Last weekend, we waiting in our cars with umbrellas cheering on the sun. I had to edit a few water droplets off at the beginning, but the day cleared up JUST in time, which was a relief because that greenhouse behind them doesn’t open to the public until April 1st! These two had a private […]

I'm so excited to kick the first wedding of 2023 off with these two. I have never met a bride that was so relaxed but also simultaneously so aware of the timeline! If all weddings were this smooth, I would be a happy photographer!

As a wedding photographer, I’ve been to a lot of weddings – like A LOT.  I always tell my couples to not feel shy to reach out to me if they need help finding other vendors.  It feels like this massive world of wedding, but there are great communities within it.  Vendors become friends, collaborate, […]

This is it, you guys! The final wedding of 2022. In a season with over 40 weddings (I’ve lost exact count), I would have to say we ended on a high note! These two were so sweet and caring, and I don’t think I’ve had a couple take better care of their vendors all year […]

It’s hard to believe the 2022 wedding season is coming to a close! As we wrap up into the warmest October I can ever remember, I’m loving going through these images of my 3rd-to-last wedding of the year. These two were so chill and lovely to work with. Their customized touches were so cute and […]

The days are getting shorter and the wedding photographer in me loves this! Early sunsets, cooler days, and it even got dark enough early enough to do some sparkler writing. It’s been a couple years since I did it and I’m amazed I got it in two tries AND it’s legible! Congrats to these two […]

I can’t believe wedding season is almost wrapping up for the year. Just 5 more weddings to go for me and I hope the weather keeps holding up. These cooler Fall weddings are my favourite, though. These two said their “I do’s” last weekend and put so much thought into all of the little details […]

We’ve had such a hot, dry Summer so far that waking up to a rainy day was surprising to all of us! While it made for a wet first look and an indoor ceremony, it also made for the most moody skies later on. Cheers to Judy and Mike on their intimate, heart-felt, laid back, […]

Where do I begin with this day. It was beautiful and so fun. When I first meet this couple for their engagement shoot back in the Spring, I thought they were going to be quiet, shy, pensive. Nope! They were a BLAST on their wedding day and their kids were a hilarious addition – you’ll […]

Every so often there is a couple that just makes my job SO easy. This was one of those times. It’s not that they were used to being in front of the camera, but more that they were just so in love and enamoured with each other that they kept acting like I didn’t even […]

You guys. This couple. This location. This day. Jackie and I had only spoken through email all the way up to her wedding. I don’t even think we had a phone call, so this was literally the first time I saw her. I knew it was a small, backyard wedding and a chill vibe. No […]

I have always loved the phrase “community over competition” and honestly, the photography community has been such an amazing support and network for me over the past decade, whether it’s people right next door or across the world. The best part of being in communities is we’re not alone and we have each other’s backs, […]

I was so excited to be a part of this couple's special day, especially being that I photographed her cousin's wedding 7 years ago, which was math that we sat and calculated and then realized that "wow, that was a really long time ago", haha. It was also extra fun that they had their reception [...]

A beautiful sunny day (before the heat wave hit), friends and family gathered around and incorporated into the ceremony, two people just SO DANG EXCITED to get married, absolutely hilarious speeches, and a rented convertible. All in all, a perfect wedding <3.

It’s not my place to share another’s personal story, but I’ve got to tell you, these two – especially the bride – are amazing, strong, resilient people and I was privileged to document and celebrate this special day with them. while shooting at noon in almost full sun is definitely a different vibe than I […]

Backyard weddings are probably my favourite. The vibe is so chill and the people are so relaxed. What struck me the most about these two, though, was how vulnerable they were with their emotions and how much their love for each other came through. There were tears all day long of the very best kind, […]

I know I talk about the weather a lot when I post on here but that’s because it’s truly a stressful factor when you live on the Coast! We went from pouring rain, to brilliant sunshine with storm clouds in the backdrop, to a beautifully golden afternoon. It’s always such a privilege to be the […]

What do you do when you’re out on a sunrise shoot and you suddenly see a missed call at 8:26am from a fellow wedding photographer? You give them a quick call back and ask what’s up that early on a Saturday morning! In this world of Covid, waking up with a fever and a sore […]

We had a whirlwind, 1-hr block of time together to capture all the things that needed to be remembered. The moments before. The first looks. The hugs. Those that could be present, and those who were present in memory. The emotion. The humour. And a few portraits in the lingering light. I can’t wait to […]

These two have planned and scheduled, re-planned and rescheduled, and RE-planned and REscheduled their wedding because of Covid over the past few years. I am SO happy they could finally have the party they wanted with friends and family surrounding them. If you look closely in the photos, you will also get to see my […]

Last weekend we played chicken with the rain all throughout this couple's special day. It started off foreboding but was holding off. However, when it was time to walk down the aisle it turned into a torrential downpour forcing everyone to grab a chair and move indoors. While I was super sad to not photograph [...]

I honestly don’t think I could have arranged a more beautiful wedding than these two did. After driving an hour out into the wilderness (I joke… kind of) we reached a little lakeside town full of B&B’s. The wedding took place in the backyard of a family friend and what an amazing backyard it was! […]

If you guys follow my IG Stories, this is also the wedding where my car died over an hour out and I had to take an emergency taxi the rest of the way, and then had the grandparents come as rescue me later that afternoon. Still worth it though!

I have shot weddings for a lot of years. I have literally lost count of how many I have done. But never have I ever seen two people more happy to get married (like actually). After postponing their wedding time and again with Covid, they finally sealed the deal last weekend! And their vows… you […]

Last weekend, my husband, myself, and my two oldest boys were the photographer, videographer, witnesses, and tiny human chaos at my sister-in-law’s wedding. On the groom’s side, his brother’s family bore witness and helped out in all the ways we couldn’t since their chaos is still baby-bump form ;). Covid has put a real wrench […]

If you’ve been following my blog for a bit, you will remember these two from THIS POST earlier in September where we climbed the cliffs together at Whytecliff Park in West Vancouver at sunset and got some gorgeous images!  What I didn’t mention in that post is that I was over 7 months pregnant at […]

I first met Olivia and Josh at a wedding show over a year ago and they were the FIRST couple to ever say we want to do engagement photos in the rain, so we waited for the stormiest day of the year last Fall and it was epic!  You can check out those photos HERE.  […]

In the midst of a record-breaking heat wave the weather did a 180 and was “almost” perfect for this couple’s wedding last weekend.  Nice and overcast and cool in the morning, with just a couple MASSIVE downpours right as the ceremony finished and right as the mid-day shoot wrapped up.  Thank you for your considerate […]

One of the perks in my current season of life, and with taking on limited weddings each Summer, is that I really get to be present and soak up each one.  I remember all too well the feeling of back-to-back-to-back and go-go-go.  I mean, don’t get me wrong, I thrived on the adrenaline and always […]

I first met Kimberly and Matt at a wedding show back in 2017, and did their engagement photos for them in the Fall of that year.  Their wedding was a ton of fun to shoot two weekends ago with me leading the photography team and my husband leading the videography.  I have so many favourites […]

When I first sat down and met with Pam and Shawn I could tell that they would be a wonderful couple to work with, and I was right!  Last Saturday, I jumped in the car, grabbed an iced coffee, turned on the radio, and started the beautiful drive out to Rowena’s Inn.  It was a […]

I have been looking forward to shooting Simona & Darius’ wedding since last Summer when they booked us.  They love the creative, outside-the-box shots, as do I!  Thus, when they scheduled a little night shoot in Gastown as a quick break during their reception, I was through the moon :).  We also did their engagement […]

Christy and Max tied the knot a couple of weeks ago up at Whonnock Lake in Maple Ridge, BC.  The bride got ready in her parents’ beautiful, rustic home which they built themselves many years ago and then drove over to Whonnock Lake Center for the ceremony, mid-day shoot, and reception.  Christy so hoped for […]

I knew these were “my people” when they said they would be zip-lining into their reception over a river (with a change of clothes on hand just in case!), and that they wanted a “first sword fight” in addition to a dance.  Jaclyn and Will are absolutely perfect for each other and were so cute […]

I love seeing “year in review” posts after the holidays so thought I would do one of my own, but it was hard to narrow down 2016 into one simple blog post.  We did so many great family shoots, engagements, weddings, newborns, and even a trip to Iceland!  Not to mention having our own little […]
