Truvelle Lookbook 2015

If you are more a modern and unconventional bride looking for a wedding dress that is a little different, then Truvelle is your brand. Made in Gastown, my neighbourhood, these dresses are hand-made with care, love and a story.

I'm so exited to finally show you images from the Truvelle 2015 Lookbook. We had a lot of fun putting this lookbook together and a great team.

Stephanie & Fraser Backyard Engagement

One of my favourite childhood memories was playing in the forest behind my house. Going on mini-adventures, playing hide-in-go-seek, building forts, and picking fresh berries. My forest is what Frasers Grandpa’s backyard was to him. As a child Fraser played in this AMAZING backyard where we did their engagement photos.

Wendy & Hansen Hycroft Wedding

Wendy and Hansen had their wedding at one of my favourite locations, the Hycroft Manor. I love it, not only because is classic and chic, but it's one of the only location where you can be outside, even if it's raining! The gorgeous covered patio kept us all dry while Wendy and Hansen said their 'I do's!" And then the rain went away just in time for us to take some portraits around Vancouver. All in all, it was a perfect day.... which you can see by the smile that never left Wendy's face for the whole day!

Featured on Inspired by This

We are so excited to be featured on the super stylish blog, Inspired by This

If you haven't checked it out you should. The have home decor, fashion, business and even family event ideas. They featured one of my favourite shoots I did with the super talented Peter Wilds, first featured on Wedluxe here:

Cheryl & Simon's Motorcycle Engagement

Sun-flare, gorgeous scenery, beautiful couple in love, and one fine motorcycle...what more do you need.

Just two more sleeps and it's Simon and Cheryl's wedding! I can't wait, I think it's going to be a fun one!

Modern Tropical Wedding Inspiration on Ruffle

I love doing styled shoots. It's a chance to show our creativity and hopefully inspire brides with a new idea for their wedding. In our modern tropical shoot we wanted to play off the currently popular geometric theme, but soften in with some romantic elements. We also wanted to encourage couples to think outside the box for their venue. This Gastown studio with white brick had the exact modern/urban feel we wanted for this stylish modern wedding.

Langara Cover

Well, it’s not the cover of the Rolling Stones…but it’s probably as close as I’ll ever get, so I’ll take it!

Being a photographer and always on the other side of the lens, there are rarely any photos of me. You would think being married to a photographer I would have lots of photos, but it’s the classic story of the cobbler’s wife who has no shoes. This lack of photos was getting so bad that I found out many people in the wedding industry didn’t even know what I look like. Everyone knew the company, but no one knew me.

Vancouver Club Wedding: Featured on Wedluxe

I just love Nicole and Junho’s wedding produced by the ever talented Count Down Events. It is romantic, elegant, and the custom dancing shoes motif on their stationary and dance floor gives it a twist of stylish chic, which reflects their personality. These two are gorgeous, sweet and super stylish.

However, my favourite moment was during the ceremony when Nicole teared-up saying her vows. I was so excited that we captured this moment with a single tear falling down her cheek!

Westcoast Wedding: Vanessa & Jesse

If you are one of my couples, you would have heard about how the First Look was my favourite part of my wedding. I just loved that moment of connecting and the feeling of starting the wedding day together. Over the years, we’ve seen some tear-jerker first looks, but we’ve never seen a more beautiful first look location than Vanessa and Jesse’s at Whytecliff. It looks like they are on the cliffs of Scotland….I admit, it might be Vanessa’s gorgeous red hair making me think that too. Either way, it’s stunning.

Amalfi Coast Italy Wedding

I’ve been lucky enough to shoot around the world and I have to say I think Italy is my favourite. It is just so effortlessly elegant and romantic. That is why when I heard KT Merry, Sandra Aberg and stylist Joy Proctor were doing a workshop in Ravello Italy, it didn’t me long to buy my plane ticket. Especially when I saw it was going to held at the five star resort Hotel Caruso.
