QUEEN ELIZABETH PARK FAMILY PHOTOS // THE JAYS
I think we managed to catch the very last sunny fall day in Queen Elizabeth Park when I met up with the Jay family a couple of weeks ago. The air was still not too chilly and the leaves were still on fire. I have loved getting to know and document this family over the last several years - from anniversary photos, to weddings, to babies, it's been so rad to see their progression :) Looking forward to watching these two little cousins grow and change!

SUMMERLAND WINTER ENGAGEMENT // MEGAN + TIM
Megan and Tim's engagement session was a gorgeous and wintry one. We had spoken on Skype but this was our first in person meeting - sort of like a blind date! Although these two are getting married in Whistler next fall, we thought it would be fun to do their engagement photos in the town where they live and in a couple of spots that mean a lot to them. SUMMERLAND WINTER ENGAGEMENT
We first met at a dock in Summerland where Tim proposed to Megan, then hiked up the mountain behind their house in the snow for some stunning views. Their sweet Samoyed Skye was thrilled to be out adventuring and is such a fluffy goofball that I wanted to sneak ...
HART HOUSE WEDDING ALBUM // TRACEY + CAMERON
Another stunning fine art album off to it's new owners! HART HOUSE WEDDING ALBUM
Tracey & Cameron's sunny July wedding at the Hart House in Burnaby was the perfect summer wedding. And now they have a gorgeous hand crafted cloth bound album to reminisce on all the beautiful memories captured that day. I LOVE designing albums for my couples that tell the story of the big day. Why lose your photos to a hard drive and never see them?

BRIX AND MORTAR WEDDING // RENA + ALEX
Rena and Alex had the most beautiful fall weather for their Brix and Mortar wedding last Saturday, especially compared to their rainy engagement session! The sun shone all day, the leaves were all brilliant tones of gold, orange and red and two people madly in love were married. Seriously, the two of them were so smiley and happy and excited all day - it was so sweet. BRIX MORTAR WEDDING
We arranged for their first look in Gastown, just the two of them, and the nerves I saw in the morning melted away as soon as they saw each other. We strolled through Gastown and along Coal Harbour with their hilarious wedding party then made our way back ...
SQUAMISH FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHER // FALL SESSIONS
Each fall as the leaves start to change and once the kids go back to school, families start thinking about photos! Photos for Christmas cards, for grandparent gifts and photos to preserve their family just as they are, in the moment before they grow any more. I'm lucky to have several amazing clients that come to me year after year to hang out with and document their family. And I usually get to meet new families as well! This year I photographed sessions both here in Squamish and in Vancouver and these are my very favourite shots from our sessions. SQUAMISH FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHER

VANCOUVER CONVENTION CENTRE WEDDING // ALECIA + MICHAEL
Even the threat of rain didn't dampen the pure joy of Alecia and Michael as they said I do last Saturday. Their Vancouver Convention Centre wedding overlooked the North Shore, Stanley Park and the float planes landing and taking off - a very West Coast location. Their love story began many years ago and when I asked Alecia for their story, this is what she wrote:
"We met during undergrad in Kingston, Ontario. We were both on the Track and Field and Cross Country teams and had been friends for a few years. Early in September of Michael’s 4th year, he jogged after me once cross country practice and invited me to go to the Engineering Formal ...
BODEGA RIDGE WEDDING ALBUM // JARUSHA BROWN PHOTOGRAPHY
I firmly believe the best way to tell your wedding story is through a custom fine art album. With the rise of digital photography we rarely seem to have a tangible, physical memory, like prints or a photo album. Since wedding days are kinda a big deal, one of my favourite things is to create a custom fine art wedding album for my couples. I imagine them showing their album off to friends and family, looking through on their anniversaries with champagne in hand, and even showing their children.
This stunning album is a sample from one of my favourite Bodega Ridge weddings from last year - Ashley & Graeme's. It now resides on Galiano Isl ...
VAN DUSEN GARDEN WEDDING // DANIELLE + MICHAEL
Danielle and Michael have been friends for a long time and Saturday's Van Dusen Garden wedding was the culmination of 7 years of long distance love! You know it's something special when they can endure SEVEN YEARS of endless Skype dinner dates, visits back and forth and all the residency shenanigans. Michael was born and raised in New York City and the two also had a stylish wedding there in June - two celebrations means double the fun!
The day included a lot of laughter, stylish details, an adorable and slightly confused ring bearer, a scotch bar (yes!) AND a chariot. Yes, a chariot. Danielle was brought in to the reception wearing her mo ...
SQUAMISH WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER // WEDDING WELCOME PACKAGES
With every awesome couple that books a wedding with me I like to send them a fun little welcome package to give them more info on their big day. I have created a lovely custom magazine that offers tips and ideas for planning as well as my favourite vendors to work with. ANNNND most important, I include some local Squamish flavour; chocolates from the amazing Xoco and bespoke calligraphy from the talented Natasshia at Oh The Sweet Things.
