Dana + Dustin:: Wedding

Last weekend I had the honour of photographing Dustin and Dana's wedding. They travelled here with their families and friends

from Alberta, and I believe they all had a fabulous time. The day was calm and beautiful and everything came together just as it

should. Thank you to Heritage Flowers in Penticton, and Michelle and Bre of CinCin Events for doing such a fabulous job of the

flowers and details.

And Dana, Dustin and your gorgeous little man....thank you so much for choosing me. We had crazy weather....wind and swirling

skies, and you brought it! I had a wonderful day. Thank you.

McKenzie :: Just Because

This post is part two of a two day shoot. From the very first frame I shot of McKenzie, I KNEW one day just wouldn't be enough.

The camera loves her and she is so genuinely sweet that I can't help but hope she'll model for me again. This second shoot

was even more fun for me, as we were both more comfortable with each other and we got to get out of town. For those of you

reading this that aren't from Penticton, there isn't really much of anything "urban" to speak of here.....we headed to the "big"

city (hehe) of Kelowna and shot in the same back alley where Brooke did my maternity shoot back in January. It really was a

perfect setting for her. I took McKenzie in to Mac to have her glammed up, and the fantastic artist completely brought my

vision to life. ( If you are reading this....we can't remember your name; send me a mail and I'll link to your site)! I then

frantically ran through the mall like a madwoman and picked up the big purple flower for her hair, which was actually a pin for

a jacket, as well as those fab black lace gloves...I think everything together looked ah-mazing!

So.....thank you thank you thank you McKenzie - for a highschool girl you sure are comfortable, talented and confident. A

thank you also to Brooke for coming; this one was just too good to miss out on...make sure to check out her blog since the

pics should be up soon:)

On a side note - my own fancy new blog should be going live in the next week, so stay tuned!!!!!!


p.s. I think I may have the best job in the world...thank you so much to everyone who stops by to see what I've been up to, and even more importantly; my friends, family and clients who trust me enough to step in front of my lens:)

Okay, this last photo took me a while to put together - I KNEW McKenzie reminded me of an actress from the 40's or 50's and I finally figured out who - Rita Hayworth; don't you think???!!

Scott + Sarah :: Married

The sky was black, the the wind was blowing and the rain was coming down in sheets as powerful as a monsoon. Brooke and I

were driving to the wedding of Sarah and Scott, and we were worried. I pulled the car to the side of the road and let B take over the wheel.

As fate would have it, the skies parted just enough for the sun to lightly shine through for the ceremony and the rest of the day

went smoothly. Yes, it rained hard. Yes, tents blew over and trees snapped. And if you looked out over the lake the lightinng show

was spectacular.

The ceremony and reception were held at the beautiful Summerhill Winery in Kelowna, and the mood was elegant and warm with

a touch of sparkle.

Scott and Sarah...thank you for calling us to photograph your day; you made us feel so welcome and it will be a wedding we won't

soon forget.

Stephanie + Fam

What a wonderful time I had with this family; they were here visiting from England and will hopefully be making a move to Canada

in the near future! We had a two part session so that we could focus on their beautiful baby girl, Miss "E" and a few days later got

the boys out to join us. Everyone cooperated...even the weather held out and I captured some great moments of their time here


Thank you again for calling me to document this for you....I hope to be seeing you again!
