i remember katja+tobias’ wedding like it had happened just yesterday. hard to believe that since then, they’ve gone home to germany, had a baby and then came back to visit us here in vancouver! meeting lil miss m was SUCH a treat (in addition to seeing her parents again, of course) … she had the BEST hair! (:
i love that time of the year when the cold starts to nip at your nose and the leaves turn to flames. chastin+kevin joined me on this glorious fall saturday for their CONNECTION session and we took our time around stanley park. then i showed them the beautiful ivy wall that i am so in love with! thanks for grabbing the leaves and playing like kids with me! i can’t wait until your wedding next summer! <3
shannon+scott had an amazing middle beach lodge wedding attended by guests clad in all shades of cream and white and ivory, art deco-style. for the first time in my wedding career, i wore white, just like the bride! (:
big thanks to jarusha for wearing the [stu-di-o] by jeanie hat! whilst she spent time with the suspender-clad groomsmen, i had tons of fun with the ladies in waiting!
big congrats to the happy couple and their darling flower baby girl, augustine! <3
one of my favourite parts of the holiday season is the start of the many wonderful craft shows that start to pop up in various parts of vancouver. and the one that i look forward to the most is the got craft? holiday show, hosted by event planner extraordinaires rob+andrea.
this year, they asked me if i would like to be the photographer for their feature article on claire schagerl from thistle town toys, and i jumped at the chance because i absolutely love claire’s work, and couldn’t wait to get to know her better.
here are a few of my favourite shots from our one hour visit at claire’s workshop.
the gotcraft holiday show is at the maritime center this december 14th and 15th … it’s NOT one to be missed! <3
my dear friend and photographer extraordinaire alana’s little neva wanted to bake in the oven for a while longer than expected, but when she arrived, it was so well worth the wait. here’s a capture of a day in the life of alana, jin, neva, and of course their first fur baby, dekker.
it was a sweetly hidden little spot that geneve of dreamgroup productions found at the beautiful van dusen gardens for cyndi+brian’s intimate family wedding in late august. the sun stayed shaded behind the tall majestic trees as the two lovebirds said their vows in front of their families, and what had started the day at the rosewood hotel georgia wrapped up with a lovely dinner in the majestic lancaster room.
congratulations cyndi+brian! you’re a lovely couple and i wish you all the happiness in the world! <3

when my dear friend, tracey heppner emailed from the philippines to say that her sister was getting married, and that one the names she passed to kristal was mine, i kept my fingers and toes crossed until i received the thumbs up from kristal. i had met kristal so many years ago and immediately liked her vivacious and warm personality, and when we photographed her engagement to scott for heirloom magazine, i knew that her wedding was going to a very special homespun special affair.
the day was filled with kelowna-sunshine and so much love as the two families united with kristal and scott’s vows. and yes, it’s kristal’s voice dedicating “a thousand years” to scott as she walked down the aisle with her dad. it was the best july wedding day ever.

beautiful bodega ridge is definitely one of my favourite destinations for weddings! it was so great that susanne+sam picked this deluxe collection of log cabins to be the meeting place for both of their families. from across the pacific ocean island nation of new zealand to the european confederation we all know as switzerland, as well as across canada, joined by aussie counterparts there to dance the night away, the only thing missing was an extra night stay …
… thank you for inviting me to document your magical day! ❤
