We talk about it with our couples all the time, but we really love location scouting. Rain or shine we love any excuse to spend the day together exploring Vancouver, but the longer we're been photographers the harder it is finding places we're never photographed. Enter new challenge. Recently we're loved going to some of our favourite spots around Vancouver that we would normally just hang out and finding spots that we could use for photoshoot locations. It's been forcing us to view our surroundings differently and we're so excited with the results. Deep Cove has been one of those places that we're visited for many years, let's be honest, for the donuts and for the best deep-dish pizza place but never had we explored the forest and trails around it. Add in two gorgeous people and BANG. Magic. That's all I need to say, enjoy these.
I say this a lot, and I mean every word... the west coast is the best coast. We're seriously lucky to live in such a beautiful place. Vancouver has endless amount of beautiful parks and ocean-side retreats. We'll take any excuse to lace up our boots and go explore. Lighthouse park in West Vancouver is a relatively well known park but it was new to us. So braving wind and rain we were ready for an adventure. Brett and Jen and are getting married in a few short weeks at the Fraser River Lodge and so it's about time to revisit photographs from their engagement session.
I can't think of a better way to spend a morning then ocean-side, taking pictures and climbing rocks with friends. We don't often do early morning photo shoots but since we typically try to schedule portrait shoots during the week it gets dark so fast in the winter that the good light is right in the middle of the work day. Enter early morning sessions. And this one couldn't have been more perfect. It had been raining all week and just hours before we started the skies cleared and the sun came out. And let me tell you, trying to climb wet rocks is no easy task. It's a miracle no bones were broken. These two were game for pretty much anything and I'm so grateful, these photographs ended up being some of my favourite of 2014.
Listen up all you couples out there! Are you sick of the selfie profile pics or the super grainy and not-quite-in-foucus iPhone pics of you and your lover? Well I'm here to tell you that you don't have to be getting engaged or married to get a portrait session done! Get in touch and lets hang out and take some sweet pics together.
I've heard so much about Lighthouse park, but I've never had the chance to see it for my self. So when Jennifer suggested Lighthouse park I was excited. We love taking pictures in new places and if that new place happens to be some of the best Pacific Northwest scenery, it really doesn't get much better than that. Fall photo shoots can be tricky to plan. Here in Vancouver you're far more likely to get torrential downpour then any form of sunshine. literally minutes before we were suppose to start photographing, the heavens parted and the rain stopped.
Here's a little preview of todays amazing engagement photo shoot in beautiful Vancouver.
