Mary+Fred

"Love is the bridge between two hearts..."
~Anonymous.


There's nothing like the Vancouver skyline at sunset! Especially for a romantic couple like Mary and Fred.

We spent the afternoon with this handsome Aussie (love that accent!) and his gorgeous finacee in some unlikely spots!

Under the overpass:

By the mechanics' garage:

And on the docks:

Before ending up under the bridge:

What a beautiful night & a beautiful couple! We can't wait for the wedding!

Jackie+Rick...Featured in Real Weddings Magazine


Check out this season's Real Weddings Magazine to see a couple we absolutely adore. Rick and Jackie got married at the Aerie resort on Vancouver Island on July 9, 2005 and their wedding was pure elegance. Check out their romantic story - on newsstands this week!

Emmy Nomination!

It's not every day you get an invitation to the Emmys! We were thrilled to receive word today that the northwest chapter of The National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences has honoured our NFB film Leaving the Lights with an Emmy Nomination for best documentary in the Cultural/Historical Category.

For two years, Chris worked on this National Film Board project as director and cinematographer (he hired me as creative consultant and production assistant!). We got to spend time in one of the most beautiful spots in the world with two of the most incredible people in the world. On the isolated shores of Nootka Island, we learned a lot about life from two west coast legends: lightkeepers Ed and Pat Kidder.


The embroidered pillow? It says "Screw the Golden Years".

These "barnacles on the rock" as they call themselves, met at age 16, ran away to a lighthouse, and spent the next 43 years "on the lights". Romantic? Yes. Tough? For sure.

In a wilderness of total isolation, this couple saw it all, went through it all, and grew from it all. Pat and Ed have been honoured for many things from their bravery in rescuing fishermen from the cold Pacific to their leadership in speaking up against cuts to the Coast Guard. But what we admire most about them, is their tenacious (and tender) love for each other.

Thanks, Pat & Ed!

Lisa+Tony

Sunshine+Stanley Park+Gauguin martinis=an awesome engagement shoot with Tony and Lisa!


We had such a blast with these guys, especially shooting them on the hood of Tony's Boxster! We were definitely stopping traffic on the seawall...there were a few tourists taking pictures, and why not? These two looked like a couple of movie stars!
