Ambleside Engagement Session // Jenny & Joel

July 3, 2011

The plan for this engagement session was to meet up at the top of Grouse Mountain and take in the wicked views of Vancouver, catch a few ‘snowy’ pictures and soak in the awesomeness of one of Vancouver’s best ski hills.

So, we went up early to scout things out. It was a sunny day in Vancouver, so logically, we thought it would have been great at the top of the hill. But on the gondola about half way up, bam. An ocean of white fog and we could see absolutely nothing. Total whiteout.

We gave Jenny and Joel a ring after seeing this and they were still in the parking lot, about a minute away from jumping on the gondola to head up. We caught them in time though and got them to pump the brakes and meet us at Ambleside, which is a beauty of an area located in West Vancouver.

Disaster averted, and the session turned out great. They’ll be getting married at the end of August, and we’re very much looking forward to it.
