I have wanted to photograph an engagement shoot during peach season for a while now and Stesha & Stephen gave me the opportunity to do so this fall. Stesha is a fashion blogger and a fellow photographer here in the beautiful orchard & winery filled Okanagan. I truly believe you can never go wrong with a little touch of French inspiration in any shoot. So freshly picked peaches, the perfect gingham dress and makeup done by none other then the super talented Bri Stein made for the perfect accents to this adorable orchard engagement shoot. I made a “french market inspired” bouquet and I used floral stems picked fresh that morning from Lavender and Lace – this Kelowna florist grows her …Read More
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
This photo shoot was a focus the design and decor, as Vintage Origami asked me to snap some film of this stunning and intimate elopement. The wedding party was only 6 people, and took place at Mackie Lake House in Vernon, BC. Every single detail was perfect: The canopy and wreaths utilizing hop vines was something I’d never seen before and so romantic! The rest of the florals we breathtaking; the floral arrangements that “Crocus Floral” did for this wedding won the 2017 BC Wedding awards for “Best wedding florist overall” utilizing local apple branches with fruit still on the branches.
The handmade arrangements paired wicker chargers and miniature rosemary wreath place-settings flawlessly. Terracotta silk & velvet ribbon bows were …Read More
Kailey & Cole | Hotel Eldorado & Quails Gate Winery | Kelowna BC | Fine Art Film Wedding Photographer
Kailey and Cole were an absolute joy to photograph on their wedding. When we first met to do their engagement photo shoot it was obvious these two love birds were made for each other.
The couple chose to do a first look on the board walk outside the Hotel Eldorado, where the ceremony took place. It’s a beautiful location that is a personal favorite of mine. The roof top is picturesque, the reception room is grand, and the building has many secret places to sneak off to, to grab some intimate shots with the bride and groom, away from prying eyes.
Kailey was flawless in her Stella York dress, which was not traditional white, but had a soft pink tone …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
Just because it’s cold outside doesn’t mean we can’t find ways to get all warm and fuzzy, and this winter family shoot was chock-full of the warm and fuzzies. I met Natalie at a girl’s night at Moxie’s here in Kelowna. She was one Yuriko’s (Vintage Origami) past brides and was in need of a night out. We hit it off right away and immediately stated to plan a winter family shoot.
We met at a location that the family frequently visits to go on hikes.
It’s rare to have a perfectly happy baby the entire duration of a photo shoot, but this little one was an absolute angel – smiling the whole time. Even though it was a little …Read More
Courtney and I had the pleasure of working together in the past when I was still a graphic designer for a local Kelowna company. She was always a ray of sunshine and although we both no longer work together I was so excited when she contacted me and asked me to be her wedding photographer!
The engagement photo session took place at Cedar Creek Estate Winery. Fall was setting in and Mother Nature gifted us with some cloud coverage that gave us the perfect even lighting us photographers lust after. Deer came grazing through the vines behind Courtney and Alex to photobomb the session quickly before making their way through the vineyard. Courtney wore an elegant black dress with heels …Read More
