when I first met Sarah & Mike, I had an immediate connection with both of them... you know when you meet someone and you are so comfortable, you feel as if you've known them forever? it was just like that and I knew it was going to be an absolute pleasure to work with them. I'm happy to say, I was right! they live in Alberta and we scheduled their engagement shoot well in advance for a weekend they were home in Vancouver. we had so much fun shooting that day, starting off at Jericho in the gorgeous shade of the park and then down to the beach... and then we headed off to UBC where Sarah & Mike are both long-time alumni. it was such a good day, I didn't even mind the fact I was working on Mother's Day... mainly because they are so much fun to hang out with! but also because, as a Mother's Day gift, my fabulous daughter came along with me to assist. I love having her with me when I'm working because it feels so much less like work... and she even got a few awesome shots off as well! like the one in the upper right of this series... it was such a nice compliment to my up-close images. she actually got quite a few great shots that day... what can I say, my kid rocks. and apparently takes good photos, too!
Sarah and Mike, thank you for sharing yourselves so naturally that day! I am soooo looking forward to your wedding in few weeks...
