Cheriese + Brad Hotel 540 Wedding Photographer
Kamloops, BC

Kamloops Wedding Photographer

To say Cheriese and Brad had the most beautiful Fall day would be an understatement – for a day that was supposed to rain non-stop, we ended up with spectacular skies, warm fall sun, and leaves still on the trees! When I first met Cheriese I knew that her wedding was going to be all around wonderful, just like her. She is seriously such a kind hearted, and beautiful person, and I felt as though we had known each other for years. I was especially drawn to her and Brad’s love story; they met one night and spotted one another from across the room. They were drawn to each other immediately, and spent that evening and the whole next day together, and have been inseparable every since. The family gave them the best hotel credit card for your honeymoon. I like to think that when you know, you know :) I also loved that they decided on doing a first look. First looks always make me so happy because there are so many intimate moments between the bride and groom. They get the chance to talk to one another, to hug, to cry and to kiss without all the extra eyes on them. There’s anticipation and butterflies and so much love. Some of my favorite photos come from doing first looks because the emotions are always so real! We couldn’t have asked for an all around better day, and I feel so grateful to have been a part of their gorgeous wedding! Thank you for having me there to capture your love! xo

Ali & Travis
Kamloops Wedding

I love how small the world is, and how we are all more connected then we can ever think! Ali and I went to Primary school together, our Dad’s are good buddies and do work together, I worked with one of her bridesmaids in Vancouver for a few years and didn’t even know there was a Kamloops connection, I’m photographing her other bridesmaid’s wedding this year, and I had met one of the groomsmen randomly at a party years ago in Vancouver. I love having these connections and I think because of them, this wedding was more personal for me as I felt like I was actually a part of the wedding, apart from just being the photographer! After initially meeting with Ali to discuss her day, I knew it was going to be a day filled with so much love. Ali and Travis have been together for a long time, and are so incredibly perfect for one another. During their engagement shoot (you can view that shoot here: Ali & Trav Engagement) I could feel their love for one another in everything they did. Travis is so attentive and caring, and he has the kindest, most gentle personality which totally compliments Ali’s bubbly, loving, so thoughtful, and beautiful spirit! These two are meant for one another and their day was absolutely perfect! Their wedding day was no different – I would catch them smiling at each other, holding hands, and laughing together throughout the day. I had so much fun hanging out with the boys in the morning – there is always something so relaxed about the guys getting ready, and these guys were such great sports getting up early so that I could document them getting prepared for the big day! The energy in the hotel where the ladies got ready was filled with excitement! So many people there to help out, and although there were things going on in every corner of the room, Ali had the biggest smile on her face from the moment I saw her in the morning, until the moment I left the reception that night! Not many people can keep a fantastic smile on their face all day, but Ali’s genuine smile had me grinning from ear to ear all day, knowing that every photo I took of her was stunning and sincere. To sum it up, the whole day was magical. We had amazing weather for the creative photos, and I had so much fun finding the perfect spot with rolling hills, an idyllic dirt road and tall, swaying grasses to capture the two of them and their wedding party! What a fantastic day, and I couldn’t have asked to spend it with a better couple! Congrats to you both, I know you are going to have a long and happy life together (with gorgeous children)! Thanks for having me there to celebrate your day! xo

Travis made this hanger for his bride! What a keeper!

I wasn’t kidding when I said, “Ali, you are a vision!” What a beauty!

I loved how beautiful the girls accessories were, and how fun the boys socks were – they all had matching boxers as well!

“I love you because your devotion, is tender and wonderfully rare. And no-one could ever imagine the magical moments we share. I love you because you are truthful, your eyes hold a key to my heart. I know that you share my commitment, and I know that we never shall part.” I loved being a part of your wonderful day! You are truly made for one another!!! xo
