Ashley + Andreas | Cape Cod, MA

It was oh-so easy for us to fall in love with Ashley and Andreas’ wedding. For one thing, it had many similarities to our own wedding, including the exact same guest count. It also took place in one of our favorite locations, the Cape, which was the perfect midpoint for their family and friends who came from Germany and California. And, well, let’s just say it was not difficult to be captivated by their stunning good looks and their impecable taste. Ashley’s vintage Monique Lhuillier dress and sequined flapper-inspired number were both equally swoon-worthy, and even Daniel had to comment on Andreas’ handsome German features!

But I think that the best part of this wedding was the magic. On what was an otherwise rainy and gloomy weekend, we experienced one of the most sudden, unexpected, and beautiful sunsets we’ve ever seen, just as Ashley and Andreas were heading out for a post-ceremony row on the pond. It lasted exactly 13 minutes, just enough time for them to spend some quiet time together on the rowboat and for us to grab a few scene setting portraits. There is no other way to describe it, other than magical.

Nathalie + Ryan | Montreal, QC

You would think that planning not one but two separate wedding celebrations would make a bride and groom complete stress cases, but not Nathalie and Ryan. These two had their priorities all straightened out. They were excited to get married, eat good food, and party… and that’s exactly what they did.

Their two-day event began at Nathalie’s parents’ house, where they had their traditional Cambodian ceremony. Daniel and I love Cambodian traditions and we even incorporated one, the string ceremony, into our own wedding. I just love how the ceremony includes all of the most important people in the couple’s life, from having them primp and prep them (and “cut” Ryan’s non-existant hair), to whispering their wishes and advice. I also enjoy the several outfit changes that are involved, but that’s a different matter!

The second day honoured Ryan’s Filipino background with a church ceremony, followed by portraits in an enchanted forest, and, as promised, a rocking reception. With an exclusive menu, late night McDonald’s buffet, and Krispy Kreme donut spread on top of a dance party so good that even we eventually had to join in, we were truly spoiled with these guys. So spoiled, in fact, that even the next day they treated us to Montreal’s Oyster Fest where we feasted some more.

Nat and Ryan, thank you for an incredible weekend. You were a joy to photograph… and to dine with!

    Thank you for capturing every single cherished emotional moments over our special 2 days! We cant stop looking at the pictures, replaying the wedding in our head. Looking forward to what our new life together has to offer and perhaps the chance to have D+D capture future special moments as well. xoxo NR

  6. Maryke

    I’m amazed by the sharpness and colours in these photographs. As a fairly ‘new’ photographer I have tried and tried to achieve this lighting, but never get it this sharp. May I ask what camera/lens you use? Super inspired by all your photographs!!

Jackie + Kenny | Pebble Beach, CA

Jackie and Kenny’s destination wedding in Pebble Beach was the epitome of compromise; a perfect balance between these two individuals. They chose the location because Kenny is an avid golfer, but it also happens to be an incredibly picturesque spot, appealing to Jackie’s impeccable taste. Also evident throughout the day and night was Jackie’s love of Celine Dion (a Montrealer – hoot hoot!), whose music made regular special appearances. Jackie and the girls even played her Taking Chances world tour DVD not one, not two, but THREE times while they were getting ready!

This wedding also gave us the opportunity to work with the wonderful Debi Lilly, who came from Chicago to ensure that every detail was just right.

A big thank-you to Jackie, Kenny, Debi (and the bridesmaids who nick-named me Mila Kunis) for allowing us to share in this very special weekend.

    You describe the wedding as a balance and I think the single frame is exactly that. The balance between land and water. beautiful work as always.
