A quintessential Vancouver engagement shoot complete with city views, water, industrial walls, vines and all the beauty Olympic Village has to offer.
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.
If you've been following us on Facebook or Instagram, you would have noticed us sharing vague images of our new studio. I thought it was about time I took some real photographs and posted a legit preview of the studio. We're in the home stretch now. Final details like hanging pictures and art, making signs and all that fun stuff. We're hoping to have our doors officially open in the next week or so. I can't wait to meet with our brides and grooms or for our first photo shoot in our very own studio space.
If you want to have a look, or just pop by for some coffee or tea, just send me a message and let's set something up! And to all you Vancouver couples, come on by and lets talk about your wedding!
I'm used to shooting during sunset, in fact, I try to do anything humanly possible to schedule our shoots during that magic hour. Today I got to photograph an amazing couple during magic hour 2.0 - sunrise. I couldn't be happier with how these photographs are turning out. It also helps having two gorgeous people who look like they just stepped out of a Pendleton advertisement as your subjects. We climbed rocks, we slipped on rocks, we saw seals, we laughed, we talked, and we took pictures. My heart is full, I wish every day could start like this one. Here's a little preview of Logan and Ashley's portrait session.
