Light house park engagement
The time has come and 2014 weddings season is already in full speed. And it is only the end of March. Adam and Heather are going to wait couple more months before theirs big day comes. And just because they happen to live up north in Yukon, I was very pleased when they booked us to be their wedding photographers. To organize a wedding and everything around it from such a far distance takes time so did our engagement session planning. We moved the dates couple times and finally on one sunny day in March we met at the Light house park in West Vancouver and could do a fun filled engagement shoot. And to make it even more fun, Charlie, young puppy was accompanying us during it and had a blast from my point of view 🙂
The late afternoon light was bouncing from the ocean to our eyes so after couepl days of rain it was a joy to be out there and enjoy it. Every portrait session is different but these guys were so spontaneous I had a really simply work to do 🙂 just to take great pictures. Being relaxed and trusting the photographer is a key at the wedding day. That is why I include engagements session in all our wedding collections. You get to know me and specially you stop staring at long lenses attached to my cameras like they were sniper rifles. Just being yourself is enough for beautiful emotional pictures so if you need to have a shot of a tequila before that, juts do it. I do not know what Adam and Heather likes to taste but they were pretty relax and the only crazy person running around was Charlie and of course me trying to capture him 🙂
Luckily the leash was quite short so we had some nice moments and were barking from time to time on each other. I mean, I had no idea we will have a dog on the stage and when Heather told me they have him with them, i had a winning combo in my sleeve for a real atmosphere shots of them with the puppy. I had shot couples sessions on bikes, snowshoeing, skiing, driving in antique convertibles, swinging on playgrounds all sort of fun activities when adults stop being adults and enjoy themselves like we used to do it as kids. To break that stiffness we kind of grew up into in our lives by doing anything which you love is going to really show in the emotions captured in my images. Being yourself is the best advice you can get from a wedding photographer.
I am already looking forward to create some unique wedding pictures for these guys and there is no doubt there is going to be a lot of fun with them and their bridal party. And if the wether will be the same like for this shoot then we hit the jackpot. Congratulations Heather and Adam and see you soon again.
