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

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!

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.

Sana & Logan–Stylish Country Chic Persian Wedding at Private Estate on Burns Lake in South Langley, BC

About a year ago we met Sana and Logan for the first time when they met us in Kelowna to plan their ultra romantic engagement session which you can view here. When we found out about their upcoming Persian wedding planned at Sana’s family home where she grew up overlooking Burns lake in South Langley, BC, our jaws literally dropped.

Persian ceremonies are incredibly symbolic and lavish.  The couple sits in front of a spread of items called a sofreh facing their guests. The table is decadently adorned with many items including flowers, sweets, breads, coins, candles, a mirror, and a Quran.  During the ceremony Sana’s bridesmaids held a lace fabric above the couple with a few of the bridesmaids taking turns grinding cones of sugar above them to symbolize a sweet life together and sewing a corner of the fabric together to symbolize the union of the couple.  After the ceremony family members and guests come up to give the couple gifts of gold in the form of jewelry or money.

Sana and Logan went all out with the little details for their wedding from providing flip-flops, blankets, and parasols for their guests to entertaining them during cocktail hour with golf chipping into the lake to giant life-size versions of checkers and jenga.  We loved the garden party feel of their wedding, especially all those mason jars used for drinks – super stylish and eco friendly!

I think we could probably go on forever about this super stunning wedding, but we’ll tell it with images instead.  Needless to say, Sana looked gorgeous in her fitted lace gown and Logan was ultra stylish in his khaki country chic suit (practical too in this hot summer weather!).  But really, their love for one another was the main attraction. They absolutely glowed the entire day and there was so many heart warming moments, like Sana signing a song dedicated to her late father.  Congrats Sana & Logan – we had such a fun time getting to know you both and wish you an amazing life together!

Dipping their pinky finger in honey and feeding it to each is another one of the beautiful ceremonial traditions of Persian weddings representing eternal happiness and sweetness in marriage.

Another Persian wedding tradition is the knife dance, which involves all of the bridesmaids as they tease the groom with the cake cutting knife, but will only give it to them if he pays enough – haha!  It is traditional that he pays small amounts and gets refused by all the girls until a really good dancer lures him enough – then he pays the big bucks and is presented with the knife to cut the wedding cake.  We can’t even explain how hilarious this was to watch and photograph!

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

August 14th, 2012

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 […]

 

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!

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 […]

 

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.

We have been excited about this engagement shoot for a while.  When Sana told us she wanted to ride a horse bareback in the water as part of the engagement shoot we nearly jumped for joy.  Yes!!!  They made the excellent location choice of Cosens Bay in Kalamalka Lake Provincial Park.  It was our first time there and wow, what an amazing location.  It’s huge, wild, and rugged.  The fields were bursting with yellow wild flowers and as were setting up the picnic scene, a young bear made it’s appearance and kind of circled from a distance.  I think he was smelling the baguette, so we got the shots we needed and then packed it up!   Logan mocked up a picnic similar to the one they had in Paris, France under the Eiffel Tower when he proposed that day.  Aww…How romantic is that?!

After the picnic, the horses came thanks to Mary-Ellen and her assistant who rode them down to our location for the photoshoot.  A huge thank-you!  The horse and lake photos were so fun – the horses were such good sports even though the hoards of mosquitoes drove them a bit nuts at times.  We don’t blame them, hoards of mosquitoes can drive anyone temporarily insane.  As the sun set behind the mountains, Sana and Logan braved the extremely cold waters and took the plunge.  Thanks you guys for being up for anything and for being so crazy in love.  We can’t wait to photograph your wedding this August in South Langley (fun fact of the day: Langley is horse capital of British Columbia)!

When we asked Logan to kiss Sana’s cheek, Indy decided to get in on the love too!  Is that not the most adorable thing ever?!  We love Sana’s burst of laughter right after the double kiss and Indy’s quizzical look.

When Sarah told us she would love to have their engagement shoot inspired by the music video You and Tequila by Kenny Chesney we were totally game.  We immediately loved the intimacy and creative lighting in the music video.  Rising up late, driving around in a cool vintage car, sunset overlooking the city, beach, crashing waves, and of course, tequila – what more would you want in an engagement shoot?!  Sign us up!

Then when we thought it couldn’t get any better, Sarah informed us they were bringing up her Dad’s custom vintage show car from the Lower Mainland for the engagement shoot.  Woot woot!  This car is a head turner and if you happened to be in downtown Kelowna the night of the engagement shoot, you would have seen me in the rumble seat hanging out photographing these two.  I’ve never heard so many enthusiastic people in my life – the car generated comments such as “I’m so jealous!” and constant hooting and hollering.  If this car was a person, it would definitely be a rock star.

Driving up to Knox Mountain, we were instantly greeted by an amazing golden sunset amidst the soft hues of the sage brush landscape.  Even as the sun long disappeared beyond the mountains we were still equally in love with the dreamy tones of dusk and the full moon even made a nice appearance in the background.  Sarah & Sean are such a madly in love, awesome couple.  We had a great time with them and look forward to photographing their wedding in August!

Janie & Hagen–Windswept romance
winery and beach engagement session in Oliver & Summerland, BC

May 26th, 2012

When we were brainstorming ideas for Janie and Hagen’s engagement session, we knew one thing – that we couldn’t come close to the amazingness (of course that’s a word) of their actual engagement proposal which goes a little like this:  On a typical Sunday evening, Janie and Hagen set out to have dinner with family […]

 

When we were brainstorming ideas for Janie and Hagen’s engagement session, we knew one thing – that we couldn’t come close to the amazingness (of course that’s a word) of their actual engagement proposal which goes a little like this:  On a typical Sunday evening, Janie and Hagen set out to have dinner with family in Richmond, BC (which also happens to be home to Vancouver’s International Airport).  Just as Janie thought that Hagen made a wrong turn, she suddenly realized that they were in the long-term airport parking lot!  Not only did Hagen surprise Janie with a romantic getaway to New York, he proposed on the lake in Central Park in a gondola!!!  Our jaws dropped as we read their proposal story and we seriously think it’s one of the most romantic proposals we’ve ever heard.

To showcase their romantic style and pay homage to their love of wine and the Okanagan Valley, we met up at Road 13 Winery in Oliver, BC where Janie and Hagen tasted wine in the ultra modern executive tasting room.  Road 13 Winery is family owned and we had the pleasure of one of the owners, Joseph, pouring the wine.  Thanks Joseph for accommodating us, making us laugh, and being an awesome host!  After the wine tasting we headed outdoors to wander around the newly green vineyards and capture the beautiful expansive valley.  Janie and Hagen brought a super big pink balloon that we thought might carry them away during this windy day.  Road 13 Winery also has a castle building for their wine tastings and we love the way it looks in the background.  So fairy tale romantic!

On our way back we all stopped at a gorgeous beach in Summerland, BC for a picnic.  Although the day was overcast and windy, we LOVE the way these images turned out.  We think the slightly muted tones of the sky totally added to the dreamy beachside look we were going for.  Thanks Janie and Hagen for surviving the slightly cold and windy day.  Did we mention we loved your outfits?  We couldn’t imagine anything better than Janie’s ultra romantic flowy skirt at the beach.

Even the sky was on our side – it didn’t start to pour until we were all done and in our cars headed back to Kelowna.  A perfect day.  Janie and Hagen – you both rocked this shoot and we can’t wait until your wedding in September at Sparkling Hill Resort!!!

We are always striving to be more creative in our engagement photoshoots, so when Sarah suggested to have part of the session in the hotel room they were staying at we jumped at the idea.  We love the classic look of white sheets and immediately knew with her bombshell blonde looks, she would exude a bit of Brigitte Bardot sexiness into the images.  Along with Sarah & Bryce, came Belle, their adorable little dog which they brought with them all the way from Edmonton.  Belle brought some major cuteness and laughter into the session.  After leaving the hotel we ventured to downtown Kelowna to use some urban spaces and then headed to the beach where they braved the cold and actually ventured into the water.  This session occurred in mid-April on a cold day with little sun, so you can imagine how brave they were!  Sarah & Bryce are super playful together and we had them rolling in the sand and splashing water at each other.  Despite the cold, we pulled out some amazing images reminiscent of long summer days thanks to their daring and adventurous spirits.  Sarah & Bryce – we look forward to photographing your destination wedding in June at The Delta Grand Okanagan Resort in Kelowna!

Amanda & Josh are not only crazy in love, but also each other’s best friend. They were so passionate about having the ultimate engagement portraits that they worked out hard for three months prior and provided us a ton of inspiration for the vision that they wanted us to create.  What followed was a super sexy engagement session that showcased their love, amid the Okanagan’s desert-like background.   I don’t know about you, but when I look at these images they make me think of the desert landscapes of Vegas and Lana Del Rey’s music – they exude a bit of badass glamour.  Afterwards, we headed down to the water to capture some uber sexy shots as it was beginning to get dark.  Even though they were shivering and cold, we pulled out some amazing images in the beautiful dusk lighting.  We can not tell you how much we loved this engagement session!  The styling, storyline, weather, locations…and of course our gorgeous couple came together to create an unforgettable collection of images.  Amanda & Josh, we are looking forward to photographing your wedding on June 16th, 2012 in Kelowna!
