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
Jaimee and I have known each other for a few years through church. We became closer friends about a year ago through two different February day trips to Seattle that Randy organized and planned. (Before we were dating, look-ee at that!) Throughout the year, we’ve had a lot of hangouts and have been able to connect even more recently which has been incredible. Jaimee started dating another friend of mine, James, in August. James and I also met through church, however a couple years ago he moved from Langley to Calgary and works at a church there. These two have been dating long-distance since August and have been back and forth between Calgary and Langley.
Wowzers, I truly don’t think the reality of what happened Saturday has sunk in yet. After Randy and I got engaged, we came home to my parents and a few of their friends. When everyone had gone home, Randy and I stayed up until eleven talking with my mom with more details about his proposal. Sunday morning, Randy came over for breakfast and although I didn’t want to “rush” into wedding planning – when you have two mega-planners like us, it just kinda happens. We talked about all my ideas and I showed him photos of my vision. We went to church and out for lunch by ourselves and afterwards, stopped by a thrift store to pick up a few vases. (So it begins! Randy is the best. He’s so supportive.) In the afternoon, we ended up wedding planning and scheming (“What building materials will I need for every single project? We should make a weekly task list.” -See, Randy is perfect for me) allllll afternoon and evening.
Randy and I met over two years ago – through a mutual friend over dinner in Courtenay. Six months later, he moved to Langley and we attended the same church. It was another six months after that, Randy’s incredible character and qualities finally caught my eye. I needed to get to know this guy. We soon became real friends (not just acquaintances!) over the winter months. I flip-flopped between “liking” him and deciding “no, I don’t, we’re just friends” right up until April, when Randy told me “I like you.” The next month, we started our relationship and after a rocky start (I almost have our full story written – you might see it soon!) we fell in love. In October, we began to talk seriously about getting married: looking at rings online and talked vague dates for the wedding. (I already have 13 weddings booked for 2014. Try planning a wedding around that!) We even talked guest lists and possible venues – it was fun and crazy to think about – but I knew it was all hypothetical without a ring. ;)
the twenties are an exciting decade. my social circle in the last two years seems to be full of relationships, engagements, marriages, even babies — and it makes my heart so happy. [that was also a fun sentence to link to past posts. i love couples.] i believe in marriage. and i believe in the love of Christ sustaining marriages. i love to rejoice with friends starting that journey. this past week, while at RevCamp, i got to do just that. our youth & young adults group, Revolution Movement, runs 3 camps the last two weeks of summer. i was only able to attend the first one for ages 13-19 as a leader and it was there that my long-time friend josh asked his girlfriend brianna to be his wife. at 1 o’ clock in the morning, on stage at the end of a talent show, in front of 200+ sweaty teenagers. she giggled yes. and he teared up a little bit. and the chapel full of campers and leaders clapped and cheered louder than they had for any other talent show act that evening.
