BEACH

Lindsei + James

 

Lindsei and James chose the Marquis Resort in Los Cabos, Mexico to tie the knot. It was only next door where James had proposed to Lindsei on a previous vacation.
After having spent a couple days becoming familiar with the resort, dining with Lindsei and James closest friends and family and taking in some sunshine, their wedding day arrived. I awoke to the sound of the ocean waves from my balcony. Every morning a tiny bread door at the entrance of my hotel room delivered a basket of freshly baked rolls. This day, along with the basket was a surprise letter to me from the bride and groom. They had remained discreet about the locations of events up until the morning of when they surprised every guest with a spontaneous itinerary and personalized letter.
This wedding was special in many ways; The intimacy of the guest list had allowed opportunity for myself to form a very strong bond with everyone. A bond that I know many photographers strive to have with their couples, I am thankful to have with Lindsei and James. The resort was so peaceful and thoughtfully detailed, the staff was friendly and outgoing. The beach was clean, quiet and there were tall rocks not too far away that we ventured out to. As an overall experience, I can’t thank Lindsei and James enough for including me in this sacred chapter.

GIANNA, PORTRAIT SESSION 

Creative portrait sessions are my favourite to photograph because its a very intimate session usually involving only the model and myself or a small team including the hair and makeup artists or fashion designers who are collaborating all of their expertise into something magical. In this case, Gianna trusted me to take complete creative control of this session. It was just her and I wandering on location and experimenting with various elements. 
Working with Gianna is a dream. She has amazing confidence and determination that excels her when it comes to pursuing something she is passionate about. I had a fantastic time photographing her.

Engagement Session

White shells and large rocks crunched beneath our feet as we walked along the shore of peninsula. The tide was low that day, which allowed us to have space to run and around. Melissa's hair is dream to win around, as she learned quickly that was my objective in a lot of the motion, haha.

Alpine Northwest

This photoshoot best portrays the many sensations I experienced during my time on the shore at a beautiful campground on the Olympic Peninsula. The wind through my hair, sunsets over the riptide and the many other moments that made me feel like a mermaid. 
This day was wonderful. I spent the day soaking in sunshine and information from a few of my favourite photographers/#girlboss'. The day continued on with photoshoots of friends I had become so close to in my week out at the Washington Coast. We ended the evening partying within a log cabin by the ocean that had french-windows all around to let in the moonlight in. We danced to some cheesy, preteen-dance throwbacks and drank ciders. Us girls were crazzaaayyyy!
After a bonfire, we decided to call it a night. That was when I saw the moon brighter than I had ever witnessed, reflecting light over the ocean as a ray of light. I didn't want to be anywhere else but right in that moment.
That was my last night at this beautiful camp :)
