Another year comes to a close and opens up a moment of reflection.

Sometimes I wonder where the time has gone! When this happens, I’m reminded to break out of routine and enrich my life in small and large ways. This is one of my favourite Ted Talks that I gave another quick listen to today, it reminds us that it’s not about the days that you live, it’s about the days you remember.

Now, a nod to 2015 and another amazing year with amazing clients. Here is a slideshow of some of 2015’s memorable shoots, or check them out below!

I am happy to say that I made personal projects more of a priority, one of which turned out to be my favourite 2015 project – a day in the lives of my Grandpa and Grandma which I will elaborate on in a post soon.

Happy New Year and may 2016 hold many memorable days for you!



This power couple got engaged in the same year as Prince Will and Kate but they are almost definitely way cooler!
I loved photographing their easy laid back nature and wonderful family at the Oak Bay Beach Hotel.

We photographed their first look at Cattle Point. Katie waited, barefoot on the ocean rocks as Will walked up behind her in the pouring rain. It was kind of romantic I think.

Congrats you two!

Several years ago I met a talented photographer in photography school named Katie Hillier. Little did I know that she would recommend me to photograph her sister’s wedding half a decade later! It’s always a little bit of extra pressure when photographing a photographer’s wedding or related to, but the Hillier family was so welcoming and made my job super easy and fun! Their speeches were funny, insightful and had everyone tearing up. Combined with unique details, I felt like I really got to know Emily and Matt.

What can I say about this adorable duo? They met in musical theatre and they proved it by singing their vows to each other in an eloquent duet. The ring bearers were dressed as little hobbits and they also cut their cake with swords (the couple, not the hobbits). They had a groom’s cake that was a master ode to The Night Before Christmas and an airstream trailer that was transformed into a Whiskey Lounge. If “A Midsummer’s Night’s Dream” and the “Phantom of the Opera” had a love child, it would be their floral arrangements (which also had several of their favourite fictional characters hidden throughout).

All of this and more brought to together by an amazing local wedding team Filosophi. It was a glorious day and I’m so happy to have photographed these amazing moments! More photos to come but for now, guests at the event can access their photobooth images HERE.  


Held at Providence Farm in Duncan, this wonder of merriment was half wedding, half music festival! Epic line up of Djs and live music all night, everyone had a fabulous time and the reception dinner area was completely dead because no one was sitting.

As a bonus, I finally got to shoot at this stunning abandoned church in Duncan.
Congrats you two! You deserve all the love you get.

I absolutely loved shooting Katelyn and Rob’s Scottish fairytale wedding on Saturday! I met Katelyn and Rob when I photographed Rob’s sister’s wedding a couple years ago (Trina and Steve). I love photographing the same family and getting to know them even better! Rob proposed to Katelyn at the Disneyland wishing well. This shared romantic streak was evident throughout their whole day complete with Horse drawn carriage and stolen glances. The ceremony was held at St.Anne’s Academy which is a castle of a church with the reception at Hotel Grand Pacific. Congratulations you two!
