Just a few short years ago, we would never have expected the honour we received this week, being recognized as Best Wedding Photographer by the Georgia Straight.
Since we started our studio full-time, we always wanted to do what matters - to make a difference in the lives of our couples...
Yes, wedding details are important. Yes, wedding beauty is important. Yes, the ritual of a wedding is important.
But what is infinitely more important to the couples that grace our lives, and to us, is the special connections that weddings create. Weddings are an amazing opportunity, like no other, to connect families, communities and friends. We see it over and over again in the weddings we photograph. Of course details and beauty are important, but to us, it's true connection and vision that create the details that matter most.
And with each wedding we are invited to photograph, we feel as though we take a part of that wedding with us - we feel grateful to come to know each couple in a personal way, and to have been invited into lives even if only for a short time. It's a privilege - each and every time. There are many kinds of moments - but the moments that matter to us, are the moments that matter to our couples.
So today and this week, we're incredibly grateful - first of all to the couples that have invited us into their lives - and of course to our expanding network of friends and colleagues who love what we do and whom we respect so much. THANK YOU so very much!
None of this would be possible without the incredibly creative and honest talents of our full team. First of all, we have to thank Aimée Makris who has been an invaluable part of our photographic team - she has encouraged us (constantly!) to be all that we can be, and has supported us every step of the way with her talent and dedication. We also want to recognize Katerina Stravakis who has inspired us and our clients with her energy and love, Sharon Hsaio, who has supported all of the creative work that happens behind the scenes, and Adrian Hrytzak with all of his artistic talents.
And finally, each and every day we're blown away by the talent in Vancouver. We have a vibrant photography industry that includes so many inspiring and talented photographers who have a passion for photography and serving their clients. We feel very fortunate and inspired to be a part of this industry.
Thank you Vancouver!
