The number two seemed to be following Carly & Chris' for their wedding this weekend. Through growing up, getting ready, the ceremony and all the way through the reception, two was everywhere we looked.
Getting Ready: Fairmont Pacific Rim
Photoshoot: Stanley Park
Ceremony & Reception: Vancouver Convention Centre
Steveston is a popular spot for an afternoon out. Walking along the water, visiting al the small shops, it manages to stay quaint and rustic despite all the people passing through. It's also a place of firsts. We've heard so many stories of couples that have had their first date, their first kiss, first (hopefully only) proposal, and even things as innocent and the first time couples held hands. While out on our e-shoot, Carly & Chris asked us "Can we get a shot with the mural?" Those who frequent the area know that this is a cliché photo spot that has become all but a requirement on trips out to the Steveston area. This time was a little different though. Carly's family is the proud owner of the cannery which suddenly gave Steveston a whole new level of meaning. This family connection got allowed us into a few areas that aren’t open to the general public, making this experience more unique still. We're often asked by people if we ever get bored of shooting in Steverston. While we're definitely very familiar with it, it's just a place. Each couple we're with brings a new element to the shoot and it's hard to get bored of seeing love like that between Carly & Chris. Understanding this place through Carly & Chris’ memories and eyes, understanding why they love it, that’s fresh perspective; even if we’ve been to Steveston a a few too many times. We hope you enjoy their Steveston love story and look at it with fresh eyes the way we did on this afternoon!
