Maria and Andy | Wedding Photography | Vancouver

So much joy in Maria and Andy’s celebration on their big day! From the traditional Chinese wedding morning door games to the tea ceremony to their Catholic Church ceremony to their reception at Kirin Starlight in New Westminster, it was glorious day. We also had a great time photographing the lovely couple and their wedding party around Stanley Park under the perfect sunny/blue skies! Congratulations once again to you both!

Gloria & Daniel | Maternity Photo Session | Royal Columbian Hospital

From clients to being great friends… that definitely happens a lot and a great perk with running our business! Today we get to share a great story with two of our great friends who recently welcomed a new addition to their family! We had met Gloria and Daniel while photographing their wedding a few years ago and love the additional opportunities to capture the different moments as their love and family continues to grow!

Funny story behind this maternity photo shoot. It was actually booked a month after the day we did the shoot! Little Dylan decided he wanted to come out a couple months earlier than expected. So we said, what the heck… let’s do the maternity shoot at the hospital.

We made due with a little courtyard (probably was a patient smoking area in the past) and a mini studio in the room. The AWESOME nurses at Royal Columbian Hospital must have been either shaking their heads or having a laugh at us. The weather and lighting was great that day.

Dylan did come a couple of months early but is happily and healthily chubbing it up these days. Congratulations to Gloria, Daniel and Dylan! Much love!

A little featurette today on our good friends Sanj & AJ who volunteered to be our models for a shootout/critique session we held earlier this year. Before participants arrived, we had a chance to do a mini-shoot around New Westminster with the lovely couple! Gorgeous personalities and what a handsome looking couple they make!

Erica and Clive | Celebration Pavillion | Kirin Starlight | Vancouver Wedding

Love, love, love Erica and Clive! Chris had the pleasure to work with this oh-so-cute and very gracious couple! They were both all smiles the entire day and as a wedding photographer, one could not ask for a such a pleasure of a “work” day! Yes the word “work” should be in quotes because it certainly doesn’t feel like it when you get to work with awesome couples all the time and Erica and Clive are no exception to this! The day started off with the getting ready on the bride and groom’s sides and then into the very important traditional Chinese tea ceremony. For those of you that do not know, the tea ceremony is very important in paying respect to the bride and groom’s elders. Erica looked lovely in her “Chiong Sam” (traditional Chinese dress) of course! We then headed off to the Celebration Pavilion (a popular but always fantastic spot for a wedding ceremony) for part 2 of the getting ready where Erica got dressed in her beautiful Western wedding gown. The groom and bride-to-be arranged for their first look just behind the venue at Queen Elizabeth Park where Clive was just so touched as soon as he got his first glimpse at his beautiful bride. After a lovely ceremony we made our way to Steveston and then Antique Alley in New Westminster for their bridal portraits. This is how great the couple is… we got so many great cute shots as well as some fashion-y ones as well! After our little photo session we headed off to Kirin Starlight Restaurant in New Westminster – definitely one our favourite reception venues! Some would think it’s with a bit of bias that I say that because we had our wedding reception there as well a few years back; HOWEVER… even if we didn’t choose that venue for our wedding, I can honestly say it’s still one of my favourites with their modern decor, great customer service, and fantastic food! The evening was so much fun that it was over before we knew it! Erica… Clive… Here’s to many, MANY happy years ahead and a big congratulations to you both! Thank you for letting Butter Studios be a part of your special day.

Ultimate Shootouts Vancouver 5 | New Westminster | Film 2 Frame Studios

There is no hiding that the team at Butter Studios, well…us… we just simply love what we do! But really it’s not about us, us, us all the time! We love the fact that there are more and more people finding passion in photography and especially wedding and portrait photography. A couple of years back we teamed up with our friends at Pure White Studio and Stone Photo to come up with a concept that helps develop the photography community with the intention of making it a positive, educational and community-driven forum. With that, we had recently reached our 5th official shootout event. Everybody had lots of fun and thanks to many great sponsors including Film 2 Frame Studios, Garden Party Flowers, Anita Lee Makeup + Hair, Blurb Books, Lowepro, Zin Frames, Vancity Bride Blog, and Vancity Wedding Directory, it was a great success! More pics to come, but here are few shots we took of our fabulous models Katie and Jordan. Enjoy!

Gabrielle and Bryan | Vancouver Wedding Photography

Real treat to feature Gabrielle and Bryan’s big day in our blog today! I can honestly say this couple is just a super nice pair and a bit goofy, but I would not have it any other way! When I arrived in the morning the overall feeling was so calm and chill. I’ve known Gabe for a few years now and it was real special to see her right from the get go on her wedding day. She just looked stunning in her wedding gown and Bryan didn’t look too shabby either! The guys had their eyes on the scotch and cigars on their side in the morning! We made our way throughout New Westminster for the wedding party shoot and it was just an absolute party during the evening! Lots of dancing and yup you know it… Butter Photobooth was on-site as well for the festivities. A gigantic congratulations to Gabrielle and Bryan! Thank you for letting the Butter Team be a part of your big day!
