Happy 2017! We wish all of you a year filled with much joy, hope & anticipation for an awesome year ahead! We kicked off 2017 with our first wedding of the year, photographing a vintage 1920s-inspired wedding at the beautiful Rosewood Hotel Georgia. If you're going to go vintage glam, this is definitely the perfect hotel for such a theme with all their art deco decor elements. We absolutely loved working with S&B and just fell in love with their funny, smart, and thoughtful personalities. What a way to remember January 1st 2017!
A throwback to one of the first destination weddings I photographed back in 2003. I was third shooter at probably the most epic wedding I've experienced and got to capture this adorable moment transpiring. Candid and cute make for timeless moments 😉 . This year marks my 15th year shooting wonderful moments like these and building authentic relationships with amazing people along the way. Feeling very grateful for it all🙏🏻.

Finally, after being away and getting over some very (very) bad jet lag I am happy to kick off our first 2016 blog post with one the most fun-loving & beautiful couples, Carolyn & Roger. For those who recall, Roger was my very first assistant when I started shooting weddings. And I have known both Carolyn & Roger for many years so it was such an honour for me to share in this important day with them:) The two-day wedding started off with a wedding ceremony at the Canadian Memorial Church followed by photos with the couple and their bridal party at UBC. Day two was the wedding reception held at the Royal Vancouver Yacht Club.
All six groomsmen received custom cufflinks, each catering to their personalities or interests. My personal favourites would have to be the replicate 20 cent coins from Hong Kong- so cute!
Following the ceremony we left for UBC for photos. UBC has some of the best locations for photos, with amazing architecture & backdrops. But most importantly, Carolyn & Roger chose UBC for their photos mostly for sentimental reasons, having met there and having spent a good chunk of their time there while in University.
Of course we couldn’t leave out the two most important people who stole the show at the ceremony…Roger’s nephew & Susie their dog:)Day Two found us on on the docks of the Royal Vancouver Yacht Club and we couldn’t have asked for a more glorious day! The hints
Day Two found us on on the docks of the Royal Vancouver Yacht Club and we couldn’t have asked for a more glorious day! The hints of nautical blue in the dresses & suits along with the stunning Westcoast mountains & water definitely added to our nautical look. We just loved it and even we came dressed in blue that day to blend in with the rest of the loveliness!

The evening was filled with lots of entertainment, from fun games on Rogers and then finishing off with Carolyn performing a song for Roger. She has such an incredible voice, so much so one of the staff at the Yacht Club even asked for her autograph!! All very fitting for these two incredibly talented and amazing people:) I couldn’t have been more thrilled to be there to capture all the fun moments. Congratulations you two!
