Amanda & Josh – sexy desert engagement session in the Okanagan

Amanda & Josh are not only crazy in love, but also each other’s best friend. They were so passionate about having the ultimate engagement portraits that they worked out hard for three months prior and provided us a ton of inspiration for the vision that they wanted us to create.  What followed was a super sexy engagement session that showcased their love, amid the Okanagan’s desert-like background.   I don’t know about you, but when I look at these images they make me think of the desert landscapes of Vegas and Lana Del Rey’s music – they exude a bit of badass glamour.  Afterwards, we headed down to the water to capture some uber sexy shots as it was beginning to get dark.  Even though they were shivering and cold, we pulled out some amazing images in the beautiful dusk lighting.  We can not tell you how much we loved this engagement session!  The styling, storyline, weather, locations…and of course our gorgeous couple came together to create an unforgettable collection of images.  Amanda & Josh, we are looking forward to photographing your wedding on June 16th, 2012 in Kelowna!

Alejandra & Jeffrey– mountain vineyard wedding
at See Ya Later Ranch in Okanagan Falls, BC

We were super excited about photographing this wedding because

a) we had never met the couple beforehand (they came all the way from Ottawa) and

b) we had never shot a wedding at See Ya Later Ranch.

Well let me tell you – both the couple and location blew us away. As we started to ascend the mountain to get to See Ya Later Ranch we felt like we are on some great adventure to a secret location. When we reached our destination we were greeted by the cutest historical stone house which dates back to the early 1900’s and jaw-dropping views of the Okanagan Valley.

We instantly were enamoured with Alejandra & Jeffrey who are super sweet, funny, and happen to have impeccable style.  During our time with them we discovered they are high school sweethearts…awww.  We loved how Alejandra, who is a graphic designer, made all the stationary, décor, and flower arrangements herself. Jeffrey is within sight of the finishing line for his career as a medical ER doctor (hehe…slight pun, since he also competed in the Ironman triathlon a week after the wedding in Penticton).  As soon as we saw Alejandra’s Vera Wang gown, we nearly fell over from its sheer beauty. Jeffrey perfectly complemented her in his classic Hugo Boss tuxedo. After the most beautiful ceremony, we started the photoshoot with the couple and wedding party around the vineyards while guests were treated to a sparkling reception featuring See Ya Later Ranch’s own sparkling wine and h’orderves. Tamsin who is the event coordinator from See Ya Later Ranch was so accommodating and even let us use her beautiful vintage car, a white Alpine Tiger, for a romantic photo-op nestled within the vineyard overlooking the stunning sunset backdrop.

We thoroughly enjoyed the wedding party entrance into the reception, with Michael, the best man and brother of the groom, doing a Canadian rendition of the Kenny Powers ‘Real American’ entrance from the show Eastbound & Down, complete with sparklers and cape that got everyone laughing (see slideshow).  As we left the reception, while the party was still going, we looked up at the starry night sky and saw the most amazing display of the Milky Way, which Kevin captured and is displayed as the last image on this post.  Thank you so much, Alejandra & Jeffrey, for including us in your stunning vineyard wedding.
