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

4 weeks…4 weeks until these two say “We do!!” So super excited to share their day with them in Richmond…especially after seeing how much they adore each other from this engagement session in Fort Langley. Kylie Rae loved the idea of balloons as a part of the day…so sweet…and so we wandered with balloons, laughed and enjoyed the evening in Fort Langley. I had a blast and am so thrilled for them as they get married soon.


The more I get to know this couple the more I adore them. Not only are they super creative, with mad DIY skills…but they also drive a scooter…on trips. They are awesome. And their wedding was incredible. So thoughtful, relaxed and classy. Their ceremony at St Joseph’s Parish in Port Moody was beautiful…such a sweet church. And they had a bagpiper…yep…awesome, eh? And then their reception was at the Vancouver Golf Club which is gorgeous…the most beautiful alley of trees for an entrance. But…the Vancouver Golf Club is actually not in Vancouver…but in Coquitlam. Crazy, eh? I might have to ask them one day how that came about…or if you know comment here!!

The details that were done were amazing: DIY scrabble cufflinks, DIY centrepieces, all the flowers were dried and homemade, late night sweets homemade too, and the cake was just a small store cake with a pretty topping and no one knew! Amazing, eh?

The only thing that could have made the day better? Their scooter…I wish it was the going away vehicle!!!

Christie & Malcolm…thank you for bringing me along for your adventure…I LOVED it and can’t wait to hear of all your fun adventures to come.

    A beautiful story in puctures of a very happy day! I cried all over againReplyCancel

  • Christie - June 1, 2015 - 11:09 pm

    We considered the scooter as our wedding vehicle but figured it would just mess up Malcolm’s hair ;)
    Thanks for this beautiful post Damara!ReplyCancel
