Engagement: Stephanie + Marcus

Paris.  The Eiffel Tower.  A European getaway for two.  The perfect setting for a proposal…and away from the crowds in a city rich with romance and history, Marcus asked Stephanie to spend her future with him as his wife.  Neither can remember exactly the words he spoke, but all that matters is that she said yes!

I adore these two.  Their love, their chemistry, their laughter, their clothes…everything about Steph and Marcus’ engagement session was perfection.  We chose to shoot in the morning light and oh I hope I get to do this more often!  The two of them put much thought and creativity into their session and it really came through in the photos and in the fun we had…they arranged a sofa rental from Jessica at Trove Vintage and I love how it started things off.  Like I mentioned, Steph and Marcus’ outfits were another fabulous element – see her J Crew sequin skirt and his killer ensemble further down?  Credit goes to Dustin at LAunch, a boutique menswear store in Abbotsford.  Guys, please check it out…that’s all I’ll say for now :)

Let’s get to the photos…Stephanie and Marcus, I can’t thank you guys enough.  I’m sincerely excited for your wedding at Rowena’s next July…and you said it, Steph, can’t wait to take more photos with you!

Can you imagine her as a bride…seriously, so beautiful.

Part 2 of our shoot – Tracycakes.  Thank you again, Melissa :)

Two loves…sequins and cupcakes…

Finishing off our time together…but I could have shot them all day…
