vancouver wedding photographers – hyperfocus photography » wedding photography as unique as you are

Several months ago, Kelsey + Andrew came by to pick up their wedding album. Sure, it was a super rainy, winter Vancouver day outside, but inside we forgot about it all, and simply enjoyed reliving their summer sunny wedding day in their beautiful and elegant wedding photo book. It was also a really lovely visit, as they shared with us many of the reasons why they chose us to be their wedding photographers. Hearing that they felt they had received great value for all our hard work, passion and creativity, while blending in with their family personalities and capturing their wedding photos that they love so much, was so great to hear. It was our pleasure!

This was one very, very wet and rainy Vancouver engagement photo session.

Bessie and Eddie were cosy under their umbrella, as they should have been. Snuggling and enjoying each others company is certainly a nice way to spend with with your hubby/wife To-Be. We were however well prepared for rain and Justin and I got poured down upon and gleefully muddy. Normally we’d have rescheduled their engagement pictures, but since we were all there and their wedding was fast approaching, we thought let’s see how we do with this weather, it is Vancouver after all, and embrace the rain! And it all turned out great!

We spent most of their engagement photo session in Crab Park and enjoyed the serene space and calm park, despite being right in downtown Vancouver.

As luck would have it, we met these two for their Vancouver engagement photo session in Gastown, only minutes after a torrential downpour. Had we started even 15mins earlier, we’d have all looked quite soggy and less awesome! But like I said, we were lucky and had a dry and lovely casual photo shoot with Ilana and Scott one evening a week ago. Here is a little peek from their session, which was taken only about a block away from where they had their first date ever. 🙂

Having a deep love for photography is something that we often take for for granted.

Sometimes, however it really comes to the forefront when we work with our clients.

For example, when other professional photographers hire us to photograph their wedding, it is fun for them (and us) to share in the technical aspects of our craft. Other times it comes up, is when we like to take some time to enjoy something a little photographically different- like doing part of an engagement session with one of our favourite film cameras- in this case a 120mm format Rolliflex twin lens camera.

It is a camera that is incredibly famous within the world of professional photography for everything from fine art photography, fashion photography, to wedding photojournalism and many more areas. Here are a few of those famous photographers, if you were curious check them out: Helmut NewtonImogen CunninghamDavid BaileyBill BrandtWalker EvansVivian MaierIrving Penn.

Justin took a few frames of film while we were with Nicole and Chris for their Vancouver engagement photo session, which was a really fun experience to share with them.

With the few dry days we’ve had this Winter and Spring, it’s meant a lot of rainy photo shoots these days, but that’s just fine with us being professional Vancouver wedding photographers (plus we also had our business in rainy Manchester, England complete with the sideways torrential rain of Northern Northern England!).

When Nicole and Kris arrived into Vancouver to have their Vancouver engagement photo session with us in the Olympic Village, of course, it was raining. Since they were only in town for a few days, we went ahead with their session and made the most of it with a few lucky breaks in the rain. It was so lovely to meet them both for the first time, get to know them a bit and hear about the plans they have for their wedding this summer at Camp Howdy, which we are really looking forward to.
