Samantha + Bryce // Gowlland Tod Park Engagement Session // Victoria BC Wedding Photographer

Samantha and Bryce are total morning people who love adventuring with their pup so for their engagement photos we headed out to Gowlland Tod Provincial Park for an early morning session. They introduced me to a beautiful portion of the park and we had the beach almost entirely to ourselves. I love when people include their pets in their sessions and I think their pup enjoyed himself - he's quite the little mountain dog!

Check out their wedding here.

Sarah + Adrian // Movie Date At Home // Victoria BC Photographer

Sarah and I went through junior secondary and high school together and have kept in touch via social media over the years. I was excited to have the opportunity to photograph her and her husband, Adrian, in their home a couple weeks ago! It was a rainy day outside which only made our movie date home session cozier. During my pre-session consult with Sarah, she mentioned they like to watch movies together so we made that the theme of the session. When I got there, I discovered that "liking movies" was an understatement. Adrian is actually a filmophile and has reviewed movies and interviewed directors for different publications, including interviewing Park Chan-wook, one of South Korea's most acclaimed filmmakers, and Blackfish director Gabriela Cowperthwaite. So cool! Check out The Green Screen of Death for his podcasts!

Jennifer and Daniel // Engagement Session // Victoria BC Family Photographer

I've known Jennifer since middle school and was so excited for her when she and Dan got engaged. When she told me she specifically wanted a feminist wedding photographer and asked if I'd be interested, I immediately said yes.

Between the unpredictable Victoria winter weather and them coming over from Vancouver, it took us a while to have their engagement session,  however our afternoon at Island View Beach was perfect. There was lots of laughter and cuddling as they told me how the ring Dan proposed with was passed down from his great-grandmother, and how his mom had stealthily attempted to find out if Jen liked the ring or not at a family dinner. We ended the session with some hot tea on the beach, just as the skies started to open and the rain came down.  

I can't wait for their wedding at Sea Cider Farm and Ciderhouse next year!
