Jodie & James – Kelowna Engagement

Jodie and James are such a rad duo. I loved that they really showed their personalities through their outfits and had fun with it! James’ jacket converts into a straitjacket so we of course had to do a photo with that. haha. I love that Jodie is a total sweetheart but has an inner bad-ass too. I made the observation that their engagement shoot was a little like the movie Grease – girl starts out in dress and ends up in leather jacket. ; ) I can’t wait to photograph James and Jodie’s wedding in October!

Jess & Braden – Kelowna Wedding

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!

Lauren & Jevan – Summerhill Winery Wedding

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. : )
