After a week filled with rain the heavens opened and Lucas and Kaela's wedding day was sunny perfection. Set in Kaela's childhood home out in Chilliwack we were excited to take a break from the Vancouver scenery and embrace the country landscapes. Here's just a quick peek at yesterday's wedding goodness.
We think these photographs speak for themselves but for the sake of this qualifying as a real blog post here are just a few words.. We love taking photographs in our city with amazing couples who have insanely adorable pugs. This shoot just had the perfect recipe that produced some of my favourite photographs. Ever. I've already mentioned Porkchop, 'golden hour' lighting and a beautiful couple that no matter what crazy thing we told them to do were just so comfortable and natural with each other. It was a joy to spend the evening with you three and thanks for climbing into two separate but equally as questionable willow trees. I promise I won't make you do that in a wedding dress. We are so excited for your September wedding!
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.
All week we've been preparing ourselves for rain. Extra location scouting to find sheltered spots.. check. Buy extra umbrellas.. check. Then we wake up early Saturday to find the sun blinding me through our windows. We couldn't have asked for a more beautiful day. Everything seemed to fall perfectly into place for Scott and Allison's wedding day and I'm so excited to share these photographs with you. Stay tuned for more soon!
