We were stoked to meet up with Van and Eric again for their engagement session, it had been a while since we last saw then in July 2009. They suggested a great idea of doing some shots at Kits beach, and then head down to Burrard Station to catch some of the cherry blossoms. Here’s a list of top cherry blossom locations in Vancouver: http://www.vcbf.ca/cherryviewing/maps
Dan and I had a great time hanging out with these two, and they looked so great dressed up in formal attire! Thank goodness it was a beautiful sunny day – it rained cats and dogs the day after!
At Kits beach, we stopped by the Watermark Restaurant and borrowed their staircase for some candid shots. This was a great find, so simple to shoot through glass, and we love how these turned out!
Using my reflection to frame up Van and Eric…love this shot!
Dan and I joined Van and Eric inside to get some power shots! Dan did a great job of setting this one up
Van is so gorgeous in this shot! Great lighting, great pose, great expression!
We were just about to leave this location having just used to staircase, when we spotted a little bench and a cool gigantic lamp/pot…thing…up in the corner. I quickly wanted to snap a few shots and try out a pose we saw world renowned wedding photographer Jerry Ghionisteach in an online workshop. I shot it without expectations, but we both ended up shooting some cool shots! Love the vintage feel Dan gave these images in post!
Gettin’ a little artsy!
The Watermark Restaurant is a great architectural building!
Van brought a cute Japanese silk umbrella as a prop and it was great to use! Van makes this session look like it’s warm out….it was quite chilling down by the beach. Thanks Van for being so brave!
We all packed into Eric’s car and headed down to Burrard Station to capture the cherry blossom season. This location has cherry blossom trees all around, and serves an attraction to many…many with their cameras who snapped shots of the lovely bride and groom-to-be
This is one of my favorites of the day. Such a photogenic couple!
The sun was great and exactly where we needed it to be. We loved how Van and Eric interacted with each other.
We felt confident we had lots of great images and we were happy with what we had done…….but I knew Dan had one more shot up his sleeve that he wanted. He gets that look on his face, and wanders around looking for the best spot, then sets up the couple and does a few test shots, and shouts, “YES!” That was this shot. And the next.
We had a fantastic time with Van and Eric, we’re sooooo excited for their wedding on July 31st!
Thanks for a great shoot!
Kat & Dan
