Tessa & Brad :: Parkside Hotel

I absolutely love this time of year, looking through all the past season’s work and reliving all the beauty… Today I’m gushing over this bride’s beautiful Truvelle dress and the soft, modern, west coast vibes throughout the whole wedding. Tessa was one of the first brides who reached out to me for the 2016 season and is definitely one of the sweetest I’ve ever met.      Travelling from Alberta to the bride’s hometown here in Victoria – Tessa & Brad decided to host a beautiful intimate wedding with their closest family & friends. Stealing a few moments to themselves before the ceremony, they chose to have a first …

Tuscany Inspiration :: Vale & Vine

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 …
