Mandy’s Bridal Shower || Vancouver, BC || Event Photographer

Mandy’s bridal shower was held at the Teahouse Restaurant in Stanley Park. It was my first time going there and it is such a beautiful location with gorgeous views of the city. Mandy and I had emailed back and forth but this was my first time meeting her in person. She is an event planner so I think this was a great way for her to relax and enjoy the company of her family and friends because it was one event she did not have to plan!

Second Shooting || 2013 || Second Shooter Wedding Photographer

Last year I had the privilege of second shooting for a few different photographers. I never got around to posting the photos until now. So I decided to do one blogpost of 3 of the weddings I second shot at last year. I really do enjoy second shooting because it gives me the opportunity to not only work with various photographers, but to see their styles and also see all different kinds of wedding. Thanks to these lovely ladies who gave me the opportunity to work with them. I had a blast at each wedding!

The first wedding took place at Swan-e-set and I second shot for Hayley Rae Photography.

This next one was a beautiful backyard wedding where I second shot for Melody Morgan Photography.

Sheelu and Shiv Engagement Session || Langley, BC || Engagement Photographer

Sheelu and Shiv are getting married next month in Hawaii! I met them last week at Campbell Valley park for their engagement session. It was a VERY cold day and there was some snow falling as well. These two were such troopers and I’m glad they were able to stick it out in the cold because I was able to get some beautiful photos of them! I had a wonderful time chatting and getting to know them. They are a great couple and I hope they have an amazing time in Hawaii!

 

Brandy & Brendan’s Wedding || Chilliwack, BC || Wedding Photographer

Brandy and Brendan got married last month and I had the privilege of being their photographer :). They are from Alberta and came to Bridal Falls before and just loved it so they wanted to get married here. The ceremony took place at Minter Gardens. After the ceremony we went to Bridal Falls for some portraits. We hiked up to the top of the falls which was a bit scary wearing flats and carrying my camera and bag. Brandy was well prepared and changed into her hiking boots right before we headed up! Brandy and Brendan were determined and they did not care about getting a little dirty at all which was great! Finally, we (the entire wedding party) made it up to the top and boy were we ever close to the falls! (you will see the photos below). Just as we finished up the portraits and were heading down the falls it started pouring rain. I’m thankful the rain held off until that point and needless to say it was quite an eventful day! Once the rain started it was time for the bridal party to get on their bikes and head over to Camperland RV Resort for the reception. I had a blast and send my best wishes and congratulations to Brandy and Brendan!
