Pete and Christine's Wedding at Brix & Mortar in Yaletown - Seconding for John Bello

If it isn't already apparent in my blog posts, I truly enjoy photographing at Brix and Mortar in Yaletown. It's a nice and small and intimate space with a unique ceremony space but the people there are also really cool. 

As per usual, I'll let the photographs and the little bits of commentary do the narrating of this wedding. Just a quick note: That amazing red British car was an awesome sight to see.

Thanks to John Bello Photography for taking me on as a second shooter for this one.

 While moments like these can be posed, I love creating them in the midst of the wedding day. It's really tough as everything has to line up just right... but when it does, it becomes something amazing.

Welid and Savannah's Backyard Wedding - Seconding for Stefanie Cepeda

Welid and Savannah's wedding was one of the first backyard weddings I had photographed. While I thoroughly enjoy the atmosphere and the revelry of larger weddings, I also love the intimacy that comes with small weddings as well. It was a bright sunny day and lended itself to a great day followed by a reception in a hall in the evening.

Photographs taken while seconding for Stefanie Cepeda.

 Candid moments like these aren't taken at random. I'm constantly on the lookout for these moments as they happen!

 I can't recall why this chair was needed? Probably for a place to sit while the couple signs the wedding papers.

 I loved how this wedding was so very small but very intimate and personal. It took place in a backyard! That's Stefanie Cepeda in the background with the camera.

Michael and Shannon Vancouver Wedding at Brookhouse and Victoria Chinese Restaurant - Seconding for Jody Wiger

As per before, I won't say much in the ways of an introduction. I do think that the images speak for themselves (yes, including the mirror selfie with the bride's dress...). Michael and Shannon were married at Brockhouse in Vancouver followed by a reception at Victoria Chinese Restaurant. The night capped off with a dance rendition of "I Had The Time Of My Life" and it was kind of awesome. OK enough words. Photographs below :)

Thanks to Jody Wiger for the opportunity to second shoot.

 That time I ran around with the bride's dress... yes, I was looking for a place to hang it for primary photog Jody Wiger.

Jonathan and Clara's Wedding at Stanley Park - Seconding for Stefanie Cepeda

I really don't have any words for this wedding so I will let the photographs tell the story.

 That moment when the Father gives his bride away. I'm usually in the front but this time I took the back angle.

Brian and Alaina's Wedding at Grouse Mountain - Seconding for John Bello

Rain or snow definitely don't step a wedding day. This wedding from 2016 took place at first in Vancouver and then later on in Grouse Mountain. 

What a day it was! Blistering snow made for an interesting and adventurous day but it ended up being an amazing wedding for Brian and Alaina.

Thanks to John Bello as we always for taking me on a second shooter!
