A Quadra Story

At times, you are just full of inspiration. Other times, you need a little help. For me, inspiration comes in many different forms. An email, a conversation, a little rain, old books, the wind, the sky, a look of compassion or love passing between two people. Children making art, a nickname, a life story, someone inspired, a wedding created exploding with details. A couple in love. A bride inspired by the property on Quadra Island that she grew up on, full of whimsy, history, an apple orchard, old vehicles and signs, not to mention quirky awesomeness. Take a journey with us, on Crystal and Evan's amazing wedding. May you be as swept away in it, as we were. Rings custom made for the bride and groom, with their fingerprints etched on the inside of each ring. A book full of history, their wedding fell on Crystals great grandparents wedding anniversary and her grandma's birthday. They got ready together, which I love. A speech tucked inside a bridesmaids shoe. Rain= inspiration. Brother sister love A sweet ceremony under the weeping willow. Grandpa Bill and his disposable camera, winding and clicking through the whole ceremony. Priceless. Detail. Details. Details. A fabulous and fun polariod station.

Katie and Brandon

Quadra Island at its bestBright, wise, and full of life. Was my initial reaction upon meeting Katie and her family on Saturday at their wonderful (built and designed by dads hands) home on Quadra Island. From the moment I stepped onto their property, I understood what made them all so unique. They are inspired, passionate and adventurous. A marvelous combination. From the unique wedding dress, to the art work that covers their house, to the giant happy fun family photos on the walls or the authentically Mexican themed bathroom ... I knew, their Quadra Island wedding would be amazing.

Katie, was radiant. Relaxed. Excited. Brandon, was cool. Collected. Calm. Together, these two make wedding photography the most incredibly rewarding experience. Again, real moments= real magic.

Katie and Brandon...I told you on Saturday, but will let you know again... you both are pure magic.

Below Katie's sisters contemplate her makeup... it got hilarious, when they realized they could quickly turn into the 'evil sister's role... sisters Sorry, but makeup alone, doesn't make you this pretty.
