You did it! You have finally found what everyone else in this world longs for – Someone to love forever. And now the searching continues… one for a wedding photographer. How will you ever find someone that you trust enough to capture the most significant and touching day of your life? Fortunately, I know what you are going through. I experienced these same feelings when I got hitched. Being the center of attention that day really put things into perspective for me. It gave me the opportunity to discover what it was like being on the other side of the lens for once. Your wedding day can be overwhelming, but investing in a photographer you trust will go a long way. Knowing that you will have great photos of your wedding day is one less thing to worry about and it will allow you to relax and enjoy a day that is over before you know it.
It may be obvious to you what my style is or you may not even realize that every wedding photographer has their own signature style. Although a small percentage of how my images look are a result of how I choose to edit, most of my style is in the way that I shoot. I hunt for dramatic light, select an appropriate lens, find a flattering angle and let the moments unfold naturally. My goal in every scenario (apart from the formal photos) is to set the scene but allow the day to continue organically. I balance photojournalism with giving my clients direction. I believe that it is my job to guide you but for you to make the moments happen.
Although every wedding is different, I approach every one the same; I go into each wedding day with an open mind, striving to create unique and compelling images that you and your families will fall in love with. I am there to anticipate reactions, find the beauty in every moment and to document the day in a way that you'd wish to remember it. I show up to every wedding with a kind heart, excited to photograph new faces and bask in the love that surrounds me.
Have you been seeing a few edgy couple photos on my website? I definitely love good, raw love. I like to to dress down dressy clothing, show some skin, get up close and personal and bring out confidence in my clients they never knew they had. One of my favourite kinds of photo sessions are getting sandy on the shoreline wearing nothing but a bikini. Who's with me? Take a look at Jess & Riley's Pitt Meadow's couple session or Sabbi and Sven's steamy Mexico shoot to see what I mean.
Honestly, family photography was something I never thought I'd venture into. I believed couples and weddings were my one and only calling but once my husband and I started our own family, this type of photography had a whole new meaning to it. Capturing the relationships between my little guy and his friends and family have been my most cherished images to date.
I approach family sessions very similar to weddings and couples. My goals are to tell a story, showcase relationships and do all of this in a clean, simple and beautiful way. Head over to this Cancun Mommy & Me session to see how I capture authentic moments of family relationships.
I am a HUGE sucker for maternity photos. It's the most magical time both mentally and physically and it deserves to be photographed. My mom has 4 kids and she doesn't have a single photo of herself while she was pregnant. That's nearly 40 months... almost 4 years of growing a child and not one picture of it. I'm the complete opposite. I have a ton of pictures documenting these precious months.
My ideal maternity photo session would be seeing you in a breezy dress or skirt for the first half and then showing off your growing belly for the second half of our shoot. Check out Chey & Shannon's Aldergrove maternity session to see what I mean!
