Jen & Warren . Brock House Vancouver Wedding.

Jen & Warren flew all the way from Winnipeg (as did most of their guests!) to celebrate their wedding here in Vancouver. They love the west coast and the ocean, so having the reception at the Brock House at Jericho Beach was the perfect fit. Such a fun day and it was an honor to document it. Many of my favorites telling their story -

Estefany & Dennis . Vancouver Wedding Photographer

Estefany & Dennis traveled from England to Vancouver to get married - with their family and friends here to celebrate, their oldest daughter as one of the bridesmaids and their two younger sons as ring bearers - it was time to tie the knot! There's something to be said about weddings that are really just about celebrating love and family. Nothing too extravagant but so perfect and focused on each other and what's important to them and their family. Because at the core of it, isn't that what a wedding should be about.
A handful of images from their day -

Carine & Jay . Stanley Park Pavilion and Kirin Restaurant

Carine & Jay got married this past weekend at the Stanley Park Pavilion and later their reception at the Kirin Restaurant. I loved all the traditional aspects that they incorporated from their cultures into the day - tea ceremony, the dragon dance, the 10 course traditional Chinese dinner! It was a pretty amazing day! And although I had *planned* on only blogging a handful, it kind of got out of hand while picking out my favorites - so a fairly large post. 
Congratulations again you two - it really was an honor to document your day!

Nicole & Sean . UBC Botanical Garden Wedding Preview.

Nicole & Sean got married last weekend at the UBC Botanical Garden's here in Vancouver. It was my first time shooting there and it was beautiful - so many amazing vendors making this one happen (Olivia from Dreamworks, Florista, and All Dolled Up to just name a few!) These two sure know how to throw a party! Many more to come, but for now a preview of images from their day. 

Ashley & James . A family farm wedding preview.

Ashley & James got married this past weekend in their backyard surrounded by all of their closest friends and family. Getting ready together (which I loved!), barbershops set up in the hotel room (a surprise from Ashley to James), live bands, amazing food, the cutest flower girls, gorgeous decor and set up by Trend Decor and planning by Emma McCormick (more of those images later!) - it was such a fantastic day. A little bit bigger of a preview than normal, but it was hard to narrow it down! So many more to come later.
Congratulations once again you two - it was such an honor to document your day for you. xo

Jen & Warren . Brock House Wedding Photography Preview.

Jen & Warren flew all the way from Winnipeg (as did most of their guests!) to celebrate their wedding here in Vancouver. The ceremony at St.Patrick's Parish and the reception at the Brock House. Such a fun day and I can not wait to go through all their photos! For now a small handful I picked out for a preview. Congratulations you two! I was so honored to document it for you! xo 

engagement

Nicole & Sean . Lighthouse Park Engagement

These two had their engagement session several weeks back at Lighthouse Park in Vancouver. Admittedly, Lighthouse Park may be one of the more popular spots for engagement photos so on the drive out I was trying to think of some different things we could do or little spots we could find that weren't the typical lighthouse park images. BUT then the clouds and the sky decided to just hand us this amazing little gift. Seriously, the sky was a like a painting that night. And as it was apparent it was only going to get better after the sun went down, I made sure these two were ok hiking back in the dark because we were going to stay for awhile after the sun had set. So so happy to have hiked out with them that night. And even more so, looking forward to photographing their wedding next month. 
Many of my favorites -

Jose & Matt . Sechelt Wedding Photography

The sweetest little ceremony on a beach in Sechelt - these two got married last weekend with their daughter and their closest friends and family watching. There's something about these little weddings that I just love so much - everyone helping out (Jose and her friends even making her own bouquet in the morning), a lot more intimate and bit less tradition to make it more personal. A handful of images as a preview with many more to come -

Meghann & Ian . UBC Boathouse . Vancouver Wedding Photographer

I first started chatting with Meghann about her wedding almost 2 years ago and I instantly knew it was going to be a good one. These two are the sweetest and have such a fun relationship.  From start to finish, I loved documenting this wedding. There are so many favorite candids and moments from their day so excuse the supersize blog post, but seriously - it was amazing! 
Thank you so much to Tanja for 2nd shooting with me and to all the awesome vendors for making this day so great - UBC Boathouse, Jenna of Revel Events and Fancy Face Makeup.
