engagement

Forget the guests & fancy clothes. The speeches and timelines. Have fun and get comfy with the camera. This is your wedding rehearsal… in jeans. Have fun and get awesome shots to add to your guestbook.

It was so much fun to be part of this surprise marriage proposal in Whistler! It involved lots of planning, making detailed diagrams showing Jon where to stand, secret texts back-and-forth, hiding in the bushes and waiting patiently. And it was so worth it! Jesse was genuinely surprised and she didn't even notice me snapping away. After she said yes, we wandered around Nita Lake Lodge and Alpha Lake for some photos of the newly-engaged couple. They were both beaming from ear-to-ear! They're planning a New Year's Eve wedding back at home in Toronto. I'm sure it'll be one hell of a party!   ...

We intentionally waited for fall to do this Vancouver engagement session, but then it rained and we had to reschedule.  Trying to catch the leaves before they were all gone, we finally managed to get together.  It turns out our timing couldn't have been any better - the fall colours were AMAZING! ...

Where have we been?
Where have we been?
Busy!  Not so busy that we can't keep up with our clients, but busy enough that our poor blog has been grossly neglected. So you might be wondering why this summer has been crazier than usual...For one thing, my little sister had a baby and I can't get enough of my new little nephew!  My sister's my best friend and she lives just up the street so I try to see them every day if I can. Another reason is all the training Tim and I have been doing.  I did my first half-marathon in June and Tim rode the Test of Metal ...

Tricia & Garth arranged an engagement session with us when they were visiting Whistler this summer to finalize the details for their winter wedding at Nita Lake Lodge. They're living in North Carolina and are planning a snowy destination wedding at their favourite ski resort!  I thought I'd share a slideshow since it's been a while... ...

We couldn't have picked a more beautiful spring day for this couple's engagement session.  We were so happy when the couple agreed to do a split session - part of the session took place around Whistler Village and we all went up Whistler Mountain for the rest of the session.  They were open to everything we suggested and even climbed a pretty steep slope for a dramatic snow and sky shot (5th photo down). Melanie and Nate are planning a fall wedding at Nita Lake Lodge.  The engagement photos will be featured in a guest sign-in book for all of their guests ...

Ali and Andy weren't originally sold on the idea of an engagement session, so we were super happy to hear from them when they contacted us from out-of-the-blue asking for a snowy session in Whistler!  Decked out in their winter wear, we walked around Whistler Village and found some great spots.  Being that it was just a couple weeks before the Olympics, we had to get some shots with their red mittens.  And who can resist a snowball fight...my bet's on Ali! We can't wait for their wedding this September on the Sunshine Coast! ...

We met this couple at Rob & Shannon's wedding this past winter. We were so excited when we heard about their engagement and that they wanted us to document their big day. Here are a few of our favourites from their session at Granville Island Market. There are so many great spots - we could have spent an entire day shooting! For more photos, check out the slideshow. . ...

When we first met Ange, she arrived on a super fun cruiser bike.  We were stoked when she said she wanted to include the bike in her engagement photos!  Tim and I brought our bikes too so we could cover more ground on the trails around the Squamish Golf Course.  Tim even did some action shots while he was riding his bike to add a sense of movement to the images - I'm just not talented enough to try to pull that off!  We can't wait for their wedding in Whistler which is less than a month away... ...

What a sweet couple!  They came up from the Lower Mainland for a couple's session in Squamish.  We were supposed to do it a few weeks ago as they had a romantic weekend planned in Whistler, but the weather didn't cooperate.  We had perfect weather in the end, but we did have an unfortunate encounter with swarming mosquitoes! ...

Maybe "Engagement Session" isn't the right term, since these two are already married!  They had a small wedding last summer but are planning a big reception for this June - a several course Chinese dinner, dancing and a whole lot of fun.  They didn't do an engagement session before they got married...but it's never too late! This couple was so much fun to work with - lots of laughs and they were up for anything.  We managed to catch the last of the cherry blossoms at Queen Elizabeth Park - what a gorgeous backdrop for a beautiful couple.  ...

These two were great sports, braving blizzard-like conditions for their engagement session.  It doesn't really feel like winter in Whistler if there isn't fresh snow on the ground, so we were grateful for all the white stuff.  We just wished it wasn't blowing sideways!  Here's a little peek at their engagement session... ...
