We were drenched head to toe from the sideways rain for much of this engagement session but what a fun morning in drizzly Vancouver.

Dean asked for some portraits—some more in-studio and conventional and some making use of Vancouver’s urban landscape. Here’s one of them.

I love portrait sessions that allow me to really get to know a person. Usually this leads to spontaneous moments like this one.

Quintessential Vancouver. Kicked off the busiest wedding weekend of the year with Brian & Maggie.

Early morning dreams of Osoyoos. Here to document a couple with their family and friends, around the mountains and vineyards.

I’ve been referencing some of my work from last year while editing my latest weddings. I won’t forget the air, sounds, and colours of Morocco. That light, too.

"…I want you to know you are still my nemesis today." Nimisha says to Mark in her vows. They have a way about them, these two.

The last few weeks have been some of the best of my career so far, I think. Not just because of the people I’ve been able to photograph or the recognition I’ve received—but the outpouring of support from everyone has been heart-warming and phenomenal. Recently, I submitted images to @junebugweddings “Best of the Best Destination Wedding Photos” collection thinking “well, why not” and am so excited they selected this image. Thanks for joining me on this wild and amazing ride, everyone. I’m grateful for every opportunity to photograph people in incredible places all over the world.

As the sun started to set, I took these two on a little walk through the tallest grasses in the area.

You know the wedding’s going to be good when clients want to start off their day like this.

I’m a bit shocked but really honoured. Yesterday, I was recognized as one of the Top 30 Canadian Wedding Photographers Under 30 by the Canada Photo Convention, alongside some of my most talented colleagues and friends. Thank you to everyone who’s supported me these past four years—family, friends, teammates, colleagues, and the community. It’s meant so, so much to me.

I wrote about this and my year at its half-way mark on my blog.

The nature of my work keeps me grounded here in Vancouver during much of the summer, so I’ve been living vicariously through the images of epic vistas and hiking trips so many of my @instagram friends have been sharing lately—and the images I’ve collected that I’m really happy to have created.
