AZUL FIVES WEDDING MEXICO // JOANNA + RYAN
One of the best things about my job is meeting so many different and fun people and getting to photograph them. The next best thing about my job is being able to travel and photograph in new locations, climates and countries. Last week I was lucky enough to be at the Azul Fives Resort outside Playa del Carmen in Mexico for this incredibly fun wedding.
Joanna, Ryan and their friends and family immediately made me (and my handsome assistant Colin) feel like one of the gang. Over the course of the week we hung out, ate together, did a tequila tasting (an amazing experience!) and cheers-ed our drinks at the beach. It was heaven.
On the morn ...

SEA TO SKY ENGAGEMENT // DANIELLE + MIKE
Last weekend I met Danielle and Mike up the Sea to Sky Gondola for their engagement photos. They were on their way for a mini-vacation in Whistler and Squamish was a perfect little stopover for photos and lunch. These two have actually known each other since they were kids but didn't start dating until the Vancouver Winter Olympics. And although they live on opposite sides of the continent (he's based in NYC) their love has continued to grow.
Danielle told me that last summer they hiked up to Quarry Rock, a popular North Vancouver hike, and somehow got lost. Eventually, once they found their way to the lookout, he quietly popped the question ...
SEA TO SKY GONDOLA PORTRAITS // ALYSON + DAVE
I've known Alyson and Dave for several years now and had the pleasure of taking their engagement photos and photographing their wedding. On Sunday we met for some portraits up the Sea to Sky Gondola - a Year-and-a-Half Anniversary Session. We soaked up the views, the sunshine, and a round of Caesars afterward. A beautiful morning to spend with friends in the mountains :)

SQUAMISH WINTER WEDDING // KARI + AARON
Kari and Aaron came up to Squamish from their home in Seattle last weekend for an intimate little wedding ceremony by the ocean. They love to visit Squamish for the climbing and skiing and chose the most perfect weekend to tie the knot! It was clear and cold and Squamish was showing off under a layer of fresh snow. After their closest friends and family witnessed their vows, we did a quick tour of the area for photos, including going up the Sea To Sky Gondola. Then we said our goodbyes and they headed off for a celebratory lunch at The Salted Vine and, two days later, headed out on a round the world trip for a year, maybe more. AMAZING! It to ...
VANCOUVER SQUAMISH PHOTOGRAPHER // BEST OF THE BEST 2016
A new year has begun and I've spent the last couple of weeks indulging and looking back through my archives at all the beautiful work I created in 2016. None of it was done alone, I was able to work with so many wonderful people. I adore photographing people and the majority of my work involves meeting someone new, getting to know them a little and capturing them the way I see them. Overwhelmingly I have a collection of people laughing, smiling with their eyes, and looking at each other the way only two best friends can.
I spent a lot more time outdoors this past year and a big part was due to living in Squamish and getting back to my love ...
SEA TO SKY GONDOLA WEDDING // SECOND SHOOTING
Each summer I have the opportunity to be the second photographer at many of my colleagues' weddings. I work within a wonderful community of talented photographers and shooting alongside them is one of my favourite things. This year I was able to second shoot several weddings with local Squamish photographer Tara O'Grady. Working with Tara is a blast and she's able to bring out the best in her subjects, make them crack up and get stunning images at the same time. Amy and Todd's wedding started in Whistler where they got ready, they were married atop the Sea to Sky Gondola and had their reception at Callaghan Valley.
These are a few of my fa ...
SQUAMISH MATERNITY PHOTOGRAPHY // CHRISTINE + BRANDON
Christine and Brandon and I have been shooting together for a handful of years. First a couple of anniversary photo shoots, then they modeled for my bio video and now these two awesome people are about to have a baby! I know they are going to be the sweetest parents, so full of love and fun and adventure. I was so happy when Christine asked me to do some maternity photos of her in their home and at the park and I love what we captured! Here are a few favourites :)

FAMILY MINI SESSIONS // VANCOUVER
Fall Family Mini Sessions.
This is the second year in a row that I have offered a day of mini-sessions in Stanley Park,Vancouver. They work out perfectly for most of my previous wedding couples and friends with young kids - once or twice a year they want to get some nice photos of them with their kids but nothing too long for the kids’ sake. Enter the Mini-Session. 20 minutes on a specific day in the park, a proofing gallery and a set amount of retouched images. Families are welcome to purchase more and often do – you’d be surprised at how many fun photos we can fit into 20 minutes!
These are some of my favourite photos from this fall's ...
