elopement

Haida Gwaii Wedding

Mallory (fastest walker ever) and Sean (uber chill musician) invited me to capture their elopement on magic Haida Gwaii this past August. The beauty of this type of elopement is we have time. Time to get to know each other over a period of two days. Having a few meals together, sharing a glass of wine, hiking and scouting a few locations, allows all kinds of magic to happen.

The day of their wedding was super chill, each getting ready on their own, followed by their first look, shortly after we headed off to a few locations then followed by a very intimate wedding officiated by the famous poet and personable Susan Musgrave, followed by delicious wine and Mallory’s artistic charcuterie and finally champagne on the beach with Haida Gwaii’s early evening mystic light. Location Highwater House, Masset, Haida Gwaii.

Intimate Vancouver Wedding

with Janice and Simon who’s sense of humor and ease made for a very relaxed and heartfelt wedding! Only their immediate family and two best friends shared their sweet outdoor wedding in the melting snow. The blanket of snow and warm sunlight reminded me of Spring out East. I was in heaven with two loving people who made everyone around them glow:)!

Erin and Dave's Elopement, Empress Hotel and Cattle Point, Victoria

Erin and Dave came all the way from Texas to elope in Victoria. We connected only a week before their wedding day but I knew right away that their laid-back and grateful attitude would make for a lovely day.  Peter Scales (one of my favorites) officiated the wedding. He brought along a friend as a witness and I was the second witness. We even used the hood of my car to sign the documents. Thank you Peter for referring my name to this loving couple!
