Sierra & Andy | Married | Kamloops

If there is anything  I have learned about people that live or work in the country, it is that they can say more with their silences than most can with all the words available to them. Andy and Sierras day was filled with laughter and smiles. And the looks these two shared spoke volumes. Thank you, you two, for letting us be a part of your amazing wedding in Kamloops!

Alexis & Steven | Married | Kamloops BC

It is rare that I tear up at a wedding. Don’t take this as callousness, but usually I am focused on the image, and capturing the moments for our couples. But at Alexis and Steven’s wedding I had to put the camera down many times during the day, and just be a part of such an incredible celebration. Some moments can’t be described in photos or words, and will exist only memory. I will treasure these ones, as one of the most incredible events I’ve had the pleasure of shooting in all my years of working as a photographer.

Thank you, Alexis and Steven.

Alizée & Clayton | Married | Chase BC.

 You may remember from my posting of Clayton and Alizées engagement photos, that the moments created by these two were magical. And it felt in a way, as if I were intruding on something that if interrupted, or startled, would disappear like a spring fawn. On their wedding day however, the love these two have for each other encompassed everyone involved in their wedding. You could not help but be caught up in the tidal pull of their personalities. It has been my great pleasure to know Alizée and Clayton for many years, and the honour of being there to capture their day was humbling. Here’s to two of the finest people I have had the pleasure of meeting in my travels. Congratulations Alizée and Clayton.

“May your joys be as sweet as spring flowers that grow. 
As bright as a fire when winter winds blow,
As countless as leaves that float down in the fall,
As serene as the love that keeps watch over us all.”

Alizee & Clay | Vancouver , BC | Engaged

“Once upon a time there was a boy who loved a girl, and her laughter was a question he wanted to spend his whole life answering.” – Nicole Krauss.

What an appropriate quote for this couple. I have rarely witnessed a smile, that once presented, become so instantly and infectiously mirrored on her partners face that it was as if it had always been there, not hidden per say, just kept especially for her. I realized then that it had been, and that the joy in Clays eyes was a constant thing. I felt almost as if I were intruding on something magical, these moments the two of them shared on the Spanish Banks in Vancouver, BC, and I found myself  shaking my head in wonder. What an incredible love to see, and what an honour to have been asked to be part of their wedding. Thank you, Alizee and Clay. Enjoy a little teaser of their engagement photos!

I have spent the last half an hour attempting to type this. I write a few lines, rewrite them, delete them. And start all over. And I am afraid, as cliche as it sounds, there really are no words to describe how amazing today has been. Chris was the best man at my wedding, and has been as close to me as family for my entire adult life. When he and Obe approached me about being the godfather for their – then – soon to be son, I was speechless. Those that know me realize how rare of an occurrence this is, and will attach the appropriate significance to any situation that renders me mute. I was honoured, and was incredibly thankful for the chance to be there today to hold Max. As I was sitting in the chair, Obe drifted off for some much needed sleep, and Chris lay back, the coffee I had brought him obviously having no effect on his weariness. I sat there for over an hour, listening to the breathing of this little miracle.

.
Its not often I post personal things on this site, but it was truly a pleasure to be able to grab a few quick snaps of Max. While I, and many others, potentially lost money on the betting pool in regards to his hair colour, the nurse informed me that babies hair colour can change, so our hope for a ginger baby is still alive and well.
.
Congratulations Obe and Chris. You two will make wonderful parents, and thank you for allowing me to be there.
