Candace+Nick=Destiny



Candace & Nick have known each other ever since they were young - as little kids, they actually sat on either end of the same front row in their preschool picture! Clearly, it was meant to be!

Though their lives took them different directions as they grew up, they always found their way back to each other - first as friends, and then as much more. A volcano-top proposal in the Hawaiian Islands sealed the deal & we can not wait to photograph their fabulous wedding this summer!

These guys were our first engagement session here at home this season - how lucky are we to kick off spring 09 with a chic urban couple who are total naturals in front of the camera (and did I mention Candace brought three pairs of shoes including purple high heels- oh yeah!) ?! We had a blast re-exploring Vancouver after several weeks of shooting out-of-town.

Of course, spring in our hometown means cherry blossoms!



A classic portrait for mom & dad is always nice.



Though we prefer laugh-out-loud moments like this :)



We checked out some of the newer areas around the city.





But it got cold - fast - so we ducked into a parking garage to warm up & play with our radio-poppers (which are now shipping to Canada!).





Outside at twilight for a few more quick shots - loving the lines in this one :)



And then went into the Opus Hotel again to warm up again. And things got pretty hot!







Congratulations Candace + Nick!
