Meet the Team

Brad + Cassandra

We are a husband and wife, Kelowna photography team in LOVE….with each other, with our family & friends, with our career, with LIFE!

  • We are the proud parents to 3 amazing boys; Jayden, age 20, Tyson, age 18, and Weston who is 8 years old!
  • We are also blessed with 2 beautiful “daughters” as our older boys have wonderful significant others who have become a part of our family AND business!
  • We live in Kelowna, BC, and love the vast photo opportunities our incredible province provides us with
  • We are both full-time photographers and planners with Candid Apple Collective; we feel so blessed to have made a business and career out of something we both love so much
  • We photograph every wedding and engagement session together
  • We live, work, and hang out together…which would drive most couples crazy, but we honestly love being together…ALL the time…the fact that we’re still married is proof
  • We love camping, horseback riding, hiking, and fishing; you can be assured, if we aren’t photographing a wedding on a weekend, we’ll be outdoors SOMEWHERE
  • We love animals, which is probably why we have a farm full of all kinds
  • We love adventure and exploring new places, but we are always excited to be back home
  • We feel soooo awkward in front of the camera (although, we are getting more used to it), so we make it our duty to make our couples and families feel comfortable, natural, and beautiful (and handsome, of course)
  • We love to tell stories, and we want to tell yours from your Engagement Session to the tiniest detail of your wedding day, to your new teeny additions to your family…we know…one step at a time

Andrea & Cassandra


  • Andrea lives in West Kelowna with her husband of 23 years and their two teenage boys
  • She has over 17 years of experience managing simple to complex projects with an exceptional eye for detail, making her the perfect addition to our team
  • She studied Wedding Planning at BCIT
  • Andrea worked with Total Events ensuring client’s visions came to life seamlessly
  • Andrea loves the outdoors and explores this beautiful place she lives from the back of her horse, Candy, every chance she gets.
  • Best of all, Andrea is Cassandra’s closest friend.  They met over their love of horses more than 16 years ago; with boys close to the same age, their friendship grew over parenting woes & triumphs, horse adventures and so much more!

Paige + Jayden

  •  Paige & Jayden graduated in 2022 from Kelowna Secondary School.  Paige is taking online courses for Event Planning, and Jayden is attending Okanagan College, pursuing a Business Degree.
  • Besides Paige, Jayden’s love is Track and Field, particularly Pole Vault.  Paige has spent most of her years on the back of a horse, competing in both western and English events.  While she no longer has a horse of her own, she has shamelessly stolen Brad’s horse 🙂
  • Together, Jayden and Paige love camping, watching movies, road trips, and anything with family
  • With Paige and Jayden both having such a meticulous eye for the finer details, we could not be more pleased to have them join the family business
  • Paige works closely with  Cassandra & Andrea on Wedding Day Management duties while Jayden and Brad focus more on Set-Up and Take-Down duties.

Tyson & Emma

Tyson + Emma

  • These two have been inseparable for 4+ years.
  • Both Tyson & Emma excel in their sport of track & field, which is how they met; their relationship blossomed when they both qualified, competed and medaled in Nova Scotia at Nationals in 2019.
  • They are well beyond their years in talent, maturity and responsibility, even though they still so young!  We don’t take adding team members to our established brand lightly, but we are proud to have them!
  • Tyson & Emma both have career goals of cinematography and are pursuing  their studies at Simon Fraser University.  Track and field also brought them to SFU, where they are both on the NCAA track team.
  • They love animals and adventure.
  • Tyson has a 1995 Teal Ford Pick-up truck that he loves a little too much; he puts his all into everything, including sports, music, academics, and, of course, Emma.
  • Emma is super organized, is as humble as they come and aims for perfection in everything she does.
