Happy 1st Anniversary: Geoff & Chelsea

Happy Anniversary Geoff & Chelsea!

Can't believe it's been a full year since Geoff & Chelsea got married!  One of my favourite weddings last year - and at an amazing location with a gorgeous mountain backdrop for their ceremony!

You can see photos from their wedding HERE! :)

Callum & Rachel // Vow Renewal Wedding Sneak Peek!

This past weekend I had the honor of starting off the New Year by photographing Callum and Rachel's Vow Renewal Wedding at Newlands Golf and Country Club.

Before the vow renewal and reception we took some getting ready photos (coming later!) and headed to Sendall Gardens in Langley, BC to photograph their wedding party and bride & groom portraits.  Here's just a few favourites I have come across so far that I wanted to share!
Big thank you to the whole wedding party for braving the cold & freezing temperature and smiling throughout all of the photos!

Callum and Rachel were married in Australia... and since Rachel is from BC, not all of her family and friends made it out to Australia for their wedding, so they decided to have a 2nd wedding and renew their vows in Canada.  Their first wedding photos took place on a beach in the Australian sunshine... and this past Saturday it was a bit of an opposite situation, we had wintery, frosty weather... it was so frosty outside that it looked like we had a touch of snow on the ground!  This made for the perfect winter wedding photos.

Congratulations Callum & Rachel on your vow renewal!

Here are a few favourites from the day...

Our 8th Anniversary!

It's already been 8 years!  It was a rainy Saturday in 2007 when Steve and I got married... at least today has much nicer weather!  (It's a clear, sunny and crisp fall day today)

Happy Anniversary Steve!  8 years have gone by so fast already!

Here's just a few of my favourite wedding photos.  (Taken by Anita Chapman of Perfect Moments Photography),

Robbie & Laura // Peace Arch Park Wedding

Robbie and Laura's wedding was gorgeous!  Most of the wedding took place in White Rock (or nearby) on a bright, sunny (and hot) day in July!  We started out with getting ready photos (of both the ladies and guys) in the morning.

I arrived at the ladies' location, where Laura (the beautiful bride) was getting her hair done and her bridesmaids were also getting ready.  Makeup, hair and gorgeous dresses... a perfect combination for details and getting ready shots! :)


Meanwhile... my assistant, Bianca was over at the Ocean Promenade Hotel in White Rock with Robbie and his groomsmen!  Here's a few of Bianca's photos...


Laura and Robbie both wrote letters to each other to open that morning.  We were able to capture some images of them during the time they opened their letters, but it was really neat to have their videographers also record them reading them aloud (a neat memory I'm sure they will cherish!)


Next stop was the church to get married!!!  We headed off to First United Church in White Rock for Robbie and Laura's wedding ceremony.  This would be the first time they saw each other as Laura walked down the aisle! :)  I LOVE capturing the groom's reaction as he sees his bride for the first time. :)  Oh and also a very cute addition to the wedding was Laura's dog, Porsche, who also walked down the aisle. :)


After the ceremony we quickly headed off with Laura and Robbie for their bride and groom portraits.  They chose to have a longer time set aside just for photos of them and the location they found did not disappoint! :)  Laura had found a gorgeous, quiet area with pathways and tall trees...


After Bride & Groom portraits we headed off to Peace Arch Park near the Canadian and US border crossing.   Here we took the rest of their photos with their wedding party before the reception started...


And finally to end off the post... with the reception!  The hall in Peace Arch Park is amazing.  I loved how Robbie and Laura had it decorated.  All of their family and friends celebrated their marriage with them ending off the day with dinner, speeches and dancing.

Here's a few details, guest candids and photos from speeches throughout the evening...
