Allie & Mike’s Wedding

September 18, 2010

Allie and Mike are deeply in love and hosted a really exciting wedding! For starters, they decided to get married on Friday the 13. These two make their own luck, so they drank Lucky lager as a little wink & a nod to the superstitious. They also really know how to have fun and hosted the party to end all parties! Hart House was the ideal venue for Allie & Mike because everything was beautiful and in one place…ceremony, reception and bridal party photos all took place on the same grassy field overlooking Burnaby Lake.  I don’t say this very often…but… it was perfect.

There were so many fantastic things to capture on their wedding day I almost didn’t know what to do with myself.  However, after looking at all my film, I think this single B&W image really captures the essence of their Wedding Day. It was pure joy.


Melanie & Morgan’s Wedding

September 14, 2010

Melanie & Morgan were married at a gorgeous little resort called Edgewater. I was so impressed with them and their choice of venue….it was gorgeous, very private, and only five minutes from Whistler village! An absolute hidden gem! Melanie & Morgan have excellent taste. *wink*

I think the most important thing for these two hard-working lawyers was to spend some well-deserved quality time with their friends and family. To honour Melanie & Morgan’s need to entertain their guests, we decided to take all their wedding portraits before the ceremony.  This way, they could maximize their play time. It was a fantastic solution…and it allowed Melanie & Morgan to have a tender moment alone when they first laid eyes on each other.

Lindsay & Bruce’s Wedding

September 8, 2010

Lindsay and Bruce have created a beautiful family together. They decided to honor their relationship by hosting  a big wedding celebration at the Stanley Park Rowing Club.  The sun shone down on their afternoon ceremony and gave Lindsay & Bruce the fairy tale wedding that they had always dreamed of.

I met Lindsay & her three boys under the Light House (one of my favorite photography locations EVER!) before the ceremony to get a few family photos.  I was so impressed with how Avery, Ben, and Connor handled themselves. They were great little models! I think they appreciated some mommy time. You would never guess that this woman has three children…she is so tiny and absolutely stunning! Bruce is a lucky man. *wink*
