Raw Food w/ Chef Afke. Vancouver, Canada.

Edible British Columbia has moved, expanded and re-branded. Edible British Columbia is now Edible Canada located in the heart of the bustling Granville Island. Please come visit the retail space, fully licensed restaurant or attend one of the chef guided market dinners. The latest dinner was hosted by chef Afke Zonderland, who specializes in gourmet raw food cooking. Afke is not a purest when it comes to eating a raw food diet but she does eat a primarily raw food diet, especially during the summer months. She is such an wonderful and inspiring woman and her food is divine. For information on future chef guided dinners and other exciting culinary tourism events please visit

Kirsten & Evan's Wedding. Courtenay, Canada.

On July 23 2011 I had the distinct pleasure of photographing Kirsten & Evan's wedding on Vancouver Island. Their vows to each other were some of the most endearing I have ever heard and there were many wet eyes amongst the guests. I loved the blending of cultures evident throughout the days festivities, including an eagle feather woven into the brides bouquet, and drumming during the ceremony to honour Kirsten's Cree heritage. The reception was in the beautiful and newly renovated Native Sun's Hall. Speeches were heart warming, hilarious and honest. Since Kirsten and Evan are both musicians the live music for the evening was diverse and so so good. Congratulations to the newly weds! Best wishes to you both as you set out to Texas to start a new journey together.
