Rebecca & Tyler - Married

Last summer I had the distinct pleasure to meet Rebecca and Tyler, albeit briefly, as we were only together for a very short time.  Though our time together was short, we took full advantage of our time we had and we ended up capturing some of my absolute favorite images from last wedding season.

All of the planning for the wedding went through the bride's sister so I never actually met the bride and groom until the day of the wedding.  It didn't take long for all of us to warm up once we started to get to know one another. By the end, they wanted me to stay and celebrate with them, but alas this family man had kids waiting for him to party with them before bedtime.

This event was held at the glorious Prestige Hotel by the harborfront in downtown Salmon Arm.  The backdrop was picture perfect, overlooking the beautiful shuswap and its encircling mountains.  The Prestige hotel is second to none in Salmon Arm for hosting weddings, as well as it's visitors from across the world.

Once again, I had the help of my beautiful partner in crime to capture this wedding - my thanks to you forever and always for joining me on these adventures, Candace Crystal <3





Kelsee & Ryan - Married

It's that time of year where I catch up on my blog updates to share with you some of the highlights I have been up to the past year.  What better way to start off than to showcase Kelsee Ryan's beautiful September wedding in Salmon Arm?

My special thanks to my lovely lady, Candace, for being my studious second shooter.  It is an absolute pleasure to share in the same passions as my partner and I couldn't ask for anything more than that <3

Kelsee & Ryan are absolutely wonderful people and are simply perfect for one another.  Their shared passions for Lord of the rings, Cats, and virtually anything else that they can share together is ridiculously cute.  But this day, the day of their wedding and the joining of their families, was a truly special day to be a part of.  To witness their love and devotion for one another is truly inspiring and something that reminds me why I love doing this work so much.



Kait & Ash - Married

2015 seemed to be the year where I worked with alot of fire-fighters. Engagements, newborn announcements, and weddings - all across the board.  This here, is Ashton, and he is about to take his bride, Kaitlin's, hand in marriage on a beautiful late summer afternoon at the Quaaout Lodge in Little Shuswap, BC.

Ash & Kait were so much fun to work with because their sense of humor was alot like mine.  They were goofy, they were happy, they were tearful, and even a bit tipsy at one point or another.  The most important thing was that they were in love and this day was all about capturing those moments between them as they celebrated it.

My special thanks to my second shooter, Selina for capturing those extra moments I couldn't split myself in half for.  Your help is always appreciated and you are breath of fresh air to the craziness of a photographer's task on days like these :)



Adrian & Andrea - Married

Adrian and I go way back to our high school days.  An unlikely union of friendship born out of wrestling matches in the high school cafeteria stairwell and countless Mariokart defeats has led us to this moment.  What an honor it was when I was asked by my good friend to come back home and capture his wedding day.  Without a second thought I made my way back home to take part in what was an off the wall fun kinda day that I'm sure not to forget anytime soon.

Worth noting to those wedding photogs who think it's paramount to shoot a wedding with a second photographer or an assistant, you'll be surprised to know that this is one of many weddings I have shot absolutely solo, no help whatsoever.  I am very proud of this because those who do wedding photography know this is no easy task.

Special shout-outs to Karbs, Amzinouff, Duford, and Hairbob; the good times continue to be had after all these years.  Here's to many more as we scatter across the continent.

(The beautiful backdrop to those wondering, is the Devonian Gardens located just outside of Edmonton).

Much love to you both, Adrian & Andrea.
