A world-class resort sitting prominently on Osoyoos Lake in Canada’s only desert, Spirit Ridge Vineyard Resort & Spa is one of Canada’s hot spots for wedding photography.

There are so many visual options to choose from, making each photography session unique. From the amazing earth wall of the NK’Mip Desert Cultural Centre to the endless vistas of Osoyoos Lake atop Sonora Dunes Golf Course and the barrel room & vineyards of NK’Mip Cellars, my biggest challenge is figuring out when to put the camera down!

The rooftop patio ┬áis an excellent place to have a wedding ceremony but be warned – this is the desert and it can be, well, really warm. It takes guts to wear a black suit in the heat of summer, let me tell you!

Getting ready photographs – an exciting segway to the ceremony

I often begin the day’s wedding photography with couples getting ready on site in one of the gorgeous adobe-style villas before the big event. The villas themselves have a bit of a Southwestern / Tuscan flare with cool fountains set into earth-toned courtyards.

Your creative photo session

Portraits or what I call the “Creative Session” usually follows the ceremony. Lots of congratulatory hugs, candid photos of family & friends and group shots look great on the rooftops as well but if there is time, I like to go onto the grass in front of the vineyard.

Please leave me a good hour or two to do the Creative Session photographs – I want to show you the full potential of Spirit Ridge, its amazing landscape-inspired architecture and the subtle colour palette of the Pocket Desert. This part of the South Okanagan is my old stomping grounds and I want to show it off!

Warm summer receptions

Begin your reception with a great dinner at Mica Restaurant (formerly Passatempo). I’ve seen some elegant design work done with cakes and table decor but whatever you do, the sunset views of Osoyoos Lake will add to the reception photography and enhance the warmth of your wedding experience.

Passionate staff tops the list!

Oh! I shouldn’t forget the staff who do wedding planning at Spirit Ridge – they are energetic, really organized and passionate about what they do. I’ve seen them pull many strings to ensure that weddings are more than what you’d imagine.

If you’d like more information about wedding photography at Spirit Ridge Vineyard Resort & Spa, be sure to give me a call. I’ll be happy to give you more than my two cents worth about this spectacular desert wedding venue.
