Mike + Jenn // Victoria Wedding Photography

I love how there always seems to be 3 degrees of separation in Victoria. Turns out this stunning bride, Jenn, is friends with my last equally stunning bride Lea (in the blog post just before this one) as they grew up in a small town in BC together.  ALSO, I had taken engagement photos for Jenn's cousin Ali a few years ago. I absolutely LOVE seeing past clients at weddings! 

Jenn & Mike got married at the Delta Ocean Point in July. It's hard to beat the backdrop of our beautiful city....such a great venue!  Jenn and her ladies enjoyed each others company while getting ready in the morning surrounded by many sweet little ladies who were so excited about the big day (there were 4 flower girls - sooo cute!).  It's so apparent that Jenn is very close with her family and as such was surrounded by so so much love on her big day.  

When Mike saw Jenn walking towards him you could tell by the look on his face how much he loves this girl.  After the ceremony, the wedding party immediately went into the restaurant and did shots (so fun) to celebrate.  We also had a party limo to drive us to the Parliament buildings and Beacon Hill Park for some wedding party and bride and groom photos. Such a fun bunch!   The good times continued through the reception and there were some hilarious moments during the games they played.  Mike guessed Jenn's hands blindfolded no problem but she couldn't tell which butt was his....lots of laughs.  There were so many more memorable moments of the day but I'll let you take a look through some of the photos instead. 

Jenn & Mike - I wish you nothing but years of happiness ahead!!

Lea + Jordan // Parksville Wedding Photography

If I could dream up my perfect wedding to photograph this just might be it. Amazing beachfront venue? Check. Super fun and easy-going couple? Double check. Amazing family and friends? Check, check, check.  Oh PLUS we did some bride & groom portraits at the top of a mountain.  I mean, come on. 

Lea and Jordan were married at the gorgeous Beach Club Resort in Parksville, BC this past June. First it was sunny, then it rained (A LOT), then it stopped. Then it rained again just before the ceremony. Lea made the call to wait 10 minutes before walking down the isle and what do you know....SUNSHINE!   Jordan's daughter walked down the isle with their dog (with a flower crown) which was basically the most adorable thing you have ever seen.  But then, when Jordan saw his beautiful bride walking towards him for the first time his reaction was priceless. There were too many great moments to write about so I'll just let you look at the photos. Also, in case you missed their slideshow, you can see it here

Congrats Lea + Jordan. Wishing you two all the happiness for the future.

Lauren + Andrew // Victoria Wedding Photography Slideshow

I'm not going to lie, I haven't slept much in the last two days. Partly because these two got married on Saturday and I have been on a high ever since.  These are the kinds of weddings that fill me up and energize me, making me so appreciative for the work that I get to do.  But enough about me....let's get to these two stellar people.  Their wedding on Saturday was an intimate affair. Everyone in attendance held a special place in their hearts.  And although it was a gorgeous wedding with many talented vendors involved, none of the details mattered to Lauren + Andrew.  All they cared about was each other and vowing to spend the rest of their lives together. 

I have so much more to write but I'll save it for the blog post. For now I'll just say THANK YOU for having me there and for being so god damn awesome.  Cheers to an awesome life together. 

Lauren + Andrew // Victoria Engagement Photography

Well hot damn these two cuties are getting married in like 10 days and I just realized I that I hadn't blogged their engagement session!  Was that a run on sentence?  Regardless, look at these two!   We explored one of their favorite walking locations, the Songhees walkway, on a rare gloomy summer day. Even though we didn't get the epic sunset I was hoping for I got more laughs out of Lauren & Andrew than I ever expected. They have the most natural chemistry and such an awesome vibe between them.  Their wedding is going to be freakishly good. 

I'm just gonna leave these here for you. 

Jenn + Mike // Victoria Wedding Photography Slideshow

Mike & Jenn had the most beautiful wedding at the Delta Ocean Point Hotel on Saturday.  The backdrop was the gorgeous downtown core of Victoria and their closest friends and family were there to witness them tie the knot.  

There were no shortage of laughs all day long and I'm sure the dance floor was bumping long after I left.  

I'll share more about their day when I blog the wedding but for now here is a slideshow preview of some highlights of the day. Congrats you two beautiful people!!
