Vernon Photographer

As a Vernon Photographer who specializes in Weddings, many of my Brides and Grooms over the past 15 plus years will know this beautiful lady as my “right arm”.

Kate is my amazing associate photographer that I met in 2005 at Western Academy of Photography. She and I have been photographing weddings together ever since. I was lucky enough to have her move to the Okanagan a few years after we graduated Western Academy and I immediately asked her to join my team. She brings such a joy, creativity and calming energy to our weddings and clients absolutely adore her. As I do!

Well this year had different plans for our wedding season, and for those amazing clients who forged ahead, weddings got smaller and more intimate. Kate couldn’t be my plus one this season but it gave her time to create her own amazing photography business called…..

Okanagan Business Photography. She wanted fresh new headshots to use on her new website and I was excited to get her in front of my camera to show her clients a bit of her personality!

When I asked her a little bit about her vision for her company this is what she said:

I thrive on proving people wrong when they tell me they’re “not photogenic.” I’m like, “Oh really? That’s not even a thing and I’m gonna
show you.” I think it’s fair to say that 99% of the time, I’ve done just that.

Right before my finger presses the camera shutter button, I get this sixth-sense feeling, this is it. This feeling is a total rush and I’ve been chasing it since I don’t know when. It lead me to earning an associate degree in Professional Photography from the Western Academy of Photography, class of 2005, and from there I began a 15-year career covering all manners of lifestyle events.

I have a second associate degree in Business Administration majoring in Marketing at Okanagan College. I love helping clients create beautiful images and strategizing the best use of them.

Wedded Bliss Photography specializes in wedding and engagement photography in Kelowna and Vernon working at locations such as Summerhill Pyramid Winery, Keefer Lake Lodge, Silver Star Mountain Resort, Manteo Resort, Durali Villa and is a Vernon Photographer
