When Valentina & Jonathan asked me to photograph their anniversary session- I knew it was going to be special. We started the evening in Gastown and ended with a fun loop around Stanley Park. If you follow my blog you know that I shoot a lot a Stanley Park and specifically Third Beach. I have done countless sessions there and I will say the light has never quite looked like this. These are the sunsets and light I dream of (although it rarely looks the way it did that night). There were some incredible pink/purple/orange tones in the sky and that translated to a beautiful and inspiring scene to create a pastel look. This photo below was one of the last ones I took that night and I love it! I chose to post the photos we took in Stanley Park because they were my favourite.
Valentina & Jonathan were married nearly a year ago in their home country of Venezuela. Valentina wanted to wear her wedding dress one more time (I mean who wouldn’t?! It’s gorgeous). She chose a Pronovias Gown for her wedding day and brought along her incredible royal blue Badgely Mischka heels. I don’t really do “trash the dress” sessions often. This was more of a fun post bridal session/rock the dress and Valentina ROCKED IT! V & J have called Vancouver home for about 2 years now and absolutely love living in Vancouver. I had such a special time with them learning all about Venezuela and maybe one day in the future I’ll have the chance to go there.
Thank you both for having me capture this session! Happy 1st anniversary and wishing you many more wonderful years together.
