From these pictures you would never guess that Luke and Piper’s wedding day was rained out!

lukepiperblog_aimsphotography_okanagan_vernon_photography_wedding_-photos-14

The downpour caused their original ceremony location to be changed last minute…which also included the need to find a new location for their formal pictures.

However, I couldn’t be more delighted with our “plan B” location and the fun we had.

It’s been a little while coming…but here’s a peek at Isaac and Amanda’s lovely wedding day! I was trying to decide what to write for this post and words just didn’t come and won’t do justice to what I want to say.  My sister, my best friend, is married and now lives far away. It’s been fun editing these pictures because I always get to see her beautiful face!

I was honoured to not only photograph but also be a bridesmaid for this wedding… I’m very thankful for the help of Jess from Jess and Andy Photography for making that possible! So, I’ll leave the words now and let the pictures do the talking!

With their wedding being in March, we knew from the start that weather would be unpredictable (at best!) We were so blessed to be able to use the upstairs of one of our favourite coffee shops for our formal pictures…! The staff were so accommodating!  The atmosphere was awesome!

I’ve had these gorgeous pictures on my computer for awhile and I’m so excited to finally be sharing some of them on here…meet Kim; to say she’s awesome would be an understatement.  She has a great sense of humour, and is always up for an adventure wether it be a road trip or just a coffee shop meet up.

Photography_AimsPhotography_Portrait_OkanaganPhotographer_Kelowna_Vernon_Kelowna_Photographer_AmySpohr.photos-5

Kim has grown into a strong young woman who works hard to achieve her dreams such as organizing a young people’s mission trip because she’s interested in missions in Ecuador.

Photography_AimsPhotography_Portrait_OkanaganPhotographer_Kelowna_Vernon_Kelowna_Photographer_AmySpohr.photos-3

Not only have I been inspired but her “get’r’done” attitude but also by her self discipline and determination to learn something new.

Photography_AimsPhotography_Portrait_OkanaganPhotographer_Kelowna_Vernon_Kelowna_Photographer_AmySpohr.photos-1

She’s also got the musical gift…on the day I snapped these pictures she “only” had two of the five (I think!) instruments she can play.  We were missing the banjo, a piano, and a bass guitar. (I could probably add in mandolin …which would make six) and I could very well be missing a couple more.

Photography_AimsPhotography_Portrait_OkanaganPhotographer_Kelowna_Vernon_Kelowna_Photographer_AmySpohr.photos-4

I’m excited to see where God is going to lead her and how He’s going to use her for His kingdom!

Taylor and Krista’s wedding was an honour to photograph.  They’re super fun and chill…and their wedding party was pretty cool too 😉

AimsPhotography_Wedding_Photography_Kelowna_Okanagan_Photographer_.photos-15

That moment when a groom first sees his bride is always priceless

Krista is a farrier, so when we were choosing a location and the option of a barn with horses came up…I knew it would be fantastic! It was!  The horses seemed to enjoy the bride and groom too.

I’ve debated a little on this post… Mostly because it’s my fault. I’ve taken this wonderful family’s pictures before, but with my life being busy…

AimsPhotography_AmyGlanz_KidPhotography_FamilyPhotography_OkanaganPhotographer.Photos-3

…in other words I was preoccupied first with a boyfriend, then a fiance, then with planning a wedding… and if you’ve followed my blog at all (or more likely you gave up on my blog and I lost you along the way haha!) you’ve noticed I haven’t been blogging lately.

So to tell the truth, I have some other photoshoots of this family I haven’t posted yet. Like her adorable baby pictures…(ah those eyes!!)

AimsPhotography_AmyGlanz_KidPhotography_FamilyPhotography_OkanaganPhotographer.Photos-7

And another session of these boys before she was born…

But in the end I decided for now, to start current… and in the new year I’ll catch up on what I missed before. 🙂

AimsPhotography_AmyGlanz_KidPhotography_FamilyPhotography_OkanaganPhotographer.Photos-9

But back to why I’m here…! We hit a lovely fall day, no rain, no wind…and not too cold for the little ones! I always enjoy the interactions with children, making them laugh and giggle… (and coaxing them to look at the camera! haha!)

Can’t end without a picture of their lovely parents!

Seriously, these kids just get more adorable every year (not that I’m biased! 😉 )

Can’t get enough of these eyelashes eyes and that closed mouth grin!

Full of giggles and overflowing with spunkiness (I think I made that word up!) I get a kick out of this kid.

AimsPhotography_AmyGlanz_KidPhotography_OkanaganPhotographer.Photos-9

I could probably do a whole blog post just on her expressions and personality (maybe I will!)

Feature: Wedding – Arienne and Jeff

Last June, I had the honour of photographing Arienne and Jeff’s rustic country wedding.  AimsPhotography_Wedding_Okanagan_Portrait.Photography-6

AimsPhotography_Wedding_Okanagan_Portrait.Photography-8

Arienne was an absolutely gorgeous bride. She was cool enough to wear cowboy boots and a jean jacket…and to have her horse join in some of the pictures.

Feature: Amanda

Kelowna_Photography_Amy_Glanz_Portraiture.photos-6So very VERY honoured and excited to feature one of the most beautiful people I know: my sister.

Kelowna_Photography_Amy_Glanz_Portraiture.photos-8We both had Monday off because it was Family Day here in BC.  It was sprinkling snow but not super cold out… so we took advantage of the day and did a little photo shoot.

Kelowna_Photography_Amy_Glanz_Portraiture.photos-2

(It was graciousness on her part because I wanted to play with my new camera.)

Kelowna_Photography_Amy_Glanz_Portraiture.photos-4

Kelowna_Photography_Amy_Glanz_Portraiture.photos-3I’ve blogged about her off and on over my time of blogging so feel like I’d be repeating myself if I sat down and started writing too much.  Maybe today, I’ll let pictures speak. My words wouldn’t do justice to who she is to me.  My best “girlfriend” – you know…that one with which you can laugh hysterically, the one whose thoughts you can almost read, who tells you how it is, listens, gives advice….but the best part? She’s also my sister.  😀 Kelowna_Photography_Amy_Glanz_Portraiture.photos-7If you know this gal in real life, you’re the one who’s blessed!

Sisters: Diane and Loreen

Kelowa_Photography_Portraiture_AimsPhotography.photos-2It was super cold out…and getting late in the day…

Kelowa_Photography_Portraiture_AimsPhotography.photos-3There wasn’t any sunlight out or much daylight left…but, we were running out of time because one of the sisters was moving away and it was the only chance our three schedules fit. So, we went for it!

Kelowa_Photography_Portraiture_AimsPhotography.photos-4

Kelowa_Photography_Portraiture_AimsPhotography.photos-5

 

Kelowa_Photography_Portraiture_AimsPhotography.photos-5-2It was worth all the cold, and the dark, and the mud, for the laughs and the fun and the pictures! Diane and Loreen were a hoot; but most sisters are. 😉 The inside jokes and how they can make each other laugh with a look or a word…sisters are just like that, and it’s always fun to experience it in real life. 🙂

Kelowa_Photography_Portraiture_AimsPhotography.photos-1-2But best of all, I was blessed to capture a moment, some memories… 🙂

Thanks for a great time Diane and Loreen! Love you girls! ❤
