Paisley & Matt Shine right back where they met – Courtenay Photographer


Paisley and Matt met at her high school grad campout at Comox Lake. He came right up to her, introduced himself, impressed her with his knowledge about trees and this kicked off a year of incredible friendship. When Paisley left to go travelling, they continued to talk daily and at length. After losing internet, and subsequent daily Skype calls with Matt, Paisley was overcome with missing him. She cut her travels short, bought a plane ticket home and surprised him in his driveway. It wasn’t long after that these two realized they were meant for more than friendship. Eventually Matt proposed, on Christmas – and these two and their friends went about planning a phenomenal day to celebrate.

After they exchanged vows at the Fish and Game club, we headed to the spot on Comox Lake where they first met to take some photos. The feeling was pretty special to be adding another memory to this meaningful spot. Next up was a wild party where these two were surrounded by their incredible family and friends.

Paisley and Matt thank you for sharing this day with me, you were glowing!
