Nadya – Whimsical Autumn Garden Maternity Session at Lindon House in Kelowna, BC

November 22nd, 2012

When gorgeous Nadya, who owns Heaven On Earth Spa, came to us with ideas for her maternity session, we were over the top excited.  We love how much vision she had and attention to detail.  She is expecting her second little one, which will be a girl!  Nadya hand-wound balls of yarn in all sorts […]

 

When gorgeous Nadya, who owns Heaven On Earth Spa, came to us with ideas for her maternity session, we were over the top excited.  We love how much vision she had and attention to detail.  She is expecting her second little one, which will be a girl!  Nadya hand-wound balls of yarn in all sorts of beautiful colours (including pink) for the photoshoot and even brought along her adorable hedgehog, Kahlua for a few photos!  We LOVE incorporating animals in photoshoots and we still can’t get over how cute Kahlua is!!!

Lindon House set the stage for this beautiful maternity session with its turn of the century architecture and light vintage interiors.  The autumn day turned out to be a little grey and drizzly with rain, but we love the overcast English garden look of the outdoor photos.  Thank you Nadya for letting us photograph such a beautiful time in your life – we can’t wait to meet your little girl!

Naleesa & Tanner – Serene Autumn Engagement Session at Kaloya Park, Oyama BC

November 17th, 2012

Naleesa and Tanner recently moved to Kelowna, so they let us pick an area for their engagement session.  Their only request was somewhere that showed off some beautiful autumn colour.  Ask any person from Kelowna and they would automatically say “The Mission Greenway,” as it hosts a gorgeous display of colours in the fall.  But […]

 

Naleesa and Tanner recently moved to Kelowna, so they let us pick an area for their engagement session.  Their only request was somewhere that showed off some beautiful autumn colour.  Ask any person from Kelowna and they would automatically say “The Mission Greenway,” as it hosts a gorgeous display of colours in the fall.  But we wanted something new, something we haven’t done before.  So when we realized there are deciduous trees with beautiful fall colour at Kaloya Park we knew we found the perfect location.  Plus, it’s also surrounded by the spectacular emerald coloured Kalamalka lake (cool fact of the day: National Geographic Magazine named Kalamalka lake as one of the top 10 most beautiful lakes in the world). 

The day turned out to be a bit grey, cold, and rainy, but Naleesa and Tanner were such troopers and withstood the elements.  We had the park almost all to ourselves and it was so serene and beautiful being out there during the changing of the seasons.  They also brought along their adorable dogs, who were wearing matching sweaters – aww…so cute!!!  We love how much attention and thought they put into their photoshoot.  They brought along some of their favourite foods: cupcakes, popcorn, and coffee.  Plus, some fun balloons that popped against the autumn backdrop.  Naleesa & Tanner, we had such a great time with y’all and really look forward to your wedding next July at Sparkling Hill Resort!

Kate & Phil – Golden Autumn Engagement Session at McMillan Farms in Kelowna, BC

November 1st, 2012

Looking back on Kate and Phil’s engagement session, we are quite sure that we photographed them on the last stunning day of October.  If you live in this area, then you know that it’s been non-stop rainy and grey for the majority of this month – le sigh.  Kate and Phil are a super fun […]

 

Looking back on Kate and Phil’s engagement session, we are quite sure that we photographed them on the last stunning day of October.  If you live in this area, then you know that it’s been non-stop rainy and grey for the majority of this month – le sigh.  Kate and Phil are a super fun couple – always full of laughter, and always joking.  They actually met long distance – Kate is from Ontario and Phil is from Australia.  While they’ve spent time in both Australia and Canada, they’re heading back to Australia after their wedding (however, Phil loves it up here in the good ol’ North). 

To get some beautiful autumn gold colour and harvest feel, we headed to the fantastic McMillan Farms in Kelowna.  McMillan Farms is abound with a huge assortment of pumpkins and has a corn maze!  How cool is that?  We had a pretty good laugh when they showed up with a marshmallow shooter. While most couples show up with romantic gestures of wine and strawberries, they showed up with a marshmallow shooter – love it!  After their marshmallow fight, we hung out with some cute and friendly horses and had a little picnic in the big open field.  We’re pretty stoked that we gave Phil his first “Mulled Hot Apple Cider” experience.  I guess it’s more popular in Canada?  He was pretty impressed with it, so maybe it will catch on in the land down under.

Kate and Phil – you guys are all sorts of fun and we can’t wait to photograph your winter wedding at Sparkling Hill Resort this coming January!!!

A photographer friend in the Okanagan, Karla Rosalin, rode by on her horse while were shooting and let us pose with her beauty for a few shots – thanks!

When Phil, exclaimed he wanted to put marshmallows in Kate’s hair, we were a little like: “Umm…OK.”  But it turned out pretty cute.

OK, true story: Kate discovered Phil on Facebook through mutual friends and kinda stalked him from across the world.  Go Kate!  The next couple photos are an ode to their beginning.

Phil’s a helicopter pilot, but obviously Kate has a better sense of direction.
