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.

This wedding is one that made me smile from the moment the day began. Not only are the couple GORGEOUS…wait till you see the dress!…but it was a beautiful day of family and friends celebrating in the best way possible: with great food, super fun dancing, personal details that brought so much to the day, wonderful guests and two people in love. There were many people dear to me at this wedding and getting to celebrate with these friends was amazing. A few highlights? A chocolate fondue fountain, the ring bearer “drove” down the aisle in his sportscar, signature drinks, flip flops for dancing, a wine boxing ceremony after the first kiss, amazing flowers, Hazelmere always has incredible food, date and advice jars, lace covered clothes pins (I know…such a small detail but it was so sweet, loved it), “live” music during the entire reception singing Megan’s favourite song, a breaking cake knife, 12 past students, 3 past basketball players, 2 past bride and grooms, one of my most favourite families ever…and Ryan and Megan. Megan and Ryan…thank you for having me a part of your wedding story…you are amazing.

What a dear family. There are so many images in here that I LOVE. Mainly because within them I see the love of parents, the endearing quirks of little children, the sweetness of adults with their dads and the joy that a father has in his children. It truly blows me away looking at images over time when working on them…and getting to see how much people cherish each other. This is the love that this family shared.

A few weeks ago I got to be part of an adventure…a ferry ride, short jaunt, foresty lodgings, incredible beach views, people in love, babies, loving family, welcome gifts, biggest baby eyes, super fun dancing, glow in the darkish cotton candy and pure, wonderful, joyful love. What an amazing wedding party Melissa and Brendan pulled off…truly…an unforgettable experience. The wedding took place at the Tigh-na-Mara resort in Parksville, which is beautiful and yet homey. Tigh-na-mara has also the kindest people working there…no lie. They really are the kindest and happiest employees…everyone was SO NICE and generous. Melissa’s family had vacationed there growing up, so the resort held significance to her and it definitely set the mood for a family weekend.

Melissa and Brendan…thank you. Thank you for bringing me into your family fold and having me a part of your lives and incredible day. You are beautiful people and I am excited to see the sweetness that Camden will undoubtably become. You collect the most wonderful people around you too…it was a gift getting to know your friends and family. I am excited about adventures to come:)

A thank you as well to the awesome vendors involved!! Dallas the Video Man:), Turly’s Florist, Coastal Cake Company, Peter at Sunwest DJ, and Bisou Bridal for the AMAZING dress.
