As much as I love shooting locally, I relish at the opportunity to capture beautiful moments in areas that extends beyond Vancouver’s borders. Such was the case with Sam and Heidi’s pre-wedding session where we drove down to the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival held in Burlington. Ever since I pitched the idea to them to have their photos taken in the tulip fields outside of Vancouver and they enthusiastically agreed, I’ve been eagerly awaiting the opportunity; not only because of how beautiful the tulip fields were, but because I knew I would have a fantastic time working with Sam and Heidi.
And I definitely did.
Having been involved from the beginning of the creative planning process to the end of the session itself, they were a delight to work with all throughout. Being a wedding photographer, it’s definitely a treat to know that a couple is looking forward to a photo shoot as much as you are!
The tulip festival itself runs annually from April 1 – April 30. Given how moody the weather gods have been as of late, we were afraid that the shoot would need to be taken elsewhere in case it rained rain. Luckily for us, the rain didn’t start until after our Sam and Heid’s pre-wedding session was over! Now get ready for some color overload!
