Tasha & Conrad–Church & State Wedding

Tasha and Conrad were married at Church and State last August on another gorgeous day! Tasha was surrounded by so many good friends and family while getting ready in the morning and I loved the matching dressing gowns she had for each of them. Conrad was busy getting ready with his groomsmen before heading over to his parent's house where the couple had planned their first look in the beautiful backyard garden.  The couple adores

Elise & Kurt–Church and State Wedding

Elise and Kurt were married last July at the stunning Church and State Winery in Saanichton, BC. It was a gorgeous day and these two made the most of it! The ceremony was in the top field with the vineyard behind them. The dinner was exceptional and followed by many incredible speeches. A great evening of dancing followed, including a hilarious surprise rap performed by a few members of the bridal party! I hope you

Anja & Haafiz–Wedding Portraits in North Vancouver

Anja and I met in Grade 8 when I gathered enough courage to introduce myself after our math class. My middle name is Anja and it's not exactly a common name so we bonded over our shared German heritage. We then both joined the high school basketball team and because we looked pretty similar when in our basketball uniforms (both tall with blonde pony tails) we earned ourselves the nicknames Casanja #1 and Casanja #2

Taylor & Aaron–Sea Cider Wedding

This wedding was such a special day for me. I've known Taylor for several years now, from working together at Greenhawk, and I'm so thankful to call her my friend. She and her wonderful partner Aaron were married at Sea Cider on a beautiful sunny day last July. We began with a first look and photos at a quiet beach out in Deep Cove where the wind cooperated to add a bit of drama to

Charlotte & Travis- Kildara Farms Wedding

Charlotte and Travis are two of my good friends and for this wedding I played two special roles: Bridesmaid to Charlotte and their photographer. Bridesmaidographer. The fabulous Emma Palm handled all the photography for when I was participating in the ceremony and she did an incredible job!  Charlotte also has leased my horse Zappa for many years, and since they were getting married at Kildara Farms, Zappa's old home, we decided he had to be

Krista & Rob–Starling Lane & Beach House Wedding

It was on Canada Day last year when Krista and Rob tied the knot at the magical Starling Lane Vineyard in Victoria, BC. While the morning began with a bit of rain the skies cleared for the ceremony--leaving everything looking so lush and green. This was my first wedding at Starling Lane and I couldn't get over all the amazing backdrops--everywhere you turn there is another pretty location. Krista and Rob chose to do a

Erica & Arun — Mexico Wedding

Erica and Arun were married back in January 2016 (I know, I know, so behind with blogging!) but I'm bound and determined to catch up and this wedding was so special to me it needs to be featured. Erica and Arun held their wedding at the Azul Fives Resort in beautiful Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The advantage of being at the resort for the full week was we had plenty of opportunities for some extra

A Taste of 2016

I had written this long blog post about all the incredible experiences I had in 2016 and then my website was hacked (yes, that is a thing apparently!) so when the website was recovered I had lost many of the changes I'd made, including the most recent blog posts. So, I'm not going to re-write the whole post but I will say that 2016 was a very full year for me in so many ways.

C & C Wedding — Brew Creek Lodge

Craig and Christine's wedding weekend was an incredible getaway that I'm sure all the guests will remember for a long time to come. It was held at the stunning Brew Creek Centre just outside of Whistler, BC. Many of the guests arrived on Friday night and we all settled into our cabins before re-convening for a delicious BBQ dinner. The food that was served over the course of the weekend was so exquisite my mouth

R&S Wedding

Richelle and Steve's wedding took place on last September at the stunning Church and State Winery in Brentwood Bay. I met Richelle through the horse world here in Victoria so it was only fitting that her wedding have some horse inspired details such as the horseshoes on the tables and the horseshoe adorning her gorgeous bouquet. The rain held off for Steve and Richelle's portrait session after the ceremony and we had such fun touring
