met Shantelle at her family home, her mother and sister were right by her side as she got ready. At noon we started to hear the car horns, drums and singing coming from down the street. A crowd of family and friends followed Mathew up the street in a huge entourage of singing and dancing. The groom was welcomed into the bride’s home with open arms and many happy tears from her parents.

Mathew and Shantelle roared up to the Alberta Legislature building in a bright orange jeep for their wedding portrait session. The Legislature park was busy with summer activities, the perfect spot for some sweet and candid outdoor wedding portraits.

Congratulations again and thank you for inviting us to capture your special day!
