Chantell & James’ Wedding at Hatley Castle & Bear Mountain in Victoria BC
Sydney and I go way back, back to flipping burgers and being dummies at Mcdonalds at our first job back when we were 15, so when she contacted me saying she was getting married and wanted me to be there to shoot the photos for her and Steve, I was thrilled. We talked about some location possibilities and as soon as she mentioned that her dad owned some property on Piers Island just off of Swartz Bay on the Peninsula I was on board. We hopped on a little charter boat and did the short cruise to Piers Island before zipping around the mini road that encircles the island on a golf cart, exploring the woods, climbing up trees, drinking beers on the beach and enjoying the sunset as we pulled back to the Canoe Cove Marina. Getting to do engagement photos on Piers Island was a real treat, it was beautiful, it was quiet, and it was somewhere new, and Sydney and Steve and their awesome sense of humour shine through in the photos, here are a few favourites.
