To announce at your “engagement party” that tonight is actually going to be your wedding day, is certainly a very exciting way to get your family and friends screaming, whistling and hollering!

And that’s exactly what Brette and Ricardo did!

When Ricardo announced that they were all at Steamworks Uber Lounge for his and Brette’s surprise wedding, the room erupted with fantastic cheers.

After his announcement, all the guests walked next door into The Atrium, that is part of Gastown’s Landing Building. Since the energy was high from their surprise, everyone had an amazing time, including us!

Congratulations to Brette + Ricardo!


Jolene and Oliver’s engagement session may have been a very wet and rainy day engagement photo session, but it certainly didn’t dampen the mood or the smiles. Our engagement photo session with with these two foodies, started at their favourite sushi restaurant, Kishimoto on Commercial Drive. The sushi was gorgeous and creative and delicious! I think that’s certainly where the smiles started! Then afterwards, under large umbrellas, we headed outside for a lovely walk at nearby Trout Lake.

I love happy mail!

Today we received a lovely card in the mail from Natasha, one of our brides from last season and here is what she said. So nice! 

“Thank you for making our wedding day and engagement photos such a great experience. Your ease and ability to make us feel so comfortable in front on the camera was much appreciated. We are so grateful to have you both take photos for such an important life event for us.” Natasha + Mike

We delivered soooo many beautiful wedding albums just before Christmas to our couples, that I wanted to share even just one with you, so you can see just how lovely they are. So much work goes into these albums, that both Justin and I are very proud of all our wedding albums. 🙂

I find them all so beautiful and elegant. They are such a perfect way to complete a couples wedding day story in a timeless way that they can enjoy forever. They will always be able to open a book, curl up on the couch and enjoy their photos. While, somehow to me, it’s just not the same sitting next to a laptop and looking at photos, which is why I guess, it partially makes a custom wedding album feel so special: longevity, quality and how you can comfortably relive the day costing up together or sharing with family of all ages.

Here are a few pages from Kate + John’s elegant wedding album from this past 2014 season.
