Dawn and Mike Spring Wedding

This wedding. Where do I even begin? It was truly one of the most memorable and beloved weddings of my photography career so far!

The Kamloops-based bride and groom celebrated their wedding in May at The Old Clayburn Village Church. The ceremony was followed by a chic and elegant party at the Best Western Plus Regency Inn

The part that really stood out to me was not that it was a stylish, well put together wedding, but that from beginning to end, it was all about the people and relationships. Authentic hospitality and happiness were everywhere.  Big smiles, tearful laughter, clinking glasses and so many full hearts. 

Honestly, the whole wedding day was a beautiful lesson to me. It taught me despite whatever you plan for your wedding day, it's really the people that you surround yourself with that make the day special! Looking back at this wedding, I can’t imagine it being any more perfect.

Also, spot the photos below of Dawn and Mike having a little food fight after cutting their wedding cake. By far one of my favorite moments of the day.

Mackenzie and Nick Engagement Session

Photography Mackenzie and Nick's was an absolute blast! These two are so fun, sweet, and gorgeous to boot that it was hard to not photograph them all day long! Mackenzie and Nick knew they wanted to incorporate spring flowers and modern architecture into their engagement session and Coal Harbour provided the perfect setting. The session started out beautiful but then the sun started to set, giving it an overall warmer feel. I can't wait for their beautiful wedding this August!

Caitlin and Noah Couple Session

This was my forth time photographing Noah and Caitlin and it was an absolute pleasure as always! I've known Caitlin practically my entire life and I always look forward to being able to catch up! 

My goal for Caitlin and Noah’s photo shoot was to incorporate a mixture of Spring flowers and modern architecture. We started the session right next to the UBC Health Clinic, where a beautiful row of trees had just started to bloom. We then walked across campus and made multiple stops along the way! The final location I choose for them was Ponderosa. Ponderosa is a brand new residence building, that looks more like a 5 star hotel then a student housing! The mixture of modern architecture and stained wood was so uniquely Canadian and photogenic - I loved it!

I also did a little experimenting during Caitlin and Noah’s session. By putting a glass prism in front of my lens, I was able to create colourful lens flares! I loved the fun and life it gave to the images, I think it complimented Noah and Caitlin perfectly!

Janae and Eric

I am so blessed to have photographed and met Eric and Janae!  This newly married couple galavanted around UBC with me for their maternity session all the way until sundown.

I think the beautiful architecture and nature of UBC is what makes it one of the best places to take photos in Vancouver! I think it perfectly complemented Eric and Janae beautiful love for one another!

We had an absolute blast and it was so fun getting to know them. Thank you, Janae and Eric, for sharing this special moment in your lives with me and having me for your maternity photos! Congratulations to you both!
