Josh & Karly | Mission Wedding Photography

In life, I’ve found that everyone has their own opinions. You can’t do anything without someone praising you, and someone else judging you. I have so much respect of Josh and Karly. Teenage marriage has a horribly un-encouraging stereotype stuck to it that it won’t last. A lot of people associate teenage love with lust, but, modeled by their parents, I truly believe these two know what love really is. The way they look at each other shows not only love, but commitment. I can’t put my finger on what exactly it is, but it’s undeniable. They’re a beautiful team. And their beautiful daughter is being raised in the most beautiful way with so much support around them. These two are in it for the long haul.

Their wedding was in Josh’s backyard, and you couldn’t look in any directions without seeing a handful of beautifully handcrafted details. (Little shout-out to Pinterest). Everything from bride/groom games for guests to play while they waited, to the table settings, to the S’more roasting bar, to the lock on Karly’s bouquet and key on josh’ boutonniere. It was extremely impressive!

I’ve had the privilege of walking with Josh and Karly in a photographic sense. I had the privilege of shooting their maternity pictures, and their newborn picturs as well. Their breathtaking baby girl is growing up so fast! Click here for Josh and Karly’s maternity shoot, and click here for the Newborn photoshoot with Jonnie.

I just LOVE this one!

Thank you Karly and Josh for giving me the privilege of celebrating your day with you!

Be Blessed!!

Happy Monday.

Cam & Sara | Minter Gardens Wedding

It makes me smile just to think about these two. The way Cam absolutely beams at Sara. the way Sara melts under Cam’s gaze.. Sigh..

Cam and Sara had a beautiful wedding and reception at Minter Gardens in Chilliwack. They couldn’t have had a more beautiful day. The clouds didn’t even dare to threaten us. I had never been there previous to going with these two, and I could see what the hype was all about. There is so much variety to the grounds, and we nearly ran out of time to visit all the locations we wanted, and with such a beautiful photogenic couple, it was hard to stop taking pictures.

(Click here for Cam and Sara’s Engagement Pictures from last fall.)

Here’s a glimpse of their special day. : )

It takes alot for me to cry at a wedding, But Cam made me come close.


SUCH a fun bridal party. : )

Thank you to both of you for letting me be apart of the most important day of your life. It was such a joy to be with you two and document your commitment.

Happy Wednesday. : )

Jimmy and Kelly Cochrane | Langley Wedding

Kelly and I have been friends since we learned our ABC’s in kindergarten. Back when life was simple, I wanted to be her friend, and she must have thought my lime green head-to-toe outfits were cool because we’ve been friends ever since.

Kelly and Jimmy met at highschool in Grade 9, and they were friends right away but Jimmy moved away in grade 11, and the two of them stayed in contact. Little did they know that a highschool crush would lead them here. Jimmy and Kelly’s relationship is so real and it was such an honor to photograph their wedding. Everything and everyone matched so beautifully. Every detail was thought out from the Stenography on the game books to keep people entertained, the head table flowers, to photo props, to the hilarious and touching speeches from family and friends.

Here is the absolutely radiant Kelly and her handsome groom, Jimmy.

Each guest at the wedding received one of these fun booklets of games. Kelly is a stenographer and the writing on the back, “SKWR*US/MAERD” means “Just Married” in steno. so fun! 

Thank you Jimmy and Kelly for letting me have a part of your beautiful day!

Blessings to both of you on the amazing road that lies ahead of you.


Happy Sunday!

Jess – Portraits

 Jess is one of those girls that you love being friends with. I haven’t know her for a terribly long time, but there’s so much that I want to tell the world about this gem. She has such a pure heart. She is quiet and gentle, but strong. She is a creator and has a absolutely beautiful gift of making things with her hands. She is extremely gracious. Oh, and VERY beautiful.  There’s so much more that I’m discovering about this beautiful girl, but ’til then, Meet Jess. : )

Happy Monday! : )

Starfish & Low Tides – Saturna Island

The Ocean is my favourite place to be in the entire world. The sound of the waves, the salty smell, the gentle breeze, and millions of things to see! My Dad helped my uncle build a cabin Saturna island over 10 years ago, now that it’s for sale, I really felt that during this last visit I had to soak everything in.

I woke up one morning and everyone was gone, so I took my camera out for a walk to the most eastern point of the island, praying that God would open my eyes to new things, and He totally did. It was one the lowest tides I’ve ever seen, and the sea life was amazing. Massive barnacles, and crazy patterns on the sandstone with sealife. I’ve seen plenty of starfish that they are hard to impress me anymore, but I saw more that I’ve probably ever seen before. I couldn’t turn any direction without seeing a crevice filled with countless starfish.

Heres a small glimpse of my experience that day with God’s faithfulness and beauty.

Happy Sunday. : )

Brittany – Saturna Portraits

This girl is one of my favorite people in the entire world, and I’ve been alot of places and met ALOT of people.

She had the most beautiful singing voice, and uses her gift all the time. She never stops giving. She has the type of personality where if she has three of something, she’ll take one for herself and give you two. She sees beauty in simple things in life that most people overlook. Her heart is the size of the ocean! She’s a loyal friend, and loves investing time in people. I am so proud of who she’s becoming and can’t wait to see what God will do through her in the next couple years.

Sometimes I forget we’re related because we get along so well and have so much fun together.

This is my sister, Brittany.

I had such a fun day getting to know Josh and Karly. Not only are they an adorable couple, but they are dedicated to one another. I know God will bless them. Karly is so beautiful and petite, and her baby belly makes her radiate! She really is filled with joy and excitement for the future.

One thing I have no doubt about, this baby will come into the world so loved!
