vancouver wedding photographers – hyperfocus photography » wedding photography as unique as you are

Gosh, as I sit down here to write this post and look back at these photos, I’m reminded of so many truly awesome, sweet moments from Emily + Brad’s wedding day. I posted a lot, I know, sorry. We just enjoyed their day so much and I feel like between Justin and my photographs, there were so many golden moments captured that we wanted to share.

Their whole wedding day took place in Yaletown, so we could easily walk from hotel to their wedding day photo session, to their wedding ceremony in Yaletown, all by foot. I love that, because it opened up opportunities of spontaneous random acts of kindness by strangers as we walked around. 🙂

Emily started the day with her girls getting elegantly ready at the Opus Hotel in Yaletown, meanwhile the guys weren’t far down the road, but had such a different getting ready experience at Barber and Co. getting all shaved up while playing billiards. Even the wee ring bearer got a quasi-shaving experience. 🙂 It was so sweet that he was included too!

Emily and Brad had their wedding day first look quietly in a small square in Yaletown and then we continued with their wedding party and then just the two of them for their wedding photo session in Yaletown. We then continued our easy stroll to their wedding ceremony at The Roundhouse.

Emily and Brad were so pleased to be married by their friend and pastor, Matt Menzel from Westside Church, who brought their faith to the forefront in a touching and personalized wedding ceremony with their friends and family around them. The red brick walls of The Roundhouse and the skyscrapers tall around them, made for a really unique urban backdrop to their cocktail party…along with the super tasty popsicle-cocktails they had!

Emily was truly a DIY bride who created so many details together with her friends. She made the bouquets (and so much more) and friends helped with etching the vases, making signage, her cake + cupcakes,  MC  etc were all done by friends! Oh and her cousin was her planner! Go team! (and i know I’ve missed so many other talented people who helped)

Emily and Brad had an impressive first dance which kicked off a great night of awesome moves for their great celebratory party!

Before heading over to Brock House to get married, Carly and Kyler’s wedding day started off in beautiful hotels in downtown Vancouver. When I arrived to photograph all 7 gals at the Fairmont Pacific Rim, I hadn’t expected to walk into such a calm, yet super fun and supportive group of women. High above the city with gorgeous views of Stanley Park, Carly and her bridesmaids had their makeup done outside on the balcony by Denise Elliott Beauty Co. Not a bad way to start the day ( and i think that part really helped with the calm!) Carly had a gorgeous stripe wedding dress by Hayley Paige, it was the kind of dress that screamed to have a super fun time! The guys each had real bow ties to tie and some managed, while others took advantage of the On-Call-Bow-Tie-Tying-Expert at the Four Seasons. I swear that man saved the day and kept the wedding on time!

At Brock House, Carly and her dad, proudly walked across the lawn to meet Kyler under the big oak tree to be married. It was a great ceremony by Vancouver Officiant and I say it was great because their ceremony had a lot of laughter which made their ceremony light, entertaining and engaging. In addition to photographing Carly + Kyler’s experience of getting married, we do love to capture the guests having an authentically awesome time during the ceremony too and their ceremony had that!

They had a cocktail hour on the lawn by the sea and during that time, we slipped way for a quick bride + groom photo session with just Carly + Kyler on the property at Brock House and caught some golden sunshine on Jericho beach for photos too.

Memorable wedding speeches were delivered, awesome Earnest Ice Cream was had by all and they danced the night away…..surprisingly to a lot of rap music (turns out Carly is a big fan!)

Several months ago, Kelsey + Andrew came by to pick up their wedding album. Sure, it was a super rainy, winter Vancouver day outside, but inside we forgot about it all, and simply enjoyed reliving their summer sunny wedding day in their beautiful and elegant wedding photo book. It was also a really lovely visit, as they shared with us many of the reasons why they chose us to be their wedding photographers. Hearing that they felt they had received great value for all our hard work, passion and creativity, while blending in with their family personalities and capturing their wedding photos that they love so much, was so great to hear. It was our pleasure!

This was one very, very wet and rainy Vancouver engagement photo session.

Bessie and Eddie were cosy under their umbrella, as they should have been. Snuggling and enjoying each others company is certainly a nice way to spend with with your hubby/wife To-Be. We were however well prepared for rain and Justin and I got poured down upon and gleefully muddy. Normally we’d have rescheduled their engagement pictures, but since we were all there and their wedding was fast approaching, we thought let’s see how we do with this weather, it is Vancouver after all, and embrace the rain! And it all turned out great!

We spent most of their engagement photo session in Crab Park and enjoyed the serene space and calm park, despite being right in downtown Vancouver.
