debbie & matt; kootenays wedding photographer

Matt & Debbie choose Rossland for their destination wedding.  Matt's family has a second home for skiing at Red Mountain and Debbie has come to love the natural surroundings. They married beneath towering evergreens at the base of their favorite mountain.  I loved spending time with these low-key lovers.

fern and flower; kootenays photographer

When we walk slowly, the world can fully appear. 
Not only are the creatures not frightened away by our haste or aggression, 
but the fine detail of fern and flower, 
or devastation and disruption, becomes visible. 
Many of us hurry along because we do not want to see 
what is really going on in and around us. 
We are afraid to let our senses touch the body of suffering or the body of beauty.
