Randy+Rachel’s Wedding | Queen Elizabeth Park Celebration Pavilion | Vancouver and Richmond Wedding Photographer

in a quiet little sanctuary in the middle of a park, randy+rachel’s wedding at the celebration pavilion just a few weeks ago was simply beautiful. you would never even notice there were hundreds of grads just steps beside them. the celebration pavilion might be one of my new favorite venues for ceremonies. all you could hear was the soft gently breeze, birds signing and one lucky couple exchanging forevers.

using queen elizabeth park as the backdrop for our portraits made for picturesque images. the reception was held at the riverside palace banquet hall where details of black and white accentuated the gorgeous space and enhanced the classic and elegant theme.

it was an absolute pleasure capturing your day and getting to know you both this past year.

wishing you both happiness + love always,

xoxo

The “B” Family | New Westminster Family Photographer

i love photographing families! i always leave room in my busy wedding schedule every year to ensure i get to capture the love of families. you may remember these two beautiful gals from my last week’s post with her surprise “mommy+me” session for father’s day. last week it was time to capture the whole family together and i could not be more thrilled with the results, big bold colors captured at our local community garden was the perfect location.  mom and dad also own lifetime eyecare in new westminster so if you need to get your eyes done, their team is amazing.

i am now booking family sessions for october and november so if you are thinking of having them done, spots are filing up quickly.

you are a beautiful family, thank you for choosing me to capture this special time.
