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. 


Cultus Lake Winter Wedding

Taylor and Sam

Taylor and I have been good friends for years, and I when she asked me to photograph her wedding I was thrilled! While most of the Lower Mainland was in standstill by a sudden and unexpected snowstorm, Taylor and her fiance Sam were fortunate to experience a winter wonderland for their wedding.  

One of my all time dreams was to photograph a snowy winter wedding, but I never thought that I would get the chance! When I first noticed the snowfall on Thursday morning, I was hopeful that it would stick around until the weekend. Luckily the snow stuck around and I got my wish!

Taylor had already selected the wedding ceremony location prior to the wedding day - the dock at Cultus Lake. However, once we arrived the unexpected snow changed those plans and I suggested that we moved to the nearby road as I thought it would capture the winter snowfall perfectly. They loved the idea and the resulting images! One of my favourite aspects of this location is how the snow covered trees framed the ceremony helping focus the viewer's attention on Taylor and Sam's first kiss as husband and wife. 

These wedding photographs are some of my favourites from the day, and it gives me great pleasure and honor to share them with you!
