Brittany + Jon Love the Dress Anniversary Photographer
Kamloops, BC

Trash the dress Anniversary Photographer

Brittany is the co-owner of Aglow Bridal Store in Kamloops and she is the type of person to get so excited about weddings and dresses and things that are sparkly. When she said that she was disappointed with her wedding photos from 5 years ago and that she wanted to do an anniversary session, I was so excited to be the one chosen to re-do these photos. Jon is so kind and wonderful and he never stops smiling at Brittany – anyone in the wedding industry knows him as one of the behind the scenes guys who is always helping set up + tear down an elaborate wedding! Brittany was so cute throughout the session and although she was a little nervous in front of the camera at the beginning (like most women are) as soon as Jon snuggled her in, she would laugh and smile and just glow with happiness! Brittany is also one of the most generous people I’ve ever met as she’s lent me countless dresses and accessories from her bridal store for stylized shoots. Kamloops brides (and other vendors) are so lucky to have such wonderful people in town who will treat your wedding day as though it is their own!

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 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!
