brock house wedding: olivia & howard

September 7, 2011


nearing the conclusion of an exhausting summer wedding season, it’s extra important to only work with couples you absolutely adore… and i adore howard & olivia. i loved every minute of howard & olivia’s wedding day on september 3, 2011 at brock house restaurant. olivia has been living in shanghai since she graduated high school in vancouver years ago. howard is originally from san diego but has been at oxford university for the past year studying in a pastoral leadership program. thankfully olivia & howard have a beautiful friend named holly who acted as the main wedding planner and point of contact here in vancouver with all of their wedding vendors.

i met these two engaged folk for coffee at prado cafe thursday afternoon for the first time. as we talked over the fabulous coffee at prado, we simply talked about Christ. we talked about Jesus, what he had done in our lives individually, what he had done in the relationship of olivia & howard and the lives of their family members. we talked about future ministry dreams… and then we talked a little bit about their wedding. but mainly about Jesus.

it was such a gift to hear their love story: introduced by a mutual friend at church one day. after a conversation, howard invited olivia to lunch. their conversation lasted five hours. i love what olivia writes, i remember thinking how comfortable it was to talk to howard about anything and everything, it was as if we had known each other for years. i was amazed that we had not met earlier considering we had both moved to hong kong around the same time & had been going to the same church. looking back, i know that God had a plan and only allowed us to meet after we grew in our own walk with Him. howard writes about that first lunch-date. i wanted to ask olivia out again, but wanted to keep things low-key so i wouldn’t scare her away.  this time i suggested a ‘casual’ dinner and she accepted.  our dinner was followed with a few more ‘dates’ & i began to see the amazing woman God had brought into my life.  after just one week, we prayed and committed to a serious relationship – i felt i had to move fast so she wouldn’t change her mind!

she didn’t change her mind, howard. ;) and on saturday, i got to witness olivia & howard make Jesus Christ the absolute center of their celebration, their lives and their marriage. i left encouraged, inspired, hopeful & so blessed. that’s a good wedding right there. thank you so much olivia and howard, for inviting me to be a part of it. i honestly couldn’t be more excited for the future God has for your lives.

  • Jamie, the light is these images is absolutely gorgeous!! Great work! :)

  • The photos are beautiful Jamie!!

  • Awesome photos! Such a cute couple!

  • First, your work is beautiful. Second, and probably more importantly, you have truly inspired me. We are getting ready to move, photography business, large family, ministry and all across country to replant ourselves as we have accepted a pastoral position in a different state. As we’ve been preparing, I’ve been thinking about what I want to be different about my business, and this post lit a fire under me I think. What I want to be different is that I want Jesus and my love for him to permeate my business as it permeates my life. If my website and blog are my only voice for many who know me, then shouldn’t it be full of Him as my photography is a gift he placed in me? I don’t want people to know me but to know Jesus as He shines through me and as I live my life in love with Him. My work should be a bonus as they learn of Christ’s love for them. Thank you for being so transparent in your faith.
