September, where did summer go? | Vancouver, Langley, Surrey, Abbotsford BC, Photographers

It seems like the summer just drifted off to quickly! The past couple of days have been rainy and cloudy its a true reminder of what the BC weather is like the rest of the year (I truly didn't mind forgetting for the last couple of months). Yesterday, while we went for breakfast, I found myself singing in my head "Rain, rain go away" and getting jealous at California photographers, who don't really even know what rain is. It's not that I don't like the rain, I just prefer awesome sunshine in a late summer days and being warm versus cold and wet-however for wedding photography rainy weather is the best weather. I was asked recently have I photographed in rainy weather. Yes, I've photographed quite a bit in Rainy weather and honnestly even though it's not often preffered, you get the best shots! It's real, romantic and umbrellas always look so vintage in photos.

Below are photos from Josh & Alicia's Engagement Session this past August, enjoy.



September, where did summer go? 7

Alicia and Josh's Engagement | Vancouver, BC Wedding Photographer Ashley Ferreira Dragonflight Photography

Had an amazing evening with Josh and Alicia in downtown Vancouver, had to post this awesome slideshow :) I'm so excited to photograph their wedding in 2011. I wish you both nothing but the Best!

Alicia & James' Backyard Wedding | Whiterock, BC Wedding Photographer

Alicia & James had one of the most amazing back-yard weddings I have been to this summer. July 14, 2010 was the date of their wedding, included with some of the most memorable vows I’ve heard including “I vow to throw amazing parties with you” and some other funny moments making all of us smile and laugh while they read off their vows to each other. A circle of friends and family gathered around the enormous tree in the Clark’s back yard forest where Alicia and James' initials were carved in the tree.

A large white tent sat in the fresh green backyard; while a Air streamer trailer was set up as a great bar and shade for all the guests to enjoy and sip ice-tea. Speeches of James' birth were told in awkward detail to all the guests, but hey it was hilarious moment, sorry James – seeing you blush was completely photo-worthy (sorry!).

Anyway, these two are an amazing couple, and I had a completely blast at their wedding, and hope in the future I can take photos of Alicia trashing her dress (hint hint, jk!). A great bunch of friends and guest that I had the pleasure of meeting, and even another couple that I had the chance to photograph their wedding (Shilo & Josh). I wish you both nothing but the best, and good luck on your kitchen renovations!!!

Enjoy some photos.



Jen & Garrett

I've fallen into a bad habit of not updating my blog with the latest photos since posting on Facebook is one click away... You don't hear about how amazing awesome the couple I photograph are, nor their love story. Well, today that changes, I want to share with you the relationships I've been a pleasure of documenting and new friendships I've made!

I photographed this amazing couple at Swan-e-set in Pitt Meadows not far from their new home in Langley, a few months back. Jen and Garrett's wedding was definately memorable! From the grandious stair cases to the deck out ballroom this wedding was one straight out of the movies especially since the couple looked like movie stars. Jen and Garrett met over a couple of drinks and the rest was history. The weather was truly a miracle, it went from pouring rain to golden sunshine just in time for their out-door ceremony and photos leaving behind some clouds of contrast far off into the distance.

Lazy Blogger and Photos! | Engagement and Wedding Photography Abbotsford, BC - Whiterock, BC

Alright I am most definitely the laziest blogger! I don't feel like I have enough epic stories to type up - but so much has been going on this summer - I've got a couple great tellings to share! This past year has been such a whirl wind of changes and photography. I want to invite you all to come on this journey with me, I'm attempting to give a little bit more of myself on my blog postings and fill you all in on more things about myself, my photography and whatever else pop's into my head. I feel like I've been flying by the past few months since April, and all of a sudden today I opened my iCal to read "Hey Ashley, It's July!!!". I've been a naughty girl and super behind in posting posting onto my blog. I've got great engagement photos I'm going to post today, from Graciela and Rambert. I met Graciela via online contact, and I am incredibly excited for this Paraguay born couple's wedding July 10, in Abbotsford. I had the pleasure of photographing their Engagement in Whiterock, BC - at the pier. Immediately, after the initial getting over the awkwardness of ultra PDA in public. - Yesterday I photographed their wedding in Abbotsford BC.

(above) - This was their web gallery card - I love the bold green in the grass, and they both look fab!

Baby Carson. | Baby, Newborn Photography, Vancouver / Langley, B.C.

I had the pleasure of photography baby Carson yesterday, and couldn't resist to post a couple preview photos onto the blog! He was two weeks old, and irresistably adorable. Courtney contacted me back in April when she was still pregnant, and chose me to photograph newborn photos of Carson. Along with meeting Carson and Courntey, I met Courtney's husband Mike who was there for the session too. It was incredible photographing your family. Thanks guys! Meanwhile, enjoy the preview below.
