Pink & Milk // Featured!

I'm still amazed at the attention that Kyle and Julia's wedding in Minter Gardens still gets on wedding sites!  Their wedding took place a couple years ago at Minter Gardens in Chilliwack and they have been featured again, this time on Pink & Milk!

Thank you to Pink & Milk for featuring Cecilia Flaming Photography on your blog!  To see the photos they've published, visit: "Enchanted Forest Wedding with a Touch of Magenta"

4th of July Fireworks // White Rock Beach, BC

Last night we had the chance to spend an evening out at White Rock Beach with a few of our friends.  We watched the Canada Day fireworks earlier in the week, but I didn't bring along my camera, so when we decided to watch the 4th of July ones I decided to bring it along just in case we had a good view.

Here's a few photos from White Rock Beach and the 4th of July Birch Bay fireworks... it was great that we could watch them from across the border!  They were still far away... but we still managed to get some great shots!

Ashley & Dave // Hycroft Manor Styled Wedding Shoot

Earlier this year in the Spring, I attended a 2-day workshop by Ryan + Beth Photographers.  The workshop was called the Full Circle Wedding Workshop.

The Full Circle was a 2-day intensive workshop about wedding photography, business, work/life balance, and creating something that you can "own" and how you can stand out in a industry full of wedding photographers.

Day One was spent in a loft in Vancouver going over all sorts of details from Ryan + Beth.  My mind was jammed packed with information.  From how to run a successful business, to finding your style, business practices, post processing and so much more!  I have PAGES and pages of notes from the first day.  Ryan and Beth definitely shared a ton of information and were open books to how they started out, what worked, what didn't work and where they are at now with their business.

Day Two was the styled wedding shoot!  We spent all day at Hycroft Manor in Vancouver.  It was a blast having the chance to shoot alongside Ryan and Beth Kelly as they photographed an entire mock-wedding!  From getting ready details, the ceremony, portraits, the gorgeous tablescape, amazing cake and even a first dance.

Thank you Ryan + Beth for the awesome workshop and GORGEOUS mock-wedding styled shoot!  Also a big thank you to Erin from Filosophi Events for organizing such an amazing styled shoot at Hycroft Manor.
