Mimi & Kenny | Cedar Creek, Bertram & Tower Ranch | Kelowna BC | Engagement Photography

January 30th, 2017 by

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 for both of their heritages as well as a couple more conventional outfits including a custom made red dress with an amazingly long and flowy train that made for some gorgeous movement in the photos.

It’s important to me, as a Kelowna engagement & wedding photographer, that I can bring my couples to the special locations around the Okanagan to showcase their love for one another in this beautiful place I call home.

I absolutely fell in love with Mimi’s “Sophia Webster” Rose Gold pumps with black flamingo pin heels! I mean could these shoes get any better?!

Courtney & Alex | Cedar Creek Winery | Kelowna BC | Engagement Photographer

October 8th, 2016 by

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 while Alex wore a dapper black suit. I love when my couples get really dressy for photoshoots! The couple purchased a bottle of the Cedar Creek’s amazing Gewurztraminer wine and shared a toast for their many years to come. Love these two!

Pam & Jeff | Cedar Creek Winery | Kelowna BC | Engagement Photographer

August 9th, 2016 by

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 hour lighting and a bit of reprieve from the hot August weather. We managed to take some amazing cuddly photos between the rows of grapes before the rain made it to the romantic Cedar Creek Winery. This candid photo shoot was a highlight of the year.

Pam and Jeff (and Piper) were so incredibly sweet and kind, they were no shortage of smiles, laughter and snuggles the entire time. You could see the love radiate from this small family and we hope to see them back in Kelowna again soon!

Mimi & Kenny | Cedar Creek Winery | Kelowna BC | Wedding Photographer

June 25th, 2016 by

Some of you may recall Mimi and Kenny’s engagement session (found here) that involved multiple outfits, several locations throughout Kelowna and Lake Country (including Cedar Creek Estate Winery), a horse, a vintage little sailing boat, and a very cute couple. It was an exciting challenge to accommodate Mimi and Kenny’s vision. The wedding was a lot more laid back but no less extraordinary.

The ceremony took place at Cedar Creek Estate Winery, which is always an amazing venue. Mimi wore a gorgeous couture wedding dress, while her bridesmaids wore complimentary blush & cream dresses, they were all stunning. Her bouquet was absolute perfection with an arrangement of Peonies, Roses, Eucalyptus, and Dusty Miller. Kenny wore a classic two-tone grey suit, and his groomsmen wore matching pants and vests.

After the ceremony the couple accommodated their guests with a cocktail hour including an oyster bar (courtesy of Cedar Creek) and Gorgeous Georgia’s Homemade Ice Cream who are based out of Penticton. I may be biased but more weddings need to have an ice cream cart; who doesn’t love ice cream?!!?

The wedding party and family portraits all took place at the winery overlooking the beautiful Okanagan Lake. The vineyards always lend themselves to stunning photos, with great dynamic lighting in a dreamy, romantic setting. Congratulations Mimi and Kenny!

Christina & Daniel | Cedar Creek Winery | Kelowna BC | Wedding Photography

August 10th, 2015 by

Christine and Daniel were just the sweetest couple you could ever meet! You could tell that they loved each other full-heartedly the second they saw one another at their ceremony. Friends and family gathered from all over the country to celebrate their love at one of Kelowna’s most breathtaking wineries; Cedar Creek Estates. The bride and groom exchanged vows with their pastor from Trinity Church, under the contemporary wedding arch, you really couldn’t ask for a better setting. Just when you thought things couldn’t possibly get any cuter with this couple, bubbles filled the sky when they walked down the aisle as man and wife.

This winery wedding was definitely one of my favorites this wedding season, and I thank Stephanie Whiting for allowing me to second shoot this wedding with her company Photography West.

All in all a great Okanagan wedding that I will treasure forever.

xoxo Jennifer

Jessica Lexi & Tucker | Tower Ranch | Kelowna BC | Lifestyle Photographer

June 27th, 2016 by

Jessica (or Jess as most know her) is a very talented individual and we met in the wedding industry when I was first starting out. We instantly bonded over the beauty of weddings and our love of animals, so working together for a lifestyle shoot was a no-brainer.

This stunning lady is as sweet and as country as they come. She is also an inspiring trades women! I was so excited to take photos of such a motivating beauty with her Border Collie named Tucker and her horse Lexi.

Jess wanted to celebrate the time that she has spent with her trusty companions. She was inspired by her grandmother’s simple yet flowy wedding dress and an organic floral crown that she was able to make just before the shoot.

Sourcing out a breathtaking location near Tower Ranch in Kelowna BC we were able to get some great shots as we cautiously watched the largest, darkest clouds roll across the valley, straight for us. It ended up being one of the largest storms all summer and we were lucky enough to finish our lifestyle shoot and have front row seats for nature’s powerful show.

Some of you might even recognize Jess’s horse Lexi, as she was a model for me with a sweet couple for their engagement shoot. So Lexi was a seasoned pro when it came to modeling for her lifestyle photography debut. You can check out the gallery here.

Someone might ask if there is any difference between a lifestyle photographer and a wedding photographer. In all honesty their really isn’t much difference because the way that I shoot is very emotionally based. Throughout any given wedding you switch between being a portrait, fashion, editorial, and lifestyle photographer. I make each different section of a day cohesive by making sure that the emotion is genuine and try to source out the best light possible.

Thank you Jess for allowing this lifestyle photographer a chance to capture your love of your dear friends, Lexi and Tucker.
