Mexico Destination Wedding: Kristin & Alex

After only dating for while, Kristin and Alex decided to take the plunge and move to Punta Mita Mexico together. It was there they fell in love, so it’s only fitting, years later, that they brought their closest friends and family (including their fur baby) back to this beautiful place to witness them say, “I do”.

I was so honoured that they asked us to join them to capture the experience. It was a week full of sun, tequila, late night dancing, boys fishing trips and girl pool parties at a pretty sweet villa. These photos I’ll leave up to your imagination ;)

Hycroft Bridal Inspiration featured on 100 layer Cake

Shooting at the Hycroft is always a dream, especially when you have a dream team such as ours!

Here are three styles of dresses that are trending for 2016. I love that crop tops have found they’re way into the wedding world and I simply adore the Remington Haley Paige dress with the neutral bodice. (Oh, I want to get married again!)

New Zealand Elopement

Oh where to start, there are so many wonderful moments and memories about this wedding. Perhaps finding a field full of the friendliest sheep or taking a helicopter to the New Zealand mountains looking for the perfect place to say “I do”, or after the ceremony landing in a lavender field at sunset (pure magic).

Our hearts were pumping with excitement during all these moments and we felt so lucky that we couldn’t even believe it was happening, it was all too perfect. These beautiful moments will be with us for a lifetime.

Malibu Engagement

Part 2 of Diana & Tristan's engagement. This was definiltey one of my favourite engagement shoots from last year. Diana and Tristan are just sweet hearts and you can not beat this stunning location. I loved it so much, that I wasn't even that upset when I destroyed two of my cameras by standing in the ocean and being hit by a rouge wave....anything to get that perfect shot ;)

You can see Part 1 of there shoot, with a completely different look here:

Featured on Wedluxe: S & H Vancouver Club Wedding

Sara and Hunter’s wedding was one wedding that always stands out. That night the Vancouver Club was packed to the brim. There was endless laughs, wine flowing and dancing till the wee hours. But besides the good vibes, this wedding is so memorable because they created an enchanted forest, INSIDE the Vancouver Club. She had miniature trees line the long Tuscan style tables. It was so impressive and something I’ve never seen before! The vision was brought to life by the talented Tala Florist.

Best Decor of 2015

It's no secret, I love decor. It's one of the many reasons that I love wedding photography, that it somewhat incorporates my love for interior design. I think it's fabulous that weddings are getting more creative these days and really showing off the couple's style and personality. I always say I love living the spectrum of life...meaning, I like to experience it all and I love so many different styles...that it was 100% impossible for me to order my favourite decor. Instead, these are all my top favourite wedding decor for 2015! I hope you find some inspiration!

Best Locations of 2015 Countdown!

A beautiful location is something that really inspires me…I feel it in my soul. And it’s funny, I’m never content just shooting a beautiful landscape, I always need people in it. This is why even on holidays, I never stop working...if there is a beautiful location, I need to photograph someone in it, asap!

2015 was one pretty year!

2015 was such a wonderful year. From elopements via helicopters in New Zealand, to barefoot "I do's" in Mexico, to over the top lavish ballroom weddings...it was non-stop beauty and beautiful moments. We did 40 weddings last year and on our last wedding on boxing day, I couldn't stop tearing up. Part might have been the pure exhaustion of our busy year...but it was mostly that I was filled with so much joy and appreciation that this was our job and how lucky we are. Being witness to such true love and beauty almost every weekend.
