Brett + Micah - Whytecliff Park Engagement Session - Vancouver Wedding Photographer

These two cuties met back in 2013 at a friends pool party (I remember the good old days when I used to get invited to those, back when I was a cool kid🙈) they dated long distance ever since.

A few years later he took her out to a nice dinner in White rock followed by a nice walk on the beach, where as no one was around and it conveniently started raining as he got down on one knee!! (totally getting Jim and Pam vibes here 💞)

We adventured together up at Whytecliff Park in North Vancouver and got to enjoy hanging out capturing some portraits in the beautiful warm golden sun on a perfect February evening. Don’t be fooled by her pretty face. Micah is a hardcore personal trainer, so if anyone needs to get their butt whipped into shape, she’s your girl!! Click here to check out her instagram.

ONEDAYWORKSHOP - Gabe McClintock - Attendee Photos - Pacific Spirit Regional Park, Vancouver BC

Back in December I had the Privilege of learning from one of my favourite photographers Gabe McClintock. I’ve admired his work for over the past 5 years, coming across his work when I was in search of our own wedding photographer! (can’t believe this year is 5 years for Taylor and I!)

We learned his tips and tricks and he gave us great advice and didn’t hold anything back! I had such a great time learning from him and seeing how he shoots during his “connection sessions”. These are my images taken during our live shoot at Pacific Spirit Regional Park.

5 Ways to Feel Comfortable in Front of the Camera

I’ve heard it time and time again;

“The camera hates me”

“Me and the camera aren’t friends”

“I’m awkward in front of the camera”

Yet, every time the pictures turn out amazing and no one would believe me if i told them what these people thought prior to our session.

Its super important that clients feel comfortable around us as this greatly affects the outcome of their photos. With this in mind, I’ve created a list of my Top 5 ways to feel comfortable in front of the camera to help both fellow photographers and clients feel comfortable and be themselves so that they can make photo magic together!

They had a beautiful back yard wedding with vintage decor, Rice Krispie cake, dancing, sparklers and even a surprise firework show! Nothing was more beautiful than the amount of sheer love and happiness from the family and friends that joined them in celebrating their special day.

Mike & Hailey - Wedding - Cowichan Exhibition Centre, Duncan BC

We don’t get many chances to visit Vancouver Island, but we enjoyed the nice ferry ride and weekend away to photograph Mike and Hailey’s Wedding Mellor Hall at the Cowichan Exhibition Centre last May. They had access to 35 acres of grassy fields that overlooked nearby mountains, and I was nothing short of ecstatic when I saw the pictures online. I’m such a sucker for people in beautiful landscapes and I could not wait until the evening to take advantage of these two with the golden sun setting behind them with shady trees and the mountain backdrop.

Derrick & Sophie - Adventure Engagement Session at Lynn Canyon, North Vancouver

When Sophie told me they are both "super goofy and a little immature", I knew we had to do something that would reflect that aspect of their relationship.  I suggested that after they take some nice formal photos, we all jump into the water together and splash around to grab some AMAZING candids (Yes i was butt deep in the water with a SARAN-wrapped camera telling them to splash water towards me, while Taylor was standing in the water a few feet away grabbing a different angle.  Some may call us a little crazy) . I almost feel that I had more fun with this than they did!

Little did they know this would be their life for the next 23 hours. A team of two, breaking through the pain together, with their doula and midwife by their side and me on the other.  Being able to document this important journey brings huge waves of emotions. But most of all, being able to witness the huge amount of love that a husband and wife show for each other during this stressful and joyous time, is an opportunity that I will never take for granted.  This is the story of Myca & Jay, and the journey they travelled together to bring their son Haus into this world.
