UBC Golf Course Wedding // Jeremy & Katrina

Not rain. Not cloudy skies. Not even an ankle so badly hurt that it had to be taped to the shape of the shoe and crutches used all evening. Not even THAT could stop this day from being absolutely fabulous.

My heart was just so happy all day getting to celebrate this couples Vancouver Wedding. I was so happy to photograph them again (engagement session here) but I was also thrilled to be able to photograph around my old UBC stomping grounds. After their ceremony at the Dunbar Evangelical Lutheran Church we worked our way around UBC and then the couple took a little break at the Wolf & Hound Pub…to share a pint before the ceremony. I LOVED this!! So relaxing and such a fabulous way to unwind for 30 minutes, take some alone time and then head into the reception. I want this to happen every time!

Their University Golf Club reception was beautiful. Katrina’s mother’s friend helped organize the reception decorations…amazing! Her mother made all the favours…those adorable macaroons…yep! ALL HAND MADE and DELICIOUS. The flower girl baskets were made by the moms as well. So many hands worked to make this wedding incredible and it was such a beautiful day.

A big thank you to Rose for coming out and working with me today too!!

Jeremy, Katrina…thank you for having me a part of your day. I love love loved it all and am in AWE that you made it through with that ankle!!!!! You are amazing.

Big hugs,

Crescent Beach Engagement Photos // Ryan & Susanne

He’s her Fabio. She’s his peanut poodle. She has a sweet way of leaning her head into him; he holds in her in just the right ways. They laugh and love so easily. The comfort between them is like soup on a warm night. I even wanted to snuggle in too:) ha!

Our time spent together with the engagement session at Crescent Beach was so wonderful. We planned it to have time to explore, play and relax during the sunset. The light was incredible and I love the warmth in the photos that was captured.

Susanne, Ryan…thank you so much for taking the time to hang out. I loved getting to see how YOU LOVE and our time together on the wedding day is going to be amazing. Big hugs! damara

The Harvest Kelowna Wedding Part 1 // Steve and Jennie

Kelowna Wedding Photographer

the Harvest wedding photographer

This Kelowna wedding has been on my mind a lot lately and I am so so so excited to be ready to share it with you all! This is Part 1…so stay tuned to Part 2 coming tomorrow.

I met Steve and Jennie a few years earlier at her brother’s wedding. At that point they had been dating awhile, wanted a few photos together, and seemed completely smitten. Fast forward a few years and I had the honour of being in Kelowna with them on their wedding day…and it as SO MUCH FUN!! Jennie got ready at her parents place on the lake and it was there that we had their first look and took the majority of their portraits. I loved that they had just family there and met up with the bridal party at the Harvest for the ceremony and party. Jennie and Steve’s personalities shine…they radiate fun and joy and honesty. It was such a refreshing and wonderful day to be a part of.

Steve, Jennie…thank you for having me a part of your wedding day. It was such a wonderful experience. What amazing families and friends you have!!! Can’t wait to share Part 2 tomorrow!

I just loved the pre-wedding photos at the cottage! You captured some beautiful picturesque scenes of Jennie and Steve down at the lake. Most importantly, you caught their “love” for each other and the humour between the two of them so expertly. It made me remember that beautiful and memorable wedding day all over again. Great job!
