Stephanie + Dan// Dunbar Baptist Church + UBC Golfcourse Wedding

I think this was one of the prettiest weekends of the year here in Vancouver. It was Thanksgiving weekend when Stephanie and Dan got married at Dunbar Baptist Church; the sun was shining and the leaves were multiple shades of awesome.  The decor at the church was warm and cosy with pumpkins, fall leaves and candles all around. We then took advantage of the subtle fall sunlight and photographed Stephanie and Dan at Jericho Beach during the golden hour. It couldn’t have been more perfect (and more golden with all the beautiful gold coloured leaves). I wish it was possible to plan all Vancouver fall weddings as cosy and dry!

Congrats to Steph and Dan! I wish you all the best

The Flecks// Generation photo session at Britannia Shipyard

 It is rare that I get to photograph a generation. Not only is this particular generation very special to me, but I have also had the opportunity to document various special occasions in their life since 2010. An engagement, a wedding, a newborn as well as this Generation session. (It’s also how I met my boyfriend of almost two years). It’s been so much fun getting to know them and watching their families grow. (They also have really good genes, which make for beautiful babies!) I am also in LOVE with their bay sweaters, which was a fun tribute to their grandfather who worked at the bay for 50 years!

Wedding Highlight Video 2012

Sneak Peek// The Zanatta Family

A couple of photos of the Zanatta family from last week. Enjoy!

Melissa + Dave // Rainy Vancouver Engagement

Originally we planned to take Melissa and Dave’s Engagement photos at Crescent Beach where they had their first date. However due to the heavy rain, we decided to head downtown and make use of the bridges and large over hangs to keep these two dry. While we were under the Burrard Street bridge, the rain stopped and the sky began to brighten up so we ran down to sunset beach to grab some shots before the sun went down. Nothing says Vancouver like the rain!

Congrats on your engagement you two!

Seonaid + Behrad// Royal Vancouver Yacht Club Vows

You may recognize this cute couple from awhile back. I photographed their engagement session in Olympic Village on a lovely cloudy day. Fast forward to a sunny summers day on September 8th 2012 and I am at the RVYC  in Jericho photographing their wedding. This is one of my all time favourite venues, and I do seem to photograph quite a few weddings here (3 this past summer), but I’m okay with that because you just can’t beat the location. Vows are exchanged right on the deck over looking the ocean, you have beach access for portraits and wall to wall sunset mountain views during dinner. It’s stunning. I also loved that this couple incorporated both persian and scottish touches to really make it their own. 

Sneak Peek// Winter Fun at the Cranberry Farm

 This was so much fun!

It was a wet, cold raining day but the Mays got right into the sea of Cranberries. Apparently it was quite cold even with the waders on, but they were excited to get some wintery, Christmas photos taken.

This photo definitely screams Christmas with the vibrant red cranberry backdrop! I can’t wait to show Kelly the rest tomorrow.

Ariana + Anthony// Garry Point Park + Mayfair Lakes Golf Course

 Ariana and Anthony tied the knot in Steveston at Garry Point Park. It was an absolultely gorgeous sunny friday in september; perfect for an outdoor ceremony by the water. Being a Friday, it was a late afternoon ceremony followed by more formal portraits at Garry Point Park and Steveston Village during the golden hour. The light was so beautiful in the Japanese garden.

I was so impressed by the choice of colours and the flowers that Ariana chose. The lilac dresses looked gorgeous with the bouquets, which Ariana and the bridesmaids made the night before. (so talented!)  I loved the pop of orange amoungst the lilacs! 

We arrived at Mayfair lakes Golf Course as the sun was edging behind the course. We managed to get a few shots before the sun escaped and before the dancing began.

Congrats again A+A!

Sweet little Emma at Britannia Shipyards

 You may remember one of the shots that I posted on my facebook fanpage awhile back with Emma in her cowboy hat. (I always ask parents to bring along something fun to add to the shoot!) Little emma was 6 months old when I photographed the session at Britannia Shipyards. 6 months old tends to be a good age because kids seem to be sitting around this time and therefore don’t always need their mommies and daddies in the shot.

I had a lot of fun photographing emma’s smiles. She’s adorable

Chris + Claire tie the knot at Stanley Park Pavilion

I had such a great time photographing Chris and Claire’s engagement photos that I was pumped to see them again at the wedding. They are just so genuine. On the day of the wedding we met at the rose garden in Stanley Park to unveil the first look before they exchanged vows at the Stanley Park Pavilion. It was really cute to see Claire running up behind Chris in her dress to surprise him. 

It was an overcast summers day where the sun kept sneaking its way out from behind the clouds. After the first look we took some photos around the park before Claire was whisked away with her dad in an old vintage car. Since the park is only one way, I think they had to circle the park before they arrived at the pavilion. Talk about an entrance! 

The night contnued inside the pavilion. I loved all the personal touches that they incorporated though out the day (especially the hula hoops!) as well as the specs of coral that we scattered about. (If you know me, you know that i’m slightly smitten with coral!) You should check out the beautiful flowers from the Flower Factory and the lovely decor planned by Alicia Keats Event Planning.

A simply stunning day!
