Portrait Sessions

Gillian and Mark: Couples Session

Gillian & I first met a couple of years ago through her accessory business: Grace Like Rain. We met up for a chat in my office one day & connected over similar passions: art, music, travel. A few weeks later, we planned a session with a few girls to photograph her creations. Since then, we’ve been able to meet up a few more times for random coffee/lunch dates. I always enjoy her company. Gillian married her boyfriend Mark last August (you have to see their photos… killer!) and I just had to have them in front of my camera last weekend!

P.S. This Easter weekend was “Summer in March.” Seriously. If you’re a Vancouverite, you know what I’m talking about. If you’re not, just picture a Southern California spring and there you have it. We’re back to the rain now, but the sun was incredible. I got a tan. And was outside all weekend. And wore shorts. YES.

P.P.S. Gillian runs a killer fashion blog. The Closet Diaries.

    Beautiful portraits Jamie! What lens do you like to use for portraits like these?

  2. Hi Joel! Thank you! It was a mix of the 24mm, 35mm and 85mm. Most often the 35mm.
