When I picked up my camera for that first wedding in 2011, my 19-year-old self cared more about the pretty little details for the party than about the actual event happening in the church. I sort of knew what to look for, having obsessed over wedding blogs for months prior, but it wasn’t an authentic way to capture things. I chose to tell the story the way Pinterest told me I should.

God wouldn’t let me settle for that, though. I knew there was something deeper happening on a wedding day, so I started looking for it. It was then that I saw connection, grace, sacrifice, joy; I found the Sacrament of Marriage being lived out before my eyes. In my couples, in their guests, in the weight the Church puts on this Vocation - my heart was drawn to the authentic beauty of a wedding.

I started asking my couples how they knew they wanted to get married, what they did to stay connected, what advice they'd give me & other single people. I was learning about love but, really, we were becoming friends - and that made all the difference when I showed up to photograph their wedding. 

Let's start here:

I knew about my couple's story and their lives so I could capture all the details that really mattered: hugging the friends that flew in from out of town, kneeling with the nieces in awe of their princess-like aunt, dancing with the dad they weren’t sure was gonna make it. It’s an honour to be the one documenting all that, creating reminders of the good stuff - the golden stuff - for the rest of their lives.

If you couldn’t tell, I can’t do surface level easily. I long for deep life chats that involve tight forearm squeezes and a few loud “Praise the Lord!” type comments scattered throughout. But, when I’m not doing all that, you can probably find me crying happy tears over the dog that just walked by, finding ways to quote Brooklyn 99, and snuggling my husband. Sometimes all at the same time.

I believe life’s better when you share it with friends and that there is always - always - room for brownies. Pizza makes for a great dinner party and the floor is the best place to sit at said party. I wear clothes I'm fine getting a little spit up on because yes, I will hold your baby. I love being Catholic, learning about the Church with my husband, and incense is one of my favourite smells in the world. 

I'm  based in Langley, BC, but I'll travel for you!

"But you make them comfortable, too. You move through life with such humility and realness that others can't help but be real in your presence. Being a naturally awkward soul, your patience and easygoing way of taking pictures brings out the best in us!"
