At the Westin Bayshore Vancouver this past summer, I was very excited to be chosen to document the love between two of my closest friends, Patrick and Tobias. I loved their choice in location and all the small details they put together. The venue was the beautiful master suite on the top floor of the Westin Bayshore. Usually occupied by the famous, this suite was perfect for an intimate 60 person event. Tobi and Patrick own a boutique dog store on west broadway called Bow wow Haus their lovely little dog Pixie, was the front and centre of their event, and all the details from place holders (cute little dog tags made by Tobias) to their ceremony were reflective of their passion for dogs and the love they share for Pixie. Their ceremony was coordinated by the amazing Karen Ell (she is always one of my favorite officiants). Thank you Tobias and Patrick for making me a huge part of your amazing day. I Love you guys to bits!
Bridgette and Matt had chosen their Alberta wedding Location in the small town of Forestburg, Alberta. When I made my goal to become an international, destination wedding photographer, my first idea wasn’t exactly shooting a central Alberta wedding in Canada, but when I got there, wow what a surprise! The area was beautiful, a photographers dream! There were so many things to work with, from funky old farms, fields that went on forever, gorgeous views of rivers that lead to the base of mountains, and Even pea fields! This made for some fun pictures. What made the experience even more amazing to me was the people. I was welcomed with such open arms from everyone. Bridgette and Matt (my bride and groom) are both beautiful inside and out, I was so happy to be a part of their special day. And wow, do they ever know how to throw a party! I was really happy with the images we took on this amazing day and I could not have shot them without the amazing personalities of the people in them. Thank you Bridgette and Matt, it was amazing to be a part of this day!
I was thrilled to be the destination wedding photographer for Chris and Carolyn during their contemporary destination wedding in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The amazing thing about shooting destination weddings is how well you get to know each other over this period of time, and Chris and Carolyn also had the opportunity to have tidbits of the whole week documented with their family. Their wedding location was at the Secrets resort in Playa Del Carmen, a fabulous place to get married! Every need imaginable was met at the resort and their ceremony location-Maroma beach- is regularly voted one of the top beaches in the world. Thank you so much Chris and Carolyn for giving me the opportunity to shoot your beautiful wedding in Playa Del Carmen Mexico. It was such an amazing week!
Every detail of the lovely day was perfect and the location, beautiful (especially after Denai’s Dad put in two years of work just for the wedding). After the wedding was over, Dean and Denai invited both their mom’s for our “wrap up” wine and cheese viewing. It was amazing getting to know them and my favourite part? All the ladies tearing up in joy because they LOVED the photos. Thank you so much Dean and Denai. It was so amazing getting to know you and have the opportunity to shoot your special day.
