Cassia and Gil - Vancouver Engagement Shoot - Richmond Tea House

Wedding season is upon us!  I'm very excited for all of my beautiful weddings this year, one of which will be Cassia and Gil's wedding later this summer.  I spent the afternoon with them this week for their engagement shoot.  April may have given us a warm and sunny taste of summer, but so far the month of May has given us plenty of rain.  When you live in Vancouver, you don't have to love the rain, but you do have to get used to it.  As a result, Cassia and Gil's engagement shoot went slightly different than we had planned, but we still had a lovely time documenting a typical day in their lives together. We started at one of their favourite restaurants in their neighbourhood in Richmond, the Leisure Tea House.  It was my first visit to a Tea House and I have to say, I loved it!  The incredible fresh fruit teas and homemade scones and even the tuna on a waffle was delicious... I'm getting hungry just remembering how yummy it was.

From there, we changed our plans of an outdoor shoot and had fun improvising under cover at their condo!  It just shows that shooting in the rain can be fun... we refused to let it ruin our day and definitely made the most of it.

Then, we moved indoors and Cassia and Gil got cozy and comfortable on the couch, snuggling together with their dogs while the rain continued outside...

Thank you, Cassia and Gil for being such good sports and having fun shooting with me on a typical, rainy Vancouver day!  You two are beautiful together and a pleasure to photograph... looking forward to your big day in August.
