Shawn & Scott - Married

Wow, has it ever been a long while since I've posted a blog.  I'd like to tell you that I have just gotten back from the future on an adventure with Marty & Doc, but the truth is alot less exciting... I've simply been a busy shooter! While my online presence has suffered a bit as a result, being busy is a most welcome and humble blessing. 

Thanks to my good friend and talented 2nd shooter, Brett Alton to aide me with this wedding, there was no shortage of moments captured, and amazing ones at that.  With a venue such as Rustic weddings located in Sorrento, British Columbia, Canada, you're assured a beautiful back-drop to get married at.

As photographers, we tell a story with our pictures. Shawn & Scott's story is one of love, family, friends, and an abundance of everything in between - from the laughter and the tears, down to the littlest details.  I hope you enjoy their celebration and join me in wishing them well on their lifetime of an adventure together.
 
Until next time,

Paige - Grad

The one thing I can truly say about this session is that it embodies the definition of grace and elegance.  

Grad sessions are usually so casual, but Paige wanted anything but that.  I wanted to help her achieve her vision so I spent lots of time putting this session together.  With a little help from some locals, (who had a truly storybook property), and Paige's little sister to assist me, I was able to capture some of the most elegant and artful images I think I've ever taken.  But I was really inspired by Paige and her situation, and that really helped me tap into another level of inspiration for my own work as a result. 

We all face challenges in our life that seem impassable, and sometimes but not always, we find a ways to defeat them and move onto the next stage of our lives...  making us stronger, smarter, and more beautiful than ever before.  Paige is no different.  She wanted to showcase her incredible transformation in this moment in a way that would never let her forget just how important that was to her.

Once we were done and she saw the final images, I could sense that she felt strong, empowered, and beautiful again.  My hope for Paige and for all the rest of the graduates of this year and the next is that you always continue to find yourself in ways you never thought possible, and never, EVER give up on yourself.

Shawn & Scott - Engaged

For a guy who is a volunteer fire-fighter, Scott sure isn't putting any fires out in these images with his fiancée - if anything they are starting one fire after another everywhere they stand, (or sit), in this photo set.  They're hot!!!  I can only imagine how hot they're gonna be, (or for that matter how hot it will be outside) for their mid-summer wedding.  Good thing there will be other Firefighters there just in case.

Just another fall day in paradise, at the beach.  Please enjoy these.  My thanks to the happy couple for letting me share these moments with you.

Kyana & Kyle - Engaged

The energy and love between these two could power a Harley devoid of fuel.  Kyana & Kyle recently moved to the Shuswap and when they contacted me to photograph them, I wanted to really leave them with the impression that they came to the right place to settle down.  

The day of the session, we had amazing sunlight so I skipped out of work early to get to their house before we lost the sun.  I got there about 20 minutes before the sun disappeared behind the mountain and literally, the first shots of this set are taken within 5 minutes of us meeting each other.  That's how I have to roll sometimes.  In the end, we had a great time, got some amazingly beautiful images and now I look forward to photographing their hog-wild wedding later this summer.

These images should get your motor running!
