Yan & Casey's Wedding at Kootenay Lake

We had a great time photographing Yan & Casey's Jewish wedding. At the ceremony, they said their traditional Jewish wedding vows and included the circling ceremony and hora chair dance which quite literally had us sitting on the edge of our seats! Amazing!

Riley & Aaron's Wedding at Kootenay Lake

Riley and Aaron are a head-over-heels in love couple first meeting in Grade 8 at Parkland Middle School and have been best friends ever since. A true testament to a couple’s commitment, love and how it grows over the years. When Riley came home one night, she found a letter and flowers waiting on the bed for her. As she neared the end of the letter, Aaron slowly came into the room bent down on one knee and proposed. What a great day! We’re so happy to have spent such an amazing time with this wonderful couple.

Star Dance

I traveled to Fernie late last night to meet up with fellow photographers at Hosmer just outside of Fernie. It took us a few tries to finally find a good location. With -30 degree weather, you don't realize what kind of challenge it is to photograph for over an hour in conditions like this. Typically battery life lasts me a full days worth of shooting, but in these conditions I was only able to get an hours worth.

An hour later, 112 frames snapped, numb fingers and a gimped tripod whos legs froze solid I was able to capture my very first star trail image. On the bottom right side you can see the Aurora Borealis common in high latitudes. The "Dance of the Spirits" put on a great show! I'm so glad I live where I do!

Rick and Jessica McMillan

Thrilled to share some snaps of Rick and Jessica's wedding! Taking a helicopter ride to the top of the Rockies Rick proposed and the couples were engaged September 10, 2012. It started off with an emotional first look as Jessica made her way out from the main entrance outside where Rick patiently waited. A beautiful and heart warming ceremony followed in Cranbrook at the St. Eugene Golf Resort & Casino.
