Lydia + Ken | Snowy Engagement at Cypress Mountain North Vancouver

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!

Gloria + Allen | Engagement | The Diamond in Gastown

Here we are finally got to shoot this lovely mix of west coast and classic vintage engagement session with Gloria and Allen! Ever since after shooting their Save-The-Date video at the Sky Lantern Festival earlier this year, we've been talking about where to shoot, what to wear, and what theme to go with, etc etc. Gloria came up with the idea of going to The Diamond at Gastown for some shots and shots! After weeks of discussion and idea-tossing, we finally got to make ideas come true. Luckily Gloria and Allen managed to get a time slot to shoot inside the restaurant, ordered some cocktails and just went on with a little date. It was a nice date and paparazzi style approach we had. Loved the classic vintage interior of The Diamond, loved Gloria's new gown, and loved the matching outfit Allen had for Gloria. One of our favourite sessions of all times!

Karen + Victor | Autumn Engagement Session | Teasers

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 =)
