Meet Erin & Nathan..
Erin won my couples session competition back in May and we were able to do the session last month.
Here’s her winning entry ;)They were recently married and I wish them all the best for the future!
“Nathan just asked me to marry him two weeks ago but it has been quite a journey for us as we met almost eight years ago! We spent a lovely week together in Powell River where we were doing an orchestral program (he plays the viola and I play the violin) but though the sparks were flying we ended up remaining friends for about five years. Finally, just as I was getting ready to leave to do a Masters degree in London, UK, Nathan decided that it would be a good idea to get together. (Perfect timing!) So I spent two years in England and Nathan and I spent a lot of time flying back and forth between continents. One time he missed his flight (the day before my year-end recital – as if I wasn’t stressed out enough already!) but managed to sweet talk another airline into giving him a one-way ticket for less than an arm and a leg. It was NOT funny at the time, but I guess we can laugh about it now. I am just glad we are living in the same city now… so at least he wont miss the wedding! Ha ha. Actually, he is a wonderful and devoted fiance, and the best match I could ever have imagined! Guess where he took me to propose? To Powell River! Here’s to many more years of friendship and love!”
I had a great time shooting these two in Stanley Park, a beautiful area of Vancouver. Awesome views of the Lions Gate Bridge, North Vancouver and downtown from the park had to be incorporated into this session.
