A Grand Adventure
A grand adventure is about to begin.
– Winnie the Pooh
Still busy taking Santa photos at the mall and touching up an occasional photo session! I'll post the gallery for this one tonight. It's a pretty adorable one. I might have to make a new section of my website for maternity shoots. I just love them!

The Sky Broke Like An Egg
The sky broke like an egg into full sunset and the water caught fire.
~ Pamela Hansford Johnson
Sometimes, I go through my weddings and am reminded of the silent moments no one even noticed. Here two best friends are taking in the sunset on a boat, just past 8pm.

Grad Shoots and Winter Wonderland
I'm particularly pleased with the photo above. I love grad shoots, and I especially love good color theory. This photo combines both.
This whole hasn't been all roses, though. My spam filter was filtering out inquiries from my page! If you're one of those inquiries, I apologize. I think I got back to ...

Family Photos & The Snow
You might have noticed that I'm updating a little less frequently. It's not due to lack of shoots - I've simply been crazy busy!
But how about that photo above, hey? I had a pretty fun shoot on Sunday (Two, actually, but I have to keep the second one secret. It's an announcement and I've already said too much!), with an awesome ...

One of my favorite days. A beautiful wedding in victoria with a lighthouse in the background. My heart grew that day. It meant so much to me to be part of that.

“He who contemplates the depths of Paris is seized with vertigo.
Nothing is more fantastic. Nothing is more tragic.
Nothing is more sublime.”
― Victor Hugo
Our thoughts and prayers go out out to those affected in these tragic, senseless killings. We're left speechless. For now, we must pray.#prayforparis

Slot Canyons and Grand Canyons
Many of you remember a stunning wedding I was part of back in April.
Well, the first day there, I rented a car and drove out. There's a ton of destinations in Vegas. We have the Valley of Fire, Spring Mountains, Lamoille Canyon, Cathedral Gorge, and of course - the biggest of them all, the Grand Canyon (And nearby slot canyons.) ...

Trying not to look long at her,
As if she were the sun, yet
He saw her like the sun,
Even without looking."

The 7 Rules of Social Media for Photographers
That's my most popular instagram post. My second most popular is a ring shot. Because of that, I know that time spent taking ring shots isn't time wasted. It's an important part of every wedding. Family shoots can be made fun. There's ground that needs to be broken.
So then we get into social media, don't we? Although I'm not an ...

I Loved Her, Not For The Way
I loved her, not
for the way she danced with
my angels, but for the way
the sound of her name could
silence my demons.
Reminded of this splendid winter engagement shoot. My logo was just in its infant stages. In a way, it still is. In the next version, I'm going to be separating enga ...

Weddings, Word Porn, and Engagements
I never knew
holding someone's hand
could feel so inviting.
and so new at the same time.
Holding your hand,
I celebrate it,
I mark it on the calendars.
Word porn is going to be my new thing. Enjoy it. It's not going anywhere. Until I start shooting w ...

Love never fails. – 1 Corinthians 13:8
Wedding season is almost up in Vernon. I can't believe it. All I want to do is shoot more weddings.
There's engagement and maternity shoots, though. I'm re-doing many parts of the website as well. Getting back into the habit of gym every day, church every sunday, one cup of coffee in the morning instead of four.
If you'd like ...

Family Photos in Vernon & Coldstream
And now it's time for family photos!
In all seriousness, this is why I love photography. There's a lot to it. Here, I'm messing around with color theory. There's composite colors, and complementary colors. I've got to do something while my year is winding down!
I'm starting to ...

Silver Sage Wedding in Coldstream, BC
Silver Sage Stables in Coldstream, BC is one of my favorite places to shoot. If you're looking for a wedding venue, I strongly recommend you to check them out. Then hire me. Because I'd love to photograph your wedding. It's got that vintage old-timey feeling to it. The owners are incredibly gracious and accommodating. The best part ...

Vernon Paper Bouquet Wedding
This wedding to me is bittersweet - my last wedding of the year. It came and went so quickly. Most of them did, it's been an insane year. I've appeared in magazines, photographed 30+ weddings, many more families, and even managed some maternity shoots. As of this week, I'm teaching again.

A Few Magazines, a Maternity Shoot
Usually in October, I kick up my feet. I buy some overpriced whisky, start a book or two, and let the month take me. It's normally a relaxed month.
Not this month, though. Even today - I had meant to finish and post the paper bouquet wedding. But another wedding snuck in. And gearing up fo ...

But let's go through the formalities first. You can view the entire album here. This album below is right click enabled, but the album I just linked need ...
