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

 

His/Hers.

Justin and I are both primary photographers and have been photographing wedding for 15 years now. Wow, how time flies by!  We find it’s always so interesting to show our clients what either of them was up to in the moments before they were married. For every couple it’s always so unique as to how nervous or not at all, excited or calm they may be, and also who they have chosen to be there with them at this special and poignant time. Today, we thought we’d share a few with you from Kate and John’s wedding in the getting ready portion of their day. While Justin was with John and his groomsmen taking photos, I was with Kate at her mom’s house with her girlfriends, getting ready before their wedding ceremony.

I love the way Justin photographed John reflected in the glass of this family heirloom. It’s a framed photograph of his grandfather in WWII and his maroon barret and a medal of honour.

When we can, we always like to choose meaningful photo locations for our couples, someplace they have a connection to. So when Elizabeth and Alfonso suggested just one spot, I knew it was going to have heaps of meaning for them! They chose New Brighton Park for their engagement photo session because it has special meeting to them as a couple and (this is so neat), they both played in this park as children, coming here with their families. And over all those years, they don’t believe they ever met! I just loved this story when they told us, thinking of the possibility that they may have met as kids, and if not back then, but that their paths were meant to cross as adults. We are looking forward to photographing their wedding this August.

Mike lives in Seattle and Natasha lives here in Vancouver and they are always travelling back and forth over the border. So when she suggested having their engagement session at the Peach Arch Park, we just knew it was the absolute perfect place for it! Perfect!

The only thing was the weather!

It was a rain-on, rain-off again kinda day and we were all so close to changing the location, but in the end we kept our eagle eyes on all weather sources and decided there was a chance of dry weather, so we went for it! In the end our amateur meteorology skills came through and we had a fabulous 95% dry photo shoot! And a really, really fun time! Mike and Natasha have such a lovely ease about them and we really enjoyed capturing them being themselves: in-love, hanging out together being all cute and even goofy and silly too! We feel that we truly captured their personalities and we look forward to their wedding this August.

This past Saturday, the weather that was forecast was not looking good. There was supposed to be heaps of rain, possibly thunder showers, heavy clouds, wind, and other variations of rain, the weather forecast was simply all over the map! So of course, we location scouted for all the various weather possibilities for the day, even for the slight chance of sun and thank goodness we did, it turned out to be a gorgeous, sunny, sunny day! Kyla arrived at our seaside wedding photo location in a vintage Rolls Royce by A Stylish Arrival. We chose a very private location for their First Look, so that Kyla + Will could simply chat and be themselves- and catch their breath! Later that afternoon, Kyla + Will were married  at the Capilano Suspension Bridge in North Vancouver. Kyla planned the day perfectly along with day of coordination by Alicia Keats Wedding + Events. Here are a few Sneak Peek photos from their wedding day.

This Friday, May 16th 2014 was a beautiful, sunny Spring day and more importantly, it was the day Rebecca + Curtis chose to get married! Rebecca selected the 100 year old Sylvia Hotel in downtown Vancouver to get ready with both her longtime friend Lisa and mom at her side. At Brock House, Rebecca + Curtis were married beneath a huge, gorgeous tree by the sea with a deeply meaningful wedding ceremony created by celebrant, Michele Davidson.  Here are a few select photos we wanted to share with you from their day.
