Trista & Ken
Merritt

I met Trista & Ken through one of my Wedding posts on the good old internet and when we finally got to meet in person I was super excited to be a part of their day because of how laid back they were together, and how much love they had for one another! I also fell in love with their love story! They met one another at the campsite at Lundbom Lake, just outside of Merritt, BC and decided that would be the perfect spot to seal their marriage vows and have their ceremony and party afterwards – so romantic and memorable. It was beautiful being right by the lake, and although it was a little chilly with the wind, the rain held off until just after we finished the last photos! (Yay weather gods!) Trista and Ken have a big happy family together, and as you can see the boys were such characters throughout the day, and were so much fun to follow around, snapping photos of while they waited for the bride to walk down the aisle! The sisters were just as much fun to photograph, the littlest one was such a living doll and the older sisters were graceful and loving. As it always is with a good friend hosting the ceremony, there are always bound to be lots of laughs, personal stories, and touching moments!  I loved how every time Trista looked at Ken she was beaming, she had the most beautiful smile from ear to ear, and Ken was no different, gazing lovingly at his new bride. My favorite part of the day was taking their heavy duty 4×4 truck to a special spot up a mountain, behind the lake, where they had gone many times before, to do the photos of just the two of them. The sprawling fields overlooked Merritt and made for a picture perfect opportunity of the two of them. It was a beautiful day filled with lots of friends, and lots of love, and I was so glad to be a part of such an intimate wedding day! xo

Ceremony Location: Lundbom Lake, Merritt BC

Rob & Stacey
Kamloops

Rob and Stacey are two of the kindest people I’ve met while being a wedding photographer in Kamloops. Stacey has this light about her, one that shines so bright and so sure that you can’t help but love her instantly. She is so incredibly sweet and you can just tell that she’s always been this way; Rob is equally as wonderful, but has a bit more of a silly charm about him. The two of them together is like a warm summer day, cheesy as it sounds, it’s so true. I felt 100% comfortable around them even the first time meeting them and am I know that they will make an incredible husband and wife team! When Rob told me that they wanted to use their horses (their horses brought them together :) in their engagement (see those photos here) and wedding photos I was floored! I grew up around horses because my sister had them, and I’ve loved them ever since I was a little girl (doesn’t every little girl love horses?) but I wasn’t sure how their horses would react bringing the bride to the ceremony and then having the two of them gallop off in to the horizon after the ceremony and then making them pose for photos, but they were amazing, just like they were in the engagement shoot! I loved the whole atmosphere of the day,  your wedding location, and especially the two of you! xo

Ceremony & Reception Venue: Douglas Lake Ranch – Salmon Lake Resort

Vicki & Kathleen
Kamloops

It was a beautiful day for a beautiful wedding and it was wonderful finally being a guest at a wedding for my friends instead of the photographer – even though I wasn’t officially working, I couldn’t resist snapping a few photos of these two gorgeous ladies! I met these two lovelies through my sister and my boyfriend before I moved to Kamloops and have become good friends of mine over the year and we’ve had some great moments together (especially when I was able to capture their engagement and boudoir photos!) Their ceremony was so heartfelt and indicative of their love for one another. There were some tears, and there were lots of laughs (probably because their officiant is their really great friend and is known to be the hilarious one!) The day was perfect, surrounded by friends and family all there to celebrate and have a good time! Love you ladies! xo
