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
Selena and Jeff like to joke that they ‘met’ for the first time at Starbucks. And technically, of course, they did meet one another face to face for the first time over coffee. However, it wasn’t happenstance… the pair had been communicating online for the month leading up to their meeting! After chatting back and forth through messages, and as Jeff put it, ‘writing novels to one another,’ they agreed to meet for a coffee.
Almost two years ago, Randy and I started leading a ‘community group’ through our church every week at our home and Jason and Jamie started attending! Just a couple months after our community group began, Jamie was away with her basketball team for a weekend tournament in Victoria. Jason surprised her (it was Valentine’s Day after all!) by asking if she wanted to spend the rest of their lives together.
I have a special session to share with you… and this post is so long overdue! Last June, my husband Randy and I traveled to Winnipeg (for the first time ever!) to visit our friends Michelle and Mark and their son, Jackson. Michelle, Mark and Randy grew up on Vancouver Island together in their teenage years… and for the last few years Mark and Michelle have been living in Winnipeg for work. Obviously, distance hasn’t allowed us to see them as much as we would like – so a long weekend in Winnipeg seemed like the perfect opportunity.
This past Saturday, Gwen and Bernabe were married on the terrace at the Shangri-La Hotel in Vancouver with a reception to follow! However, the morning started in West Vancouver at Gwen’s family home, up on the beautiful hills of the North Shore. In the living room where Gwen was getting ready with her bridesmaids, the windows and doors were open, letting in the warm summer air! Gwen looked absolutely beautiful and was all smiles from the moment we arrived. Shortly after, Bernabe and his groomsmen arrived for the traditional door games. The groom needs to ‘barter’ with the bridesmaids with money, as well as complete a series of challenges before can see his bride! ;) It’s pretty fun.
