Fraser Family | Barriere Portrait Photographer
Barriere, BC

Kamloops Family Photographer

What I love most about growing up in a small town is that you end up knowing most of the people in the community, and the Fraser family is no exception! It was so wonderful seeing them all together for this shoot and I absolutely loved getting to see their beautiful property in it’s fall glory (another advantage of living in a small town!) I loved that all of the kids were in town for a wedding the day before (that I got to photograph as well!), and that they all were so happy to be together just joking with each other and just hanging out! What I really loved was how well the boyfriends/girlfriends fit in to the family dynamic – so seamless! There were so many laughs throughout the day, and so many inside stories about the property (like how the church had been there for ages but that it was still a functioning church for the area)! We had had quite cold weather leading up to the shoot but we were blessed with a beautiful sun kissed fall day for their portrait session, which made it that much more memorable! I couldn’t have asked for a more fun family to photograph that day, and I was so glad to be a part of it! So much love to you all!!! xo

Kim + Jacob Rustic Wedding Photographer
Kamloops, BC

kamloops wedding photographerI couldn’t have asked for a better couple to spend my last wedding of the year (at least in Canada) with! When Kim and I first chatted about her wedding day she was worried that the end of October would too cold to have the ceremony outside (especially because we did their family/engagement photos at the end of October last year and it was a little chilly!- you can see those here) but thankfully we had the most beautiful fall day for their wedding. There was the faintest hint of rain, but only long enough to produce a beautiful rainbow – with the rest of the day filled with sunshine and warmth! The whole day was like something out of a country western magazine – it was the most beautiful country rustic wedding I’ve seen, and all the details were perfect! Kim was a vision of beauty with her lace gown, her pop of color with her bouquet and of course her ridiculously amazing veil! She is also such a sweetheart and such a great mom – I love how kind she is an how her smile is so genuine! Jacob is also so wonderful – he’s so easy going and he is the true definition of a gentleman! I love that he and Kim have two fantastic kids together and that they are such self sufficient and relaxed kids! Seeing all the love and support from everyone in their community made it that much more of a fun and wonderful day and I felt so lucky to be a part of a wedding filled with so much love and happiness! So much love to you both! xo kamloops wedding photographerkamloops wedding photographerkamloops wedding photographerkamloops wedding photographerkamloops wedding photographer kamloops wedding photographer kamloops wedding photographerkamloops wedding photographer kamloops wedding photographer kamloops wedding photographerkamloops wedding photographer kamloops wedding photographer kamloops wedding photographer kamloops wedding photographerkamloops wedding photographerkamloops wedding photographer kamloops wedding photographerkamloops wedding photographer kamloops wedding photographer kamloops wedding photographerkamloops wedding photographer kamloops wedding photographer kamloops wedding photographerstoryboard027 kamloops wedding photographer kamloops wedding photographer kamloops wedding photographer kamloops wedding photographerkamloops wedding photographer kamloops wedding photographer kamloops wedding photographerkamloops wedding photographer kamloops wedding photographer kamloops wedding photographer kamloops wedding photographer kamloops wedding photographer kamloops wedding photographer kamloops wedding photographer kamloops wedding photographer kamloops wedding photographerkamloops wedding photographerkamloops wedding photographerkamloops wedding photographerkamloops wedding photographerkamloops wedding photographerkamloops wedding photographerkamloops wedding photographer kamloops wedding photographerkamloops wedding photographerkamloops wedding photographerkamloops wedding photographer kamloops wedding photographer kamloops wedding photographer kamloops wedding photographerkamloops wedding photographerkamloops wedding photographerkamloops wedding photographer kamloops wedding photographerkamloops wedding photographer kamloops wedding photographerkamloops wedding photographerkamloops wedding photographer kamloops wedding photographerkamloops wedding photographerkamloops wedding photographerkamloops wedding photographerkamloops wedding photographer kamloops wedding photographer kamloops wedding photographer kamloops wedding photographerkamloops wedding photographerkamloops wedding photographerkamloops wedding photographerkamloops wedding photographer kamloops wedding photographerkamloops wedding photographerkamloops wedding photographerkamloops wedding photographerkamloops wedding photographerkamloops wedding photographerkamloops wedding photographerkamloops wedding photographerkamloops wedding photographerkamloops wedding photographerkamloops wedding photographerkamloops wedding photographerkamloops wedding photographer kamloops wedding photographerkamloops wedding photographerkamloops wedding photographerkamloops wedding photographerkamloops wedding photographerkamloops wedding photographerkamloops wedding photographerkamloops wedding photographerkamloops wedding photographerkamloops wedding photographer kamloops wedding photographer kamloops wedding photographerkamloops wedding photographer kamloops wedding photographer kamloops wedding photographerkamloops wedding photographerkamloops wedding photographerkamloops wedding photographerstoryboard104storyboard105

Sam + Dominic Rustic Wedding Photographer
Barriere, BC

Rustic Kamloops Wedding Photographer

I’ve known Dominic since he was 3 years old because my best friend was his older sister. I remember Val and I conjuring up all sorts of ideas to terrorize and taunt him and he always had some tricks up his sleeve as well! Being a part of their family for so many years has made Dominic seem like another brother to me, and to watch him marry the love of his life and be a part of their day was a true honor. As always, I felt completely at home on the ranch, and it was such a perfect day for a wedding of so much warmth, love, and happiness. Sam and Dominic have been together for so many years now and I couldn’t think of a better fit for one other. Although he has a tough, manly, cowboy exterior, Dominic is such a gentleman and romantic when it comes to Sam. Sam is so beautiful and kind hearted, I’ve never heard her raise her voice or say a mean thing about anyone, and wow can her smile brighten up a room! I knew after their engagement shoot where we had horses and hay and hot summer nights (you can see those photos here) that their wedding would be just as epic; and of course it was. Sam rode in with her bridesmaids and groomsmen with two stunning horses leading the way to their rustic country ceremony! There was so much laughter, so much dancing and so much amazingness throughout the whole day, my face hurt from smiling so much when I got home. The way that weddings bring people together with so much love really makes me know that being a photographer is the best career in the world! So so so much love to you both! xoRustic Kamloops Wedding Photographer Rustic Kamloops Wedding Photographer Rustic Kamloops Wedding PhotographerRustic Kamloops Wedding Photographer Rustic Kamloops Wedding PhotographerRustic Kamloops Wedding PhotographerRustic Kamloops Wedding Photographer

Brady Family – Kamloops Portrait Photographer
Kamloops, BC

Kamloops Family PhotographerHow can you go wrong when a family has a gorgeous mom and dad, 4 adorable kids, their grandma, a pony(!), a dog, and some sheep? My answer is you can’t! I had so much fun getting to know this family during their session! Their property is just outside of Kamloops and is stunning! I was lucky to have cute little Jackson helping me pick out some awesome spots for their shoot – although their surroundings are so fantastic that no matter where you looked there were amazing photo opportunities! I loved how many laughs were shared between all of these cuties, and how great the kids were – I guess that’s what happens when your parents are both Principals! I also loved the affectionate way that mom and dad looked at one another when I stole them away to do a few of just the two of them! This was a fantastic way to spend a sunny afternoon and I couldn’t have asked for a better family to spend it with, thank you for choosing me to be your photographer! So much love to you all! xo    Kamloops Kamloops Family Photographer Photographer

Faith High School Graduation
Kamloops BC

Kamloops High School Graduation

Faith is like a part of our family – she’s been dating my little brother for just over two years now and over that time we have gotten quite close and I absolutely love her!! When she messaged me about her High School Graduation photos, I was ecstatic to photograph her again, but I knew that I wanted to make her session even more special! (see her other session here) Faith works for Candace at First Comes Love Gowns & Events, and when I called Candace to ask if we could maybe borrow another option for a grad dress for Faith, she suggested that we take out a wedding dress instead! I couldn’t refuse an offer like that! When she was trying on a few dresses, this one appeared and completely blew us all away! It’s the epitome of a princess fairytale dress and we had so much fun in such a gorgeous location! Faith’s graduation dress was also a knock out dress, and fit her personality so well. It was a show stopping dress that didn’t need a lot of embellishments to be noticed, and it unlike any grad dress I had ever seen. Faith fits all of these descriptions as well – she is such a beautiful person both inside and out and is one of the sweetest people I’ve ever met. She is soft spoken but has a smile and a laugh that would make any head turn! She is mature beyond her years and is all around just so lovely. Thank you for always trusting in  my wacky ideas (like scaling a steep hill to get to a mosquito infested forest and then barely dodging a huge rattlesnake!) xoKamloops High School Graduation Kamloops High School Graduation Kamloops High School Graduate Kamloops High School GraduationKamloops High School GraduationKamloops High School Graduate Kamloops High School GraduationKamloops High School Graduation Kamloops High School GraduationKamloops High School Graduation Kamloops High School GraduationKamloops High School GraduationKamloops High School GraduationKamloops High School GraduationKamloops High School GraduationKamloops High School Graduation Kamloops High School Graduation Kamloops High School GraduationKamloops High School Graduation Kamloops High School Graduation Kamloops High School Graduation Kamloops High School Graduation Kamloops High School Graduation Kamloops High School GraduationKamloops High School Graduation Kamloops High School Graduation Kamloops High School Graduation Kamloops High School Graduation

Jordi & Tanner Love the Dress
Kamloops, BC

Kamloops Wedding Photographer
What more can I say about these two incredible people? I’ve had the honor now of photographing them for a few different occasions, most recently for their amazing wedding at the Quaaout Lodge (you can see their photos here). The first day that I met Jordi I could tell instantly how sweet, adorable and wonderful she was, and I knew that we would become friends for sure! When we decided to do her “trash the dress” session in the winter, I was ecstatic! We both thought it would be the perfect season seeing how we had already shot in the Spring, Summer and the Fall! I knew their session would be extra fun because they are both always up for anything I suggest. I swear I could say, “okay for this one, let’s try swimming through the snow” and they would trust me enough to do it! Totally my kind of clients :) One of my favorite shots that I’ve ever taken is of the two of them in the middle of a bramble bush on their wedding day, and to get to that spot they had to climb through prickly bushes, dodge pokey branches and trek through a bunch of other stuff to make it to this impossibly hard to get to “perfect spot” that I always manage to want for the shot! So I knew when I wanted to incorporate fire, water and ice (oh and a bit of natural winter wind) for their shoot, there would be only excitement from them both! We had so much fun braving the cold (Jordi is a TROOPER!), trudging through the snow, and just having a great little day!!! Love you two to bits!

Faith Yurkiw
Kamloops

Faith is one of those girls who has got it all going on. She’s undeniably stunning, she’s adorable, she’s smart, and to top it all off she’s competing for the title of Miss Teen Canada this summer (plus she’s snagged a pretty good guy – my little brother!) She was such a wonderful model, and she has the ability to just “be” in front of the camera (a quality that I’m sure a lot of us wish we had!) We had so much fun wading through the daisies, placing bug infested flowers in her mouth and swimming in the lake! She’s such a great young lady to spend time with, and I really enjoyed our day together! I wish her all the best in the pageant, and I look forward to more creative shoots in the future! xo
