Granville Island Engagement: Taylor & Carlon

Taylor & Carlon Granville Island Engagement

We first met these two at a wedding last summer, when we were photographing Shelby and Adam on their wedding day. Being Adams brother, Carlon was in the wedding party which gave us a full day together! Fast forward a few months and we are taking family pictures, and Carlon's dad approaches me and whispers: "you know, they are looking for photographers for their wedding so we hope today goes well!"

Things went well! One coffee shop hangout later and we were planning for their wedding.

It is always fun working with different family members of previous bride and grooms. You see a whole different side of the family, and start to piece together the wonderful dynamics that as an outsider you don't normally experience.

For their engagement pictures we picked a day and it just so happened to be the only sunny Sunday in all of March. It also happened to be on Granville Island where the rest of Vancouver was enjoying this miracle break from the rain. It was busy, but we made it work and we love all the amazing colours we were able to capture. After all this rain, we needed some colour. 

Thank you Taylor and Carlon for allowing me to experiment with some new techniques, and for doing things like jumping into each others arms without batting an eye.
