Bali Travel – Ubud

Ubud is a traveller’s dream. The mix of culture and natural beauty here is like no other. Set in the hills of Bali, Ubud is surrounded in every direction by stunning rice plantations that have been cultured over so much time that they blend seamlessly in to the landscape.

The town itself offers so much visual stimulus that you can walk the loop of Ubud for days and every single time find something new to explore or do. There’s endless yoga, massage, cooking classes, traditional dances, shows, and more. Everyone in Ubud also seems to be very conscious of health and well being and you’ll find amazing cafe after cafe serving power smoothies and nutritiously delicious meals.

The thing I loved the most about Ubud however, is the spirit of the people. The religious expression of the Balinese is a unique version of Hinduism, where scripture and law are not necessarily of the same preoccupation as art and ritual are. Art and ritual are completely interwoven with their beliefs and their daily lives, which is very evident everywhere you go. Every Balinese person belongs to a temple and these temples are dispersed throughout the villages and the countryside where offerings are made daily to the ancestral spirits. It’s an absolutely beautiful thing to see.

Langley Wedding – Brianne & Kelly

Brianne and Kelly’s wedding took place right in the backyard of Brianne’s parents house. This beautiful property in rural Langley worked perfectly for their heartfelt day. Vows were exchanged on one side of the fence and then guests made their way to the other side where the reception carried out.

Kelly is my cousin-through-boyfriend and, living in a different city, I unfortunately don’t get to see this family too often; so spending the day with Kelly and Brianne, and their plethora of family and friends, was an amazing glimpse into their world that just beams with laughter, fun, and love. Congrats you two:)

Absolutely beautiful Ashlene!! Thank you so much for capturing the day – to a “T”!!! It was so much fun and your beautiful pics show that. Can’t wait to see all of them! Love from the mother of the groom!!!

Okanagan Wedding – Yasaman & Mark

Mark and Yasaman’s wedding was such a pleasure to shoot. With the help of family and friends, they transformed barren family land in Winfield, in the Okanagan of British Columbia, in to the perfect venue for a wedding. Overlooking the lake, they held two separate ceremonies, Western and Persian, to honour and represent both their cultures and family traditions. I had such a great time documenting their special day. Congratulations Mark and Yas!

The flowers and styling for this beautiful wedding were done by The Wild Bunch www.thewildbunch.ca

Thailand Travel – Night Markets

I’ve been reminiscing a lot lately on my travels to Thailand. I’m missing the delicious food, the carefree freedom of travel, and most of all I’m yearning to once again feel like a little kid who’s seeing everything for the very first time. I think I’m overdue for a faraway adventure… Here are some photos from the night market in Chiang Mai.
