Best of 2017: Engagement

2017 Engagements

2017 was a year spent pushing ourselves creatively.

Vancouver has an amazing pool of talent when it comes to photography, and we tried really hard to find 'our voice' in the crowd. Having a lot less energy and time (love you Aspen) meant that we had to take advantage of every opportunity that life passed our way. This meant moving out of our comfort zone and into a world of taking risks, making a lot of mistakes, and saying 'yes' to things that scared us. 

As we look back at some of the images we produced this year one thing became very clear to us. We really love our clients. They let us (mostly Myles) try things that seem weird while completely trusting in us. No idea why, but they do! We are proud of this past year and can truly see growth in ourselves as artists. Being able to look back and be encouraged by your own work can be a struggle sometimes!

All that being said, we love these images and all of the conversations that these images don't capture. Being able to see these images and be reminded of great sunset chats, rain-soaked laughter, wading into lakes, and the quiet moments where we stop and say 'wow, this is beautiful'. 

Enjoy! We should be posting some of our favourites from our 2017 wedding season soon! 

Golden Eagle Golf Course Wedding: Melanie & Paul

Melanie & Paul Golden Eagle Golf Course Wedding

Before we met with Paul and Melanie for their wedding I had met long before. I attended high school with Paul at Fleetwood Park Secondary and spent 5 years attending classes together. Melanie and I met at our church youth group and spent years knowing each other at summer camps and weekly hangouts, but not talking too much! 

Fast forward almost 10 years after graduation and Paul sent a message to me on Facebook asking if I would be interested in photographing their wedding! Being able to see old friends come together in marriage was a joy to be a part of. 

The wedding day was a hot one! Luckily for their bridal portraits, we were able to hop into a helicopter (thanks to Sky Helicopters!!) to a snowy mountaintop. This was Paul and Melanie's first time in a chopper which made the experience even better, and their faces as we flew over rivers and lakes was priceless. With only a few minutes up on the mountaintop we went to work, and these guys were amazing. So relaxed and calm the whole day, they really made the day that much more enjoyable. Their pictures turned out amazing as a result of this! 

Overall, great couple, great day, and great images to look back on. Thanks to all the amazing vendors that helped make this day so special!

Cammidge House Wedding: Onome & Andrew

Onome & Andrew at Cammidge House Wedding

Onome and Andrew were married on a beautiful day in May of this year. We met them over a year ago over coffee and discussed what they were hoping for in terms of their wedding day. We have to say that we think that they achieved their goal, to get married! Both Andrew and Onome were so calm and peaceful on their wedding day and that really made our job so easy. Their wedding day was actually exactly two weeks after our little guy Aspen was born and Chantelle was still healing so we brought along the very talented Laine Mostert to second shoot. Cammidge House is such a beautiful venue and we were so excited to capture their entire day there (and return later in the year for another wedding). We loved the simplicity of their day and that everyone was so into the dancing during the reception. If you know anything about us, you know that we love a good dance party! It was a pleasure being a part of your wedding Onome and Andrew!
