We first met Kiersten and Josh in January at the All Dressed in White Wedding Show at the Sheraton Guildford hotel. I remember talking with them as they stopped by our booth, and hearing about their winter wedding coming up the following January. Lucky for them, and for us, Josh’s name was drawn for our show give-a-way. They won our Ultimate Engagement Session with hair and makeup by the fabulous Makeup by Rae, and dinner at The Boathouse on us!
About a week after the show I was able to meet up with them at a local coffee shop. They told me more about their big day and we planned out their engagement session. Funny enough I found out they live super close to me, and they also have a happy dog named Ruby. We had probably even passed each other while walking our dogs through the neighbourhood!
They really wanted to have a snowy engagement session, and with all the snow we had this past winter it didn’t seem like a hard request! So we planned a date at the end of February and headed up Seymour Mountain to play in the snow. It was the second time that I had to bring out my snowshoes for a photo session. The running joke throughout the session was that although I was the only one with snowshoes on, I was also the only who fell over!
After getting all the snow photos and also getting a few with Ruby, we headed down to Cates Park to take in the sunset. To me these looked like two totally different sessions done at completely different times, which is awesome! This is one of the many reasons I love the lower mainland: you can basically get two totally different sessions within a short drive of each other!
To say we are excited for their January wedding at Swan-e-Set is an understatement. But I’m also super excited for doggy play dates at the park with these two amazing people, and Ruby of course!
