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 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.

Museum of Anthropology Wedding: A + J

I don’t even know where to start with this wedding and these two. It was such a special day and I’ve fallen in love with these two so much….mostly, because they have such a sweet and true love for each other. You will see pictures of a heart locket, I don’t know if they want me to share the story behind it, but let me just tell you, the story is the stuff they write romance novels and movies about. For real, it sends chills up your spine and makes you believe in true love.

Fall is here

I hope everyone is having a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend with family and friends. The Fall has always been one of my favourite seasons. It's still sunny, but there is a slight chill in the air...just enough to make new layered outfits. Time slows down a little, time to reflect. And best of's the beginning of holiday season! Time for parties with lots of yummy food and cocktails!

Here is a styled shoot produced by Erin from Sparkle media we did for Glitter Guide last year, inspired by all that is wonderful about Fall.

Helicopter Engagement Shoot: J+P

I've found one of the most beautiful and peaceful spots ever. It's not surprising it's on top of a mountain. I was so excited that Jessica and Phil wanted to do a helicopter engagement shoot and I think we were all awe struck by the beauty we discovered. It is a sunset I will never forget and I'm so happy I got to share and capture it with such a wonderful couple.

Four Seasons Wedding Published in Wedluxe: S+G

One of the best parts of my job is witnessing true love. I’m starting to consider myself quite the expert at identifying it and let me tell you, you can see in Stephanie and Glenn’s eyes every time they look at each other.

Bali Destination Wedding: Featured on Style Me Pretty

Today, I’m sharing one of my favourite weddings. Not just because it’s beautiful and in Bali and we got to shoot with elephants and in rice fields…but because it is Ken’s brothers wedding!

Dee met Astrid while he was in Indonesia for work and it was love at first sight...literally. It’s easy to see Astrid is drop dead gorgeous, but she is also the sweetest person ever. No really. She called MY mom on Mother’s day before I did! That’s just how thoughtful she is. I’m so lucky to call her a sister and Dee is even lucky now to call her his wife.

Weddingbells: Chic & Stylish Downtown Wedding at Reflections

If you love a chic downtown vibe, delicious drinks and are a bit of a foodie, then you are going to LOVE Klara and Nicolas wedding at Reflections in the Georgia hotel. I know they didn’t want the regular stuffy, boring wedding, and it took them some time for find the right place…and let me tell you the search was worth it. They had such a fun wedding, with good music, lots of mingling and the perfect amount of glam with the beautiful décor & flowers by CC & Jamie Roa.

Wedluxe Magazine Feature: The Alchemist

We are delighted that Wedluxe magazine featured our recent shoot: The Alchemist This book was one of my favourite books growing up. Here are a couple of my favourite quotes from it:

“And, when you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.”

“When we love, we always strive to become better than we are. When we strive to become better than we are, everything around us becomes better too.”

We had an amazing team for this shoot lead by the talented Soha of CountDown Events.
