I am thrilled to announce that this wedding was featured on RealWeddings.ca, BC’s biggest wedding magazine! Check out their editorial feature here.

We were so excited to venture outside of our usual Central Okanagan stomping grounds and travel North to the Shuswap area to document Nelle & Alex’s Midsummer Nights’ Dream inspired wedding at Quaaout Lodge and Talking Rock Resort!  Living in Alberta, Nelle spent many Summers up in this area growing up and swimming in the lake, so it holds a special place in her heart (they even welcomed us at the rehearsal dinner at the family’s lakeside cottage, so we got a little taste of those dreamy summer days – thanks guys!).

Nelle & Alex envisioned a woodsy, romantic dream space for their wedding, rich with earthy, mossy forests, so this venue was perfect.  There was so many beautiful parts of this whimsical and glamorous wedding from the morning yoga class for the girls overlooking the lake (Nelle is an avid yogi…and what better way to start your wedding day!) to the decadent décor and florals for their outdoor reception under the stars.  Oh, and Nelle’s show stopping Hayley Paige wedding gown was one for the books!   We could go on all day, but we’ll let the photos do the talking.

This wedding was also featured on RealWeddings in April of this year, complete with lots of other wedding details from Nelle’s interview, which you can view here: www.realweddings.ca/real-weddings/nelle-alexs-midsummer-nights-dream-wedding-at-quaaout-lodge-bc

Thank you, Nelle & Alex, for bringing us to the Shuswap area to photograph your enchanting wedding day and making us feel so welcome!  Also, Nelle is a fellow vegan, so we got spoiled at this wedding with lots of yummy food and vegan cupcakes – mmm!  Congratulations you two!  We hope you had the time of your life in Japan on your honeymoon.  Wishing you a lifetime of love!

“Love looks not with the eyes, but with the mind,
And therefore is winged Cupid painted blind.”
― William Shakespeare, A Midsummer Night’s Dream

Maternity Photoshoot in Kelowna, BC – Polly & Simon

April 3rd, 2014

We were so honoured when Polly and Simon contacted us to photograph their maternity photoshoot this March.  We have had the privilege of photographing this sweet couple for their engagement session in September 2011 which you can view on Style Me Pretty here and also their stunning wedding in May 2012 held at Summerhill Winery […]

 

We were so honoured when Polly and Simon contacted us to photograph their maternity photoshoot this March.  We have had the privilege of photographing this sweet couple for their engagement session in September 2011 which you can view on Style Me Pretty here and also their stunning wedding in May 2012 held at Summerhill Winery which was published in Real Weddings Magazine which you can view here.  It’s so amazing when we get to photograph couples throughout these momentous events and watch their family’s grow!

Polly and Simon drove all the way from Calgary to Kelowna to meet us for some in-studio portraits and also for some outdoor photos set in the beautiful Sanctuary Gardens in West Kelowna (brand new stunning ceremony location for all you upcoming brides).  The very talented Melinda of A New Leaf Floral Design created a breathtaking floral wreath to complete Polly’s ethereal look.  Even despite the chilly March weather, Polly literally looked like a goddess and we are so in love with the images.  Congratulations, Polly & Simon!!!  We look forward to meeting your sweet little girl in the future!

Darren & Nicole – Zombies Attack! Vintage Inspired Zombie Engagement Session at Father Pandosy Mission in Kelowna, BC

Sept 1, 2015 update:

This session was just featured on Good Morning America “Extreme Engagement Pictures.”  Check out the video below:

_________________________________________________________________

Happy Halloween!  In the spirit of all things terrifying, we bring to you a zombie engagement session on this scariest day of the year.  When chatting with Darren and Nicole a while back regarding their upcoming wedding and ideas for their engagement session – Darren looked at us through the choppy Skype connection via our computer and said he wanted zombies.  We laughed, thinking he was joking, but he was dead serious (excuse the pun).  Nicole, being a super awesome fiancé, totally agreed and so we started brainstorming ideas for the shoot.

Unless you have been living under a rock, you will know how crazy popular the zombie movement is.  Zombie engagement shoots are not new and we were adamant not to replicate something that’s been already done.  One thing, Darren made clear was that he didn’t want to have a happy ever after ending, with them killing all the zombies and blissfully walking off into the sunset.  Agreeing no guns would be used (we are from Canada after all!), Darren brought some of his cool weapons he handmade himself (yes, this man can blacksmith as well!).  He seriously might be ready for a zombie apocalypse!

We cannot say enough thanks to all the AMAZING zombies who showed up and frightened us all!  Especially, Trish (zombie with the apron), who after casually asking if she would be interested, took it upon herself to recruit and help with costumes and makeup.  Thank you, Trish!!!  Also, thanks to the historic Father Pandosy Mission for providing the perfect backdrop to a zombie attack.

Thanks Nicole & Darren for your creativity and love of zombies.  We can’t wait to photograph your wedding on August 30th, 2014 at Cedar Creek Winery and Hotel Eldorado!

And so here begins a tale of woe.  Darren & Nicole, set off for a day exploring a nearby abandoned village.  So enamored with each other they did not see what was lurking in the shadows (enter evil laugh)…

Father Pandosy himself with the zombies as they attack Darren & Nicole.  Even though she’s not in many photos because she was busy assisting and second shooting, my lovely wife, Katherine decided to dress up like a zombie too and is below (left of Father Pandosy) joining in on the mob.

Meredith & Ryan – Sand, Sun, & Sagebrush: Dreamy Desert Engagement Session in Osoyoos, BC

July 16th, 2013

When Meredith and Ryan suggested having their engagement session in Canada’s only classified desert, Osoyoos, we were thrilled!  For those of you unfamiliar with the Okanagan, this amazing gem of a valley gets hot summers and even hosts a range of exotic and intimidating animals like rattlesnakes, cougars, and black widows.  Venturing out on a beautiful June day, we headed to the country with Meredith and Ryan to some of their favourite handpicked areas of the South Okanagan.  Normally we’re the ones picking the location, so we were excited about the spontaneity of our little adventure.  We’re in love with the resulting images with all their beautiful dreamy colours softened by the sand and pale tones of the sagebrush.   At the very end of the shoot, a kind parks person came up and let us know that we should be leaving the exact location we were photographing as it is a rattlesnake breeding ground and they come out at dusk (he also mentioned he was looking for a cougar that had been roaming that area)!  Needless to say, we booked it out of there incredibly fast.

Meredith & Ryan, thanks for the crazy fun time!  We can’t wait to photograph your upcoming wedding in September at La Punta Norte in Summerland!!!

Kate & Phil – Glittering Winter Wedding at Sparkling Hill Resort, Vernon, BC

Only three days into 2013 and we photographed our first wedding of the New Year.  Kate and Phil are our lovely and quite hilarious couple who you might remember from their golden autumn engagement shoot which you can view here.  Since Kate and Phil are new to Kelowna, with Kate’s family all from Ontario and Phil’s from Australia, they decided to have an intimate wedding with only their close family and friends at the stunning Sparkling Hill Resort.  For those of you who don’t know, Sparkling Hill Resort is a luxury resort and spa overlooking Okanagan Lake and boasts over 3.5 million Swarovski crystals throughout the hotel.  It’s a very unique gem in the Okanagan and has some amazing modern architecture, so we are always happy when we get to photograph at this beauty.

Kate and Phil started their day off with a First Look in the dreamy Serenity Room within the spa, so they could quickly transition into their reception.  We love this-all white minimalist room and it was the perfect location for Phil to see Kate for the first time in her stunning wedding dress.  Before the ceremony we also braved the outdoors (or more like Kate braved the outdoors) for some snowy winter photos.  At the ceremony, both Kate’s father and step-father walked her down the aisle and as Kate and Phil read their handwritten vows, nearly the whole room was tearing up.  Afterwards everyone savoured champagne and hors d’oeuvres and then made their way downstairs to the private Gernot room for an amazing 5 course meal.

Since Kate and Phil are total jokesters, we only thought it appropriate to include some of our favourite “funny” photos which we don’t often show around here, but knowing their personalities it would be just wrong if we didn’t include them.  Thanks, Kate & Phil, for including us in your gorgeous winter wedding!  It was a stunner of a day and we loved meeting all your family and friends.  Congratulations!!!

OK, super cute story – Kate made all her own cupcakes for the wedding!  How amazing is that?!  She was actually icing them when we arrived, so how could we refuse an adorable cupcake photo?

Haha – we did not pose this!  This is was them for real after the ceremony.  We love this photo because all couples, especially the grooms, always can’t stop fiddling and looking at their new wedding ring.

Nikita & Byron – A Magical and Snowy New Year’s Eve Wedding in Enderby & Salmon Arm, BC

January 14th, 2013

This was a first for us – we had never photographed a New Year’s Eve wedding.  So you can imagine our excitement when Nikita and Byron booked us a year before the big day.  We’ve never had New Year’s Eve plans booked so far in advance!  What a fun way to ring in the New […]

 

This was a first for us – we had never photographed a New Year’s Eve wedding.  So you can imagine our excitement when Nikita and Byron booked us a year before the big day.  We’ve never had New Year’s Eve plans booked so far in advance!  What a fun way to ring in the New Year.

We immediately loved Nikita’s aesthetic and taste for artistic and offbeat photography.  You can check out their ethereal Midsummer’s Night Dream inspired engagement shoot here .   After looking back at those summery engagement photos, it’s such a contrast to the winter wedding about to unfold below.  However, both share a bit of dreaminess quality – there’s something quite magical about having your wedding at the turning of a new year.

We had such a fun time with everyone that day!  Despite the deep snow and cold weather, the wedding party was amazing for the portraits- thank you!!!  You all rock – Gold Star!  Also a huge thank you to the Hanna & Hanna Orchards in Salmon Arm for letting us use your beautiful orchard for some photos.  After a night of dining and dancing, everyone piled around Nikita and Byron on the dance floor and counted down to ring in the New Year.  Then everyone headed outside and created a grand exit for Nikita and Byron which included fireworks and a tunnel of sparklers.  That was indeed the most impressive exit we have ever seen.  Congratulations Nikita & Byron and thank you for including us on your beautiful, joyous day! 

Happy New Year Everyone!!!

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

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.

Kylie & Brandon – A Country Chic Autumn Wedding at Summerhill Winery in Kelowna, BC

October 27th, 2012

We first met Kylie back in early 2011 after she recently opened Moksha Yoga Kelowna and were immediately hooked to her yoga studio and her exuberant and passionate love of life.  We were so honoured to produce some beautiful images for their studio and when Kylie got engaged we were ecstatic when she asked us to be […]

 

We first met Kylie back in early 2011 after she recently opened Moksha Yoga Kelowna and were immediately hooked to her yoga studio and her exuberant and passionate love of life.  We were so honoured to produce some beautiful images for their studio and when Kylie got engaged we were ecstatic when she asked us to be her wedding photographers – yay!  This summer we got to hang out with Kylie and Brandon and produce some beautiful images of them, along with their super cute dog, Marley (aka Doddle) which you can view here.

As their wedding day approached, we got very excited – not just because this wedding was going to be an off-the-wall celebration, but because Kylie heavily reinforced that we were there also as guests and expected us to have just as much fun!  Well…OK, twist our arm.  This wedding was a full day event – starting in the morning with getting ready at Mirror Mirror Salon and Spa and ending in the morning at the wedding after-party held at Chop.  Their October wedding turned out to be a glorious sunny Autumn day, with the perfect temperature – not too hot and not too cold.  I swear, since that weekend it’s been rather dismal and incredibly rainy and cold here in Kelowna, so it’s amazing to think this was only a few weeks ago.

While the girls got ready at Mirror Mirror, the guys headed to Plan B in downtown Kelowna to get straight razor shaves.  After all that pampering, the guys and girls got ready at separate places in West Kelowna before heading to the ceremony held in front of the vineyard overlooking Okanagan Lake at Summerhill Winery.  We love how down to earth Kylie is – in true yogi fashion, she went down the aisle barefoot.  So beautiful.  After the ceremony, Kylie and Brandon, along with their fathers sabered champagne in true Napoleon style kicking off an evening of celebration.

I feel like we could go on forever (and we do gush a bit more later down, but we’ll let the photos tell the rest of the story).  Thank you so much Kylie and Brandon for letting us be part of your spectacular celebration.  We are so truly honoured (and had so much fun)!  We hope your Maui honeymoon was phenomenal!  Namaste.

Ours jaws dropped when we walked into their reception – Vintage Origami created such a stunning array of rustic, earthy, vintage, and autumn inspired décor. Kylie’s phenomenal bouquet (also bridesmaids bouquets and boutonnières) were created by Flower Scene. Kylie is a true earth steward (a quality we highly admire in others) and made sure that her wedding also reflected her love of the earth. Guests were given mason jars to drink out of the entire night, along with compostable paper vintage striped straws. How cute it that? Guests were given tree seedlings as a thank-you token (which conveniently fit into the mason jars for easy traveling). Also, we gushed about the cupcakes made by Cupcasions which cascaded over the table in all sorts of delicious and beautiful ways. They even had vegan cupcakes which rocked our world since we both follow a vegan diet – finally we can have wedding cake!

Below:  At the end of their slideshow, Kylie surprised Brandon with a 10 day honeymoon in Maui!  She let him believe that they were going to stick around Kelowna after the wedding because she had business to attend to.  Little did he know she was planning an awesome honeymoon.  Hehe…so sneaky.

This wedding was so fun and we have never seen Summerhill so packed – everyone was there to have an awesome time. DJ Haymaker had the dance floor packed, the photobooth operated by Okanagan Photo Star had nonstop lineups, and with their open bar, including their signature cocktail drinks creatively named after the couples last names – this party was hoppin’ (OK, we feel super geeky saying that). Oh, but the fun didn’t end their – guests hopped aboard a shuttle and headed off to the afterparty at Chop which continued with tapas and more crazy fun dancing well into the wee morning.

Late night yoga moves on the dance floor were to be expected – love it!
