Taryn and Jason caught the most amazing timing for their engagement session with the gorgeous blooming balsamroot flowers in Kelowna. It’s a beautiful explosion of yellow that I look forward to every year.
Taryn and Jason were so natural together and wonderful to work with – I can’t wait to photograph their big day in July at Cedar Creek Winery and the Harvest Golf Club!
Lindsay is my favourite spin instructor at Oranj in Kelowna and I’ve always melted over her adorable kids who are named after an Italian town (Lucca) and colloquialism (Allora!). Lindsay and I bond over our love of Italy, Costa Rica and all places warm and make each other hyper over our excitement for stuff. She’s one of those people that beams positivity and sunshine literally radiates from her. I never fail to leave one of her spin classes feeling pumped – it’s so contagious! So I was pretty darn excited to photograph this sweet family! I had such a great time!!
Teehee, the photo below makes me giggle so much. So hilarious.
What a fun, wild ride of a day! Robyn and Lou chose a unique combo of having their ceremony on a mountaintop at Silverstar Mountain Resort and then their reception at the stunning Sparkling Hill Resort in the Gernot’s room (my fave!). After everyone got ready, my second shooter, Katie Nugent, and I split up – her, going with the groom and guests, and me, staying with the bride to wait for the helicopter to pick us up for the ceremony. So fun! The fog on the mountain had a personality of its own and rolled in, creating a super cool atmosphere for their ceremony, and then rolled out about 20 minutes after. haha. Classic. The day was full of surprises and delays, including only having an hour in the end to do family photos and wedding party photos but I was so impressed with how Robyn and Lou totally just ran with it. Everything worked out fantastic in the end and those surprises only made the day more of a memorable adventure. Robyn and Lou were so fun to work with and feel like new friends. Robyn gave Katie and I the most thoughtful gifts on her wedding day. Always thinking of others – so sweet. Speaking of Katie Nugent, a huge shout out and thanks to her for her wonderful work!
Cute dad moment (and socks). Honeymoon shirts! Now we switch to Katie’s perspective, at Silverstar Resort with Lou and the guests! Back to Sparkling Hill! Time for our helicopter ride!A few shots below by Katie, capturing us attempting to land in the fog. It wasn’t safe for the helicopter to land in the fog so off to Plan B! We landed lower and the Silverstar staff was amazing and speedy grabbing a truck to take us up.The temperature dropped when the fog rolled in and the feet of one of the bridesmaid’s got super cold, so her Dad gave her his shoes. : ) These groomsmen were hilarious and could not keep it together. Loved their “Sears Portrait” idea, bottom left. Hehe.I yelled out “Kiss!” but I guess I forgot to specify who. haha. So funny.
You two are the best!!! Congratulations again!! : D
