2017 is coming to a close & on this shortest day of the year (happy solstice!), i thought i would take a few moments to reflect on some of the love & wonder i’ve been working on this fall season.
however you celebrate, wishing you & yours a happy holiday season. And a sweet slide back into the light & wonder of a new year.
here’s to 2018!View full post »
i’m just back from vancouver. From attending the refresh workshop with the oh-so-talented jennifer moher & hugh whitaker as part of the incredible arc conference. 4 days of inspiration, creativity, heart-opening connections, laughter, new friendships, great food, great music & a dip back into all i love about photography & my place in it. SO good. For the workshop, jen & hugh (who are humans-extraordinaire, no exaggeration) hired 2 of the sweetest people to model for aView full post »

oh, hot summer sunshine. Oh, sweet amazing people in love. Oh, big, wonderful international tribe of family & friends. Oh, the beauty of lynn headwaters regional park & queen elizabeth park. Oh, the spectacular heights & wonder of grouse mountain. Oh, daisy & adam & their most tender & fun walk into marriage…
there was so much laughter, so much caring, so many wide open hearts. There was a tradition where the groom hadView full post »
i had such a blast stepping out of my island environment & photographing heather & luke on burnaby mountain in vancouver – an amazing backdrop for their engagement photos. And such a great choice… they met there at simon fraser university as undergrads, fell in love & have been wandering together through med school & beyond ever since. And i couldn’t be more excited about their late summer wedding at the gorgeous black rock resort in ucluelet.

meet julia & steve & their oh-so-delightful fur friend maggie. It has been said you can tell a lot about people by their pets. And if that’s true, julia & steve are exceptionally smart, fast, a little silly, full of energy, spirited, well groomed, gorgeous & as sweet as can be. I don’t know if dogs can be funny but julia & steve are that, too. It was an awesome way to spend an afternoon in vancouver… hearing about their story, their summer wedding dayView full post »

i’ve done this every year for the last few years… taken the time, early in the new year, to look back through the weddings i photographed the year before. And what strikes me most, year after year, is how absolutely grateful i am to the people who trust me to capture their wedding day in photographs. Who open their hearts & share their love & anticipation, kindness & caring, their friends & family, great food, fantastic dance moves, hilarious, heartfeltView full post »
cindy & joe gathered their closest family & friends at the gorgeous hycroft manor in vancouver to celebrate their love & their walk into marriage. And theirs is love worth celebrating. Deep & true, sweet, fun, & wonderfully honest. They are a joy to be around. Together they created amazing games for their posse to enjoy while we took family & wedding party photos & some moments with the 2 of them, caught up in all that wonder. There was jumbo jenga – that joeView full post »
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 »
getting to photograph cindy & joe is like winning the photo lottery. All good. They are fun & sweet & caring, madly in love, a complete joy to be around, creative, silly, up for anything, & did i mention madly in love? We started at iona park in richmond (a quiet hidden gem full of delights) & then joe wove us through vancouver just in time to capture the sun setting at whytecliffe park. Two fabulous locations, 2 different cities, a big fire under our butts & lots ofView full post »
a look back at some of the moments, many of the faces, the feelings, the promises, love, laughter & joy i was blessed to witness last year.
to each of the couples who invited me along & trusted me to capture your wedding story, thank you. I am so honoured & so much richer for having witnessed your walk into marriage. I am deeply, immensely grateful for the opportunity to be immersed in such days of delight, of love shared, of vows spoken, of hearts wide open with the wonder of itView full post »
shelby found me when keeley & chris’ wedding was featured on style-me-pretty canada. And i’m so glad she did! I had an amazing time journeying out to fort langley to photograph her walk into marriage with her man, erik. What an amazing couple. Truly… sweet, sweet, sweet. They’re bee keepers so i guess some of that honey just soaks right in. So much love, deep happiness & wonderful appreciation for one another. Theirs was a delight that was infectious to beView full post »
