Brodie Frehlich Wedding Photography | Smithers, BC | Kaila & Josh

The clouds filled the valley that mid-July day and cut the harsh afternoon light that had threatened the day before. Kaila and Josh grew up in the Bulkley Valley but have since moved south. I also grew up there before moving south and was delighted to make the trip up to photograph their wedding.

I joined Kaila, her bridesmaids, and a few other close friends that morning at the cozy Stonesthrow Guesthouse.BrodieFrehlich_201507_Kaila&Josh_web03
