I first met Katie in the summer of 2016. It was the wedding of one of her closest friends, Maria & Brad at Manning Park that I was photographing, and even as I captured their getting ready moments the morning of, you could tell the bond between these two friends was strong. Katie seemed so sweet and her loyalty to those close to her was apparent from the start.
Fast forward a year to 2017, and just as summer started drawing to a close, I received an email from Katie. I could instantly sense her excitement as I read her words – she was recently engaged and couldn’t wait to embrace this stage in her relationship.
As soon as we got together for coffee and Katie introduced me to her fiancé John, the connection between these two was strong. I loved watching how they balance each other out. John possessed a quiet strength & sense of calmness that perfectly complimented Katie’s loving enthusiasm & detailed planning.
After rescheduling due to rain (I mean, it IS fall in the Lower Mainland – who doesn’t have to reschedule a session at least once during this time of year?!) I think we all ended up grateful for the reschedule because WOW, did the weather ever blow us away! Not only were the leaves at the peak of their colourful show, but clear skies left the warm sun shining which provided us with the MOST GORGEOUS golden hour. The sun truly showed off for us (I mean come on, just look at those stunning sun flares and that golden glowy haze – to die for!!).
These two were so playful & loving with each other during their entire session. We had so much fun exploring the park together and taking full advantage of the changing seasons (because really, who can resist a good leaf fight??) I am so excited to share a few of my favourites with you guys & am looking forward to seeing these two tie the knot at Whonnock Lake next summer.
