This couple came to their engagement shoot with their game ON! Sue's hair and make-up was professionally done and they came ready with three outfit changes each! They were a photographer’s dream. The way we see it, how often do you get professional photos done? None of us are getting any younger…so why not have fun with your engagement shoot and go all out!! Granted, you have to feel like you. If you feel best in a hoodie and bedhead, then please rock up in the oldest, most comfy hoodie you have!

Our favourite look was Sue in a sequin dress and Farid in an undone bowtie. That was them truly being themselves! These two have a romantic and glamorous look that you don’t see too often these days. Again, this was another couple so perfectly suited for each other! We are so lucky to meet such different and perfectly matched couples all the time. It really makes us really believe there is someone out there for everyone.

Karen and Allen wanted blossoms for their engagement shoot. Unfortunately as we got closer to the shoot date, we witnessed more pink blossoms falling off trees. It was like a visual reminder of our engagement session's deadline! Lucky, in a moment of panic it hit us, Burnaby Mountain! Higher up = cooler temperatures = later blossom season. Sure enough, as we drove up, we noticed the blossoms were PERFECT! Just like how Karen and Allen are for each other!

Karen and Allen reminded us about the value of choosing an engagement shoot. When they first booked they opted out on an engagement shoot but later on they changed their minds, and I think we are all thankful for it. First of all, they booked so long ago that the engagement shoot was a great opportunity for us to reconnect with them so we didn’t feel like strangers on the wedding day. This is vital in helping us capture more relaxed and intimate photos on their big day. It also helped us to learn about their best angles and what they were comfortable with in terms of posing. Lastly, and most important, it helped them learn what kind of photos they like of themselves. Karen and Allen are a classic couple who like traditional, elegant and candid photos.

I think it surprised all four of us just what a great time we had together that day. We can’t wait to shoot their wedding!

I've known Anna for over 15 years now, ever since the days of Boyz II Men and high school band. I do not know a more friendly and bubbly personality, and so when I met Daryl for the first time, I was ecstatic for Anna. Daryl is as solid as solid can be. A great guy, easy-going, and a perfect match of a man for Anna's persona. And what do you get when you combine these two happy and fun people? A utterly great wedding, that's what.

While it was a marathon wedding, we had a good times shooting from morning to dusk. The tea ceremony was boisterous, but still a few tears were shed. Heading over to Deer Lake Park, we had to compete with two other weddings for our fair share of shooting locations. Everyone was having a good time, and why not? The sun was out in full force. Had this wedding taken a few days earlier, or even the next day, it would have been a typical Vancouver weekend, filled with grey clouds and the wet stuff. Anna and Daryl hit the weather jackpot!

The wedding concluded into the wee morning hours at Kirin restaurant. What a great destination for a wedding as well, as we had a whole room to ourselves for a photobooth that everyone was getting into.

All in all, it was a perfect wedding for a couple that's perfect for each other. I will be sure to check in on these two for at least 15 more years to come.

We had a mission: find cherry blossoms. Antonio and Angie helped us brainstorm places to shoot, but in the end, we and the very sweet couple settled on Steveston. Any why not? You have cute shops, a lovely beach, a gorgeous walkway, and a some fantastic heritage buildings lining the shore. Oh yeah, and the cherry blossoms? Unadulterated and in full bloom. It helped that they lived in Richmond too!

We strolled, we photographed, and we had a great time. They fit very nicely in each other's arms... we cannot wait for the wedding in July!

Karel and Melissa are a lovely, down-to-earth couple, well traveled, and always the ‘life’ at any party. They are friends of my husband and I had the pleasure of getting to know them while we all taught in Taiwan together many years ago. Well actually, Melissa and I taught, Karel was a student advisor who for some reason could never be found in his office when it happened to be a good surf day :)

I had such a good time photographing their maternity shoot, full of laughs and giggles, I felt so blessed that this is what I do for a job. They are expecting to have their little one (named Felix, if doctors guessed correctly) in May. I can’t wait to see what an amazing individual this little person becomes with such wonderful, well-rounded parents.

Lisa and Jeff flew in from Singapore to have a West Coast Wedding. This couple is the whole package. Not only are they ridiculously beautiful on the outside, they’re even more attractive and super sweet on the inside…and when you're with them, it’s quite easy to see all the love that they have for each other.
The morning started off in a somewhat hectic manner. Unexpectedly dreadful traffic threw the wedding schedule out the door and with it, all the time for wedding portraits. Determined to get a few pictures of this beautiful bride, I found an empty room in the church and snapped a few shots, just minutes before she walked down the aisle. The ceremony was beautiful and with the stress of the day behind them, everyone let loose and lived it up for the lively reception at the Salmon house. After everyone had just the right amount of drinks, they ended the night with a hilarious game of Truth or Dare, complete with prizes for the brave friends and family who participated. Conclusion: legendary.

This is a very special “Save the Date” post, featuring the legendary co-CEO of Blush Wedding Photography, Kristy and her lovely husband, Ken.

With engagement photos, instead of having couples lovingly tilt their heads towards each other with a picturesque view in the background, there is a new trend towards engagement shoots with a theme or with an editorial flare. These images capture more of the couple’s character by photographing them doing their favorite activities; i.e. camping, biking the seawall, a night dressed up on the town, or, for the more playful types, a pillow fight! These photos are a great way to add a fun twist to personal wedding blogs, “Save the Date” flyers, or as a personal touch attached to gift favours.

With this “Save the Date”, we wanted to tie in the wedding’s vintage/modern theme on a relaxing Sunday stroll through the city streets. You might notice the “clever” inclusion of a few carefully selected colours: white, grey, black, and yellow. When the wedding pictures go up (any day now), you’ll definitely see the lemon theme carried over.

After weeks of rain and hunting for umbrellas, the clouds parted and it was a picture perfect day for Erin and Rob’s intimate outdoor wedding ceremony at Queen Elizabeth Park. We started their photo session at the top of the hill and meandered our way through the park -stopping to climb a tree or two- till we got to the bottom. There in the center of the park was a small gathering of their closest family members waiting to watch this couple say, “I do.” It was one walk in the park I think they’ll never forget.
