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
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
This little guy is my friend’s 2nd child and I was so excited to photograph the cutie pie in my new studio! He was a perfect little sleeper and he even let us go full commando!
I picked up this adorable handmade little lion bonnet just for this studio session and I am glad that I did. May this beautiful little baby be brave in all things in life!
I also love my little newspaper print wrap because it’s so neutral and will go with anything – plus it’s super cute “read all about it!”
At the end of the session if Mama and Papa are feeling up for it I always try to snag a few photos in a …Read More
I always get super excited when I get an inquiry for a September wedding because that’s the month that I married the love of my life (and best friend) Jake. So when Meagan & Brian told me that they were getting married at the Historic O’Keefe Ranch in Vernon in September I intently knew that this wedding was going to be a photographer’s dream.
O’Keefe Ranch is an awesome wedding venue that lends itself to a variety of shooting locations, with an overall rustic appeal. The little white church is as charming as it is old.
The girls got ready at The Castle at Swan Lake. Their room had a gorgeous loft that gifted us with tons of natural light. …Read More
I’m so honored that Kelly and Brian chose me to capture this quaint Okanagan elopement at the Summerhill Winery in Kelowna BC. This was the first elopement that I have been lucky enough to photograph, and I must say it was amazing. Those of you that know me are aware that I love all of the details, tablescapes, and floral arrangements of a typical wedding. I love families coming together to celebrate all the wonderful couples I photograph, the dancing, the music, all of it. As special as those big days can be, it’s refreshing to be a part of something…simpler. When you boil it down, all you really need is your partner, your marriage license, and your two closest …Read More
I love being an Okanagan Photographer because it allows me to do these super romantic picnic engagement sessions at places like Cedar Creek Winery, with wonderful couples like Pam and Jeff.
Pam & Jeff had a sweet and intimate picnic among the vines for their Summer engagement session, including a 2014 bottle of Cedar Creek Estate Winery Gewurztraminer and a loaf of locally baked French Bread. Accompanied by their adorable Jack Russel Terrier named Piper, Pam and Jeff wanted to capture a piece of the Okanagan for their engagement before they traveled to Newfoundland for their wedding.
We could see some heavy clouds slowly inching across the lake as the shoot went on, but it allowed for some perfect golden …Read More
