Fox Glove :: Alix Goolden Hall

Last Saturday, I was asked to be a part of a very special event in our city. A ‘Love-In’. According to the ladies from Fox Glove, I wasn’t the only one who was a little in the dark of what exactly a ‘Love-In’ is. So I Googled it, as we do. Wikipedia:: A ‘Love-In’ is a peaceful public gathering focused on meditation, love and music… (There’s a little more to this, but we will keep it PG for the Blog). My friend Chelsea who you may know as the talent force behind Paperheart Films, is also one third of the fabulous ladies that are ‘Fox …

Romantic Orchard Wedding :: Weddingbells.ca

If ever there were a more picturesque location on Vancouver Island for a spring blossom editorial shoot than Sea Cider Farm & Ciderhouse – these images would definitely beg to differ! In late spring when all the apple blossoms are in full force, it’s one of the most magical places around! Kim Kalyn Photography was in touch earlier in the year to discuss her vision of a wedding editorial gushing of soft ‘pretty-ness’ and all the wonderment that an apple orchard holds in it’s early season glory.  Details… Details… Quite possibly my favourite part of editorials are the incredible close-ups of all …
