Lac Le Jeune Wilderness Resort Wedding

Lac Le Jeune Wilderness Resort Wedding - Kristie Jean

It was a beautiful sunny day at the Lac Le Jeune Wilderness Resort for Tyson and Kelsey’s wedding. The bride looked stunning, the groom so handsome and the venue was so perfect.                 It is pretty special getting to be a part of one of my oldest friends weddings. Who knew that when we met back in grade eight 15 years later …

Weddings, Adventures and Life

Wedding, Adventures and Life - Kristie Jean

Summer is here and so are weddings…at least that is what it feels like at the moment. Lets talk weddings first. There are times when I can almost convince myself I am still 16, and then I end up at one of my oldest friends weddings as a bridesmaid/photographer, find out the day after that wedding that my best friend is engaged and did I …

A Weekend Away

A Weekend Away - Kristie Jean

There is something about waking up and not being able to pick up your phone and find out what is happening in the world first thing. There is something about not looking in a mirror for three days. No one cares what you look like, no one is in a hurry to do anything. Wake up, slip in to a swim suit, have breakfast with …

What Is The Best Camera Backpack?

famine camera backpack - Kristie Jean

What is the best camera backpack??? That is a never ending dilemma and in those moments when I want to throw mine out the window or am packing it going “I wish…” I have slowly planned out exactly what my ideal backpack would be like. As far as I know there isn’t a perfect one out there but a girl can always dream right? I …

48 Hours in Victoria

48 Hours in Victoria, BC - Kristie Jean

Okay this is going to be a bit of a long one, I took way too many photos and the title of this post is a little bit of a lie, we were on the island for more like 50 hours and only a short time was actually spent in Victoria, the rest of the time we were out in Sooke which is about an …

Currently - Kristie Jean

The last Currently post was posted back in January so I thought I would do a quick little update… Currently… Reading: I recently starting reading City of Bones by Cassandra Clare, which happens to be the first book in a series that has been turned in to a TV show. I haven’t got too far but so far so good! Eating: Dried pineapple….SO GOOD. It is pretty much …

Wells Gray Provincial Park Adventure

Wells Gray Provincial Park is somewhere I have been a few times, in fact Melody and I went there just last summer. It is in Clearwater BC, just an hour and a half from Kamloops. Most of the time when people think of Wells Gray they think of Helmcken Falls, it is the most well known waterfall in the park though only one of the …

The Little Things Gear List

Gear list - Kristie Jean

I have mentioned before the camera gear I pack when I go out on a photo adventure but I got thinking the other day about the little things that I always make sure I have in my bag that have nothing to do with photography. There is nothing worse then being out for a hike and being cold and uncomfortable. Instead of getting to the …

Mt.Baldy

Mt.Baldy - Kristie Jean

Mt.Baldy lookout trail…now this is a hike I would gladly do again. Melody and I arrived at the trailhead about 1pm kind of wondering where the trail went because we couldn’t see it from the car. All we could see was the trail kiosk. We sat in the car for a minute not quite ready to get out and put our heavy camera backpacks on …

10 Adventure Survival Tips

10 Adventure Survival Tips - Kristie Jean

Melody and I go for a hike or some sort of adventure nearly every weekend and without fail there is always something that comes up that we wish we would have remembered or done differently. It has become a running joke of wondering what is going to happen next, are we going to get lost, forget our jackets at home and be cold the whole time, …
