From these pictures you would never guess that Luke and Piper’s wedding day was rained out!
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.
I only have happy memories when I think of their wedding day! Luke and Piper, thanks for letting me be a part of your day!
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!

Following are a few pictures from the ceremony, since I was a bridesmaid all ceremony photos are credited to Jessica Schlamp as well as the above picture.
Getting to photograph women on such an eventful day of their life is always an honour….but to be able to do that for my sister…the honour was that much more special!
A wedding blog post wouldn’t be complete without a few more icluding the bridesmaids and groomsmen…right? Photo credit of the bridal party: Jessica Schlamp

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.
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.
Not only have I been inspired but her “get’r’done” attitude but also by her self discipline and determination to learn something new.
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.
I’m excited to see where God is going to lead her and how He’s going to use her for His kingdom!
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…
…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!!)
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. 🙂
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!
Come back in the new year, I’ll be posting some more of this awesome family!
So there’s been this porcupine hanging around our place recently. Couldn’t resist grabbing my camera today when he came by again.
All in all it was a rather amusing experience. He almost looks like he could be fluffy, eh?
Last weekend some of us hit the slopes up in Revelstoke, it was worth it for lots of reasons… One of which is that we got a day with some amazing scenery. (A piece of me wished I’d taken one of my “nice” cameras with…and the other piece is glad I didn’t because it’s hard to snowboard with a camera, especially because this season I’m rediscovering the sport of snowboarding).
This was taken on the last run of the day. As we came down the hill we had to board through a patch of fog…which had created this quiet winter wonderland. I was struck by the beauty of the snow clinging to the branches…a stark contrast to the bright sunlight up at the top.
Today is a reminder that there’s different types of beauty everywhere – we just have to stop for a moment to see it.
Those days when you come across a picture.
A picture of people. Of good friends.
It brings back memories.
Maybe you’re even in the picture.
It makes you miss the people who are in it because they’re far away.
You know it’s going to be a
long while before you see them again.
That’s when you smile…and are thankful for such awesome people you’re able to call friend and for all the great memories and for all the time you have been given in the past.
So here’s to good times and good friends…the ones who are close and the ones who are far away!
Oh hey there! Can someone kindly tell me where September went? Thanks 🙂
Seriously, I can hardly believe I’m typing out October 1, 2013. I was still kind of personally in that “summer2013” mode. But that’s definitely passed. It’s back to hot drinks at cozy coffee shops, boots and scarfs and jackets…and really, fall is a lovely time of year…one of my favourites.
Just popped in here to say I’m alive and (very!) well and am excited to get back into blogging. I’ve missed it. Come back soon for updates, I have some great stuff to share with you (soonish!) 🙂
I just love nature and forests and pathways. The End.
It’s pictures like this make me want to go back to England. 😉
Last week through pictures.
July 15, glanced down at my gas gage to see that someone (thanks Dad! ❤ ) had filled my tank – kind of a fantastic way to start the week! 🙂
July 17 – Boo paid me with hugs and kisses to share the last piece of mom’s homemade banana bread at supper.
Also one of those “liquid sunshine” evenings when its sunny and rainy at the same time. (Can you see the rain drops? 😉 )
July 18 – fresh Okanagan apricots
July 19 – another view of Okanagan Lake
July 20 – I was a second photographer at a wedding up on Silver Star, a local ski hill. (There are mountain bike trails in the summer) Part of the day included riding the chair lift – which was kind of epic.
July 21 – Our “traditional” Sunday morning breakfast – biscuits.
Well, there you have it!
Hope you’re enjoying your summer too!
