Christine and Jonathan: Gastown Engagement Session

Sunday, 4 August 2013

Gastown, Vancouver: What a fun place to shoot Christine and Jonathan’s Engagement session. I’d met the both of them almost a year earlier at Heather and Mike’s wedding, where Christine was the maid of honour. So it wasn’t too long after that wedding when Jonathan popped the question to Christine, and I was incredibly honoured to be asked to photograph it. I’d had a great time at Heather and Mike’s, so it was really cool to go into something where I’d gotten to know the couple already! Here are a few from the session, wedding to come asap!

Heather and Mike: UBC Museum of Anthropology Engagement Session

Sunday, 26 August 2012

Vancouver gal originally from Hong Kong meets Midwest guy in Indiana. They fall in love, she learns to go ATV’ing and fishing, and they get married. That’s Heather and Mike’s story in a nutshell. Even though they’re currently living in Indiana, they contacted me because they were having their ceremony at the Tea House at Stanley Park in Vancouver, which incidentally is where I proposed to my wife, so I was really excited about shooting their wedding. We had the engagement session at the Museum of Anthropology just a few days before their wedding. Mike had just arrived in town that day, talking about a crammed schedule!

This was a fun outing, where I used my brand-new Canon 5D Mark III + 50/1.2 lens alongside my workhorse Nikon D3x. Both gave spectacular results. More to come on their wedding soon…

Katherine and Adam: Spanish Banks Beach Engagement Session

Wednesday, 13 June 2012

Katherine and Adam are getting married this August. We had a fun engagement shoot down at the beach at Spanish Banks with the really low tide as a fantastic bonus. This reminded me again why I love engagement shoots not only as a fun way for all of us to get to know each other better, but also to pass on some great posing tips so you automatically look great on the wedding day and in any other photos forever!

Adam’s going to use his graphic design talents to create the invitations using a few pictures from the session. I can hardly wait to see what they look like, and to shoot their wedding down at Granville Island in just a few months.
