Sara & Pouya – Alpine Engagement Session: Winter Sleigh Ride in the Snow at Silver Star Mountain Resort, Vernon, BC

We met Sara in August at her sister’s beautiful outdoor wedding we were photographing in South Langley which was held on their family property.  Sara was Sana’s Maid of Honour and we were so excited to hear that shortly after her sister’s wedding, she got engaged!  We were so honoured to be asked to photograph Sara’s wedding and can’t wait for her gorgeous wedding which will be held at The Celebration Pavilion and Seasons in the Park at Queen Elizabeth Park in Vancouver. 

Sara just finished medical school (congratulations!) and is on a much deserved mini break, so her and Pouya thought it would be great to have a little escape and come up to Silver Star Mountain Resort for their photoshoot.  We loved the idea and after hot chocolate and coffee at Bugaboos Café in the village, we all hopped on a sleigh ride which whisked us away along snow covered trails to a cabin in the woods where we warmed up before heading back.  Thanks Sara & Pouya for braving the cold and having lots of fun along the way.  We can’t wait until your wedding!

Right before the end of the shoot, Sara threw on her red jacket and Pouya kept his furry hat on for a few last images.  We looked over and were amazed at how they unintentionally transformed into Little Red Riding Hood and the Wolf (with fur ears and all!).

Erin & Jamie – Vintage/80’s Mashup Winter Engagement Session at Big White Ski Resort, Kelowna, BC

We had been corresponding with Erin & Jamie long distance regarding their upcoming engagement shoot, but hadn’t officially met since they live in Alberta.   When they mentioned that they were heading off this past fall to Oktoberfest in Germany and their top priority was to have fun on their wedding day, we immediately knew we would get along.  We loved how they wanted to meet up at Big White Ski Resort in Kelowna for their photos and after some discussion we agreed to infuse a bit of classic Hudson’s Bay Company theme into the shoot and then go crazy at the end with some 80’s ski apparel for fun.  Erin did a call-out to friends and family for ridiculous 80’s ski apparel and scored some pretty awesome stuff.  Also, she came in the perfect jacket – a vintage Hudson’s Bay Company that her Mom used to wear!!!

Doing winter photoshoots are not for the faint of heart.  Although the sun was shining at certain times, it was a cold day on the mountain, but Erin & Jamie rocked it!  Thanks you two for being up for anything and withstanding the freezing temperatures.  We can’t wait to photograph your wedding on September 21st at Linden Gardens in Kaleden, BC!

Part Deux:  OK, Ready for some 80’s ski ridiculousness?!?  Soft glow and all!  I dare you not to laugh.
