Kelowna Engagement Photography – Courtney & James

Courtney and James are such a great duo. I got the nicest email from Courtney’s mom when she saw the engagement photos:

“You validated my first comment to you, I think you’re a true artist. I have never seen anyone capture the inner Courtney, as only a close mom can know it, and James as I’m learning to know him. “

Awww – so sweet! Courtney and James are such a great duo and I can’t wait to photograph these two’s wedding this month!

Cedar Creek Winery & Hotel Eldorado wedding – Kim & Ryan

I knew Kim and Ryan were going to be a super fun couple to work with as soon as I heard about their awesome Superhero sub-theme. Such a cool interest for a couple to share! Their ceremony was at the elegant Cedar Creek Winery followed by the reception at the always fantastic Hotel Eldorado. I’m always impressed with how smoothly things go at both venues – great teams! I was super impressed with how White Orchid Wedding incorporated the superhero sub-theme and still maintained the elegant feel of a wedding. Hats off! My favourite decor detail were the amazing flowers Shawna from White Orchid made out of comic books. You could tell Ryan and Kim are really tight with their family and friends and the whole day had such a warm, upbeat energy to it.  So happy for these two!
