With forecasts of rain threatening us all week, I nearly got down on my knees and praised the weather Gods when just minutes before our scheduled shoot, the rain stopped. ¬†Melissa & Will~ these things don’t just happen… they happen because you guys are rad and deserve only the best for your e-sesssion ūüėČ ¬†Enjoy these teasers!

Anita Love love love these pictures! I cant wait to see the rest.

baby sam

I‚Äôve been patiently waiting to meet Sam and take his picture from the moment my good friend Lana told me she was pregnant.¬†¬† The wait is finally over and let me tell you, it was well worth it!¬† Sam, from his porcelain smooth skin, gorgeous soft hair (which, by the way, just happens to be a trendy European soccer mullet –¬†au naturel!), humungous baby feet (an oxymoron, I know) and easy temperament, is just¬†perfect.

With his mom‚Äôs brains (she‚Äôs an Engineer, turned Lawyer) and his dad‚Äôs athleticism (he runs¬†ultra marathons‚Ķthat‚Äôs ONE HUNDRED miles, folks) Sam will no doubt be a force to be reckoned with! ¬†Here’s some of my favorites~

Lana and Chad~  the saying that you need to enjoy these moments as they pass by in a blink of an eye, is completely cliché, but true.  I am so honoured to be able to freeze for you this perfect moment with your new family so that you can always look back at this special time, particularly when Sam has flushed your blackberry down the toilet, coloured the walls with permanent marker, given the dog a haircut etc. etc…!

Love,

Lisa & JR: Married Sneak Peek

On a scale of 1-10 on the Perfect-o-Meter, Lisa & JR’s wedding was for sure a 10… possibly even an 11 thanks to the yummy food they kept offering us all all day long (you know us asians love our food!) Perhaps the full bellies is what powered us to create some of our best work ever. ¬†No joke. ¬†And if it’s anyone that should get incredibly beautiful wedding photos, I can’t think of two more deserving people than them. ¬†Hope you guys enjoy these teasers~

Karen & Aaron: Married

When we first met Karen & Aaron at our consultation, they told us that they wanted to do an engagement session that was fashioned around multiple wedding gowns. ¬†We swooned a little and couldn’t wait to work with these two stylish lovebirds. ¬†You can check out that esession HERE. ¬† As for their beautiful wedding day~ ¬†everything was equally chic, stylish and polished. ¬†We had a great time with them and their bridal party as we spent the day at the lush¬†Richmond Golf Club. ¬†There were laughs, there were tears… there was even a hilarious powerpoint presentation which will likely go down in history as the funniest Best Man speech I’ve ever witnessed (and I’ve witnessed A LOT). ¬†Ultimately, here’s what it taught us: ¬†1. Karen loves Aaron ¬†2. Aaron loves Karen ¬†3. Karen rhymes with Aaron 4. ¬†Karen & Aaron are totally cute and totally in love.

Here’s some of our favorites from their day~

Loved photographing all the super chic details all over the place.

We couldn’t have asked for better light. ¬†Or better models!

Oh, Karen~ ¬†gorgeous doesn’t begin to describe you.

One of my favorite shots of the whole day. ¬†I love the look on Karen’s face.

The luxe glam theme pulled together by the always amazing Leo Damiam of Wish Events and his awesome team.

Karen & Aaron~  You two rocked it out and we hope your pictures will always remind you of what a wonderful day your wedding was.  Thanks for letting us be a part of it!

Karen “The Bride” Admittedly, when we asked you to be our wedding photographers, I secretly had hoped that you’d move mountains and do the impossible – make me look 6′ tall and induct me into your hall of fame of beautiful brides! You’ve met and exceeded all our expectations. Thanks to you, we’ll have these pictures to cherish for a lifetime.
