Selena and Jeff were married this past Sunday at Riverway Golf Course Clubhouse in Burnaby! The day started at Selena’s parent’s home with a tea ceremony with close family members. It wasn’t my first time at the family home… as I photographed Selena’s sister Carmen’s tea ceremony just over two years ago for her wedding. This time, the roles were reversed and Selena was the bride and Carmen a bridesmaid! When we arrived, the house was a flurry of activity, family members eating and laughing and waiting for the tea ceremony to begin.
Kristen and Connor: October 15, 2016
As Kristen and Connor’s wedding weekend in Whistler approached, the Lower Mainland forecast was ominous. Every weather network was calling for heavy wind and rain and overall – terrible weather. We got to work the week before the wedding, brainstorming possible back-up locations and doing our best to ‘make the best of it.’ Kristen, of course, was hoping for a Fall wedding in Whistler to capture all of the beautiful colours and outdoor scenery in the mountain-town! When Saturday, October 15th arrived, the weather was much better than predicted and although we battled a little cold and rain, Kristen and Connor were total troopers. They were more than willing to be sprinkled with a few raindrops for beautiful photos and I can’t thank them enough for that!
Jady and Doug are getting married!
Jady and Doug met for the first time about six years ago through their church in Coquitlam when Jady started attending a different service at the church. One week, Doug and his friends approached her to introduce themselves. Jady remembers Doug being the only guy to reach out his hand to shake hers. As Jady and Doug started to chat, they discovered they were both business students at the same university but Doug was one year ahead. In the semesters that followed, Jady and Doug were in a few of the same classes together and Doug often offered to drive Jady home after night classes.
I was super happy to receive an email from Chantal a few weeks ago, requesting family photos with her husband Dave, their two kids and her parents! I photographed Chantal and Dave’s engagement and wedding over six years ago. Now they have two beautiful kids, Grayson and Caitlyn! We met at Crescent Beach for some family photos yesterday morning on what was possibly the nicest day of Fall so far. It was perfect! I was happy to have their adorable puppy Sadie along for the ride, too. Enjoy!
