Authentic + Intimate Brix & Mortar Wedding

Michelle + Hernán

The last wedding of 2019 was a perfect one with Michelle + Hernán over the long weekend hosted at the beautifully authentic and intimate Vancouver wedding venue, Brix & Mortar located in Yaletown.

I love shooting at Brix & Mortar because the unique backdrop and the exposed brick makes for an idyllic location for intimate weddings. Once you walk through the curtains you’re transported into a rustic but elegant courtyard illuminated by seven-tier glass chandeliers. The glass-covered courtyard is perfect for holding intimate weddings like this one for Michelle and Hernán.

I’m deeply grateful for every couple this year that allowed me to be a part of their day, connect with their friends and family and document one of the most important days of their lives.

This year has been special.

I’m so excited to work on my new website and enter 2019 with refreshed perspectives and awareness and continue to deepen my craft as a wedding photographer.

Bring it on.

Huge thanks to everyone involved in this wedding that made it so special … and to Michelle + Hernán, thank you again for choosing me as your wedding photographer to capture your story at the beautiful Brix & Mortar in Downtown, Vancouver.

My partner and I could not be more thrilled to have worked with Sachin as our wedding photographer. The ease with which he works and communicates suited our style perfectly. He easily adapted to any situation and captured the vibe and aesthetic of our wedding perfectly. We would absolutely recommend him for anyone looking for a photographer!” - Hernán (Groom)

I caught up with Hernán and Michelle  recently and they shared the following with me.

Hernán and Michelle's favourite memory from your wedding day ..

Our favourite memory was our first look! It was such an intimate moment, a moment where we looked at each other and, without needing to say vows out loud or in front of anyone, committed to each other. We had our private and personal moment, and after that the rest of the day was about celebrating with our loved ones! 

On what advice they would give for future couples on their wedding day .. 

Find at least one moment where it is just the two of you (and your photographer!). It might be a first look or it might be sneaking away for mid-dinner photos - whenever or whatever that moment it is, it will be one of the few in the day that is just for you. 

On what they loved about Brix & Mortar .. 

We picked Brix & Mortar for its ease - it didn’t need to be decorated, it could accommodate both the ceremony and reception, we didn’t need to organize transportation for guests (due to its easy accessibility), and we could walk down the block to a hotel at the end of the night. 

And some great advice for future couples in preparation of their wedding ..

Pick a wedding planner and a photographer who have the type of energy that you want to be around day of. For us, it was important to have a team that gave off a calm, positive energy but who we knew would be on top of everything that was happening. That is exactly who we picked and it paid off - there was not one moment of stress for us on the day.

Congratulations Michelle and Hernán!

I always love photographing weddings at Brix & Mortar, it has the perfect courtyard and is perfect for an intimate Vancouver wedding ceremony and is beautifully decorated with a fabulous space for a reception. I would absolutely jump at the chance to shoot here again. If you’re getting married or know someone who is and you like what you see above, then please get in touch via the contact form or by emailing me at I’d love to get to know you and hear more about your Brix & Mortar wedding photography and your big day!
