Anne & Trung at Manteo Resort & Father Pandosy Mission

I love working with new clients. As much as that can be a scary prospect at times (will our personalities click, will they understand my vision for an image...) you get to explore an environment and go on an adventure with them. Although I had met Anne & Trung at the Kelowna Bridal Show, we had never worked together. We had a blank canvas. are the results from their Engagement Session. Thanks to the Manteo Resort and Father Pandosy Mission in Kelowna for the use of their property.
They are an absolutely adorable couple and we can't wait to photograph their Wedding in August. Anne will be breath taking in her gown!

Joe Buissink Workshop

A few days ago I got an email from one of the Top 10 Wedding Photographers in the World; Joe Buissink.

Joe has photographed weddings all over the world, and has been a favorite wedding photographer among celebrities such as Jennifer Lopez, Jessica Simpson & Nick Lachey, Brendan Fraser, Kelsey Grammer, Hillary Swank & Chad Lowe, Christina Applegate, Jenny Garth & Peter Facinelli, and Christina Aguilera.

He has been profiled by Good Morning America, Entertainment Tonight, Extra, Lifetime Television’s Wedding of a Lifetime, and E!. His work is published regularly in InStyle Weddings, Grace Ormonde Wedding Style, and People Magazine. say that I would LOVE to study with such a legend would be an understatement. What I didn't know was that he was emailing me to let me know that his new workshop in June was going to be in Kelowna! I nearly fell off my chair and immediately, with the encouragement of my great husband, booked a spot in his class. Not only will I be learning from Joe for two days, but he will also be critiquing my work as we do a photo shoot with his guidance. Although nervous to have him looking at my work, I am excited for what I will learn and how this will elevate my work to an even greater art form. Look back in June for posted images from that workshop.

Stacey & Ryan

Saturday morning was the perfect day for my Engagement Session with Stacey & Ryan. The sun came out and the cold from the previous day was gone. We found some great locations downtown Kelowna and they provided a fun and colorful backdrop for this adorable couple.
