One of the things about 2013 that makes me very grateful is the fact that I have the honor of working with so many of my friends who are getting married this year! Even though there are those who advocate against mixing business with friendships, I can’t help but say that I absolutely love photographing friends! Take Stefanie and Benson for example. I met Stefanie back in UBC when we took a second year Chinese history class. Although we probably don’t remember anything from the course itself, luckily Stefanie remembered how obsessed I was with photography even way back then. You can imagine how happy I was to hear from her again after almost 6 years, and to be asked to photograph her’s and her fiancé Benson’s wedding.
Benson proposed to Stefanie at Granville Island, and that’s also where we took their engagement photos. They expressed an interest in having pictures taken both during the day and night, so what we did was take some photos before sunset, had dinner at the Cat’s Social House (love their quesadillas!) and finished off with some photos at night. If you’ve been following our work, you’ll know that we absolutely enjoy photographing couples at night as that lends to a more dramatic look and feel, which both our couples and us love!
Looking forward to their wedding in August!
