Rachel & Sam Whonnock Lake Center | Vancouver Fraser Valley Wedding / San Diego Destination Wedding

I have known Rachel her entire life. Sam? I met sam 10 months ago. Rachel lived in British Columbia and Sam lived in Utah. How did they meet? On a dating app. The even crazier part? After chatting online and on the phone for hours over a two week period Sam made the adventurous decision to road trip up to Canada to meet Rachel. After many flights back and forth, Rachel moved down to Utah to go to school. Living under an hour away from Sam they spent the weekends together and come the fall Sam popped the question. Getting married around school breaks are never easy so January 2, 2020 became the start of their forever. From rain on reception day to crazy sunshine and wind on wedding day they had just about everything but snow for their photos! Beautiful greenery in BC and gorgeous sunsets of San Diego these two had it all.

As the Bride's sister naturally I as able to do her photography and videography. Trying to shoot both was for sure a big under taking and I probably wont do it again without a team but I am happy with how it turned out despite my balancing troubles of video and photo!
