The 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics.  Such a busy, yet wonderful festive time to be in Vancouver.  In between attending some of the Olympic events, Helena and Michael held a small and intimate wedding celebration at his parents' house near Horseshoe Bay in West Vancouver with about 18 of their closest friends and family in attendance.

And what a beautiful setting it was!  The house is built into the side of the cliff and amidst the multiple levels of balconies and access to the waterfront we had a most memorable and enjoyable celebration.  The couple live in Geneva, and held the wedding back in Vancouver for the benefit of the friends and family that couldn't make it out to Ravello, Italy, where their white-dress wedding is going to be held.  So this was also a reunion of sorts for friends and family.

They're now back in their home in Geneva planning their Italian wedding for June -- too bad I already had a prior commitment for that date..arrgh! :(  All the best, guys!

Michael popped in during the makeup to steal a quick kiss:

Helena had to make a tough choice on what to wear as her wedding dress wasn't going to be ready in time for Vancouver, but she made a great choice!

Gorgeous setting overlooking the water.  Shades in February?  Only in Vancouver of course!

It’s always great fun to meet up with a couple willing to have fun on an engagement shoot – a chance to have fun, to get to know each other, to understand the photographer’s approach, and to pass on a few wedding tips and ideas. On this engagement shoot with Amy and Michael, I picked them up and drove around in style in the Porsche to three different places around the Lower Mainland.

I figure the term "inkjet" evokes the wrong image in the minds of consumers, specifically low-cost home printers, which are notorious for costing less than the cost of ink to refill them, and this association seems to compel marketers to substitute terms like "dry printing", or in fine art printing circles, the term "giclée".

When we checked our GPS coordinates later, we were able to locate the hill as being across the river from Tam Tong, about a kilometer away as the crow flies. We had nearly overlooked the fact that Yeuk Lee would have likely been the first one in the grave site and all his relatives would have been buried with him.
