We loved all the effort that this couple put into making this wedding such a lovely, warm wedding! Some of my favorite touches... Opa's belt (look at Megs all dressed up...), beautiful family antiques, Opa-made birdhouses at the reception, and lights in the trees. Thanks for letting us be a part of your amazing day Luke and Megs. Blessings on you both!

Horch Family Session https://www.loreleiphotography.com/blog/2016/11/horch-family-session So happy to be able to photograph this fun family... especially because of the family connection. Can anyone spot my brother?? He's so blessed to have such lovely inlaws! Gardiner Park was a great location with lots for the kids to see and do. Thanks Horch family!

And good job little ones.... you did great!

Mitchell and Kaden Grad https://www.loreleiphotography.com/blog/2016/8/mitchell-and-kaden-grad So... this was fun! Mitchell is my cousin and Kaden is his good friend and future university roommate. According to MEI tradition, grad requires a red carpet entry with a "please be creative" requirement. I'm guessing these guys got a LOT of laughs!!

It's been such a privilege witnessing Mitchell growing up and being able to see him mature in his faith and love for the Lord. He's had his struggles with his knee (hence the photo at the end) but no matter what the circumstances, with God's strength, he was able to trust in the Lord and be so gracious with the disappointments that he endured. So proud of you Mitchell and thankful for your family and your quiet, humble spirit!

Kaden I don't know you as well but I surely know you have chosen an excellent friend! Praying for you both in this next stage of life!

Foster's Part 2 and Extended Version! {Mission Family Photography} https://www.loreleiphotography.com/blog/2016/8/fosters-part-2-and-extended-version-mission-family-photography It was certainly a pleasure to meet the complete Foster family. In my previous post you met one branch of this family and now.... here's the full and extended version!

We were so pleased to be able to create some photographs for this family before a move separated them. Never underestimate the importance of a good family photo. They are the building blocks of family memories and the effort is worth it!!

Foster Family https://www.loreleiphotography.com/blog/2016/8/foster-family Ever wondered what a mini session looks like? Here is a family session from one of our minis. 30 minutes of photography is often enough to capture all that you need to remember your family as they are now!

We know this family from school and our girls have become good friends so it was a privilege to capture their immediate family and also their extended family. But for now.... here are the Foster's! 

Thanks Foster's! Extended family is coming up next.....

Luke and Emily's Engagement https://www.loreleiphotography.com/blog/2016/7/luke-and-emilys-engagement It's a rainy, cold day here in BC but I'm smiling and enjoying the photos of these two lovely people. This night was perfect... the light, the fluff in the air (what is that stuff called anyway?)..... It was the perfect night for both natural and off camera light! My favorite! Even more than the technical photo geek stuff we loved getting to know Luke and Emily a little bit better! It's always encouraging to chat with an engaged couple that know how they are different and also complementaryand then watch them take care of each other. Really looking forward to this September wedding!

Jackie and Mario's wedding was a wet, windy west coast adventure but it was such an incredible day as family and friends all pitched in to make it so memorable. Jackie has a love for Fluevog shoes.... 

And they showed up again! Love this little guy and all his expressions. I even got a cuddle at the end!

Fun Family Session! {Abbotsford Lifestyle Photography} https://www.loreleiphotography.com/blog/2016/6/fun-family-session Thanks to all of you for your patience. I've been struggling with a new blog import/format/everything and this is my first try...  let me know if something is really weird on your computer please!!

What a fun, lively session this was! I was so pleased when Kacey contacted me to use a session that they had purchased at an auction to raise money for the Casa De Luz Children's Center in Mexico. She wanted photos for her Mom for Mother's Day and we had a hilarious time wrangling these cute little cousins! I think you'll get a good idea of their love for each other and their young rambunctiousness (is that a word??)...... 

Thank to Kacey for inviting me into your almost completed reno and being brave enough to take photos!

Introducing my new niece! {Mission Newborn Photography} https://www.loreleiphotography.com/blog/2016/3/Introducing-my-new-niece-Mission-Newborn-Photography Ok… I admit it. I’m totally biased but this little one is so delicious. As if I wouldn’t already be completely smitten, she had to go and be the perfect baby model. Twist, turn, flip… she slept through it all. Amazing. 

My brother and sister in law were also brave enough to let me have a crack at a lifestyle session and I loved it. So easy and natural and we even managed to corral my other beautiful, though somewhat more active and determined, niece into some adorable shots. 

So blessed and so happy to share these with you!

It was her and Anthony’s dream to go back to the beginning of their marriage and celebrate the changes, the good experiences, the challenges overcome, and the fact that they are still very much in love.

Weddings are truly wonderful, to be able to witness the start of a journey, to see the hopes and dreams and all of the emotion that accompanies a life-long covenant. A vow renewal is all of this and so much more. It’s looking at a couple and realizing that those butterflies and excitement are guided by a real KNOWING of each other. Knowing the challenges of marriage and children and living life together and yet choosing this day again.

Romance and commitment.

And how much more special when this bride was a special “foster” daughter to my grandmother. An extra, lovely auntie to me!

PS. See if you can spot the original wedding photo!

Andrew and Linda’s Wedding https://www.loreleiphotography.com/blog/2015/7/Andrew-and-Linda-s-Wedding It was an incredible April day with an amazing location and such fun people. Family and friends rallied to support the couple and brought the day to perfection. There were so many special, personal touches that made this wedding unique and unforgettable.

What a privilege to photograph Andrew and Linda’s wedding. Linda and I worked together in ICU at Children’s Hospital and developed a relationship around our work, our cameras and our faith! I remember one particular conversation when Linda told me she had photographed weddings in the past. I was in awe and thought….. I’ll NEVER do that…..:)

Thank you so much for letting us be a part of this once in a lifetime day. We feel so honored to have witnessed your faith-filled vows and to be there at the start of this, your new adventure.

Kieran and Sarah Got Married!! {Mission Wedding Photography} https://www.loreleiphotography.com/blog/2015/4/Kieran-and-Sarah-Got-Married-Mission-Wedding-Photography Weddings are emotional. Family, friends… the couple. I often walk away and wonder if our photographs can actually capture each moment in a way that will inscribe these memories for a lifetime.

Kieran and Sarah’s wedding was so calm and loving and meaningful. It really was the kind of day that takes some time to absorb, the kind of day I hope they can look back on and see it as a beautiful starting point for a lifetime. From the vows, to the prayers, to the charge by our pastor, each part of the ceremony declared their love for Christ and their dependance on Him to strengthen and sustain their new marriage.

So exciting and worth celebrating!

And they did celebrate! From the spontaneous serenade in the park (from the groomsman), to their little sister getting busted at the reception (check out the photos!), to the wild musical chairs game courtesy of the wedding party and a lively dance …. it was a fun, full day.

Sid & Katy and GIRLS!!!! {Mission Family Photography} https://www.loreleiphotography.com/blog/2014/12/Sid-Katy-and-GIRLS-Mission-Family-Photography Merry Christmas to each and everyone of you. To those who have trusted me with your memories this year…. thank you. I know these moments are precious and I feel honored to be chosen to capture them. If you’re stopping by for a look, thank you! The internet is a busy place and I appreciate you checking out my work.

It is always so lovely to spend time with this precious family and their girls. Not only have I had the privilege of photographing them more than a few times, I can also call them friends!

Growing girls mean ACTION!! I think Baby E would have rather taken her tutu and filled it with gravel and dirt and whatever else happened to be within reach! We managed to keep her reasonably contained but I think the best shots came when we let her roam free (take a look for the “less than impressed” big sister). C and Big E are VERY patient big sisters…. at least from what I saw😉

Stay tuned for Baby E’s Cake Smash… probably after the holidays! Merry Christmas all!

Maternity sessions are extra fun with a toddler and Sir J kept us busy and entertained for sure. My daughter came along for toddler support and had a blast chasing this little guy all over! Not sure he knows what heading his way but he’s sure to be a spunky older bro!! Thanks for a great morning Suman and Preet. Looking forward to meeting your new little one! (PS.

As promised, I’m trying to catch up on my neglected blogs posts! Susie and I work together at Abbotsford Hospital and we all had a fun and active session running after their beautiful boys!! Susie is a Child Life Specialist which means she’s a nurses’ best friend (and the kids…. and the parents’…..) when it comes to helping our small patients through some of the scary things that happen in the hospital. So she came prepared! We blew bubbles, ran, jumped, yelled a little bit, had an Ultimate Frisbee demonstration by young sir and generally had an “exhaustedly” good time! The last photo pretty much sums it up….:)

It is always a privilege to be involved in a wedding. We are there from first thing in the morning, capturing all the excitement to the dance when it’s all about friends and family and enjoying the moment! I could not include all of the wonderful moments in this wedding but I hope these photos will tell a little of Tim and Sharissa’s day. Many laughs (Sharissa’s vows), singing groomsman, a quick change of photo venue due to a bit of rain (thank you to Sharissa’s grandparents for use of their wonderful property…. again!), a few tears due to a surprise call from a friend in Africa (Vanessa saved the make-up day!), incredible hair (of course!) and so many lovely and supportive family and friends encouraging these two as they start their life together.

May the Lord bless you both in your new marriage, keeping you dependant on Him for everything as you seek to honor and glorify Him!

I just loved this little wee girl! Her hair! Her lips and those CHEEKS!! She is a stunner. And with a personality to match. No way was she going to give up those good looks for free. So… we danced and made funny noises and peekaboo-ed ourselves crazy. Her mama and I agreed… no workout necessary after this session.

It’s been a LONG time since my last post so I’m hoping to do some catch up in the next few months.

This little guy just about got photographed twice. His Mom contacted me for a session and so did her friends. I was happy to let this little coincidence play out so Kelly could get a thoughtful shower present from her friends… a session with me!!:)

Baby J made me feel like a baby whisperer. Keep him warm and comfy and he was happy to be turned, tucked, flipped and rearranged. Such a sweetie.

Enjoy these photos, Matt and Kelly! Congratulations on your handsome wee man!

Paul and Heather Expecting {White Rock Maternity Photography} https://www.loreleiphotography.com/blog/2014/3/Paul-and-Heather-Expecting-White-Rock-Maternity-Photography Welcome to the wild weather of the wet (?) coast! Despite Heather and I planning thoroughly… we booked two dates… and feeling like we were prepared for all eventualities… except for blizzards… the weather almost got us. However, being the tough, get-er-done women that we are, we dragged our men out into the weather and got-er-done!! (OKAY… Paul and Orlando get credit too… Paul for doing this shoot with sopping sneaker feet and Orlando for holding on to a freezing metal pole with no gloves… real men I say!!)

And it was crazy! Snow everywhere, blowing, swirling, take your breath away cold but we all rocked it anyway. It was quick, with a location change in the middle (oh how I love warm cars), but we got some stellar shots. Thanks for hanging in there guys. 

This session was extra special for me. For those of you who are not aware, Paul is my brother and it is just so completely amazing to see him so happy with his wife. Heather, we love you so much!! We are over the moon excited for this new arrival.

Tim and Sharissa Engaged! | Mission Engagement Photography | https://www.loreleiphotography.com/blog/2014/2/Tim-and-Sharissa-Engaged-Mission-Engagement-Photography Okay… so this.. was… fun..

 Two beautiful people (yes.. you guys are… in and out), two amazing locations (grandparents’ properties), a lovely evening = a successful engagement session. Boats, forests, streams, we had it all!

This session should definitely have a behind the scenes follow up… you should have seen Orlando in the paddle boat with strobe, softbox, and battery…. keeping it all under control. We laughed… a lot!

Can’t wait for your July wedding, Tim and Sharissa! Enjoy the photos!

Barber Family | Mission Family Photography | https://www.loreleiphotography.com/blog/2014/2/Barber-Family-Mission-Family-Photography Happy Family Day!

It’s been a quiet but somewhat perfect day around our home so far… a little sleep in, a little snow, some french toast and a family snuggle on the couch while we cheered on the Canadian Olympic Women’s Hockey team! Lovely. We hope you are enjoying a relaxing family day as well!

To celebrate, I thought I would do a little blogging catch up and post this fun session. I’m sure it’ll make you smile!!

Jackie and Mario’s Wedding | Chilliwack Wedding Photography https://www.loreleiphotography.com/blog/2014/1/Jackie-and-Mario-s-Wedding-Chilliwack-Wedding-Photography What a day, what a DAY!! A good old fashioned, west coast wind and rain storm decided to show up to celebrate Jackie and Mario’s day! From windstorms threatening to blow away wedding tents, to pouring, driving rain the weather was NOT going to cooperate. No matter… this was a day to be enjoyed, a day to glorify God and honor Him in this beautiful beginning. The guests came with smiles and laughter and umbrellas. Fluevogs were flaunted, coffee was enjoyed, clown noses worn! Family and friends worked so hard to make sure the food and the details were perfect. I have never seen an old barn look so beautiful!! And the food….wow! Home cooked goodness!

Jackie and Mario were spectacular! Taking it all in stride, they made the most of a day that certainly did not go as planned. These few photos cannot capture the joy of this day. The encouragement and words of wisdom (and humor) they received from their friends and loved ones were so heartfelt and genuine. We could feel their community surrounding them with prayers and support. Amazing! 

Special thanks to Heddwyn and Walt of Corma farms for providing an amazing venue (all the work you put into the reception!!) and to Carmen Tse Makeup for the amazing hair and makeup.  

Never, ever have I been so grateful that we are not solely natural light photographers. We were able to use our lights and the rain to create some unique portraits for this lovely couple. Enjoy!

Caleb and Julia’s Wedding (Mission Wedding Photography) https://www.loreleiphotography.com/blog/2013/12/Caleb-and-Julia-s-Wedding-Mission-Wedding-Photography Was it really ever this warm?? This time of year I tend to forget!

Caleb and Julia had an amazing warm September wedding. Lots of family, loads of friends and everyone working together to make sure all the details were perfect. From making brunch for the bride, to doing makeup and hair, organizing, decorating and creating an amazing dinner, this wedding was a labor of love for so many people who so obviously love Caleb and Julia and their families!!

Another sweet baby… Aylin! (Mission Baby Photography) https://www.loreleiphotography.com/blog/2013/11/Another-sweet-baby-Aylin-Mission-Baby-Photography It feels like so long ago that Orlando and I welcomed our first daughter into this world! How refreshing and exciting to see our lovely friends adoring their new baby girl. I just love the expressions of these thrilled new parents! And Aylin is just soaking it all up…. eyes wide open, looking around! She was so quiet but SO alert! 

Aylin’s headband is one that Chanae wore as a baby. Love those precious heirlooms.

Stephanie and Jesse Married! {Fraser Valley Wedding Photography} https://www.loreleiphotography.com/blog/2013/10/Stephanie-and-Jesse-Married-Fraser-Valley-Wedding-Photography What a day this was! Amazing, generous friends. Sweet flower girls. Classy groomsman. All pulling together to make this day incredible for Stephanie and Jesse. Add in thoughtful details, a stunning venue, perfect weather and a mutual love for Starbucks …. a day to remember for sure.  I could not possibly include all the memorable moments from this day in one blog post… truly!

Fun fact: Jesse was a groomsman in the first wedding we photographed! But… that’s not why we know them! Stephanie and I met on the job as pediatric nurses. The “Jesse” connection happened after that!

It was an honor to be your photographers, Stephanie and Jesse. Your love for each other and for the Lord was front and center.  Praise be to God for the gift of marriage!

Ryley and Liam’s Wedding {Maple Ridge Wedding Photography} https://www.loreleiphotography.com/blog/2013/8/Ryley-and-Liam-s-Wedding-Maple-Ridge-Wedding-Photography One thing I love about our business is that most of our clients are people that we have direct connections to. We feel so blessed to be able to work with people who are so kind make our “work” so enjoyable.

This wedding was  incredible. There was such a peace about the day. Ryley… you have amazing friends that made such lovely bridesmaids. When they were calling Ryley’s Mom “Mommy ‘M’ ” I knew I was in for a treat!! Their wedding took place on Liam’s family’s property and we could just sense how everyone had worked so hard to make this day memorable, including Liam’s dog Sierra who so dramatically delivered the rings! Their reception was at Bonson Community Center which is becoming one of my absolute favorite wedding venues! A big shout out to Ryley’s brother, Orin who did an amazing job MC’ing and… how about that brownie cake! Wow! Loving constructed by Ryley’s Mom. 

Thanks for inviting us into your special day Ryley and Liam! It has truly been a pleasure getting to know you both. Your vows were beautiful and we were so thrilled to witness two people coming together in Christ. May you continue to lean on Him as you grow and learn together!

Jackie and Mario Engaged – Urban Engagement Session {Fraser Valley Wedding Photography} https://www.loreleiphotography.com/blog/2013/8/Jackie-and-Mario-Engaged-Urban-Engagement-Session-Fraser-Valley-Wedding-Photography I love urban photography sessions!! Buildings, sunlight, railroad tracks, sidewalks, brick buildings, bridges… yikes! I could have gone on and on and on during this session. Nothing like a “new” location to get creative juices flowing. 

Thanks for the laughs Jackie and Mario. Bring on the hats! We can’t wait to shoot your wedding in September. Bring on the meaningful and unique!

As for you dear blog reader, enjoy these photos…. I think you’ll smile. I certainly did. Caution: “Awkward Engagement Photos” being mocked…

Graduation and other musings…. https://www.loreleiphotography.com/blog/2013/7/Graduation-and-other-musings When we moved to Mission I was a little bit hesitant… to say the least. I love big cities. I love the vibe, the busy-ness, the always seeing new people. I love the access to the arts and culture and the ability to walk out your door and find something to do.  However… I have been pleasantly surprised. The pace of life is slower but I’ve found that makes me slow down and appreciate. The physical atmosphere is quieter but I can listen… and hear.

I was really hesitant about what it would do to my young kids… I mean… c’mon… we all know what happens to kids who come from small towns (wink, wink… I grew up in Leduc, AB). Well…  we have found an amazing church that challenges us to KNOW God, with people in it that truly desire to glorify God in all they do. And… we found a wonderful Christian school for our kids to attend. It is small and growing. It is full of teachers who are there, not for the pay cheque, but to come along side us and invest in our children.  We are thrilled to be a part of this community.

Here are the high schoolers of Valley Christian School and Nyah, our Grade 12 graduate. Most of these kids have been home schooled until recently so this is a new season and a new challenge for them. For those of you waiting to graduate, do not take these years for granted. Use them well to study and grow and develop your character. May you never lose sight of the most important thing… all that Christ did for you.  Nyah… may you continue to trust God and lean on Him in all your future decisions. You don’t need to do anything, He did it all for you already!! Congratulations!!

I know Stephanie through our work as nurses (YAY Peds!) and it is such a privilege to be entrusted to photograph someone who knows me in a different role/life.:)

Stephanie and I worked briefly together in Abbotsford and we kept up our relationship through email and facebook. When she got engaged, I was thrilled and couldn’t wait to meet the guy who swept this jem off her feet. Turns out that we also have a connection with Jesse as he was a groomsman in the first wedding we ever photographed. Wow! I didn’t grow up here so it’s my turn for one of these funky “only in the Fraser Valley” connections.

Sisters! https://www.loreleiphotography.com/blog/2013/4/Sisters I had the privilege of taking these two gorgeous sisters out on a beautiful warm evening and fun was had! Their closeness and bubbly personalities definitely resulted in a lot of laughs! This was supposed to be a training and information “session” for Rachel (white dress) and my sister in law Nicole (should have snapped a pic of you with that battery pack!) …. just in case I need an assist on a photo shoot! Well…things don’t always go as planned and despite some equipment failure I am absolutely thrilled with how these turned out.

 Rachel is our beloved babysitter and now that she’s graduating it’s on to a new and exciting stage of life for her (we’ll miss you)! Sarah graduated last year and she’s ready to start a new career as a hair stylist. I am are so glad to be a part of your lives, to see where God leads you! 

Senior (as in High School Seniors) photography is a relatively new concept in Canada. Rather than those same old photos done at the school, a custom photo session allows personalities to shine through! It’s such a precious time in life and so worth capturing. Contact me for details!

Think these girls got some personality?? You’re right!!

Check out their youtube channels at SarahHeartsSparkle and TRUKarategirl96

I am not surprised at how many subscribers they have! Way to go girls!

Musicians! https://www.loreleiphotography.com/blog/2013/4/Musicians  I love music. It has always been in my blood and although my days of taking lessons and playing regularly are over (for now), I absolutely love hearing world class music played in my home! Who wouldn’t?? One of the wonderful things about having a violin luthier living on the property is being able to meet some amazing musicians. These three are incredible. We’ve known Deniz Tahberer since he was a teenager, having just arrived from Turkey to study with Robert Rozak in Vancouver. Although he’s living in Europe again, we do get to see him occasionally. On this visit he brought along Sarah Thery, a beautiful mezzo soprano (my children are in love with her!) and Ammiel Bushakevitz, an incredible pianist. We had the privilege of hosting them in our home (my mother in law, actually) and were able to hear them perform at South Abbotsford Church with Calvin Dyck as host, organizer and co-performer. On Saturday we fit in a quick photo session. Head shots are important in any business!

As a little brag… Deniz plays an instrument handcrafted by my father in law, Hermann Janzen  www.janzenviolins.com

Baby K! https://www.loreleiphotography.com/blog/2013/3/Baby-K What a sweet little guy he is. Now that my babies are growing up, it is so precious to spend some time with the brand new, tiny variety! Baby Keatin wasn’t so sure about the whole photo idea but once we got him settled in all cozy, he quietly drifted off to sleep and we were able to capture some sleeping shots. Congratulations Jen & Kyle & Kieran!! I love seeing your family grow!

It brings a sense of urgency to the shoot that causes me to be alert to new possibilities. As we were driving to meet Ryley and Liam, Orlando and I were watching the unsettled weather and as we got closer, we could see the rain pouring down right over our destination!! What to do?? In BC, we shoot anyway and hope for the best. I think you’ll agree that this storm brought incredible results!

Rainbows remind me of the hope that we have in Christ, His promise of grace and mercy, His undeserved forgiveness. And, for this shoot, His promise of love and forgiveness that is demonstrated daily in the marriages of those who love Him!! We are so glad to have met you Ryley and Liam and we look forward to sharing in your wedding day….. soon! Prepare well….. your adventure lies ahead….:)

Danielle & Bryson https://www.loreleiphotography.com/blog/2013/2/Danielle-Bryson This was another beautiful fall wedding! They are sometime risky where the weather is concerned but Danielle and Bryson were blessed with sunshine at all the right times. Just as we were wrapping up our outdoor location, it started to POUR! Thanks to some helpful strangers and a quick thinking groomsman (thanks Aaron!),  the couple stayed dry!

Our indoor location was the Clayburn Village Store & Tea Shop. Danielle was an employee there and they were gracious enough to allow us in for some memorable photos. I love the ambience of this nostalgic shop and some of my favorite photographs from this day came at the very end (umbrella shots). We were experimenting with our equipment and Orlando and I were thrilled with the results! I’d love to hear your comments and don’t forget to hover over the pics for mine!

 I think some fun was had… :)

Check them out at their 2 year old session here: http://wp.me/p1Dh4v-5z This time it was the whole family. Cassidy’s “stink eye” had me rolling on the floor! Thanks Sid & Katy!

Waiting for the 2nd Addition!! https://www.loreleiphotography.com/blog/2013/2/Waiting-for-the-2nd-Addition

Thanks for your patience while I took a couple of weeks off! Orlando and I caught a friend’s wedding in California on our way to a very relaxing vacation in the Dominican. I’m hoping to post some pictures here once I’m caught up!

Enjoy this very fun maternity session we did in December. We had the rare opportunity to combine a studio shoot with a bit of outdoors.

Baby is not here yet (any day, ANY DAY!!) but I’m sure Jen is ready to hit the eject button (too bad we didn’t come with those!).  Kieran was totally adorable and typically two. I got a good laugh as I edited these! Take a good look at his ever so expressive face! Looking forward to meeting this beautiful bump…

Thanks Jen and Kyle for trusting us yet again to capture these milestones for you! We love seeing your family grow!!

David & Catie’s Wedding https://www.loreleiphotography.com/blog/2013/1/David-Catie-s-Wedding So… I’m a bit… OK… massively behind in my posts but before I take a couple of weeks off,I just had to share Catie and David’s wonderful wedding with you!

First of all, rarely have I seen a groom so excited about each and every detail of his wedding. This was such a team effort. From their thrift store finds turned into beautiful displays, to their love of color and the amazing bicycle loving restored by David’s Dad (a gift to Catie!), this was a day to remember! Oh yes… and who could forget the pinata!

Thank you to all of you, friends and family and wedding party who became musicians, chefs, organizers and decorators, MC’s, hairdressers, errand runners and helpers.                                                     You gave Catie and David the day of their dreams!

Andrew and Rachelle (Prince George Wedding Photography) https://www.loreleiphotography.com/blog/2012/10/Andrew-and-Rachelle-Prince-George-Wedding-Photography I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving! Family, friends, cooler weather and some moments set aside to remember how much we have to be thankful for. We are really very blessed.

This summer I had the amazing privilege to photograph my cousin’s wedding in Prince George. I LOVE being a part of the “behind-the-scenes” at weddings and so much more when I get to spent the day with my cousin and his lovely bride. They had such wonderful places picked out for pictures … not only beautiful but personal as well.  Rachelle works at the university (what an amazing campus) and Ferguson Lake… first date location!

All the best to you Andrew and Rachelle. May you discover more of Christ as your marriage deepens and grows. We love you guys!!

Bryson and Danielle (Mission Wedding Photography) https://www.loreleiphotography.com/blog/2012/9/Bryson-and-Danielle-Mission-Wedding-Photography Have I said this before? I LOVE witnessing unfolding love stories.

We know Bryson and Danielle from our church, before they were interested in each other (I assume….) but not before their story began. You see, Danielle and Bryson have known each other for quite some time. Don’t you love that? I can see them sitting on their porch swing 30 years from now, talking about the old days….. “Remember when you did that crazy thing at youth group?” “Yea… I thought you were a total geek… but look at us now!” It is such a privilege to have history with someone long before you make a lifelong commitment.

Danielle had a great location in mind for their engagement photos and the weather was absolutely perfect. These two are so much fun (you’ll see!) and we are very exciting to photograph their October wedding. Thanks to Ferncliff Gardens www.ferncliffgardens.com for making a beautiful bouquet for us to play with.

Aaron & Sarah (Abbotsford Engagement Photography) https://www.loreleiphotography.com/blog/2012/9/Aaron-Sarah-Abbotsford-Engagement-Photography Engagement sessions are some of my favorite sessions to shoot. Recording these precious pre-marriage moments are so exciting and that anticipation is definitely contagious…that’s why I bring my husband along to help out:)

Aaron contacted us before the proposal to set up a session; a first for us! Sarah is from far, far away and was in town for a “visit”…. so she thought! A side trip to the interior to stay with family led to an amazing proposal at the beautiful Burrowing Owl Winery. The answer was YES and the session was a definite GO!

Aaron is a friend of ours and it was such a pleasure to meet Sarah. No awkward moments, just real, relaxed, old-fashioned picture taking fun! May God continue to bless you both as you seek to glorify Him in your wedding planning and especially in your marriage.

We had an amazing maternity session with them and now….


Despite a sweltering photo session (remember those super hot summer evenings?) and a stranger loving him up, this wee guy was great. I love when families add personal touches to their shoots. Stacey made the beautiful quilt that Dallas is sleeping on. I’m seriously impressed!

Welcome baby Dallas… you have good genes so it’s not surprising that you’re so adorable.

PS. I know you’re super long & lanky but thanks for letting me scrunch you up!:)

Well… that’s what we did! And what  a hilarious evening we had. During the shoot, I even put my camera down… Paul had me in stitches. Christina, I predict much laughter in your future!! Between humorous comments, hilarious stories and a woman’s exercise class cheering them on (yes… in the middle of the shoot!) we had a very fun couple of hours with these two!

I’m so glad that your friend gave you the donated shoot (proceeds to women in need in Mission). Congratulations!

There is so much unknown but so much hoped for and anticipated. That long waited for baby is already a part of your family, in your hearts, already loved. Having been there three times, I remember the joy of waiting and but I’m also empathetic with the inevitable discomfort of carrying a baby! Stacey you are so gorgeous and make it look so easy! And Brian… you may be the luckiest guy in all the world. Can’t wait to see this bump on the outside!

What is better than….. https://www.loreleiphotography.com/blog/2012/7/What-is-better-than What is better than….

a warm summer evening (finally….), beautiful sunset light, a grassy field, an old hayloft?? (This IS a photographer asking, people…. )

Drumroll please…………………………………………………….


Yes… okay… don’t shoot me… it’s sounds so corny but for real, this couple is fantastic. They let us try a new location (right down the street from our house!), were enthusiastic as we got all artist-like on them setting our lights, put up with nasty mosquitoes, and laughed at our ridiculous banter.

 What does that have to do with love? A lot can be told in an hour or two in front of a camera! We saw them encouraging, laughing, helping each other. So much goes into creating and maintaining a successful marriage and we are very excited about Catie and David.

Most importantly, these two are seeking Christ to lead their new life together. What is better than that?


Congrats David and Catie!

Having everyone packed into that church beautiful tiny church gave a real sense of family. Of support and love and togetherness.

I loved the way you put your personal touches on all the details. Your family and friends kicked in to make sure your elegant and heartfelt wedding was perfect. Hope you’ve had a wonderful day remembering and looking forward to the years ahead!!

These two monkeys ran and ran

while Mom and I made complete sillies out of ourselves to get just the right shot.

We laughed and enjoyed the energy and curiosity that comes with being two.

Melanie and Jason {Fraser Valley Engagement Photographer} https://www.loreleiphotography.com/blog/2011/12/Engaged-Melanie-and-Jason-Fraser-Valley-Engagement-Photographer When I think of this couple, two words come to mind… Outdoor Adventurers! These two take “active lifestyle” to a whole new level. Mountain biking, winter camping, hiking, you name it, they love it! Ever since I’ve known Mel, the outdoors is where she loves to be. When she told me that Jason proposed on a snowy mountain trip way up in the backcountry, I knew this was the continuation of a very, very good thing.

 I’m excited that she’s found a great guy that loves all the activities she does plus he makes her laugh and treats her like gold. And… I don’t think I need to tell Jason what a fantastic girl he’ll have for a wife! I’m so happy for you guys!!

Thanks for bringing Chinook along… he made a few surprise appearances!!

Denise and Evan https://www.loreleiphotography.com/blog/2011/11/Denise-and-Evan
How can I describe this wedding?

Between the amazing venues, the childhood friends, the personal, meaningful details, the supportive families and the uberexcited bride and groom this was a truly great day!! As I’ve been preparing these pictures, I’ve been struck by the incredible emotion and love captured.

Denise is my stepsister and I feel so privileged to be a part of her day. We are stepsisters because we both lost a parent to cancer and now her beautiful Mom is married to my Dad. As a  tribute to her Dad, Denise had his ring incorporated into her bouquet. He would have been honored. At the reception we heard the most encouraging and loving speeches. How amazing to hear the friends and family of the couple speak so highly of them, to laugh with them but most of all to encourage them in their new marriage.

Look carefully…. there are some amazing moments.

Thanks Denise and Evan! We had a blast photographing your day.

Feel free to leave the couple a comment! Looking for more? Scroll Down… for Denise and Evan’s Preview post.

Which to choose? This particular evening was one of those rare, magical fall evenings when everything comes together perfectly

…. colors, light, location and a couple that’s only a little bit hot!! Mel and I used to work together and she’s become a great friend.

We’ve been talking about doing this shoot since she and Jason got engaged last winter

October is a time for cool weather, changing leaves, brisk winds and a spectacular wedding. I had the privilege of shooting my stepsister’s wedding a couple of weeks ago. They booked some amazing venues and this is just a quick sneak peek at what’s to come!

Apparently, Denise’s co-workers were dying to see pictures of her dress…. Here you go guys! The dress was unbelievable and she was beyond stunning.

Full Circle https://www.loreleiphotography.com/blog/2011/9/Full-Circle Don’t you just love it when things come full circle?

In just a few weeks, I will be so excited to photograph the wedding of a family friend. Her parents have known my parents… forever! Before either of them got together, before either of US were even a thought! They stood up for each other at their weddings, they encouraged and prayed for each other through some very dark days. We prayed for them as they served overseas at a Bible School. So, even though I haven’t even seen my friend since we were young children, I feel like we are friends. History friends.

So my full circle will come when I can be a part of her special day and capture memories that will last forever.

Something tells me my Mom would be smiling.

Not sure where the year has gone but she’s been such a gift and a joy to us. AND she’s incredibly easy to photograph.

I pull out my camera and she smiles. Any bets on how long that’s going to last?

This may or may not have been taken just before naptime… I’ll let you decide!

Thanks also to Josh’s grandparents who gave us full access to their amazing property. We had beautiful lawns, rock features, a pool, stone benches, and an amazing western facade to work with. They even let me up on their private balcony!

Here’s one of the wedding party that I absolutely love:

Kara arrived on a horse and carriage to see Josh for the first time. A very special moment for them!! Afterwards we took advantage of the beautiful carriage…

Here’s a few of the kids that were in the wedding party! Just for the Oma’s/Grandma’s/Mommy’s and Daddy’s in the crowd!!

These two are so adorable but can someone let me know if I actually posted one of Eden and one of Cassidy….
