When I was asked to photograph Ali and Aoife’s wedding, I jumped at the chance. These two ladies are so full of fun, and have so much love for each other, it’s ridiculous. And then they mentioned it would be at the Hart House in Burnaby — such a stunning location.
The day turned out to be gorgeous, despite the weather forecast leading up to the event. Aiofe had friends and family coming all the way from Ireland, so thankfully Vancouver weather decided to play nice. The ladies showed up in a vintage taxi, all decked out for the occasion. Chauffeur Norm did a fabulous job of making them feel special. An afternoon ceremony, complete with dog ring bearer, went off perfectly in the late afternoon sunshine. And then it was champagne and congratulations on the grass afterwards. We headed down the boardwalks for some fun pictures with the kids from the wedding party, and then took our time winding our way back to the reception with just Ali and Aoife.
A big thank you to Tanja Aelbrecht from Tanja and Jelger Photography for second shooting for me. And for Ali and Aoife for letting me be a part of their special day.
This warm spring weather has been amazing for late afternoon photography sessions and I had the pleasure of capturing the special time for my friend as she creates a new life. I love shoot pregnant mamas, as the human body is truly amazing, and I find it so captivating to photograph those special moments before a baby is born.
The Coquitlam River and forest was a gorgeous backdrop for our session. Please enjoy the teasers:
This little man was an absolute dream to photograph. Actually, the whole family was amazing — so much love in this family! Our time in the studio was quick, too — 2 hours from start to finish made this session one of my fastest to date — with a gallery of over 100 images of them! Enjoy your images!
One daughter is a joy, and the second is a blessing. These girls are going to have such a great time growing up together and being best friends. Older sister N is such a sweetie, and I can tell by the way she is so gentle with her sister that she is up for the task of teaching little K everything she knows.
I look forward to watching little Miss K grow up, with the Baby’s First Year sessions.
I love when families get together to capture moments of life happening in the now. I’ve been photographing this family for the past 4 years, and I love watching the littles get bigger and grow into their characters.
This gorgeous girl was a superstar for our session, and although she made me work getting her to sleep (I had to laugh when mom brought her in and told me she was a “day owl” and never liked to sleep during the day) I think we got some amazing shots of her. They brought some great props (they are big Raiders fans, and Dad admitted that he’s got a bit of a shoe addiction.) and we managed to move her around without waking her up too many times.
