I had the pleasure of taking LeHien and Sydney’s engagement photos over the Victoria Day long weekend. Since they already had a pre-wedding photo shoot during the daytime while visiting Vietnam, we felt like doing something different this time so I photographed their entire engagement session at night. Because there’s hardly any natural light to work with, every photo had to be artificially lit which makes night-time shoots generally more challenging. Of course, that’s also what makes them more rewarding.
LeHien and Sydney’s photos were taken at Granville Island, one of my favorite locations to shoot at night, in large part to the amazing backdrop created by the city lights of downtown Vancouver. Because the mood of these photos lean towards being more sexy and dramatic, not every couple can pull the look off so to speak. In LeHien and Sydney’s case however, I could have photographed these two all night long and love every minute of it.
