I love backyard weddings! Jess and Braden had their wedding at Jess’ parents’ heritage house in Kelowna and it was such a charming, beautiful place for a wedding. Vintage Origami put so much love, thought and creativity into the decor, as always. The whole yard looked amazing and the book and paper-flower wall was SO amazing. Jess and Braden are such a fun couple and I love that they made photo requests like “Photo of my brother and I reading Harry Potter,” and “Braden playing road hockey with his buddies.” Their personalities were woven into every part of the day and, as a photographer, that is always so fun to photograph and capture. : ) Oh and did I mention they had a delicious vegetarian buffet!? Nom nom. Such a fantastic day!

Jess requested a shot of her and her brother doing one of their favourite pastimes – reading Harry Potter. : )
Thanks for choosing me to capture your awesome day guys! Huge congrats!
Lauren and Jevan first won my heart when they took my recommendation to eat at Momo Sushi after our engagement session and ordered the “Jessica Roll.” Long story but it’s a real thing and you should try it. They won my heart a second time when they recommended the Jessica Roll to all their guests in their wedding speech. ; D Lauren and Jevan ended up booking their day on the hottest weekend of the summer (hello heat wave!). We all chugged water and made the best of it and it was such a fantastic day! Lauren and Jevan are such a fun, lighthearted duo. The beautiful Summerhill Pyramid Winery was where the magic took place and Stage Right Etc did their thing and decked the place out beautifully. The vintage book table numbers they did really popped – loved them! DJ Haymaker was amazing as always, getting everyone laughing hysterically and keeping the energy up high for the night. I had Katie Nugent second shoot for me and she was wonderful as always! You’ll see some of her great shots below. : )

Jenn and Ash emit so much tranquility and joy. It was a wonderful experience capturing their day and love for one another. They chose the beautiful and unique God’s Mountain Estate in Penticton, BC and I was so excited to shoot there again. I always feel like I’m visiting a long lost relative in Europe when I go to this place. It’s so transporting and there are so many vintage treasures and unique rooms throughout the place. I would be surprised if this place didn’t have some secret passageways. : D We had lovely overcast skies most of the day which gave lovely light for photos and kept the intense summer heat at bay. I had the wonderful Katie Nugent second-shooting with me for the day as well! Such a lovely day. I’m so happy for these two!!
I love the cute moment my second shooter, Katie Nugent, captured, below right, of Jenn & her Dad before they started walking down the aisle. : )
