What can I say about Laura and Brett?
Well… to start, the first time I met this adorable duo, I took them UNKNOWINGLY to a nude beach. A hidden nude beach. And naked people just started emerging from the trees surrounded the beach, which utterly confused us. By the third person and some exploration, we realized we were definitely the trespassers. You know… with all our clothes on and whatnot. Needless to say, it made for a hilarious and memorable first meeting!
Their beautiful Summerhill Pyramid Winery wedding had far less nudity than their engagement session, thank goodness! Although, it was SO windy during their mountain top first look and first set of bridal party photos, that many of them could have ended up dress-less! We decided to cut it short and resume later in the day because it was just far too windy!
There were so many fun moments over the course of the day – from the sabering ceremony where Laura’s dad had WAY too much fun, to the pogo stick competition, sweet and tearful speeches, I couldn’t have been happier and more honoured to spend the day with this beautiful couple!

Second Photographer – Carly Barnett @ Barnett Photography
Being a Kelowna Wedding Photographer means sunny weddings by summer and cold, snowy engagement sessions by winter! Often, my favourite locations to photograph couples at are just stops on the side of the road! No two locations are the same and it makes it so that each couple has their own unique engagement images. Tash & Tyler even brought their sweet little (brand new) fur baby, Baxter, along for the fun (Yes, they named him after the dog in the Anchorman movie, which just happens to be one of my favourite movies of all time!). Baxter just wanted to run around and I probably spent the first 10 minutes giving Baxter his own little solo session. I’ve got to say – Tash & Tyler were MUCH better listeners than Baxter!
Enjoy these wintery, cozy images!
Often times, children don’t want to have their photographs taken. But if you make them love you, they will let you take their portrait! During this session, I gave piggybacks, raced, rolled around on the ground, went on a Bear Hunt, let the kids take pictures, and I even wiped some noses. After a small incident involving a dog and an adorable little girl, the session was under way and we were having fun!
I know Laura through the wedding industry – she is an incredible wedding planner and owner of English Rose Weddings. She’s the best to work with at weddings and behind the camera!
Thanks for letting me hang out with your adorable family, Laura!
Lindsay and Mike get married in just over a week. They’re having an intimate backyard wedding at a private home on Kalamalka Lake. It’s going to be beautiful!
We went out for an engagement session earlier this week and nearly got rained out. It had been sunny all day, but thankfully, the rain held off until the very end of the session. It was thundering and lightning like crazy and I even managed to capture a bolt of lightning in one of their images! We finished off the session with some Starbucks (Chai latte, yes please!) and wedding talk!
I CAN. NOT. WAIT. for their wedding! Stay tuned for their wedding preview!
