I first met Amber and Ryan while shooting Jami and Nick’s wedding a couple years ago. You’d recognize Amber as Jami’s maid of honor (I’m excited for a mini bride re-union this June). Ryan proposed in the summer a couple years ago on a scenic summer gondola ride in Whistler. There may also be a funny little addition about a nauseous man stuck with them setting the most perfect romantic mood – ha! We had planned to do their engagement session at their one year engagement anniversary, but we post-poned since our location fell victim to flooding!
So we met in the fall and chose some nearby spots by the river in Chilliwack where Ryan enjoys fishing. In my prior location scouting, I learned that where there are plentiful fish, there are also bears. So if anyone would like to use bears as props, I now know where we can find them ;) I loved that they brought along their new addition, Australian Shepherd puppy, Sadie. I’m such a cat person, but I have to say she is one beautiful dog! She was so sweet and cooperative.. I’m pretty sure we could include her in the wedding. I can’t wait for June!
