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
I have a “slower” wedding season this year (20 weddings vs. 28 last year) which is incredible. The strange thing is it doesn’t “feel” slow. Seriously. Last June I photographed 5 weddings, last July 6, last August 4, September 5. It never stopped. This year’s June held 4 weddings, but July only 3, August only 3. The best thing about a less-booked season is having “spare” time. I hesitate to call it spare time, because baby showers, wedding showers, (including lots and lots of hours planning a wedding shower), lingerie showers and a bachelorette weekend have filled it all but they are happy occasions and I’m happy to be there. The twenties are a happenin’ decade.
I apologize – as it has taken me entirely too long to both edit, format and blog this wedding day from last Saturday. I knew I couldn’t rush any part of Brittany and Danny’s gorgeous Campbell River beach wedding… I needed to do all their wedding planning and the work they’ve put into their relationship justice in this post. (Big feat, I know. We’ll see how this goes. It’s loooooong.)
Juliana and Keith booked me as their wedding photographer in early 2013, for their September 8th wedding. Last Thursday at their engagement session we met face-to-face for the first time. I loved exploring more of Lynn Canyon Park with these two and hearing about their story. Get this. They first met at University, when Anna (a friend of Juliana’s and bridesmaid) organized a group of people to climb the Grouse Grind. Juliana recalls, “The group pretty soon split up into 1) super athletes who practically ran up the mountain 2) regular folks who took a break every now and then & 3) the unfit who liked to take a break every ten minutes. Yup, Keith and I were in category 3 along with this other girl who gave up halfway up the mountain. So we were left to our own devices and made our leisurely way up the mountain. He then drove me home afterwards.”
