We had the chance recently to go to Vancouver so Regan could run the LuLuLemon SeeWhez half marathon. So we went a few days earlier and had some fun exploring the area. We did a lot of stuff in the days we were there. Regan’s brother and Sister in Law live in the area so we were able to stray with them and they were our tour guides as we explored the area. Some highlights:

1. White Rock Pier. Great fish and chips and a beautiful harbour.

2. Capilano Suspension Bridge:  Tons of crowds and but still totally worth it. Beautiful spot that should be on the list of visiting the area. The views are amazing.3. Lighthouse Park.  A beautiful spot. It’s a short beautiful hike in the beautiful woods to the beach and a beautiful lighthouse. 4. Music Festivals.   We found out there are tons of fun musical festivals in Vancouver area in the summer. Even free ones. We enjoyed live music. This is the Boom Booms. 
5. Deep Cove. Oh my this place was amazing. I’d go back in a heart beat! We rented single kayaks from Deep Cove Kayak Centre. It was AMAZING. The views, the water, the evening light, the seal swimming with us. Amazing.Other highlights: The Chinese Night Market, the great record shops, and the graffiti walls.
We also ate LOTS of great food. So much good food in Vancouver. Just a couple that stood out…  1. Antons.  and 2. Pure Bread.  So much good food to be found in Vancouver! It’s a great place to explore and visit.

Little Max is SUCH a beautiful baby!!! So small and tiny and he’s got quite the cry on him! I made him cry a few times. Whoops! Good thing is momma was patient and after his tummy was full of milk he relaxed and went to sleep. It’s so much fun to be with a family as they discover family life together. So much newness. New love. New exhaustion. New experiences. New parenthood. It’s such a tender time. And I’m so happy to document in for them.

Man I love seeing how couples are together. It’s one of the reasons I love wedding photography! Each relationship is different and special and i love watching how people are together. These two are very sweet to each other. And i LOVE how Leah looks at Aaron. Her eyes are just filled with love. Happy for these two love birds! I was glad their day went well for them.

 Aaron lost his dad to cancer shortly before the wedding. Speaking from my own experience, handling death so close to your wedding is hard. But thankfully they were in the temple where we believe in eternal marriage and eternal life. That helps soothe the heartache of the loss and gives a sense of peace. I’m happy they went there together and that they have each other forever.

Isnt’ love so grand?! That’s what I was thinking while I was taking these pictures in this lovely light with this lovely couple. I am so so happy for Julie. She comes from one of my favourite families. And I’m so happy she found someone to love and cherish her. They go so nicely together.

These two both served missions in Australia and recently got home. And they met at an Australia party that she planned with his friend. And then he asked his friend if he was gonna ask her out and if not he was going too. He did shortly after.

She noticed him and thought he was cute……… so she avoided him at first. And when she says this he laughs at how silly that is.

One of their favourite dates was when they climbed bears hump in Waterton. He had packed a cute lunch with her favourite fruits and chocolate bars.

She says he is a hard worker and is a leader. And he says that she is someone everyone loves.

She says that his quiet nature that people sometimes don’t notice his humour but that she really enjoys it.

Together they are moving to Edmonton for her to go to school in the fall for Court reporting and he is going to work for a year before going to school for Landscaping.He has opened her car door every time since they met.

And on another side note….this photo session was one of my favourites of all time. I wish more people would realise that the light is SO important. The feeling in these pictures comes from a couple things and one major one is the lovely light that comes only in the evening before sunset. The mountains are always amazing in Waterton but the way they look at sunset is a whole different feeling. Light matters. And so does love 😉
