I can't even begin to express how much fun we all had taking these photos. And meeting this couple was the best part - they were up for anything, laughed a lot, and were completely in love.
This is how their story goes, as told to me by them and remembered by me. (So pardon any faulty details!)
Sasha and Gabriel met in Vancouver years ago, but she was living in Australia while he was in Vancouver. After doing long-distance for some time, Gabriel proposed; she said "Are you serious?!" (which means yes), and Gabriel planned a lot of the wedding himself. (A fact that greatly impressed me.) Sasha arrived just in time for the wedding, so they never had time to get their engagement photos taken.
So these were their four-years-after-the-fact engagement photos, and I'm so glad they chose me to take them! We went to Locardo Beach (near Jericho Beach) as the sun started to set, and there the magic happened.
Can I also say how much I love balloons in the sunset, and kissing pictures? Because I do. So much.
