Surrounded by warm and loving friends and family, on a hot and sunny Sunday, Caleb & Marabeth said their wedding vows. Fraser River Lodge, one of the most beautiful wedding venues in the Fraser Valley, provided the most stunning backdrop anyone could ask for. The bride looked like a princess in her exquisite silk gown, a little reminiscent of another princess who wore silk in the 1980s. Caleb, who could not disguise his happiness if he wanted to, looked quite sharp himself, and when given the opportunity kissed his lovely lady as much as he could. Their first kiss was a spectacular way to seal the deal… see below! After enjoying the venue for a while we stuck away with the bride and groom to a secluded, secret spot filled with dreamy light. As you can see, they were a joy to photograph! The shade also offered some much appreciated relief from the heat. Back at the venue, after the delicious meal was enjoyed, the couple relaxed as heartfelt speeches and toasts were given. Then, dancing and laughter completed the night and Caleb whisked away his beautiful bride. There were so many beautiful moments in this day and it was an honour to be a small part of it. Congratulations to the sweet couple! Wishing you years and years of happiness together.
Well, this is a first! I’ve never done a Year in Review post and although I know things like this usually happen early in January, I thought it was time I tried one for myself! Better late than never, right? I was originally going through photos in order to start a new business Instagram account. I’ve been feeling like I need a new open platform to give clients a sneak peek into some of my work and Instagram seemed like the perfect place to start! I took a little time (okay, way too much time) going through each and every family, newborn, toddler, maternity, engagement and wedding session I did during the last year and chose one photo from each. JUST one. That was the really hard part! I get to know these clients so well during our time together that we leave as friends! How am I supposed to pick one picture out of all that fun? Still, I managed to do it, and here is the beautiful result! A little slice of the beautiful memories we made together this past year. Here’s to another great year, everyone! Enjoy!
There’s nothing more beautiful than a wedding, and when the bride and groom are as lovely inside as they are on the outside, you know that it’ll be the event of a lifetime! Erica and Brad started as high school sweethearts, both were raised as farm kids involved with 4H, and love bloomed for this amazing couple. Brad is a motivated businessman as well as a hard-working student. I’d been given the honor of photographing four of Erica’s cousin’s weddings too! I adore the whole family and I knew it would be a day to remember.
We started the day at Erica’s family home, and the atmosphere was so calm and peaceful! Erica and the bridesmaids were so relaxed. The ceremony took place at their home church, Gateway Community, and the decorations were so elegant, but still had a rustic farm feel. It matched their personality so well! They chose three beautiful locations for their photos: McDonald Park, which has been such a popular spot lately, a little road near a family farm, and then at the farm itself. The day was stunning and so was the bride! She was absolutely glowing. You could tell how happy both Erica and Brad were to be together, and now this adorable couple will start their life together in Chilliwack.
