I met Jillien and Murray just by chance on the day that Murray proposed. I was walking my dogs along the beach and it was quite possibly the one time that I didn’t have my camera on me (I have it in my purse 90% of the time!) I had seen Murray get down on one knee and pop the question and regretted not having my camera with me. As I walked by the two of them Murray called out excitedly that they’d just got engaged! We began chatting and the connection was made then–it seemed meant to be that I would be their wedding photographer. I’ve also been blessed to photograph their maternity and newborn photos for their adorable son and now maternity photos for their second baby!
Their wedding day was a held on a sunny July day at Queen’s Park by the ocean in Oak Bay. We were lucky to have a chance to take some photos on a sailboat at the nearby marina and then we headed to Cattle Point for a few more photos. The reception was held at the UVic Club afterwards and after many fantastic and hilarious speeches, DJ Chris Poynter got the dancing going!
Congratulations Jillien and Murray! It’s been such an amazing journey with you two!
