Granville Island Engagement Photos

Gina and Daniel are getting married!

Nearly ten years ago, Gina moved to Vancouver from Taiwan to study Graphic Design. She fell in love with the city and it stayed in her heart long after she moved home. After moving home, she met Daniel through their workplace – and the two fell in love!

When they got engaged and starting planning their wedding for late 2017 in Taiwan, Gina knew she wanted Daniel to experience Vancouver (and the whole West Coast!) They booked a 2 week trip to the coast, visiting Vancouver, San Francisco, San Diego and making time for engagement photos in the city she loves!

Such a pleasure to meet these two. You’d never believe it looking at the photos, but the day before, Gina had an intense case of food poisoning. She was texting me late at night saying, “I don’t know if I’m going make it tomorrow!” I woke up to a text the next day, “I feel great! Let’s go!” So thankful!

It’s a common tradition in Taiwan to have ‘pre-wedding photos’ taken, so Gina wore her wedding dress for the first look of our engagement session together.

Don’t forget while looking at these photos… it was so, so cold. (Just below freezing.) Gina was laughing at the ‘wrong impression’ Vancouver gave her fiance, Daniel, on his first visit here. It’s SO rare we drop below freezing and it seems we’ve been that way for a month now! (It is one of the coldest winters on record.)

A quick change and Gina and Daniel were excited to check out the market together.

This is one of my favourite views in the city + I love when we get to capture it!

Thank you again, Gina and Daniel! All the best to you for your winter wedding in 2017!
