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
Happy Wednesday! We’ve had a crazy last few days… but what else would you expect from us?! Friday morning I drove out into the mountains of Hope, BC (almost two hours from us in Langley!) to capture the wedding of Alyssa and Seiji. It was stunning. A small wedding celebration, just ceremony and portraits. (They celebrated their wedding with a reception the next day.) I loved it. Check out that post here.
Alyssa and Seiji met nine years ago, at Buntzen Lake, with a group of mutual friends. They hung out, played volleyball, did teenagers-hanging-out-at-the-lake things. But it wasn’t until a few years later that Alyssa and Seiji really started to get to know one another. Natural scenery and showcasing beautiful British Columbia was a very important piece to this couple about their wedding day. They met a lake, they got engaged at a lake… only made sense to get married at a lake! They love being outdoors and exploring new hiking trails. Seiji is an avid fisherman, too! Last August he asked Alyssa to be his wife at Jones Lake just outside of the Chilliwack/Hope area. It’s accessible by logging roads only and although it was remote and a bit of an adventure to get there – they knew this was their spot. I couldn’t wait to see it.
We were dressed and ready, our First Look captured, our portraits finished… the only thing left to do was actually get married. I loved arriving to the following decor at the lodge: simple mason jars with tea lights and two big round white balloons lining the wood steps.

Two evenings ago, ten of my beautiful brides for this year gathered at Pure Nail Bar in Yaletown for an evening of manicures, pedicures, champagne and fun. The best thing about my business is the people I have the privilege of meeting. Every engagement session and wedding day I think, “Man, these people are awesome.” So, how awesome would it be if we got all of them in the same room and had a party? Boom. We did. It was the perfect way to show these girls they are appreciated and valued by me!
