Letitia+Anthony=Breathtaking | Vancouver Wedding Photographers

It was in the way they were both so nervous while getting ready. The way Letitia held her breath as she came out of the elevator to see Anthony for the first time. They way Anthony held her face so delicately. And the way both of them kept looking at each other like they couldn't believe this day was finally here. As Chris whispered to me during the ceremony, "Wow, these guys are really into each other. I mean really." It's always a pleasure to photograph a couple who are so emotionally connected - here are some of our favs from the day.

Gown (Melissa Sweet) and shoes (with ruffles!).

Cream, white, and silvery gray colour scheme - classic.

Getting ready with Letitia was especially fun because among her bridesmaids were former C+L Vancouver brides Louise and Robin and future C+L Puerto Rico bride Cynthia, and of course, our fav MUA & tv celebrity from the Ultimate W Expert Challenge Nadia!

Letitia is such a breathtaking bride.

First Look. I love this sequence.

Good times!

What a gorgeous couple!

Their Hart House ceremony was simple & elegant. Letitia reaches over to brush a tear from Anthony's face.

And Anthony brushes a tear from hers'.


Smiles & laughs at the tea ceremony.

And throughout the speeches.

My fav moment of the day: when Letitia cashed in a coupon her mom gave her 19 years ago for "six juicy kisses".

First Dance.

And Chris' fav image of the summer.

Congratulations, L+A!

S+R=Amor {PART III} | Cabo San Lucas Wedding Photographers

Cabo San Lucas Wedding Photographers

There's nothing we love more than a YOU+ME session. Except a YOU+ME session that includes shooting after dark. At a new location as exciting as Capella Pedregal. With a bride wearing a long veil on a windy night.

We had never been to Capella Pedregal resort before, but our couple told us we would love it. They were so right. We were only there for an hour or so but fell in love with the architecture, landscaping, and all the textures and design details. It was the perfect place to create some portraits of the wonderful, happily married couple. Some of our favourites:

After packing it away for months, Chris dug out his tilt-shift lens again for these portraits. I couldn't choose - like them both!

The resort was even more romantic once the sun went down and all the lanterns went on.

My favourite.

Domes+fire+wind=Chris' fav set from the day.

Shoot by moonlight.

 Moonlight kiss.

To get in and out of the resort, guests go through a dramatic, chandelier-lit 300-metre long passageway carved through the heart of the mountain. Tunnel of love! :)

Cabo San Lucas, Mexico is already a gorgeous place for a wedding - add in the ambiance & architecture of  Esperanza Resort, (awarded Best Hotel, Best Spa, and Best Service for Mexico by Travel & Leisure Magazine) and a vibrant couple, and you have a photographer's dream event!

A few of our favourite portraits of the happily married couple!

And I can't resist just two more of the gorgeous bride.

And just plain adorable:

As night fell, the lights went up, and the party got started. The view of the beach lounge & dance floor from the reception.

Golden accents & fresh fruit made up the simple and elegant decor.

The groom's speech.

Beach party time!

First Dance.

Fireworks, fire dancers + kick-ass DJ flown in from LA made the party one to remember!

Special shout-out to our good friend, awesome photographer, & fellow tequila-drinker Tim of Santa Barbara based Halberg Photographers and to all-round great gal-pal & Vancouver videographer Laura of Laura Ann Cinema for joining us.
