Granville Island and West End Vancouver Engagement Session

Brad and I were so stoked to shoot this Granville Island engagement session. We shoot at Granville Island quite often but since this location was so meaningful for the couple, this time we actually felt really excited to shoot there. Because Katherine and Christian lived downtown at the time this place carried special meaning as it was somewhere they frequented. Just before their wedding in December they moved out to the suburbs. It was really important to them to get pictures in a place they had spent to much time together before they made their big move to their new condo. They really wanted to be able to look back at their pictures and remember all the great times they had shared at Granville Island together.

After we shot some portraits and candids over at Granville Island we actually caught the Aquabus and went over to Beach Ave where their old apartment was and shot around their stomping grounds. It was so nice to just share such a gorgeous sunset with them, and Christian is quite the comedian, so we spent most of the time trying not to pee our pants as we all teased each other about our silly quirks and laughed our asses off!
