Amber & Tyler: Setting the Scene…

September 25, 2008

I had the privilege of driving up to Cache Creek this September to photograph Amber & Tyler’s wedding. I’ve never really spent time in that area of BC, but wow was the scenery ever phenomenal! My assistant and I arrived a day early to scout out the place and while we were photographing the front entrance, we were ambushed by a dirt biker! Right then I knew this was going to be a fun wedding. There are too many great images to show at once, so I am posting a collection of shots that “set the scene” from the wedding rehearsal. I will post the “real” shots next week.

Garry & Gemma’s Wedding

September 18, 2008

Garry & Gemma recently moved to Canada with a handful of family & friends from England and decided to have their sweet & intimate little ceremony at the Capilano Suspension Bridge. With the tall trees and late afternoon sunlight, it was a spectacular way to show off British Colombia…it made me proud to live on the North Shore.  While the wedding was all about embracing their new home in West Vancouver, I though they might appreciate a little snippet of England…so we had Gemma arrive to the ceremony with style in a fabulous vintage Rolls Royce. It was the perfect little touch to an unforgettable day.

Laura & Jay’s Wedding

September 10, 2008

What a way to finish the summer! These two childhood sweet-hearts had the most beautiful & sunny backyard wedding surrounded by the most fabulous family and friends. I think I giggled through the entire bridal party photo shoot….they were so much mun to be around and really hammed it up for the camera. When we returned to the reception, everyone was having a fantastic time and I laughed so hard during the speeches I cried! I left Laura & Jay’s wedding with a smile on my face and a spring in my step.

Masaki & Akiko’s Wedding

September 2, 2008

Masaki and Akiko are the sweetest couple and I thoroughly enjoyed being a part of their intimate little ceremony in the gardens of Stanley Park. They were wonderful to work with and I took them to one of my favorite locations (under the lighthouse) after we experimented with a few new spots in the park. I am really into trees these days…I love the way light filters through the leaves and the way they play on my depth of field. I have to say, the shot with Masaki and Akiko under the little Japanese maple tree is one of my all-time favorites. 🙂
