It’s a treat to asked to shoot a wedding, and especially so when you know the person asking is also a professional photographer. This past month I was asked to fly out to Vancouver to capture a wedding for Belle & Shaun on Valentines Day. I love being back on the coast, having called both Victoria and Vancouver home for the better part of 6 years, and to be there to shoot for such a fun couple made it even more special. I really wanted to reflect their energy in the images I captured as well as the locations picked to shoot – the combination of which is found below. I couldn’t believe how quickly the day went by, and how natural they were in front of the lens. Being there to witness their beautiful wedding, strong religious foundation, and love for each other was something I will cherish! Hot off the press – their beautiful wedding video is now online.
When Meghan & Brad hinted that they’d be in Vancouver and up for a coastal engagement session, I jumped at the chance. I used to live on the west coast, and it still holds a close place in my heart. Saturday morning, with rain clouds threatening, we met up under the neon sign leading on to Granville Island. It’s a pretty amazing place for those of you unfamiliar, and has one of best covered markets in Canada. We hopped a few rain puddles, hid inside some parking garage warehouses, and had a few laughs along the way. Working with Meghan & Brad was such a treat, and a perfect warm up for their wedding later this summer.
From the first time I heard Mike talking about Lindsay, and the way he described this amazing woman, I knew she was the one. His eyes would light up whenever he mentioned her. I first met Lindsay while in Vancouver some time ago and immediately knew how much she meant to him. They have a great connection and it was a treat to spend some time with them during a recent shooting trip to the west coast. Their wedding in Jamaica later this year is going to be a blast!
