Shannon+Barney=Radiant



Looking through this Shannon & Barney's images just makes me smile. I see a sequence of beautifully shared moments between two people who truly make each other beam with delight! The Seattle couple's days was simple & elegant and they, and everyone around them, just glowed with happiness at their love.

A few getting ready details.



Loving this dress shot by our awesome friend from Cali, photographer Colin Michael (thanks for being there, Colin!)



The groom.



And the bride.



One more of the beautiful Shannon.



First Look at Queen Anne Hill.






St James Cathedral is such a beautiful church.





I love how Chris framed this stolen moment during the ceremony between the church pillars.



Married!






Party time! The guests (including the lovely Billy+Robyn) rip up the dance floor, the guys go for the garter, and the ladies fight over the bouquet :)



First Dance~romantic & radiant.



The father & daughter dance always turns me to mush - it's just such a emotional part of the evening. The love in this pair of images makes them my favourite.





A little romance by the fireplace to end the night. Congratulations Shannon+Barney!

Grace+Nick=Alluring



A dark moody day, a dog named Chopper, and two beautiful people completely in love made one of our last weddings of 2008 one of our favourites!

Love this image of Nick looking all dark and mysterious and handsome.



The lovely & beautiful Grace.



First Look on the staircase.



There's nothing like a brand new location for spurring on creativity! This was the first time we shot at the Metropolitan and we were inspired to find all kinds of unique backdrops for Grace & Nick's portraits.

Like the hallways...






The lobby with its glitz & gilding.




More hallways - yes, we were totally feeling the reflections that day.



Of course, living in one of the most beautiful cities in the world, we had to have some images that just say Vancouver too.

Wedding party fun under the Granville Bridge.



A little Grace + Nick canoodling :)



Vancouver Art Gallery's pillars + stairs = pure romance.





And one last portrait on a random street corner nearby later that night :)




Congrats Grace+Nick!

Next up this week, the fabulousness of Shannon + Barney in Seattle!
