Los Angeles to Vancouver // The Scenic Route

This trip to Canada has been in the making for two years, I just didn’t know Canada would be the destination. Two years ago, a group of wedding photographers who only knew each other via the internet met in person at Las Vegas – WPPI. We had all become close friends and we hoped to do it again. It was exactly like summer camp.  Canada Photo Convention would be the ticket, plans were set in motion and an epic road trip would be the outcome. These photos from the trip are just a reminder of the memories shared with amazing friends.

Many thanks to Len, Dani, Bec, Brit, Xanthe, Leo, Rhys, Sam, NickMatt and everyone else at Canada Photo Convention who made my time in Vancouver unforgettable. <3
