summer in vancouver: Pt 2

Cheryl’s in town visiting right now with her family and yet I’m posting pictures from my family’s last visit to Vancouver (OK so I’m a little backwards and behind on some blogging! haha) Anyways, there was just too many cute pictures of great times to not share so here’s Part 2 of my post on our 10 day vacation last month.  Our kids are all getting older and with that they just seem to get more fun.  Check out some shots from the action-packed trip~

These first shots are of Cheryl’s son Dax.  We took the kids to Lonsdale Quay which had tons to keep kids entertained while we sipped our coffees on this gloomier day~

Some shots I caught of Aaliyah making a wish at a fountain & fun with umbrellas~

It wasn’t all gloom though– there were lots of sunny days and we made the most of them.

Such a great time relaxing with the families~ and can you believe it was right in the middle of busy wedding season?!  Definitely recharged our batteries and now we’re right back in the swing of things.  This last shot is my absolute favorite from the whole vacation.  It’s nearly impossible to get them all in a shot together– let alone all snuggling like old buddies!  Aaah too cute.

sonya & deep: engaged | edmonton wedding photographer

Sonya & Deep were not having any luck as it took us 3 reschedules to finally get out and do their engagement session!  But once we did, it was all smooth sailing and we had an awesome night together.  They’ll be tying the knot in just 3 weeks and though we aren’t their wedding photographers, I just know they’re going to have an amazing day full of love, friends and family.  We hope these pictures get them even more excited to finally make it official!!  Here’s some of my favorites from their shoot~

After a quick outfit change we headed over to The Muttart Conservatory~ which ended up being the perfect place to show off Sonya’s HAWT pink heels!

Sonya & Deep~ thanks for being so much fun to work with every step of the way!  I know you’re going to be in good hands on your wedding day and I can’t wait to see the pictures!!

monica & joe: married

As you look through Monica & Joe‘s wedding photos, a couple things will become blatantly apparent:  1.  Their huge wedding party was full of gorgeous people that knew how to work it for our cameras   2. The day was full of love, beauty and fun… and 3.  Monica & Joe could not look any more natural and at ease– these are 2 people who are clearly crazy for each other.

Their special day was our first wedding of the year and like a kid in a candy store– I had a super hard time narrowing down my favorites to share with you all!  So sit back, make yourself comfy and enjoy this peak into what was a beautiful wedding for a sweet and adorable couple~

Talk about a bunch of naturals!  Large bridal parties can often be tricky to work with but these girls & guys were like a bunch of pros.

Then it was time to sneak away with just Monica and Joe and —man oh man, did we have to work fast!  The threat of rain kept looming over us in huge ominous grey clouds but these two didn’t let it bother them one bit!  We managed to take a bunch of great shots before the rain finally won and we gave in and ran for our cars!  No joke— we had our cameras shoved into our jackets as it poured all over us!

It was just starting to really come down as I suddenly stopped, asked Monica & Joe for this last couple shots under these trees and without even miss a beat, they struck this gorgeous pose and then within seconds we all literally booked it again once I yelled “got it!”.  And that is why I love our clients!!  Remember my motto:  “Anything for the shot!” haha  **If you look really carefully you can see raindrops falling on them.

We retreated back to their hotel The Westin Edmonton and snapped a couple shots before heading back outside when the rain stopped for a little walk downtown before the reception.

Thanks to Jolyn of Nuance Occasions for pulling the room together at the Westin.  For any brides out there looking for an amazing Wedding Planner definitely go check her out!

Monica & Joe~ We had such an amazing time with you guys on your wedding day.  Thank you so much for being so fun and for always wearing your love on your sleeves for us to capture so genuinely.

Special Thanks to the always awesome, always adventurous Sharon Litchfield for lending us your talents that day.

stephscade Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous!

joyce & calvin: engaged | vancouver wedding photographer

So on my recent visit to Vancouver between all the relaxing and fun with the kids, Cheryl and I did manage to fit in an engagement shoot for Joyce & Calvin.  I was really looking forward to it since I knew the location was going to be gorgeous and though I hadn’t yet met them in person, I could tell from our emails that they were super passionate about both each other and about their shoot!  They came ready to rock and even brought along their own bubble machine!  We’re inspired by that kind of enthusiasm from our clients and we were so excited to photograph them at this happy time in their lives~

Here’s some of our favorite shots from their session which we shot at Rocky Point Park in Port Moody.

The light on this particular day was so pretty and perhaps the most glorious thing about the whole shoot (for me) was the lack of mosquitos!!  Edmonton is the mosquito capital of Canada this year (no joke!) so shooting in mosquito-free Vancouver was a pure wesomeness!

The bubble machine didn’t want to cooperate for longer than a few seconds but we managed to get some fun shots that I absolutely love!

Joyce & Calvin~ you were both a joy to photograph and Cheryl and I both had such an amazing night making photography magic with you.  Can’t wait for your wedding next year!
