Engagement Photography

with Sara and Bryan and two stunning owls named Danny and Elton. One can hire them from a place in Duncan called Raptors. I presume it’s a way to help finance the recovery and wildlife refuge center. Needless to say it was such a privilege to be close to these birds let alone look closely into their eyes! No sudden brisk movement nor touching their feathers was the rule. I could go on and on about the experience.. Sara and Bryan, you are a joy and I can not wait to photograph your wedding in May at Hatley Castle! (last photo is of me admiring the owl taken by Bryan, thank you!)

Sea Cider Farm and Cider House - Winter Wedding

Adrienne, Jesse and baby Theo invited their families and friends all the way from Seattle and elsewhere to celebrate their winter wedding at Sea Cider House. It was by far the rainiest and darkest night of all of December. I mean downpour. Yet Adrienne kept her hopes up and nothing phased her and sure enough on the ride down to the venue the skies opened up, just like that, just enough for their sweet 15 min forest ceremony. Night fell exactly following their embrace and delicious hot chocolate and cider awaited inside. Adrienne opted to hold Theo down the Isle rather than flowers, catered by the reputable Toque Catering, getting ready at Heartwood and Co. and of course the great staff at Sea Cider.
