Five years ago, Carman & Tommy met through church when Carman started attending with a friend. The pair didn’t connect right away as their circles weren’t the same, until later that year in the summertime. Their youth group went away to gospel camp for a week and Carman & Tommy got to know each other a bit more through friends.
Neither remembers the exact moment they started moving closer to one another, but in November, Carman & Tommy went on a walk in Stanley Park–their first ‘solo hangout.’ It was officially just a friendship without hand-holding on the walk… though both Carman & Tommy were wondering what was next. In December, after studying at Simon Fraser University in the library, they went for a walk to clear their brains! Tommy reached for Carman’s hand and that was that… their story began.
Enjoy Carman and Tommy’s Queen Elizabeth Park engagement photos!
P.S. Lots of client connections here: Carman went to high school with Jacky (of Jacky & Anny’s wedding this year) – and she’s the sister of two of my past clients. Rebecca & Kenneth’s wedding in 2013 and Phoebe & Jacky’s wedding in 2015! I’m so thrilled Phoebe pushed Carman & Tommy my way for their wedding photos. Thank you all for your continued support of my business and work!
Carman wanted a specific ‘feel’ for their session, which I love. She wanted a regal, stone building as their backdrop for outfit #1. It was perfect at this location!
C&T’s smiles make this photo one of my favourites from the shoot.
Carman’s family dog Moss made an appearance for the photos! So soooo cute.
The Love Locks statue at Queen Elizabeth Park nearby is a place that means a lot to these two. Last winter they locked their love together! You can see their lock to the left of Tommy in this photo… it’s red. :)
Beautiful laughs in this photo are thanks to their pup Moss who decided to no longer walk in step with them but run ahead rapidly, hahaha.
I love the colours we had in this set. The thick, dark smoke returned to Vancouver only a few hours before C & T’s engagement session, but they had great attitudes about it, knowing it would make the colours even more beautiful!
Thank you two so much! Can’t wait for next May!
An awe-inspiring images and location!
