We believe that life is whatever you make it.
↟ Gratitude grows on trees ↟
And happiness is best when shared.
Since 2011 Kris has been documenting a multitude of adorable Engagements, adventurous Elopements, and wild Weddings across British Columbia and Alberta. Photographing Weddings is where Kris is in his element, as the eye of the hurricane, capturing stills and appropriately facilitating the surroundings with a wisdom that only experience can bring.
In 2017 Emily decided to join the fun as Kris’ eagle-eyed assistant and social media maven. Under Kris’ watchful eye she has been carefully cultivating her photography skills and exploring the boundaries of her inspiration. She tends to favour the more romantic and whimsical side of life.
Together their attention to detail is unparalleled, and their creative collaboration is proving to be a powerful force.

Lead Photographer & Founder | Big Picture Ponderer | Coffee Connoisseur ☕
When Kris isn’t behind the camera you’ll find him planning his next road trip, pursuing that #hammocklife, and strumming his Simon & Patrick guitar.
His inspiration comes from: single origin coffee, scaling the highest mountains, and finding those wild places where the only thing he can hear is his own shutter speed.

When Emily isn’t trying to keep up with Kris’ untamed ideas, she'll most likely be fawning over houseplants, becoming best friends with the nearest doggo, or crying about tv commercials.
Her favourite things include: running downhill in snowshoes, sweet potato brownies, and dancing as if no one is watching.
What do we live for?
↟ Sleeping under the stars ↟ That first sip of coffee ↟ Taking our socks off when we get to the top
↟ Speaking a language only we understand ↟ Cold nights wrapped in warm blankets
When it comes down to it, we're really just 2 normal people, with an extraordinary desire to acquire awesome memories!
How we do the things we do...
Our style is akin to photojournalism - the ability to blend in to the background whilst documenting the beauty of life as it organically unfolds.
What’s your story? We want to help you tell it! From your unique personality, heartfelt & humorous plot lines, and all the crazy (or coy) characters in between, we’ve got you covered.
Kris is always keen to go to great lengths (and heights!) to capture that perfect shot. No staging, posing, or pretending is required! He will give creative direction when appropriate, but otherwise the magic happens in the moment, and it’s his job to memorialize it in that split second.
Meanwhile, Emily is concentrating on the finer details, the intricacies and efficiencies, and scouting out those peaceful and playful instances that shouldn’t be passed by or forgotten.
What’s most important to us is that our clients place a high value on their photo and video content, because we do! We LOVE love, and we really love catching those moments and making them memories - treasured and timeless.
