Chloe and Ben | Okanagan Engagement Session | Summerhill Winery

We love it when our couples make it a point have their engagement session at a place that is special to them! Summerhill Winery in Kelowna was where Ben made his special proposal to Chloe! Of course, we were in wine country so we made our way to several locations, but we made sure to get our time in at Summerhill. Chloe and Ben were so great to work with and simply put, are awesome people! I really can’t wait until their big day this Fall. Now for those of you planning your big day, you should look Chloe up as she is one half of Effervescent Events – Wedding Planning and Events. In addition to being an awesome person, she’s also and amazing wedding planner and you would not regret hiring her! Check out her website HERE. Back to their e-session for a second here. While the weather held out for most of the day, it was still a bit chilly so I have to give extra kudos to the couple for bearing the chilly wind! Congrats again to the perfect twosome!

Kimberly and David | Westin Bear Mountain | Wedding

What a pleasure it is to present to you Kimberly and David’s fantabulous wedding at the Westin Bear Mountain in Victoria! Everything and everyone was stunning. We spent the weekend in Victoria at this gorgeous golf resort. The entire mountain was nothing short of beautiful, making it the perfect place for a dream wedding. Kimberly, David and their two super adorable daughters make the perfect family unit. Their big day was a true celebration shared by their closest family and friends.

The morning was pretty relaxed on both sides. A bit of golf for David and the boys, while the ladies enjoyed a bit of bubbly and posed for some fun shots! It was ceremony time shortly after. This took place in a beautiful courtyard overlooking the entire golf course. Beautifully decorated and with guests seated, it was time for Kimberly to walk down the aisle to marry the father of her two daughters.

We then headed off for the wedding party photos and then took Kimberly and David around the course to finish off the creative session. Shortly after, it was party time at their dinner reception. Again, beautifully decorated. Every detail was was taken care of and executed beautifully.

Congrats once again to Kimberly and David! We hope you enjoy the photos!


Jillian and Carlo | Engagement Photo Shoot | Granville Island Vancouver

Jillian and Carlo’s amazing wedding has now passed earlier this Summer, but we thought we would put out a teaser today with their lovely engagement photo shoot!

We did the shoot a little bit later so that we could get some twilight captures down at Granville Island. Both of them were posing like they model for a living! Lots of fun!

Happy Friday to all and we hope you enjoy some of our favourites from their shoot!


Judy & Peter | Vancouver Convention Centre | Wedding Photography

Happy Monday everyone! A few weeks back we featured Judy and Peter’s engagement session at Rocky Point and at their Jujitsu gym. Yup, it was the first time we extended an e-session into a martial arts environment. The shots definitely were fun! No martial arts at thier wedding, but it was just as fun working with the awesome couple!

The wedding started off with Judy and Peter getting ready at the Four Seasons hotel. Their ceremony and reception was at the Vancouver Convention Centre… Always a fantastic location for any couple to get married at! Doesn’t Judy just look stunning? Spot the Elsa Corsi bling too? The ceremony was done a little bit different and with it taking place in the banquet room, which quickly transformed into the cocktail and then dinner reception shortly after.

Peter, who is also a skilled musician grabbed his guitar and played a piece with his band. From the buffet to the cake pops, the guests enjoyed a great meal, shared some laughs with the bride and groom in an amazing day overall.

Here is a snippet of the day to share with all of you! Enjoy!
