My Favourite photos of 2016 by Ryan Deasley

After spending some time going through photos from the last year, I've decided to showcase a few of my favourite photos that I took in 2016. For me, it was a year of trying new things and building confidence in my own work. I'm very thankful for all of the people that were with me along the way and to this day drive me to succeed.


This image was taken at Whytecliffe park while on a morning photo mission with my buddy Spencer. Luck was with me on this day as the sky was a beautiful mix of pink and blue, with the tide at the perfect height for the image I had in mind. 


During the summer I assist weddings almost every weekend for another local photographer. While this has been a crucial part of my learning experience with weddings, it doesn't leave me a ton of time to hike. So, I learned to make time. Take this photo for example. My buddy Michael and I  set off to hike Mount Seymour and catch sunrise. Sounds like no problem right? Well, I was shooting a wedding the next day at 12. If this past year taught me anything, it was to not waste time, or make excuses when it comes to accomplishing my goals.

Amy and Don got married on a beautiful July day at Amy's grandparents' property in Squamish, BC.  It was the same home Amy's parents got married at , less than a week from their anniversary!

Buntzen Lake

On a drizzly overcast day I went out to a local photography hotspot, Buntzen Lake. While I didnt get the shot that I had originally gone out there for, I managed to get this shot which I was really happy with!


 In Mid October, Mac and Torrie tied the knot on a drizzly fall day during their short Queen Elizabeth Park wedding. Thanks to a lucky break in the rain we were able to capture some amazing colours in the
many garden areas.
