Brooke and Jared’s vintage chic wedding was filled to the brim with so many lovely handmade DIY wedding touches everywhere you looked! What they created was truly like no other wedding we had ever seen before! Brooke and Jared put their heart and soul into all the details. The list of wedding DIY they created was endless, but to name a few, they hammered spoons used as bookmarks in their cookbook wedding favours, they made a white picket fence shelf used as a tribute to their grandparents, made a birds nest ring pillow, a tequila tasting bar, a quirky wedding photo booth, many lace and twine wrapped mason jars centrepieces and sooo much more! It was rustic beauty done to perfection in an understated elegance. Their Oliver vineyard wedding was held at the beautiful and lush Stonehouse Vineyard in the heart of Okanagan wine country.

We wanted to share Mike + Jess’ Vancouver Gastown engagement photo session with you. When I think back to the session we had with them, I remember simply enjoying a summer evening walking around Gastown in their company. Easy and fun. Jess was nervous and anxious as the shoot started, but I certainly don’t see it the photographs, so I suppose she started to feel comfortable pretty quickly, which is great. We like to see that! It seems like many of the couples that choose us are nervous about having their photo taken and it always feel good to know that after a photo session with us, they are confident and inspired. Hope you enjoy the romance in these photos!

Every year we find ourselves lucky enough to be photographing a few Whistler weddings. M+C’s Fairmont Chateau Whistler wedding was held on the rooftop of the hotel. What a unique wedding ceremony location! Before their ceremony, we had a beautiful trek and photo session up in the mountains with them and their bridal party. It was actually quite funny to see summer hikers struggling to walk along (the easy) path, meanwhile here we all were with heavy photo gear and the whole bridal party in dresses and suits! Such troopers! 🙂

We love making albums for each of our clients, as each one becomes a truly unique finished work of art that reflects their story, emotions and beauty of their day. Here are just a few album layouts from their wedding in Whistler.

Dave is a photographer.
And Sandra is his girlfriend and therefore has a keen eye for photography and always has great photos taken of her.
So we felt honoured to photograph them and challenged!
We’ve known Dave and Sandra for many years, in fact I used to work with Dave when he worked as a photographer for Expedia. We had a short 20min Vancouver photo session with them the other day and here are a few of our favourite photographs that Justin and I took of them.

We recently had a lovely Vancouver sunset engagement session with Christina and Mike in English Bay.We met up with them just before the sunset and had a leisurely walk on the beach, chatted lots and simply had a nice easy relaxed engagement session with them. We can’t always plan for great sunsets, but on this evening, we were all treated to a gorgeous Vancouver sunset! Yippee! Since many of the guests at their wedding are coming from the US or New Zealand, I’m sure Christina and Mike will be happy to share these photos highlighting some of the city they have chosen to be their new home. Oh, and of course, some photos of themselves too!
