Quinn + Lydia's Sunrise Engagement Shoot | Langley, BC

gold·en hour
noun 
1. In photography, a period shortly after sunrise or before sunset during which daylight is redder and softer than when the Sun is higher in the sky:
2. The setting for Quinn and Lydia's incredible engagement shoot

Honestly - we can just go ahead and take the definition of 'golden hour' out of Wikipedia and replace it with these photos. They are the PERFECT example of why photographers are always so excited about shooting at this time of day! Now, these photos happen to have been taken just after sunrise, and I don't know too many photographers who would be able to do such a amazing work at the crack of dawn without some serious caffeine first.. but Kelsey of The MacLeans nailed it. These two seem to be having a ton of fun, despite the early morning - if you can do that before the sun is even up, you just know it's gotta be real love!

Congratulations to these two beauties on their engagement!

Alicia + Jem's Rocker-Chic Styled Wedding | Galiano Island, British Colombia

I LOVE this styled shoot. It's so unique and looks like so much fun.. the team of vendors who put this together did an incredible job. They wanted to create a beautiful fall wedding shoot to showcase a same-sex fall wedding and to remind people that you don't have to have a summer wedding for it to be beautiful! Their gorgeous subjects, Alicia and Jem, are actually a couple in real life (and it shows!) and they're getting married this fall!! If this shoot is any indication, that's going to be one gorgeous wedding!
