I feel completely overwhelmed by all the love and support my business has received over this past year. Never in my life did I think I could have a ‘job’ that I love as much as I do. A ‘job’ that has clients who are more like friends, a’job’ that I’m excited to go to everyday, and a job that is completely different and more amazing everyday. I have also been so fortunate to have traveled to some pretty amazing destinations documenting this incredibly special time in people’s lives, and this makes my heart so happy. 2015 has been the year of collaborating with so many unbelievably talented people. It is truly inspiring to be around such creative people all of the time, and Kamloops is lucky to have so many of these awesome people living in its city! The vendors and venues that go above and beyond to make each bride + groom’s day unique and special is absolutely incredible – you all are my favourite!
2015 was a big year of first for myself personally as well. My boyfriend and I bought our first house together, and then several months later we got engaged!!! After being a part of so many amazing weddings, it makes me sooo excited to be able to plan our own wedding in October 2016 and to marry the most wonderful, compassionate, handsome, loyal, and all around amazing man of my dreams!!! 2016 is going to be another amazing year!
To all my brides and grooms who trust in my vision, and allow me to have complete creative control when it comes to their photos; to you, I am forever grateful. Happy 2016 to you all! xo
Biggest thanks to ALL the AMAZING vendors and venues who make all this possible!!!
When I first met Bre + Matt they told me that they were born in the wrong era. It’s one of the many things that I like about the two of them because I also feel as though I was born in the wrong era! They are completely unique, and they both have super rad personalities. I love that they like old cars, guns, and tattoos (Bre’s arm of portraits is one of the most spectacular works of art I’ve ever seen), and they have a Husky and a Pomeranian as pets (I love Pomeranians!). To top it all off, they rented the Tranquille Farm Fresh grounds for us to shoot their engagement photos on so that they would have something a little different than everyone else. You have to love that! I’m also sure you’ll notice that Bre is stunningly beautiful and Matt is so ruggedly handsome – could these two get any better? We spent the afternoon taking photos in front of the old buildings, the corn fields, and the incredible back country of the property that has views, fields, a creek and more! These two give me the feels, and I am so stoked to be a part of their engagement photos and their wedding day! So much love to you both! xo

Ellie + Ian’s wedding day was exactly like the two of them! Ridiculously creative, amazingly fun, and super laid back! I’ve known Ellie since we worked together in Vancouver and I’ve always loved what a wonderful person she is; so when she asked me to photograph her and Ian’s wedding I was so excited to be a part of it. I absolutely love when couple’s come up with completely unique ideas for their wedding decor and theme, and when they personalize it so that it means something to the two of them. These two love dinosaurs and they incorporated them in the most amazing ways possible. Ellie walked down the aisle to the Jurassic Park theme song and their cake and decorations were adorned with T-Rex. You would think that a carnival theme could never fit in to it all – but they totally made it happen! Because they were married at Calgary Historical Heritage Park (which has a carnival inside the park) they had amusement rides, carnival games and festivities! Although it was a windy September day, nothing was wiping the smiles of their faces! These two were amazing all day, and I couldn’t have asked to spend a better day with anyone else! Thank you for having me capture your wedding day! xo
hahah one of the many reasons kids crack me up!
