Diana & Joris are getting married today at the gorgeous Pinnacle at the Pier hotel, but their love story started almost 4 years ago. They met while working on the Holland America Rotterdam cruise ship. Diana remembers seeing Joris for the first time, remembers exactly what he was wearing, and remembers the two conversations he attempted to have with her. She said the third conversation was a charm and they talked all night. Soon after, Joris was set to go on leave, and he was worried he’d never see her again. They decided to not keep in touch — to protect their hearts — but surprisingly, when Joris returned a few months later, they were on the same ship again! [Another cool part to the story in hindsight, Diana was set to leave the day before Joris returned on board — but her contract was extended at the last minute. Fate!]

becca janz is the happiest, giggliest, disney-movie-watching, muscial-singing, princess-loving, bride i have ever photographed. i loved being with the janz family this past friday, july 20th, as their oldest daughter becca married her beloved austin. the janz’ have been in my life for years [since early high school] and there’s nothing like sharing in a wedding day with people you know and love. becca was adamant that i be her wedding photographer [even before she got engaged!] even if it meant skipping alcohol to save costs at her wedding reception. it was the cutest. i felt very loved.

catherine & erik were married on july 14, 2012 at brock house restaurant on jericho beach. their day was filled with nautical details that made their wedding very cat & erik. non-traditional and care-free, cat and erik love art, music and living life to the full. they’ve shared many adventures together over their dating years, including living in the vancouver harbour on a boat for a year. they used to take a small dinghy [the one in this post] to shore and bike to work every morning, even in the winter snow! i love their adventurous spirits.
