2018 Bridal Season

Updated: Feb 27

Thats a wrap

Last weekend we completed out last wedding for the 2018 season. Its hard to believe this was my ninth wedding season. Next year we plan to tackle with more weddings as we have two mobile traveling teams. We are fortunate to go to many unique venues around the island and work with talented creatives from Vancouver Island and beyond.

First up, an image from the ever so talented @myrtleandmossphotography taken at the Maple Bay Manor.

Every year we meet new vendors and new talented people enter the wedding industry. Its an evolving market that I am happy to be apart of.

One photographer that I met this year that isn't new to the industry but his energy was just SO good. His name is Shane and he is the man behind the lense of @deringerphotography

My one piece of advice when your picking a photographer is to meet them in person and get a sense for the vibe and energy. Its one thing to be a great photographer but a whole other thing to give off a fun and loving vibe on one of the most important days of your life.
