Harold & Alicia’s First Home » Abbotsford Real Estate Photographer

The real estate market in the Lower Mainland has been NUTS lately. Multiple bidding wars, homes selling before they hit Realtor.ca. This Vancouver listing sold for $250,000 over the asking price. It’s madness. And a huge opportunity for those wanting to sell. I’ve been dabbling in real estate photography lately, thanks to our amazing realtor, Verne Stel, Remax Realtor. It’s another avenue of interest for me plus I love to walk through homes.

This charming 5 bedroom rancher is over 2200 sqft and belongs to my brother-in-law and sister-in-law. Their home sold in less than 24 hours with multiple offers, above asking price, and the photos did not even make it onto realtor.ca. But they wanted photos of their first home as a keepsake.:)

Looks are deceiving. It looks like a small home from the outside, but actually it’s very spacious.

I always love a home where you open the front door and can see through to the backyard. Alicia has piles of wall galleries in her home. They are lovely to linger over while visiting. You’ll see…

Super wide angle shot gives you the sense of how the space is configured.

Alicia Louwerse - Karin!!! I love them. I’m tearing up just looking at them. I can’t believe in less than 3 months we will be moving on. Thank you for this amazing keepsake.

Harold & Alyson » Langley Wedding Photographer

The wedding day was during spring break because Alyson is a teacher. In fact, she is my son’s grade 2 teacher (and he simply adores her). This wedding truly boasted of this couples personality which made for a fun day even though it rained and rained and rained and rained. Alyson and Harold had selected a number of indoor / covered locations: the feed barn in Milner which included buildings with a Western facade, the coffee shop where H&A went on their first date (awww) and a boutique furniture store that has since closed its doors.

It was my pleasure, you two!
