We’d like to share a lovely afternoon lifestyle engagement session with Delia+ Michael who are super in love, giggle a lot and enjoy carefree days on Granville Island. We had a truly special afternoon with them and we are looking forward to their wedding in July. 🙂

On the day we had their session, there was a super low tide, which gave us the chance to go below the boardwalk and capture one of my favourite artful photographs of the day.

Since Delia + Michael are real foodies, we of course walked through the Granville Market and captured them just naturally spending time together, as they might on any day. So lovely, it makes me smile.

  • Colin Stacey

    Delia and Michael really look very natural nothing contrived and genuinly show affection for each other,their eyes and body language confirm this.It is most impressive ,they have not used glamour to distract you from the reality of the situation but honest pictures of a delighteful couple who clearly demonstrate their love and respect for each other.I particularly like the picture of the two of them walking towards the camera as natural as you can be with a camera around.These great shots will clearly put them at the top of the list.
    Good luck to you both Colin.ReplyCancel

Tracy and Sébastien’s wedding took place in the lovely covered courtyard at Brix Restaurant in Yaletown with so many of Tracy’s family in attendance, along with Sébastien’s family from Montreal. Their day had a nice relaxed pace to it and despite the light rains outside, everyone had a great time. Steff really enjoyed blowing the dust off of her French skills and chatting with Sebastien’s family.  We truly enjoyed being a part of their day.

brix_wedding_vancouver_04I just love this moment with Tracy’s sisters and her Mom helping her get ready.

brix_wedding_vancouver_ceremonyBeautiful Spring cherry blossoms from Tracy’s parents garden decorated the ceremony and her parents walked her down the aisle together, which was really sweet.

brix_wedding_vancouver_011Instead of clinking glasses for a kiss, Tracy + Sébastien asked their guests to sing a song…and lo and behold, one of the youngest guests at their wedding was the first to rustle up some courage and sang solo delivering a perfect performance, with swinging dance moves and all! He was great!! 🙂

Ok, we’ll admit it; we were excited to watch the Royal wedding today. What a stunning spectacle of opulence, beauty and decadence and all in celebration of the love and commitment between one man and one woman, wow! It is easy to see, watching the wedding today, how the wedding experience is really one of the greatest days of our lives. What a wonderful experience for a couple to be able to enjoy together in honor of each other.

With the Royal wedding being top-of-mind over the past few days, the two of us have been enjoying thinking of some of the great experiences that we’ve had photographing weddings in the UK. There is something wonderful about the history, the locations, the traditions and fashions that all make weddings there uniquely British. Here we have pulled out a small selection of photographs from a few British weddings to share with you that we felt captured something uniquely British. It all seemed very appropriate to do this today when so many of us have been ‘tuned in’ to the beautiful wedding between Kate and William.

  • Oh my goodness, I love these! Beautiful photographs and like you said, so much history!ReplyCancel

  • Wow! What stunning images, Steff & Justin. It must have been so fun working in the UK with all of the incredible history and their fantastic outfits! Thanks for sharing these!ReplyCancel

    Beautiful pictures!! Even better than the Royal wedding :).ReplyCancel

Our hyperfocus slideshows now have little clips of HD video to enhance our photographs!! And our clients just love it! Woo hoo!  We started doing this at the beginning of the 2010 wedding season and we’re super excited to continue providing this to our clients. (We wish we could have had this for our wedding 7 years ago!)

Creating short video clips during a wedding day is a really nice use of both my past experience with film and television production, as well as Steff’s film making experience and her education through the Vancouver Film School. These little touches of video add a little spice to the slideshow that gives it that something extra special and unique.

Cynthia and Paul’s beautiful wedding was a truly special day filled with a mix of both their cultures, their supportive friends and super nice family. We got along all so well and have such fond memories of their day, that we thought we’d share their slideshow with you.

And trust us, these slideshows are even more amazing when it’s your own wedding! 😉

    Brenden and I definitely loved the segments of video and how they added a little extra depth to the story of the photos.

    Everytime we view our slideshow we smile when the brief clip of Brenden spinning me follows the photos of our first dance.ReplyCancel

A few weeks ago we got together with Marianne and Tom for their engagement photo session while they were visiting from New York City. They wanted to have their session in a natural environment and we suggested Lighthouse Park (one of our favourite places to be!), because it is quintessentially West Coast and couldn’t be more different than where they live. We all enjoyed a nice and relaxing session in such a beautiful park amongst the giant trees in the forest and the serene views over the sea. We are really looking forward to their wedding this summer.
