She is a lifetime resident of the Okanagan Valley and graduate of the prestigious Western Academy of Photography. Her rigorous photographic training has also led her to study with two of the top ten wedding photographers in the world – Joe Buissink and Jerry Ghionis.
She has spent years traveling the world looking for that “perfect shot” and it shows in her world class portfolio. Renee’s academic background also includes a B.Ed. from Trinity Western University and she has taught photography internationally.
A focus in fine art studies led to Renee working for 3 years as an art dealer and art gallery director. Renee’s specialty in art was Rembrandt Van Rijn, the Baroque master of chiaroscuro, an Italian renaissance term describing the interplay of light and shadows. Today, some of Renee’s more famous photographs hang next to some rare Rembrandt etchings in her gallery.
It is this combination of academic photographic training and her long time study of art that has led to Renee’s unique and compelling style of photography. Her work has been hailed as, “the perfect blend of craftsmanship and artistry”. A quote that Renee is happy to live with, as her goal with Wedded Bliss Photography is to transform every precious memory into an actual work of art.
Dear Bride and Groom,
I’ve had a love affair with Photography since I was a little girl. I spent years traveling the globe searching for the elusive “perfect shot”. And I finally realized something. Something that caused me to change the entire focus of my life and business.
I discovered that even the most spectacular sunset, set in the most breathtaking place, pales in comparison to the sheer joy and expectation that I can capture when I photograph a Wedding. Because a Wedding is the universe’s finest moment.
And that’s why I became The Wedding Photography Specialist™. I’ve had the pleasure and distinct honour to capture, illuminate, and magnify those special moments at Weddings all over the world, including Europe, the Unites States, Canada and the Caribbean.
And whether you are planning a gala Wedding in a destination locale, or a small and intimate ceremony in your backyard, I look forward to capturing every beautiful moment of your unique Wedding Story.
