S&M Engagement Shoot | Lighthouse Park

by Laura

Category : Engagement


I think my latest obsession this year is the ocean at sunset. Despite the fact that I love to shoot close to home for obvious reasons, I always think it’s worth the drive to go a little farther out for those grey/blue tones and dramatic skies. Also, your shoot is guaranteed to be unique because there is no way to predict what the evening’s background canvass will look like.

Sam and Matt met me out at Lighthouse Park in West Vancouver last week for their engagement photos, and they were troopers. Well, anyone that does their photos in that location has to be up for some exertion as the best spots are a hike in and back out again.

We were half hoping for some pink or purple hues, but instead a storm rolled in last minute so we went with it and created some dramatic images to match the mood.

Honestly, I had so much fun and love shooting out there despite the fact that I try really hard to pretend that I’m all cool as we hike around because I’m about as in shape as a professional couch-potato. But when you have great company like these two, you feel free to lower your pride and just admit that you’re dying. However, still totally worth it ;).

Hi! I’m Laura, a coffee-loving, outgoing introvert with a passion for motherhood and photography. This blog is an extension of who I am. I’m a mommy to three little boys, and I love to create and write. I’m also loud, tend to over share, and am a type-A personality in the extreme. I’m a little pensive and can be a lot sarcastic.  I believe that motherhood is something more than just to be survived! This is both a space where I share glimpses into my business and the photo shoots I do, and also my personal space to just write about whatever is on my heart. So grab a cup of coffee, come stay for a while and let’s get to know each other. 🙂
