Dan and I were so excited to see Kaitlyn and Bryce again since we last saw them earlier this year. Our initial meeting was one of those where we all just hit it off instantly.
Kaitlyn and Bryce knew exactly where they wanted their engagement session at: Buntzen Lake in Anmore! They go to this lake every summer with their friends, blow up a little dingy, load the guys up, and tie a blow up mattress at the end of the dingy for the girls to sun tan on…sigh…sounds so relaxing!
Dan had been to Buntzen Lake before as a kid with his dad and brothers, so it was a nice trip down memory lane for him. It was my first time up there, and I can’t wait to start heading there more often to enjoy the cold water and the hot sunshine.
We got together at 9am on a beautiful Saturday morning, to beat the crazy rush. Even at 9am there were tons of people staking their claim of picnic benches and setting up bbqs for the day. We managed to still get some photos without too many people in the background.
We had a great time hanging out with Kaitlyn and Bryce, they’re such an awesome couple and we can’t wait to shoot their wedding this October!
Some favs of the day!!
Buntzen Lake has some beautiful trails to go hiking, and we found some nice shaded areas in the trails. Love this close up of Kaitlyn!
Bright sunny day! As you can see…lots of people around in the morning! Love this pose! Kaitlyn and Bryce didn’t need much coaching…they’re naturals!Kaitlyn and Bryce are so fun at heart!They both have such great smiles! Nice bling!After a quick outfit change, we shot around this field, and then headed for the water for some fun!One of my favorites!Dan had his camera dangerously close to the water! And for this shot…well…Dan will do what it takes to get the shot! Shirt off, keys and wallet on land….and in he went, neck deep, camera in air, it was hilarious! Kaitlyn and Bryce we awesome troopers and got wet as well, even though it was a bit cold! Thanks for lending us your sandals too! Moving on to shallower waters…haha! After the session, Dan and I stayed behind a bit to shoot a few details and to soak up a bit of sun, mainly to dry off Dan’s wet shorts! We had an amazing time with Kaitlyn and Bryce, Their fun and adventurous nature and friendliness made it so easy to photograph them. It really didn’t feel like “work”, it was more like hanging out with awesome friends and a camera at a beautiful lake, and goofing around! We can’t wait for their wedding day!
