This was the last wedding of 2014 for me and I knew it would go out with a bang. After I photographed Jillian + Shawn’s engagement session, I knew that these young lovebirds were going to have an especially romantic wedding, and they didn’t disappoint!

The wedding ceremony and reception took place at the vintage-esque Brock House near Jericho Park in Vancouver. Hailing from Alberta, but with their hearts set on the west coast, it was important that we captured the lush greenery and cool vibes of BC in their images. This included a first look in Deep Cove followed by images in Stanley Park.

I knew they would be up for anything so I brought a feather pillow, a pair of scissors and combined the two on a mission to attain the image below

Jillian and Shawn have matching hearts – both sensitive, romantic and artistic and these qualities echoed in the wedding ambiance and respective families. Shawn sent Jillian a good morning video to play as well as 50 letters, one to be opened every year on the anniversary for the next half century. Jillian has been secretly writing “reasons why I’m marrying you” everyday in a book for the past year – they range form simple and goofy to simple and profound and were featured in her vows to him. Then he surprise acoustically serenaded her at the reception.

Oh, and Shawn and his dad have matching weddings bands because his parents were accidentally sent two groom’s bands when they go married, so they kept it for their future son. It’s really cool to see them together since one band’s pattern has been worn 25 years longer than the other.

I can’t wait to show more images from this unforgettable day, but for now I give thee the ever-incriminating photobooth photos HERE.

I absolutely loved shooting Amber + Kyle’s wedding. They are both super in love and nerdy and their shared love of comic books and star wars was evident in crafty details embedded into their elegant rustic wedding at Maple Grove Guesthouse in Duncan. It was my first time shooting at this amazing location. They don’t advertise because they don’t need to – it’s all word of mouth. It’s a gorgeous rustic setting and the owners have put so much love into the place. The wedding day was complete with an ornery horse (who insisted that Amber’s lace dress was edible), canoe ride on a pond, bonfire and an epic guest-wide light saber battle with smoke grenades and theme music. Definitely not something I will forget anytime soon and a definite good time had by everyone:)After the party, everyone camped out and enjoyed a pancake breakfast the next morning. I look forward to sharing more of those images, but for now, guests can access their photobooth images HERE.

When Kortney and Ben told me they were getting married at Hatley Castle, I was immediately excited because it is not-so-secretly where I want to tie my own knot in the future. Weirdly, I have never photographed a wedding there, though I have fantasized about it. Kortney and Ben are ridiculously photogenic and their family knows how to party which equalled some pretty stunning images. After the Hatley Castle ceremony, we took photos among the gorgeous Castle grounds complete with massive grecian columns and a Japanese garden. Before we headed to Fort Rodd Hill (another personal favourite photo location), the entire bridal party took their limo to the local Burger King for some classy snacks. The reception was at the  Esquimalt Wardroom, complete with panoramic ocean views and some very talented dance moves on behalf of the wedding party. Finally shooting at Hatley was amazing. Shooting this couple in love and their family was amazing. My job is pretty amazing. For guests at the wedding, you can access your photobooth photos HERE.

I absolutely loved shooting this day for Alex and Stacy. I’ve known Alex since first year residence at UVIC back in the day and I’m so happy that he has found such an elegant girl to be his wife. That’s what struck me about Stacy when we did their engagement shoot – she is a timeless beauty and such a sweetheart!

The wedding itself was amazing – so many faces I recognize from first year but hadn’t seen in years! The ceremony and reception was held at the beautiful and relativley new Prestige Ocean front Resort in Sooke. A beautiul venue for a beautiful day!
