It was a beautiful Spring evening and we got to spend it wandering the streets of New York City with these two. We really couldn’t have asked for a better time. The architecture and colors, the lighting as the sun sank lower in the sky, and the love shared between Randy and Sumeuy was all so inspiring and made for one of my favorite photo shoots in my five years as a wedding photographer…

Last Fall I had the pleasure of second shooting for Jamie Delaine at a gorgeous wedding in Vancouver (just look at the girls’ gowns!).  The day was long (12+ hours!) and full but between working alongside Jamie, and such a joyful bride and groom, I was grateful for the opportunity.

Below are a handful of the images I captured, and here you can see Jamie’s full post from the day.

Many thanks to Jamie, and a warm congrats to the newlyweds!

During this shoot, Tanya asked me what my favorite part of my job is. I don’t think I hesitated a moment before saying “this is!” Engagement sessions will always remain close to my heart, so I was all too happy to cap off 2015 with one more last week. I met up with Paul and Tanya – a long time friend of friends – to document this exciting season of theirs. We wandered about Olympic Village, in their hometown of Vancouver, the air crisp and cold and the winter sun shining.

Much appreciation to these two and a warm congratulations! Paul, you’re marrying a real beauty.
