SUNRISE IN IXTAPA WITH TARYN

Ixtapa is simply beautiful. I’m so fortunate to have been able to travel a lot, and this is one of my most favourite tropical places to visit. Its always gorgeous warm, sunny weather when its cold and rainy here at home!

I am also so blessed my family are all sun babies too and I am to be able to spend time with them there. My niece was there for one night and one morning before we left, so she got up early for a little photo shoot with me!
Walking down to the end of the beach was so incredible! It was actually warmer in the water than the air was that early in the morning. And the Pelicans! Amazing! They really filled the sky and would hover slightly and dive bomb straight down into the water. See if you can find a few in the photos doing it! So fascinating compared to the PNW sea birds!

The Pelicans weren’t the only ones fishing!  The Mexicans swim as they fish and hauled out tuna and other ones I didn’t recognize! Keep a close eye on a few photos and you will see a few fins, maybe a few heads in the water behind Taryn photobombing us!  I could have removed them, but honestly it is kind of funny!

And those waves!  According to the locals, every seventh wave is usually big!  I think Taryn found one!sunshine coast wedding photographer sechelt bride adventure bc explore groom explorebc letsgetmarried married lgbt lesbian beautifulbride,

Manzanita Beach, Oregon Bridal Portraits

The things I love most about photography are travelling, meeting people and taking workshops. I met some amazing people in Oregon at the Lets Go Workshop and now have some incredible mentors that are the best in the wedding industry worldwide!  They openly shared information, skills and we had lots of laughs along the way!

Scott and Shannyn – September 10, 2016

An early fall wedding on Keats Island where these two spent many summers. Their families both have cabins on the island and they know every inch of it! Travel is by golf cart, and they had the most gorgeous spots picked out for their photos. Barnabus is simply one of the most beautiful venues I have ever been to, and the boat rides, golf cart bush wacking, wharves and love. What an adventure this day was! The groom and groomsmen wore kilts and the brides were in the most beautiful aqua color. A special thank you to my second shooter Ryan Knight for all his help shooting this wedding!

Ken and Danielle – August 27, 2016

The most completely romantic wedding! On one of the most beautiful days of the summer! Just the right temperature, with a little wind. The bride sailed in on a racing yacht in Secret Cove to meet her groom and marry on the wharf in front of their friends and family! It was breath taking. I’m so honored to have gotten to know Ken and Danielle and be a part of their special day!

Melinda and Darren

I met with Melinda and Darren earlier this year, and was so excited to photograph their wedding. They shared that they were a blended family and had been busy in the last ten years raising their family. They literally had no pictures done of themselves or their family, so were excited for this special day!

They specifically asked to have their photos down down by Hopkins Landing as there is a bench there in his grandfather’s honor. Darren grew up along this stretch of beach and his family has deep roots there! We all could not believe the color of the water, I’ve never seen it this spectacular tropical color! Darren told me he specially ordered a formula to sprinkle in the water to have it magical for Melinda! He is the sweetest!

Congratulations Darren and Melinda! The day could not have been more perfect!

Piotr and Laura

SNP_3082There was a threat of rain that morning, and July on the west coast can be unpredictable! We had good luck on our side and just as the bride and her bridesmaids were heading out to the ampitheatre in Porpoise Bay Provincial park, the skies literally opened up to puffy white clouds, and turned vivid blue!

The ampitheatre was a perfect setting for a wedding, moody westcoast vibes amongst the evergreens and ferns. It was officiated by the brides foster mom that travelled all the way from Texas!   Did I mention the groom is a tattoo artist? You can find evidence of their amazing style throughout the day. So much love everywhere! It was perfect!

Nicole

I was booked two years ago to do a maternity shoot for Nicole. Sadly, that never happened as she went into labour prematurely and delivered Mackenzie! Fast forward two years and she is expecting another baby this July!

She wasn’t going to do a maternity shoot this time, but I think I talked her into it. It may be her last pregnancy and this needs to be celebrated, and recorded. Personally I can hardly recall what it was like to be pregnant as its been a long time since I had my babies. So, we put together a quick maternity shoot as I was only in the Okanagan for a few short days!

A Stormy Summer Beach Wedding – Shannon and Troy

Summer 2015 was a draught. Hot and dry, with a huge forest fire burning in our inlet! August 8, 2015 was the one and only day we saw rain. It was so welcome, moody and full of drama! The perfect summer rainy day stormy wedding!

Personally it was a challenging wedding for myself, as I shot  the wedding, as well  was a bridesmaid! What a challenge! This could not have been done without the amazing skills of my second shooter – Stacey Krolow Photography.
