CAMP FIRCOM WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER

One of the things I love about Alex & Ian is the effortless way they connect with each other. They put each other at ease, with even a simple glance. When they told me about their wedding at Camp Fircom, I knew it would be something special. Family and friends traveled from all over to the beautiful Gambier Island, even as far as Mexico where some of Alex’s family was from. The dancing at the end of the night was definitely a highlight for me. Everyone just let loose, opened their hearts and just, danced!

VANCOUVER GAY WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER – MATT & CHAD

Matt & Chad Robert H. Lee Alumni Centre October 21st, 2017 Matt & Chad’s wedding celebration was simply about gratitude. The most touching part of the day, that I will remember for the rest of my life, was moments after cocktail hour had ended and guests were sitting down for dinner. Each one of Matt & Chad’s guests were greeted by a personalized handwritten card at their spots, and to see each persons genuine reaction while reading their letters was so very magical. It was gesture so simple, but for me was such a beautiful and thoughtful gift. My heart was full that day and it still is.

UBC BOTANICAL GARDEN WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER – YEOLO WEDDING

Joannza & Lawrence‘s wedding was not only a day of celebration for the two of them, but it was also an homage to their parents and their stories of immigrating to North America to start anew. This is something I connected with on every level as I would not be living in this beautiful city of Vancouver, without the many sacrifices of my parents growing up. Joannza & Lawrence reside in LA, California and with many guests coming from the south of the border and the East Coast, Vancouver was the middle ground to gather for their big day. The wedding ceremony was held at UBC Botanical Garden followed by a reception at Yue Restaurant in Richmond.

NIAGARA-ON-THE-LAKE GAY WEDDING – DEXTER & ANDREW

I traveled to Ontario in August to photograph a gorgeous gay wedding in Niagara-On-The-Lake, Dexter & Andrew’s celebration at Riverbend Inn! The amount of love that filled the air was indescribable.  Dexter & Andrew, who reside in Hong Kong, brought with them many loved ones across the ocean to join them in their celebration. I am so honoured to have had Dexter & Andrew discover and connect with me. They took a chance on someone across the world from them to document their day and I am forever grateful.
