Justin & Jackie | 02.06.18

In all honesty Jackie and I can't quite remember how or when we met, perhaps through a mutual friend or at university? Who knows! But, we've been friends ever since. I have had the opportunity to photograph Jackie several times. The first time I met Justin was at their engagement session and man did I know they were perfect for each other. Jackie is extremely outgoing (and as mentioned SEVERAL times at their wedding...likes to talk.....a lot!) And, Justin graciously sits back and lets Jackie do the talking. There truly aren't words to express how great Justin & Jackie are: extremely caring, inclusive & easy going - don't do them justice! All throughout their wedding day I would ask Jackie "Do you have any particular spots in mind for photos?" or "What do you think about this?" Jackie's response to everything was (in the sweetest tone ever) "Honestly, I don't care, I trust you!" Okay, okay....on to some photos!

Their wedding took play at Hopcott Farms in Pitt Meadows. It was a beautiful June day, not too hot and not too cold, oh and no rain!

After the ceremony we headed off on a special hay ride, accompanied by champagne and fresh fruit! We explored the barns and cranberry fields for our formal photos.

Brian & Kerry | 30/12/17

Brian & Kerry wanted to have a simple and intimate wedding surrounded by close friends and family. The perfect time was December, when everyone would be in town for Christmas. They gathered together for a beautiful ceremony at Milner Chapel in Langley, BC. After the ceremony we headed to GLOW Christmas with all of the wedding guests. Glow is a local family Christmas event that features incredible light features (tunnels and gardens), food trucks and Children's games. It has activities for all ages and was the perfect spot for a cold wintery afternoon. Following our GLOW experience we headed back to Milner Chapel for the reception. Everyone enjoyed scrumptious food and thoughtful speeches/toasts. The evening went out with a big bang (literally) with a personal fireworks show!

Diego & Kerstina | 10.09.17

I met Kerstina in high school when I moved to Langley from Saskatchewan over 15 years ago. Several years passed after we graduated high school and Kerstina and I met up to catch up on life. We met at a pub that frequented karaoke competitions - they (the pub) were clients of mine and Kerstina competed in many of their competitions. But lets just say the majority of our conversation or "catch up" revolved around a "guy named Diego" (her boyfriend at the time) - I don't blame her! I finally got to meet Diego at their engagement session and I was truly able to understand why Kerstina was head over heels for Diego, they're a perfect match for each other!!

Their wedding was in the works for a while and man does Kerstina have many of the same personality traits as me: planner, organizer and a visionary. I loved it! I met the girls at Kerstinas parents in Burnaby to photograph Kerstina and her girls getting ready. The oh-so-talented Meagan met the guys at his family home in Whiterock to capture the guys preparing for the big day.

They decided to do a "first" look and formal photos prior to their ceremony. So we headed to Kwomais Park in South Surrey.

Lawrence & Amelia | 19/08/17

Many of you know Meagan, she shoots 99% of my weddings with me and I am SERIOUSLY lucky to have her alongside me. She asked if I would help her shoot Lawrence and Amelia's wedding and of course I said yes! I started off with the "guys" getting ready at Lawrence's family home in New Westminster. The morning was super relaxed and stress-free, just like Lawrence! We headed to the Living Waters Church in Fort Langley for their beautiful religious ceremony. It was one for books - there may have been a groomsmen mishap mid-ceremony, but I will keep that one on the hush hush! (Note the missing glass in the communion table....) We headed to Derby Reach (escorted by a lovely gentleman from Stylish Arrival ) for formals photos. And then back to the Fort Langley Golf Course for a super entertaining reception.  The reception was full of entertainment - a caricaturist, Sitar and Tabla Player, Belly Dancer, Russian singer and Dancer & Bharatanatyam Dancer (check out all their info below!) Thanks for having me Meagan!!
