Sharon & Richard Grouse Mountain Wedding
Sharon and Richard are the best, seriously we've never had more supportive clients than these two. They live in Toronto but we actually have a few mutual friends here in Vancouver so when Sharon reached out to us to photograph their wedding we were so excited. Our friend Lane would be officiating their wedding and our friend Emily from Emily Cuthbert Designs would be doing some print work.
Since these two lived across the country, we had a tricky time finding a date that would work to photograph their engagement session. Sharon and Richard were in Vancouver for one weekend before their wedding day which also happened to be my due date. We let them know that we were totally down to shoot their engagement photos but we were anticipating a baby any day. Long story short I ended up going into labour on the day of their engagement session. The original plan was to shoot their photos in Vancouver but I had been admitted so we asked them if they would be okay switching the location closer to the hospital I was at. Believe it or not, we actually contemplated Myles leaving me at the hospital and going to their session then returning to my side.
Oh my goodness how naive were we! Soon enough I was in full blown labour and we had to cancel on them but we have never felt more supported by a client ever, they were amazing. Aspen was born the next morning.
Fast forward a few months later and we finally got to meet Sharon and Richard on their wedding day. We all had a good laugh about how we totally thought we could do their engagement session while I was in labour. The day was calm and relaxed as we made our way up to Grouse Mountain where Sharon and Richard exchanged vows overlooking the city of Vancouver. Every part of their day was filled with love and good times! So many laughs were shared and a lot of doughnuts were eaten (they had a doughnut wall!). We fought off what seemed like thousands of mosquitoes during portraits on the side of the mountain before entering their reception. We had such an awesome time getting to know these two and their friends and family and we can't wait to grab a drink next time they are in town!

We were trying to think of a way to make it up to Sharon and Richard but nothing really seemed enough. So when Sharon asked us to photograph/attend (Aspen too) their pool party the next day, it was a no brainer. They had rented an AirBnb in North Vancouver with a pool and invited their friends to a pool party to continue to celebrate with them before they returned to Toronto. We brought Aspen to meet the couple who's session he abruptly interrupted and we ate, hung out and photographed for the afternoon. Until Aspen being Aspen had the biggest diaper explosion ever. Only a baby would make an exit like that, again Sharon and Richard were there supporting us with laughs and help cleaning up the mess. You two rock, we hope to cross paths again soon, next time we will get a babysitter.
