My nephew graduated. Awesome, eh? Being Auntie means I get full reign of photos and also the priveledge of getting to hang out all day and spending time with him is the best part. What an interesting guy he is and my sister and her husband have raised an incredible young man. He is also incredibly handsome!! Doesn’t he remind you of an English Duke from Downton Abby?

When people say time flies…well it is moments like these that truly make me realize it. 6 yearsish, minus a few months, ago Megan was my teacher’s assistant at school and spent much of her May organizing my wedding. She inherits her master planning skills from her family…her sisters are incredible and kept much of my school life and basketball coaching organized…AMAZING.

Through the years and various weddings and cutest nephew, we have kept in touch and I am so honoured to have done their engagement photos in November. Megan met the most wonderful guy, Ryan, and it was such fun getting to see the one that has touched her heart. They are so sweet together and I hope you enjoy the photos as much as I enjoyed being with them on that cold November afternoon.

Megan and Ryan…you are truly wonderful. Thank you for sharing your time and stories with me.

Writing about this day is so special to me. Not only was it an absolutely perfect Vancouver Wedding experience…Spanish Banks ceremony…reception at the Celebration of Water boat that overlooked Vancouver…fireworks in the evening…photos around Vancouver…but it was also the wedding of a very special person that I had known for a long time. The day was perfect.

I loved so much being a part of this day and seeing two people so well matched come together. Hillary, Kevin…thank you. Thank you for having me a part of your day and bringing me into your family for the time. I loved the time we got to spend together and look forward to hearing all the life stories to come.

Much love,

    Damara it was a pleasure working with you and I am blown away by your incredible pictures.

    Thanks for the amazing memories.ReplyCancel

Extended family portraits are such a wonderfully special time when everyone is together, which does not often happen, and there are kids and grandkids and imports and the excitement of the entire clan being in the same place. The photo part is perhaps not always a joy for everyone:) ha! But it is such an important way to remember the time and to look back on in the months and years to come. I have old family photos on my walls…and love seeing the clothes and the people and I remember when those photos were taken and the memory of the fun we had together.

It was wonderful when Andrea contacted me to do their family portraits. We went to high school together and catching up was another perk of spending time together wandering Derby Reach. She has a wonderful family now and as you can see not only are they uber photogenic but they also love being together. Their laughter and ease with one another is lovely. Aylen’s…thank you for having me document your life now. I hope these photos bring back wonderful memories for years to come.

This was a wedding that felt like I was coming home. The old neighbourhood. People I had known since first day of Kindergarten at Peterson Road Elementary. A backyard wedding that had sweetness and thoughtful details. A small group of dear family and friends. Fort Langley photos with the beach, a pub and some of the awesomest kids around. It was perfection and I felt so privileged to be there with Dave and Natalie. Not only was the wedding detailed to perfection in her parents yard…it was also planned from afar as the couple lives in Alberta…amazing, eh?!

Natalie planned the for a relaxing and fun day: getting ready with her girls, ceremony on the lawn, a nice sized photo time at the house (an ice cream truck showed up! AND NEVER NEVER NEVER did an ice cream truck come down our roads growing up…so this was childhood special too…fulfilling all the summer dreams), photos in Fort Langley that also included some alone time at the new pub in town…the Trading Post Brewery, a reception at the Little White House and dancing and evening desserts(cakes made by her sister) at her parents home after. It was so relaxing and I love that they carved out some time to sit and be together alone…enjoying a drink…before the reception.

Dave, Natalie…truly…such an honour to be able to spend this time with you. Everything was amazing and my heart is so full…spending this time editing and seeing your faces and loving on this day has been incredible. Thank you for entrusting your memories to me.
