Gastown Wedding Photographer

Melissa + Andrew


Melissa and Andrew’s wedding last month at The Diamond in Gastown was nothing short of special. Beautifully designed, small and intimate, they were surrounded by their nearest and dearest. I had a great time shooting it and a big thanks goes to to Stephanie and her team from Sweetheart Events for making the day look so beautiful and run so smoothly.

A night jamming in Fortune listening to this amazing Vancouver based band. The Star Captains.

Check them out on bandcamp here:

Soul, funk, hip hop .. awesomeness.

A great excuse for me to test out the Nikon D750 in really low light. A lot of these photos are shot at ISO 12800 at f/1.8 with the 35mm f/1.8.

Myanmar // Documentary Street Photographer

This year, I took a month to travel around SE Asia. 2 weeks in Laos and Thailand followed by an epic 2 weeks in Myanmar with 3 friends / brothers Kristian Leven, Ross Harvey and Matt Tyler. The trip was organised by Kristian and when he asked me if I was interested in going to Myanmar (Burma), there was no way I was going to say no!

Myanmar Documentary Portrait Photographer

Over the last few days, I’ve been reflecting on what has been a truly incredible 4 weeks in SE Asia. The things I experienced and learnt will never be forgotten. The world is an amazing and beautiful place.

Here’s one frame from Kalaw in Myanmar. I stumbled upon a temple and inside was able to sit with some of the novice monks while they studied that morning.

More coming soon..

In other news, my wedding season kicks off this Sunday and I can’t wait for what awesomeness 2015 is going to bring.

Wedding Photographer Vancouver

My 2014

Wedding Photographer Vancouver

My 4th year as a full time wedding photographer, and my second year as one based in Vancouver, was a great one. I love shooting in Vancouver and this year I was able to explore more of British Columbia, documenting weddings in Kelowna, Revelstoke, Penticton and Naramata Bench, as well as shooting destination weddings in the UK as well as Cuba and Italy. I was also invited to be part of a street photographers collective, The 8 Street and we went to Istanbul, Turkey for a few days too. Lots of travel and adventure. Epic.

This blog post was many hours in the making. It’s always tough to select images that define a year but I’m stoked with my selection and hope you enjoy it too.

Big thanks to each couple for choosing me to capture their days and to do what I love so much. A massive thanks also to Ed Peers, Andy Gaines, Taryn Baxter, Jakob Granqvist who I had the pleasure of joining at some weddings this year.

2015 is set to be a great one, and I can’t wait to get started.

But for now, here is my 2014.
