Gastown Engagement Photography // S + T

May 29, 2011

Gastown feels like home for us.

We’ve done the most sessions there of any spot in the Lower Mainland, and we will always look back on Gastown as the spot where we paid our dues and did a ton of photo sessions.

While it’s easy to think doing a lot of work in the same spot could lead to stagnation, we think the opposite occurs. We find it challenging to view the same spots differently and make each session totally unique.

For this couple’s engagement session, the challenge for us was how we could best use the fantastic morning light. We roamed around with one thought in mind: Where’s the best light.

A simple approach to one of our favourite spots in Vancouver.

Their wedding is coming up next and will be at the Shangri-La in Vancouver.
