These two got off a red-eye from Hawaii and then met me in Steveston that evening for their engagement photos! Not only were they shockingly awake, but they totally rocked this shoot; from chasing the light with me, to knowing exactly how to make each other laugh. So excited to shoot their big day next June!
Cecil and Bethany said they wanted to go to Barnston Island for engagement photos and at first, I assumed this was some far away place on the Sunshine Coast. When I googled it, I was shocked to find it was only about 20 minutes away from my own backyard. It is about a 3 minute free ferry ride and is the most wonderful place! We only ran into two other cars and felt like it was our own private island. There were beautiful beaches, trails, and huge fields. The best part, however, was this incredible family of three!
I loved the way Liv looked up to her parents and wanted to copy her mom everytime I asked her to dance. As I watched Cecil and Bethany pose for the photos, I was thinking that the greatest gift parents could ever give their child is showing them just how much they love their spouse. Liv has loads of photos that will remind her just how much her parents love each other and clearly delight in her!
So excited for their wedding day and thankful to have had such a wonderful summer evening with such a great family!
I always get excited when clients say they want to have their shoot at Lighthouse Park as it is such a beautiful spot! Nicole and John were troopers climbing around the rocks and hiking down trails to get the perfect shot. I always love when you have a couple who can make each other laugh instantly and seem to be enjoying being together so much that they don’t even notice they are getting their picture taken…it’s the best!
Pitt Lake is an ever-faithful photo spot that is one of my favourite backdrops. No matter how many times I shoot there, I still find myself feeling inspired by both the beautiful nature around us and the new couple in front of me. Taylor and Rebekah were a blast to hang out with; they could make each other laugh and so clearly love being together. So excited for their big day this summer!
