Engagement Photos at Rathtrevor Beach Park, Parksville Robin and Paul decided to have their engagement photos taken at Rathtrevor Beach Park in Parksville this past September. They are both serious ocean lovers and will be getting married under the outdoor gazebo at Tigh-na-Mara Resort in August- also overlooking the ocean. Paul grew up in Ucluelet and Robin was raised in the Victoria area- beaches are an integral part of their […]
From the Trees to the Seas Kat and Matt recently made the move to seaside Nanaimo from the ever-forested Prince George. Engaged and ready to tackle life together, they relocated to the ocean rich community. They would also become married in this community about one year after moving. They had their engagement photos taken in Autumn and wanted to include some October-esque things. The changing Oak leaves and a couple […]
2018; Visual Storytelling, Playful Experiences, Memories and Friendships Gained The past year has been an incredible journey with photography. I am so grateful for all of my clients and their trust in my capturing a little piece of their life stories. Capturing playful experiences like dancing in the West Coast waves at Sombrio Beach, gazing at the stars by a campfire in Pachena Bay Campground, photographing an outdoor April wedding […]
West Coast Portrait Sombrio Beach is hands down my favorite easier-accessed beach on Vancouver Island. It might even be my favorite beach, and trust me, there are a lot of incredible ones on the Island. This is a popular surf, camping, beach combing, and hiking destination in Port Renfrew along Vancouver Islands West Coast. It truly epitomizes that rugged, raw beauty when envisioning West Coast. Those that visit are washed […]

Should I invite my wedding photographer to my wedding rehearsal? Yes. It is a great idea to invite your wedding photographer to your wedding rehearsal. Rehearsals are usually held the day before, at the same time and place as your ceremony location.

This was a just-for-fun session with Kierra and her bouquet of dried roses. It had snowed the night before, blanketing the mountains and giving a bright feel to our images. Cameron Lake near Cathedral Grove in Whiskey Creek is a beautiful location for shooting. Spring, summer, fall and winter, this is a go to location of mine.
Dancing West Coast Rains On a cold winter day in Parksville, where the rain could have been snow if only a couple of degrees cooler, Bethany and I had a little dance session at Rathtrevor Park. No rain jacket for this shoot, just her favorite plaid T-shirt, the one she calls her “camping shirt!” When clients ask me what they should wear, I always tell them to dress in something […]
