Morning Surfing: Tofino Destination Wedding

Rebecca & Nick are getting married! (After they surf!)

The morning following Rebecca & Nick’s Tofino engagement session (right outside Middle Beach Lodge) was the start of their wedding day! Now, I haven’t photographed enough Tofino weddings to declare a “trend” (only two!) but here’s my inkling. Couples that choose Tofino for their destination wedding are low-key. You can’t choose Tofino and expect a sunny day. You’ll be disappointed. Tofino is a wet, overcast, damp, heavy climate. A true West Coast rainforest. You’re probably going to get a little soggy on your wedding day. And you’re going to be traipsing through forests and on beaches for photos. (That being said, none of this proved true for the actual wedding. It was the best weather day of the year-incredible. A few Vancouver-Islanders I’ve talked to have been to Tofino upwards of 30 times and seen weather like this once. Once!)

So, when Rebecca and Nick emailed and asked if I would be available to photograph a morning surf lesson with them and half of their guests – I wasn’t surprised. Of course, you crazy Tofino couples, of course. I loved it. Love the hard-working, up for anything, advenalt=””turous spirit of these two (They are both doctors! Been dating for 12 years, all throughout college, med school, residence!) and it was a blast capturing a different kind of “wedding morning.”

Enjoy!
