Heather and Travis visited the island a couple of weeks ago and we managed to fit in an engagement session at East Sooke Park. These two are clearly in better shape than I am and it was a bit hard to keep up – and she was wearing heels! Sessions in the beautiful wilderness of East Sooke are always fun though and result in images with a distinctly west coast feel. It was super sunny, as you can see, so I apologize to those of you with snow. Travis and Heather are adorable together and I can’t wait for their wedding in August.
Ashley and William met me at East Sooke Park early last Saturday morning. I hadn’t been there in years and it was long overdue. There was almost nobody else out there, which made taking photos so easy. The sun was bright and we were all wishing we hadn’t dressed so warm, but the photos came out beautifully. These two are adorable together and I can’t wait for their wedding later this month.
Megan and Luke met me at East Sooke Park a couple of weeks ago for their engagement session. I was feeling a little under the weather, but their sweetness and sense of fun cheered me right up. We wandered around a bit and found a fantastic variety of settings. This park is definitely worth the drive. I’m excited for their wedding next year at one of my favourite venues, Merridale Cidery.
Jennifer, Gord, and their six-month old son Jasper were in East Sooke a couple weeks ago visiting family. They had me along for a documentary family photography session at the beach at East Sooke Park and then some time at their family’s home nearby. I don’t typically do family portraits, so I was thrilled that they wanted to do a session documenting an actual day in their lives. Jasper is a very lively and expressive baby – it was actually tough to get him to stop looking at the camera (babies just don’t understand photojournalism). The weather was perfect and I had a lot of fun. I’d love to do some more sessions like these.
I met Carly and Brent out in Sooke a couple of weeks ago for their engagement session at East Sooke Park. It was such a great location, with stunning views, and a bit of a workout for us all. Carly and Brent are a lot of fun and Brent kept Carly laughing the whole time with his goofy faces. I can’t wait for their wedding in August.
