| Michelle & Nolan | Married | 08.14.10 |

Dan and I had the sincere pleasure of photographing Michelle and Nolan’s wedding two weekends ago!  We met with them earlier this summer, and instantly got along.  We loved the vibe that Michelle and Nolan gave us when we met them – super chill and easy going!  That’s what made their wedding so great; no schedule set in stone, no events every 10 minutes, everything was so simple and laid back that we felt a bit guilty for hanging out with them and their guests!

Michelle and Nolan are also CAT people!  Bonus points!  Lol!  We got to meet one of their kitties at their downtown apartment, and if we had the time, we would have spent all day talking cats!

It was just the four of us hanging out in Yaletown for their photos before their ceremony and reception at Brix Restaurant. It was so easy to photograph Michelle and Nolan, and here are some of our favorites!

Enjoy:)

We met Michelle at her and Nolan’s apartment, and they had a great little solarium with amazing light shining through.  Michelle looks so great here! We planned a little staged “first meet” in the lobby of their apartment.  This is where they first met… like ever, in the elevator!  Love it!The lobby was so chic that we started off right then and there for creatives!Then onward we went through Yaletown and it’s brick buildings.  Played with angles on this structure by the sea wall….If you can’t quite tell, they’re making faces at each other.  Kids at heart!Beautiful at the Roundhouse!We can’t get over how awesome Brix is as a venue.  Dan and I started to seriously think about switching our venue for our wedding, but our guest list is just too big…so we sorta lived vicariously through Michelle and Nolan’s wedding…!   We lit some shots to add a bit of drama for their ceremony entrance…that brick corridor is wicked!  We loved how they walked in together, arm in arm!Cocktail time! After a delicious dinner, a few speeches were made.  Michelle and her brother listening to some some of them!First dance!It was an awesome day in the sun in Yaletown celebrating Michelle and Nolan’s vows to each other.  A simple and intimate wedding it was, and it was perfect.

We wish you guys the best!

Cheers,

K&D

| Van & Eric | Married | 07.31.10 |

By the time I arrived at Van parents house on the morning of July 31st, she was already dressed in her tradition Vietnamese garments.  Most of her bridesmaids were just about ready as well, while out of town family members started to pour into the house and get ready too.  A beautiful and emotional Vietnamese ceremony took place, followed by lunch and getting ready for their wedding ceremony at the Celebration Pavilion at Queen Elizabeth.  The day went by so quickly, it all seems like a blur!  We stuck around Q.E. for some fun creatives, and then made our way to Westwood Plateau for their ceremony.

Along with an awesome entrance to the reception, there were slide shows and a Vietnamese Band performing throughout the night.

We had a wicked time with Van and Eric, they’re a really fun couple who’ll do just about anything!  Splashing around in a fountain…lying down on a golf course with golf balls all around them…it was just good old fun hanging out with them and their wedding party.

Some favs of the day:

Van’s mom and dad drinking tea, similar to Chinese tea ceremonies.  Except tea wasn’t made, for reasons we don’t know….so they substituted it with Hennessey!  Sweeeet….After the tea ceremony, it came time for family members to give gifts to the couple. Van’s mother started it by giving Van a necklace.  Pink pink pink!  And BRIGHT pink!  The original dresses were a much lighter pink, though a few weeks before the wedding, there was a bit of a bridesmaid dress nightmare, and long story short, all the girls had to find new dresses!  Talk about stress!  Fortunately, dresses were found, it matched the color theme, and all was good!  Turned out perfectly!  Van had charm bracelets and unique necklaces for all her bridesmaids.  So sweet! We were told that at the rehearsal a few nights prior, Van and Eric barely kissed, and when we asked her earlier in the morning if they would kiss at their ceremony, she said, “Probably not…that’s not us”.  BUT!  We were all surprised that the DID kiss, and even went for the DIP KISS! It was a pretty hot afternoon, so going for a dip in the fountain right outside the Pavilion was a nice idea…Kat on the left, Dan on the right…thanks to our super assistant Julian lighting, so that we could both shoot!  Van had a hard time finding her wedding dress and tried on just about everything!  Almost giving up, her mom asked her to try on this dress, and it was an instant decision.  Say yes to the dress!  What a gorgeous dress, definitely my favorite so far this summer!! LOVE love love this one that Dan shot!Dan had a great concept at the golf course at Westwood Plateau…but he wasn’t tall enough!  So I hopped onto his shoulders (with a skirt on!!) and shot…The late afternoon/early evening had nice thick clouds in the sky, but the sun was still there, and gives this shot a nice warm feel…Quickly before the reception started, Dan and Julian shot this image above.  Props to DQ Studios for the inspiration!Cherry blossoms!  The hall was beautifully decorated with lots of PINK!Many great speeches throughout the night…It was so awesome to see Eric’s grandmother gettin’ jiggy wit it!  She was so cute!

What a pleasure it was hangout with Van and Eric and their friends and families.  It was awesome to see these two families come together in celebration of Van and Eric’s wedding.

Cheers everyone,

| Kaitlyn & Bryce | Engaged |

Dan and I were so excited to see Kaitlyn and Bryce again since we last saw them earlier this year.  Our initial meeting was one of those where we all just hit it off instantly.

Kaitlyn and Bryce knew exactly where they wanted their engagement session at:  Buntzen Lake in Anmore!  They go to this lake every summer with their friends, blow up a little dingy, load the guys up, and tie a blow up mattress at the end of the dingy for the girls to sun tan on…sigh…sounds so relaxing!

Dan had been to Buntzen Lake before as a kid with his dad and brothers, so it was a nice trip down memory lane for him.  It was my first time up there, and I can’t wait to start heading there more often to enjoy the cold water and the hot sunshine.

We got together at 9am on a beautiful Saturday morning, to beat the crazy rush.  Even at 9am there were tons of people staking their claim of picnic benches and setting up bbqs for the day.  We managed to still get some photos without too many people in the background.

We had a great time hanging out with Kaitlyn and Bryce, they’re such an awesome couple and we can’t wait to shoot their wedding this October!

Some favs of the day!!

Buntzen Lake has some beautiful trails to go hiking, and we found some nice shaded areas in the trails.  Love this close up of Kaitlyn!

Bright sunny day!  As you can see…lots of people around in the morning!  Love this pose!  Kaitlyn and Bryce didn’t need much coaching…they’re naturals!Kaitlyn and Bryce are so fun at heart!They both have such great smiles! Nice bling!After a quick outfit change, we shot around this field, and then headed for the water for some fun!One of my favorites!Dan had his camera dangerously close to the water!  And for this shot…well…Dan will do what it takes to get the shot!  Shirt off, keys and wallet on land….and in he went, neck deep, camera in air, it was hilarious!  Kaitlyn and Bryce we awesome troopers and got wet as well, even though it was a bit cold!  Thanks for lending us your sandals too!  Moving on to shallower waters…haha! After the session, Dan and I stayed behind a bit to shoot a few details and to soak up a bit of sun, mainly to dry off Dan’s wet shorts!  We had an amazing time with Kaitlyn and Bryce, Their fun and adventurous nature and friendliness made it so easy to photograph them.  It really didn’t feel like “work”, it was more like hanging out with awesome friends and a camera at a beautiful lake, and goofing around!  We can’t wait for their wedding day!

Check out their slide show below!

Till next time!
