North Arm Farm Wedding - Pemberton, BC - Jess + Chris

We met Jess. We LOVED Jess. She told us we would love Chris (who was in London). We believed her. 
Fast forward to just before the wedding. We finally meet Chris. Jess did not lie. We do love Chris. 
Jess and Chris together are SO fun, super laid back and addicted to travel. They even incorproated travel into their wedding and came from their home in London to the little mountain town of Pemberton to get married (doesn't matter that Jess is technically from Vancouver... ) 
As their love for travel and adventure is so apparent in all they do and the fact that BC blessed them with the best weather we've had to date this year - I think travel loves them too :) We hope you enjoy their film!

About a year ago we had the privilege of filming Chris’ elaborately planned proposal to Jess - and by elaborately I mean CAPSLOCK OMG!!! He set the bar reeeeeal high.

            Chris,

            Thanks a ton!

            Yours truly,

- All boyfriends of girlfriends who have watched your proposal and now have impossibly high expectations

Ever since, we have been so excited to film their wedding! And it didn’t disappoint. These two are so much fun, kind, creative, and impossibly organized (thank you again Jess for all the spreadsheets and diagrams – there are few things in life I love more than a good spreadsheet!)

I feel a little bit sad that after having these two in our thoughts and on our calendar for so long that it’s over! They’re married now. And I’m so happy for them! But maybe… an elaborate vow renewal is in your future? Chris? We’ll keep in touch ;)

We loved working alongside the absolutely awesome Jeff + Cat of The Apartment Photography! Can't wait to work with you two again! 

Jacquie + David || No Turning Back

Going into any wedding, you have your own idea of how you think it will go. You see the day mapped out in your head and from that you anticipate what will happen – how the day will unfold, what parts you think will be unique, important, fun or even tricky to shoot. Sometimes you go into a wedding thinking it may be difficult logistically, or maybe you’re worried because there are a lot of variables you can’t pin down. Other times you go into it be-yond stoked because everything looks perfect on paper and you love your couple and its going to be the best day ever. 

But you can never know for sure. We are constantly surprised. 

Sometimes when you think its going be really tricky it ends up being the smoothest day and the couple says a thousand awesome things and the light is good and your table has a bread basket (that is actually how I judge the quality of any wedding).

Other times when you think its going to be a flawless day, nothing goes quite right. You have to make concessions on just about everything and guests constantly ask you to take their picture during cocktail hour (“it's a VIDEO camera” you say, but they don’t hear you. They pose anyway and sometimes you just give up and pretend you took a photo).

And sometimes you’re right. Sometimes – very rarely – the day turns out exactly the way you thought it would. This was one of those times. Jacquie and Dave’s wedding had all the makings of being incredible – and it delivered.

The location was stunning. The couple was perfect. The plan of using the cards and groomsman speech to help tell the story worked out as we’d hoped. No one asked me to take their photo at cocktail hour. And I got my bread.

Sooooooooo.... you notice anything new around here...? We've got ourselves a shiny new blog! Nice eh? We dig it. For a while now we've been wanting to create something a little more stripped down. A more simple place where we feel comfortable to post both personal escapades along with our latest work. It took longer than it should have (switching platforms is tricky), but it's finally here and we are extremely happy.

With that out of the way, we wanted to share a new film with you!

This summer has been incredible so far and we still have a ways to go. But at the beginning of the season we had the great pleasure of flying out to Calgary to film Michelle + Michael's wedding. These two are awesome. Seriously. Michael is a professional Hockey player in the NHL (Arizona Coyotes) and Michelle does amazing work with the team’s charities. Also, Michelle is tall like Erin, so Erin liked her extra ;)

When we Skyped with them last year, we instantly noticed their laid back attitudes and kind personalities. We were also pretty impressed with how much traveling they do! They're constantly on the go from home in Arizona, travelling to see family, and often in a new city every couple of days during the NHL season. How?!?! Its so much time away from home! But these two make it work because their "Home" is not a house or a city, but really is whenever and wherever they are together : )

We knew that we wanted this to be part of the story for their film. Take a look!

Mark + Gillian || Save The Date

Gillian is into fashion and music and art. Mark is an engineer. They are the perfect couple.We got to spend a beautiful, sunny evening with this couple at Crescent beach filming a save-the-date for them – cutest idea! And I’m very proud. I would like to take a little credit for this as Maclean and I did a similar film for our wedding invitations - but this one was much more beautiful. We hit it right that evening – the light was perfect! The couple was also really creative. They showed up with a list of things they like to do together to incorporate into their film. Example – they love to go dingy-ing together, so they brought a dingy, blew it up and hopped in the freezing ocean. It was quite entertaining for Mac and I actually.

We had so much fun with Gillian and Mark and are so excited for them! If Gillian has anything to do with this wedding, it will be incredibly beautiful and unique (I follow/love her blog - gillian-nicole.blogspot.ca/). Congratulations to you both!

-Erin

Spring Styled Shoot || Behind The Scenes

A couple weeks ago Jaclyn from 6Pence Planning & Design contacted us and asked us if we wanted to be apart of a styled shoot with her, Jamie Delaine and some other amazing vendors. So obviously we jumped at the chance. We had a blast working with everyone on the shoot and we think you can see that in the piece below. Check it out![vimeo 40177128 w=639 h=359]
