Anna & Paolo’s Elegant Fall Wedding

In the Summer, we love outdoor weddings. When the weather is warm, there’s nothing better than sun-lit ceremonies in open spaces, long alfresco dinners under the trees and dancing on a clear night under the stars. But, during the rest of the year we adore all the cosy, elegant, hip, urban, and off-beat indoor weddings we get to document.

Anna & Paolo’s was one of those perfect Autumn weddings. Cosy & elegant. A lingering multi-course meal. Jewel-toned details that made the grey day feel warmer and brighter.

If you love all things elegant, fabulous dinner parties, photos on roof-tops, adorable flower girls, and urban settings, you will love the story of Anna & Paolo’s wedding day at the Fairmont Hotel Vancouver. We had so much fun photographing it and I still dream of Anna’s amazing velvet shoes and the late-night pierogi bar.

Mica & Nate // Wedding

“The mountains are calling and I must go.” -John Muir

Married at the San Francisco city hall the year before in an intimate ceremony, Mica & Nate chose to venture abroad for their wedding. The mountains of Pemberton won them over and they gathered there with their friends and family from all over the world to celebrate.

This is a couple who has been through a lot. They have had their fair share of heartache from health troubles, but this post isn’t about the story of their struggle. This post is about a day that was so incredibly beautiful with a ceremony that brought everyone to tears and an absolute feast in the field by the mountain. This is about a celebration of love, of overcoming, of life. This is about two people who so deserved all the joy that surrounded them. This is about a husband who holds his wife in a way that makes her feel like she’s in the safest place in the world in his arms.

If you know Mica & Nate and their story as we do, you’ll share our feelings of deep gratitude and triumph that they were able to enjoy a day so rich with beauty and merriment. Breathe it in, friend.

Connection Shoots (are the best)

You’re engaged! Congrats–let’s celebrate! You’re going to love having some amazing portraits taken of you and your love in this season of life. A lot of couples opt for taking engagement photos to celebrate this season, but if that conjures up feelings of deep awkwardness and images in your mind of couples perching on top of logs and doing a weird leaning over kiss, don’t worry! We’ve got just the thing for you–our Connection Shoot.

This is our non-cheesy spin on the traditional engagement shoot and boy, is it fun. We’ve created our Connection Shoots with intention: we wanted to give our couples a chance to get comfortable with us and our cameras before their wedding day, get some fantastic photos of theirselves in their home/neighbourhood or somewhere special to them elsewhere, AND have the opportunity to connect and strengthen their bond as a couple. Life gets busy, wedding planning can be crazy, and we want to help our couples remember why they dived into all of this in the first place. A Connection Shoot is perfect for that. The photos you receive are natural, honest, and beautiful.

 

“…we felt like we fell in love all over again!” – Shauna & Jeremy

We aren’t putting our couples in cheesy or canned poses–we’re getting them to share and connect with each other. Sometimes we cosy up in your home and make waffles or take a morning stroll in your neighbourhood, other times we hike through the forest and mountains or hang out on the beach to catch the sunsrise or sunset. We always have a ton of fun together and all the awkwardness about having your photo taken is over in about 5 minutes. And then, when your wedding day rolls around you know that you are mega photogenic and that we’re awesome to hang out with–what could be better?

“Thank you so much for such a great day! You made us feel so comfortable and happy!” -Anna & Paolo

“I just wanted to send a quick note thanking you both for yesterday again. Seriously, I don’t know if you know how much your kindness and openness meant to me (and Andy).  I am not the best at having attention on me and have been worried about that a lot with the wedding. But after yesterday, I feel like a big weight has been lifted off my shoulders. You made us feel so amazingly comfortable and relaxed and you truly made it feel like we were spending the day catching up. Andy and I came home so excited about having both of you as part of the celebrations.” -Caitriona

Wow! Thank you so much- you are both magical photographer geniuses! We are so in love with them- you captured our personalities and the fun day perfectly- we cannot thank you enough.” -Meg & James

We hope you enjoyed a little peek into the magic of our connection shoots. If you’d like to see a few more examples, check out the Related Posts below!

And I’d choose you; in a hundred lifetimes, in a hundred worlds, in any version of reality, I’d find you and I’d choose you. -The Chaos of Stars

We are in the midst of a very lovely summer, documenting the most amazing people and celebrations. These two are from Kylie & Eric’s wedding at Rowena’s Inn on the River in Harrison Mills, BC–a brilliant day.

Your Bespoke Wedding Album

When you were a child, do you remember looking through your family’s photo albums? I do. Old black and white photos of my parents in their early twenties hanging out with their best friends, photos of my grandparents before their hair turned white, Mom in her wedding dress and my cousin the flower girl, standing next to her wearing a flower crown, family vacations–me, in an oversized Minnie Mouse sweatshirt with a high ponytail and my older brother sporting oversized glasses (apparently it was the thing to do in the late 80s/early 90s. So on trend). Every page from the past was magical to me. A window into something I’d never been around for or something I’d forgotten. My family history and legacy.

Will you let your wedding photos rot away on an online gallery or in a hard drive? If you want to truly enjoy and relive the incredible moments of love, beauty, joy and wonder that will unfold on your wedding day, our Bespoke albums are the perfect fit. We photograph your wedding day with an aim to tell the whole story–the views, the people, the light, the emotions. Truly, stories are best enjoyed in books, laid out on a page and held in your hands.

“There’s something special about preserving a shot in time. It fills my heart to know Bryce and I can look back in 50 years at our young selves in the album.” -Rachel

Your album will be an heirloom. Each one is custom designed to suit your personal style, printed on fine art matte paper with archival inks to last a lifetime, and meticulously hand bound. These albums are artworks.

We felt like albums were wasting away in the world, becoming a thing of the past.  But we both love going through our grandparents photo albums and learning their stories through the photos. Learning about all the people in their lives and connecting the dots on all the family stories you hear from various uncles and aunts. So, we made a deal with one another to create albums each year to document our lives. Our wedding album specifically sits on our coffee table, our guests enjoy it when they visit. And in the future our children will enjoy seeing all the stories from our lives past. We treasure our wedding memories and feel they are carefully represented in the quality of the album that the Nickersons produce.

You can’t print all your wedding photos, so the album was a great way to preserve and showcase more of the great moments from our adventure. It also allowed us to document in print all our loved ones who were present. – Rachel & Bryce

We LOVE our wedding albums. The large one we kept for ourselves is such a great memento of the day–we love re-living it so easily with our album. We keep it at our coffee table so guests, family, and friends can look through anytime. The parents albums were a highlight for us and our families as well. Being able to customize each one to each of our families was important and they LOVE them! -Alanna & Brandon

Our wedding albums are 10×10 inches with fabric, leather, and photo wrap cover options. Your parents can also order an album if they’d like, or you can gift them one of our super cute 6×6 inch mini albums so they can brag about you to all their friends.

Thank you so much for spending your time and effort on our custom floral design. It turned out amazing! We just got this in the mail today and we’re totally in love with it. – Duarte & Julie

Hey you guys! We had such a crazy week that we didn’t get a chance to let you know that we received our album and we are SO SO happy with it!!!!!! The cover is amazing, the photos are beautiful (we already knew that)… You guys have done such a fantastic job of everything, we are just blown away!! So thank you, thank you, thank you!!!  -Elise & Jon
