I'm a wedding and portrait photographer living in Vancouver, BC with my husband Randy.  I photographed my first wedding when I was only 17 years old - and I've photographed over 200 weddings since! I am an avid bookworm, lover of green tea, pretty nail polish & my Labradoodle Harley. Thanks for visiting!

I love reading and I’m passionate about more and more of our generation becoming readers! If you don’t know where to start, pick up one of my favourite reads of 2017. And if you’ve read any of these, I’d love to know what you thought. Enjoy!

In Shock: My Journey from Death to Recovery and the Redemptive Power of Hope

“In Shock is a riveting first-hand account from a young critical care physician, who in the passage of a moment is transfigured into a dying patient. This transposition, coincidentally timed at the end of her medical training, instantly lays bare the vast chasm between the conventional practice of medicine and the stark reality of the prostrate patient.” –Amazon

2017 was an amazing year in my business. Crazy how time flies.

Still makes me shake my head how the girl learning her camera in between high school classes at 16, went on to shoot her first wedding at 17… and that girl is me! I dropped out of university after only one semester at 18, determined to keep my growing photography business a living, breathing thing.

Ten years later, I’m still going, and it’s crazy to me. Who picks their career at seventeen? I didn’t set out to do this, honestly – I just stumbled upon a job I love, something that was a challenge, provided autonomy in my schedule and I stuck with it each year as I continued to enjoy it.

Maddy & Ryan’s wedding day was an amaaaazing day. I had been looking forward to this day, well, basically before M+R even booked me, or I knew they were engaged. I’ve known M+R for nearly 4 years now, and it was so clear to see from the beginning of their relationship, they were meant to be together for life. They’ve faced a lot of challenges over the last handful of years together–cancer in Maddy’s body, anxiety, and a break-up.

Through it all, they have had immense joy – both individually and together as a couple. Maddy and Ryan are giving, caring, fun-loving people and a clear match even five minutes after you meet them. I’m honoured they chose me as their photographer – it was a total JOY to capture their wedding day.

Timeea and Chris‘s wedding day was so beautiful. When I think of their day the word that comes to mind is family. Actual family and friends that feel like family. All of the friends in Timeea and Chris’ wedding party attend the same Romanian church in Abbotsford. It was through this same church community Timeea and Chris got to each one another better and fell in love. Sometimes weddings mean a whole bunch of separate circles on the guest list meeting one another – this wedding felt like family coming together with more family. I loved that.   Timeea’s day started early. When I arrived around eight thirty to start getting ready photos, her hair and makeup were done, and the groomsmen showed up just a few minutes after! Within a few minutes of my arrival, Timeea was getting into her wedding dress to meet Chris for the First Look outside the front doors of her parents’ home. (I loved their First Look.)   We were nearly 25 minutes ahead of schedule, so the wedding party made their way to Swaneset Bay Resort for portraits! Because we arrived early, of course we started photographing early and looking back? A total God thing! We had about 25 minutes to photograph with no rain, only overcast skies. Shortly after that mark, it started to sprinkle and we photographed a bit faster. We drove a few minutes down to the road to another portrait location with only Timeea and Chris and this is when it started to pour. Windy gusts of sideways rain.   Timeea and Chris held umbrellas for some photos but were completely down to throw them to the side when needed. After about 3 minutes of furious shooting on the road, the rain started pouring! We all ran as fast as we could to our cars, throwing umbrellas in front of us. I was so thankful for T+C’s willingness to get a little wet in the rain–and thankful for the generous timeline that allowed an hour to ‘rest’ pre-ceremony and dry off! (I would never send my couples into the rain immediately before a ceremony.) It’s a fun memory I’ll always have from this day!
