Squamish Portraits

This engagement session was photographed in Squamish, British Columbia. Squamish is situated right between Vancouver and Whistler and is sandwiched between huge mountains and the ocean. The city has a super outdoorsy feel and claim they are the recreation capital of Canada. Chelsey and Ryan have great memories at the first location, Brohm Lake, where they had one of their first dates. Chelsey took the dare to go cliff jumping into the freezing cold water and they have been together ever since. So Brohm Lake was a perfect place for their engagement photos. These guys were such a cool couple that are down for anything! After toughing it out in the rain, we went for a little shelter. We traversed around a barb wire fence to get into the condemned barn on the ocean. I scouted this location years ago when it had a skatepark in it, while photographing for a local skateshop. It now was this amazing empty barn, just waiting for us. After the barn we grabbed one last photo in Porteau Cove on the Sea to Sky highway, just before we completely ran out of natural light. I had an amazing time hanging out with Chelsey and Ryan and look forward to photographing their wedding in October!
