This wedding was so much fun from beginning to end and really makes me love our couples. As you scroll through the photos you learn so much about these two. At first glance there is no denying, this is one good looking couple. But there is so much more... You see they are such lovely people who are easy to laugh and smile. So off course they had many friends and family fly across the world for their wedding.
Then comes their First Look. This might be one of my favourite first looks ever. They went back to back and read cards from each other. Both of them were in tears. This just shows the love they have for each other. *melt* The type of love everyone dreams of. Then to top everything off was the reception. This shows you just how much FUN these guys are. I didn't post half of the crazy party shots, but let's just say any bride that has a soul train dance off AND jumps into the pool when her stunning dress on, is great in my books.
Again, I always feel so blessed that my job makes me cross paths with such wonderful people from across the world that we would never know otherwise. Meeting these two was the greatest perk of my job, the fact that their wedding was in Thailand was just a bonus.
On that note, if you are ever having a wedding in Thailand, I can not recommend Wedding Bliss Thailand planners enough. They are so professional, sweet and can make anything you can imagine come to life!

I always love trying to do something with different with each couple that should who they really are. Chatting with Lauren, she told me that one way she shows her love is by cooking for Edgar. She then went on to say that their home is so important to them that this is where Edgar proposed to her. It soon became evident that a home engagement session would be perfect to capture their love. I came over to their home one Sunday morning and just documented their Sunday ritual: Coffee in bed, Lauren cooking, Edgar sitting across from her watching and sneaking bites and them curling up on the couch eating breakfast together. Adorable.

I was so excited when asked to photograph, Jillian Harris (former Bachelorette and current host of HGTV Love it or List Vancouver) baby shower. The event was so gorgeous! I loved how everyone wore white. Giving guests a colour palette to wear is a fun idea for any event! And if you follow the star on social media, which I know many of you do, you will know that she end up having a beautiful baby boy, named Leo. Everyone at the shower was thinking boy...it's funny how some times you just know.
This event was feature in Hello Canada Magazine

I love interior design, so when the talented Monkia Hibbs asked if I would shoot her baby girls nursery reveal, I basically got off the phone and ran right over! The room literally took my breath away, especially the flower wall paper! I not super girly, but I was in love with that perfectly pink girls room.

Ken and I always love destination weddings. It gives us a chance to shoot in beautiful new locations and we get to meet fabulous people from around the world, like Lynn and Matt. They pick an amazing venue for their wedding, The Naka, in Phuket, Thailand. I fell in love with the modern, minimal design and the fact that each room comes with an infinity pool was the icing on the cake!
Wedding Bliss Thailand (my fav group of girls who I highly recommend) planned their day and it was perfect from beginning to the end. Which ended with fireworks over the ocean just for them. How romantic is that!
Shout out to Jon who helped us shoot this wedding. I was 8 months pregnant and I wasn't sure how the Thailand heat would effect me so we brought someone with us. Turns out I was fine (I wasn't going to let a baby bump or 40 degrees weather slow me down ;) but it was lovely to have another traveller and talented photographer with us. It also meant we could order more dishes of Thai food ;)
It was a long wait, but we are so happy to finally be able to share this amazing wedding that is featured in Wedluxe Magazine on news stands now, with a 7 page spread!
Helia had a vision for her dream wedding and she pulled together a dream team to make it happen! If you love old-world glamour combined with romance and timeless elegance, you will love this wedding! Helia did not over look any details. From finding the perfect dress (after trying on 80!), delivering the most breathtaking invites, to adding original details like a LOVEBALL seating chart...oh and we can't forget that cake. There was literally over-the-top eye candy everywhere you looked. It was one wedding that no one would forget.

Blossom season has to be one of our favourite times for engagement photos, everything looks so pretty and romantic. But when you're photographing Michelle and Jon, I think we could have done it anywhere and it would have turned out pretty and romantic (and pretty darn fun). These two are just the best, complete gems, inside and out.
Woke up today to find out Weddingbells Magazine names us one of the TOP wedding photographers in Canada for a second time!
We are so delighted and want to send a big THANK YOU to all our wonderful couples. It's because of you that we love our job so much and continue to pour our heart and soul into every wedding day. xoxox
Barcelona is one of those cities that just has soul. Every time I go, I love visiting the hole-in-the-wall haunts that I discovered on previous trips...and then wandering the streets to find some new gems.
It was so lovely to walk these streets with the Truvelle crew, shooting for their third season.
