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.
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.

A gorgeous Scottish & Jewish wedding at Sutton Place Hotel. Mira met Brendan while working overseas in Scotland, and the connection was literally in an instant. All images were shot by Vancouver wedding photographer, John Bello.
Renan & Sandy travelled from New York to celebrate an intimate wedding at UBC this past weekend. It was a beautiful meeting between Korean & Brazilian culture with Cecil Green Park House as the backdrop. Love is colorful. Love is abundant.
Joannza & Lawrence are two of the coolest people I’ve ever met. They found me on instagram winter of last year and were drawn to my work – fast forward to a few months later to Spring, they flew up from LA where they live and I was able to meet them in person for an engagement shoot. Art, creativity and being their genuine selves are one of the many aspects of these two human beings. I am stoked to be a part of their big day.
