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 »

lisa’s very first emails made me smile. A lot. And i don’t think i stopped smiling once on their wedding day. Well, maybe a little, to cry, during their amazing ceremony, at lisa’s parents’ beautiful home on shawnigan lake. Together with their fabulous celebrant, barbara densmore, they crafted a wonderfully unique, completely fitting ceremony for their wedding day. Their vows were heartfelt & true, a lovely combination of very funny & very beautiful, a littleView full post »
caitlin & drew are a bit of magic. Truly. They have a spark, intelligence, grace & enthusiasm that is a little mesmerizing & a whole lot of fun to be swept up in. And so was their wedding day. Celebrated at the laid-back splendor of seabreeze lodge on hornby island, caitlin & drew & their crew filled the island with their joy & kindness, leaving trails of love & wonder like footprints behind them. As caitlin’s mom so beautifully said in her toast to the brideView 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 »
in some cultures it’s a blessing to have rain on your wedding day. I don’t know how much the rain had to do with it, but heidi & paul’s day was blessed, indeed. Blessed with rain, with their sweet family & amazing friends, with the delight of kids, with heaps of love & fun & great food, all tucked in a beautiful venue brought to vibrant life with heidi’s creative vision. And blessed with the promise of a life given to one another.
heidi & paul, itView full post »

lynne & jay wanted their photographs to capture the spirit of their wedding day – their love & joy of being together, of sharing their days with their little man henry, of having their dearest friends & family around them to celebrate their walk into marriage, of all the mingling & dancing & getting-to-know-one-another, the beauty of hornby island, the casual fabulousness of seabreeze lodge, the music of amani marimba & how they call us to move, the speeches thatView full post »
i was photographing a wedding last night & one of the guests said to me, “you must get tired of weddings, being at so many”. My answer was a very honest, “no, not ever”. Two reasons came to mind…
1. i believe in marriage. I love having the honour of witnessing & capturing a couple promising their lives to one another. Wedding days are easy days for those vows to be spoken & shared – a couple is deeply in love, either rather newly or, after yearsView full post »
sometimes i just love me a blurry photo…
or, in the words of henri cartier bresson, “sharpness is a bourgeois concept”.

crystal & nick created a wedding day that was an amazing reflection of their relationship, the love of their families, the support of their friends, their impeccable style, sense of humour & commitment to having a great time. And so they all did. A fantastic celebration. And one that was a true delight to document, from the sweet anticipation of getting ready to rocking it out on the dance floor…

i first met up with anne & heidi for their engagement/celebration session last may (you can see all the fun we had here). And because they live in ontario, & their wedding was set for this august, i’ve had to wait over a year to reconnect with them both in person. So worth the wait! All the ease & fun & love i experienced with them during their engagement, was out in full force on the day they walked together into marriage. It was such a sweet day – totally laidView 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 »

from the sublime to the ridiculous. And everything in between. Heart-wide-open love filled moments flowing into silliness & all the delight found between it all.
karen & james’ wedding day, at the fabulous tigh-na-mara resort, was incredible. A joyful ride filled with heaps of love, delight, happiness, tears, celebration & silliness.

amanda & jared walked into marriage, surrounded by their closest family & friends, with their uber-cute 2 year old son & a new baby on the way. Their day was as sweet as they are. Jared waited patiently for amanda to arrive (he’s used to it & she walked down the aisle to ‘waiting on a woman’) & their day unfolded with ease & a lot of laughter. These two know each other so well & the love they share was a joy to witness & be around.
