marlise + troy | stormy Brady Creek Ranch wedding in Invermere BC

In 2006, in between programs in college, I was trying to figure out what I wanted to do with my life and hadn’t any clue what that was. To gather my thoughts and experience something a little different, I applied to a bunch of jobs out in British Colombia and Alberta to make some money while seeing a new place (and hopefully figuring out what is next!). I told myself the first company to call me back, that’s where I will go. I did just that! I received a call about being a beverage cart girl in Radium, B.C and said “Sure!” and booked my flight the next day.

When I got to Radium, I met some amazing people and then, ended up living with them as well. Marlise is one of those people. Marlise and I got along perfectly from day one and from there until now, even though provinces apart, still have kept in touch and see other when we can (although we need to more!).

About a year ago Marlise wrote me asking if I would ever come back west and if I would want to photograph her wedding. I of course jumped at the opportunity. Marlise and Troy planned the most relaxed, beautiful day at Brady Creek Ranch in Invermere B.C. The ranch is a stunning property on the water, surrounded by mountains, has a barn for a reception space and two different houses for getting ready and celebrating in. Their day, although filled with storms and rain, was truly perfection.

Marlise + Troy (and Parker, the most adorable boy, their son), thank you for the most incredible experience. I can’t imagine not being there. You surround yourselves with my kind of people and your wedding will always be one of my favorites. Love you guys xo

emily + josh | sunset engagement session at Old Mill in Toronto

Last April Emily reached out to us to photograph their wedding in August 2018. Emily heard about us through a sister of someone I grew up with and the match of photographer and couple couldn't be more perfect.

We went back and forth about locations for the shoot and when I suggested this park they were completely on board. I used to walk my dogs and ride my bike around this park all the time and I knew how quiet and peaceful it was. 

Well, joke was on us. We arrive to cars lining up to park, crowds of people everywhere and a stank of dead fish. Turns out it was a very popular day for salmon jumping up river. Although very cool to witness, the crowds are never good for photoshoots so we did our best to hide them with greenery and Em + Josh's bodies. E + J were great sports! 

These two are getting married next August at Hockley Valley resort and I am honoured to be the one to capture it. 

Thanks E + J!!

steve + mel | outdoor engagement session at Tiffin Conservation

This is Steve and Mel. Steve and I go way back, like 25 years back (crazy!) and have been through so much together. In college, Steve and I were roommates and one day he brought Mel over and I instantly loved this girl. They are such a fun, awesome, laid back couple and after almost a decade, are finally tying the knot. We are officially at the two month countdown (2 from today) until their wedding and I am so fortunate to be capturing it :)

Here is a peek at our engagement shoot from this past fall at Tiffin Conservation Area. Enjoy!
