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!

Our Love Story
My husband Randy and I have only been married a little over one year but we are doing our best to set patterns now to serve us well in the future. One of those patterns is a weekly date night. I used to think this idea was so silly – what do you mean weekly date night? If you’re married, aren’t you with that person at least five nights a week? The answer is yes, Randy and I will spend around 5-7 nights a week together, every week. We’re around each other, hanging out with friends, maybe running errands together, watching TV or working on a project but it’s not a “date night.”
A date night is an intentional 3-4 hours of time, where you can get out of the house (usually) and enjoy time looking at one another! Rather than looking at something together. I’m a quality time person, so date nights mean a lot to me. I can’t imagine how much more important they’ll be when we have a family! Randy and I set aside one night a week to have a date. It usually involves going out for dinner together, followed by a walk or a stop for tea and coffee. We don’t have a set night, but I imagine when we have kids, we will. For us, it’s either Friday, Saturday or Sunday night, depending on my work schedule.
About a month ago, we had a really fun date night “in” that I wanted to share with you! After dinner, we logged onto the “Mingling of Souls” Book website and watched all of Matt and Lauren Chandler’s videos, answering audience questions about love, relationships & sex. We loved listening to Matt and Lauren’s wisdom and discussing different answers in between loading new videos. Watching the videos got us even more excited about the solid marriage we’re trying to create daily and the family we hope to have someday.
If you’re looking for a relaxing but insightful evening with your significant other, I’d definitely recommend setting aside some time to watch the short videos together. Enjoy!
