Got a DSLR as a mother’s day gift

Wayyyy back then, it was trendy for new moms to get DSLR cameras. I guess the thinking was that an expensive camera would result in nice photos of our cute kids. Kinda… with time and practice.

Shot my first wedding!

I spent a lot of time on YouTube, learning how to use my new camera, and ended up being asked to snap a lot of my friends’ babies.  From there, it steamrolled right into forming a business, and 1.5 years later, shooting my first wedding!

Workshop in San Francisco

As this photo thing was taking off, I decided to invest in some formal education. Ben & Erin Chrisman are an unbelievably talented husband and wife team, so I took their workshop in San Francisco. It was life and business changing.

June 2015
Launched a photography workshop
I’m an entrepreneur at heart, but terrified of public speaking. My bff Charlene and I worked together to create “FOCUS Workshops”! These were an amazing success, and I am so thankful to have a friend who pushes me and is my biggest cheerleader!

May 2017
Shot my first “destination” wedding 
Erin, the bride, was a graduate of our workshop, and asked if I would come up to Smithers, BC, to shoot her special day. Well, I love travel and I love shooting in new places — so it was a done deal.

Went to Canmore for the Two Mann workshop

Finally got the chance to attend Two Mann Studios’ in 2018 workshop, after chickening out a couple years back. Another incredible experience!

Shot my first non-Canadian wedding in Maui

What a dream. I’d vacationed in Maui a few times but getting the opportunity to shoot Kevin & Kirst’s wedding there was unbelievable!

Shot my first celebrities
While in Maui for Kevin & Kirst’s wedding, I saw on Instagram that Jared & Ashley I were there as well. So I reached out to them and asked if they wanted a photoshoot. They did! So. Much. Fun.

Shot my first international wedding in Mexico

I met Jenny when networking. We totally hit it off, chatted for quite a while, and the next thing I knew I was shooting her wedding in Mexico! Such an incredible trip. More travel please!

Celebrated 10 years in business!!
Well, given the pandemic, I didn’t actually celebrate, but the date rolled by…! Although I did get to do an amazing photoshoot with my buddy, Will Pursell, which was cool.

MEET THE TEAM

Jete (rhymes with Pete) is Urban Fig’s founder by day; wife and mom by night. She’s a spontaneous, creative spirit – totally dedicated to her craft. By her own admission she kinda stumbled into wedding photography, and decided it’s pretty much the best career path ever. Since she doesn’t do anything halfway, her aim is to ensure your entire wedding photography experience is amazingly awesome from start to finish. But her work doesn’t end there. She sees the bigger picture. She wants to capture every image from your wedding – the sights, the sounds, the people – and hopefully make you cry. Even 10 years later. Because if, through her photographs, she made you cry, then she did a bang-up job for you. Win win.

Rhianna is our OG associate, joining the ranks in 2018. She is head of marketing at two local companies as her 9-5, so having a side hustle creative outlet is light relief for her. This girl is literally sunshine in human form. She is punctual, hard working, and has just the right amount of sass to fit right in on the team. Plus she’s a major dog lover (so bring allllll your furry friends), a foodie, and drinks iced coffee like it’s her day job. Though not on her resume, her boutonniere pinning skills are second to none (an incredibly valuable skill set to have accessible on your wedding day)! She’s also the best hype girl, and given the chance, will be rocking your reception dance floor!
