newly engaged happy couple, summer time in vancouver, down by the river

Photos by the wonderful Christine Pinenaar Photography

I am SO excited to finally be sharing part I of our engagement photos we did in Vancouver during the summer.  I know it’s probably a little non-traditional to do engagement photos so far from the wedding (we don’t even have a solid date yet!) but we were eager to capture the excitement of the engagement before I made the big move to London with Ken.  We also wanted the photos to be done in our home town of Vancouver. Without knowing when the wedding would happen or what country we would be living in in a year, we wanted to make sure we had photos that captured our roots – home in Vancouver. Thankfully, Christine was able to squeeze us in before the big move, which was just a few weeks after these photos were taken.

The magic of Instagram led us to Christine as our photographer.  I had been following her on Instagram for months and knew I wanted to contact her as soon as Ken and I decided to do engagement photos.  Turns out she followed me on Instagram too! It was meant to be!

We had such an amazing experience with her and are over the moon happy with the photos she took for us. And I hope you love them too! If you’re in the Vancouver or Okanagan area, I would recommend you contact Christine for your photoshoot needs!

Stay tuned for Part II of our shoot in the next few weeks!

    I was recently here and this is an amazing place for a wedding. I got a little carried away with the open bar at New York wedding venues. An open bar allows you to like any sort of music, even the most awful. Anyway, for those of you thinking to marry, this is the perfect spot.
