Lynn | Portraits | White Rock and Vancouver Portrait and Wedding Photographer

the best part of having a photographer friend in the business is that you can swap services! a couple weeks ago, lynn, from pink ruffles photography and i went to white rock at the lovely stewart farmhouse to capture our new headshots for our brands.  lynn specializes in boudoir photography and has a beautiful in home studio. i was so excited with the results from her session, she is just super hot!  lynn also captured my first headshots back in 2010, yes far too long for me to wait so my new ones will be ready soon!

always a pleasure hanging out with you!

Joey+Ruth’s Wedding | Executive Inn Burnaby | Deer Lake Park Weddings | Burnaby and Vancouver Wedding Photographer

new beginnings, good fortune and joy. these are just a few of the symbolic meanings with the release of the butterfly.

set up by a friend, joey+ ruth were inseparable from the time of their first phone call to their first date. he proposed in front of caesar’s palace in vegas just over a year ago.

joey+ruth’s wedding this past july at the executive inn hotel in burnaby was purely magical. when she started singing to him as she walked down the aisle, my heart was so happy for them. their butterfly themed wedding was perfectly planned right down to every colorful butterfly that hung above the trees as they said their i do’s.  it was such a beautiful moment when they released the live butterflies at the end of the ceremony.  we headed to deer lake park for portraits and enjoyed every minute of the 30+ heat wave that happened on their day.

wishing you good fortune, joy + love always…it was a pleasure and honor to capture your beautiful day.

xoxo

Jason+Colleen’s Wedding | 100 Mile House BC | Lac Des Roches Resort | 100 Mile House and BC Interior Wedding Photographer

i love the city, but i’m a country girl at heart. from the peaceful sounds of nature to the beautiful countryside, i love going home to 100 Mile House and when i get to take my passion on the road and shoot a wedding too, well that just makes my heart smile.

jason+colleen are the most down-to-earth, fun lovin’ couple and it was an honor to document their day. they got married at lac des roches resort, a picture perfect vision of what the cariboo represents.  with vendors contributing from all over bc, the day was spectacular and a bride in cowboy boots, well that is just the icing on the cake.

it was a true pleasure capturing your love, wishing a lifetime of lazy days by the water, cozy fires, love and happiness…

xoxo
