The Old Farm House

I'm so excited about this image that I have to post it before the others - I just love it.  It's giving me shivers.  

Derek & Jillian - July 10, 2010

This old farm house is on Derek's family farm yard south of Swift Current.  

Yes, those are pockets in Jillian's dress.  Sweet.  

And yes, the wind actually made her veil do that.  

(btw,there's always lots of wind in the southwest, so it's really only exciting for me after all the times I've tried to fake that movement in BC!)

And there's so many more to post... stay tuned...

Jillian & Derek - July 10, 2010

I love that I'm able to travel to Saskatchewan to photograph a wedding every year - sometimes twice! 
This summer I was the lucky lady photographing Derek & Jillian in Swift Current.  They are high school sweethearts and really, they are SUCH sweethearts.  They made my job so easy!  

I love this anticipation and excitement (and maybe a few nerves) while they are getting ready for the ceremony, and then the pure joy (and a little relief) when they are officially married!  

The groom made this box for the rings!

Interactive sermon...

Happy First Anniversary Adam & Leni!

A year ago today I was enjoying the summer sunset in Lang Bay on the Sunshine Coast at Adam & Leni's wedding.  

I hope your first year has been as fabulous as that day!

Sunset on the Prairie

I love being back on the Prairies, even though I love being at the ocean.  

It's this Big Sky, the rolling hills, the fields and the golden light that lasts just that bit longer...

Othello Tunnels

Every once in a while I like to jump in a car, follow my friends and end up at... Cooper's Foods in Hope.  Well, yes, to get sausages for BBQ, and on to the Othello Tunnels in Coquihalla Canyon Provincial Park.  

These tunnels were built in the early 1900s to avoid going around 300 foot deep canyon.  Instead, engineer Andrew McCullough (& his helpers) went right through it.  It was the most expensive mile of the Railroad.  

Really, if you're on Highway 5 near Hope there's no good excuse to not stop, after all Rambo: First Blood was filmed there.  And it's right off the Highway.
And it's really cool.
