Vancouver Engagement: James & Michelle

It’s in the way he looks at her and makes her smile and laugh. In the way she feels at home in his arms. It’s in the way he surprised her with a sweeping, romantic proposal in a castle, no less. While on vacation and at a winery in Napa Valley, James proposed marriage to Michelle surrounded by candles (everywhere!) and a wine and cheese spread in a tucked away corner for just the two of them.

Now planning their forevers together, I had the privilege of photographing their engagement session this past weekend. While they love the city, James and Michelle also simply love hanging out, low key, with – what else? –  a little wine and cheese. And so we combined both for their shoot in Vancouver and it was perfect.

Thank you, James and Michelle, for the fun and being so wonderful!


After roaming the streets of Gastown, we left the city behind for Spanish Banks and had the beach to ourselves…
