Kirsten & Jamie -Save the Date- Playland Style

This couple wins the award of having the most fun in a shoot hands down! All of this despite the rain starting within the five opening minutes of the Playland photo shoot AND Kirsten spilling a blue snow cone on Jamie’s white shirt. Did any of this spoil the mood? Not for one second! We couldn’t get this couple to stop laughing for one moment. Serious photos were not on the agenda. Our initial plan was to have them (and some playful strangers) holding up their “Save the Date” signs.

Mallory & Glen - Save the Date: 'Laundromat Love' Mini-Movie

Over the last few years, as engagement shoots have become more and more popular, people have had to be more creative to make something truly unique. A recent trend has been the creation of ‘Save-the-Date’ shoots. Thanks to technology, it’s now easy to share video and movie-making techniques…mini- movies are the next big thing! Video has the special ability to capture a couples’ mood and emotions, making it perfect for engagement shoots and weddings.

Robyn & Jason-Destination Wedding: Naramata, B.C.

Robyn and Jason had their weekend get-a-way wedding right in the same place where they fell in love... Naramta, B.C. Wine country! The location was perfect, the food was delicious, and wine was even better. Friends and family from afar attended and even the sun showed up! All-in-all, it was a perfect wedding!

Sue & Farid - Engagement: Gastown/Studio Loft/Yaletown

This couple came to their engagement shoot with their game ON! Sue's hair and make-up was professionally done and they came ready with three outfit changes each! They were a photographer’s dream. The way we see it, how often do you get professional photos done? None of us are getting any younger…so why not have fun with your engagement shoot and go all out!! Granted, you have to feel like you. If you feel best in a hoodie and bedhead, then please rock up in the oldest, most comfy hoodie you have!

Karen & Allen - Engagement: Burnaby Mountain

Karen and Allen wanted blossoms for their engagement shoot. Unfortunately as we got closer to the shoot date, we witnessed more pink blossoms falling off trees. It was like a visual reminder of our engagement session's deadline! Lucky, in a moment of panic it hit us, Burnaby Mountain! Higher up = cooler temperatures = later blossom season. Sure enough, as we drove up, we noticed the blossoms were PERFECT! Just like how Karen and Allen are for each other!

Anna & Daryl - Wedding

I've known Anna for over 15 years now, ever since the days of Boyz II Men and high school band. I do not know a more friendly and bubbly personality, and so when I met Daryl for the first time, I was ecstatic for Anna. Daryl is as solid as solid can be. A great guy, easy-going, and a perfect match of a man for Anna's persona. And what do you get when you combine these two happy and fun people? A utterly great wedding, that's what.

Antonio & Angie's Engagement Photos

We had a mission: find cherry blossoms. Antonio and Angie helped us brainstorm places to shoot, but in the end, we and the very sweet couple settled on Steveston. Any why not? You have cute shops, a lovely beach, a gorgeous walkway, and a some fantastic heritage buildings lining the shore. Oh yeah, and the cherry blossoms? Unadulterated and in full bloom. It helped that they lived in Richmond too!

We strolled, we photographed, and we had a great time. They fit very nicely in each other's arms... we cannot wait for the wedding in July!

Melissa and Karel-Maternity Shoot

Karel and Melissa are a lovely, down-to-earth couple, well traveled, and always the ‘life’ at any party. They are friends of my husband and I had the pleasure of getting to know them while we all taught in Taiwan together many years ago. Well actually, Melissa and I taught, Karel was a student advisor who for some reason could never be found in his office when it happened to be a good surf day :)

Lisa & Wyatt -West Coast Wedding

Lisa and Jeff flew in from Singapore to have a West Coast Wedding. This couple is the whole package. Not only are they ridiculously beautiful on the outside, they’re even more attractive and super sweet on the inside…and when you're with them, it’s quite easy to see all the love that they have for each other.
