Teaghan & Alyssa's Intimate Wedding // Victoria Wedding Photography

Teaghan & Alyssa exchanged vows on a cloudy June day down on Dallas Road with only their closest friends and family in attendance. Everyone had come from out of town to be there with them and boy was there a lot of love.  These two beautiful ladies just have the most laid back, sweet personalities and it was truly a pleasure to be a part of their intimate wedding.  Alyssa’s dress had a small…well actually kind of large, malfunction just before the wedding so she borrowed a shawl to wear to cover it and just laughed and shrugged it off commenting how thankful she was that her friend had brought it along otherwise she didn’t know what she would have done.  This is just a testament to her laid back attitude – I absolutely love working with clients like this!! 

Everything was planned online as both brides live in Alberta.  We briefly chatted about the logistics of planning a wedding elsewhere – I was so happy to hear that every single vendor had been a dream to work with and they were beyond thrilled at how everything turned out.   High five Victoria vendors!   Oh and please Universe bring me all of these kinds of weddings – MORE PLEASE. 

Teaghan & Alyssa – you ladies are awesome and the best is yet to come.  Cheers to happiness and a life full of love.

Morgan // DoTERRA Branding Session

I know the term “boss babe” may be overused but screw it – Morgan is a BOSS BABE!  I always admire people that find their passion and just go for it.  To boot,  she’s also a wonderful mother, wife and human being.   Morgan sells DoTERRA products including essential oils (her website can be found here). If you aren’t familiar with this company or essential oils in general I urge you to follow her Instagram account (www.instagram.com/thewellthlife) because she posts some amazing uses for some of their products as well as tidbits about how each essential oil can be used to help with everyday real life problems such as cleaning, sickness, emotional imbalances and much more.  I have to admit that I really knew nothing about oils and their benefits before Morgan.  Since then I’ve been dabbling a little bit and it’s truly amazing how they can improve your life!   I think I may be hooked……Before I start sounding like a billboard ad I’m just going to go ahead and share some photos from the summer when we got together for a little branding session.

Claire & Dave // Victoria Engagement Photography

You know how sometimes you meet people and feel like you have known them forever?  Claire & Dave were this to me.  They were so easy and fun to be around that it was just comfortable.  Since they live in Colorado we planned their engagement session just a few days before their wedding which is definitely not the norm but sometimes you have to work with what you have….and I think it worked out pretty well.  We walked around Beacon Hill Park and down to the ocean  by Dallas Road getting to know each other and chatting about life.    Claire & Dave definitely have chemistry together and it made my job feel really easy.   Plus there may have been some fake head-butting in there at one point – like I said these two are really my kind of people!

I don’t want to give too much more away because I’m going to blog their wedding soon so I’ll just leave you with some favorite pictures from their engagement session. Enjoy!

Taylor & Brayden // Victoria Couples Session

A few times a year I do a giveaway session for couples. I always have people asking why I would work for free.  I do this for a few reasons

1)      Sometimes I’m in a good mood and I want to share the cheer and give something to my awesome clients/followers for free

2)      I love meeting new couples and this has been a great way for me to connect with people I otherwise may never have

3)      Let’s face it – life is expensive.  Photography isn’t always in the budget but that doesn’t mean you don’t deserve great photos and when I have some extra time I can offer that gift to someone

Taylor & Brayden won one of my sessions earlier this year and I was so happy to connect with them.  We decided on Cattle Point as a great sunset location for their session and man, it’s so gorgeous there!   Taylor looked stunning in her dress from Myrtle and Moss Props and even though Brayden swore he wasn’t into getting photos taken I think he ended up having a good time after all….I mean I don’t think I’m too terrible of a person to hang out with!

I hope you enjoy some of my favorites from this sunset couple’s session.

Lindsay & James - Married // Victoria Wedding Photography

When I emailed Lindsay and James their finished gallery of wedding photos I got a Facebook message from Lindsay half an hour later saying “James isn’t home yet so I’m definitely just sitting here by myself looking at them and crying. You did such an amazing job, thank you so so so much”.  Our conversation continued on with me telling her she was almost making me cry from her nice words and her replying that it was only fair considering how much I had made her cry by producing such wonderful photos.  These are the moments that I live for – making my clients cry.  Kidding! 

James and Lindsay’s wedding day was filled with so much joy and genuine emotion.   Lindsay wasn’t nervous – she was EXCITED. When I showed up to hang out with the girls for their getting ready shots she was bouncing off the walls with excitement.  She just couldn’t wait to marry James. And he, her.  From the tear filled ceremony, to the kabuki cab rides to take portraits at Beacon Hill Park to the heartfelt speeches and emotional first dances these two really did have the perfect day. 

Lindsay and James - you two are awesomely suited for each other.  I hope your lives are filled with as much happiness as your wedding day was and that you never lose that spark.  I can’t wait to see what the future holds for you two.

Thank you to all the amazing vendors for your hard work and making this day come together so well.
