pemberton wedding photographer | lisa & justin

what a day. The day lisa & justin gathered with their fabulous family & friends, at the fantastically gorgeous old vineyard in pemberton, bc. Sometimes i have a hard time finding the words to describe a couple & their wedding day. How many times can i say ‘fabulous’ & ‘fantastic’ & ‘gorgeous’ without it starting to sound, well, silly. But, truth be told, those adjectives describe lisa & justin & their wedding day really,View full post »

claire & will’s wedding celebration took many turns, from a weekend-long bash to a far-away elopement. Until one day their plans settled, close to home, surrounded by their families (& 1 dear friend), who traveled from many corners of the world to come witness their day. And it was perfect. The closeness & intimacy they all share made the world feel small, connected, whole. And i was honoured & grateful to be welcomed so warmly, into the circle of love & support thatView full post »

Their vows were heartfelt & true, a lovely combination of very funny & very beautiful, a littleView full post »

Take two people, with their hearts wide open, push them to their limits of sleep deprivation & demand, & you have a knowing, an understanding, a pure, raw connection that is a blessing to witness. Thus are emmy & aaron. Forever changed by the wonders that are their beautiful daughters, finley & hazel. Dear friends, honest & brave & full of fun & so much caring. ItView full post »
