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
Krissy and I have been emailing for three years about this session. That may sound crazy, but it’s (half) true. It was December 2, 2011 when Krissy first emailed me about photographing her and her boyfriend Mark. They had been dating long distance for a year and Mark was finally moving to Vancouver! She wanted photos at the airport when he arrived. Unfortunately, I was booked! Eight months later, I got an email about their potential wedding the next year… and we chatted back and forth. Krissy said she was a huge fan and had been following my work since my first wedding (in 2008!) – pretty nice to hear! Well, time went on, circumstances changed and they decided it was best to wait to get married. Instead of August 2013, they chose May 2014. Finally, finally, they are to be wed next month!
I stumbled across the Canada Photo Convention website two years ago! I tried to get a group of girls together but life got busy and before we knew it, the convention had sold out. This year, I didn’t want to let that happen! I emailed some of my friends in the industry and put out a facebook status and our group came together. Mikaela Ruth and Hayley Rae are photographer friends of mine (both have worked with me before!) and it was wonderful to make a new friend, Wendy Lees, and have her join us as well. We commuted from Langley to Vancouver both days for the convention at Sheraton Wall Centre downtown. It was an awesome two days of learning… and sitting. I wish we could like, run on treadmills while listening. I don’t do well with sitting for 12 hours.
A week before my wedding, I received a pretty special email inquiry. Amanda’s wedding to her fiancé Tyler was a month away, their first wedding of two! They are having a destination wedding in Mexico in May with their closest family and friends but wanted to legally be wed in Canada a few weeks before. Tyler’s family flew in from Calgary on Easter Weekend to Amanda’s cousin’s cottage in Port Moody. We were hoping for sun (as brides and photographers do!) but we were rudely greeted with rain. A ton of rain. Pouring rain.
