Julie & Manny all the way from Kamloops - Whiterock BC Wedding Photographer

Julie and Manny contacted me to photograph their wedding in Kamloops, BC this coming August. With lots of planning and trips down to the lower mainland to pick up various wedding things and visiting family they fitted in an engagement session in at Whiterock, BC. I am so very excited to photograph their wedding this coming August!

Here are some of my favourite images from their session.

Bobbi & Scott | Engagement Photos at Royal Roads Victoria BC Wedding Photographer

I always ask the same question - How did you meet? And well, Bobbi and Scott most definitely were meant to be. Of all the places in the world, of all the ways to meet - they met online. With the online world flooded with people, they were meant to connect (heh)! We had a fun engagement session at Royal Roads University grounds in Victoria BC, and soaked up the sunlight on Canada Day. If you are familiar with the movie 'x-men' this was the school for 'gifted children' from the movie. Also a fairy tale castle for any princess which seemed suiting for Bobbi and Scott. 

We walked around the grounds and gardens enjoying the day, and finally went out to the docks/rowing yard on the Ocean water. Bobbi and Scott thought it would be fun to blow bubbles on the dock which led to some really fun photos. 

Stay tuned for their wedding this August on Vancouver Island.

Adrienne & Nathan's Sneak PeakWedding | Victoria, BC Wedding Photographer

They said their vows on the beautiful back terrace garden overlooking the Esquimalt ocean innlet in Victoria BC on July 2, 2011. More photos to come from that beautiful day, but for now a sneak peak! I had always wondered what a real life Cinderella would look like and I'm pretty sure it would be Adrienne! Adrienne and Nathan are one of the sweetest couples I had ever met, I felt truly blessed to be apart of their wedding day. I had this feeling as if I already knew them both were so much longer and beyond being their wedding photographer. Adrienne and Nathan even manage to make me shed a tear at the end of the night when she said she was so happy to have myself and Dayne there to capture the day! 

The way these two were together was so intoxicating to watch (and obviously photograph). The way Nathan looked at Adrienne, and the way she would touch or kiss him back said it all without words. Yet again the never ending proof that True-Love does exist. I felt like I was watching a fairytale unfold with these two the whole day. And I know if Adrienne's reading this she's probably having a little laugh because of a few 'bumps' in the road that switched up the day - but those now are funny, unique memories and apart of the story. More to come from their wedding, enjoy their sneak peak!

Thanks again!

I just loved this, it wasn't posed or anything -- just Nathan being a true gentlemen helping Adrienne down the stairs.

Mexico bound! | destination wedding photographer

I couldn't sleep the whole night, full of excitement and a little nervous. I was excited at all the possibilities and what the photos would be like, how the weather would be -- what could I do to be more creative. Those were the feelings I had when I photographed the very first wedding by myself -- and felt more recently the night before my brother Ric & his fiance Nicky's engagement photo session. I never thought I'd be photographing my brother's engagement photos nor a wedding! It's such an honour and that I was asked to take their photos. 

A while back I had a chance to photograph them in Victoria, and I'm not going to lie -- the nervous side of me showed up, along with some pressure. They did fantastic on their photo session -- and I got to see a new side of the two of them. Because I live on the mainland I find I do miss out on opportunities to hangout with family 1v1 so it was really nice to be able to just see them, close and passionate for their engagement photos. 

Today is our first day in Mexico, and I thought it would be fitting to post their engagement photo session on the blog. Congrats Ric & Nicky! I'm so excited for you both, and I had a new sister now!

(oh and just a little shout out Cancun Palace is amazing!!)

it was Ric & Nicky's 2nd year anniversary of living in their new home. Ric & Nicky built a brand new home together in Victoria.

Sorry Ric, I had to post this! Anyone who knows you -- knows your goofy streak this photo just proves it!
