Sapperton Landing Engagement Session in New Westminster

Our studio is located in New Westminster, so it’s pretty common that couples that book with us also want to shoot in the area.  For most of our clients they don’t have a history of modeling and have little experience being in front of camera, one thing that can make the experience a little more comfortable is to get used to the camera being on you away from the crowd. Sapperton Landing is actually one of my favourite locations to head to just because it’s quiet yet has a lot of character. Usually, there is no one around the area, which makes it a little easier to snuggle up and let those intimate and romantic feelings loose.

Portraits are always way better when there is a bit of vulnerability involved – when you allow yourself to truly be seen, so having portraits taken at a place that is a bit more secluded, can help couples feel a bit more safe, and can be a great way to learn to relax and let those walls down both on and off camera.
