Engagement shoot: Jennifer and Daniel

Jennifer and Daniel's beach engagement shoot, photographed by Lily and Lane Photography, celebrates their personality as a couple. And what a sweet couple they are!
The photographer says: Jennifer and Daniel are getting married this December at Sea Cider Farm and Ciderhouse, and came over from Vancouver, B.C., to have their engagement session on the island as well. Since Jennifer has family in Victoria, we scheduled their engagement session to coincide with a preplanned trip to the island at the beginning of December. As you know, winter weather in the Pacific Northwest isn’t always conducive to outdoor photos, and it ended up being so windy and rainy on our original session date that had to postpone. Luckily, Jennifer and Daniel were coming back to the island for Christmas so we rescheduled for later in the month and the weather decided to cooperate. In fact, despite the grey skies, it only started pouring rain after our session ended.

Initially, Jennifer and Daniel wanted to have their engagement photos taken in one of Victoria’s inland parks; however, the stormy weather at the beginning of December convinced them that the beach might be a more
dynamic location. I put forward two suggestions – one urban location and Island View Beach, a coastal regional park with a more naturalized look. Jennifer and Daniel decided Island View Beach would be the perfect spot,
and not only did we have the park’s natural beauty as our backdrop, we also got to use pre-existing driftwood structures that other visitors had made and left standing on the beach.

When we started the session, I told Jennifer and Daniel that my goal wasn'’t just to make sure they had engagement photos that they love, but ones that reflect them and who they are as a couple. I want them to be
able to look at their photos and remember their engagement session as fun and comfortable, and I think we achieved that. Jennifer and Daniel wear their love for each other openly; you can see and feel it when you’re
around them, and it shines through in their photos.
