Hi! We’re Brie, Reuben, Oliver and Daisy and together we make up VancityWild! We’re a west coast family living in Victoria BC, but our story really begins up in the mountains of Vancouver’s North Shore.
Back in 2015 when it was just Brie and Reub, we were both employed in the tech industry in Vancouver. Bonded by our passion for technology and the outdoors, we spent most of our free time exploring the trails of the North Shore and capturing our adventures on our iPhones. We were inspired! We weren’t hard core hikers or campers, but it occurred to us that Vancouver was full of people just like us – we thrived on the energy of big city life, but had a zest for adventure and often craved an escape to nature. We had the unique opportunity to show how exploring the mountains and trails in our own backyard could feel accessible to others from Vancouver and beyond, so why not share photos and details of our adventures on Instagram?
Thus, VancityWild was born! What was meant to be a small account sharing with friends, family and a few locals quickly grew due to the power of hashtags and social media. Before long we had amassed a small following and we began to explore and share more around the lower mainland. VancityWild became more than just an account, we became a community of like minded individuals all looking to bring a little adventure into our lives and inspiring one another to spend more time outdoors.
For almost a decade we’ve shared stories of our lives as a couple through VancityWild. From dating, to our mountaintop engagement, to our Hawaiian wedding and now – two kiddos later – VancityWild has evolved along with us. What started as an outdoor account sharing iPhone photos has developed into a brand for travel, home, lifestyle, family life, fashion, and so much more. We’ve since transitioned into full-time content creators and photographers and have worked with incredible brands from around the world. VancityWild has brought us around British Columbia, across Canada, through US National Parks, to Hawaii, Mexico and Europe, and that’s just the beginning! Our amazing, dino-loving son Oliver was born in 2018 and we quickly learned how to travel as a family, an entirely new and rewarding experience. In 2020 we moved our little family of three to Vancouver Island, and here we found our perfect slice of west coast paradise. In late 2022 we welcomed our newest addition, sweet Daisy June, and completed our VancityWild family. And now, here we are, wondering where VancityWild could possibly take us next! Thank you for learning a little bit about us, we’re so happy you’re here. Happy adventuring!
