Victoria | BC

It’s hard to go wrong with Vancouver Island.  Even though it’s a little touristy, and everything closes by 5pm (seriously?!) I always love Victoria.  I especially love when I’m there with Jill.  I especially love it when Jill recommends awesome Tapas Bars.  So awesome that I didn’t take any pictures from that place because we were too busy eating.  Bacon wrapped almond stuffed dates with blue cheese… omg.

I’ve been shooting for Airbnb for a couple of years now, but this was the first time I’ve actually booked a place to stay through the site.  It’s really the first time it made any sense for me to book through there.  The price was way better than any hotel, location was perfect and our host was wonderful.  If you haven’t used Airbnb before, check it out.  Also – if you sign up through that referral link, you’ll get a USD25 voucher for your first booking…. Woot!

I’m still looking for a couple to come with me to Bali in September for a free pre-wedding shoot.  Drop me a message for the details if you’re interested!

Joan and Sunil’s Solemnization

Joan and Sunil’s was my third Canadian wedding in a row…. even in Singapore.  I’m still not sure how that worked out. Half of the guests were skyped into the ceremony.  I should start doing that, considering how many of my friends’ weddings I seem to miss.

We didn’t have time to do any proper couple’s shots, so I get to do a whole session with just the two of them later on <3

Pender Island | BC

I’m predisposed to loving anywhere that involves taking a ferry to get to.  Pender Island involved two.  Ferry biases aside, Pender is perfect.  Not exactly the white sandy beaches and diving that I normally associate with beach time, but nothing beats that perfect ocean smell of the pacific.  Lots of wildflowers, rocky cliffs dropping into the sea, ferries sailing a few times an hour and kayaking with my mama.  Big thanks to our host and guide, Ann, for having us!

Inguna Grundmane - VERY BEAUTIFUL!

Laura & David | Vancouver Wedding

Finally finished processing the last of my Canada shoots.  Oddly enough, I shot another Canadian wedding last week back here in Singapore.  No complaints.  Canadian weddings are always fun.  So are weddings with lots of dancing.  The two seem to go hand-in-hand.

Sourabh & Supriya | Sentosa Maternity Shoot

After a certain incident of losing a lens to the ocean a few years back, I’ve becoming pretty paranoid when taking my camera gear anywhere near salt water, but the day I met Sourabh and Supriya for their maternity shoot was insanely hot.  We were at the beach, and the water looked too tempting, so we all got right in there.  Sometimes you’ve just got to risk it all.  I’m pretty glad we did.
