here’s to 2018!View full post »
maui hawaii destination wedding
it was june when i received an email from jessica & nik. They were at the end of 6 months of traveling, hanging out in the salt flats in bolivia & searching for a wedding photographer with intermittent internet (at best) & no power at all (for days). All great for chilling out at the end of a long journey & a little challenging for online searching. And over continents & countries, through the magic of the www, they came across myView full post »

it was the end of summer. The sun shone after a few days of rain. Everything was quenched & the afternoon glowed in magic light. The crown mansion in qualicum beach was the perfect setting for celia & chris’ wedding ceremony. Set in the shade at the edge of the forest & surrounded by gardens, we were steeped in the wonder of witnessing these two promise their lives to one another. They walked into their ceremony as celia brownrigg & chris mcguigan & walked out as mrView full post »
lisa’s very first emails made me smile. A lot. And i don’t think i stopped smiling once on their wedding day.

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