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!

Brandon and Belinda met during their first week of school at BCIT. They were enrolled in the same program of only 80 students, and ended up in the same set of 20 students who would complete the 2.5 year program side-by-side. Brandon remembers seeing Belinda on orientation day, across the room. He said it sounds cliche, but he remembers thinking she had an amazing smile and was the most beautiful woman he had seen! 

That weekend, Brandon was playing ice hockey and cut off the top of his lip. (Yeah, you heard right. When I saw this in their questionnaires, I had to ask more.) He needed 33 stitches to sew the lip back on. (Crazy.) I bring this up, because, the next week he was back at school and says Belinda asked him (in the nicest way possible) what he did to his face. Hah!

So happy to have met this sweet baby Elizabeth! Her parents Jeff and Selena are past wedding clients of mine from 2016 and it was a joy to photograph their maternity session this Fall. A couple weeks ago, they contacted me about a newborn session for their 2-week old Elizabeth. She was almost 3 weeks old when we took these photos in their home. It was a windy, crazy weather day outside – but their home was nice and bright with light grey walls which made for gorgeous images of their sweet new baby! Enjoy!
