Chelsea + Matt Engagement

Living in Vancouver makes it possible to be on mountains or hike through the forest and scramble over rocks by the ocean with only a short drive (or bike). Lighthouse Park in West Vancouver was the setting for this engagement session with the lovely Chelsea and Matthew. Having time with couples to photograph them together and explore the outdoors is a great way to take portraits in a more casual setting before the schedule of a wedding day. The fog started lifting just as we reached the water and the sunshine broke through the cloud to warm our faces. Thank you for braving some cooler weather, Chelsea and Matt — we're so looking forward to your May wedding!

Lindsay May — Vancouver Singer Songwriter

Lindsay May is a Vancouver based musician I first meet a few years ago through the local music scene and the Shore 104 radio station. Her songs might remind you of other Canadian women such as Kathleen Edwards or k.d. Lang. I love working with musicians to find ways to interpret their music and personality through photographs. It's important for musicians to have professional press photos — after all the work to write, record and tour, making sure your visuals reflects the all the work you put into your music is key to telling your story.

Our early morning photo shoot for Lindsay's new record called "Girl with Grit" took place a few months back on the rocky shores near Vancouver. Lindsay just released the new record and is currently on tour across Canada — you can check her music out here

Kristin + Dave Wedding

Kristin & Dave celebrated their wedding day at the historic Cammidge House in Delta — an old character house near the ocean surrounded by sprawling lawns and grassy fields. The summery setting had a fun, backyard feel, with complete with field flowers, barbecue, and plenty of laughter and dancing. I've been lucky enough to know Kristin for several years already since she is my massage therapist (the BEST!). Kristin and Dave's warmth and generosity was evident from the touches of vintage and rustic charm and seating arranged on the lawn with a party into the night. Thank you for having us celebrate with you and photograph your beautiful summer wedding.

The Williams Family

In October I was on a tour across the country to Toronto. One of the amazing things about traveling with a musician husband is getting to see the landscape of Canada in various seasons. And even better, is seeing people you love along the way. The trees were in full fall blazing colours in Calgary — where I took portraits for the beautiful Williams family.
