Chantell & James’ Wedding at Hatley Castle & Bear Mountain in Victoria BC
Although I didn't know her at the time, I actually went to elementary school with Rileigh. I was a few years older, and as the rule seems to be when you're young, you mostly just talk to kids in your own grade. Fast forward a few years and Rileigh's long time best friend Farrah is now my brother's wife, and in the lead up to my brother's wedding last year I had the chance to meet and get to know Rileigh and Kelly, so I was thrilled when they asked if I would be their wedding photographer. On Wednesday we met up at Elk/Beaver Lake in the sunshine before heading to a busy Mt Doug for a beautiful sunset, followed by wings and beer at Smuggler's Cove pub. Here are a few favourites
I first met Danielle a few years ago while shooting one of her best friends' engagement session up at Mt Washington. We got along really well while shooting with Ellen and Jamie so I was stoked to see her name in my inbox a couple of years later letting me know that she was getting married! Matt and Danielle live and are getting married in Kelowna, but they knew they were going to have a chance to visit Victoria over Christmas time which gave us the opportunity to shoot their engagement session. It was pretty chilly grey day but the rain held off while we explored parts of Gordon Head around Danielle's grandparents' home. After a coffee break to warm up we finished off up at Mt Doug, here are a few favourites!
