BC Cancer Inspiration Gala | Vancouver Gala | Event Photography

We had an amazing time working with the Tamara Taggert, BC Cancer Agency and the entire Inspiration Gala committee for the most recent Inspiration Gala at the famous Fairmont Hotel Vancouver. Beautiful decor, excellent auction items, amazing prizes and touching speeches, it truly was a spectacular event. One that we were proud to be a part of and hope to work time and again in the future. Congratulations to the committee on the perfect gala!

PCMA | Convening Leaders | Marriott Pinnacle Hotel | Vancouver

For those of you that do not know, the PCMA Convening Leaders “Cultivating Creative Moments” conference was in Vancouver earlier this year! Over 4000 meetings industry leaders stayed, learned and networked in our beautiful city. We had the pleasure of being commissioned by the Marriott Pinnacle Hotel to capture their turn as host for an evening of fun for our city’s guests. With the help of the amazing Art of the Party designers, the hotel’s meeting spaces and ballroom were transformed into a beautiful network party space. Girl on Wax was awesome as always and provided the perfect tunes all night. All hands were on deck for this one and I, personally, was so impressed with well… everything. The staff, decor, music, entertainment, food, design… everything was fantastic. Congratulations to the Marriott Pinnacle staff on a wonderful event that will inspire many others in the days to come.

Here are the highlight photos and video.

Kathleen and Daniel | Wedding | Minoru Chapel | Rosewood Hotel Georgia

What can we say about Kathleen and Daniel’s wedding? This couple was just purely awesome and the team of wedding industry pros they chose are just as awesome. It made an already-amazing wedding even more fun to work with so many lovely peoples!!!

From the getting ready in the morning to the spectacular dancing at the end of the night (as egged on by the always-wicked Jordan of Beyond Sound)… it was really an amazing day. There were laughs, there were tears of joy, there was handstands on the dance floor and of course the photo shoot with the lovely couple and their wedding party was (get ready for pun) picture perfect.

So blessed to be able to do what we do and a huge shout out to Elysium Events, Anita Lee, and Beyond Sound!!! Enjoy some of our favourites from Kathleen and Daniel’s amazing day!

Lisette and Allan | Furry Creek Golf Club | Vancouver BC Photographers

Throwing it back to Lisette and Allan’s wonderful wedding up at Furry Creek Golf Club. It was pretty neat to start and end the day at such a lovely location. Everything from the getting ready portion, to the ceremony, to the creative/portrait session to the reception was at Furry Creek. Lisette and Allan were a pleasure to work with and the don’t they look great? Enjoy some of the highlights from their big day!

Mandy + Jeff | Engagement Photo Shoot | Deep Cove | North Vancouver

A little extra treat for you tonight! Just a quick flash back to the Fall season. I love Fall colours!

Congratulations Mandy and Jeff!!!

Bernice and William | Wedding | Stanley Park Pavillion

Awesome bride and groom, wedding party, guests, tea ceremonies and more! That’s what we had at Bernice and William’s big day! You might have seen their e-session photos on our blog earlier on and finally I can post their big day! A big re congratulations to the lovely couple!

Celia & Tyler | Pan Pacific Hotel | Lamborghini | Vancouver Wedding

How could a wedding where the groom rolls up in a Lamborghini not be cool? The uber-cool couple came in from Calgary for their wedding at the Pan Pacific Hotel. The outdoor poolside reception area at the Pan Pacific is second to none in the city. With the sun shining and the skies being blue as blue could be, it was the perfect day for this couple to celebrate their nuptials! This stunning couple had booked my services months In advance of their wedding, but we actually only met a few days before their big day. In a way that was a great way to meet them, because I could not wait until to capture their wedding as soon as I had met them in person! The day was full of amazing moments. From the beautiful ceremony, to the wedding party shoot, to all the fun at their dinner reception. The Pan Pacific is a classic event and wedding venue in Vancouver, and I was more than pleased to photograph Celia and Tyler’s wedding there!

Ashleigh Vogstad | Lifestyle Headshots | Vancouver Photo Shoot

A lady with an unforgettable face! Meet Ashleigh Vogstad! Vancouver is a small city and everybody seems to be within’ 2 degrees of each other in this city. As it turns out, Ashleigh has been a bridesmaid in several weddings that both me or my wife have photographed. Finally I had a chance to photograph this gorgeous and always-smiling (what a smile!) in a lifestyle photo session. I do not get too many opportunities to go the lifestyle route versus headshots, but was so excited about this opportunity. Some photographers may claim that they had everything to do with their captures, but all I can say is… this girl can pose! With her infectious laugh, we roamed around some of her favourite spots where she likes to grab a coffee or settle down to read a book, to capture some great images of her. Ashleigh is what happens when you combine brains with beauty! Check out her company: Global Bend, which helps businesses take full ownership of their online marketing and then some. www.globalbend.com

Ivett & Shin | Engagement Session | Rocky Point | Vancouver Wedding Photographers

Super fun engagement session with Ivett and Shin at Rocky Point Park in Port Moody! The first shot is a bit out of the norm when compared to our other e-session but we love it because it is so them! Besides being great people, these two represent Canada in Tae Kwon Do nationwide and at the Summer Olympics as coach and top women’s contender.

We had the opportunity to photograph their big day during the Winter also and can not wait to feature those shots for you!

Naturally, as the true competitors they are, it took a bit of convincing for them to not always pose with their game face! But that definitely added to the fun for us! Congratulations to Ivette and Master Shin! PS – if you want to train with the best, seek out their school at Tae Geuk Tae Kwon Do!!!

Michelle and Sean | UBC Boathouse | Vancouver Wedding Photographers

Soooooooo happy that we can feature Michelle and Sean’s wedding today. We meet a ton of special couples and maybe Butter is just plain ol’ lucky on who we get to work with, but I can tell you one thousand times over on how much we love Michelle and Sean! They are just the coolest couple ever! If you keep up on our blog then you probably have seen their two-part engagement session at the bowling alley and also up at Buntzen Lake. Their wedding was also a two-parter and both days were so much fun. The first day included their official wedding ceremony and a luncheon reception right after at the UBC Boathouse. The second day was in the evening and a great dinner party of a reception with a b-boy performance, great dinner and lots of dancing! Aaand…. maybe a couple of drinks! Back to the couple though… Michelle just looked stunning on both days in her sari and Sean looked pretty collar-popping slick in his traditional Indian suit on the first day and western one on day 2! They are both just the coolest, nicest people as well and we were both so happy that we could be a part of their celebration. Check out some of the captures from both days and enjoy!
