Meet Brett & Jeff.
In my eyes they are the perfect combination of city meets country. They met through a mutual friend and they both had told their friends to inter up them half way through the blind date just in case but as the date unfolded they tucked their phones away and missed the saving call to everyone’s delight. It clicked! And I could tell right away when we got together for the E-Session. I can’t believe we captured all these different settings. It was simply effortless.
They will be getting married later this summer at the gorgeous Nicklaus North Golf Course in Whistler.
So what do you think when we say E-Session aka Engagement Session?
Well we think sexy, steamy, romantic, intimate, beautiful, unique, celebration and of course love. E-Sessions have come a long way from the stiff formal look that was required to send out an announcement. These days what I love about them is the perfect timing for an excuse to take a moment for yourself. In the planning and the real life fast pace, it,s a moment to pause, to just be and celebrate you! A chance to get comfy with the lens and to bring your own unique feel to the session.
Here are our top 10 from this past year;
#10 Keeping it fun, relax and playful where the smiles tell it all.
#9 Be part of the scenic beauty that surrounds us.
#8 A little Urban fun and a funky sign.
#7 After a while you forget I’m there and you just indulge in a quiet moment (Those are the best!)
#6 What can I say, a BW classic with Miss Macy (The Horse) feeling like she might be intruding.
#5 Bringing your own style and hobbies makes all the difference
#4 I did say steamy sexy love right?
#3 Bring in your personality with a little colour accent or a whole wall!
#2 Sunny afternoon, the wind blowing and a moment captured.
#1 Now nothing says sexy romantic more then a sunset, open barn and a warm blanket.
Which one is your favourite?
This evening was one I won’t soon forget. Vancouver is so full of life and the varieties of walks of life are vast compared to what a normal day brings you in the Sea to Sky corridor. My couple was incredible and there was a certain vibrational energy to the evening. It was one of stepping out, exploration, new beginnings with a little anticipation, boldness, gratitude and deep love. A bold moment was stopping all traffic on Robson (on a Canucks hockey night, no less) for a photo shoot. But more about that in another post! Back to this one ….
… while capturing them in the streets of Vancouver just following their ceremony at the Vancouver Art Gallery, we came across this sight. A violinist playing Johan Pachelbel Canon in D Major at an intersection. Standing there with my newly wed couple, it was perfectly surreal. I so love what I do.
If your eyes are open, there’s a lesson in everything. The lesson for me today came out of left field. Unexpected. Juxtaposed. Peaceful.
I spent the later half of today scouting out Vancouver Art Gallery for a wedding that I’m shooting there tomorrow. I’m seriously excited about this for two reasons. One, the venue is amazing and two, it’s currently surrounded by Occupy Vancouver; it’s tents, people and crazy signage. It’s a rather charged area and tomorrow will be interesting to say the least and I can’t wait. As I’m checking out different locations, angles and the lighting effect in the busy streets of Vancouver, I had to sit down. It’s a lot to take down there with the pulsating city life around you. So I took a little piece of the stairs for myself, sat down, breathed and refocused.
Then I heard laughter, the silly romantic kind. My eyes searched out where it was coming from and there they were. Hidden under all the street noise and people standing for their rights, this couple was having their own moment. They created a little bubble amidst it all and found their own rhythm to dance to. Under stars.
Sometimes when you sit still, a magical moment appears out of nowhere. They made me smile and they made me sit still. For a while.
