Sarah + Nick // ENGAGED! // Salt Spring Island

"I LOVE EVERYTHING about what you are describing about their wedding day...Floral crown station??! Food trucks and multiple live musicians? PINCH. ME. Plus they are the cutest couple ever AND he is holding a lucky. I think we will get along, just fine!" Was my response to Emma McCormick's Creative's email this past April when she was inquiring about wedding photography coverage for Sarah + Nick's backyard wedding. Sarah + Nick did not disappoint. He even brought a lucky.

Yishan + Andrew // ENGAGED! // Tofino, BC

Yishan + Andrew braved the elements with us for an engagement session while on a little get-away in Tofino! We started the session over warm coffee and donuts in a cozy corner booth at Rhino Coffee. Yishan + Andrew cuddled and laughed and enjoyed their treats, sharing details of their family (her's are in China and his in Florida) how they met working for Sea Span in Vancouver, plans for their July wedding and their obsession with Earnest Ice Cream. As the story goes Andrew arranged a private "tasting" for new Earnest flavours for Yishan and surprise her with a beautiful diamond ring! We shot at iconic Storm in downtown Tofino before heading into the forest and out to the beach. The weather was wild as we were witnessing a Typhoon in Tofino, with big waves and big tides. We stuck to higher ground and rocky points to capture some beautiful memories for this oh-so-happy couple!

Kyla + Mike // MARRIED Quamichan Lake, BC

I met Kyla + Mike last summer over Drumroaster's coffee shortly after she saw wedding photo's I did for her highschool classmates online. "We had to meet you right away!". What I found in that Cobble Hill coffee shop was two of the sweetest souls. Kindness, steadiness, nervous laughter and grace poured out of them during our brief coffee date. I knew that their wedding day would be nothing short of incredible. So we talked about how they met (Music Festival in Pemberton involving the Tragically Hip and first kisses), we talked details of their wedding day plans on a private property on Quamichan Lake, first looks and mountain top portraits where they got engaged in Maple Bay. We talked about their excitement to relocate back to Vancouver Island (last Winter) and the adventures they would have in Nicaragua. I knew I liked these two, the kind of couple I walk away from and think to myself "we should be friends".

Ashley + Dan // Married // Prince George, BC

This July took Meg + I to Prince George, BC for what may have quintessentially been the most beautiful designed wedding of the season! When Ashley contacted me last year she said "We are having a barn wedding Rustic/Chic style. Though the barn may be the only rustic part. No burlap, think chandeliers and silk instead". HELLO. BRING ON THE SILK!

Heather + Ryan // Engaged!

I met up with Heather + Ryan at the Red Arrow Brewery in Duncan. Both of them lovers of craft beer I thought it was the perfect place to get started on our session! What a great venue, and the beer flights they picked hit the spot. These two met at work at the Laurel Point Inn. After returning to work after taking some time off to travel Heather "noticed" a new face, who just happened to be tall-dark-and-handsome. The grapevine confirmed for her that Ryan was in a relationship...c'est la vie she thought. Fast forward 2 years and Heather is finishing her schooling and getting back to work full time at the Laurel. A few more random hallway run in's with Ryan filled with light chatter and humour. On one occasion he left her with a flattering comment. Causing some heart flutters + confusion for Heather but instilled a confidence that Ryan was now single. Later confirmed by the grapevine! Fast forward a few months and they were taking their first trip together and making plans for the future.
