Cindy & Frankie’s Whytecliff Park engagement session was a beauty! These two are getting married at Stanley Park Teahouse this August and I am thrilled to be a part of it! Below is a small preview of images.
Last August, the Canada Photo Convention awarded me recognition on their list of Top 30 Canadian wedding photographers under the age of 30! They recently got in touch with me and did a little interview! It is a tiny look into my thoughts on being recognized, and some advice to anyone who is looking to start out!

I am always blown away when the Fearless Photographers Awards come out every two months – photographers from all over the world submit their images to this and I am always in awe of the calibre, creativity and heart behind each winning photo – it’s mind blowing! To finally say I am a part of this… No words. I WON A FEARLESS AWARD! Thank you to Kelsey + Mark and their Celebration Pavilion wedding for having me document their day and allowing me to be present to capture this emotional moment. This same image was also featured on Moment Junkie late last year! Check out the link to see all the winners from this collection!

At the end of last year I couldn’t have even imagined the magnitude of positivity that I would experience in 2014. From the Canada Photo Convention’s Top 30 Under 30 nod to multiple placements in the PWPC Contest – the recognition continues to be humbling. Each wedding season seems to bring new surprises and memories that I will hold onto for a lifetime – this year brought me 20 couples, with 20 beautiful stories I was able to capture and be a part of. The opportunity to be a wedding photographer in Vancouver is something I can’t really put into words – thank you to all the beautiful people that have trusted me to document the important times in their lives. A special thanks goes out to my friends, and fellow wedding photographers who have assisted me this year by lending their abundance of talents to many of the weddings in 2014 and letting me join them on their own clients weddings: Sachin Khona, Taryn Baxter, Christine Williams, Michael Wachniak, Edward Lai, Katie Mills, Geoff Heith and Kendra Coupland. The universe has been truly good to me….To 2015 and beyond ~
The results from the PWPC (Professional Wedding Photographers of Canada) Fall 2014 Contest were a success! I was awarded 2nd and 13th place in the ‘EMOTION’ category! It’s the moments like this that make capturing weddings so rewarding. Check out all the contest winners here! http://www.prowedphoto.ca/index.php?p=fall_2014 I also placed in the Spring Contest earlier this year! See those results here.
