What do you do when two electricians decide to get together for an engagement shoot? You do your best to stop writing too many puns on your blog post:) All kidding aside, I must confess that when this couple asked for photos in front of ‘coloured walls’ it definitely sparked (sorry, pun there) some creative ideas. Vancouver has some vibrant coloured walls and beautiful murals to photograph. The hard part was choosing which ones to shoot in front of:)Read More
Sometimes, small and intimate is exactly what we need:) We were thrilled to hear that our friend Glen who we met a few years back at his sisters wedding was going to have a small intimate wedding with just family and the closest of friends this past November. Glen & Lynn had mentioned how they loved seeing some photos we had photographed at the Vancouver Art Gallery on our website so we arranged to have their engagement photos in the beautiful rotunda of the museum.Read More
"What location would you suggest if we wanted something more urban/edgy /artsy? As you know, Paul and I are a bit weird so we're not going for the traditional pleasant park photos--ha ha."
That was what Melissa wrote when we were discussing possible locations for their family portrait session. In the end, we decided on Gastown, which happened to be a perfect location to feature this unique & lovely family. We're more accustomed to photographing weddings in Gastown, but family sessions work equally as well in this great historic location.
Leah & Matthew were some of the most well-behaved kids I've photographed. Such sweet adorable angels! We had so much fun with sweet Leah, who basically agreed to everything I asked her to do and it resulted in some beautiful photos! Check out their GC/Vogue-inspired editorial spreads:)
Mathew was a little more of a moving target, but that's only because he's still so young. We still managed to get some great images with him, which shows you he will have great potential the next time we take his photos:)
This shot of them by the chain link is my most favourite image of the two of them and really captures the true essence of who they really are at this precious stage in their life.
I'm sure many of your have seen the photo of the bridal party being attacked by a giant T-Rex. It's a photo composite that's gone viral and Paul wanted to stage something fun like that for this photoshoot. So, instead of the T-Rex, we did a snake attack off the Harbour Tower. It was great fun sourcing the right snake for the shot and then doing the photoshop work behind it. Not completely realistic-looking when you're working with a plastic snake (I would never call myself an expert compositor), but I think the results look pretty hilarious!
