Carly and Bruce testimonial

Lisa is just a fantastic wedding photographer!!! We are so glad we picked her for our wedding & engagement photos. They are all amazing!!! Lisa is so friendly, knowledgeable, flexible & makes you comfortable & at ease in front of the camera! Most of the time you forget she is there capturing the moment & most of all she will go out of her way to get the pictures you want & probably didn’t know you wanted until you see them. We held our wedding at Sun Peaks in February. It was amazing & the photos are just WOW! 😍😍😍We love them all, it was hard to choose pictures for the album, but I am so glad we have them all, they are as special as our day was! Lisa your work is amazing, you capture the memories & the little things so well. I can not wait to hire you again for the next set of pictures we need!

Regina + Robert testimonial

Lisa who provided so much information as we weren’t sure where even to begin. Once we spoke with her we knew instantly we wanted her to capture our special day. Lisa makes you feel so comfortable and was so subtle in capturing our day we even forgot she was there! 🙂 Our photographs were absolutely incredible, she captured the emotions and memories so beautifully. She wrote a blog about our wedding day which was beautifully written. We were able to share this with family and friends who we unable to make it. Our wedding album and photos came in a gorgeous, well presented box. It was just absolutely lovely. Thank you so much Lisa!   Regina + Robert winter wedding

Shevawn and Dave testimonial

We chose Lisa as our wedding photographer and couldn’t have been happier with that decision! She really captured the moments and spirit of the day, and I love reliving the memories through her beautiful images. She was easy to work with, listened to our preferences (lots of colour!) and was always available and accommodating. She even travelled to us (in Vancouver) for our engagement shoot! I had a completely positive experience and would absolutely recommend Lisa to anyone seeking a photographer, especially for that special day.

Your Title Goes Here

Lisa is absolutely incredible. Not only are her photographs stunning, she’s always relaxed and gets along with everybody. Her communication is fantastic. She goes above and beyond – before, during and after the session – from wading into the lake past the tops of her boots for the perfect shot to creating not one but two ‘running from a dinosaur’ photos for us. We can’t recommend her enough!

Thank you again from the bottom of our hearts Lisa!

Engagement sessions

Every wedding package includes one

 

A great relationship with your photographer will go a long way towards creating amazing photos on your wedding day!  Most people have spent very little time in front of a camera and it can be an intimidating experience. An engagement session is a fantastic way for you and your photographer to get to know each other and helps you feel comfortable in front of a camera, making wedding day photos that much easier.

I  encourage my couples to enjoy the experience, to soak in the time together… have fun,  be romantic, play, snuggle, adventure,  just take time to BE together.

Engagement sessions are always an adventure… maybe we’ll explore the Kamloops area, or hang out in downtown Vancouver, Kitsilano or Stanley Park. Maybe we’ll meander one of the beautiful Shuswap beaches or hike up a mountain together.   Or maybe there’s that place you went on your first date, or where the proposal happened.  Whatever your adventure looks like, we’ll do it!

I’m Lisa, a Kamloops BC Wedding photographer

who’s passionate about telling your whole beautiful, one-of-a-kind LOVE story

I’m here to capture all the details you’ve mindfully put into your day to make it a truly beautiful reflection of who you are, whatever that looks like.   Intimate ceremonies. Lavish wedding events.  Adventurous elopements. Creative romantic portraits.  Partying with your friends or chilling with the family. Whether your wedding is on the beach or on a mountain, in your backyard or at a resort, whether you have 10 or 200 guests, it’s going to be amazing and I’ll be there to photograph it all!

My mission at every wedding  is to unobtrusively capture the fun, the love, the joy, the moments, all the emotions of your wedding day in a way that will bring you right back into those emotions and moments whenever you look at the images.

I have photographed weddings in the high heat of August, in the pouring rain, in snow storms, in every season and everything in between. I’ve photographed weddings at almost every venue in the Kamloops area, across BC, across Canada and as far away as Jamaica and Australia. After 15 years of documenting weddings, I’ve seen a LOT… not it all, haha, but a lot. I’ve learned to photograph in pretty much any weather and in any light (from harsh midday sunshine to a nighttime candle lit wedding)

I am honestly kind of obsessed with finding incredible light (and I WILL find it)….  and one of my favorite things is putting couples in that crazy good light for their creative portraits.  I’ve recently become known for my addition of night time portraits with my couples.  We sneak away from the dance floor for just a few minutes to find a cool night spot and create some magic before they head back to the festivities.

Finding the right photographer is a big job, and I’m thrilled your search has landed you here to check me out! Take a look around, and make sure you hit up my blog for more of my most recent work. If what you see resonates with you I’d LOVE to hear from you and talk more about your wedding and photography!!  xo
