Porteau Cove is a beautiful place for Squamish engagement photos. The valley is filled with scenic views, ocean wildlife, and the occasional mountain goat. You can also find some of the best ocean views around the Lower Mainland.
Engagement Photos on the ocean surrounded by mountains
We were looking for a location that would provide the perfect backdrop to our engagement photo shoot. We wanted to be surrounded by mountains and the ocean. The Squamish area is perfect for this – it has both, and it also has beautiful landscapes and incredible views. Check out some of the best engagement photo locations.
Props for their Squamish engagement photos
The engaged couple wanted to do something different for their engagement photos. They were restoring an old truck and wanted to include it in the photos. It made me really excited to use a prop like this in a photo shoot in a location that meant a lot to this couple. Porteau Cove was where they had their first date.
We headed out with the truck, some props, and our cameras and arrived at this little park on the ocean. The couple also brought lanterns as props for the engagement photography session, which looks amazing in twilight photos. Those lanterns will also be the centerpieces for their wedding, so it’s cool that these photos tie in to their wedding theme.
Moody engagement photos at twilight
This photoshoot aimed to create a moody, atmospheric collection of images that were not too posed and stiff. We scheduled it at the end of sunset into twilight because we really wanted to play with our lighting, some haze, and the dim ambient light to create some really moody photos with the couple with lanterns and the truck as well.
Candid engagement photos
The couple mentioned that they were really nervous in front of the camera, but when we started taking photos, they became so natural in their interactions with each other, and we were all laughing and having fun. It was a joy to be able to capture their love and happiness.
Can’t wait for their epic wedding!
We are super excited to photograph their wedding this summer at the Sea to Sky gondola (See some of the best outdoor wedding venues). It’s going to be an amazing day and we can’t wait for them to become Mr. and Mrs.
