Simply Rose Photography  Vancouver, BC based photographer available for local and destination weddings. Lover of all things West Coast.

A few weeks ago I attended a workshop hosted at @twigstwisted and was led by @reubenmarkstewart . Not only did I get to participate in making a beautiful arrangement with all locally grown items, but I also took a few photos from the event. It was so much fun to see all the different creations that the attendees were making, including this one in some beautiful fall tones. If you’re keen to see some more flower goodness (especially in light of all this heavy rain we’ve been having!) hop on over to my other endeavour at @thefrontyardflowerco.

Winter is coming.

I LOVE it when couples have me back to shoot their growing families! Tina and Will got married several years ago and have added a new little fella to the mix! What a joy to meet him and to get to know his little personality a bit at this in home family lifestyle session. If you are interested in having a cozy session at home with your family this winter, let me know! I’m always up for capturing those sweet snuggles 😀

I know it’s not #tbt but I’m still posting this anyways. One of my favourite #fallweddings right here with @cindygomey and her hubs. This was the wedding that was supposed to be under a storm deluge two years ago but we ended up with the most delightful weather. I had 4 backup plans for photo locations, it was some of the most intense and stressful planning I’ve ever had to do and boy was I ever grateful that I didn’t need to do any of them. I had some loose “fair weather” plans in my head just in case and what transpired were some of my favourite creative photos to date. I was inspired by the couple’s colour palette, the bride’s beautiful @jennypackham dress and everyone’s jovial spirit - it was just one of those days where everything aligned in such a magnificent, unexpected way. And also, I am a bit biased because fall is my favourite season.

Believe it or not, there are locations that I keep in my head for many years before I ever get the chance to use them, this one included. It’s not an elusive spot, it’s just the gardens beside a quiet part of the law courts in downtown #Vancouver. I love the tree line here, the curve of the path, the delicate Japanese maples all framed by the city in the background. It’s the perfect kind of location for portraits and it’s been in my head for many years until Annie and Johnny’s wedding this summer when I finally was able to use it. We may have lingered here a bit too long, but the light was perfect and they were having a sweet moment together.

All the West Coast casual wedding feels.

A 10 hour wedding day (most of it anyways!) at @seaciderhouse on Vancouver Island with @helena_t and @rawnsler in under 2 minutes! @partymood 🎵: Superlove @ohwondermusic

This #vancouverproposal was so amazing, I think my face broke from smiling so hard. Glen cooked up a real doozy of a plan to surprise his girlfriend at #JerichoBeach. A mutual friend called up their nearest and dearest in their friend group to organize a ‘photoshoot’ at the beach. Everyone thought it was a bit strange but went along with the idea, one even drove all the way from the Okanagan to be a part of it. Once everyone had arrived, we took some group shots and then I asked if there were any besties in the group for a few smaller group shots. This was the perfect lead in because Alyssa grabbed Glen’s hand and stood in front of my camera, having no idea she was going to be proposed to. Glen got down on one knee and the next thing I heard was a tremendous cheer from behind me - people were jumping up and down and just plain going nuts! No one knew Glen’s plan except for the long distance traveller, the person ‘organizing’ the photoshoot and myself. What a joy and honour to witness some of your best friends getting engaged in front of your very eyes! I think this is a moment that will never be forgotten and will be talked about for many years to come!

When your closest friends are invited to the #proposal.

Whew! It's been a while! Let's fix that, shall we? One from a recent #Vancouverwedding, getting ready shots with the #bride will always be some of my favourites.
