My work is a mix between photojournalistic and fine art photography. I specialize in weddings and lifestyle photography based in my hometown Vancouver.
Prior to photography, I studied finance and was a residential appraiser in a small company and also worked at a women's shelter in the downtown east side. I gave up my work to pursue my passion and I have never looked back. My journey into photography began somewhat organically while planning my own wedding. I was inspired by the beauty of capturing a wedding with all the intimate emotions amongst family and friends. What started as a passion soon turned into a profession. My goal at every wedding is to create a set of photographs that are a timeless piece of art which elegantly represents the unique qualities of each couple.
I enjoy life with my husband, Kin who is also the second photographer, along with our two little boys. When we are not photographing weddings, I love exploring the outdoors with my little family and trying new places to eat.
As a second shooter.. my first priority is to assist .. making sure things are going in order so that Christie can properly do her job. (weddings can be chaotic sometimes!) Of course, I too, take snaps throughout the day - whether it be from a different angle or of another event happening simultaneously. Four eyes are always better than two!
My typical day starts by capturing the groom while he is getting ready. This is one of my favourite events to document - those mixed emotions that come before the big day... be it nervousness, excitement... or fear!
