Faith High School Graduation
Kamloops BC

Kamloops High School Graduation

Faith is like a part of our family – she’s been dating my little brother for just over two years now and over that time we have gotten quite close and I absolutely love her!! When she messaged me about her High School Graduation photos, I was ecstatic to photograph her again, but I knew that I wanted to make her session even more special! (see her other session here) Faith works for Candace at First Comes Love Gowns & Events, and when I called Candace to ask if we could maybe borrow another option for a grad dress for Faith, she suggested that we take out a wedding dress instead! I couldn’t refuse an offer like that! When she was trying on a few dresses, this one appeared and completely blew us all away! It’s the epitome of a princess fairytale dress and we had so much fun in such a gorgeous location! Faith’s graduation dress was also a knock out dress, and fit her personality so well. It was a show stopping dress that didn’t need a lot of embellishments to be noticed, and it unlike any grad dress I had ever seen. Faith fits all of these descriptions as well – she is such a beautiful person both inside and out and is one of the sweetest people I’ve ever met. She is soft spoken but has a smile and a laugh that would make any head turn! She is mature beyond her years and is all around just so lovely. Thank you for always trusting in  my wacky ideas (like scaling a steep hill to get to a mosquito infested forest and then barely dodging a huge rattlesnake!) xoKamloops High School Graduation Kamloops High School Graduation Kamloops High School Graduate Kamloops High School GraduationKamloops High School GraduationKamloops High School Graduate Kamloops High School GraduationKamloops High School Graduation Kamloops High School GraduationKamloops High School Graduation Kamloops High School GraduationKamloops High School GraduationKamloops High School GraduationKamloops High School GraduationKamloops High School GraduationKamloops High School Graduation Kamloops High School Graduation Kamloops High School GraduationKamloops High School Graduation Kamloops High School Graduation Kamloops High School Graduation Kamloops High School Graduation Kamloops High School Graduation Kamloops High School GraduationKamloops High School Graduation Kamloops High School Graduation Kamloops High School Graduation Kamloops High School Graduation

Tamara – Boudoir Photographer
Kamloops BC

Kamloops Boudoir PhotographerThis gorgeous lady is actually a super talented makeup and Henna artist, as well as a hair stylist here in Kamloops! She’s  done my makeup on more than one occasion (and I always feel like a million bucks afterwards!) and she used to be a popular choice at Beauty Code Boutique. Tamara has the most beautiful caramel colored skin and she has the most sultry looks: she absolutely killed every shot that we took for her boudoir session! I admire girls who can pull off bright red lipstick (probably because I most definitely can not!) and she definitely blew me away with how great she looked with show stopping red lips and how it really brought out her confidence! She was such a trooper being sexy in abandoned schoolhouses, getting on top of dusty old cars, and baring it all in the bushes! I love love love it when girls are adventurous and are open to anything, because they trust in themselves, and in me! Thank you so much Tamara for letting me showcase your stunning photos! I love all of them! xo  Kamloops Boudoir PhotographerKamloops Boudoir Photographer Kamloops Boudoir Photographer Kamloops Boudoir Photographer Kamloops Boudoir PhotographerKamloops Boudoir Photographer

Taylor + Graham Calgary Wedding
Banff, Alberta

storyboard040Taylor & Graham are that couple that you would look at and think – “Wow I want to have a relationship like that!” They are effortless together in everything that they do and their wedding was a perfect representation of how the two of them are together. As soon as I saw them at their rehearsal the night before I was greeted with a huge hug from both of them and the most genuine smiles that said that were happy I was there. Their friends were no different; ridiculously sweet and kind and I felt right at home instantly.  I always say that friends and family say so much about a person, which makes sense because if that’s who you are choosing to spend your time with, they most likely are similar to you! I knew it would be a great day from how much fun we had at their engagement session last year (you can see those photos from Calgary here) and I was right, I loved every single minute of their day! From how relaxed the girls were hanging out and getting ready together, to how chill the boys were watching the hockey game and goofing around. I loved that I couldn’t even read what Graham had wrote to Taylor on the gift he got her because I knew I would cry like a baby and I loved that every time I looked at them they were grinning at each other from ear to ear. These two have great energy and it was reflected in everyone who was a part of their wedding – they had the most amazing guests, their limo driver was amazing, the people at the Rimrock were fantastic, the DJ was incredible and the day went along without a hitch: good energy attracts good people and these two have more than enough of it to spread around. I couldn’t have asked for a better couple to photograph for my first wedding in Banff, Alberta! So much love to you both, and I know without a doubt that you will have the most fantastic life together! xo
