Fairmont Pacific Rim Wedding Photos

Anny and Jacky: July 15, 2017

Anny and Jacky had a beautiful wedding day at the Fairmont Pacific Rim this past Saturday! The day began with Anny preparing with her five lovely bridesmaids before the First Look with Jacky. The rooms at the Fairmont Pacific Rim are gorgeous and so easy to photograph in!

When Anny and Jacky saw one another for the first time, I loved their smiles and Anny’s immediate happy tears! After a few portraits near the hotel, we were off to Stanley Park for two different looks. Following portraits, there was a tea ceremony in the hallway of the Fairmont Pacific Rim, followed by the ceremony in the ballroom.

Crescent Beach Family Photos

The Holcombe Family!

I have to say, I’m impressed we pulled off this session in a month’s time! A few weeks ago, Cherril asked me at church what my session availability looked like for June. She wanted to get together her two adult kids, with their spouses and their 6 grandchildren!

We got to work planning – finding 4 available session dates with my calendar, matching them to the tide schedule that worked for the beach (high tide would not do!) and then matching those times to the work/life schedules of six adults. Like I said, impressive. ;) The weather cooperated beautifully and we had an amazing Tuesday night at the beach this week!

Timeea and Chris are getting married!

I knew I liked Timeea and Chris from their very first email to me back in January! They were planning a wedding for end of November, at Swan-E-Set, and Timeea included so many details about their vision for the day, their love story and what she loves about my work. We connected on the phone the week after and I got to know Chris and Timeea a bit through that conversation!

Six months has flown by and we met at eight o’ clock in the evening (you have to love late June nights in BC!) this past Monday night. Timeea and Chris met through their Romanian Baptist church in Abbotsford. Both Timeea and Chris were born in Romania and moved with their families to Canada as children. They first met at a different Romanian church and their parents knew one another through those connections.

Brix and Mortar Restaurant Wedding

Carrie and John: June 24, 2017

Carrie and John had a very specific vision for their wedding day: only their closest family and friends and a reception that prioritized people over events/schedule! They had a laid-back wedding day until Carrie started getting ready in the early afternoon. We started photographing at 3:30pm at the beautiful Opus Hotel (those awesome pink walls!) and the ceremony began at Brix & Mortar Restaurant around 5:00pm. 

John greeted guests and family as he waited anxiously for Carrie to arrive. When the music begin, you could see the joy and surprise on John’s face when Carrie entered through the dramatic black curtains at Brix & Mortar in her blush pink ballgown. It was perfect. Carrie and John read their vows, the same words, at the exact same time to one another. So cute!
