I’m starting this year with one of my favourite engagements from last year, Janene and Ashton's. They had a super stylish engagement shoot planned by Victoria at Style Social Events. Inspired by Vogue, the concept was that they skipped the after party and opted for a table for two at a Parisian café.

These two are lovely as they are gorgeous and stylish. I could have photographed them all day. Can’t wait to show you photos from their 2-day wedding festivities!

5. Went on a true holiday in Venice

In Vancouver you never know what type of weather you are going to get. But for Adela and Stephan the weather gods were in their favour and the day was PERFECT! These two are super easy-going and we had so much fun photographing them. Actually, I think Adela might have been a model in her past life. I also just adored their cozy fall outfits. Perfect for our westcoast seaside shoot.

We are so excited to see Helia and Andrian's engagement photos on Wedluxe. This was one epic engagement shoot, 3 looks in 1 day. It took an amazing team and fabulous couple to pull it off. Can't wait for their wedding next year!!! If this was their engagement, I can only imagine what they are going to do for their wedding!

If you spend about 30 seconds with these two, you know right away they are completely smitten with each other. Which makes them so much fun to photograph! You can tell we had a great time shooting, because I think I sucked every last drop of sunlight left from the gorgeous sunset we had. I can't wait to photograph these two again in January at the beautiful Rosewood Georgia Hotel. It will be a great start to 2015!

I’m so excited to finally show you Hilary and Chris’s wedding. We were waiting for Wedluxe Magazine to publish it first, which you can see it now on newsstands!

It was one of the weddings from last year I was looking most forward to. I had so much fun working with Hilary over the year. She is such a sweet heart. For example, her wedding was on my birthday. She sneakily asked Ken what my favourite dessert was (lemon meringue pie) and had a piece waiting for me when I arrived in the morning. It’s HER big day, but she was thoughtful enough to think of me.

Hilary had a great team of vendors to bring her vision alive. Two of my favourite wedding details, was her Chanel inspired paper flower backdrop by Flowerz and her individual cakes for each table by Kien and Sweet.

There were so many great speeches and laughs throughout the night. A testament of how great these two are. I found myself especially drawn to her grandparents. They seemed so in love and loving every moment of the day. You can see a picture of them during the ceremony. I only hope Ken and I can grow that old and happy together. I have no doubt that Hilary and Chris will

The great thing about having two photographers, is that we have two different points of views…and Darlene and Kiran’s wedding had elements that got both of us excited.

Ken loves kids. While editing this wedding, all I heard was him giggling at how cute the kids were. I think they are now the star of his instagram (@aerialken). I have to admit, their daughter (the flower girl) was one of the most confident, kind, mature and funny kids I’ve ever met. I was so impressed that I had to ask what their parenting secret was. They said consistency. They then retracted that and admitted it’s just her…she is pretty wonderful. (I like to think it’s due to the Asian/White mix and Ken and I will have just as an amazing child when the time comes ;)

Me on the other hand, love all things pretty. And Darlene is that. I think I kept showing Ken every second photo say, “Ohh…look at her in THIS photo!” This bride cannot take a bad photo. Needless to say, we were in our element and had so much fun at this mini destination wedding in sunny Kelowna!
