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 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.
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.
This wedding in Edmonton, Alberta, was extra special since it was my sister's Rona-Marie and her now-husband Cody's celebration. In addition to playing the roles of floral arranger and bridesmaid, I photographed the morning’s preparations, as well as their portraits with their sweet flower girl, Parker, who happens to be my niece! Thankfully, a lovely Edmonton-based photographer was taking care of the family photos and ceremony, so Zaac and I could participate fully in the celebrations. (Good thing I didn't take photos during the ceremony since I was teary-eyed for many moments.)
I couldn’t resist a taking a few photos of the food (especially since the groom was also the chef—yes at his own wedding) and the cake, that was made by my other sister. I was so glad to play various parts in celebrating their day. Love to you three!
