There are people you meet in life that are infectious; their laughter, stories, and personality invite you in and you leave feeling as if you have met your newest best-friend. From our first dinner consultation Christina and I had a blast, and when their engagement session arrived the same beauty and pure joy shone through when Kyle held her in his arms.
They floated effortlessly around the engagement session; an honest giggle turned into a warm embrace, and moved into a tender kiss that was like a delicate dance between two intertwined souls.
Their Spring wedding is going to be amazing, and I am so excited to document it for them, they may just be my favorite!
I had such a great time photographing Henry and Joka’s engagement pictures; constant laughter and a perfect afternoon glow blessed the session, and their hearts. I am so honored to photograph this lovely couple’s 2016 spring wedding, their love is a sight to be seen, and I cant wait for May!
Yellowknife is a curious place, especially for a BC grown girl like myself. I’ve heard at least 80% of the year is winter, which isn’t the worst thing in the world when you love the clean crisp shade of white lying like a blanket over everything (that is until your fingers freeze even with gloves). There are roads made of Ice, Skies full of Aurora, and a community that is much more like a family then anything I have yet to experience. In fact I had made some amazing friendships through a photography page for the NWT long before I moved here. One of those photographers was a man named Lee Sacrey.
Lee’s niece was in preparation of her wedding when she went to her uncle for council for her wedding photographer. After multiple people sent their portfolio’s in I was blessed to be contacted by Denika, the excitement in her voice was akin to my own as the wedding was just around the corner for Ian and myself.
When Denika and Shawn asked me to be their wedding photographer I counted it as an honor, they are my first Bride and Groom North of 60 and I cant wait to tell their story.
Here are just some of my favorite pictures from their Engagement Session yesterday. We had to fight strong winds and harsh light, but I couldn’t be more in love with the result.
I love when I get to photograph a friend that I have known since childhood. Carolynn and Braden recently got engaged, and when we went up to Columbia Valley we got to play with some autumn colours, and luckily not bad weather. I cant wait to shoot her wedding in April.
There is something so amazing about shooting into the sun, a warm glow sweeping across skin. I was so blessed to be asked to shoot my lifelong friend Carolynn’s wedding, and I am beyond in love with the perfect light that we had during her engagement session. Congrats again Braden and Carolynn!
Aj and Michelle are an AWESOME couple. Its easy to see once you’ve met them that they are sheer fun and full of adventure. AJ grew up in the Fraser Valley and Michelle moved here from Alberta a couple years back. Individually they are infectious personalities, together they are an unstoppable couple.
They are very much in love and completely enamoured by each other, and I cant wait to shoot their wedding this September!!!
Johan and Kailie are one of those couples you have known your whole life. I grew up with both of them from childhood to present, and even though they may not have ‘found’ each other till now, I guess the old saying “they were right under your nose the whole time” really does apply. I couldn’t imagine two people so perfectly made for each other as them. I can’t wait to shoot their wedding next month!

When Andrea contacted me about shooting her wedding I was beside myself with excitement for my Vancouver bride, we had so many ideas on where to go, and even though the initial engagement session was impromptu we made it work and I fell inlove instantly with their images. I asked Andrea what their love story was, and she was more then kind enough to give us a glimpse into the moment that changed her life for good, the engagement story!
Andrea writes: “We flew over to Palm Springs June 3rd, when we arrived in sunny Palm springs the weather was beautiful the air was crisp and breezy and the temperature was just right! It was around the second night we were watching a local jazz band at the beautiful resort, after a few glasses of red wine and watching an amazing guitar player finish his solo, Mike then asked me to walk around the koi ponds in the area and to glance at the full moon shining that night. We walked over to an uncover patio area staring at this one koi pond that had the moon shining so bright over top of water it was glistening so beautiful ! At that moment mike handed me a penny and had one in his hand and asked me to make a wish at that moment and throw the penny in the beautiful pond (which I did) ! He asked what I wished for , of course I said ‘I can’t tell you or else it will not come true’ I asked him what he wished for , and that is when he pulled the ring out and said ‘for you to be my wife forever and always !’ And the rest follows ….”
I cant wait for their September Wedding at St. Francis and Queen Elizabeth Park!
Royce and Tasha have got to be the cutest eclectic couple I have met this year. With their little Gold Table Number Dinosaur and wedding colored balloons it was shaping up to be a fun session. We had lots of laughs throughout the hour and I laughed just as much as they did when I was changing lenses; I told them to stop being cute so I dont miss anything picture worthy… then while I was changing lenses I heard Royce saying to Tasha “STOP BEING SO CUTE”. I cannot wait to shoot their wedding this May, It will be equally as sweet!
