Here is something a little different. We had a call from a mother on the North Shore saying that she loved our Wedding photography and how would we feel about photographing her daughter’s 20th Birthday Party. We have photographed plenty of events in the past, especially for families that we’ve captured weddings for, but this small party for a group of girlfriends at the house was just a little different. The event was very intimate, which created some extra challenges for capturing the event in a non-obtrusive, photo-journalistic style. When there are less than 10 people in a small room it can be more difficult to be inconspicuous! But we figured it out pretty quickly and captured some great shots that create a fascinating social record of the event.



“Happy Birthday!”


Great new party shoes!


Martinis and Margaritas…yum!

Happy Birthday Simone and thanks for having us be part of your 20th birthday celebration.

Last year we received a phone call from Beth who announced to us her engagement to Dan. We were so excited for them!!! They are good friends of ours- Steff and Beth grew up together and we got to know Dan really well at our wedding in Cuba a few years back. We nervously waited to hear the date they had chosen and thankfully we had the date still open and they asked us to be their wedding photographers! Now, we were even more excited, because we know that as wedding photographers we get to spend a lot of time with the bride and groom on their wedding day and this time its with long time friends! We feel so lucky to be a special part of their day.

We went over to Victoria for their engagement photo session and wandered around downtown Victoria having fun, walking around and taking pictures. At one point we were on Government Street in Victoria with all the tourists staring and anxiously wondering if Beth + Dan were celebrities!





We had a great time photographing you both and we are really looking forward to what is sure to be a fabulous Victoria wedding in July!

This Spring we were privileged to be a part of Nadia and Salil’s small, very relaxed and touching civil wedding ceremony, right by the sea at Cadboro Bay in Victoria. Here are a few wedding photographs after their seaside wedding ceremony. Nadia and Salil will have their full and vibrant wedding celebration in India this summer.

Over the years we have seen some pretty amazing wedding dresses in Canada and the UK, but here is a dress design with something a little different. We recently came across a very unusual competition; to make a wedding dress out of toilet paper!!! Anyhow, without giving too much away, check out the article here.

We’re not sure though how wedding dresses made from loo roll would fair here in rainy Vancouver. I think the dress designers here would need to come up with something a little better suited for the climate. I think we can flush the practicality of this dress idea right down the toilet! 🙂
