sea breeze lodge fall wedding

sea breeze lodge fall wedding

stacie & adam love the outdoors. And their family & friends. And each other. So.Very.Deeply. And their decision to gather all of that together for their fall wedding at the beautiful sea breeze lodge on hornby island was as perfect as it gets. Everything was sweet & easy, gentle & fun & wonderfully funny. There were a lot of tears – heartfelt tears of the love shared, commitments made & the joy of all being together to celebrate the beginning of their new life as husband & wife.

they were nervous about having their photo taken… wondering if they’d look awkward in the pictures. All i witnessed was stacie & adam’s sincere joy & delight in being together, in having promised their lives to one another, to a future with more traveling, more adventures, certainly more fishing (with adam bringing home the big one… well, maybe even a little one will do), more time spent falling deeper in love. That’s what i see in the photos… stacie & adam & a slice of their beautiful love.

stacie & adam, thank you… for your willingness to be you, so fully, so openly. To allow me to tag along & capture a little of the love you share & a piece of your wedding day. Heaps of happiness to you both.

west coast wedding black rock resort

west coast wedding black rock resort

soon after love first hit alex & travis, travis went to work in ucluelet helping to build the new community centre there. And somewhere along the way, between the arrival of two sweet littles, a home bought & renovated, & travis’ work away from home, alex knew she wanted to go back to the west coast to get married. And so they did. At the gorgeous black rock resort. Just a 5 minute walk from the community centre where the foundation was laid at the beginning of their journey & where they danced for the first time as husband & wife. It was a sweet full circle.

the rains came, as they so often do on the west coast. And it held us all there. And made the day feel more intimate. And connected. All was as their lives are… full with family, 2 sweet kids, a tribe of close friends who have known them for almost always, an ease & steadiness. The sky lifted for a few brief minutes so we went out & played with their entourage & a few moments with just the two of them, in a place rich in their hearts. There was a lot of laughter ringing through the night, great speeches & stories shared, some fabulous dance moves.

alex & travis, it’s been a joy being a part of documenting your journey… from before your little family began, through births & family outings, to the wild west coast to capture your walk into marriage. Another chapter. I’m grateful for all you’ve shared with me along the way. Here’s to the unfolding of the journey ahead. Much love to you both. xo

All that anticipation, wonder, love & delight making it’s way through the heat of the day & into the warmth of the evening. I’m so entirely grateful to you both for sharing your day so fully, so openly, so warmly with me. Thank you for allowing me to be swept up in the sweetness of your love for one another & for your family & friends. My heart is all the fuller for it. My wish is for your love to deepen, your delight to grow & for all the joy you have within you to keep nourishing you & yours in all the years to come. So much happiness to you both.

fine art photo books are a wonderful way to re-tell the story of your wedding day in print. In the last couple of years, most of my wedding clients have chosen a package that comes with a fine art photo book. And for good reason…

these books are gorgeous. True lay-flat binding means there is no centre line crease & photos can be spread beautifully across both pages. The pages are thick & durable to last for generations to come. The print quality is amazing – vivid colours, crisp, bold & accurate. And the binding is fabulously crafted – wrapped in a beautiful broadcloth or classic leather (in a variety of colours) or beautiful photo-wrap covers. They come presented in a simple elegant box & are embossed with your names on the cover. Books start at 10″x10″ with 30-pages & can be upsized to include more pages or to 12″x12″. Here’s a look…

rockwater resort sunshine coast wedding

rockwater secret cove resort wedding

leila & todd were on the sunshine coast & cruised by the rockwater secret cove resort while a wedding was in process. They looked up at the beauty of that place & leila said to todd, let’s get married there. And so they did. The late summer sun shone hot & welcoming as their family & friends gathered for a weekend to celebrate these two fabulous people & the love they share. Everything was infused with open-hearted tenderness & a good dose of humour. It was one hell of a party, i have to say… the speeches were heartfelt & hilarious & told the story of leila & todd’s coming together, the arrival of their dear ava & their journey into marriage. We laughed & cried. And we danced. And danced. The love was as present as the summer sunshine, the clean ocean air, the laughter, hugs & happiness. It is my sincere hope that these photos hold a little of that wonder, for the years to come.

leila & todd, thank you. Thank you for having me (& my little family) along to document your most wondrous wedding day. Thank you for shared family & friends. For your warmth & openness. For the love & kindness you hold & radiate. Deepest happiness to you both.
