Dana and Ciaran had the best wedding day! The process never gets old for me. I remember meeting these day at a crowded Starbucks on Thanksgiving weekend to book their wedding for the following summer. Then, seeing them again in February for their engagement session and getting to know them a bit more on a cold, but sunny day. By the time we are approaching the wedding, I genuinely feel excited to see my couples get married. It feels a tiny bit like going to a new friends wedding, “I can’t wait to see Dana walk down the aisle!” I really do care. And their wedding day did not disappoint.
Just a few days before this session, I got a sweet email from a family visiting from Hong Kong! They were spending 5 weeks in North America and had a little less than a week back in Vancouver where the husband grew up. In that week, they wanted to capture some sweet family photos with their 3 young boys: a seven-year-old and two twin five-year-olds.
We met at Queen Elizabeth Park and had fun creating some gorgeous images for this family to remember their trip, and this time in their lives by. Enjoy!
Anny and Jacky: July 15, 2017
Anny and Jacky had a beautiful wedding day at the Fairmont Pacific Rim this past Saturday! The day began with Anny preparing with her five lovely bridesmaids before the First Look with Jacky. The rooms at the Fairmont Pacific Rim are gorgeous and so easy to photograph in!
When Anny and Jacky saw one another for the first time, I loved their smiles and Anny’s immediate happy tears! After a few portraits near the hotel, we were off to Stanley Park for two different looks. Following portraits, there was a tea ceremony in the hallway of the Fairmont Pacific Rim, followed by the ceremony in the ballroom.
I have to say, I’m impressed we pulled off this session in a month’s time! A few weeks ago, Cherril asked me at church what my session availability looked like for June. She wanted to get together her two adult kids, with their spouses and their 6 grandchildren!
We got to work planning – finding 4 available session dates with my calendar, matching them to the tide schedule that worked for the beach (high tide would not do!) and then matching those times to the work/life schedules of six adults. Like I said, impressive. ;) The weather cooperated beautifully and we had an amazing Tuesday night at the beach this week!
