What happens when you have a Canadian national taekwondo champion for a bride and Canada’s best taekwondo coach as the groom? A pretty amazing wedding, that’s for sure! That’s what we found out when we shot Ivett and Shin’s wonderful winter wedding earlier this year and today… I am happy to share a few shots of the fun we had that day! Ivett competed in the 2004/2008 Summer Olympic games and also the 2011 Pan American Games where she won Canada’s first gold medal in the competition. Master Shin is Ivette’s coach as well and currently runs the very popular Tae Geuk Taekwondo in Port Moody.
You’ve probably seen their engagement session previously on our blog and man, these two must be fierce competitors in the studio because they carry their game faces… always! All kidding aside, they are they are great people and so great to work with. We started off the day in the Tri-Cities for the getting ready and heading over to Lafarge Lake for their first look, a few family/friend photos and start of their portrait session.
We then moved on to Grouse Mountain for more photos and then their ceremony and reception. The lovely couple really wanted to keep the formalities quick so that they and their guests can start the celebrating and partying as soon as possible! A wedding full of martial arts experts but all were ready to join in on the celebrations! Congratulations once again Ivette and Shin! Here’s to many happy years!
