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
Sarah and Onur met for the first time at a mixer party for their MBA program at the University of British Columbia. Sarah was in the part-time track and Onur in the full-time, so their paths hadn’t crossed before that point. Onur introduced himself and Sarah remembers his kind smile, but nothing materialized between the pair immediately.
Lynn and Peter met just over one year ago, on a hiking trip organized by mutual friends. There were 20 friends hiking together that day on the five hour trail. Peter noticed Lynn lagging behind a bit and instead of charging ahead to prove his own athleticism, he waited for her, encouraging her along the way. Lynn noticed his effort and soon, they both realized they were left behind! For an hour or so, they hiked together, not talking too much, but enjoying each other’s company. Lynn remembers it as ‘definitely a great first impression!’ A week after the hike, Peter asked Lynn out on a date and she said yes. Fifteen months later, here I am, sharing their engagement photos with you!

On Monday, July 22nd, the day after “I love you” I wrote in my journal…
As the months went on, I began to understand more and more about how my (INTJ) brain worked. Thoughts were thought of and feelings followed. First, I had to logically determine my thoughts about Randy and wait until my subconscious felt safe enough for emotion to appear. (Yes, I was, and am, a complex little thinker.)
Jennifer and Daniel were married on Saturday, August 13th in a Catholic ceremony at Our Lady of Fatima Portuguese Parish in Vancouver. Following their afternoon ceremony, they celebrated with friends and family at a dinner reception at the beautiful Marriott Pinnacle Hotel downtown. At the beginning of the day, we greeted Jennifer, her four bridesmaids and Jennifer’s mom in the presidential suite of the Marriott Pinnacle Hotel. The space was completely gorgeous! So many large windows, two bathrooms, two dining spaces, bedroom and a living room – the best case scenario for shooting details, basically. ;) I loved the bridesmaids long blush pink dresses and Jennifer’s lace strapless gown with buttons up the back. (Jen’s mom dress was incredible, too… I wanted it!)
