Stefanie and William - Vancouver Wedding Photography

I had a lovely afternoon with Stefanie and William the other day... they are currently living in Hong Kong but were in Vancouver for a few days to visit family.  We met in Stanley Park and spent a few hours together taking photos around our gorgeous city and celebrated their upcoming wedding in Hong Kong.  We honestly could not have asked for better weather that day!  With the backdrop of Vancouver as our gorgeous setting, we captured a lot of beautiful moments for them to take home!

Stefanie and William, thank you for choosing me to document this special time in your lives... I wish you all the best for a fabulous and fun wedding day in November!







Erin & Jeff - Vancouver Engagement Photos

Happy 2012 to everyone!  It is a New Year and one I am very excited about... there are a lot of beautiful weddings on the roster this year and lots to look forward to.  My first wedding of the year will be this fabulous couple, Erin and Jeff... I had the pleasure of photographing their engagement shoot awhile back and as you can see, not only are they a gorgeous couple and absolutely adorable together, they are also very much in love.  I just love it when my couples make my job so easy...

Erin and Jeff are great friends of Kim and Keith, whose wedding I photographed back in September.  I look forward to seeing them again at Erin and Jeff's wedding next month at Swan-E-Set.  I just KNOW it is going to be a fun and fabulous wedding day!

Oh, and Happy Birthday, Erin!  I hope you're having a wonderful birthday... see you soon!!





sarah & mike - vancouver engagement photos

when I first met Sarah & Mike, I had an immediate connection with both of them... you know when you meet someone and you are so comfortable, you feel as if you've known them forever?  it was just like that and I knew it was going to be an absolute pleasure to work with them.  I'm happy to say, I was right!  they live in Alberta and we scheduled their engagement shoot well in advance for a weekend they were home in Vancouver.  we had so much fun shooting that day, starting off at Jericho in the gorgeous shade of the park and then down to the beach... and then we headed off to UBC where Sarah & Mike are both long-time alumni.  it was such a good day, I didn't even mind the fact I was working on Mother's Day... mainly because they are so much fun to hang out with!  but also because, as a Mother's Day gift, my fabulous daughter came along with me to assist.  I love having her with me when I'm working because it feels so much less like work... and she even got a few awesome shots off as well!  like the one in the upper right of this series... it was such a nice compliment to my up-close images.  she actually got quite a few great shots that day... what can I say, my kid rocks.  and apparently takes good photos, too!one






Sarah and Mike, thank you for sharing yourselves so naturally that day!  I am soooo looking forward to your wedding in  few weeks...

I have the best clients...

I received an e-mail last week (on my birthday, no less!) from one of my awesome brides from this past year, Angela. it was incredibly kind and it made me feel really happy, so I wanted to share it here...

Hello my friend,

I sit here thinking about how Jon and I can express our gratitude for the part u have played in our wedding (a huge part). There really are no words to show you how special and sweet of a person you are. I stayed up quite late last nite just looking at the books over and over again. It never seems to get old for me (much to Jonathan's surprise). You have given me a chance to re-live the best day of my life (thus far) I will always have a glimpse of that magical day right at my fingertips. You have not disappointed me since the day we met and the books are even more beautiful than I imagined. I can't wait to show everyone I know. Jon and I wish you all the best that life has to offer...cuz u have more than added to ours. I hope that your business will flourish for years to come and I will without a doubt in my mind see u again one day! Santa will be very good to you this season cuz u have been nothing but *GOOD* all year round! Have a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!

Much love, Jonathan & Angela =P

THANK YOU, Angela! you know, from the moment I met you both I knew we were going to have a blast working together. you two are very special and it was an honour and a pleasure to be a part of capturing what you have together. you made my job very easy.

I think this is a great time to thank ALL of my brides and grooms from this year! thank you, thank you, for putting your trust in me to document one of the most important days of your life. I love what I do and I am very fortunate to have clients who feel the same way. it has been an amazing year and I have been very blessed. I want to wish each and every one of you all the best of the holiday season!

much love,


shauna & thomas

our beautiful Fall weather made a stunning backdrop for my engagement shoot with Shauna & Thomas on the weekend!  they are such a classy couple and we had a great time getting to know each other and enjoying the sunshine.  I love when my couples choose to do an engagement shoot as it really gives us a chance to break the ice.  I love the opportunity to document their relationship in a casual environment with no time constraints and lots of time for creativity!  they were a bit nervous to start, but they took my suggestion of lots of snuggling and warmed right up...

lots of love between these two...

look at these trees!  I just love the colour...

loved the lines of these steps and the light was amazing...

something tells me this might be the shot for those cool "Save the Date" cards Shauna has planned...

can't wait for the wedding in August, guys!
