Sarah & Sean–Dreamy day-after wedding session at Lanikai Beach, Oahu, Hawaii

Flying all the way to Hawaii to photograph Sarah and Sean’s Waikiki wedding, how could we not venture away from the hub and explore some other areas?  When Sarah suggested Lanikai beach as the destination for their day-after wedding session, we immediately were up for it.  We’re convinced this is probably one of the most beautiful beaches in the world – actually we’re not the only ones who thinks so because National Geographic also rated it in their top 10 beaches of the world.  Imagine endless white sand, turquoise calm waters, and the famous Mokulua Islands in the background (which we actually kayaked to on a previous day).

We thought it would be awesome to pay homage to Hawaii’s surf culture with some cool vintage surfboards.  Previous to the wedding, we stayed in Kailua (located right next to Lanikai) and discovered a great company called Hawaii Beach Time which rents and delivers all sorts of beach gear.  Since we had such a great experience renting our kayak from them, we decided to call Ryan up to see if he had any vintage surf boards around.  He went out of his way to find us some amazing ones and delivered them to our shoot location – we can not say enough amazing things about this company!  Thanks Hawaii Beach Time!!!

Sarah bought a different wedding dress for this photoshoot that was more beach friendly as her wedding day dress was quite extravagant.  We had an amazing time photographing these two in the dreamy dusk light in such a relaxing and beautiful environment.  What a perfect way to end a phenomenal destination wedding.  Thanks for choosing us as your photographers, Sarah and Sean!  It was an experience of a lifetime!

Sana & Logan – Wild and Free
Ultra Romantic Horse engagement session in Vernon, BC

We have been excited about this engagement shoot for a while.  When Sana told us she wanted to ride a horse bareback in the water as part of the engagement shoot we nearly jumped for joy.  Yes!!!  They made the excellent location choice of Cosens Bay in Kalamalka Lake Provincial Park.  It was our first time there and wow, what an amazing location.  It’s huge, wild, and rugged.  The fields were bursting with yellow wild flowers and as were setting up the picnic scene, a young bear made it’s appearance and kind of circled from a distance.  I think he was smelling the baguette, so we got the shots we needed and then packed it up!   Logan mocked up a picnic similar to the one they had in Paris, France under the Eiffel Tower when he proposed that day.  Aww…How romantic is that?!

After the picnic, the horses came thanks to Mary-Ellen and her assistant who rode them down to our location for the photoshoot.  A huge thank-you!  The horse and lake photos were so fun – the horses were such good sports even though the hoards of mosquitoes drove them a bit nuts at times.  We don’t blame them, hoards of mosquitoes can drive anyone temporarily insane.  As the sun set behind the mountains, Sana and Logan braved the extremely cold waters and took the plunge.  Thanks you guys for being up for anything and for being so crazy in love.  We can’t wait to photograph your wedding this August in South Langley (fun fact of the day: Langley is horse capital of British Columbia)!

When we asked Logan to kiss Sana’s cheek, Indy decided to get in on the love too!  Is that not the most adorable thing ever?!  We love Sana’s burst of laughter right after the double kiss and Indy’s quizzical look.

Jocelyn & Dustin–Shakespeare in Love
Dreamy boat engagement session in Okanagan Falls, BC

June 27th, 2012

When Jocelyn & Dustin mentioned they spend a lot of time camping and hanging out in Dustin’s boat as a couple, we immediately knew we were on to something.  We’re unabashedly in love with boats and have been itching to do an engagement session with one.  We also love how Jocelyn spends the whole time […]

 

When Jocelyn & Dustin mentioned they spend a lot of time camping and hanging out in Dustin’s boat as a couple, we immediately knew we were on to something.  We’re unabashedly in love with boats and have been itching to do an engagement session with one.  We also love how Jocelyn spends the whole time in the boat constantly reading while Dustin fishes.  So we thought we would duplicate their boat personalities and Jocelyn brought along her copy of the Complete Works of William Shakespeare.  She informed us she has indeed read the whole book during her acting studies far away in England.  They also brought along their adorable dog who is supercharged with energy and had us all laughing with her wiggly personality.

Before they hopped in the boat, we strolled down the cool trestle bridge which used to carry the train across Skaha lake.  Summer was out in full that day with hot  temperatures and people jumping off the trestle into the water below.  I’m not quite sure if we’ve had a nicer day since – it’s been very rainy and unusually mild here in the Okanagan for this time of year.

We had so much fun with these two during the photoshoot and we are head over heels in love with the dreamy beauty of the boat images.  Thanks Jocelyn & Dustin for making such an effort in bringing the boat out for the shoot!  We are so stoked to photograph your wedding in Kaleden this September!!!

Sarah & Sean–

When Sarah told us she would love to have their engagement shoot inspired by the music video You and Tequila by Kenny Chesney we were totally game.  We immediately loved the intimacy and creative lighting in the music video.  Rising up late, driving around in a cool vintage car, sunset overlooking the city, beach, crashing waves, and of course, tequila – what more would you want in an engagement shoot?!  Sign us up!

Then when we thought it couldn’t get any better, Sarah informed us they were bringing up her Dad’s custom vintage show car from the Lower Mainland for the engagement shoot.  Woot woot!  This car is a head turner and if you happened to be in downtown Kelowna the night of the engagement shoot, you would have seen me in the rumble seat hanging out photographing these two.  I’ve never heard so many enthusiastic people in my life – the car generated comments such as “I’m so jealous!” and constant hooting and hollering.  If this car was a person, it would definitely be a rock star.

Driving up to Knox Mountain, we were instantly greeted by an amazing golden sunset amidst the soft hues of the sage brush landscape.  Even as the sun long disappeared beyond the mountains we were still equally in love with the dreamy tones of dusk and the full moon even made a nice appearance in the background.  Sarah & Sean are such a madly in love, awesome couple.  We had a great time with them and look forward to photographing their wedding in August!

Janie & Hagen–Windswept romance
winery and beach engagement session in Oliver & Summerland, BC

May 26th, 2012

When we were brainstorming ideas for Janie and Hagen’s engagement session, we knew one thing – that we couldn’t come close to the amazingness (of course that’s a word) of their actual engagement proposal which goes a little like this:  On a typical Sunday evening, Janie and Hagen set out to have dinner with family in Richmond, BC (which also happens to be home to Vancouver’s International Airport).  Just as Janie thought that Hagen made a wrong turn, she suddenly realized that they were in the long-term airport parking lot!  Not only did Hagen surprise Janie with a romantic getaway to New York, he proposed on the lake in Central Park in a gondola!!!  Our jaws dropped as we read their proposal story and we seriously think it’s one of the most romantic proposals we’ve ever heard.

To showcase their romantic style and pay homage to their love of wine and the Okanagan Valley, we met up at Road 13 Winery in Oliver, BC where Janie and Hagen tasted wine in the ultra modern executive tasting room.  Road 13 Winery is family owned and we had the pleasure of one of the owners, Joseph, pouring the wine.  Thanks Joseph for accommodating us, making us laugh, and being an awesome host!  After the wine tasting we headed outdoors to wander around the newly green vineyards and capture the beautiful expansive valley.  Janie and Hagen brought a super big pink balloon that we thought might carry them away during this windy day.  Road 13 Winery also has a castle building for their wine tastings and we love the way it looks in the background.  So fairy tale romantic!

On our way back we all stopped at a gorgeous beach in Summerland, BC for a picnic.  Although the day was overcast and windy, we LOVE the way these images turned out.  We think the slightly muted tones of the sky totally added to the dreamy beachside look we were going for.  Thanks Janie and Hagen for surviving the slightly cold and windy day.  Did we mention we loved your outfits?  We couldn’t imagine anything better than Janie’s ultra romantic flowy skirt at the beach.

Even the sky was on our side – it didn’t start to pour until we were all done and in our cars headed back to Kelowna.  A perfect day.  Janie and Hagen – you both rocked this shoot and we can’t wait until your wedding in September at Sparkling Hill Resort!!!

We are always striving to be more creative in our engagement photoshoots, so when Sarah suggested to have part of the session in the hotel room they were staying at we jumped at the idea.  We love the classic look of white sheets and immediately knew with her bombshell blonde looks, she would exude a bit of Brigitte Bardot sexiness into the images.  Along with Sarah & Bryce, came Belle, their adorable little dog which they brought with them all the way from Edmonton.  Belle brought some major cuteness and laughter into the session.  After leaving the hotel we ventured to downtown Kelowna to use some urban spaces and then headed to the beach where they braved the cold and actually ventured into the water.  This session occurred in mid-April on a cold day with little sun, so you can imagine how brave they were!  Sarah & Bryce are super playful together and we had them rolling in the sand and splashing water at each other.  Despite the cold, we pulled out some amazing images reminiscent of long summer days thanks to their daring and adventurous spirits.  Sarah & Bryce – we look forward to photographing your destination wedding in June at The Delta Grand Okanagan Resort in Kelowna!
