Vancouver Jericho Beach photographer

spanish banks engagement photographer / early morning love story

I know Andrew's sister, and she is awesome.  So when he and Shahla contacted me to take their engagement photos, I knew that they must be awesome too!  I didn't know quite HOW awesome they would be, however.  This engagement session was so much fun!

Andrew & Shahla got engaged at Spanish Banks Beach, and that was where we decided to take their engagement photos - at 7:30 on a Saturday morning.  The weather was similar to the day they got engaged - misty and a little bit rainy, but they braved through it, with their blanket and coffees!  And here are the photos from that lovely grey morning.

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.
