The Princess Bride Event at The White Peony Bridal Boutique

Last fall, my sister Amber became engaged (on their decade anniversary)! I immediately booked a dress shopping appointment at The White Peony – my favourite bridal gown boutique in Victoria.

Armed with my camera of course, my mom and two sisters made a day of it and it struck me how much this girl time was an integral part of the wedding day experience. A girl looks forward to inviting the women in her life to this anticipated event and I was so happy to have these photos of my sister’s first bridal excitement and my mom’s maternal reaction. I thought that photographing this celebration and relationships should be a more common practice surrounding the event and pitched the idea to Trish at The White Peony.

Sarah from Fresh View Events made a beautiful and fragrant bouquet for the brides to complete the look, while Jenna from DM&Company salon offered quick mock trial soft updos and makeup applications. Cupcakse, goodie bags and champagne was the icing on the cake and we had a fabulous day of veils, lace and emotions.

Brides, thank you for attending! You all looked beautiful. Download your photos for free HERE.

Victoria Wedding Meetup

Our bad ass new photobooth recently made an appearance at Victoria’s first annual wedding meet up! Organized by Jesse Holland Photography and Barb Raymond from French Kiss Events, the night was guaranteed to be beautiful and well organized. The event took place at the historic and beautiful Union Club.

It was an amazing night of mingling and story swapping and collaborating and goofing around. The photobooth was lots of fun and definitely one of the highlights….especially after a few glasses of that champagne they were passing around. The room was beautifully decorated, with all the signs, graphics, flowers and music brought in by local, talented sponsors.

It was great to see some familiar faces and some new ones- we are fortunate to have such an encouraging and talented wedding industry here on the island. Everyone is such a pleasure to work with at each wedding and I can tell you that these vendors go above and beyond for every couple.

Friends, click HERE for access to the photobooth images!

Scarlet Photography Exhibit/ MS Society Fundraiser

My favourite colour is orange, it’s in my logo, it’s on my car and my boyfriend is orange. For those of you who know me, you know that I have had a long affair with gingers. I especially love photographing freckles so I have been wanting to do a photography exhibit as an ode to this special breed among us.

Special thanks to the victims, er, models that responded to my ginger casting call!

Every year, I volunteer at The Mistletoe Gala – a fundraiser for the MS Society of Canada. It’s taking a break this year, so I thought I would incorporate a silent auction as part of the exhibit to raise some funds for the cause.

I was blown away by the community response, especially at short notice – over 5k in product and services were donated! Special thanks to Ron at Brickyard Pizza for making and donating much of the food. 4 20X30 canvases were adopted to new homes!
Event Coverage by Adriana Durian Photography.

My photobooth was there as well! Get your photos from the booth HERE.

Michael + Yanmin [Vancouver Island Wedding Photography]

I met Michael in 2010 when a photography classmate of mine was interning with him at his amazing commercial photography studio. I was new to photography then and I really appreciated how Michael really cared to support new photographers and we quickly became friends and colleagues.

Fast forward and he met Yanmin. Yanmin is a beautiful young woman, she is confident, smart and I love that they tied the knot! It was an intimate ceremony with close friends and family at Amuse Bistro in Mill Bay, an artisan bistro and winery in a rustic setting (loved it!).

I also loved Yanmin’s oriental dress and the chinese cultural aspects of the ceremony. These two are big foodies and the hor d’orerves did not dissapoint! And check out that cake which is actually a pyramid of cream puffs that I’m sure I will never see again, very cool.

Congrats you two! I loved capturing your day.

Allison + Adam [Langley BC Wedding]

I was eager to work with Allison right away! She has the most amazing spunky and genuine personality. Adam was a sure reflection of this, with an equal wit. It was a joy to photograph their easy chemistry.

Allison’s mom and both of their families were amazingly hospitable and fun, by the end of the night I was actually energized (even joined a congo train behind grandma!).

The wedding was held at Adam’s mother’s beautiful backyard in Langley, complete with a perfect white wedding gazebo and suited golden retriever and his pug-tutu sidekick! Allison’s late father was there in spirit via a sentimental framed portrait of him on his seat.

The wedding colours were grey and yellow, complete with suspenders and an actual bride and groom cake topper (cannot believe I haven’t seen one of those yet). The reception was at Murrayville Hall, a new location for me and I loved the rustic vibe of this heritage building. We stuck with the heritage vibe and did their bridal party and romantic portraits at Fort Langley National Historic Site. I absolutely loved all of the cottages and potential at this location! I could shoot there all day.

It was a beautiful day full of perfect times and good company, I’ll let the images and slideshow emote what I cannot describe in words.

I was especially impressed with their DJs, The Music Caterer who were amazing to work with, had great tunes and knew how to get the crowd going!
