Brittany and Tyler – Maui

On our recent Maui vacation we met up with our fellow photographer friends Brittany and Tyler to do a photoshoot. The first location that came to mind was one of our absolute favourite places anywhere – the magical enchanted rainforest along the Maui coast! Shauna made the beautiful tropical flower crown, and we packed a few dresses from our collection to use for the photoshoot, but we knew the flowy white wedding dress from Storybook Wedding would be the perfect choice.

On the day of the session we met Brittany and Tyler for lunch at one of our favourite restaurants on the island of Maui – Coconut’s Fish Cafe. If you are ever visiting Kihei you have to try this place. The Fish & Chips and Fish Taco’s are simply amazing! Just thinking about them makes us want to book a return trip!

Our first of three photo locations was a family photo session at one of our favourite beaches with a spectacular view, soft sand, and amazing clear water. The light was just right and the waves were incredible… we were wishing we had brought the boogie boards along to have some fun. These three could not be any cuter… what an adorable family!

Before long it was time to head over to the enchanted Maui rainforest. It’s one of those dream locations where we have always wanted to photograph a session, and has been at the top of our photography bucket list since the first time we visited back in 2008. It’s such a magical place and is like nothing else we have seen before. It was so much fun to finally do a session there and we are definitely looking forward to making a return trip some day as well. The results were even better than we could have ever imagined.

We also wanted to take advantage of the scenic cliffs above the coastline, so made the quick trip up the highway. These ended up being some of our favourite photos from the entire trip. The wind was blowing her hair perfectly, with the waves crashing below, and the scenery in the background was simply breathtaking.

As the light faded it was time to head back for dinner. We stopped in for a delicious pizza dinner at Fabiani’s in Wailea. It was the perfect end to an amazing day – one of our favourite days from the entire trip. Thanks so much to Britt and Ty for being such amazing models. We can’t wait until our next Hawaiian Adventure whether it’s a return trip to Maui some day, or our next likely destination on the island of Kauai.

Francois Lake British Columbia Wedding

Sonja and Cody’s wedding took place on a beautiful summer day at the Nithi Resort along the shores of scenic Francois Lake in the British Columbia Northern Interior. It was a small intimate wedding with approximately thirty friends and family. Sonja and Cody are from Prince George, but they spend time at the Nithi Resort every summer, so it was the perfect place for their wedding with the campground, the cabins, and of course the great scenery at Francois Lake. Sonja did a beautiful job personalizing the wedding details. We especially loved the wedding reception location between the two cabins with twinkle lights and the picnic tables for seating. Part of the reason we love being wedding photographers is that each wedding is so different and unique. When Sonja and Cody told us that their wedding location was going to be at the Nithi Lake Resort we jumped at the chance to travel somewhere new. Here are some of our favourite photos from their wedding day.

Kendra & Jarrett’s Wedding – Prince George BC

Here’s a look at Kendra & Jarrett’s wedding day in Prince George BC. Kendra did an amazing job of styling every little detail of their wedding. She chose such beautiful and classic colors – gray & soft pink, and some stunning Vera Wang bridesmaid dresses. Their wedding ceremony took place in the atrium at the University of Northern British Columbia, which has amazing natural light from the skylights. It was a beautiful ceremony filled with lots of happiness, and smiles all around. After the wedding ceremony it was time for some photos, with stops at Forests for the World and then down to Cottonwood Park. Their wedding reception was held at the Hart Crown Banquet Hall which is a great reception venue, and the food is fantastic! They even have catering from a favourite local indian restaurant, Dana Mandi, whose butter chicken is insanely good!! They have a prime rib option as well to make sure they have something for everyone. One of our favourite wedding dinner’s of the year!

Troy & Melissa’s Banff Wedding

Troy and Melissa were married at the beautiful Mount Norquay Resort, located in the Rocky Mountains above Banff Alberta. From the moment they contacted us a year and a half ago, we knew it would be an amazing wedding day and we were anxiously awaiting the trip. Melissa is from Prince George and Troy is from Australia. They fell in love while Melissa was teaching over there & decided to get married in one of the most beautiful places in the world – Banff, Alberta. Many of their family and friends from Australia came to Canada for the event and, for some it was their first time here.

We stayed with the wedding party and many of the guests at the Hidden Ridge Resort. What an amazing location nestled in the Rocky Mountains, just a few minutes from downtown Banff. On our way to the Resort we took a wrong turn, which was very fortunate since we came across the perfect location for their first-look session – a long stairway in front of an amazing rock wall.

After Melissa & Troy had their first look session, we met up with the Bridal Party at the Fenland Trail near the Vermillion Lakes. It was a perfect location for photos – with a clear mountain stream and lots of large spruce trees to provide some protection from the rain. If you go there, be sure to bring some bug spray as the mosquitoes were pretty intense.

Before long, it was time to head up Mount Norquay for the wedding ceremony. As we made our way up the hill the skies began to clear off. We pulled over at the Mount Norquay Lookout for a few more photos to take advantage of the scenic lookout above the town of Banff… some of our favourite photos of the day. What an amazing view of the town and the entire valley below!

Their wedding ceremony was originally planned for the balcony at the lodge, but with all the rain it had to be moved indoors. Still a beautiful place for a wedding – the lodge is beautiful with lots of natural light and the food was fantastic. Such an amazing day with so many great memories. Here are some of our favourite photos from Melissa & Troy’s Banff Wedding Day. (Make sure you scroll all the way down – you don’t want to miss their “Day-After Photo Session” at the stunning Moraine Lake!)

The next day we headed out for an After Wedding Session at Moraine Lake near Lake Louise. It is one of the most spectacular and scenic locations in the Rocky Mountains, and we really wanted to take some wedding photos there. We didn’t have time on the wedding day since it’s a bit of a drive from Banff, so the best option was an after wedding photo session. There was quite an audience with the tourist cameras going off all around us, so we moved down to a quieter location, which was the perfect spot to take advantage of the amazing blue water as a background. There was even a bit of a wind to catch the veil. It was so much fun, and we can’t wait until our next after wedding session. Here are some of our favourites.
