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
On Thursday morning, I got a wedding inquiry via email from a bride named Vanessa. The date? “May 2nd. Like Saturday.” Her and her fiancé Juan had decided to elope and Stanley Park was the location of choice! They were having a small ceremony, just an officiant, two witnesses and a photographer. That afternoon, I was attending a friend’s wedding an hour away as a guest… but I told Vanessa, “I want to make this work! Can you hold the ceremony at 11am?” And she said, “Sure!”
I first met Alison and Braden at Lynn and Ian’s wedding over 5 years ago now! (Feel free to check out that blog post… but don’t judge my photography abilities from a 2009 wedding, thanks!) I didn’t even remember this fact until I went back and read it on my blog – but Alison and Braden and I were seated at the same table. Alison leaned over and said she was a blog reader of mine and loved my work! A year later, I got another email from Alison – she had volunteered for years at a camp in Maple Ridge called Camp Goodtimes. Camp Goodtimes is a camp for teens currently battling cancer or cancer survivors. She asked if I would be willing to come volunteer for the day, teach the kids a little bit about composition in photography and hang out. I did! It was an awesome day and a really neat experience.
Braedon and Padraig’s Grouse Mountain wedding was a joy to be a part of. Neither Braedon nor Padraig are “in the spotlight” kind of people… and they knew a small, intimate wedding was exactly what they wanted. I met Braedon at the bottom of the Grouse Mountain gondola. After a short delay (seriously, I’ve been on the gondola many, many times and it’s never broke down) we were on our way up to meet Padraig. The first moments between Braedon and Padraig were beyond sweet!
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.
