Jenna and Andrew got married last year at Burrowing Owl Winery and had miserable weather among other surprises for their wedding day. So they decided to come back a year later for their one year anniversary! Little did Andrew know that Jenna had prepared a very thoughtful surprise for him to celebrate! She called up their marriage commissioner James Harnden to renew their vows and phoned me to come and capture it and take some portraits afterward! It was quite fun to be in on the surprise and I was so happy that Jenna and Andrew got perfect weather this time around for their vows!! These two are so in love. The really romantic storybook kind of love. I can still see them doing things like this for each other when they’re 70 years old. : ) Jenna is cute as well as funny. She cracked me up at one point during our session when she said, “Who knew off-roading in Badgley Mischka‘s was going to be so much fun!” Andrew is really friendly as well as a complete gentleman (he picked like 30 poky burrs off my socks that were digging into me- what a nice guy!).
I adore Burrowing Owl Winery (you really feel like you’re in Italy when you’re there) and was excited to take photos there!! I love taking day trips through the Okanagan and down to Burrowing Owl Winery in Oliver. I even did a blog post on a nice little day trip I did there last summer. : )
Andrew had a surprise of his own for Jenna and got her a beautiful diamond band from Tiffany’s.
Bri and Shayne got married in BC this summer and it was such a busy day that they didn’t get a chance to get many shots of just the two of them with their photographer. So they called me up and hired me to do a shoot with them in their wedding attire so they could capture that! I thought it was a wonderful idea as I know how fast people always say their wedding day goes and this was a chance for them to slow down and be in the moment together to get some special shots.
I took them to one of my favourite locations that I have only used once before (if I didn’t feel the need to mix it up, I could probably go back here for every shoot I love it so much haha).
Bri is a total glow-bug and has such a good heart! Shayne and Bri clearly adore each other! : ) I wish them so much happiness in their future! I got to do a boudoir session with her as well this summer and we had a lot of fun together. I love when clients I love come back for more shoots! : )
Bri hired me to do a boudoir session as a surprise wedding gift for her soon-to-be-husband. The day of her shoot, she drove down to Kelowna from Kamloops and Melissa Craven did a beautiful job as always with Bri’s makeup. The time it takes to do makeup is always nice before a shoot because it gives us a chance to chat and loosen up nervous energy that a woman usually feels before a boudoir session. : ) Bri was a natural and had a beautiful glow and inner smile about her. We got some fantastic shots and she was nice enough to let me share a few below! Thanks again Bri!
