Catherine & Alex’s Engagement Photos

We met up with Catherine & Alex in Gastown for their engagement photos before heading to Stanley Park. Alex was so entertaining and kept us all laughing. Catherine & Alex were great sports when we got to Second Beach and Roger had them walk in the ocean’s edge and then lie down in the sand. We’re all still getting sand out of our pockets, shoes and hair. But it was so worth it, right Catherine & Alex???

Thanks so much you two for a great engagement photo session. We’ll see you real soon at your wedding! We can’t wait!

    Great Photos! Don't sell them for less than they are worth. The Paparazzi will be all over this and they don't usually get such incredible quality of pictures, composition of shot and certainly not such excellent Subject material. Every Vancouver Tourism Magazine will want you on the Front Cover ... This is SERIOUSLY Good Stuff in every way!
