Devon & Darin: Whonnock Lake Wedding

I’m so excited to share Devon and Darin’s wedding at Whonnock Lake from last weekend. The day started off at bed and breakfast home in Maple Ridge on a beautiful country property with an old barn that I loved using for some photos. As soon as Devon told me about her wedding, I knew we shared very similar tastes, she really outdid herself on the details. Darin’s reaction during their first look… well, I’m not even going to describe it. I will never forget it and how filled with tears he was before Devon was even there. I was really touched!

You won’t see any cameras in front of the guests faces for the ceremony as they held an “unplugged ceremony” so their guests could be present with them in the moment and focus on the emotions of the ceremony. I love this and highly encourage it – I did it at my own wedding as well. It is so nice to see proud, smiling faces of your loved ones in your photos rather than an bunch of chunky SLRs, iPhones or you never know.. iPads ;)

When Devon brought out here ukulele to sing her wedding vows to Darin, no tears could be held back. I’m so honoured to have photographed your wedding day – thank you both so much!

[…] out that I have photographed them in nearly every season now with a spring engagement session, summer wedding and it may have been the end of August, but it sure looks like fall around here! Excited for these […]

Oh gosh, soooo pretty! Love the whole thing & the first look is ace!

Gorgeous! I really love this venue!

Geeez. This is great work. You have forever captured the emotions of the day for this lucky couple.

Stunning! beautiful colours and atmosphere.

You’ve done a brilliant job capturing this wedding. I love the constant style in the framing and editing. Great job.

So beautiful…and she played for him…gah!! I love it!

Amazing! Their first look was great with all the groom’s emotion. And love that the bride played the uke at her wedding.

Thanks for sharing your friends wedding album. What a beautiful day at the lake reminded me of yours. The lucky couple looked overjoyed and very happy nice to see a grown man cry and a beautiful Bride get her best day ever. Wonderful happiness always to you all. Great photos to keep for a lifetime.

Love that shot on the dock!

I love this whole wedding. Seriously gorgeous photos.

Wow, such a great first look. I love how you captured the emotions!!

Loving the portraits in the woods especially!


That is such a great first look! :)

Love this wedding. And Devon looks so stunning! Beautifully captured day.

Oh my gosh, your bridals! Seriously gorgeous!
