canadian rockies gothic

At Kate and Will's wedding last month, I was finally able to create a new version of "American Gothic"
by Grant Wood..... these newlyweds love the mountains and i wanted to incorporate that aspect of their
lives in this portrait.  So many couples rant about how they want the "candid - photojournalistic" look in
their weddings which is great but a planned, conceptualized shot involving props can be very powerful.
Please google "american gothic" to see the original... hope you all enjoy this image.  They are a fun, wonderful couple with great families and friends.... I wish you all the best climbing those mountains.
