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.

When Kate + John requested cherry blossoms for their engagement photo session, of course we said Yes. And when Kate asked if her dog, Guinness – her Irish Wheaten Terrier, could come too, of course we said Yes again! We happen to love dogs too, so were were delighted that he was part of their Spring engagement photo session. So much so, that you’ll see that a third of the photos in this post include Guinness! I couldn’t resist-he’s Adorable! We had their engagement photo session on one of the first warm Vancouver Spring days and had a lovely afternoon getting to know them better and enjoying our beautiful city together.

Whitney + Brian had an incredible wedding day- two days in one really! They wanted to honour both their family backgrounds by having both a Sikh and Western wedding, but instead of having it over multiple days, they chose to have it all in one day! This meant a big, long, awesome day and their family and friends were up for it with heaps of energy! We started the day off with Whitney, her girlfriends and Mom getting ready in their saris along with Whitney’s little Chihuahua- Bear, looking on. At his family home with his parents, sister and two best friends, Brian got ready for the Sikh ceremony and traditions of the day. We planned a quiet, secluded area for their First Look and it was one of those happy tears, full of soooo much love moments that we’ll always remember. Their Sikh wedding ceremony was held at the Alan Emmott Centre in Burnaby. We then all headed over to Richmond to relax a bit, change it all up and prepare for their Western wedding ceremony. We had yet again another 2nd First Look 🙂 which then started off the next portion of their wedding day with their wedding ceremony on the docks at the UBC Boathouse. They had the perfect sunny day with an amazing sunset and these two deserve it. Whitney + Brian are a kind, fun and thoughtful couple and we look forward to capturing the next stage in their lives -they are expecting- later this year. 🙂
