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.

Freya and Philip’s: Jericho Beach Engagement Session

Saturday, 9 July 2011

I love engagement shoots as a way to get to know the couple, and for them to get an idea of how the photography will go on the wedding day itself. Freya and Philip were an incredibly energetic, fun couple to shoot with and totally got into the relaxed, natural type of posing I like to do. They asked for a fun, unconventional shoot by the beach and they got one! Here are some of the photos:

Amy and Michael: Vancouver Engagement Session

Sunday, 30 May 2010

It’s always great fun to meet up with a couple willing to have fun on an engagement shoot – a chance to have fun, to get to know each other, to understand the photographer’s approach, and to pass on a few wedding tips and ideas.  On this engagement shoot with Amy and Michael, I picked them up and drove around in style in the Porsche to three different places around the Lower Mainland: The Richmond Olympic Oval, Kitsilano Beach, and Gastown.  I’m definitely looking forward to their wedding in late June!
