Meet the Team
"Teamwork makes the dream work." - John C. Maxwell
We are Luminate Weddings, a photography duo based out of Vancouver, Canada. We are passionate about capturing your story with a style that is organic, modern, yet timeless and romantic. We believe in capturing the raw emotions and the moments as it was lived, as it was felt, and as the action unfolds. Our photojournalistic editorial style aims at telling wedding stories through fleeting candid moments and creative natural portraits that produce the truest of emotions, and the real expression of happiness and joy.
If my friends were to describe me, they would say I am a fun and outgoing person who enjoys spending time with my family and my fluffy samoyed dog named Luna. On my days off, you will find me making ice cream (because who doesn't like ice cream?) and playing basketball.
Photography has a played big part in my life and has allowed me to build a career out of it. For my clients, I believed in helping them capture the perfect "moment" that they can look back to for the rest of their lives. In my eyes, these perfect moments are capturing the raw emotions that are best found in laughter and in tears.
Photography has always been my creative outlet. In my spare time, you will find me editing photos, creating travel videos, or watching movies. I strive to see the world through a creative eye because doing so, it has allowed me to appreciate the little details that make this world such a beautiful place.
Wedding photography to me is so much more than just a job. I see it as a way that I can use my talents to be able to bless others with. It is an honor to be part of your life and wedding, and I hope that the work that we produce will give you the happiness that will last you a lifetime.
What the brides and grooms are saying…
We absolutely loved having Luminate Weddings be involved in our day. They managed our tight schedule very well and captured every moment we could have wanted. When working with Luminate Weddings we felt as though our vision and personalities were immensely valued. They provided the perfect amount of guidance throughout our wedding photos - they took charge and provided guidance when needed, but also knew exactly when to step back and capture the natural, candid moments and emotions of the day. We feel like we scored huge by trusting Luminate to take care of photography for our special day.

Luminate Weddings went above and beyond what we expected. Not only did the photos look incredible but they went the extra mile to ensure that we not only got the pictures we wanted, but more importantly that we got the pictures that we LOVE. 10/10 would definitely recommend!
