A few weeks ago, my boyfriend’s company, RIA Contracting, finished their renovation of Open Door Church in Maple Ridge, BC. It was a big job, renovating both the exterior and interior spaces. The transformation is amazing. Seeing as I photographed the project… thought I’d share on my blog! ;) Before and afters are all in order, enjoy, and check out more of Randy’s work on their facebook page.

life | November 13, 2013
Hello, friends! Long time no write. I’ve been busy finishing up October’s weddings and engagement sessions and enjoying a handful of days away! On the first of November, I attended the Women of Faith Conference in Tacoma with my mom and some other friends. Two days later, we flew to Arizona and slept in, ate & sunned ourselves silly for the week. I’m back home to my favourite pastime – tying up all my loose ends from the wedding season. I love taking a breather and cleaning out my closet (and my boyfriend’s closet), and/giving away/trading in all of those now cleaned-out-clothes, doing an extra thorough cleaning on my house (and my boyfriend’s place) and googling/cooking new recipes together. It’s a great time of year. Feeling very blessed lately.
Filmed by Hello Tomorrow Videographylife | November 5, 2013
It was just getting to be that time. My other promotional video (filmed in Spring of 2011) was getting a little outdated. I wasn’t in that same office space anymore. I didn’t have that dog anymore. (Sounds terrible, but it’s true. Taylor died last year.) And heck, I haven’t ran anything over 5 kilometres in a long, long time. (Hoping to get my distance running legs back next year.) Although I still love my old video (it’s definitely still me!) I wanted a new video that allowed potential clients a glimpse into my wedding photography process. This video has a more mature feel – it’s calmer, it’s slower and I feel like it’s really genuine – always my goal.
Andale, Nico & Zachphotography, portraits | November 1, 2013
Family portraits with little tots are so stinkin’ fun. I love this age. Andale & Nico hired me to capture some memories for them this October right in their neighbourhood of Deep Cove, a gorgeous area of North Vancouver. Andale and Nico met in their home country of South Africa and were married in 2008. Their little one, Zach, will be a year old in January and he was full of smiles and expressions. Honestly the happiest kid I’ve had the pleasure of photographing. Thanks for a marvellous Thursday morning, you three!
