This August, we made a trip to Alberta. One of the places we visited was the Bird of Prey center in Coaldale. Amazing place. You get a chance to get up close to some of the most impressive flying creatures. Owls, eagles, hawks you name it. This great horned owl was sitting on his perch just surveying the world. Love his intense yellow eyes.
We had a chance to do some engagement photos of Cassie and Dave last week. We have known her since she was 12 and it is so cool to see her grow into the confident woman she has become. She and Dave make a great couple. Their wedding next year will be epic
We have had way too many overcast days this winter, so when the sun came out last week, I needed to get out and enjoy it. I was up in the hills above Kelowna and found this spot where the sun broke through on some fresh snow. Enjoy.
Ponderosa Point in Kaleden, BC is one of our favorite spots for weddings. Nestled on a secluded point on Skaha lake, with cool retro cabins, it is like a friendly step back to a simpler time. Stephanie and Mark exchanged vows on a warm September afternoon surrounded with friends and family. Lakeside ceremony and an outdoor reception that followed were perfect. Congratulations.
Jennifer & Travis traveled from Alberta to hold their wedding celebration in Kelowna. They chose two of the best venues. Cedar Creek for the ceremony and Hotel Eldorado for the reception. The vineyard was at its peak in early September and the weather cooperated beautifully. Their friends and family from Eastern Canada made the party super fun . Congratulations.
Nelson BC, situated along Kootenay Lake is renowned for it’s outdoor adventures and fun hippy culture vibe. Imagine our surprise when Angie and Brian’s wedding was held at the most beautiful tudor mansion we have ever seen. Blaylock Mansion was built on a hill over looking the lake by a wealthy mining magnate. The grounds are a perfect place for wedding portraits. The house has a great interior with wonderful windows letting in the light. Thanks for letting us photograph your wedding and also giving us another reason to visit Nelson.
The idea of a backyard wedding appeals to me. Especially when your parent’s yard is a farm in SE Kelowna. Britney & Dan exchanged vows on Saturday August 8,2015 surrounded by friends and family. The ceremony was in the hayfield, and the perfect weather added to the magic.
Laura and Richard did everything right for their wedding in their beautiful yard in Kelowna BC. Tons of friends and family, great food from Joy Road Catering, and live music. Glamorous and yet fun at the same time. Here is a taste.
Keely & Fabien had a storybook location for their wedding July 18, 2015. Keely’s family owns Okanagan Lavender Herb Farm in SE Kelowna. They had an intimate ceremony in the garden, followed by a shaker of a reception in the yard of her family home, complete with live music. Fun.
