These two are absolute naturals with so much love for one another. I've known Jessica since high school so this was extra special to capture this engagement session. We started the session in the forest, and if you don't know me already I could spend all day in the forest. It is incredibly grounding and makes my soul so happy. You may think that the forest can be limited because it's just all greenery, but it can still provide so much variety.
In the second part of the session, we headed to the water at Acadia Beach. I grew up in Vancouver but I have never been there before and it's definitely a hidden gem. The access to the water with mountain views in the back? What more can you ask for? The only thing to keep in mind is the timing when you go because the high tide will leave little to no beach. These two were such troopers and volunteered to go into the water. Always recommend getting in the water at the end of each session, after all the must-need images have been captured, because there is no turning back!
In all seriousness, how incredibly dreamy did the images turn out though, I am obsessed!! There are so many other beautiful spots in the forest, the local beaches nearby, and in the UBC area and campus itself. I highly recommend considering it for any photoshoot because there is truly so much to explore on this beautiful part of Vancouver.
