Tori + Rhys

I was honored to spend the day with Tori and Rhys on their wedding day on June 23rd, 2018 in beautiful Nelson, BC at the Prestige Lakeside Resort.

The weather this day was iffy with possibility of rain, so Tori decided to move the ceremony into the resort to have the ceremony, but the weather held off enough to have a private first look between Tori and Rhys before they said, "I do." We were even lucky enough to get some amazing shots down at Lakeside Park, and on the Trolley! How cool was it that the Trolley's number was 23 (The date of their wedding!)?!

So happy for these two. Congratulations, Tori and Rhys! <3

Taylor + Danny

Taylor + Danny

Taylor and Danny's wedding day took place on June 9th, 2018 in Rossland, BC. Taylor decked out the Rossland Miner's Hall and made it absolutely gorgeous. It was an intimate wedding with their closest friends and family, filled with love, laughter and tears.

Taylor was a super organized bride and booked me ages ago. I love it when couples book me early as I seem to get to know them better. I was able to document two engagement sessions (one in the winter and the other in the summer), and I got to know the two of them and their love for one another very well. By the time the wedding rolled around, these two were pros at getting their photos taken!

We had planned to take more photos outside but the rain would NOT let down but no one seemed to mind. The inside of the Old Rossland Firehall was the perfect backdrop for their formals since they originally wanted to host their whole wedding there anyhow. 

They always say rain brings good luck on a wedding day, and it was a beautiful day indeed. These two complete one another, and make each other whole. Congratulations Taylor and Danny - I can't wait to see what your future holds <3.

Sam + Colin

Sam + Colin

These two are getting married next week!!

I've had the pleasure of getting to know Sam over these last few months. This beautiful soul and I are definitely on the same wave length and she's been a breeze to work with because she totally gets the whole mom thing. Colin is a bit quiet - but my goodness does he ever love his girls! He looks at the three of them with absolute love on his face and it was so fun to document.

Their wedding next weekend is just the extra icing on the cake because these 4 have life down pat. I'm so honored to be a part of their big day, and Sam - I can't wait to get our girls together and continue this friendship.

Stay tuned for their wedding photos! <3

Amanda + Mark

Amanda + Mark

Where do I even start with these two!

I was so excited when Amanda asked me to be a part of their big day! We immediately clicked when we met up for the initial wedding consult. Amanda was a busy nursing student at that time and the poor girl was working hard to get her schooling done. 

Fast forward to this day when she was finally done all her exams and her fiance was home. Now she could focus on her new career and getting a beautiful wedding planned! We had a big engagement session planned and I was super excited to third wheel it up with these two! This was the first time I met Mark and it was so awesome to see Amanda so happy and relaxed with her love. Their love and goofiness together was an absolute joy to capture.

We started this session off in their beautiful backyard with their lovely fur baby, Franklin. Amanda had gotten two amazing bouquets from the amazing Stone Meadow Gardens for the shoot, and they did not disappoint.  After the back yard stuff we took the bikes out for a rip and had a little cuddle time with the lillacs. Then we headed our way to Syringa and got in the last few rays with a fire on the beach.

Can't wait for their wedding in August!! <3

Baby Nathan

Baby Nathan

I was so excited when Rose and Owen asked me to come take some lifestyle shots of their new baby boy, Nathan.

Steve and I first met Owen a few years ago through a mutual friend. We have our usual solid group of friends from highschool but Owen fit right in. He's the type of person who makes you feel like you're his best friend and makes sure you don't lose contact. He's grown to be one of our best friends. He's very smart, fit and super modest about all of his awesomeness. We always talked about how great of a guy Owen is and how we can't wait for him to find a great girl. When he met Rose we knew they were a perfect match. Within the last couple of years they've put their life in overdrive and have gotten a fur baby (Numa), got engaged, bought a house and had a beautiful baby boy.

 These are two people that we've always admired, and know they'll excel at parenthood. I remember not long ago Rose talked about being unsure of having children. Thinking of that, I teared up editing these photos because you can clearly see how smitten she (and Owen) are over their baby boy. This little man is super lucky and I just can't wait to see what adventures this family has in store. <3

Also, it's pretty awesome our little ones are only like a month apart so they're obviously going to be best friends! (Two of them at the end)

Marlee + Caleb

Marlee + Caleb

Marlee and Caleb tied the knot in the beautiful home of Caleb's parents in Nelson, BC on St. Patricks Day weekend. Only their immediate family was present, including their adorable little guy - Jackson!

I was so happy to have Marlee's mom ask me to take photos of their intimate day. I've know Marlee since we were kids. We both grew being taught by the same singing teacher and often sang together in choir. Marlee is a couple years younger than me and I always thought of her as being little. Well - not anymore! It was so neat to see her all grown up with a beautiful family of her own. This was the first time I met Caleb and I loved the way he looked at Marlee and goofed around with his son, Jackson.

We ventured down to 1 mile beach after the ceremony for some more family photos and had some fun. Jackson entertained us all with his awesome sillyness. Love this kiddo!

Congratulations Marlee and Caleb! <3

Chantal + Andrew

Chantal + Andrew

It was so awesome to photograph Chantal and Andrew's wedding celebrations! They spread the wedding out over 2 days which was fantastic. Wedding days go by so fast, so it was great to see them be able to visit with everyone who love them so much.

I first met Chantal at one of my fitness classes and we hit it off right away. I'm so happy to call her a friend now and she's one of the most kind and thoughtful people. Andrew originally booked me to document his insanely romantic proposal down by the Columbia River. Seeing these two together just melts my heart. They're so sweet with one another and make an amazing couple.

Their beautiful ceremony and reception celebrations all took place at Birchbank Picnic grounds and I think everyone was guilty at least once of letting a few tears slip. 

I'm so happy I met these two and can't wait to see what their future holds <3 .
