“Kiss me with rain on your eyelashes. . . ” (Edwin Morgan, A Book of Lives)

This is Part 2 of Courney + Dan’s engagement session.  During our first attempt we got rained out in the first few minutes.  By rained out, I mean torrential rain!  We  got wet still managed to get some pretty cool photos (scroll to the bottom to see them) but we decided to finish the session another day.  The weather was perfect for our second attempt!

Part 1
It was barely five or at most ten minutes into C + D’s engagement session that the rain started.  And it didn’t let up, instead it rained harder and harder.  We ran and found shelter under the old stairs of the closest building and took these photos.  There is something so romantic about rain and getting a little wet (or a lot!) was worth it.

Last week Mark stayed home and held down the fort so that I could travel to Hornby Island for a women’s photography retreat.  What a treat to meet and be inspired by these great women and to eat the amazing healthy meals we all took turns making!  I slept like a baby and woke up each morning earlier than I ever do at home (I don’t usually do mornings!) waking up to bright sunshine on my face and an incredible view of the ocean. Here a few photos of some of the talented women I met.  We had the chance to play a little with our cameras and take some portraits in this amazing setting amongst the wildflowers and ocean.  First is Berkley, then Jennifer and her little Tess, Michelle (with a photobomb by Nicki!) and Emily.  One of the highlights during our stay was a trip to the pottery studio belonging to Heinz Laffin.  Alanna and I were there a little before the rest of the group arrived and loved watching him work and hearing 84 year old Heinz tell us stories about how he came to be on Hornby some 40 years ago, about his family, his craft, and even the sad story about his chickens who were all killed by a mink shortly before our visit to his studio.  After that is Kelsey, Alanna, then Jesse’s photos on the rocks at the beach at almost 32 weeks and expecting her first baby. Emily’s styled portrait on the beach was a lot of fun – she and Jesse put together a crown from seaweed and some treasures found along the beach. Someone found a starfish which was also added to her head piece.  Then Nicky at dusk on the beach, and Laureen. The last image is of our kind host Jennifer who has the gift to make every person she meets feel valued and welcome…and she sure can jump!

P.S.  Everything went perfectly well at home.  Mark even took care of both Summer and Willow overnight while their mommy ran her first full marathon!

Louisa and Mike’s winter wedding was our first wedding for 2015.  The Fraser River Lodge was completely transformed by Shyla from Valley Weddings and her team with a black and white theme, even the guests wore black and white to compliment the elegant decor.  A harpist played as Louisa walked down the aisle and live music played by Andrew Christopher Music during the couple’s first dance added another touch of romance and elegance. What a beautiful wedding to begin our season!
