I have been looking forward to this wedding since I had the pleasure of capturing Jenn and John in front of the blooming wisteria wall at God’s Mountain Estate. Jenn & John have consistently managed to give me happy chills with the experiences we have gone through together. We have had some crazy coincidences along this journey and I can’t help but think that sometimes the universe has big plans. When Jenn was a little girl she always dreamed of getting married in front of their family’s wisteria, not knowing this before I choose to shoot their engagement session at God’s Mountain Estate in Pentiction, Jenn was excited when she saw these purple blooms at the location. She also jumped …Read More
I have been lucky enough to find myself living in one of the most beautiful places in Canada, photographing some of the sweetest people you could ever hope to meet – and this event had a LOT of wonderful people.
One of those wonderful people was Yuriko, she runs Vintage Origami – a styling company here in Kelowna BC. The outrageously talented Yuriko was inspired by a classic French farmers market and she executed it with grace. Honestly one of my favorite themes as I love everything French. From gingham napkins to custom brush lettered calligraphy, Vintage Origami brought together a perfect baby shower for Max.
I was so fortunate to cover the photo booth for Tori’s baby shower as …Read More
Sanctuary Gardens is perfect anytime of the year, but August is sunny, warm, and bright. It is truly a perfect location for your summer wedding. If your day turns a little gray fear not, because with the new addition of the “Rose Room” Sanctuary Gardens has you covered in any weather condition the Okanagan can throw at you.
I am so blessed to be a photographer that has access to such great Kelowna wedding venues. Every time my husband and I photograph up at Sanctuary Garens we look at each other and say “let’s get married again – it’s so beautiful here!”.
My bride Kasi & her groom Wilson were as sweet as they come. Wilson was so attentative towards …Read More
Being a Kelowna Wedding Photographer means that I get to meet so many loving couples. I instantly connected with Cayley & Adam – they are one of those couples that when you meet you know that they will be together forever.
The history of the Hotel Eldorado is remarkable; it is an essential landmark of Kelowna’s heritage and is an absolutely stunning locale for both wedding ceremony and reception. There are plenty of nooks to steal away for some private photos, despite the bustling restaurant and Boardwalk.
The couple opted to do a First Look, which allowed us to get some awesome shots before the wedding, and gave the bride and groom a moment to relax before saying their I-Do’s. …Read More
Mimi, my bride-to-be, had a very particular vision in mind for her photo shoot and my regular 1 hr engagement session wasn’t going to cut it. After discussing with Mimi her ideal Okanagan engagement photography session I set out to find the perfect props & settings. I managed to sorce out a vintage row boat in Lake Country, a horse and a Kelowna vineyard where I was able to take an aerial shot of the Okanagan vines, the lake and to top it all off – those picturesque mountains. Since I only take on one shoot per day I have the flexibility to make a photo session longer or shorter if the need arises.
Both Kenny and Mimi wore traditional outfits …Read More
Jenn & John | God’s Mountain Estate & Family Orchard | Penticton & Summerland BC | Engagement Photography
This beautiful Okanagan orchard engagement session truly started the year off right! This fun couple came all the way up from Vancouver just to have their engagement photos taken and boy was it worth it! Jenn & John were my first couple to have photos taken up at the breathtaking God’s Mountain Estate in Penticton BC. We were super lucky with our timing because we were one of the few people who caught the brilliance of the “wisteria wall” and the blossoms in the orchard were also in full bloom! Everything from the romeo & julliet balcony to the sun peaking through the trees in the orchard, this engagement was one of the more romantic photo shoots I have done …Read More
I met with Kailey & Cole in the lounge of The Hotel Eldorado; the venue where they will be getting married in 2017. Kailey and I ordered that same drink and we all laughed about the simple things in life – I knew that this was going to be a great engagement shoot.
Oh boy was I right! Kailey & Cole had the most fun, loving connection with each other. There was so much laughter, dancing and snuggles it was hard to call it a day when everything was done.
Kailey wore an adorable blue and white striped dress that she had picked up from a trip in New Orleans – Cole’s outfit complimented hers perfectly, these two definitely had …Read More
Part of being the best photographer you can be is by learning, experimenting, and challenging yourself to try new things. So that’s why when I saw that Fiona Hook from Image Studios was offering a class on family, maternity and newborns I jumped on it. Fiona is truly a great person, warm, inviting and informative – the perfect combination for a photography instructor.
The day started at 10:00am with introductions of the other students, where they were from and how they got into photography. You all know my story, but it was interesting hearing everyone else and what they were hoping to gain from Fiona’s knowledge of studio based family, maternity & newborn portraits.
Once the beautiful little baby girl …Read More
Their are so many details that can occupy the space in the reception hall; everything that represents your tastes and personality. Flowers can play a small role in your wedding or they can play a huge one. They can be understated or they can be all encompassing. I for one love, love, love (LOVE) flowers and incorporate them into my every day life as much as possible. Keep in mind that when it comes to weddings, flowers can often break the bank, but if you’re crafty you can have the bouquet of your matrimonial dreams. This is just a little motivation to get you adding your own personal touch to your wedding.
Always consider what’s in season and readily available …Read More
So as you all know from reading A Photographer in Paris Part 1, Jake and I made a trip to Paris for our 10 year anniversary.
Jake and I did all of the touristy things of course, but some of our favorite things were not on the tops of those “10 best places in Paris” lists. We loved the Musee d’Orsay and we had a dinner in a little restaurant off the beaten path that almost had Jake in tears it was so good.
The Printemps was an amazing place to spend a few hours. High end shopping, all the top luxury brands in one amazing mall. The roof top has a panoramic view of the city. It didn’t cost …Read More
