Kristina & James

Yesterday I photographed the wedding of Kristina and James. The wedding was so stunning with simple, beautiful decorating and perfectly matched colours. The boys looked handsome, the ladies were beautiful and the children were adorable and perfectly behaved.

The wedding took place at Church and State Winery overlooking the grapes. It was an intimate day full of family and friends and I was so blessed to be welcomed into their circle for the night to enjoy the delicious food, snuggle the babies and capture the laughter that was abundant. 

Amber + Ryan + a baby on the way

I am so excited that my beautiful friend Amber is expecting a baby girl this fall! Since she lives up island I don't get to see her as much as I'd like so this weekend we headed up for a visit and some photos of her adorable baby bump. 

After some cozy photos around the house with Ryan and the cats (who were as uncooperative as cats usually are) we headed out to Air Force Beach to take some photos in the beautiful hazy light. 

Amber and Ryan; I can't wait to meet your beautiful daughter and give her all the snuggles!

Dave & Kalenne Tie the Knot

This last weekend was a beautiful wedding overlooking the beach and the joyous union of Dave and Kalenne! It was a perfect afternoon surrounded by the couples many good friends and family at the Beach House. Everything was spectacular, from the food to the view, the adorable children and adults having a blast on the dance floor and I couldn't have asked for a more fun afternoon!

After a beautiful week of sunshine we unfortunately had a grey, wet weekend. But these two adventurous people had travelled all the way over from the mainland for this shoot and we braved the rain to take some fun photos. Melissa and Matthew have known each other for a long time and they were very in tune with each other which helped get some great shots. As soon as I told them where to pose they would get close and were pros at posing for me (or maybe just forgetting the camera was there and just showing how much in love with each other they are?) I am very excited to photograph their wedding later this summer!

Caitlin & Karim

These two made my job super easy today. They not only looked great but they just oozed chemistry and naturally gravitated to each other.  After starting our day in a spot that was special to them we explored a few other locations and I swear I did not get a bad photo of them all day. Thanks for a fun afternoon you two!

 

 

Chris & Kyle

Many years ago Chris and I attended photography school together and spent most of our days together, along with our classmate Sherri, trapped in dark studios, editing photos over breakfast and getting creative.

I was so honored to have her ask me to take some photos for her when she wed Kyle yesterday evening in an intimate wedding at the Union Pacific Coffee Co. There was so much love in the room, a lot of laughter and a few happy tears.

I can't wait to do some more wedding portraits of them during daylight hours! Here's a few favorites from the night.

Fun in the rain!

The weather here has been crazy lately and yesterday was a prime example. I met my friend Jena and her family to do some photos for their Grandma and it was a downpour! As soon as we moved locations to somewhere with some cover the sun came out, and then it rained some more and of course was beautiful as soon as we were done!

I've gotten to know most of this clan over the last few years so it was a treat to photograph them, and they sure made my job easy. They even assemble in a photogenic way. ;) The last few photos of the wagon are actually a recreation from when these guys were just kids!

A beautiful night with a fun family!

Today was a big anniversary for this lovely couple and they decided to celebrate with some family photos. We had some interesting light, with the haze from the forest fires hanging over the island, but it was a beautiful evening for photos. I had so much fun with these guys, they were laughing and having fun and I didn't even have to pull out my bad jokes. They are naturals in front of the camera! Happy Anniversary!

Dustin and Chrissy Tie the Knot {Victoria Wedding Photography}

Yesterday I had the enormous pleasure of photographing the vows of Dustin and Chrissy while they were surrounded by friends, family and their adorable children. When I first heard that Dustin was going to wear an orange suit I wasn't sure what to expect but it really didn't disappoint, and it showed the fun-loving, unique spirit of these two! The whole day was absolutely full of laughter, some tears of happiness and fun and I am so glad I could be a part of it!
