Rockwater Secret Cove Wedding - Sunshine Coast, BC - Alanna + Brandon

When I think about what we do, I have moments when I really realize just how lucky we are. We get a front row seat to one of the best days of a couples life. We get to be with them more than anyone else that day, and we get to see everything! We see the nerves in the morning, the excitement of the first look, the emotion at the ceremony, the joy at the reception and all the moments in between. We see it all. And we've seen it all. Every combination of emotion/reaction to every moment of the day. And as far as seeing a couple right up close goes, watching Alanna + Brandon on their wedding day was one of the most fun 'front row seat' experiences we've ever had. 

These two are fuuuuuun. We fell in love with them when we first met them. We fell even harder when we created a film for their business a few months ago (watch here). And finally in creating their wedding film, we straight up fell over. 

Watch this film. We know you'll fall for them too.

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!

Sea To Sky Gondola Wedding - Squamish, BC - Candice-May + Christopher

For Maclean's birthday this year, we decided to go up the sea-to-sky gondola for the first time! This place is a must. see. A MUST SEE! Words cannot describe this view! Having spent my entire life driving the highway to Whistler, I had NO idea what I wasn't seeing! We invited some of our good friendsto come with us along with us - Shari and Mike Photographers and Jenna from Revel events (and Erica from Filosophi) and had SO much fun! Oh wait a second, my bad. Candice May and Chris invited all of us to come up because it was their wedding!

Either way this place blew my mind. Blew it right out of my head. And if you add to this view a gorgeous couple with a beautiful love story you get - one of my favorite wedding films yet. 

So happy birthday Maclean! Even though we were technically 'working', we got to witness something beautiful, create something amazing AND spend it with some of our favorite peeps. Pretty solid day.

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!
