Syra and Nelson began their day at the Sheraton Wall Centre Vancouver Hotel and celebrated their wedding at Holy Rosary Church in downtown Vancouver with their closest friends and family…

and it was this strength of family that was so evident throughout the day, from beginning to end. I feel privileged to have been able to take part in Syra and Nelson’s big day. Also, big props to your choices of music at the reception.. SO GOOD! Thank you for having me – days like this make me love my job even more than the day before.

Thank you to Michael Wachniak for shooting with me on this day and creating some beautiful images.

Side Note: It was around this time two years ago, scared and drenched in sweat, that I pressed the shutter on my camera for the first time ever at a wedding, second shooting for Michael. Present day, no longer scared, but just as prone to sweatiness, I look back on the past two years and shake my head in awe at all the good I have experienced, the good people who have let me take part in their celebrations, and all the good that is to come. Beer me!
