We caught a beautiful Spring afternoon for David and Natasha’s engagement session in Gastown, and I couldn’t have been happier. These two are originally from Chilliwack but live in Alberta, so we had a small window of time while they were out for a visit, in which to document this oh so exciting season in their life. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – engagement sessions are so important! There’s no better way to set yourselves up for incredible wedding day portraits, or get to know your photographer and vice versa. Plus, they’re fun. And even more so, this is a time in your life worth documenting. Take a moment from the craziness of wedding planning to focus on the most important elements of your wedding day – the two of you, and your love for one another.

But back to David and Natasha ;) They will be saying their I do’s this September at the gorgeous Fraser River Lodge, and after our session together, and I know it’s going to be amazing.

Natasha, you’re gorgeous!
Jasmine Hoffman will be doing her wedding day makeup, and so she scheduled her trial for the day of their engagement shoot. I love when brides do this! It gives them a great idea of how their wedding day makeup will photograph.
