Chelsea & Shawn’s Wedding

October 29, 2011

Chelsea and Shawn both come from very loving and supportive families, and it was a beautiful thing to witness their wedding at the Bill Reid Gallery in the heart of down town Vancouver. When these two kissed, the entire room erupted with cheers and applause…I have never experienced anything like it! While their guests kicked off a cocktail reception, we stole away to Stanley Park for a handful of intimate portraits. Shawn Edenshaw happens to be an incredible artist (he takes after his father Jim and famous great-grandfather Charles Edenshaw) and carved all the jewellery worn by him and his stunning wife Chelsea. We had a fabulous time and I knew the dappled light through the cedar trees would not only create a beautiful setting, but also be very appropriate for Shawn’s Haida heritage.

Kala & Casey’s Wedding

October 15, 2011

I love these two! Kala & Casey are not only beautiful people (inside & out) but they are also incredibly friendly and super fun to be around. Since Casey is a professional bartender (and an all around good guy) we were able arrange a pre-wedding photo shoot at the coveted George Lounge & Brix Restaurant in Yale town. It was a fantastic location and seemed an appropriate setting for these two fabulous Vancouverites who are always the life of the party.

After an exciting afternoon getting ready with their friends, Kala & Casey headed off to one of Vancouver’s most beautiful wedding locations right by Kits Beach…and saw each other for the first time during a sunset ceremony.  The festivities began the second they walked back down the aisle as Mr. & Mrs McKay and continued until the wee hours of the morning.  Mark,  Sherri Koop (my 2nd shooter….a fabulous photographer in her own right) and I had a difficult time tearing ourselves away from the reception. We knew we were leaving a seriously good party!
