Since I just moved to BC a year ago, I thought having a wedding promotion so I can have a successful business here would be a great plan. I’m super excited I ended up doing it as I met a ton of fun couples that fit in with my style. Cate & Matt were the first couple to book me through that promotion, and I’m SO ecstatic  they ended up booking me as they are a super delightful couple! They booked me their spring engagement shoot and their drop dead gorgeous wedding which just passed over this long weekend in September! 🙂

Their engagement shoot had so many epic things happening in it, they truly trusted me to do my thing which is great! I call them the Notebook couple as they just seemed super connected to each other and weren’t afraid to be silly goofs, you could feel that chemistry when I first met them. We started the shoot at Pacific Spirit Park close to the UBC. One of my favourite spots to visit, so I was super excited to be able to finally do a creative shoot there. We also took purple smoke bombs and let those go, I thought that would be a perfect contrast to the greenery of the forest and it didn’t disappoint. That was actually my first try at using the smoke bombs, and now I’m hooked as it gives it a colourful fair tale wash over the images. The sun was filtering through the forest which was just mind blowing to see! ♥ You only have just over a minute though so you have to be fast and chase after it as the wind is taking it away, which made my adrenaline pump even harder to get those creative shots for them.

Cate and Matt also brought their dog Arlo, which is perfect as I’m a dog mom too and adore doggies and Arlo was so cute and just full of so much energy just running around everywhere making for great candids of him. He was sniffing inside this bush and I got a hilarious photo of his doggy bum. haha!

Then after the park the couple wanted a change of scenery so we headed to Spanish Banks Beach which I also adore as well! The sun was just about to set so the whole beach lit up. I got a ton more fun candids of them, Matt was giving Cate a piggy back ride, and then he would lift her up in his arms just for laughs. Arlo loved the beach too, as soon as we got there he immediately went for a swim, and then was running around, full of crazy puppy energy. Of course I couldn’t leave without doing some sunset shots of them snuggling against that breathtaking mountain backdrop with that still beach water and endless white sand . I will forever be inspired living out here, there’s just so much nature to take in and discover. 🙂

Stay tuned for their wedding post!
