Kelly and Todd = super fun shoot! Kelly is the kind of girl that is so bubbly and herself that you immediately feel like you’ve always been friends and Todd is down to earth and looks at Kelly with so much love it kinda melts your heart. Look how natural these two are together in front of the camera- I love it! Within 5 minutes of the session, we were already goofing off with each other and laughing our heads of. I love my job!
These two are getting married at Spirit Ridge Vineyard in Osoyoos this summer and I’m already so excited for it!! Thanks so much for completely being yourselves and letting me capture that!
Ashley contacted me about doing a photo session for her family to celebrate her mom’s Birthday! Ashley and I graduated together back in 2003 and it was fun to see her again. She also got married this past summer in Vancouver to Richard who also joined them for the session as the newest addition to their family. We had beautiful weather the day of their shoot at Bertram Park in Kelowna. Little did Ashley’s mom know that her family had also planned a surprise birthday party for her later that day! I immediately clicked with the whole family and they all felt like old friends! We had a great time (I have such fun clients!) and their session flew by.
I hear the surprise party was a great success as well and Pat had no idea they had planned anything! Thanks again guys!
It was so fun to finally jump into my local 2011 wedding season and Alison and Ryan’s wedding in Kamloops was such a fantastic one to start with. Alison is so thoughtful – she was always asking in her emails if I had all the info I needed and if there was anything she could do for me– how sweet is that! What is the word for the opposite of a bridezilla? haha. Ryan was so great and laid back as well and just let me do my thing the day of! I swear I am so lucky with all the wonderful clients I get! They all rock!
Alison actually went to school for photography (I’ve seen some of her stuff and it’s great) so it was really fun to work with a bride who already had a photographer’s eye. She was my eyes for spots to shoot in Kamloops and she chose a gorrrrgeous old heritage building to shoot at. I can’t tell you enough how much I loved shooting at this place. The light was so beautiful and there were so many unique spots to shoot at inside and outside of it. Jessica Balfour came and second shot for me for the day (thanks Jess!) and she was as in love with the place as I was! : ) Check out her post from the day on her blog!
Alison and Ryan had their ceremony and reception at Thompson River University in Kamloops. They had around 220 guests and the venue perfectly accommodated the larger crowd. Alison did all the decor along with her mom and sister! The room had such a nice country chic feel to it. They personalized each table with different flowers that had a wonderful wildflower look to it all, along with doilies (I hear there was a lot of doily searching that took place!) as well as neat wooden crates, picture frame table numbers and antique furniture pieces (many of which were Alison’s grandparent’s) amongst everything. Alison and her mom also had many cakes made to accommodate all of the guests and made a variety of gorgeous cake plates out of vintage plates and overturned porcelain goblets for the plate stems. To top it all off, they had homemade jelly as wedding favours in a few different flavours. I got “Red Pepper Jelly” and it was so yummy! Much of work and love went into this wedding and you could tell!
Thank you again for letting me be a part of your big day Alison and Ryan!
Looooved these windows!
More gorgeous windows!
I was so impressed with the DIY decor that Alison did for her wedding with the help of her mom and sister!
How awesome is this fun, vintage photo booth Alison put together!?
