When I first met Danni and Shane I just knew they would be a fun couple to work with and I was absolutely right. We got together last Sunday for an engagement session and I had a pleasure of also meeting Nana their super well-behaved dog. She was a trouper and she was the first to jump on the water at Thetis lake! I have to tell you, after two portraits in a row involving water (counting Trish & Ryan’s day after session and this engagement session), I now hope all my clients will want to jump in! Thank you Danni, Shane and Nana for being such good sport and making my work even more fun! And a special thank you to that hunky guy named Al (who is also my husband), for helping me with this photoshot!
And here are some from The Fabulous Jenna’s camera

I think our cameras are still hot from Erin & Tyler’s wedding. These two were so easy to work with, totally fun, really nice and awesomely good looking that we burned our shutters snapping! For this wedding I was able to team up with my good friend (and amazing photographer) Jenna Tye, who took some amazing photos throughout the day. Erin & Tyler came all the way from Manitoba to get married and we spent the early afternoon doing pictures before the ceremony (including a climb up a cliff for photos, nearly escaping a wet muddy dog – Erin is a girl after my own heart!). We love it when couples opt to do pics before the ceremony because it means we can really focus on them for a few hours and then we can do a more photojournalism approach for the rest of the wedding. It’s a win-win situation since it also means couples can spend more quality time with their guests. They had both their ceremony and reception at the Brentwood Bay Lodge – a truly magnificent location – and there wasn’t a dry eye in the house when they said their vows. Thank you again Erin & Tyler for including us in your wedding and congratulations once again!!
PHOTOGRAPHERS (day after session): Eunice & Christina
Photographing Trish & Ryan’s wedding was truly a team effort. Laura and Julie spent last weekend photographing their fabulous wedding in a pure photojournalism style – no posing, no directions, just documenting moments as they happened. The next day Trish & Ryan donned their wedding attire once more and we had a truly phenominal day-after session in the best light imaginable. To make things even more spectacular, Trish actually ran in the ocean and splashed around for pictures, just as the light reached its most perfect sunset colours. Wow!!! We have never been so impressed with anyone ever! If you live on the west coast you know how cold the ocean is! Trish, you are truly someone to admire!! These two posed like rock stars and it was amazing to be a part of their day. Thanks again Trish & Ryan for including our team for your wedding and congratulations once again!! This is an early sneak peek and we’re spreading the pics over two blog posts – one for the wedding and the other for the day after session.
P.S. If you love the way these photos look, consider having your own wedding photos done during peak “warm” light – this may mean skipping the usual afternoon portraits and then sneaking out of your reception for an hour to do some fun relaxed pictures in nice light. Another thought? Why not book a day after session for yourself!
