My first solo gig as a wedding photographer.  Joanna + Ray make it onto my blog twice in a row!  With good reason…

What?!  Whoa.  Yup.  I’m pretty proud of this.  My entire heart and soul goes into every single couple and family that I work with – but this wedding will always be special to me.  Always.  I will always remember the afternoon I received the message from Joanna, excitedly exclaiming that they were officially tying the knot.  I had done a family session with them a couple months prior, and I immediately fell in love with this amazing little family, so I was ridiculously stoked when I looked in my inbox to her exclaiming that they had found a venue, but were holding off on scheduling the actual date until they knew for sure they could book me.  BIGGEST COMPLIMENT EVER, guys.

They had an intimate wedding with a lot of handmade details at an absolutely lovely winery in Abbotsford.  A hidden gem – Seaside Pearl Farmgate Winery.  They had family fly in from out of the country.  It was so mellow and warm.  True to Joanna and Ray’s characters, it was incredibly welcoming.  As a hired photographer, I genuinely felt like part of the family.  Thank you so much you two!  Your glowing souls are refreshing.

This wedding was full of love, laughter, hugs, smiles, and genuinely heartfelt moments.  ♥

I could barely sleep the night before.  I couldn’t decide what to wear the following day.  I was worried about lighting.  I was worried about the weather.  I was worried about my shoes.  I’m not sure this nervousness will ever fully dissipate, but it certainly keeps me on my toes.  I genuinely love capturing these intimate moments.

I wholeheartedly enjoy capturing these special moments.  It’s my passion, through and through.  What can I say?  I love love!
