jordan and kayli chose panorama resort in the columbia valley for their destination wedding this august. the ceremony was held at the riverbend site near toby creek and despite having a bit of rain, it was a stunning day and we captured beautiful moments of jordan, kayli and their son chase with all of their family and friends.

it was a pleasure spending the day with this group… kayli was an absolute vision in her dress and all of her bridesmaids were lovely. jordan and his guys looked great and enjoyed keeping everyone entertained throughout the day with their playful jokes and commentary. the colours for the wedding were gorgeous as were all of the details and decor. evelyn clark weddings did an amazing job creating the perfect day for jordan and kayli. it was fabulous working with them and seeing how it all came together. little chase was adorable in his suit and melted everyone’s hearts when he walked up to mom and dad as they were signing the registry. i think he managed to get a quick drawing onto the paper before jordan and kayli were announced.

the reception was held at the great hall and looked beautifully transformed. the speeches were amazing, i think everyone laughed and cried… and the room seemed totally captivated by each person who got up to share their stories and best wishes for the bride and groom.

jordan and kayli, congratulations on having a wonderful celebration with an amazing group of people. it was so much fun to spend the day with you and help create these lasting memories!

ckwpe_01_kyla_brown_photography_engagement_destination_invermerecurtis and krista are getting married this coming weekend at panorama resort. their destination wedding will be held outdoors at riverbend near toby creek, surrounded by the beautiful mountains and fresh air of the columbia valley.

i first got to meet these two for their engagement session earlier this summer where we spent the evening roaming the earth with their adorable dog ‘blue’ and looking out over columbia lake. it was windy up there and it made for some dramatic mountain photos. all three looked like super stars with their beautiful curly hair.

i loved that they were camping for the weekend and arrived looking spruced up yet relaxed… it was easy to put themselves together for a session that was all about celebrating their love and hanging out in a place that they enjoy. i also loved that blue went from clean and fluffy to super muddy and totally joyful about it. adorable.

curtis and krista were game for anything as we headed down to the shore for some ‘toes in the water’ shots, ‘climb into the foliage’ shots and ‘meander down the tracks’ shots. it was awesome to be capturing the connection between krista and curtis as they laughed together… eyes sparkling with life. i can hardly wait to see that again this weekend. i suspect the entire day will be filled with moments like that.

trevor and jess said their vows on the gazebo at eagle ranch resort in invermere, bc. it’s a magical spot that overlooks lake windermere and it was perfect for their intimate afternoon ceremony in august.

we had met a few weeks earlier for a family portrait/engagement session with trevor and jess’ beautiful six week old son julien. it was so much fun to capture these two as they enjoyed smiles and snuggles with their little boy.

i knew julien was going to be wearing some sort of suit for the wedding and could hardly wait to see it! he and dad wore matching bowties and it was just as adorable as it sounds.

jess looked breathtaking in her backless wedding gown and trevor was handsome in his suit. we enjoyed taking some portraits of the soon to be newly weds in a bit of shade before the ceremony started. we took advantage of some mountain views and trees, then headed out to the gazebo for family portraits with guests.

the ceremony was lovely. it was heartfelt and moving and honest. i learned that trevor and jess found one another somewhat unexpectedly and were delighted to recognize a best friend and partner in each other. there was hardly a dry eye as trevor shared his feelings with jess and as i scanned the faces of the guests, everyone was beaming with love and excitement.

trevor and jess, thank you for inviting me to your beautiful afternoon wedding. it was a pleasure to photograph your wedding and to be a part of such a special day. thank you!

bjwi_21_kyla_brown_photography_copper_point_wedding_invermerebrian and jesse chose to celebrate their wedding with a beautiful outdoor ceremony on the opal patio at copper point resort in invermere bc this august. i was looking forward to photographing them since we hadn’t been able to connect for an engagement session. it was really nice to sit down face to face the day before the wedding and discuss their vision for the day.

these two are easy to chat with, friendly and clear about what they want, which was perfect for capturing their day. there were some beautiful details that i loved… like the bracelets that jesse had gifted to each of her girls (including mom) and brian’s amazing cuff links. the cake topper was also a highlight of the day, showcasing brian and jesse’s love of their two fur babies, who were eagerly awaiting a visit in the hotel room when we took a few quiet moments for a family portrait.

i love that copper point resort accommodates animals… it’s so nice for people to have that option to travel with their beloved pets and have them share in the celebration of the day.

brian looked calm and dapper waiting for his bride, shades on and hands in his pockets… it didn’t take long to see the emotion though once jesse was in site. i still find it so moving when a couple is brought to tears in those precious moments. jesse looked so beautiful and i have to say, one of my favourite photos of the day was when she was thanking all of the guests after dinner and brian was looking at her with these eyes filled with so much love and tenderness… it’s the kind of gaze anyone would wish for from the one they love.

brian and jesse, thanks so much for a wonderful day! congratulations and i wish you all the best together!

i got to meet cody, kellie and their sweet little boy mason for an engagement session earlier this year. they brought their (huge) super sweet dogs along for the session and we had a great time exploring the forest and playing in the grass. these dogs were so gentle, sweet and friendly… not to mention funny and of course a part of the family. there’s nothing quite like having a dog run towards me as i am crouching in the grass taking photos and knowing i’ll be covered in kisses upon his arrival. i love it!

mason was completely adorable… all smiles and totally happy to have his photo taken. he’s definitely a natural and those gorgeous blue eyes are stunning. i can hardly wait to see him all dressed up for the wedding!

cody and kellie are getting married this coming weekend at the ever beautiful goldie creek estates (grizzly ridge) and i am so excited for their celebration! this will be my first wedding on the property. i have always enjoyed it when i have visited for engagement and bridal portraits and i’m looking forward to photographing this ceremony near the waterfall. the reception will be held at copper point resort, which is always a great venue. i know it’s going to be a wonderful day.

cody and kellie, i have been looking forward to your wedding and i’m excited to be spending the day with you soon!
