luke and stephanie | chilliwack wedding photographer | kerensa leigh

i can’t get over how excited i am to be present during the love journey these two are on:)i knew when stephanie and i first met that i really wanted to shoot her wedding. she has such a kind spirit and she is vibrant and full of life. we emailed back and forth after our initial meeting bouncing ideas off each other and this was all before she actually booked me…lol!
the three of us met for coffee and luke is also just an exceptional guy and you can feel the bond between these two. he looks at steph with such adoration and excitement to start a long life together.
one of my favorite parts of my job as a wedding photographer is absolutely getting to know really cool people that i’d never have the opportunity to meet otherwise and it seems to keep my love for my husband alive and fresh. there’s just something contagious about young love:)
anyways, back to luke and steph… we met at this great barn in chilliwack that i’ve been able to shoot at before, i don’t know if i’ve mentioned it before but i love barns…the more run down the better. i just see such beauty in old, rustic buildings.
we then trekked over the vedder river during golden hour…sigh:)and to up the ante of how cool these two are they agreed to have a chalk fight…so much fun!!!
i hope you enjoy a look at this engagement session and i cannot wait to spend my birthday with the two of you…


crystal and deb | whistler wedding | kerensa leigh

crystal is the owner of reddy made cakes and she is a superstar baker!! if you are looking for someone to create a beautiful cake for your wedding, anniversary or birthday you need to check her out!  deb works for the abby pd. these two are so great together and they are such fun to be around!

together with their friends and family they joined lives at the squamish lil’wat cultural center in Whistler this past november.  i absolutely love whistler…there’s just something about walking around the village that is so special. my parents have a time share up there so we try to go up regularly (which means once a year or two) and it had been quite awhile since we’d been and it just felt like home!

they decided to do a first look in front of the inukshuk and it was a lot of fun! I love feeling the emotion that the first look gives me. it’s one of my favorite parts of a wedding day! it’s kind of intense and great at the same time. we walked around the village and grabbed some fun shots.

the ceremony and reception we held at the cultural center in the round room! it was such a unique and beautiful location. the food was so good and the speeches were great! especially deb’s father…it turned into a roast and she maintained her composure and grace:)

thanks for choosing me to capture this special day for you two and i wish you all the best

allen and michelle | rustic chilliwack wedding | kerensa leigh

i’ve got a huge thank you to urban fig photography for keeping me busy through the fall:)

allen and michelle had a beautiful rustic wedding in chilliwack and i had the pleasure of being a part of capturing their day. once again the sun was in it’s glory and providing such great flares for us. and jete found this awesome barn that was falling apart and it was the perfect backdrop.

henna party | mission wedding photography | kerensa leigh

i had the pleasure of photographing a henna party! this is such beautiful art and i loved seeing these girls in action. i met kam close to 4 years ago when i photographed her second pregnancy, you can see it here, and so i was excited when her sister contacted me to be part of this pre wedding tradition.

the house was packed with family and friends, great food and lots of chatter.

i can’t get over the skills that the girls had while applying the henna. it was all free form and they were so quick!

Congrats to Kiran and Amar on your marriage and i wish you a happy life filled with lots of kids;)

daniel and laura | rustic abbotsford wedding photographer | kerensa leigh

daniel and laura were wed on daniel’s parents property and the amount of effort that laura, her family and friends put into all the details is astounding…the flowers were beautiful by quikpik, there were hay bails, cowboy boots, and tonnes of diy! laura’s dress was stunning and the bridesmaids all had different dresses making for a very unique look. the guys were in vests and denim which was perfect for this backyard rustic wedding.

i’ve gotta once again thank jete over at urban fig photography for asking me to be her “shooter two” as daniel and his groomsmen liked to call me…these guys were so fun to hang out with and they actually high jacked my camera for a little bit haha!
