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 sat on my bed crying, looking down at the diamond on my left hand. I had never seen a more beautiful ring. The perfect colour, the perfect size, the perfect engraving around the band. I loved this ring. I loved the man who gave it to me. And I loved our surprise proposal in our favourite coffee shop in one of our favourite little towns only two weeks before.
Nancy and Dave‘s wedding day was a full-day affair! Nancy was up getting ready with her bridesmaids at her parent’s home at the crack of dawn. Seriously, her makeup and hair was all finished when I arrived at 8:30am for detail shots. That’s commitment to your wedding day timeline. ;) One of the Chinese traditions I love are called “door games.” The groom comes to the bride’s parents house and asks, with his groomsmen, to see his bride. The bridesmaids meet him at the door and usually get some money out of the deal – plus some embarrassment of the groom and his men. Dave and the boys were great sports and I greatly enjoy the “aerobic” photos below. But phew! Dave passed and he got to see his bride Nancy a few minutes later and off we went to Tenth Church in Vancouver for the ceremony.
Two weeks ago, my brother Brandon married Jen! I was honoured to be both a bridesmaid and a photographer at their wedding day. If you missed those posts, be sure to check them out at Part One and Part Two. Two evenings before their wedding day, my parents hosted a backyard rehearsal dinner to celebrate Brandon and Jen and thank all of the volunteers/helpers/bridal party members for their involvement in the day. My mom worked tirelessly to make sure the backyard was perfect! She’s a master gardener and landscaper. She also took full advantage of all of the string lights we purchased for our wedding in March, stringing the bulbs all across the yard and the deck. Well, on second thought, that may have been my Dad stringing the lights – but she carried the vision.
Jessica and Andrew met at a mutual friend’s barbecue last summer. Both these two knew their friends had been wanting them to meet, in the wink-wink “these two should meet” sort of way. But Andrew wanted the meeting to happen naturally. The barbecue was the perfect place for conversation to began. A week after meeting, Andrew asked Jessica out for a hike around Chilliwack Lake. A seven-hour hike was a gutsy first date choice but it was an immediate connection. Ten months later, Andrew proposed to Jessica overlooking the valley in Creston, BC (his hometown) while visiting his family for Easter weekend.
