Simona and Darius were introduced to me as we shot her sister’s wedding earlier this Summer.  When we met for coffee for the first time afterwards, I knew that this couple was going to be a blast to photograph.  Everything they described fit exactly with the things that I loved, too.  Dramatic light.  Unique shots.  Environmental […]

Barnet Marine Park | Sunset Engagement Shoot

Aug 23 / 2016

Earlier this Spring, at the Tri-City Wedding Show, I met Jessica, and she won our free giveaway of an engagement shoot!  They chose one of my favourite locations – Deer Lake in Burnaby, BC.  Despite the crazy heat wave we have been having lately, we ventured out for some quick photos after they got off […]

Barnet Marine Park is one of my favourite locations.  Not only is it often overlooked providing more privacy than most of the local parks, but its diversity from forest paths to ocean views also never leaves me wanting.  I did a quick engagement shoot there for Mavis and Peter this past week and the weather […]

Rosa and Mitch were introduced to me by mutual friends, and I am so excited to capture their wedding this August – almost as excited as I was when they put two of my favourite words into one request: “Night shoot” and “Gastown”.  Well, technically that’s three words, but I can’t think of a combination […]

Nicole and Ricky first met camping one summer up at Golden Ears Provincial Park.  It seemed only fitting then that we do their engagement shoot in such a memorable location.  We arrived there one cool afternoon last weekend and hiked up to a little riverside, pebble beach.  This beach was hidden off the main path […]

Last weekend we met up with Herlaine and Ernan to do their engagement shoot on a beautiful night at Rocky Point Park in Port Moody.  I was already fully booked for weddings for the 2016 season, but after spending the evening with these two, I had to agree to do just one more.  They are fun […]

I first met Jill and David in my living room when we met over delicious treats to discuss shooting their wedding this September. They contacted me again shortly thereafter and asked to do an engagement shoot as well.  So last week, we met in Stanley Park on a rainy Friday evening to take their photos and […]

I started 2015 running a very small photography business as I already had a full-time job that took up 50+ hours of my week with the commute, and a part-time job every evening on top of that.   Whatever time was left over, I dedicated to photography.  I wanted to make a few extra dollars to […]

2015 Year In Review

Dec 21 / 2015

Yesterday, we headed out to do our last shoot before Christmas (which I can’t believe is this Friday already)!  Doing shoots during the winter on the Coast is always tricky because the weather is completely unpredictable and changes without any notice.  I was thinking we would need to postpone yet again, but then suddenly the […]

I love it when everything just comes together for a shoot.  Last weekend we had the perfect combination of beautiful weather, beautiful light, a beautiful location, and an absolutely gorgeous couple!  I’m so excited to shoot Andreea and Colin’s wedding next Spring.  But in the meantime, here are a few of my favourites from their […]

I met Melissa and Matt back at a wedding show in the Spring, and I could tell right away that they were a fun couple.  This was confirmed after having a coffee date with them and helping them organize their wedding a bit.  I think that meeting was 80% wedding planning and 20% photography chat, haha! […]

Laura and Alex are hard-core sports fans who happened to have season’s tickets to the Whitecaps directly across the aisle from each other.  First glances and then phone numbers were exchanged, and while there is some debate as to when their first “real date” was, they are now happily engaged and planning their wedding for next September. […]

I met Brenda a few years ago while working downtown, so I was delighted when she contacted me the other month telling me about her 10-year wedding anniversary coming up!  They decided that part of their celebration would be getting new photos taken and we set about deciding where and when.  During out chats, it […]

This weekend I had the pleasure of heading down to Granville Island to do an engagement shoot for Winetta and John who are getting married next Summer.  We timed it perfectly with the sunset and were rewarded by nice cool ocean breezes mixing with the warm, golden light.  People sometimes ask me what makes a […]

Nick and I met Priscilla and Bertrand through a referral from a friend, and we’re sure glad we did!  In a way, they kind of remind me of Nick and myself in how they interact and their personalities :).  We did their engagement shoot for them this past Friday and turned it around pretty quickly […]

Sunday night, Nick and I headed down to Rocky Point Park in Port Moody to do a quick engagement shoot for Riki and James who are getting married next August.  It was a location that meant a lot to them and their relationship, and it was great to hear the memories they shared about that place […]

We met Jennifer and Elijah at the Tri-Cities Wedding show back in March, and spent last Friday night doing an e-shoot with them.  This fun-loving, young couple were down for pretty much anything which made for an evening full of laughter as well as some great photos. We started off with a little bit of […]

This past weekend I did Zenith and Trevor’s engagement shoot.  We had record-breaking warm sunshine, a gorgeous location, and two people very much in love.  This was all followed up by a Starbucks date with my husband and board game plans with the couple for later on in the month.  (The best clients are the ones you […]

When my friend Clint first asked me if I wanted to second shoot an engagement session with him it seemed like an awesome idea.  Until I also got booked for a wedding the previous day.  I’m not a fan of back-to-back shoots on a weekend when I already work 5 days a week, plus evenings […]
