This wedding was one of the most beautiful backyard weddings I’ve been able to photograph! Every little detail was thought of and even in the most intimate of settings, a large and loving community came together to usher Lyndsay and Kyle through to the next stage of their journey together.
When I first met Jordy + Zay, what struck me most was their willingness to share about themselves. I instantly felt connected them because they were so free and able to let me into their lives and their hearts. They shared with me their vision for their wedding day, their origin love story, and even some ideas on how to make their engagement session especially unique.
…Almost exactly a year later, I received a Facebook message from Brandon with talks of a proposal! I couldn’t believe it, I was so excited! It’s a pretty special thing to journey with someone through high school, get to know them and be able to be present to photograph the different milestones of their lives. We went to Green Timbers again to catch the lovely fall colours and sunset hues and it was then and there that he put a ring on it. BOOM!
When we were playing around with ideas for J + K’s engagement session, a wintry snowy setting seemed to be the best option. You know all the fun options we have with snow, the potential for snowball fights was too irresistible to pass up! So we waited and waited around through November…December…January…you guys all know how Vancouver, BC winters are right? They are basically a mish-mash of rain, cloudy, freezing rain, wet snow, more clouds, more rain, some sun, and about 5.78 seconds of snow. That’s Vancouver for ya!
When these two first met at the car dealership they worked at, they were cordial with each other, you know the type of friendly that you sort of save for your coworkers? A nice friendly, platonic sort of feeling. But Cayman was interested in this lady that he was working with. It wasn’t until a full year later when Evonne was on her last day of working there that he mustered up the courage to ask her out, to which she answered “Sure!” (even to her own surprised!)
Zac and Kayla planned a beautiful wedding in September because they wanted to have all the beautiful fall colours be a part of their wedding day. Navy suits, maroon and blush pink dresses were all a part of this plan and on top of it all, they chose to have their wedding at the Secret Garden at Woodbridge Ponds in Abbotsford BC. Now if you have not yet been to this venue yet, let me tell you, the sheer beauty of the natural settings around this place is stunning! There are open fields, tree orchards, and mountains as far as the eye can see…
They were going to set the whole thing up and leave just before D + J made their appearance. When I arrived that Saturday, it was definitely decorated! There were so many personal details in the set up: a framed collage of D + J through the years, fairy lights that shone on the glittering gold of the cloth, rose petals scattered on a walkway to the platform…and even some champagne glass for some bubbly celebration for soon after the engagement! It was picture perfect…
Now Zsolt was a little sneaky when it came time for him to propose. He made sure that Alison booked off the first Saturday of September for a special surprise, he was going to take her wine touring! So knowing this, Alison was a little suspicious and thought that perhaps this was the day that he would propose.
When fall arrives in the lower mainland, we see a beautiful colour change in the leaves of the trees and bushes. Greens turns to beautiful yellows and vibrant reds, it’s no wonder that many families choose this time of year to get their family photos taken! I’ve had the privilege of knowing this particular family since 2012
Here in Vancouver, we usually have a rainy, rainy fall that’s wet and ucky…This year we had a beautiful sunny autumn and man, oh man did the leaves show their colours
Christina and Paul found in each other the perfect adventuring partner because they both love to travel the world and see all that it has to offer. In fact, when Christina contacted me over Facebook about their wedding, her profile picture had her sitting on a camel!
The time of year when all the gross teenagers come out and transform into beautiful high school graduates! I was so happy to have been able to capture Bill and Camille's prom photos and spent some time with them before their celebration at Queen Elizabeth Park.
We waited around for the blossoms to come and had planned the session for the end of April and crossed our fingers that the cherry blossoms would stick around, and luckily there were still many beautiful trees by the Rose Garden at Stanley Park.
Just popping by to share this ridiculously good looking and EXPECTING couple! Let me introduce to you, Kate and Steve; beautiful newlyweds and sports car enthusiasts. I went to high school with Kate and have known her since the tender age of 14 so when they shared the happy news, I was excited to offer them a maternity session to capture this spectacularly special time!
You know how some couples are extra cute and they have a box of suggestions that they add to for future dates and activities? Well Zac and Kayla are one of those couples and Zac had left a suggestion in the box for Kayla to find. And when she pulled out the suggestion it read "Marry me"...
All throughout their grade school years, they were more acquaintances than friends, but admiring each other from a distance. High school graduation come and went and it wasn't until years later that they reconnected over a beer at Central City Brewing...
In her first message to me, Corrie mentioned that they were having a "pop up wedding or elopement" and were inviting only the closest of their friends and family. What a fun exciting secret to be a part of!
Last year in May, I checked my email and found an inquiry in my inbox subject: Proposal photography for may 22. Thinesh told me that he was planning to propose to his girlfriend in Vancouver and wanted to know if I was available to take photos of the event. I WAS SO EXCITED! I love proposals and engagements so I was keen to say YES!
