Sonny+Sandy=Superlative!



Super-fun, super-styling, super-sweet, super-hot ~ there simply aren't enough adjectives to describe how great Sonny & Sandy are together! Their positive energy is completely contagious & in addition to all the above, they are totally hilarious; I'm pretty sure we've never laughed quite so much on a shoot. These two can barely look at each other without smiling - beautiful, natural smiles that just say 'we are sooooo in love & can't wait to be married!' And we can't wait to be part of their epic 4-day wedding celebration! Some of our fav images from their engagement session.

In Stanley Park a few hours before sunset. Ahh, lovely light.





See? Great smiles.



And lots of laughs.



Sandy, beautiful bride to be.



Sandy, rocking her inner super-model in her Marciano dress & to-die-for Marciano heels (hmm...do you think I could shoot a wedding in those? I covet them!).



Wow - must be something magic in those blueberries on Sandy's family farm.



Love this set.







And rockin the radio-poppers to add a little drama at the end of the night.






Congrats, Sonny+Sandy!

Brooke+Steven=Luminous



From the first time I chatted on the phone with Brooke about her wedding, I knew it was going to a day filled with fun & laughter. I could feel her smile all the way from New Jersey to Vancouver! When she told me she and her fiance Steven were a wedding photographer couple just like us, I knew we had a connection (and when we found out Steven shot a certain Jersey rock star we happen to like a little, we knew we had to meet them)! When we finally did, their connection was tangible - they light up around each other & sparks fly!

It's always an honour to document the day of fellow photographers - here's what we saw.


Pink & orange! Love all of Brooke's colour-coordinated details - especially her divine fuchsia-bowed Kate Spade shoes & citrus Michael Kors rain boots!



Brooke has the best, light-up-your day smile!





And despite the rain, that smile was on full wattage all day.



Beautiful glowing bride.



Steven & Brooke's First Look ~ full of laughter...



...and love.



Brooke gets her sexy on & her silly on while we shoot some quick portraits before the ceremony.



Chris tries out Steven's smile-inducing technique of making farm animal sounds during formals on the guys - it works (but only in Jersey!).



Major rainstorms pushed us indoors to the Westmount Country Club where it was nice and cozy.



Ceremony time.

Drama,



laughter,



and more pink & orange!





Married!



More vibrant details at the reception, including a view camera surrounded by pink & orange florals -wow!



The very fabulous cake, topped with two cameras - wait, are those Canon or Nikon? ;)



First dance.



The evening was filled with emotional speeches and lots of laughter.



And lots of celebrating - the band got everyone out on the dance floor




Near the end of the evening, we snuck the couple out to get some late-night portraits. Love these two of Brooke on the bar. Quick, Bobby's coming!





Congrats, Brooke + Steven! Can't wait to see you again & meet the parrots!
