WENDY + MYLES | 08.25.18 | Vancouver Wedding Photographer

On the first rain seen this August, I was honoured to capture the ceremony of Wendy and Myles.  It has been an incredibly hot summer, filled with beauty but also destructive fires and smoke.  The morning of the wedding we finally saw a little rain!!  Although  many couples would be upset by the wet weather after so much sunshine… it was the opposite for this family.  The damp morning would clear the skies of smoke and help dampen the forrest first, making way for regrowth, new beginnings… perfect way to begin a life together!

Of course it wouldn’t be a wedding without a few hiccups.  The ceremony location was to provide some seating, but in a short period of time you can see family all arriving with chairs.   I love seeing things come together like this!  It’s what a wedding day should be about.  Family, friends and coming together to witness a marriage, but also to show we are all here together to help support each other!

When I met Myles and Wendy, they both said that the most important thing for them is their family.   They did not want a lot of photos or time spent on them, but to capture the people they love with them.  This is what we did!!  Capturing a wedding isn’t always about spending hours following them around.   This was perfectly captured in only 3 hours.  The ceremony, family and a few of the reception to send them into the evening of fun!

Please raise your glass with me to celebrate the life these two have just embarked on!  Congratulations!

A few days ago I was really looking forward to meeting these two new precious little humans… but of course life with a new baby doesn’t always go as planned, I can only imagine it with two of them!

So here we are, a few days later and a little more refreshed.  These two little humans are just 7 days new and have yet to officially be named.  That didn’t stop us from creating some precious keep sakes to look back on.  Their ‘big brother’ (he’s only just turned 2!) is clearly in love with his babies.  As he waited and played patiently in the studio, we would get it all ready for him and of course one of the babies would have other plans… so as you do with young children, you roll with it.

I also loved that I was advised that the young man would likely be a handful and we should capture him first… well of course in true fashion (meaning making parents into liars) that little boy slept peacefully – yet his little sister was often awake and stirring.  There was one set up that had great plans for them wrapped… but she pushed out of hers and decided that latching onto his head was a much better idea.

I’m so happy to share these with all of you and hope they bring a smile to your evening!

Bubbly Baby Clara | 4 Months | Surrey Baby Photographer

It was really no surprise to me how well this session went… it wasn’t that long ago that I met Clara’s big sister Roslind.  She was the happiest little baby ever!   This family has so much joy and happiness to share… I just loved every minute with them.   Two very lucky little girls to have each other and such awesome parents!

Check out the fun we had in the studio.  Reading a book as we did with big sister’s session and of course some giggles and snuggles to top it off!

LINDA + SKYLAR VANCOUVER ELOPMENT | Vancouver Wedding Photographer

Yesterday I had the absolute honour to be a part of something so special and intimate for two totally deserving friends.  It was just 4 of us and a few patrons at the restaurant to witness a lifetime of love and happiness embracing into marriage and opening a new chapter.

7 Years ago Linda would visit the Mercedes dealership to have her vehicle serviced… it was there that she first met Skylar.  She had a beautiful baby boy at the time and likely had no idea that 7 years later she would be marrying this man!  They went on their first dinner date to Chambar in Vancouver.  A beautiful, quaint little restaurant downtown.  Yesterday afternoon we met there again to marry them and officially call them Husband and Wife!  That morning they had asked a friend to give them a ride into town, but what arrived was of nothing other than a Mercedes and driver to send them off in style.  Linda feels it was by chance, but clearly it was fate once again showing them that this is truly meant to be.  They arrived to Chamber around 3:00pm yesterday afternoon.  Ryan, the officiant, and I joined them inside.  We set aside a small area of the back of the restaurant; where while other patrons were dining and the restaurant was busy setting up for the evening dinners service Linda and Skylar where sharing rings and saying their I do’s! It felt as if we were the only people there, it really was so special.  At the moment they were married there were soft whispers of congratulations from the staff passing by and others in the restaurant.  It was perfect.  I was a witness for them as well as the restaurant hostess we had just met.

To top off this amazing surprise of theirs… they are also expecting a baby to join the family in a few months!!!  So many blessings for them in 2018!

We went outside to capture a few more images, but it wasn’t long before we sent them back inside for dinner and to enjoy the rest of the night together.

Please join me in wishing these two an amazing life together and sending them off today on a fantastic European cruise!!
