Jacqui & Coli are true foodies at heart so right away I knew we were going to be great friends. When planning their engagement session they told me that they liked fall colours and wine so I thought a charcuterie picnic amongst the fall foliage was the way to go.
The wine glasses were made and given to them as an engagement gift from a friend and they brought along a bottle of Hester Creek red wine that they had been saving for a special occasion. Every detail was attended to and they even matched their engagement outfits perfectly to the fall palette. Colin had a pop of red (socks) in his outfit to compliment his fiancé, and Jacqui chose …Read More

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
Kaitlin and Tyler met us at a secret location in Kelowna; a park with sprawling trees and a turtle filled pond. It’s a great little location with a variety of beautiful photo spots. It’s also a great place to bring a dog, when couples want to include their furry family members in their photos. Kaitlin and Tyler’s dog Zeppelin was looking dapper and freshly groomed for this engagement shoot. This amazing couple is also planning to let Zeppelin made an appearance in the wedding party photos on the big day.
We would later move to another location beside an apple orchard for a little Okanagan flair. While taking pictures a charismatic farmer showed up on a tractor, blasting music from …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
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
Kasi and Wilson are easily one of the most adorable couples I’ve been fortunate enough to photograph. This gorgeous engagement shoot took place amongst the sweeping tall grasses of Knox Mountain, in the heart of Kelowna, BC. There are few locations in the Okanagan that are so versatile and so convenient at the same time, being just minutes from Kelowna’s downtown core.
Kasi had a darling pink Eiffel Tower charm necklace which I loved (anything that reminds me of Paris is my favorite thing), that went perfectly with her flowy summer dress and her pink painted fingernails!
It’s always endearing when my couples bring their own personal artifacts to add to a photo shoot. It really makes it their own, …Read More
I live for a good love story. I get the all caps LOVE kind of feeling for the journey that my couples go through before I meet them. So when Meagan & Brian told me their story I think I actually squealed with joy over how adorable it was.
How They Met
It all started with a Christmas party and a coworker in need. Meagan is a registered nurse (pretty much Wonder Woman) and one of her fellow co-workers wanted to find someone to accompany her boyfriend’s friend to a firefighters Christmas party. There was no way that she was going to pass up the opportunity to hang out with a bunch of firefighters! So her co-worker sent this mystery …Read More
