Granville Island Engagement Session

Granville-Island-Engagement-Photos

Jason and Cassandra met through mutual friends in March 2011 at a bowling alley. Cassandra was there as a volunteer fundraising for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society and Jason was invited by a friend to come on out and support the cause. There’s conflicting stories as to Jason and Cassandra’s first words shared…  but Jason remembers the following. “The very first time I spoke to Cassandra was when she approached our group and insisted (loudly) that we buy 50/50 tickets. I did, and did not win anything.” Hahah.

But after their first “loud” (sorry Cassandra) 50/50 ticket encounter, Jason started chatting to Cassandra more and hanging out with friends. And a few dates later, they were an item. These two got engaged in Whistler in March and to my joy, booked me a few weeks later. Cassandra is Veronica’s sister and was her maid of honour so she’s been in front of my lens before at Veronica and Henry’s wedding. (Interestingly enough, I also photographed Henry’s brothers wedding. A circle of weddings in this family. I love it.)

We chose Granville Island as the background for their engagement session as it’s a place these two hang out a lot. They both love to run and go for jogs around False Creek. Their reward is often doughnuts from Lee’s Doughnuts in the market. We mayyy have swung by the doughnut stand mid-session. ;)

I loved reading Jason and Cassandra’s questionnaires. I already know Cassandra’s family (from Veronica’s wedding) and think they are sweethearts – but seeing these two together, and reading their questionnaires just solidified those facts. When they have a day off, they “try to spend some time with our families” and “cook a meal together and share it with our family and friends is something we do often and enjoy greatly.” Their style as a couple is “laid back and care free, we try not to let the little things stress us out and always focus on the bigger picture in life, which is having each other, our health, and a roof over our head! We are very supportive of each other and both strive to do whatever it takes to make each other happy.” [I love that.]

Cassandra’s thoughts about their wedding included “focussing on the ‘bigger picture’ – to have our loved ones there and have a great party. Oh, and donuts from Lee’s instead of a wedding cake.” I’m gonna sum this post up with Jason’s thought: “The material things are not important to me and I’d be perfectly happy getting married in an empty barn!”

Just the way it should be.
