Dog lovers, Siriya and Graham have their doggies to thank–> big time. That’s how they met: a chance encounter at a dog park in Yaletown, so of course, their dogs were a big part of their engagement photo session. And how could they not be? They are adorable! Siriya and Graham have an awesome, super fun energy about them which was great to be around and we loved photographing them. We are really looking forward to what is sure to be an awesome wedding day in August.

Those of you that are regular readers of our blog will have no doubt noticed that we haven’t posted in awhile and well, that’s because we’ve been a little bit busy. 🙂 On March 21st, 2012 we welcomed to the world our little baby girl Zoe Victoria Eckersall. She has kept us super busy, we are so in love with her and it’s been a fun new adventure so far, despite the lack of sleep!

Catherine and Adam were really excited to head up to Mt. Seymour for a snowy winter engagement session.  And wow did it snow! Our time up there felt like we were hanging out inside a giant snow globe, which made for a super fun session, yet romantic at the same time.  Anyhow, we just wanted to post a few photographs to share with you from their Vancouver snowy photo shoot today.

Christine and Ryan wanted to do something a little different for their wedding. They were married in a castle!  Hatley Castle near Victoria is a stunning and magical wedding location found right by the ocean overlooking the Olympic Mountains and surrounded by gardens. They chose to have a smaller, intimate and elegant wedding and whole feel of the day was relaxed, yet fun and enjoyed by all, including us despite working hard to capture their day for them. I kept feeling like I was a character in the pages of the novel ‘The Great Gatsby”. We just love photographing weddings in Victoria as it’s my home town and it is always great to be back home!

Being big fans of nice wines, they insisted on bringing in some of their favourite wine, Blue Mountain Pinot Blanc from the Okanagan, to share with their guests.

Speeches of true friendship and love were shared, plus a few embarrassing moments sprinkled in for good measure!
