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
A few days after we got engaged, my friend Leanne offered to return the favour of many-a-couples sessions I had photographed of her and Sam and shoot our engagement session as a gift. We were so thankful for the gift! Our freezing (don’t let the sleeveless dress fool you) afternoon session took place in Port Moody: one of our favourite areas of the Lower Mainland. It was also the city Randy told me he first liked me. It was neat to shoot there and know the background of these photos means so much. The weather could not have been more beautiful – a perfect wintery day.
We have been engaged 24 days as of today – with 101 to go (only referencing that number for the flow of this first sentence, 101 sounds very fast, so let’s not think about that) – and we were super spoiled by our families with two engagement parties. We were engaged November 23rd and that very evening my Mom had started to make plans for a December 1st party at our house. It was the first time we had seen many of our family/close friends since engagement and it was such a fun time. Surreal, really. A lot of my bridesmaids were there (4 out of 6!) and 2 of Randy’s groomsmen. (The other 4 aren’t local.) It was a relaxed evening, chatting and connecting with friends – as well as opening up a few gifts and cards. We are set with mugs and tea and coffee by now!
