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
Suly and Daryll were married this past Thursday, June 18, 2015 at my favourite venue in the whole Lower Mainland: Fraser River Lodge. I was honoured when Suly found my work online while searching for venues and upon reading about Fraser River Lodge, chose to have her destination wedding there and hire me to shoot it! Suly, Daryll and their fifty guests came from all over Canada to celebrate in the picturesque mountain-side setting and I couldn’t have been more thrilled to be there.
Hi Friends! I’m starting a new series today, one I’ve wanted to start for months (well, technically, a year!) since our wedding day. Randy and I worked on a ton of Do-It-Yourselves projects over the course of our four-month engagement. I’m not the most crafty woman… but Randy’s a construction contractor so I figured we could figure out a lot of decor ourselves. We loved working on wedding projects together that winter and I’m thankful for an amazing fiancé (at the time, now husband!) who helped make my wedding dreams come true.
This is a personal project of mine. I want to write our love story, in detail, so many years from now I can remember what drew us to one another. The introduction of Forge can be found here and Part One can be found here. Part Two can be found here. Part Three can be found here. Part Four can be found here. Part Five can be found here. Part Six can be found here. Part Seven can be found here. Part Eight can be found here. Part Nine can be found here. This is Part Ten.
On March 28th, Randy and I celebrated our one year anniversary together. 365 days before on the night of our wedding day we stayed in “Fenn’s Cabin” at Rowena’s Inn. I love milestones – all of the reflection and reminiscing that comes with returning to a particular place again. I’ve stood in the same spot Randy first put his arm around me in Deep Cove. I’ve returned to the same bench he said “I love you” in Victoria. I’ve walked by the first place we kissed down by the river. It sounds silly, but it almost feels like “hallowed ground” returning to places big moments happened. We were here – a year went by, or whatever length of time – and now we’re back here. So much has changed – but physically, here we are. Right back where we were. We decided to return to Rowena’s Inn one year later to celebrate our first year of marriage.
