Sarah & Aaron

Sarah & Aaron’s wedding was our first of the year and my first after having my second baby– although I was so incredibly sore the following days that I could hardly walk I was so very happy– happy to be a part of an incredible celebration and to be able to document the wedding day of these two wonderful people. A good start to my year. I don’t as a rule post ring shots but this ring comes with a bit of a history– about a week before the wedding the ring was inadvertently trashed with some packaging. Members of the bridal party joined the bride and groom at the North Van garbage facility for a frantic search and after digging through thousands of pounds of trash they recovered this lovely ring. Sigh.

an easter wedding

I’m going to maybe start using this blog a bit more like I use my new instagram account ( @melialucida ) which I love because it’s all about a single frame. Simple. Beautiful. And easy to update. We had the great pleasure of photographing Sarah & Aaron on their wedding day on Easter weekend and I just want to share a few frames sooner rather than later. I love that they had a hash tag for their wedding as well– I just used it a moment ago.

R & J Brix wedding

Brix Restaurant really is one of my favourite wedding venues in Vancouver.


Hair and makeup by: Gems.

Thanks to my friend Amish Solanki for helping me out the whole day, too.

Ruth & Ari

I adored this wedding combining two beautiful families– six daughters who clearly loved each other and knew they were the better for their parents coming together. The incredible style played a supporting role in the celebration. Sandy Pandher of Dream Group was planner extraordinaire. Decor and florals by Simon Cooksley. Hair and Makeup by Mink. Two beautiful cakes by Anna Elizabeth Cakes, and of course many will recognize the charismatic Marilyn Knipp as their celebrant. Oh yes, and we ran into some zombies!

Erinn & Brent’s engagement session

Lighthouse Park in West Vancouver is one my favourite spots for engagement photos. I would love to do more wedding photos there too but it can involve a bit of a walk to get to my favourite spots. Here are a handful of breezy rock and ocean shots from Erinn & Brent’s engagement session just three days before their wedding. Emily Cheng did a gorgeous job with Erinn’s makeup and hair.
