Katie & Adam

There are so many things we loved about this wedding!  First I (Em) arrived at Katie’s parents house and saw that she was going to get ready in her childhood room, just as it has been since she was young, and I was so excited. I love that all of her special things were around her, her tea cup collection, paddington bear, her dolls and stuffies. It was so sweet to be there  in her old room with her mom and her closest friends to prepare for her wedding day. This is our second bride this year with a Lillen dress from Bisou Bridal in Vancouver and it was gorgeous! When she was ready, giant gorgeous bouquet in hand, she stepped out her back door to meet Adam who was waiting for her. The next amazing thing was our first shoot location courtesy of Chesholm farm – thank you so so much to the Chesholms for sharing your beautiful property with us. It was so special for Katie and Adam to have this beautiful place just for them to capture the images in the meadow and barn. The next great surprise was in their ceremony location at the beautiful hidden Lillian Hoffar Park in Sidney – a gorgeous park that we never would have known was there. And then, as if it couldn’t get any better Adam and Katie boarded her family’s old rowboat and he rowed her around the point to their reception at Capital City Yacht Club!! It was so cute to watch them be sent off and as they rowed, a piper led all their friends and family to the reception to meet them for a sangria and lemonade cocktail hour before dinner. Our last favourite part of this wedding was the close bond between Adam and his dad, you could tell they are best friends and the little moment we witnessed between them at the reception was so sweet. The evening was a perfect summer day to promise the rest of your days to each other. We are so so happy for you Katie and Adam and wish you all the best!

you both captured the feeling of this day so beautifully. All the little details, the special moments. That 1st shot of the 2 of them in the wide open field is GORGEOUS! So well done.

Oh Emmy these are just amazing photographs! I love all of the little details that they included and how you captured them so well in your images. Her room? How sweet is that… the rowboat, rubber boots, totally gorgeous flowers. What a dream.

Julie & Brent

Julie and Brent didn’t let different continents and an ocean keep them apart – this Canadian-Aussie couple was meant to be.  a few weeks ago they were married in the same church that joined Julie’s parents and Grandparents.  I don’t think we have shot in a venue that could be more meaningful to the whole family.  It was so lovely to have the opportunity to shoot in such a beautiful old building. Aaron shot my favourite pre-wedding shot of a groom to date when Brent had a few moments to himself in the back hall of the church before the ceremony.  I love the images that no one knew were baing taken. It was a warm day and the old church provided us with some solace from the sun.  It was also nice for us to return to the site of our own wedding for the reception which was held at the Royal Victoria Yacht Club.  A family friend loaned us the use of their sail boat for some shots down on the docks of the club and we had such a great time with Brent & Julie and their bridal party.  Thanks so much to Blush Bridal Boutique for making Julie so gorgeous and to Tie The Knot Events for a flawless reception.  All the best to you two as you hop between ocean’s to connect your newly formed family.
