I'm Kimberley Kufaas, a wedding photographer, an artist, a story teller. I was born and raised on Vancouver Island, BC where the beauty around me when I step out the door is inspiring for my passion for photography.
I adore connection and romance, which has placed me here with a passion for capturing those moments. I'm forever searching for hidden gems and pretty light. I love when couples fully trust me when I tell them I've found the most epic location and no questions asked, they are along for the adventure.
Choosing one shoot to blog might just be the most difficult thing to do so I've chosen this west coast stylized shoot. This duo is amazing to photograph, not just because they're gorgeous but especially for their mad love for one another. They're good friends of mine and I had photographed their wedding in 2014.
This stylized shoot was shot at San Josef Bay west of Port Hardy, BC. This little gem is close to my hometown and a favourite beach to visit as a child.
The evening before the shoot my model and good friend Lucy and I sat down and made her flower crown. We made the crown out of cedar picked from her backyard. With Lucy and I being first nations from the Kwagu'ł territory we felt using cedar was special. Cedar has been used for healing, purification and for spiritual protection. Its spiritual properties are supposed to promote peaceful thoughts and help interpret messages from the inner self.
The drive out to this beach and hike is a days commitment. We drove through snow and on a logging road for about 2 hours and hiked 45 minutes on Boxing Day. It was below freezing, but if I didn't tell you I'm sure you wouldn't have guessed!
