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.

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 all...it'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.
