I loved working with this gorgeous family when they were visiting the sunny Okanagan...although on this particular morning, it was anything but sunny.

Mission Creek Parkway Wedding: Josh & Alissa

Josh and Alissa's day was filled with sheer joy as they brought family and faith together in a moving and heart felt ceremony.  The rain tried to dampen their spirits, but it didn't last long and we had an incredible time at Mission Creek Parkway in Kelowna.

Moria & Jim's Gorgeous Sparkling Hill Wedding

I absolutely adore working with this beautiful couple! What an incredible day.  From Sparkling Hills in Vernon, to their deeply moving ceremony at All Saints Anglican Church and back again...and oh yes....we did arrive to the Reception in a helicopter!  It was wonderful to work again with Artistic Designs by Colleen out of Kelowna.

Carolyn & Scott Get Hitched!

It's not every day that a photographer gets to photograph one of her best friends weddings....love you to the moon and back Carolyn and Scott!  xoxoxo

Carolyn's dress is from Victoria Lane Brides, and her beautiful flowers were from 27th Street Flourist - both located in Vernon BC.

Moria & Jim's Lakeshore Engagement Session

When Moira first contacted me for their Engagement Session, she knew she wanted it near water and wanted also end up in it :)  Being from Kamloops, she left the location up to me and I had the perfect location in mind on Okanagan Lake.  I loved the genuine ease both Moira and Jim had in front of the camera-doesn't hurt that they are both gorgeous people!-and we had so much fun bringing her vision to life.  I look forward to capturing their Sparkling Hill Wedding later this year!

Patti & Alan's Historic O'Keefe Ranch Wedding

I love photographing Weddings at the historic O'Keefe Ranch in Vernon.  Patti & Alan's beautiful day was no exception.  Their ceremony saw a blending of two beautiful families and there was so much joy and laughter in the air.  It was wonderful working with Okanagan Executive Events and the fabulous Whisk Cake Company of Kelowna.

Brook & Cole's Pin Up Inspired Engagement Session

When Brooke and Cole sent me their idea for their Engagement Session, I was super excited to incorporate some fun, new ideas into their session.  Choosing some fun, urban downtown Kelowna locations, plus the awesome attic above Perpetual Blooms & Picture Perfect we had a blast.  Can't wait for their Wedding this fall at Gellatly Nut Farm in West Kelowna.

Mark & Andrea's Silver Star Wedding

What a wonderful couple! Mark and Andrea came to Vernon for their Silver Star Winter Wedding from Vancouver and they were an incredible couple for Carolyn (of Carolyn Carson Photography) and I to work with!  We loved every minute...minus the cold blowing snow that they and their Wedding party bravely faced. Thanks to Pinhead's Bowling up Silver Star for the fun and awesome backdrop for some of their images...and for helping us get out of the cold.

Erin & Travis Harvest Golf Course Wedding

Oh what a gorgeous September Wedding! I love working at the Harvest Golf Course on the best of days...but it was spectacular in September!  Special thanks to Brian Reilly for being my associate photographer (while Kate is away on maternity leave) and to the best Zombie Bridal party ever :) 

Jen & Kyle Gellatly Nut Farm Wedding

Oh the gorgeous details in this Gellatly Nut Farm Wedding! Jen told me early on there were going to be a lot of DIY ideas at this wedding and we were blown away with the creativity.

Jeff & Amanda's Gorgeous Langely Wedding

Jeff and Amanda's Langley Wedding was a dream to photograph with the ever talented Bethany of Images by Bethany of Vancouver.  Always excited to photograph at a new venue or location...I loved scoping out the areas surrounding their ceremony site and was so excited to find a gorgeous nut farm near by...perfect for the couples first peek of each other.   The Mother of the Bride played a huge role in creating the gorgeous table settings with lavender tones & exquisite florals.
