This past summer, in the midst of wedding season chaos, I was itching to slow down and do something creative for myself, with only my expectations in mind. On a gorgeous summer evening at Golden Ears Provincial Park in Maple Ridge, the amazing talents of Caitlin J Makeup, Bridal Beginnings, Cassie Cakes, West Coast Heart Designs & Pure Magnolia came together to create one of my favourite shoots to date. I was VERY excited to learn that the shoot would be featured on Rocky Mountain Bride! You can view their blog post here.

Chloe & Chris, who actually got engaged shortly after shooting this, made for the most perfect models. They have such a natural love and they were so fun to capture.

Pure Magnolia, a unique wedding dress store in North Vancouver lent us a simple, yet dreamy 2 piece ensemble which consisted of a long flowing tulle skirt & a long sleeved lace top that was so classic in front & just a little bit sexy in the back!

Caitlin J Makeup, a very talented hair & makeup artist in Langley, lent her talents to doll up our “bride” for the day. To keep within the theme of the shoot, she went with soft & romantic hairstyle and a dark lip.

Bridal Beginnings… Larissa is never short of blowing me away. I’ve worked on countless weddings with her and I am always impressed, but on this shoot, she blew me out of the water. I had a vision for a dreamy forest shoot, but I never could’ve pulled this off without her amazing vision. Her decor and florals were flawless.

West Coast Heart Designs made us the stunning sign that was centred under the sweetheart table. Her flawless calligraphy & adorable quote were the perfect compliment to our table.

Cassie Cakes! AAAH! I’ve been to about 150 weddings and I haven’t seen a cake quite like that. She used bold colours, glowing gold geometric decor and floral accents to make the cake one of a kind.

Thank you so much to all you amazing ladies for bringing this shoot together. Thanks to Chloe & Chris for putting up with ALL our shenanigans and thank you so much Rocky Mountain Bride for featuring our shoot!

I was SO excited when Tom & Erica asked me to be the photographer for their Swaneset Bay wedding.  Not only are they one of the cutest and sweetest couples around, but they’ve been together forever AND … who doesn’t want to shoot at Swaneset?!  Swaneset Bay has to be one of the most stunning golf clubs around even though it poured rain through their entire ceremony, Bridal Beginnings didn’t miss a beat & made the indoor ceremony every bit as beautiful as outdoor would have been.

The colours, atmosphere & even the ever changing sky that day made Tom & Erica’s wedding one of my favourites.  The emotion on Toms face when he watched Erica walk toward him was almost tangible.

Tom & Erica… thank you so much for allowing me to capture this amazing day. I loved every minute of it.

I was so excited when Alyssa & Morgan asked me to drive up to Penticton to photograph their wedding at Painted Rock Winery. After getting ready at the gorgeous Penticton Lakeside Resort, we drove to the stunning winery where their ceremony and reception were held. I don’t think I’ve every seen such a gorgeous wedding venue. Some scary rain clouds followed us around all day, but we were fortunate to get the most stunning sunset out of it!  Alyssa & Morgan were absolutely glowing with love and adoration for another all day long.

Alyssa & Morgan, you guys were such a dream to work with. Thanks for having me! xx

I went to university with this stunning bride, so I was a little extra excited to photograph her Harrison Hot Springs Resort wedding.  Her wedding was stunning, emotional and had the most love I’ve ever seen in one day. After booking her wedding, we actually became quite close friends, which made photographing the day all the more fun for me!

The grooms reaction to her had me in tears from the get go. It was absolutely perfect. Harrison Hot Springs Resort offers endless beautiful backdrops for photos and oh my gosh the fooood. It was So good.

Carmen Tse rocked the hair & makeup.
Bridal Beginnings provided perfect flowers.
Aloha events ensured the day went off without a hitch.

I am finally sharing this stunning  Sea to Sky Gondola elopement in Squamish! I wish I could photograph more elopements, because these two absolutely melted my heart & reminded me why I love intimate moments so much. These two came all the way from Ontario to tie the knot in the stunning mountains that surround Squamish. Without friends and family, this day was about no one but them, and I thought it was absolutely perfect. It only took about fifteen minutes for me and the officiant to have tears in our eyes. Being in the presence of such a simple, sweet and pure love was so special & photographing them was amazing. The mountains definitely didn’t hurt!

I was SO happy to take wedding photos at Brock House in Vancouver for this gorgeous bride and her man. Brock House is an amazing wedding venue and one of the original gems in Vancouver. Marian & Tom chose the perfect spot for their summer evening wedding. The flowers, decor and the evening light were all flawless. I felt so lucky to photograph their wedding.  It was a night full of light hearted laughter, a few tears and SO much love and you can see, the couple looked amazing.

Marian & Thomas… thank you for trusting me and letting me be there for your special day.

I always love taking wedding photos at Fraser River Lodge, so I was of course ecstatic when Nichola and Brendan asked me to photograph their June wedding there. The attention to detail and DIY projects that went into this wedding were absolutely amazing. I’ve never seen a wedding quite like it. Nichola picked the most stunning colours and outstanding vendors to bring her outstanding vision to life. I had the best time photographing their day… from the stunning dress, to their perfect love, the day was flawless and full of character.

The vendors that made the day amazing:

I don’t think I can gush about this wedding enough. I’ve been in love with the Vancouver Rowing Club since I was a little girl, so when Kate told me she was getting married there, I felt absolutely ecstatic to finally photograph a wedding there!

After taking engagement photos at the Abbotsford Tulip Festival & getting to know Kate & Derek a little, I learned that they have an amazing love that is almost palpable and that Kate’s taste is damn impeccable! She brought together one of the most timeless & classic weddings I’ve ever seen and I am stoked to share it with you guys.

Weddings at Stanley Park are always beautiful, because lets face it, that stunning park in the heart of Vancouver just never goes out of style. Vancouver Rowing Club, Bridal Beginnings and Simplest Details and events brought Kates vision together flawlessly. I don’t think I’ve ever “OOOOOOOOOHed” (totally a word) so much in one day.  And do not get me started on the food… OH the food… I’m still thinking about it. Emelles Catering is without a doubt some of the yummiest food I’ve ever put in my mouth.

Kate & Derek…  thank you for having me. I loved every minute of it! That wedding was fresh, fabulous and seriously… Kate, you are a total babe.

The fricking fabulous vendors:
