It’s year 4 of the sassiest little wedding show in town! Taking place this Saturday, Indie I Do is returning to Vancouver at the Heritage Hall. Woo! The show is co-produced by yours truly and our friends Andrea & Rob over at Lotus Events, and we’re excited for our fourth year.

Indie I Do is the perfect mix of DIY, local, and independent vendors that together, makes our show the must-go event for couples seeking a wedding with unique, personal style. With a focus on handmade, craft, fun, daring and maybe even a little edgy, Indie I Do promises to be an amazing good time for everybody involved in the wedding! A full list including more information about the event can be found here. In addition to our exhibitors, Indie I Do will host various guerilla style fashion shows and performances throughout the day by the Diva BoutiqueFrocksSamar and more!

Tickets are still available to purchase on our website (save $5) or at the door on the day of the event.

See you at the show!

The Best of Blue Olive 2011 Weddings

bop Wedding Photography 12 Comments

It’s officially 2012 and we’re already looking ahead and excited about all the new couples we get to work with this year (both those who’ve already booked and those we haven’t spoken with yet!). With a nod to all the best-of lists we see this week, we wanted to pull together some of our favourites from this past year. Favourite lists are so fleeting – this list would absolutely look different if I chose again another day – but these are all images I adore for one reason or another, and as of right now these are my top picks for our Best Of 2011 list!

The best part is looking at a photograph and remembering the moment so completely – what her laugh sounded like, the anticipation in the room, how a voice cracked when giving an emotional speech. These are the things that make the moment, and I hope you get a sense of that in each of these shots.

So, without further chatter on my part, here they are. Enjoy!

Happy Holidays!

bop Blue Olive Photography News Leave a Comment

Since I was little, it’s been a tradition in my family to give ornaments with the year and your name, and who gave them. It started with my Auntie Linda, and has grown to include my grandparents and other aunts and uncles. Decorating our tree is something I look forward to every year because every ornament is a memory, and a tradition I look forward to continuing for years to come.

Reilly and I are snuggled in at home with a beautiful tree, too much eggnog, lots of musical instruments and crafty things and empty inboxes. We’ll be keeping an eye on email over the next two weeks but for the most part we are so excited to simply enjoy the season!

Happy Holidays everyone! Hope you have a wonderful break with all of your family and friends

T&R’s Whistler Wedding

bop Wedding Photography 5 Comments

T&R were married in Whistler surrounded by close friends and family. I loved seeing how their faces would light up the second they looked toward eachother, and to say the day was magical would be an understatement!

The details set an incredible backdrop to the intimate wedding, with all the credit going to Sarah Shore and her team from Dreamgroup along with all the people at Upright Decor, Granville Island Florist, DJ Leanne, Greenscapes, Bearfoot Bistro, and the Uncommon Cake among others for a day that will be filled with incredible memories for this couple and those closest to them.

Here are 6 of my many favourites for photos from the day –
