Alex & Liz Szabo

Alex & Liz found my information on social media. We met up for a consultation in New Westminster one Friday evening. A casual meet up turned into a bottle of wine, 3-4 hours of chatting over our mutual love for late night fast food runs and Liz's adorable (and hilarious) French accent. We also reminisced about our time in England, as Alex went to school just over and hour outside where I was born.

Alex & Liz met in Mexico, while both simultaneously both on family vacations. Liz was living in Quebec where her family currently lives and Alex from Vancouver. Alex even made an 'extra' layover in Quebec on his way home from Mexico, must have been love at first site! They both now reside in Vancouver.

They got ready (without seeing each other) at a family friends house in Shaunessy, just gorgeous location! Family and friends from near and far surrounded them all morning.

Then we headed to Redeemer Lutheran Church in Vancouver, which has been a family staple for a very long time. The ceremony was translated in both French and English.

Now it was time for the real party to begin. After photos we headed to Science world where their reception was held on the rooftop overlooking false creek at sunset. We toasted to Alex' dad (who celebrated with us from heaven) and enjoyed speeches, heartfelt dances & ate incredible food. Ill let the photos speak for themselves…

Jordan & Mikaela Wong

Anytime I get an inquiry for May 4th I always ask if it was an intentional date choice or accidental, I would say 99% of the time it is intentional. This was no different for Jordan & Mikaela, true Disney nerds according to Mikaela. Their engagement session included Stich onesies from the movie Lilo & Stich, which was captured by Mikaela's talented mother. Terry is also an incredible photographer, who understandably did not want to have to capture her daughters wedding but rather be present and enjoy the wedding. What an honor it was to have Terry ask me to capture her daughters special day. Mikaela had been following me for years on Instagram and was so happy to find out May 4th was one of my last wedding dates available for 2019!

Their ceremony was held at New Life Assembly Church in Surrey, BC. They said a short prayer before the ceremony, but no first look (no peaking!) A 'few' tears (happy!!) were shed on both sides during the ceremony. Jordan & Mikaela clearly knew they were meant to be together forever and had been waiting patiently for this moment to come. It was such a nice moment to finally be able to call themselves husband and wife.

We headed to nearby Bear Creek Park in Surrey for bridal party photos. Jordan & Mikaela made my job so easy. They are both genuinely easy going, considerate & welcoming individuals. And their bridal party was no different! We had a blast throwing cherry tree pedals and enjoying the warm sunny May day.

Off to Murrayville hall for a fun reception, great music, delicious food and accompanied by a Star Wars themed cake.

Jason & Ashley | Martin

Each photographer has their own “style” - some like it dark and moody and some produce airy and bright photos. I think I am currently somewhere in the middle. My real goal however with each wedding or session is to create raw, candid and real moments. That's why Jason & Ashley’s wedding which I shot with Meg Kristina Photography was so fun. There were many tears, much laughter and some seriously killer dance moves. Jason & Ashley have a blended family and that was their number one priority for their wedding, inclusion. Their children were a special part of their ceremony, made some beautiful speeches (like the one where they thanked Ashley for giving them a mom…ahh!!) and had a dance off on the dance floor! Their second priority however was to have a baseball themed wedding to display their love for all things baseball. They got married ON the baseball diamond and a beautiful reception to follow at Chilliwack Golf Course. I think they did an incredible job at creating their themed wedding! Check out the photos below…

David & Laura Bentley

I always say to my clients “You do you.” Plan YOUR wedding however YOU want, don’t let any of the “social norms” or “fads” reel you in. And David and Laura did just that! Their wedding was full of laughter and calmness, I mean they have been together for several years so the decision to get married wasn’t all that hard. They are both so easy going, considerate, welcoming and kind-hearted. Oh and they are expecting a baby, I am SO stoked for them. Talk about some great qualities to have as parents ;) Their wedding was intimate with just their closest friends and family. It was all smiles (and a few tears!) on their wedding day, check it out below…
