Kirsten + Joey = Married! || Vancouver Wedding Photographer

The weather has finally changed for the better and it was time for my first wedding of the season. Joey and Kirsten are well let’s face it, so much in love and a dream to photograph. A backyard wedding with family and close friends in attendance was the order of the day and with only the phrase “where are my socks” ringing in our ears I would say it was picture perfect. Here are just a few of my favourites.

A few details before the wedding starts, Scarlett Ballantyne made the girls {and Joey} look gorgeous. I think we were all in love with the tent and chandelier, and the cake! Oh the cake that was not supposed to “slip” in the car, but dang that gravity! Mom to the rescue and the cake looked fab.

Grooms take note, one min you may be sweeping the dance floor before your wedding, the next you’ll be in your tux ready to walk down the aisle! Joey you cleaned up great!

I LOVE this photo Joanna captured of Kirsten’s mom looking at her in her wedding dress.
They were so cute saying “no don’t look at me you’ll make me cry!”

Okay this ceremony will go down as one of my favourites and one that had the most memorable lines,
“Joey would you place the ringer on Kirsten’s finger.”

I think this is my fave photo of the day. We’re so lucky to live in BC, where we can step from the forest to the beach in five minutes. Love it!

I love these two! Here’s our two views, Joanna’s on the left and mine on the right!

So it was very important for Joey and Kirsten to get married on June 25, that date didn’t work out locally so they did the next best thing. A little secret wedding in Disney World. They kept it quiet from most of their guests and then announced it after dinner, everyone was so happy and it just added an extra little sparkle to the day.

Okay we know the shoe game, but I’ve never seen audience members play along!
Joey’s dad, Frank, raised his shoe when the question was asked who do you think will change the diapers when you have kids?

Oh the camera. I don’t know who brought it but it made the rounds.
It looked real but when you tried to take a photo it gave you a shock. I want one!!!

Best first dance ever.

When Joey said, “man after this day I think a piggy back is in order.” And Kirsten looked at him and said, “hop on.” You just have to love them. Here’s wishing you so many years of happiness.

Bold Style || Vancouver Wedding Photographers

Wooohooo shoot #8 and we’re going Bold! It’s been so great being creative for these photo shoots for Lisa Gregory we have shot in our first choice locations up until this shoot! But that’s what happens in the real world, we have to think on the fly and change our vision at the last moment. New ideas, a dress borrowed from a fantabulous bride of ours Jenny G, a bouquet picked from Scarlett‘s garden (thanks again Scarlett!!), Amy’s making the bouquet while Jen’s driving and tada we’re downtown taking some great photos of Rebecca.

Scarlett gave Rebecca a dark but brilliant smoky eye with a plum lip. and piled her hair with curls accented with a gorgeous flower and feather hair piece from Jeweliette. She also dazzled with some stunning jewellery from Jeweliette, the cuff bracelet and pendant earrings by local designer Elsa Corsi. A super special thanks on this shoot to one of our brides this year, Jenny G who loaned us her wedding dress for this shoot! We added some blue ribbon around the waist and it’s a different look.

Rebecca has that great serious smoldering look but come on what a smile!!

The landmark of Vancouver the Woodward’s W. Kind of reminds us of Vegas!

Okay this wall was just waiting for us!

A shoe shot…Not much of a surprise for us right?!!

Rebecca did a cultural crawl and remembered this great location near all these artists studios. Jen and I had never seen it before but will probably be back for more photos!!

Scarlett showing her talents! Thank you for all of your awesome work!!
Jen with our giant reflecting frisbee, it goes where we go!

Kim REwears the Dress || Vancouver Wedding Photographers

Kim married Jay on August 19th, 2006. Four years later and wearing her lace wedding dress for our second REwear the Dress photo shoot for Lisa Gregory‘s Eye Candy wedding book, we started to shoot just after Jaime’s shoot was over and the sun was setting…

Why so late?  Kim brought us the idea of a vampire shoot and us being True Blood and The Lost Boys fangirls we were super on board! It was quite a contrast from the romantic look of Kim’s friend Jamie’s shoot just hours earlier but we still wanted beautiful photos so no fake fangs here. Kim was an awesome accessory finder with the black gloves and black necklaces. Scarlett Ballantyne gave Kim the tousled hair and eyes that would stop anyone in their tracks.

As twilight fell we surrounded Kim with candles and thanks to her husband Jay, who happened to have a fog machine, we were able to to bring in a little bit of moodiness. {Thanks to Cole for working the generator! We don’t travel light!} What do you get when you mix corn syrup and red food colouring?  A glass full of a vampire’s dinner.

Thank YOU Kim for a sensational REwear the Dress shoot! You were amazing.

The candles added so much to this shoot, love them!

One of our favourite shots. Breathtaking.

Jamie REwears the Dress || Vancouver Wedding Photographers

Jamie married Charles on August 26th, 2007. Three years later and back in her dress she looked stunning, for this REwear the Dress photo shoot for Lisa Gregory‘s upcoming Eye Candy wedding book.

Scarlett Ballantyne gave Jamie soft curls and light makeup with dark liner with lashes forever! The one thing that we loved was the little touch of glitter in the corner of Jamie’s eyes, it caught the light and sparkled like diamonds.

We wanted to create a very romantic, pretty shoot for Jamie. Jen found a fantastic field of long grass and with the sun shining behind Jamie it was gorgeous! Now note to self: always take antihistamines if you are allergic to nature! Jamie, Jen and I all had sneezing fits and hives were soon to come…Ahhhh long grass beautiful in photos kind of deadly for allergies! Thank goodness for Jen’s emergency stash of cold and sinus in her car!!

Jamie also rocked out some great Stella and Dot accessories which completed her look {contact Jen if you would like to book a trunk show, the new 2010 Fall line just came out and it’s gorgeous!}. A beautiful start to our REwear the Dress Day! Who’s up tomorrow? Jamie’s friend Kim…Stay tuned!!

Three small props turn a large vast field into a more vintage photograph.

Our favourite shot of the day. BEAUTIFUL.

Okay this was the workout of the day and where the hives came from! But we love the photos! Thank YOU Jamie!

Diva Style || Vancouver Wedding Photographers

We are so thrilled and excited to be a part of a new project with Lisa Gregory Special Events. We’ve been planning for a few months and now we’re starting to shoot so welcome to our first shoot for the soon to be published book “Eye Candy” by Lisa Gregory. We asked Scarlett Ballantyne to be our hair and makeup artist for these shoots, and yes she is amazing. Ivory Bridal has been amazing to us as well, they are supplying us with five gorgeous dresses that we can’t wait to shoot. The guys will be looking very dapper in suits provided from Dunn’s Tailors.

We have six photo shoots planned with various {we want to keep you in suspense!} themes for the bride and groom. First up were Brandi and Steve playing the parts of the Diva couple. Okay here’s our disclaimer, by no means were they divas! At times it was hard for them to keep a straight face but we gave them our ideas, had all of Ginger 62 to ourselves, including the DJ booth, and they rocked it!

Our special guest was Emma, who stepped in for her camera shy sister Mia, and with a little work had a princess crown on her cute head.

Here’s to the next month of photo shoots. Brandi, Steve and Emma thanks for not being Divas and being fantastic models!

Lisa Gregory created three different bouquets for this shoot. All were amazing but our favourite was the all white one!

Okay time for fun!

And some behind the scenes!
