The Armstrong Wedding Sampler
I wasn't quite sure what to call this Armstrong wedding sampler, because I can't quite describe Armstrong. It's near Vernon, and it's actually a very easy place to shoot. Back alleys with overgrown trees in every direction. Beautiful old houses, and a park or great place to shoot about every 100 feet it seems.

The Rainy Day at Kopje Park Sampler
Today's wedding takes place at Kopje Park. It's one of my favourite places to shoot. Everything you need to photograph your formals is there - trees, an old shed, and plenty of the beautiful lakes the Okanagan is known for.
We begin our day at the Comfort Inn, in Kelowna. With detail shots. Quite the set of rings.

The Rainy Day Engagement
First, we had smoke. Then, we had rain.
Now the Okanagan is covered in this low haze. It makes the sunsets look like it's straight out of mid 80's San Francisco. I've never seen such colourful sunsets in my life.
For this engagement session, we made our way up Turtle Mountain, a ...

The Autumn Wedding at O’Keefe Ranch Sampler
I couldn't be happier about how this wedding turned out. One of my favourite venues (I'm looking at you, O'Keefe Ranch!), perfect weather, and a lovely bridal party.
Plus we had more than one contender for a cover image.
We start at the The Castle, on Swan Lake, with a few detail shots. The dress was a ...

The Perfect Wedding at Durali Villa, Vernon
Today's Vernon Wedding was at Durali Villa. Special thanks to Jessi Voss for makeup - you are a legend!
I enjoy Durali it because it's in the middle of every place I'd like to shoot. Vernon is chalk full of amazing mountains, lakes (yes, we have three of them) and some stunning views.
We had a few cont ...

The Waterfall Wedding in Nelson, BC
This wedding takes place in Nelson, BC. It's a beautiful old city in the Kootenay Mountains, in British Columbia. Our bride had found a beautiful waterfall, so we had the ceremony on a nearby beach, then formals at the falls.
Lets back this train up a few hours. We begin, of course, with detail shots. Upo ...

The Smokey Wedding at Durali Villa Sampler
This wedding took place at Durali Villa, in Vernon. This venue is incredible - not only because it's basically a mansion from olden times, but because it is located in the middle of some of the best picture spots in all of the Okanagan.
It was tough to choose a header image. These two were amazing - we made our way out to an old ...

The Kelowna Wedding at Guisachan House
Yesterday's wedding took place at the gorgeous Guisachan House in Kelowna. One of my favourite place to photograph. It's in close proximity to all the best spots - the Kelowna Lavendar Farm, and many small parks and large fields. One of the best places in Kelowna, at any time of day.
We start out with, ...

The Smokey Wedding in Vernon BC
Although the smoke is tragic, it changes the way a wedding looks. There's a phenomenon called temperature inversion. The smoke traps the clouds and the fog just below it, making it even more foggy. All of this adds up to make some of my favourite wedding photos to date.
It helps when you have a couple tha ...

The Waterfall Wedding in Sicamous
Saturday's wedding took place in Sicamous, a hidden gem known as the Owlhead Bed and Breakfast. It was absolutely shocking I hadn't heard of this place. The views were stunning, and there was so much to photograph. Smokey forests, a waterfall, a pond, and hiking trails everywhere. One of which we rappelled down to get the most amaz ...

The Backyard South Kelowna Wedding Sampler
This wedding took place in a backyard in South Kelowna. Tall trees and grass surrounded us, as we danced into a hot late-july evening. Under a nearly full moon.
We begin at the house, in the floral arrangement. Literally.
I was pretty into this arrangement. Lots of touches, even ...

From the Manteo Wedding to the Kelowna Lavender Farm Sampler
This wedding is a wild ride. A lovely Manteo ceremony right by the lake, then a trip to the famous Kelowna lavender farm for some of the best formals taken in Kelowna. This massive sampler is over 50 photo, so sit back. We're going on an adventure.
We begin our journey on a nostalgic note. This locket has ...

The High Five Wedding at Quaaout Lodge
We begin our adventure at Quaaout Lodge, near Chase, BC. It's a lovely little adventure, nestled near Little Shuswap Lake. Of particular interest are the rings - all forged by the groom. He takes crafty to the next level!
And of course, the dress was perfect. Anyone who's ...

The Corn Field Wedding at ShyLynn Ranch Sampler
ShyLynn Ranch is a dream come true for photographers, especially this one. There's tall grassy fields, cabins so the families can spend overnight, and fairy lights everywhere. So it should come as no surprise that we had a few photos to choose from for a header image.
We caught the last of the sunset, lea ...

The Summer Wedding at Lindon House Sampler
Today's wedding took place at Lindon House, in Kelowna. It's a old mansion, built in 1905. It was jaw dropping. It was absolutely difficult for me to pick a cover image. I had to make a tough choice. Here's the runner-ups.
We start out, of course, with detail shots. Rings, the dress. In such ...

The Lush Wedding at Linden Gardens Sampler
Today's wedding took place at Linden Gardens. There's a a lot of advantages to this location. It's green everywhere. There's no shortage of spots for photos, and there's no shortage of locations nearby for photos.
That was a runner up for the cover image. I like the slowness, how intimate it is, but I fel ...

The Scenic Wedding at Predator Ridge Sampler
I've never driven a golf cart around Predator Ridge to catch a sunset before. Robyn, the co-ordinator, contacted me a week before and told me that I could borrow one to scout around for todays event. Of course, we went over every inch of that resort. And it's incredible.
That was my other choice for a hea ...
