Lynn and Peter are getting married!

Lynn and Peter met just over one year ago, on a hiking trip organized by mutual friends. There were 20 friends hiking together that day on the five hour trail. Peter noticed Lynn lagging behind a bit and instead of charging ahead to prove his own athleticism, he waited for her, encouraging her along the way. Lynn noticed his effort and soon, they both realized they were left behind! For an hour or so, they hiked together, not talking too much, but enjoying each other’s company. Lynn remembers it as ‘definitely a great first impression!’ A week after the hike, Peter asked Lynn out on a date and she said yes. Fifteen months later, here I am, sharing their engagement photos with you!

These two are getting married on a Monday afternoon this October. I’m so excited they’ve chosen me as their photographer. I met Peter and Lynn for the first time at UBC for their engagement photos – where they both went to school! Lynn wanted her first outfit to be a wedding gown her mom purchased in China (she’s wearing a different one on the wedding day!) and I jumped at the chance to photograph some pre-wedding portraits for them. I can’t get over how perfect her dress and the UBC  architecture was together! Enjoy their UBC Engagement Photos!

These may be some of my favourite photos ever… I loved photographing these two!

After a dress change, we went to the new student union building on campus called The Nest. It wasn’t there when Lynn and Peter attended UBC but they loved the architecture and wanted a few photos in the space.

I love Peter and Lynn’s height difference. It’s adorable. At one point during the session, when Lynn was wearing a wedding dress, I asked her to “go on her tip toes” to reach Peter’s face a bit more. She replied, I already am! And she was wearing four inch heels, already. Hahah!

I loved the little bit of Fall colours and evening sunlight we managed to capture!

Lynn’s one request was a few photos of Peter picking her up. The first time he did, he shook her up and down and side to side and she couldn’t stop laughing and hitting him playfully, haha! She’s so cute.

I hope you love your photos, Lynn + Peter! See you soon for the wedding day!!
