Document You // Katie & Andy

During Document You sessions, good things happen when we get invited into the lives of couples, and share a story of what it is they do. Katie and Andy have a son and spending time outdoors with him on Katie's parents farm is an awesome day in their world. Add walking their dog along the nearby dyke into the mix, and bam - this is their family in its essence. So photographing them at the farm on Westham Island, which is also where they will get married later this year, is as real as it gets.

Barn Wedding Vancouver // Meg & Adam

Couple's often ask us about general ideas and thoughts for their weddings. And our answer is pretty much always the same. We're definitely no experts on weddings per se, but we've been to a few by now, and there's one thing we've picked up on: The more real you keep it, the better. Don't put in a big effort just to be someone you're not for a day.

West Vancouver Wedding // Jenny & Joel

Wedding cliches stretch far and wide, and you really notice this at the reception speeches. Ever heard the "joke" where whoever is giving the speech has the groom put his hand atop the brides on the table and says something along the lines of "and that's the last time you'll have the upper hand in this relationship"? This little skit must have a high ranking on Google for "wedding speech jokes". Another one is when the newly-weds have been together for a very long time. The whole "it's about time", "what took you so long", "'bout time you made it official" hullaballoo is an easy angle for cracking a few jokes. We've heard it at quite a few weddings by now. But not at Jenny and Joel's.
