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.

Feature: Isaac & Amanda

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!

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!

Feature: Kim

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!

Lulu in Lovely Light

AimsPhotography_Child_Kid_Okanagan_Photographer_Canada.photos-1

When writing my last blog post, this picture came to mind.  It represents some of the thoughts and feelings I was trying to convey.  It’s a picture that’s a little different from my same old “usual”.  But I love that it’s different.  The light and the colours.

Besides…she’s just super duper adorable so I’d probably love almost any picture of her!

There’s more from that evening…this is just a tease! Come back soon to see more.

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

AimsPhotography_Wedding_Photography_Kelowna_Okanagan_Photographer_.photos

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.

In Canada, you can’t really have a summer wedding without a stop for ice capps from Tim Horton’s

I loved the exquisite details of buttons and lace on Krista’s dress

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!)

AimsPhotography_AmyGlanz_KidPhotography_FamilyPhotography_OkanaganPhotographer.Photos-10

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!

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

AimsPhotography_AmyGlanz_KidPhotography_OkanaganPhotographer.Photos-12

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

AimsPhotography_AmyGlanz_KidPhotography_OkanaganPhotographer.Photos-2

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!)

AimsPhotography_AmyGlanz_KidPhotography_OkanaganPhotographer.Photos-5

Brotherly love (Can’t you just see the older-brother-pride in his eyes?)

AimsPhotography_AmyGlanz_KidPhotography_OkanaganPhotographer.Photos-3

That same closed mouth grin just melts my heart.

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.

It was a perfectly bright June morning…Arienne and Jeff were so easy.  They’re laid back and relaxed, we had such a great time.

Their love was so beautiful because it’s real, it’s genuine.

Jeff is a wheat farmer so we couldn’t bypass the opportunity to use the endless rolling wheat fields as a back drop.

This was only a few weeks before my own wedding, and it was truly a blessing to be at Arienne and Jeff’s. They inspired me to enjoy every part of my own wedding. To take it easy and have fun!

Arienne and Jeff, it was a privilege to be part of your day.  I wish you only the best in the future!

Since Febuary

To sum up my life since February in a few sentences…

I went to Hawaii and fell in love with the ocean, the colours, the sounds, the mysteries.

photoI came home and got engaged a few days later.

DSC_0041

I did some super awesome photo sessions including a beautiful wedding down in the States.

I planned.

I stressed (fact: every bride stresses at some point even if she doesn’t want to).

I learned.

I matured.

I (tried to!) enjoy it!

(As in most similar situations, there were parts of it I loved and parts of it I detested…but that’s typical.)

…and then I got married!
