Rich & Larissa: Steveston Engagement Session

Rich and Larissa got engaged in Mexico this past September!  Their wedding will be in 2013 and I'm already looking forward to photographing it!   They chose Steveston (Richmond) as the location for their engagement photos and I bet both of them were wishing they were back in Mexico, because it was super windy!  We had a bit of a challenge trying to "hide" from the strong wind, but they both braved the freezing cold wind and we were able to get a bunch of great photos!

DeHaan Family: Derby Reach Family Preview!

Here is the DeHaan family's sneak peek!

You may remember them from their family session last year near the Barnston Island Ferry.  Check it out here!  Well, this year they have a new addition to their family, baby Dakota!  Check out the sneak peek below of Tristen, Cheyanne and their baby sister, Dakota!

More photos coming in the next couple of days later this week!


Rich & Larissa: Steveston Engagement Preview!

I met Rich and Larissa at the Starbucks in Steveston (Richmond) on Saturday morning.  It was super WINDY!  I'm serious... someone mentioned to me later that afternoon that the wind speeds were up to 100km!  I was worried about the rain, but really, I've never been in Steveston before where the wind was that strong!  Rich and Larissa decided to brave the wind for their engagement session and we ended up finding some sheltered areas in and around Steveston.  Here is just a few photos from their engagement session... there will be more posted tomorrow!

Congratulations on your engagement Rich & Larissa, looking forward to shooting their wedding in 2013!

SFU Wedding Shootout: Video!

Ok, really, this is the last post about the wedding shootout we had at SFU. :)  RF Productions came out to SFU to join us and create this fantastic video from the shootout!  If you're ever looking for a videographer for your wedding or event I would highly recommend them!  Make sure to check them out!


You've probably seen the last few posts from the day, but this video will give you a behind the scenes look at what I was up to last weekend with a bunch of other photographers! :)  Check it out:

SFU Wedding Shootout: Behind the Scenes

One last post about the SFU wedding shootout!  I've posted photos from each of the 3 couples that modeled for us:  David & Allison, Brad & Kyley and Nolan & Nadine.  A big thanks to the couples for letting numerous photographers shoot them and for braving the cold weather!
Here's just a few random shots of "behind the scenes" to see what went on and some of the photographers that I had the chance to work alongside for the afternoon!

Nolan & Nadine: SFU Burnaby Bridal Session

The last (but not least!) couple that I have to share with you from the Ultimate Shootout II are Nolan and Nadine!  (You may recognize Nadine from a Trash the Dress shoot that I shot back in 2010.)  I asked Nadine if she and her husband would be interested in modeling for the day and they said yes!  It was great to get the chance to photograph them!  They were both willing to brave the cold for numerous photographers.  


Here are my favourite shots of Nolan & Nadine!  By the way... Nadine is a fabulous hair stylist at Design Tech Hair Studio, so if you're looking for a cut or colour or even to get your hair styled for a wedding I would highly recommend her! :)  


Make up was done by AC Makeup and hair by Candice Styles.  The bouquet was made by Sunflower Florist.

Brad & Kyley: SFU Burnaby Bridal Session

Here is the second couple from last Sunday's wedding shootout at Simon Fraser University!  Brad & Kyley have been married for over 3 years already (hope I got that right!) :)  and they dressed up again to model for numerous photographers.  Kyley's wedding dress was gorgeous... I love the details, back of her dress and all the lace!

David & Allison: SFU Burnaby Session

This post is all about David & Allison!  They were one of three gorgeous couples that modeled for a wedding shootout held at SFU this past Sunday! 


Allison & David aren't married yet, but they are engaged and getting married later this year!  Congrats to both of you!  They braved the freezing cold weather and we also managed to find some neat indoor locations where we could play with lighting techniques.  I love the pinstripes on the skirt of Allison's dress!  (from Malene Grotrian) Gorgeous!  Make up was done by AC Makeup and hair by Candice Styles.

Lena & Marcel: Deas Island Maternity Session

The weather was so gorgeous yesterday, I was excited to have a photo session!   I'm glad I didn't let the sunshine go to waste. :)  It didn't even seem like a typical day in February for our BC weather.  Usually we can expect cold, grey and rain this time of year!


Lena & Marcel are friends of mine, so this made the shoot even more fun... it was great spending time with them and catching up as we walked around Deas Island (Delta, BC).  I can't wait to meet "Baby Fast"!


Congratulations in advance, Lena & Marcel... you are going to be amazing parents!  I can't wait to find out if you are having a boy or a girl!  Anybody willing to guess?
