Sana & Logan – Wild and Free

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.

Mallory & Dave – Take Me Home, Country Roads
Sweet and Beautiful Homestead Engagement Session in Vernon, BC

July 3rd, 2012

Anyone that knows us can attest to our unabashed love of heritage buildings, vintage objects, and other treasures from years gone by.  So when, Mallory suggested we use her family’s homestead property complete with the original house built by her great-great Grandfather you can imagine how excited we were.  It is so rare to find […]

 

Anyone that knows us can attest to our unabashed love of heritage buildings, vintage objects, and other treasures from years gone by.  So when, Mallory suggested we use her family’s homestead property complete with the original house built by her great-great Grandfather you can imagine how excited we were.  It is so rare to find homesteads still owned by the original family and we loved the idea of using something so meaningful and significant for their engagement photoshoot.

Since this property doesn’t have an exact address, we met them on the side of a road in an approximate location and started the walk up the pasture to get to the homestead.  We were immediately blown away by the natural rustic beauty of it all.  High up on a hill sits the original house nestled in front of a pristine expansive forest and overlooking pastoral rolling hills and lakes below.  We felt like we were in the Swiss countryside with an occasional cow and green fields that seem to go on forever.

Although the buildings have seen better years, we were immediately charmed by their rustic patina.  If those buildings could talk, we’d love to sit there all day listening to stories of old.  Mallory and Dave made it out from their homebase in Quesnel, BC for the photoshoot and we had such a great time with them exploring the property and getting to know them as a couple.  We’re super excited to photograph their wedding this September in Kelowna and we even get to come back to the homestead on their wedding day for some more photos!!!

One of our favourite moments of the shoot:  When a weathered antique spoon was found outside.  We joked around that her great-great Grandfather could have ate from it.
