We are so excited to be sharing this snowy engagement session we did with Lydia + Ken at Cypress Mountain last year (can't believe it's 2015 already!). It was a very challenging session for all of us, mostly because how freezing cold it was. It was the toughest for Lydia in her strapless wedding gown in such cold snowy condition. So glad that we brought some little disposable heat packs for them, Ken's hands were turning almost purple at the end of the session, which really worried me. We wished we had brought at least 20 of the heat packs to stuff them up! All in all, they were such troopers and braved out the freezing cold session all the way. Not a single complaint and we managed to take more than what we initially planned for, the extra hour was well worth it. And luckily we got to shoot a little more with the last bit of sunlight before the sun disappeared behind the mountains. Big shout-out to Lisa from from Shing Weddings, what kind of fantastic planner tags along and assists at engagement sessions? Lisa does! Super awesome planner to have for your big day! Call her up!
It was a last minute hang out + photo shoot and so glad it happened and turned out to be a great portrait session. One night we just asked Vivian and David if they're up for a quick snowy session with us because we were going to scout Mt Seymour and check out the snow condition. The snow up there wasn't that great, we were a little disappointed but with little 10 minute hike, we managed to find this path with more snow and a cool looking dam/water fall. Vivian and David were extremely fun and easy to work with, they would say yes to anything we ask them to do (but of course we put safety first always!). Prior to the shoot, they told us that they aren't photogenic and worried they might look awkward in front of the camera. Seriously, I LOVE how the images turned out. Awesome couple with genuine personalities with beautiful smiles. Thank you Vivian and David for doing this scout + shoot with us. Although this couple isn't engaged (yet), I can't wait till when the day really comes! *hint David*
We are so excited to be sharing this session on the blog! We met Iris and Steven from Vivian, a friend of Yna and Yohei. It's always amazing to meet new friends, know their love story, and to photograph them. We were lucky enough to capture the last bits of the cherry blossom in at QE Park last week. We were so worried about rainy and almost canceled it. Iris and Steven were troopers and didn't mind the rain, we ended up with so many great shots of them with the cherry blossom. Thankfully the sun came out in the middle of the session, we were all so happy to see the sunshine and the rain stopped!
For those that know us, we LOVE animals especially DOGS! We got even more excited when found out Iris and Steven brought the dogs with them. It's always so joyful to photograph the couples with their pets, there's something about pets that can make people smile. The kind of smile is just different, genuine, and full of love. Can't wait to capture their wedding in May just in 2 weeks! It's going to be so great seeing some familiar faces, friends, and working with so many vendors that we know, too!

Vancouver is famous for its beautiful scenery all year around. We Vancouverites are very lucky to have such beautiful autumn colours to be found everywhere at this time of the year. Karen and Victor wanted a fall/autumn theme engagement session, we waited and waited till the leaves start to turn into the nice yellowish orange colours.
Here are some teasers from the engagement session we had at Gastown and Stanley Park today. Beautiful foggy day without rain and with fun adorable couple = can't ask for more! Enjoy =)
