The Turtle Mountain Engagement Session
The Turtle Mountain Engagement Session
There's no place better to shoot an engagement than the Okanagan, especially when it's sunny and nice out. These two were a little shy, after a few minutes we were all laughing and joking like old friends.         They weren't sure of the area, so we drove all over the place. This is a doc ...

Sophie’s 1st Year Cake Smash
When it comes to photographing Cake Smashes, I supply the cake.     The toughest part is getting the birthday girl to get messy - that's why a special cake is needed. Little kids are very sensitive to sugar. This cake a banana-mango cake, flavoured with all natural sugars.       L ...

The Silver Star Wedding near Vernon, BC
The Silver Star Wedding near Vernon, BC
I've often toyed with how I'm going to have my wedding. One of the ideas that keep coming back to me is to rent a large house or two for a weekend at Silver Star, have the ceremony in the back yard, and just have a weekend celebration with all my friends and family. With Tube Town, the hiking, and all the ski paths, there's a lot t ...

An Engagement at Sovereign Lake
An Engagement at Sovereign Lake
I've been photographing engagements for a while. My technique evolves as my standards grow, which is the way it should be. Always be pushing yourself. When I shoot, there should always been a plan in place. I like to have locations, light, props, and outfits all picked out. I've learned a long time ago that a planned shoot will ...

An Engagement at Knox Mountain
An Engagement at Knox Mountain
This engagement session was actually at Paul's Tomb, not Knox Mountain. Paul's tomb is a walking path right around the corner. You take a right out of the parking lot at knox, then another, and drive for five minutes. There's a weirdly small parking lots (about 3 or 4 cars) and then you're there. The park is popular. I've been the ...

The Family Shoot at Soverign Lake
The Family Shoot at Soverign Lake
Sovereign Lake has always been one of my favourite places to shoot, ever since I first discovered it. Plenty of skiers, perfect snow, and friendly staff make every winter session I shoot here perfect. Being partially up the mountain, close to silver star, means it's a little cooler. When it's rainy down here, it's snowy up there. ...

An Engagement at Bridal Falls
An Engagement at Bridal Falls
Bridal Falls has always been one of my favourite places to hike. It's situated right in a lush valley, a little past Enderby. It's one of the many hidden gems in the Okanagan, another stunning place to take photos.     There's some piles of wood I've been wanting to take advantage of forever. Now that I know ...

My Brother Got Married
My Brother Got Married
Thanks to everyone who saw my sampler - it was a little late coming. Mostly because this year has been every kind of insane. I've shot more weddings this year than ever. I'm kind bummed out, to be honest. I'm gettings really itchy to shoot, even though it's icy cold outside. I'm sure the upcoming photography lessons will keep me ju ...

An Engagement overlooking Kalamalka Lake
Although I just finished photographing my last wedding, it doesn't mean I'm taking some time off. Shoots need to be booked. Ideas need to be drawn up for headliner images. Engagement sessions must take place. New techniques must be explored.     As a photographer, there is never time to sit back and relax. Th ...

From Sanctuary Gardens to Gellatly Highlights
Sanctuary Gardens is one of my favourite places to shoot in Kelowna. There's all this tall brush, in this picturesque scene atop a mountain in West Kelowna. Our day starts with a few ring shots.       Just outside the venue where we set up, I saw some mushrooms. Always take advantage of your en ...

A Secret Elopement at Tantalus Vinyard in Kelowna
  It's no secret I love elopements. Something about the secrecy, the story. These two came from way down south, just to experience our beautiful vineyards.       This particular vineyard is Tantalus Vineyard. Although they used to host weddings, it's now a very rare occurrence indeed. However, ...

Weddings at Silver Star are great all year around. In the summer there's skiing, both Alpine and Nordic, a bike park, and many on-mountain activities.

There's a 12 foot high corn maze, beautiful old houses everywhere, authentic machinery, a post office from 1912, and this beautiful old church.     The rings arrived jus ...

The Smokey Sunset Wedding in Coldstream
It's no secret that backyard weddings are among one of my favourites. Especially being near Coldstream, I end up seeing some incredible back yards. This one had the original homestead about 40 feet away from the house in the venue. It was attached to the barn. But we're getting ahead of ourselves.     &nb ...

The Rubber Duck Wedding at Stoney Lake, Ontario
My adventures to this small Ontario town were well documented. It's no secret how much I enjoy travel - to the point where Canada and US travel is included in the Gold packages. At this point, I've shot so many venues that have a new one is worth it alone.     And this is the story. This couple's story. The f ...
