Andrew & Charis | Wedding Photos

Sweet, sweet couple. They were so laid back and easy going, even though the weather was a little less than friendly. These two had their very first date at Wendel's in Fort Langley, so it was only fitting that they had their wedding photos there too! Andrew and Charis met just over a year ago but Charis says that it feels like they've known each other their whole lives:) Okay, there's a lot of pictures to get to, so here we go. I met Charis at the hairdresser's house where it was packed full of her family and bridal party:)
{Her niece, Janae, was LOVING the whole process and was so excited about wearing her very own princess dress.}
{Do you see all the women on the stairwell? Once her hair and make up were done, it was off to her mother-in-laws to finish getting ready!}
{Charis getting into her dress was very amusing. It had to go over her head and it seemed like she was a little claustrophobic or maybe just afraid of wrecking her hair, I'm not sure! Regardless, it was funny:)}
{Lots of love for Charis!}

{Then, off to the ceremony!}

{What an adorable bunch of flower girls. They are their nieces and I believe they are all just about one month apart, besides the twins of course! There were a bunch of cheerios scattered throughout the wagon to keep them occupied and happy. The sweet little ring bearer did a great job pulling them down the aisle and fortunately did not gain too much momentum!}
{I love being at the back and catching the father/daughter moment before they walk down the aisle!}
{Two photographers, two perspectives.}

{Awesome moment with the exchange of rings...Charis actually dropped the ring and it bounced down the stairs! That definitely helped the two of them to relax:)}

{We went to Derby Reach to have some family photos done before the rain came and we made it just in time! We also managed to get a full wedding party photo before the kiddos needed to go have their naps:) Check out Charis with her newest niece, just 3 weeks old!}
{You can't even tell that they were freezing! We had a few minutes with just the couple before the family had all arrived so took the opportunity to get some shots there first.}

{Getting a nice honk of congratulations from the tug boat!}
{And then we went a few minutes down the road, to Fort Langley, for the remainder of their photos.}

{Where it all began....Wendel's. Then off to the community hall where the fall leaves were looking gorgeous!}

{At this point, it started raining so we went undercover for a bit...}

{While the rest of the wedding party warmed up at Wendel's, we went down to the dock area to get just a few more shots. They were such good sports in the rain!}

{And then it was off to the reception...}
{Gorgeous cake!}

{Congratulations Andrew and Charis! I hope you had an awesome honeymoon in Hawaii and we wish you all the best in all the years to come. Welcome to the neighbourhood, Charis:)

Baby Amy | Family Photos

Last weekend I had three mini sessions in studio and this was one of them. Sweet little Amy. She is just three months old and has the cutest smile, don't you love it?!

{Amy has incredibly beautiful big blue eyes, as you can see!}

{How could I not include some cute pouty faces? Even when she cried, she was adorable!}
It was nice meeting you all and I hope you have a wonderful first Christmas together as a family of three!

Dayla, Deanna & Daryl | Family Photos

This beautiful family came to get some studio shots of their newest member; two week old Daryl. It was perfect timing using the studio as it was very cold and starting to snow out. Here are some pictures of the cute kids, and I should mention it was right during bedtime, didn't they do a great job?!
{Looks like a smile above, with big sister's kiss, doesn't it?}
{Yay, I got to use my newborn boy hat!!}
{I have some funny outtakes of Deanna, the younger girl, licking her baby brother:)}

Baby Daryl did such a great job. And seriously, a sleeping baby is such a sweet thing! It was great getting to know your family, maybe next time we'll have to get photos done outdoors so your girls can run around:)
