Parksville Wedding | Tanya & Nate | Brodie Frehlich Wedding Photography

September 21, 2018

Tanya & Nate were guests at Tanya’s cousin Kaila’s wedding up in Tanya’s (and my own) hometown of Smithers, BC, back in 2015, where I was the photographer. Almost all of the people I get to work with find me in such a way, and it’s always a bonus to have a bit of familiarity […]

Vancouver Island wedding and engagement photographer

Brodie Frehlich Engagement Photography | Rose & Ian | Parksville & Cathedral Grove

February 7, 2017

I met with Rose and Ian on a cool, sunny day in January just after noon. The sun rose as high as winter would allow but hung low in the sky. Rose and Ian bought me a coffee and spoke of how they lived for some time in the area and used to bring their dog […]

Brodie Frehlich Wedding Photography | Galiano Island | Marina & Michael

December 7, 2015

Marina & Michael were married on a very hot, sunny July day on Galiano Island, just off the west coast of B.C. Much of the day’s events took place at Bodega Ridge Resort, a very nice and rustic resort that rises up and overlooks the blue-green waters off the northwest of the island. Preparations took place at […]

Brodie Frehlich Wedding Photography | Smithers, BC | Kaila & Josh

October 17, 2015

The clouds filled the valley that mid-July day and cut the harsh afternoon light that had threatened the day before. Kaila and Josh grew up in the Bulkley Valley but have since moved south. I also grew up there before moving south and was delighted to make the trip up to photograph their wedding. I joined Kaila, her bridesmaids, and a […]

Mt. Arrowsmith - May 2015

Mt. Arrowsmith, BC

May 29, 2015

Although certain events left a damper on the day, we had quite a nice hike and camp up Mt. Arrowsmith last weekend. It was a nice, sunny climb up. A helicopter circled around the range a few times shortly after we reached our camping spot, above the saddle between Mt. Cokely and Mt. Arrowsmith. The rain started […]

Landscapes – 2014 – Yukon to Oregon

January 18, 2015

I was lucky enough to get up to some pretty great adventures in 2014. I’ve been going through last year’s photos and decided to put together a small collection of landscape shots from those adventures. In early May I was driving from Calgary to Smithers and took this shot just off the highway. Later on, in […]

Engagement Shoot – Rebecca & Ian

January 10, 2015

At 7AM on a brisk November morning, I met up with Rebecca & Ian, guests of a previous wedding I’d photographed, at McNeill Bay. They got engaged on another early morning at this very spot. Following the sunrise, we enjoyed a tasty breakfast at one of Rebecca & Ian’s favourite brunch restaurants, John’s Place on […]

Hudson Bay Mountain

Hudson Bay Mountain | Smithers, BC

September 17, 2014

Since I was but a puny four year old rapscallion I have gazed up in awe from the Bulkley Valley to the peaks of Hudson Bay Mountain in my hometown of Smithers, BC. Just last month I had the opportunity to climb for the first time up to one of it’s mighty peaks and sign what is known as “the […]

Juan de Fuca

Juan de Fuca Trail

August 15, 2014

I recently hiked along the Juan de Fuca trail – a nice 47km stretch of trails along the south coast of Vancouver Island – over four days with some good friends. There is quite a lot of variation in the terrain, including sandy and stony shores, boulder fields, sheer rock beaches, trails along shore-line cliffs, steep ravines, […]

Smith Rock, OR

Smith Rock, OR

August 8, 2014

During a recent trip to Portland, Oregon, I got the chance to swing down to Smith Rock Park for a quick camp and a climb. Two things I learned: 1) Outdoor climbing is quite fun 2) The Oregon desert in late July is very hot. Most of the professional climbers stay clear of the area […]
