Elen and Ryan love hanging out at beaches during summer vacations in the Okanagan, so it only made sense to photograph their engagement session at one of the nicest beaches in the Okanagan – Kal Beach in Coldstream. When we let Elen and Ryan know where we wanted to meet for the photoshoot, Elen exclaimed that Kalamalka lake is one of her all-time favourite places in the Okanagan. Perfect!
This beach is also beloved by lots of other people, so Elen & Ryan did an awesome job ignoring everyone else and focusing just on each other. With the wood wharf, sandy beaches, and beautiful summer heat, these images emit such a beachy, fresh vibe. Elen, also completely styled the entire picnic spread with colourful sparkling beverages and mason jars of fun candy. We love the light colours of the blanket, pillows, and their outfits which made everything so summery.
Oh, and to attest to how in love these two are, Ryan contacted us several weeks ago to secretly ask for the images before Elen even had seen them so he could make prints and display them at her birthday/housewarming party as a surprise. Awww! Also, you may notice a blue plastic band on Ryan’s wrist – when we asked about it, he said that Elen gave it to him right when they started going out and he hasn’t taken it off since! It’s official – these two are crazy in love! Congratulations Elen & Ryan – We can’t wait to photograph your wedding on July 19th, 2014 at Summerhill Winery and Hotel Eldorado in Kelowna!
