Amanda-Lee & Johanna {Victoria, BC Wedding Photography}

Johanna and I met when we were nine. It's one of those friendships that pick up right where we left off no matter how much time has passed - we've hardly ever lived in the same place over all these years, and life gets busy as we all know, but when we would reconnect, it was like no time had passed. So I had heard stories about Amanda for quite some time, obviously, but I didn't actually meet her until the day of the wedding!

What can I say about their wedding? My first time on a vespa, shooting while being driven by their yoga teacher. Witnessing their morning yoga session on the spot where they would later be married. Being welcomed by their incredibly kind families - they really could not have been more gracious to me. The lovely, intimate, meaningful ceremony, and all the care that went into creating the altar and blessings, and the promises made between Jo and Amanda. Plenty of time for portraits (always appreciated!). And the reception... Held at the amazing home of a family friend, with dinner by The London Chef - don't even get me started on the food. Or the gluten-free cakes. Seriously - unreal.

I could go on and on, but let's let the photographs speak for themselves. The happiness is infectious. I cannot describe how filled with joy I am for these two and their families and friends. And for myself, that I got to be there.
