Kim and Willy were married on New Year’s Eve. (My third New Year’s Eve wedding in a row). What an amazing day! I arrived in the morning as Kim was getting ready and the party didn’t end until after midnight. At the house there were fun and games between the girls and guys.  The guys were made to wear high heels and were rated on their strut. Then they were made to eat something that neither I nor they were quite sure what it was. They were great sports about it all and everyone was laughing and having a good time.

Kim looked absolutely stunning as a bride should. Her dress was amazing… actually all of her dresses (she changed several times throughout the day). After the wedding ceremony at Van Dusen Gardens we headed to Queen Elizabeth Park for photos. With a winter wedding the sun goes down early and all their photos were taken after sunset. (For any photographers reading this post – some of the outdoor images were taken with a shutter speed as slow as 1/15 of a second to allow the ambient light from the sky in). We went back to Van Dusen Gardens to take advantage of the Festival of Lights for photos too. Then off to the reception!

The reception (or shall I say party) was held at Fraser Court Restaurant in Vancouver. There were dragon dancers, confetti, cupcakes, Burger King Served close to midnight (as this was what they were eating when Willy proposed). So much fun and too much to mention here. I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves.

Enjoy!

It feels like I’ve known Bobbie and Scott pretty close to forever now. They booked me nearly two years in advance for their special day. They were married on December 21, 2012… the end of the Myan calendar and possibly the end of time. Thank goodness we all lived and the world continues to turn! Their wedding took place at they Hycroft Mansion which is on of the most beautiful and historic venues I’ve photographed in. The day was filled with love, laughter and tears of joy. Bobbie is a lucky girl to have more than one Dad, so each of them walked her part way down the aisle.

Bobbie LOVES surprises. When we photographed their engagement photos she surprised Scott by renting a Dodge Charger for the shoot! Here’s a link to those pics: http://lindamccaguephotography.com/?p=1665. Nothing could stop them from including more surprises on the wedding day. They had gifts made for each other too. Scott had a personalized book made for Bobbie that was absolutely the cutest and Bobbie had a custom 6 string guitar made for Scott! Wow!! It was stunning. The guests also loved that Santa arrived early for Christmas and was able to find some time to share in their wedding.

A huge congratulations to you both. May your new life together be filled with love until the actual end of time.

Joanna and Andrew were recently married. Their wedding photos were posted on my blog and Facebook page. I was so excited for their Day After session (which actually took place about a month after the wedding). Day after sessions are so much fun as they allow for more time and creativity than on the wedding day. The wedding day is often rushed with trying to keep to a schedule and making sure we’re back for the reception on time. A day after session is a perfect accompaniment to your wedding photos and it’s fun to get to wear your dress again! They are perfect for the faint at heart as the dress stays dry and clean (unlike a Trash the Dress Sessions).

The stunning bouquet is by Celsia Florist. Their work is amazing everytime.

Please enjoy the photos and consider adding a creative session to your 2013 wedding photography booking.

Laura and James were married in mid September. It was a beautiful day full of love shared with friends and family. They were married at Immaculate Conception Parish in North Delta, pictures followed at Queen Elizabeth Park and their lovely reception was at the Riverway Golf Course.
