Sparkling Hill Resort & Silverstar helicopter wedding – Robyn & Lou

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!

Quail’s Gate Winery wedding, Kelowna, BC – Stephanie & Stephane

Stephanie and Stephane have one of those special storybook loves that you can’t help but feel warm and fuzzy about when you see them interact. They’re so affectionate and in sync with each other. It’s wonderful to watch! I first met them in the spring for a maternity session and they welcomed their adorable son Clarke into the world in July. You’ll see him sporting a pretty spiffy little tux. ; )
Stephanie and Stephane chose the amazing Quail’s Gate Winery in West Kelowna, BC for their wedding. The views from Quail’s Gate are stunning to say the least and it made for incredible backdrops! It was a day full of love and laughter with a focus on family and everything that is important.
Thank you very much to the wonderful Katie Nugent for second shooting for me for this wedding!

Okanagan Wedding Photographer – Emily & James

What an amazing whirlwind day!! I had the best time with Emily and James at their engagement session and was so excited for their wedding! Plus I just love gingers and I was surrounded by them between Emily, James and their amazing wedding planner Sara from Top Knot Events. ; D Among the surprises that pop up on a wedding day, we ended up having only an hour for portraits, but we managed to pull it off and luckily we had beautiful light to work with! Thanks so much to Katie Nugent for the help and second shooting for me!
The guests matched James and Emily’s upbeat energy and zest for life – there was such a lively feel to the day, not to mention the dance floor! Emily and James are so in love and their personal vows were some of the sweetest I’ve ever heard. I adore that Emily wears her heart on her sleeve and that love positively radiates from her. So happy for these two!!
