Shannon & Brandon – Ridin’ the Rails
Historic Railway Engagement Session at Myra Canyon Trestles in Kelowna, BC

October 11th, 2012

When Shannon and Brandon mentioned they were interested in having their engagement photos taken up at the Myra Canyon trestles, we were super excited.  For those of you unfamiliar with the trestles, they are a spectacular building feat of the Kettle Valley Railway that started in 1910 and was completed in 1914.  Consisting of two […]

 

When Shannon and Brandon mentioned they were interested in having their engagement photos taken up at the Myra Canyon trestles, we were super excited.  For those of you unfamiliar with the trestles, they are a spectacular building feat of the Kettle Valley Railway that started in 1910 and was completed in 1914.  Consisting of two tunnels and 18 trestles clinging on the sides of a massive canyon some 4100 feet above sea level, they bridged the gap between the West Kootneays and the Okanagan Valley, which allowed all the rich resources of the Kootenays to be carried into the port of Vancouver.  The Myra Canyon Railway is known worldwide to be one of the most spectacular sections of rail due to the difficult conditions of the terrain.  Long gone are the days of this railway (last train rode through in 1972), but now everyone can experience the beauty since they converted it into a provincial park.  Unfortunately in 2003, during a huge forest fire, 12 of the 16 trestles burned down.  However, they have rebuilt the trestles and reopened the park to the public in 2008. 

We headed up with Shannon and Brandon on a stunning Fall day with cruiser bikes and picnic in tow and biked around the first section of the trail.  We had so much fun and kept thinking “Why don’t we do this more often?!?.”  It was like a little mini adventure and felt very Indiana Jones way up there with tunnels, railways, and…bears!  Yes, we saw a cute little bear eating elderberries from a tree below us (see picture).  This is the 2nd engagement session this year where we have seen a bear – oh my, this is the Wild West!  After exploring we set up a picnic on the side of the canyon overlooking the valley to catch the last fragments of light.  Shannon and Brandon, we had so much fun with you both biking around in the clean mountain air!  We’re so excited for your upcoming wedding at Cedar Creek Winery and The Laurel Packing House in June!  Woot woot!

Miya & Kyle– The Great Outdoors
Canadiana inspired engagement photoshoot in Okanagan Centre, BC

September 28th, 2012

We’re getting into Fall over here in the Okanagan and the seasons are starting to turn.  The day of Miya and Kyle’s engagement photoshoot turned from a super sunny day and as soon as we started shooting in the late afternoon it became crazy windy.  We love how they brought along such Canadiana props: a canoe, fishing rods, plaid clothes and blankets, and a warm thermos.  Usually Okanagan lake is pretty calm, but the wind was causing some pretty big waves; however, the two of them didn’t even bat an eye and headed out (close to the shore we assure you!). 

After their adventure we set up an outdoor movie theatre on the shores of the lake.  We’ve been wanting to set up an outdoor vintage movie set for a while now and when they mentioned they were sending out Save the Date cards for their wedding next year, we knew this would be perfect.  We brought along our 16mm National Film Board of Canada movie reels and old-school projector and set up a show.   We didn’t anticipate the wind though and having a white sheet as the screen turned out to act as a sail and was a little hard to keep up.  Thank you Miya and Kyle for your awesome style and for braving the elements with us – it was totally worth it!  We love these images and can’t wait until your August wedding at Linden Gardens in Kaleden!

Vincent & Valaura – Born to be Wild
Sexy Vintage Motorcycle Photoshoot in Kelowna, BC

As many of you know, I also am a department head for a digital photography diploma program here in Kelowna at the Centre for Arts and Technology.  Recently, I was chosen from the three campuses across Canada as the first featured “e-celebrity,” which showcases the knowledge different instructors have in the industry to share with students across all three campuses for educational purposes.   Since my career is primarily focused on an editorial style of wedding photography, I decided to let students experience the anatomy of a couple’s photoshoot starting from the conceptual development through the completion of the shoot.  A team of talented and dedicated staff and students from the Centre for Arts and Technology came along to film the entire process from start to finish, which we will introduce when we post the video – thank you!!!  To keep it as real as possible, I chose a couple I don’t know who were recommended to me.  As soon as I saw a picture of our couple, Vincent and Valaura, Katherine and I had a flood of ideas of what we were inspired to create for their photoshoot.  They naturally have a vintage vibe to them and it was our chance to showcase something we were wanting to do for a long time – a James Dean/Marilyn Monroe inspired retro motorcycle photoshoot.

I won’t get into all the details of the photoshoot in this post – once the video is complete, I will share it so everyone can have a behind the scenes experience of how an couple’s session unfolds.  The day started out sunny and bright and then got progressively grey with warnings of a storm brewing.  This photoshoot was going ahead rain or shine, so we had to just roll with it!  As soon as we started shooting, rain came down with thunder and lightning!  This isn’t the first time we’ve worked out in the rain on photoshoots – we’ve actually produced some award-winning images in the craziest weather.  It wasn’t until the end of the shoot that the sun came out, produced an amazing sunset, and we even got a rainbow.  Woo hoo!

We were very lucky to have access to an amazing 1950 Vincent motorcycle (OK, we think it’s super cool that the bike and our male model have the same name!).  Thank you also to Giselle Gaspar and Brandie Jollimore from Mirror Mirror Day Spa & Salon for creating such amazingly gorgeous hair and makeup, plus Frock clothing for providing awesome vintage accessories!  A HUGE thank you goes out to the beautiful private orchard estate in East Kelowna that graciously granted permission for this photoshoot.  Also a big thank you to a few of the orchard workers who partook in some of the photos.  It was a super fun day – thanks to everyone involved and of course to our phenomenal couple, Vincent and Valaura!

Mallory & Dave – Elegant & Fun Lakeside Terrace Wedding at The Delta Grand Resort in Kelowna, BC

We first met Mallory and Dave back in June for their engagement session which took place on Mallory’s family homestead in Vernon.  Needless to say we were immediately blown away by the beauty of this historical property and how easy going, relaxed, and fun Mallory and Dave are.  You can view their engagement session here.  On their wedding day, we got to go back to this amazing property along with the wedding party and close family to take more photos!!!  YES!!!

But we’re getting ahead of ourselves, let’s start at the beginning of the wedding day when Mallory and Dave got ready at The Delta Grand Resort in downtown Kelowna.  The beautiful ceremony took place on the outdoor lakeside terrace at The Delta Grand.  After the ceremony, they drove off in Mallory’s Great Grandfather’s restored lumber truck.  We loved the addition of the trailing cans and just married sign – so cute.  We drove to the nearby mill to get a few lumber inspired photos and switched vehicles before heading off to the homestead in Vernon.  Getting to the homestead is only via country roads so we climbed the hills in trucks passing cows along the way.  It was really special photographing Mallory, Dave, and their family in such a meaningful location.

Afterwards, we headed back to The Delta Grand where everyone feasted and danced the night away.  It was a super fun evening and great ending to a phenomenal day.  Congratulations Mallory and Dave!!!  We were so honoured to have photographed your wedding.  Hope you two are having an amazing time on your European honeymoon!

We love how all of Mallory’s family came up for group photos at the homestead – we couldn’t imagine a more meaningful place to photograph them.

Family on Mallory’s side initiated Dave into his new life via a Scandinavian tradition by cutting the toes off the groom’s socks right after the first dance.  Mallory and Dave had no idea this was going to happen so Mallory looked a little freaked out when a group of guys dove on Dave, turned him upside down, ripped his shoes off, and proceeded to cut the tips off his socks.  This tradition is to symbolize the change in status from being single to married.  We also read that it alludes to the newly married man now having a wife to mend his socks.  Whatever it means, it was pretty funny and the first we’ve ever experienced at a wedding.

Stephanie & Mathew – Ultra Sweet & Charming Vintage Wedding at Summerhill Winery in Kelowna, BC

September 4th, 2012

When Stephanie first contacted us about photographing their wedding over a year ago we had to let her know we were already booked for another wedding.  It was much to our surprise when she contacted us back saying that she was considering changing her date, but wanted to see if we were available first.  Luckily we were and the rest is history!  We met up last Fall for a fun, creative engagement photoshoot at a movie theatre and an autumn farm complete with a corn maze and hay ride.  Stephanie and Mathew are such easy going, friendly people.  We knew their wedding day would be fantastic.

We love ourselves a vintage themed wedding and Stephanie and Mathew created such a sweet and beautiful wedding day full of vintage cuteness and charm.  Stephanie is super creative and scoured high and low for the best details for her wedding.  We especially loved the vintage blue Ball glass mason jars (which is adorable since her last name is Ball), colourful depression glass teacups and saucers, retro cake topper, and fun candy table.  Everything was beautiful and meaningful, even the glass windows used for the table seating cards were from Stephanie’s parents cabin.

Stephanie is starting her first year as a teacher this September and we loved how she wanted to infuse a school theme into the photos.  She purchased a vintage school desk and we finally got to use the awesome heritage yellow and brick school buildings at the end of the street we live on for the First Look before the wedding.  We totally love the vintage school theme and with all the kiddos young and old alike starting a new year of school it’s the perfect time of year for these photos!

Summerhill Winery provided the perfect vineyard location for their ceremony and we had an awesome time hanging out with their super fun family and friends throughout the night.  Stephanie is so ridiculously adorable, gorgeous, and has a great sense of style – what more could photographers want?  She’s a self proclaimed “cry baby” and was tearing up throughout the day which was so sweet and heartwarming.  Stephanie and Mathew – you guys are quite possibly the sweetest people we’ve ever met!  Thank you so much for including us in your amazing day.  We are so honoured and had a great time hanging out with y’all.  Congratulations!!!

Kylie & Brandon–One Love
Okanagan Beach Engagement Session in Kelowna, BC

Where do we begin?  We met Kylie and Brandon around 1.5 years ago right after Kylie opened Moksha Yoga Kelowna studio in the Mission.  Like so many of you out there, we love hot yoga.  Her studio is beautiful and we were so honoured to create a collection of images for them.  Many of the images are printed large format on metal and can be found lining the hallways, so have a look next time you’re there.  But enough about us…

Kylie and Brandon met at Lululemon – of course!  It’s a long story, but in short they serendipitously crossed paths and have been madly in love ever since.  Yogis in love.  Aww.  We were so excited when Kylie and Brandon asked us to photograph their wedding this coming October at Summerhill Winery.  They have an amazing dog, Marley, which many people might know since she sometimes hangs out at the studio.  Marley is super adorable and we were so excited that she came along for the engagement shoot.

We love the relaxed vibe of this session – keeping it real and doing what they love:  hanging out with their dog, chilling out by the lake, enjoying a glass of wine, and of course, yoga.  We HAD to throw in a couple’s yoga pose into the mix.  After the session, we hung out with them by the lake, drank wine, and talked (in a somewhat philosophical nature) about life.  Love these two.  Kylie and Brandon, we can’t wait to photograph your upcoming wedding!

Ashlea & Trevor – Vintage & Pretty Vineyard Wedding at Summerhill Winery, Kelowna, BC

August 12th, 2012

We met Ashlea and Trevor for the first time back in May when we photographed their engagement session which you can view here.  They are super-fun, sweet, and have great style to boot.  Since Ashlea and Trevor are from Calgary, this was a destination wedding; however, a large amount of their guests at the wedding […]

 

We met Ashlea and Trevor for the first time back in May when we photographed their engagement session which you can view here.  They are super-fun, sweet, and have great style to boot.  Since Ashlea and Trevor are from Calgary, this was a destination wedding; however, a large amount of their guests at the wedding were from even farther away – Newfoundland!  Trevor is from Newfoundland and they incorporated a few traditions into their wedding.   OK, we’re kinda in love with the East Coast of Canada and have been itching to check out “The Rock,” so we super excited when we found this out.

To start the wedding day off, Trevor, his groomsmen, father, and soon-to-be father-in law headed over to Plan B for straight razor shaves rockin’ out to Trevor’s favourite heavy metal music.  Ashlea and Trevor both got ready at the stunning lakeside Mission Shores.  We loved Ashlea’s vintage inspired dress with yards of tulle and birdcage hairpiece – so classic.   They had beautiful hot Okanagan weather for their wedding and as always, Summerhill Winery boasted spectacular lake views.  Paying homage to Trevor’s Newfoundland roots, during the reception guests had to kiss a fish in order for the couple to kiss which was super hilarious.  This was our first time seeing this – ever.  It kept everyone laughing the whole night.

Ashlea & Trevor – we had a great time at your wedding!  Congratulations!!!

Nikita & Byron – Literary Dreams
A Fairytale Romance Engagement Session in Kelowna, BC

Flashback to February when Nikita and Byron started discussing their ideal engagement session with us.  After we mentioned some concepts, they emailed back saying  they actually envisioned something more ethereal and dramatic inspired by A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Edgar Allen Poe, and Tim Burton.  When we read the email I think we actually squealed with joy.  We love super creative shoots and this was our chance to go to town.  We also love how this shoot pays homage to Nikita’s degree majoring in Literature.

We knew one thing , this engagement session needed a story.  So we created one – with images….  Get yourself an icy cold beverage or a warm cup of something if it’s cold where you are in the world and escape from reality for a few minutes.  Enjoy!

A huge, huge thank-you to Yuriko and Eric from Vintage Origami for providing us with amazing props and being so patient in the mosquito filled forest!  Also, thank-you, thank-you, thank-you to Christina from Classic Creations for creating such a phenomenal ethereal hair wreath and bouquet.

Once upon a time…

Kelowna-engagement-session_surreal-dream-forest-and-lake-portraits01_by-Kevin-TrowbridgeKelowna-engagement-session_surreal-dream-forest-and-lake-portraits03_by-Kevin-Trowbridge

Two lovebirds went walking one day on a warm and beautiful day in Summer.  They talked and laughed so much they lost track of where they were and found themselves in an unfamiliar place with a peculiar old building.  Curious they peeked in…

Kelowna-engagement-session_surreal-dream-forest-and-lake-portraits04_by-Kevin-TrowbridgeKelowna-engagement-session_surreal-dream-forest-and-lake-portraits05_by-Kevin-Trowbridge

…and couldn’t resist exploring to see what they could find.

Just when they saw everything there was to see, suddenly they noticed a strange collection of beautiful items in the corner of a room.  Dusty and forgotten, from another time.Kelowna-engagement-session_surreal-dream-forest-and-lake-portraits13_by-Kevin-TrowbridgeKelowna-engagement-session_surreal-dream-forest-and-lake-portraits10_by-Kevin-TrowbridgeKelowna-engagement-session_surreal-dream-forest-and-lake-portraits11_by-Kevin-TrowbridgeKelowna-engagement-session_surreal-dream-forest-and-lake-portraits14_by-Kevin-TrowbridgeKelowna-engagement-session_surreal-dream-forest-and-lake-portraits15_by-Kevin-TrowbridgeKelowna-engagement-session_surreal-dream-forest-and-lake-portraits17_by-Kevin-TrowbridgeKelowna-engagement-session_surreal-dream-forest-and-lake-portraits18_by-Kevin-TrowbridgeKelowna-engagement-session_surreal-dream-forest-and-lake-portraits12_by-Kevin-TrowbridgeKelowna-engagement-session_surreal-dream-forest-and-lake-portraits16_by-Kevin-Trowbridge

So many interesting things they found – books of old, keys belonging to mysterious doors and locks, a broken down chandelier, even a withered flower wreath. 

Kelowna-engagement-session_surreal-dream-forest-and-lake-portraits19_by-Kevin-TrowbridgeKelowna-engagement-session_surreal-dream-forest-and-lake-portraits20_by-Kevin-Trowbridge

Opening a little cabinet they found an old elixir of some sort.  They wondered what it was; surely it was just wine or port.  Doesn’t that just get better with age?  Remembering their parents advice, they knew it wasn’t safe to drink unknown substances.  But being the curious people they were, they couldn’t resist. 

Kelowna-engagement-session_surreal-dream-forest-and-lake-portraits21_by-Kevin-TrowbridgeKelowna-engagement-session_surreal-dream-forest-and-lake-portraits22_by-Kevin-Trowbridge

A little scared and a little excited, they drank the whole glass down.

Kelowna-engagement-session_surreal-dream-forest-and-lake-portraits23_by-Kevin-TrowbridgeKelowna-engagement-session_surreal-dream-forest-and-lake-portraits24_by-Kevin-Trowbridge

And then felt very, very sleepy…

Kelowna-engagement-session_surreal-dream-forest-and-lake-portraits25_by-Kevin-Trowbridge

…and awoke in a very strange and beautiful forest.

Kelowna-engagement-session_surreal-dream-forest-and-lake-portraits30_by-Kevin-TrowbridgeKelowna-engagement-session_surreal-dream-forest-and-lake-portraits32_by-Kevin-TrowbridgeKelowna-engagement-session_surreal-dream-forest-and-lake-portraits31_by-Kevin-TrowbridgeKelowna-engagement-session_surreal-dream-forest-and-lake-portraits33_by-Kevin-TrowbridgeKelowna-engagement-session_surreal-dream-forest-and-lake-portraits34_by-Kevin-Trowbridge

They suddenly realized that all the same objects they found in the old house were among them, but all bright and new.  Even the withered flower wreath had come back to life.  How strange! 

Kelowna-engagement-session_surreal-dream-forest-and-lake-portraits35_by-Kevin-TrowbridgeKelowna-engagement-session_surreal-dream-forest-and-lake-portraits36_by-Kevin-Trowbridge

Everything was beautiful.  The temperature was perfect.  The air smelled like the most delicious roses and there was the most beautiful sound, but they couldn’t tell if it was someone playing a violin or songbirds signing in the morning sky.  True to their nature, they started exploring.

For a while, they got separated as they explored and as Byron sat down to rest he realized their was something in his pocket…and pulled out the most beautiful ring.  He thought about how much he loved Nikita and how he wanted to spend the rest of his life with her, but decided to wait until the perfect moment. 

Kelowna-engagement-session_surreal-dream-forest-and-lake-portraits46_by-Kevin-TrowbridgeKelowna-engagement-session_surreal-dream-forest-and-lake-portraits47_by-Kevin-Trowbridge
Suddenly Nikita came dancing through the forest.

Hearing the distant sound of waves, they followed their ears to find a picturesque pebble beach.

And then the moment was perfect.

Sleepy-eyed they woke up in the old house exactly where they dozed off.  It must have been a dream.

Kelowna-engagement-session_surreal-dream-forest-and-lake-portraits26_by-Kevin-TrowbridgeKelowna-engagement-session_surreal-dream-forest-and-lake-portraits27_by-Kevin-Trowbridge

However, when they looked down they found the exact same ring from the dream and realized it wasn’t a dream after all.

Emily & Riley – Garden Party Wedding at Private Residence & The Harvest Golf Club, Kelowna, BC

July 31st, 2012

We met Emily and Riley back in February up at Silver Star Mountain Resort in Vernon for their engagement session which you can view here.  They are fun, easy-going, adventurous, and totally in love.  They met at medical school where Riley was Emily’s support group leader and also leader of the outdoor club which Emily […]

 

We met Emily and Riley back in February up at Silver Star Mountain Resort in Vernon for their engagement session which you can view here.  They are fun, easy-going, adventurous, and totally in love.  They met at medical school where Riley was Emily’s support group leader and also leader of the outdoor club which Emily attended often; however it wasn’t official until Riley went to a party they were both at dressed up as a Spartan warrior from the movie 300.  Love it!

They had their wedding at Emily’s parents private residence where she grew up.  It’s a stunning property with beautiful gardens, huge pool, and horses.  The most amazing cello music played before and during the ceremony by Emily’s talented musician brother from New York along with a beautiful duet with his girlfriend Annie during the recession.  After the garden ceremony they headed to the back for a poolside cocktail party and champagne toast.  We can say with all certainty that we have never photographed a wedding with so many doctors in attendance!  Not only were tons of their guests doctors, but also their entire wedding party.  Needless to say, we felt very safe! 

Backing the private residence is a neighbour’s lavender field that was in full bloom.  YES!!!  We have been wanting to shoot in lavender fields for a long time, so as you can imagine how super excited we were.  We absolutely love the images of Emily and Riley amidst the dreaminess of the lavender with the tall dark forest behind them.  And then it get’s even better…we went to see the horses!  We didn’t hang out with the horses for too long because in all honesty I think they were totally freaked out about Emily’s wedding gown, but we again love the images created in that short amount of time. 

Emily and Riley had their reception at The Harvest Golf Club in Kelowna and we hung out with them and their wedding party in the orchard until we all headed back for their entrance.  Guests had to get up and share a story about Emily or Riley in order to get them to kiss, so we learned more about how awesome these two are.  Emily & Riley – thank you so much for letting us capture the story of your wedding day.  You both are truly amazing, compassionate, and beautiful people – we wish you a lifetime of happiness and love!

And just when you thought it was over…one of our favourite moments of the night: Riley showing off his mad dance skills – Ladies and Gentleman, may we present you “The Worm.”
