25 May Grouse Mountain engagement shoot
A Grouse Mountain engagement shoot in the snow? Yes please! I know it’s May, but really, is it ever to late to blog gorgeous snowy photos. 😉 While you’re reading this, I’m actually literally in the snow again, on a little road trip to the interior.
On the day of this shoot, it looked like a Winter Wonderland up Grouse Mountain, which was perfect! This duo got engaged while it was snowing and loved to include the snow. At Grouse you can take up the gondola instead of having to do a gruesome hike to get this kind of epic vistas. We even started the shoot with drinks at the bar. 😉
The week leading up to this day the weather forecast predicted rain except for one Thursday evening. So we decided to take the gamble and rode the Skyride up that day. And boy did we ever luck out! Earlier this year we visited Grouse Mountain for a styled shoot and the weather was completely different (rain, snow and fog). But this time the sky treated us to gorgeous colours and a beautiful golden foggy sunset.
A funny detail about this couple was how during our first conversation on Skype they hesitantly asked about our word “adventurous”. For those of you that didn’t know on our website we proudly proclaim how we celebrate spontaneous and adventurous brides and grooms. Additionally, we reinforce those values with our favorite photos. And upon seeing all of that they were wondering if they were adventurous enough for us :)!
Well, looking back I can only think that if these two aren’t adventurous, I don’t know who is! They were game for absolutely EVERYTHING we could think of. Hell, they ran through knee-deep layers of snow while wearing regular shoes, just to catch the sunset. The resulting wet socks gave all of us a good laugh 😉
Thanks so much for the fun evening guys and I can’t wait to photograph your wedding! 🙂
PS: If you’re interested in a Grouse Mountain engagement shoot: we’d love to go back in Summer! 😉
