Magali & Ryan Tantalus Wedding | kelowna wedding photographer

When Magali, Ryan and I first talked about their wedding day plans, they were clear on one thing: that the wedding day be about love and celebrating with their closest friends and family. They didn't want to incorporate any traditions that didn't feel like them, and by staying true to their vision their day was full of sweet moments, kind words and love shared. 

I always have a soft spot for kids at weddings and Ryan's daughters were such bright, loving little girls.

Everything about their day felt unique to them, simple, elegant and beautiful. Wishing you all the best and thank you for asking us to preserve your memories from the day.

   The girls are 3 and 5 and Magali's wedding dress was the closest thing to a Fairy Princess dress they had ever seen. Neither of them could stop playing with the delicate beading, it made my heart burst watching.

Magali said vows to the girls. Her words were kind, sweet and heartfelt.

And I loved their reaction captured by my second shooter Tiffany. They adore Magali.

Chelsea & Jeff | Kelowna backyard wedding photography

Chelsea and Jeff have that thing; the one where they seem at home when they're together. Their wedding day was planned around one of the most important aspects of their love story: family. Their backyard garden wedding, overlooking Okanagan Lake, was the perfect setting to celebrate their families coming together. In honour of her Kelowna roots, the bride arrived by boat and down the dock as the aisle. Under a beautiful tree, surrounded by all their loved ones, with Jeff's 4 lovely kids standing at their sides, Chelsea and Jeff said I do. And from that moment on neither stopped smiling.

Kelowna wedding photographer- Jill & Mitch say I do.

These two were such a fun couple to photograph. You have to love a girl who's name rhymes after she is married to her beloved. Jillian Petillion-you lit up in front of my camera, in front of your friends and family, and most of all in front of your new husband. Mitch- you were the ultimate gentleman, cool and suave, with eyes for your gorgeous bride. 

It isn't every day you are welcomed in with open arms to capture someone's special day. But these two and their entire clan, trusted me to do what I do and finished off the night with a Dance off! That's the ultimate wedding experience right there.

Kelowna Wedding Photographer- Wild Love Styled Shoot

I'm a fan of all things pretty. And all things sweet. And all things nice. As a wedding photographer in Kelowna I am lucky enough to shoot some gorgeous venues & weddings. But sometimes, sometimes I just want to sit down and drink an old-fashion and talk about my secret wish of getting a sleeve (of tattoos), and use a lot of swear words. You know? Get a little more rugged and tough and just kinda a little bit bad. But that doesn't always happen.  

EXCEPT, when we shot this styled wedding shoot. This past spring, along with the amazingly talented, Lauren of  Perspective Event Designs, and Christina from Classic Creations Floral designs, we came up with a concept based on a couple running off to the woods to get hitched, ditching everyone to taste a little freedom. We were inspired by a more rugged, wild and free kind of love; a west coast, banjo-playing, whiskey drinking, Bonnie and Clyde (without the dead bodies) kind of characters who also happened to be ridiculously in love. 

Not only did they style and help plan, but Lauren also sourced locally or handmade all the decor pieces used, and Christina designed and styled the bouquet and tablescape. 

This shoot would be nothing without the we had amazing, wonderful team of vendors from some of the very best in the industry. Melanie Feeny from Shimmer & Gloss was the makeup artist, Ashley Nitti from Mint Hair Salon was our Hairstylist, Laura Ayotte from Dandelion Willows designed & printed all the stationary and invitations, Tanis Giesbrecht baked and designed the cake and breads, and when we couldn't find a dress that fit the theme of the shoot, my very own momma stepped in and whipped up that boho wedding gown. 

And of course, our fabulous models, who bared hail, wind, stormy conditions, were easy to work with, and laughed with us the whole shoot.  Rod Anderson and Alex Kimiko thank you.
