As an Okanagan Wedding Photographer, I love the amazing opportunities I have to work all over this beautiful valley, but also to meet clients from all over BC, Alberta and beyond. So many couples choose to have their wedding as a destination wedding in the gorgeous Okanagan Valley because they either have family living here or they have vacationed here before and fell in love with its beautiful scenery.
For Cassie and Andrew, who are getting married at the beautiful Silver Star Mountain Resort in July, it is a bit of both.
Cassie has parents in Kamloops and a grandpa in Vernon so it was the perfect location. Having only ever spoken on the phone to Cassie (as they live in Grande Prairie), it was so lovely to finally meet them in person. They were visiting Cassie’s parents over Christmas and wanted to make a trip to Vernon to visit Grandpa so it was the perfect chance to get together.
On Christmas day, my one request of my husband, was that he we go as a family for a winter walk. Living close to the BX Ranch Dog Park, we thought it would be perfect. It was so magical, that I knew I had to take Cassie and Andrew there. Not only is it a joyous location because of all the dogs, but the trails meander and wind through the woods, along BX Creek. And with the especially cold temperature we have been having (thankfully not during their session although they are pros at doing -40) there was so much gorgeous ice too.
Cassie and Andrew are such a sweet couple. Although feeling a little apprehensive about being in front of the camera, Andrew never complained or grumbled. He just had fun with Cassie and made sure to fix his eyes on his love.
Kate and I can’t wait to photograph their summer Wedding and look forward to getting to know them more over the coming months as the countdown begins to July!
