Every day, I wake up feeling so lucky to be able to do something I love. This is especially true when I get to capture moments for people who are dear to me. Chris and I first met at Camp Goodtimes almost 20 years ago (yikes, does that make us old??). We’ve stayed in touch over the years and I was so delighted when he approached me earlier this year to photograph his wedding this summer. A couple of weeks ago, Chris and Shannon were in town from Vernon, so we took the opportunity to do some engagement photos. It was so much fun to meet Shannon and hear about their plans for the future. Here’s a little bit of what I captured that evening.
We started off in Gastown. I love the old lamp posts and brick sidewalks. There’s just something about it…
From there, we headed over the Stanley Park. We were hoping for a beautiful sunset, but it wasn’t looking like mother nature was going to cooperate with us, so we went with what we had, and just hoped the rain would hold off.
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE how much fun they are having here.
A beautiful view, even if the clouds meant no sunset!
Isn’t the ring gorgeous??
After we finished up at the lighthouse, we decided to head for home… but as we rounded the corner at the Tea House… there was a break in the clouds and a beautiful sunset starting. So we stopped and I’m so glad we did.
These last two images are my absolute favourite from our session. The silhouettes, the sky, the rocks out into the water. All were just perfect.
Chris and Shannon, thank you so much for spending the evening with me. I had a blast and I hope you did as well. I’m so looking forward to the wedding in a couple of months. It’ll be here before we know it! With gratitude, Katrina
