inspired | martha martha martha

Truth time - I went through Bridal magazine withdrawals after getting hitched.  Really.  I couldn't walk by them in the grocery store without the pang of want to pick it up, go through it, drool over the bling, the couture gowns, the Plaza...

I'm always so inspired by Martha Stewart's Weddings magazine, and luckily for me, I can still purchase them for my "business", even though I rifle through them for design, decor and dinner party ideas... 

And, if you don't care for the print version, maybe because you're going green, check out the website for great ideas for your invites, your decor, your dress and everything else wedding related!

best of '08 | wedding photography, powell river, bc

I got a suggestion - to post my favorite wedding shots from last year - and it was HARD to narrow down!  But, without further ado, here they are.  (And, I needed to get this done before February.  I could go on forever!)

display | custom portrait wall

Hallelujah!  Your session is complete.  Your photos are delivered.

Do not let those sit there, on a disk!  Let your gorgeous family shine in a custom portrait wall, like this one.  I designed the layout specifically for a wall just inside their entryway, and it looks fab!

Inspired? Good.

Let's book you a session - I'm only booking two a month! - and get your gorgeous family framed!

preview | custom invitations

I was totally excited when my brother's fiancée, Andrea, asked me to create custom invitation for their upcoming wedding. I just got them back from the printer, and I had to share. I'm in love with the neo-flower-power pattern and colour scheme...

Could this also be a sneak peek of things to come?

I loooove my (not-so) new slideshow program, and will be using it on the blog more often to showcase wedding work!  

Below is one of the most original weddings I shot last year... enjoy a mini-show!

mcbride family | family photography, powell river, bc

A family photo from a rare occasion - all kids are home from all corners of the world! I caught this on Christmas day! It had been over ten years since they last had a group photo done of their family, and was happy to do it for them!
