January 2nd and we're already kicking off the 2016 wedding season. We couldn't have picked a better couple to spend this perfect Saturday with. The cold, blue-sky winter day covered in a veil of fog provided the perfect scenery for our lovely bride and groom. Its rare we get to shoot wedding day portraits in the fog. And these two brought a glam element that words don't really do justice. You just need to look at these.
We turn into toddlers who've been let loose in a candy store when we get to take photographs during golden hour. Yesterday, by far, was the best lighting we've had all year for bride and groom portraits. Gavin and Chrissy couldn't have picked a better time of day to have their wedding over looking the ocean at the Stanley Park Tea House. And to sprinkle more amazingness on the day, Chrissy wore a stunner from Truvelle. So excited to share more photographs, but for now here is a little peek into this wonderful wedding.

I dare you to come up with a venue that shows off the beauty of British Columbia better then the Fraser River Lodge in Agassiz. I could stare at those mountains for days. Today's wedding was like no other. I'm sure we experienced every kind of weather pattern imaginable. Sun, Rain, Hail, Wind, Mist and a double rainbow to finish off the day. Yet somehow, it would clear up just when you wanted it to. I wasn't the only one who couldn't get enough of that epic mountain. I could start a book of wedding guest selfies taken at Brett and Jennifer's wedding. In fact, this should be a thing... Listen up Instagram, you should let users print images from #hashtags instead of just the images from their own account. Personalized wedding hashtags have become quite popular, so how great would it be if the bride and groom could print off an artifact uprising mini book complete images of how your guests experienced your wedding? This is the next big thing and you heard it here folks!
In the mean time, I'm excited to share a little preview of this beautiful wedding! Enjoy.
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.
Thinking back to this amazing wedding, my mind automatically goes to their ceremony. I’ll never forget the vows these two wrote for each other. Nothing else mattered and for that moment, the room was empty except for two spirits who stood together and shared the deepest feelings of their hearts. I distinctly remember kneeling in the middle of the isle taking deep breaths, with a camera glued to my eyes, to make sure I didn’t start ugly crying right in the middle of their wedding. It was such an honest, heartfelt and beautiful moment. Among one the many reasons I love being a wedding photographer one of my favourites is getting to look back at the images we’ve captured and being immediately taken back to the moments in time they represent. I know I’ll forever treasure these. Sean and Berkley, thanks for inviting us into your love story. Thanks for having us be a part of your amazing Vancouver wedding. I’m excited for you guys and your new adventure from bride and groom to husband and wife.
