Wedluxe Magazine Feature: N+C Wedding

Here is a sneak peek of Nicole and Carson's wedding featured in the currently issue of Wedluxe magazine this month! I'll post more photos and tell you about their amazing day and vendor team very soon!!!

Best 9 of 2017

Our best 9 of 2017. This had a real impact on me and reminded me again of the power of a photograph. Between an ambitious work load, shooting in 10 countries and adjusting to the work/mom life... most of this year was quite a blur. And to be honest, maybe the one thing I remember is sitting in front of my computer with that stress feeling in my chest trying to get it all done (#realtalk).

But looking at these tiny little squares, I am instantly transported to these truly incredible moments and I remember the pure awe, joy and ‘pintch-me I can’t believe this is my life’ feeling.

Danielle & Liam: Cambium Barn Wedding

This is a very special wedding, because it’s for one of my dear friends. I met Danielle when I first started out in fashion photography and needed a make-up artist. That was 10 years ago and we’ve been friends ever since….so much so she asked me to be a bridesmaid! So I was on double duty shooting and holding bouquets on this wedding!

Stylish City Engagement

What can I say about these two, they are just absolutely fabulous in every way. I was so looking forward to photographing Jon & Bani in NY and the experience did not disappoint from beginning to end as these two were amazing hosts. They got us the sweetest apartment to stay just off of Central Park and came over the night we arrived for Indian take out and wine in the courtyard. This was perfect as it gave us a chance to get to know each other more and for me to fall in love with these two even more.

Stanley Pavilion Wedding: K+S

Karla and Steve had a city chic wedding at Stanly Pavilion filled with so much love and tears -of laughter. The day seemed flawless…which is exactly what Karla looked in her Vera Wang dress.

Some of my favourite memories are of Karla’s bridesmaid who was still the life of the party, even though she was in crutches (from an accident at the stagette), the amazing impromptu singing, poems, and push-ups from the family, and honestly just all the laughter. I could have done a blog post of just laughs.

Truvelle 2018 Lookbook

One shoot I look forward to every year is the Truvelle Lookbook. The mastermind behind this brand, Gaby, has such a keen eye and talent, to find the most unique backdrops to shoot her gorgeous gowns. This year shooting in Cappadocia, Turkey, did not disappoint.

Shooting hot air balloons at sunrise, walking in caves with camels, exploring ancient ruins and climbing on edges of cliffs, were just some of the stunning adventures we went on while shooting this lookbook.

Painted Rock Winery Wedding: L+E

Well, this was an epic blog. But there were just too many photos full of love and beauty, I couldn't resist. I feel like there is nothing left for me to say, you can see it all. Lauren & Edgars are two of the most genuine and lovely people and they are blessed to be surrounded by just as lovely and genuine friends and family. They're wedding was everything you could have asked for. Gorgeous weather, great people, touching vows, quality speeches, lots of laughs and a few tears. The cherry on top was that it took place at their own family winery, the one and only, Painted Rock.

Lake Como Engagement

Nothing is quite as beautiful and romantic as the stunning Villa Balbianello in Lake Como. That's why it was the perfect place to capture the beautiful and romantic love of Solgo and Alex. Spend just two minutes with these two and you'll know they are perfect together.

Hycroft Wedding: Gloria & Zee

I have shot a lot of weddings (around 250) and Gloria and Zee's wedding has to be one of my favourites. I just love the elegant, fine art look. Not only was everything just drop dead gorgeous thanks to their dream team (see below), but it was so much fun! They had musical acts from their wedding party and family members...but the best was the surprise mash-up dance by Gloria and her dad!

Gloria & Zee Pre-Wedding Photos

This was one FUN pre-wedding shoot. We started at Back in the Saddle Again and shot with some stunning horses. I have to say the staff there was amazing and the horse were so well trained. After that, we headed to Jericho beach, my go-to for the prettiest light and the most romantic trees and long grass. We ended the day in West Van for some epic ocean/cliff shots...always a favourite of mine, with the most perfect sunset and clouds. I couldn't have asked for a better day or a better couple.
