Bodega Ridge | Galiano Island, BC | Sami + Andrew

Andrew and Sami first crossed paths in a busy club in Yaletown. Andrew, playing wingman for his friend, found himself stuck in a long line, only to later end up at the same spot as Sami and her friends. Despite the chaotic night, sparks flew when Andrew and Sami locked eyes inside the club. Their chemistry was immediate, leading to a night of unforgettable conversations.

Two days later, fate brought them together again through a Facebook friend request. After a month-long trip to Bali, Sami returned, and their love story began. From their first date, to moving in together, welcoming their fur baby Russ, and eventually Andrew’s heartfelt proposal, their journey has been a beautiful blend of adventure and romance.

I had the honour of photographing their wedding, meticulously planned by Sami herself. The location at Bodega Ridge on Galiano Island was perfect, blending Andrew’s love for the outdoors with Sami’s eye for design. The rustic yet trendy cabins and the breathtaking scenery made this the perfect venue to describe both of them equally. The overall vibe was modern, elegant romance with neutral tones of black and white, allowing the natural beauty of their surroundings to shine.

Throughout the day, there was an overwhelming sense of happiness from both Sami and Andrew, as well as their family and friends. Their wedding day was filled with so many moments of pure joy and love!
