  • Sylvia and Cory's Beautiful Wedding in Mission

  • Sylvia and Cory had an amazing wedding right in my hometown of Mission, BC.  I was completely in love with them from the start, and we got on great! The getting ready was done in a gorgeous house a bit out of town, which worked out just perfectly. Look at that dress, seriously amazing. [...]
  • Engagement Photography- Caitlind and Jordan

  • I shot Caitlind way back when I was doing a "portrait-52" project years ago. Well, she was recently engaged to the very awesome Jordan and I was very proud to be asked to shoot their wedding and engagement. Engagement sessions are really helpful for both the photographer and the subject. In a nice[...]
  • Chilliwack Wedding - Connor and Karly

  • I got the pleasure to photograph with Rick of RH Studio Photography to shoot Connor and Karly’s wedding in beautiful Chilliwack, BC. I shot with Rick before and he’s an excellent photographer and friend. In this case he needed someone to cover the groom and his groomsmen getting ready, and of course[...]
  • Maple Ridge BC Wedding - Hilary and Kyle

  • The day started with meeting up with the bride and her bridesmaids at a house in east Maple Ridge, and spending a couple of hours with the girls as they got ready, laughed, had some drinks, and got dolled up by the hair and makeup artists.

  • The story of this lovely backyard summer wedding in rural Vancouver, for me, makes it even more fun than normal. Less than a day before I arrived I was running the Tough Mudder race in Whistler with 10 of my closest co-workers. It was over five hours of obstacles and slogging through the mud, dinn[...]
  • Golden Ears Park Engagement Photography - Jason and Marina

  • Jason and Marina recently moved here from eastern Canada and chose the gorgeous Golden Ears Provincial Park in Maple Ridge as the location. As a native of Maple Ridge I knew that Golden Ears has a wide variety of locations to use for photography, as well as being nice and close downtown Maple Ridge[...]
  • Joe and Rachel - Pitt Lake Engagement Photography

  • If you are looking for a gorgeous place to have your engagement photo shoot, Pitt Lake in Port Coquitlam, BC, is a great place to go.  The mountains surround you on three sides, there's a quiet lake with boat launch and dock, and you really the quintessential feel of the pacific northwest.  I sugges[...]
  • Surrey Wedding Photography - Tia and Jason

  • Truth be told, this wasn't technically a wedding, but a reception.  Tia and Jason got married in Vegas a bit ago, but she came to me and told me that the photos provided at the Elvis Marriage Chapel (or something like that) were, shall we say, sub-par.  Since they were having a reception for friends[...]
