What: Soft and romantic summer bridal portrait session at the beach
Where: Kitsilano Beach in Vancouver, BC
Ever since we arrived in Vancouver at the beginning of July, I’ve been chomping at the bit to photograph bridal portraits at one of Vancouver’s many beautiful beaches. I’ve joined a few meet-up groups for local photographers and just my luck Ronald Lee, who moderates one of the online groups, posted about the possibility of producing a bridal portrait session with professional models and hair/make-up. Perfect! Ronald kindly booked the models and the MUA, provided the wedding dresses and transported us to the beach for a lovely golden-hour shoot. Since I knew I had an ethereal/summery look in mind, I also styled a bouquet with florals from Jem Florist, a flower shop just around the corner from the apartment where I’ve been staying in East Vancouver. The minute we stepped out of the car at Kitsilano Beach I took a look around at the sparkling water and blue-green mountains and said to myself, “Wow, I really live in such a beautiful place now!”. It’s finally sinking in that I’m a West Coaster! I had a great time working with Ronald, Sydney and Myra - thanks so much for the great opportunity to work together! For a little extra styling practice, at home I photographed my bubbah’s vintage rose quartz engagement ring with the bouquet. (I wear her ring every day and always receive compliments on it!). I love how the color palette all came together. My summer boho bridal dreams came true!
