Nick & Jessica | Pitt Meadows Engagement Session

I was contacted by Jessica a few months back and I love that she was curious about what equipment we had:)  Jessica knows her stuff in regards to photography and videography which I love (and it makes me a bit nervous!).  Nick and Jessica met in high school and have been dating for eight years.  They have super busy schedules so I'm glad we found a beautiful day for their engagement photos!  They will be getting married next June at the South Bonson Community Centre and so that is where they decided to do their engagement photos.  I had never been there before and it's such a neat little community.  Nick, like most guys, wasn't super excited about having his photo taken but he did such a good job.  

You see the fountain below?  It's in one of the roundabouts!  We don't have roundabouts like that where we live:)  Enjoy!  

Jessica and Nick, it was great spending some time with you while exploring a new location.  I hope all of the wedding planning continues to go well!

Kirra Turn Two | Campbell Valley Family Session

This was such a fun session and I love all of the ideas that Karen had. A big thanks to pinterest for helping in that area too! We ended the session with Kirra opening her birthday present as she turns two this week. What a great idea! So much fun to document her love of her new doll, Ariel. It's a good thing we did it at the end because there was no way she was going to let it out her hands once she opened it:)
And seriously, the hot air balloon? One of my favourites!
Happy 2nd birthday, Kirra!

Karen and Cam, it was great to meet you two and your adorable daughter. I hope she has a great time at her birthday party!
Love, Louise

Brittany & Jordan | Northview Wedding

Brittany and Jordan met at UBC several years ago although they may have met earlier had she listened to her uncle. He told Brittany to look out for his coworker's son who was also going to know, amongst 50,000 students:) They ended up being part of the same club and spent some time together, getting to know each other at a retreat, and look where they are today!

Brittany was busy writing not just one thesis but TWO in the year leading up to their wedding. They were both very busy and so Brittany's mom and her cousin Angela did a lot of the planning leaving Brittany to make the decisions. It came together beautifully.

You might want to play `This Thing Called Love' by Queen while you look through these photos. It was pretty much playing the entire day as the videographers were putting together a montage of the day where people were breaking out in song and dance to that song. It has been in my head ever since:)

I started out with the girls at Brittany's parents house...

Gary met up with the guys at Jordan's parents house. After a game of 500 Up with a frisbee (did I mention in their boxers?!), they all got ready outside. Great lighting:)

We then went to Campbell Valley Park for the `First Look', family photos and portraits. I'll just include the photos from when they first saw each other for this part. It was really beautiful and heart warming and I'm not just saying that. Brittany had mentioned, when getting her make up on earlier, that when Jordan saw her all done up in the past, he would tend to say `You look strange' or something to that effect. Well, when he saw her on their wedding day, he was in awe and couldn't stop saying how beautiful she was. Loved it.

The ceremony and reception were at Northview and boy, do we LOVE a good outdoor wedding! Take note of the water bottles, a great way to utilize your engagement photos! The stickers are actually car decals so they are waterproof.

And here are some of their photos from our time at Campbell Valley Park...

And then the beautiful reception at Northview...

Congratulations Brittany and Jordan!! Thank you for inviting us to be part of your day and I hope you had a relaxing honeymoon after such a busy, busy year!
