K & C Wedding–Providence Farm

Kira and Craig were married last September at Providence Farm in the Cowichan Valley. This venue is enormous--the perfect spot to throw a big wedding! There are stunning gardens, a massive field with room for several tents and a dance floor, and even areas for camping overnight, which many of the guests opted for. Kira and Craig brought their lovely dog to the wedding and she had a great time posing for photos; some of

C & B Wedding

Courtenay and Beau travelled all the way from Australia for their wedding which was held in a family member's gorgeous backyard in the Duncan area. Courtenay is originally from the island and met Beau while living in Australia. Their wedding day had everything from rain to wind that knocked the power out to some moments where the sun hinted it might be nearby. The gorgeous tent set up in the backyard kept everyone dry and

C & R Wedding–Beach House

Carolyn & Ryan tied the knot last August on a gorgeous sunny day while the waves crashing behind them at the Beach House in Cordova Bay. The ceremony took place after an incredible first look photo session at the Parliament buildings downtown. We had a fun time touring around the legislative grounds for photos before returning to the limo and departing for the Beach House.  After speeches and a fantastic slide show the dancing began

J&M Qualicum Beach Wedding

This was such a beautiful August wedding and it couldn't have been more fitting for this couple than to be held in Qualicum Beach, right next to the crashing of the waves by the ocean. J&M are both avid surfers and athletes and love to enjoy nature and the outdoors. After the seaside ceremony, we headed into the nearby woods for some portraits and made our way back to the beach. I've heard about the

A & G Wedding

This August wedding day started off with a bit of a drizzle and then an absolute downpour while the bride and groom were getting ready. We kept peering out the barn doors at Kildara Farms and just when it was time for the radiant Amanda to walk down the aisle the rain began to lighten up and eventually stop completely. After the ceremony we spent some time taking photos around the farm, which was so

N & R’s Wedding

Nick and Roxanne were married on the August long weekend at the Delta Victoria Ocean Pointe hotel with a stunning backdrop of Victoria's inner harbour. The weather was spectacular, as was everything else to do with their special day. This was the largest bridal party I've ever worked with and everyone was such fun and up for everything, including skipping! There were many wonderful details, from the divine cupcakes (there was just about every option

L & J –Kildara Farms Wedding

Lacey & Josh were married on a smoking hot July day at Kildara Farms in North Saanich. We had such fun at their engagement session the previous fall (you can view that here) and the same can be said for their wedding day. These two were smiling from ear to ear all day long. After the beautiful ceremony in the garden we took some respite from the heat by venturing to the ocean for some

A Taste of 2015

I can't believe 2015 is coming to a close already! This year I was fortunate enough to photograph so many different types of sessions--from maternity and newborns, to boudoir and horse shows, to weddings and engagements. Below are some of the highlights of what I saw through the lens in 2015 (in no particular order). Some of the photos are my personal work (you'll notice an abundance of animal photos!), which is something I strive

Laura & Dave Wedding

Laura and Dave were married on a stunning, hot and sunny day back in June. They exchanged their vows in the beautiful Our Lady of Assumption church in Brentwood Bay and then we adventured off to Sidney for some photos by the ocean. Highlights included stopping at the corner store for some cool beverages before continuing our trek through the town towards the shore with many a passerby stopping to say their congratulations!   Laura

Meaghan & David–Bear Mountain Wedding

You might remember Meaghan and David from their engagement session, which you can check out here. These two were up for everything!   Their wedding day was filled with so much joy and laughter and happy tears. Bear Mountain provided a stunning wedding venue and while the morning started out a bit grey the clouds burned off and the sun came out in full force in time for the ceremony. We travelled up the mountain
