Giveaway Time!

Now that wedding season is officially over for me, I’ve had a bit of time to reflect back on what a year it’s been! It’s been my busiest year yet and I’m so damn thankful for all my wonderful clients who trust me to document their beautiful lives. As a small token of my appreciation, it’s time to do a giveaway!

I’m giving away $100 off any photo shoot (family, portraits, boudoir, even weddings!) AND a $50 Amazon gift card. Thank you all for being so wonderful and supporting my business.

Mel + Jen // Intimate Back Yard Victoria Wedding

I was looking forward to this wedding all summer long and it was everything I was thinking it would be and a hell of a lot more!!  This day was a bit different for me because I agreed to meet these two lovely ladies quite early downtown on a Saturday morning so we could do their portraits yet avoid the crowds. Best decision I’ve made in a long time!  The lighting was perfect and there was absolutely no one around!  I loooove an urban vibe so getting to hit the streets with these two brides was definitely a highlight of the summer.   Their personalities are so different yet they are the perfect match together. Jen who is quiet, sweet and reserved matched with Mel who is quick, outspoken and hilarious.  After our session downtown we all took a break and met up again quite a few hours later at Jen’s grandma’s house for their intimate backyard wedding.  It was the cutest damn setup I had ever seen!   I loved the inclusive vibe of the long table where everyone could converse and get to know each other (it was the first time their families had met since Mel’s family is from the States and live quite far away).  The ceremony was beautiful and intimate and you could tell there was so much love for these two to be starting the next chapter of their lives together.  After the ceremony we decided to sneak out for a few more pictures which may have included trespassing on someone’s super cool driveway but hey you gotta do what you gotta do for the cool shots.

 Jen & Mel – you are two gems.  I’m so happy for you and thankful I got to play a very small role in your special day. All the best in the future and I can’t wait to see you two again soon!

Personal Branding Sessions // Modern Headshots for Entrepreneurs in Victoria

In case you haven’t heard, I’m adding something a little different to my portfolio - personal branding sessions! I’m so so exited to work with female entrepreneurs to create not only the perfect head-shot for them but also photos that will tell the story of their brand and what they do on a day to day basis. These sessions can be whatever you want them to be and we will work together closely in the days leading up to your session so that your vision can become a reality. I even provide bomb ass hair and makeup so that you can look at feel your very best.

These sessions are geared towards women but I have had some men contact me with interest so I will be putting something together in the future with regards to you all as well!

I have a super fancy PDF I can send you if you would like more information on the how’s and why’s of these sessions so feel free to get in touch if you would like me to send it to you!

Here are a few from my recent session with the lovely Vanessa who will soon be launching Chodae, a custom wedding stationary company.

Lauren + Andrew // Victoria Wedding Photography // Parkside Hotel

Originally I was scheduled to work 3 hours at Lauren & Andrew’s wedding. After I delivered their engagement photos (which you can see here), they decided to book me for a full 8 hour day. WOOHOOO! It was the ultimate compliment. Especially because I could tell from our brief hangouts that their day was going to be so damn good. And it was. An intimate and urban wedding filled with the best people. There were so many memorable moments throughout the day including Lauren & Andrew’s emotional first look at St. Anne’s Academy to both of them almost bursting into tears during the ceremony (they both held it together so well). The reception brought delicious and artfully plated food and emotional and super funny speeches from friends and family. There was even an ode to “The Bachelor” with both Lauren + Andrew being handed out a final rose. As a fellow trashy TV lover I quite appreciated it :)

Lauren & Andrew - what a pleasure it has been getting to know the both of you and the story of your journey together. I can’t wait to see what your future has in store - may it be all the best things only.

 Firstly, it’s going to be Saturday October 20, 2018 and I only have spots for 4 LADIES!!  That means you can’t delay on getting in touch as they are going to go fast.  It’s the perfect time to have your session done and order any albums, prints, etc for your loved ones as a spicy and unexpected Christmas gift. And if you are doing it for yourself well, it’s just a perfect time as well. You are going to DIE when you see the space we are shooting in. Think super urban loft in the heart of downtown Victoria, decorated with the most stylish accents. Oh and BRICK WALLS.  It’s a stunning place and I may not ever leave after.
