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.

There are so many great ideas at this wedding. One of my favourite personal touches was that all the food at the food stations had personal meaning to them from their travels. The best was the Jamón ibérico that Nicholas actually smuggled from their trip to Spain (shhh). I also loved the limited edition Beta 5 chocolate with their monograms on it designed by Love by Phoebe…because who doesn’t love Beta 5! Another fun idea, was in the morning all the groomsman went out for a foot massage! It's always such a more chilled out time for the guys in the morning. I'm always so amused when I look at Ken's photos and see just how different the bride & groom's morning was! I also loved their twist on the Polaroid guestbook, the giant Instagram "photobooth" and of course everyone loves a four-legged ring bearer.

After all the food and pretty funny speeches, Nicholas definitely got roasted, everyone headed to Prohibition where they had the whole club to themselves! I would have loved to got pictures, but by that time I was home prepping for my next wedding…but I’m guessing it was a pretty crazy time.

Excited to see this wedding in Weddingbells latest issue and on their blog:

We are delighted that Wedluxe magazine featured our recent shoot: The Alchemist http://wedluxe.com/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.

Eeeek!! I'm beyond excited to be part of the Junebug Weddings Best of the Best Destination Collection 2015. Every year I drool over the stunning images from around the world they curate from amazing photographers that I admire so much. I'm so honoured to be a part of it this year!!

Big love for this couple Carly Liao and Eddie Lam, who had the adventurous idea of running away and eloping on a mountain top in New Zealand, a country they've never been too...how romantic. I have to say, elopements might be my favourite! We get to spend so much time with the couple, really getting to know they and witness their love. This will always be a favourite wedding and dear to my heart.

I love it when my clients have new ideas for their engagement shoot. Ilana and Jon propose we do a stylish cat-mouse chase through the maze. Ilana definitely has the perfect dress for it! I loved the idea and we had so much fun shooting together that day.

I can't wait to photograph these two again....tomorrow!!!! I just know it's going to be a beautiful wedding!

Such a perfect spontaneous elopement under the most perfect red tree. I just adored Winnie's bouquet from Celsia, and how it match the tree perfectly...all meant to be! I know these two are going to have a very fun-filled wedding in Bali!

These two are just too fabulous. They are so sweet, so in-love, so fun, so smart and clearly, so h.o.t....I could have photographed them all day...and well, that's exactly what we did! I can't wait for their wedding at the Fairmount Hotel Vancouver next year!

We had such a great time getting to know Stephanie & Fraser (and their family) over the year. These two are such down-to-earth and genuine people....and without a doubt meant for each other. We feel honoured to be part of their day. They had a beautiful sunny wedding at the UBC boathouse, filled with laughs, good food and more laughs and good food. I might have went into a food coma after the yummy made-to-order mac and cheese with all the toppings and the delish food truck cauliflower fries. Also their first look (at Fraser's grandpa's house) had to be one of the most beautiful first look locations we've shot at...even if it caused the groom and most of the wedding part to break out in hives, I think it was worth it!

Here are our exciting new TRAVEL DATES!

We just love shooting in other countries. Different backdrops keep us inspired! This year, we had so many people see where we are traveling to and meeting up with to do their engagement photos! Such a great idea and opportunity to get some unique photos and not have to pay the price to fly us over! We are always open to flying to near by countries while abroad, so if we're close to you just give us a shout and we might be able to swing it.

We also love meeting up with other wedding industry people for coffee, drinks and styled shoots!
