Jason + Eden Engagement (Porteau Cove)

Posted by on Apr 13, 2016 in Engagement | No Comments

I was super happy to shoot Jason and Eden’s engagement at Porteau Cove. It was my first time there, and I’ve always wanted to photograph an engagement against the beautiful West Coast backdrop. The timing couldn’t have been better when Jason, Eden and I met up at Porteau Cove. It happened to be low tide at the time, and we were able to climb down to the rocks and logs. These two were so easy going, and Eden never complained once navigating the rocks in heels! I can’t wait to capture their wedding later this year.

Biyu + Judy Wedding (Mexico)

Posted by on Mar 3, 2016 in Uncategorized | No Comments

I was so lucky to have been a part of Biyu and Judy’s beach wedding in Mexico. The Grand Fiesta American Puerto Vallarta resort had just opened only a couple months and their wedding was actually the first to be held there. The ocean and beach provided a beautiful backdrop to their small and intimate ceremony, it was hard to choose which photos to share to highlight their day.

Will + Emily Proposal

Just Because Vancouver contacted me about capturing Will and Emily’s surprise proposal a few weeks ago. Knowing how talented the team was, and how they always managed to add personal touches to each proposal, I was really looking forward to working with them.

Emily started tearing up as soon as she walked in the door, and Will had the biggest smile on his face when she said yes. Congratulations to Will and Emily! You guys are absolutely adorable together, and I’m so lucky to have been a part of your special proposal.

Eugene + Michelle Engagement

Posted by on Dec 15, 2015 in Engagement, Vancouver | No Comments

The entire week prior to the shoot, we were nervous about the weather as the forecast called for rain. Luckily the rain let up enough today to let us do an engagement shoot at Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Park with Eugene and Michelle.

Their kimonos were absolutely gorgeous, and I was so pleased with the colours that I had trouble picking my favourite pictures to highlight. I never knew that there were so many small details to be aware of when wearing a kimono. From the placement of the hand, to the symmetry of various pieces on the kimono, to how a fan should be held, we certainly learned a lot! I’m so glad we took a chance with the weather, these two are such a sweet couple.

Alex + Hillary Engagement

Posted by on Dec 14, 2015 in Engagement, Vancouver | No Comments

I had the pleasure of meeting Alex and Hillary for their engagement shoot yesterday. Finding a venue for them in Vancouver’s rainy weather was tricky, and trying to factor in what makes them unique was an added challenge. For a couple who loves their wine and food, Belgard Kitchen was perfect. They were nice enough to let use their venue before opening time so that we had it all to ourselves. I can’t thank their staff enough for being so accommodating!

It was hard not to smile around these two. Every couple of seconds, Hillary would burst out into spontaneous laughter, so photographing them was such a joy. These high school sweethearts have been dating for over ten years; their chemistry was undeniable.

Judy + Biyu Engagement (Part II)

Part two of Judy and Biyu’s engagement shoot involved hopping into a car and driving to Whytecliff Park in West Vancouver. The amazing natural west coast was enticing enough of a drive. Even though it was the start of fall, we managed to squeeze some photos in before it started raining. It was definitely a chilly day though!

Judy + Biyu Engagement (Part I)

The first time I met Judy, she was a videographer at the same wedding I was helping out at, and we hit it off instantly. Easily one of the sweetest girl I have ever met, I was more than excited to have a chance to shoot her engagement pictures! We were chasing the sun the whole time as it was setting at Deer Lake park, but when we did manage to catch the light, the results were just magical. Of course, having an adorable couple in front of the camera only helped!

Alex + Jolie Engagement (Part II)

Posted by on Aug 10, 2015 in Engagement, Travel | No Comments

After our first engagement shoot at Stanley park, Alex & Jolie messaged me, asking if I would like to do another engagement shoot with them in San Francisco over a weekend. Who wouldn’t want to spend more time with these two in front of the camera!

There were so many amazing pictures from the shoot in San Francisco, it was hard to choose some of my favourites for a recap. We started off with a visit to San Francisco city hall. The architecture, their outfits, and their chemistry together was simply magical to capture. Throughout the weekend, we hopped around various landmarks in San Francisco: Palace of Fine Arts Theatre, the Pier, Chrissy Field, 16th Ave Tile Project.

From egg-tart hunting around San Francisco, to struggling to make helium balloons stay still in the windy city, to helping convince Alex that he looks spiffy in a bow tie, I am so honoured to have a chance to document these two’s special time.

Alex and Jolie are such an adorable couple in person. We had so much fun photographing their engagement around Stanley park last month that we are now in San Francisco getting ready for another shoot! Meanwhile, here is a sneak peek of some of the photographs from the Stanley Park session.
