Jen & Steve’s Picnic in Stanley Park/Engagement Photo Session

engagement photo shoot in Stanley Park with a MinionThe other day we met up with Jen & Steve for their engagement photo session on Third Beach in Stanley Park. Jen & Steve love food as much as we do, so the shoot was really just a good excuse to have a picnic and eat their favourite food, Church’s Chicken and Cupcakes by Heather & Lori. For good measure and some hilarious randomness, Jen & Steve also brought along a giant minion that Steve won at the PNE last year. The minion had a great time photo-bombing the session.

Jen & Steve, thank you for having so much fun in front of our cameras. We really can’t wait for your wedding day.

    Awesome pictures! I'm assuming that "serious photos" were impossible with these two? This is by far the best photographic display that I've seen. And I'm an American (I have no idea what that means). You're photographers are like your Olympic hockey teams...the best! (Jen/Steve, is this good or should I continue?) More? Ok. The lighting on chicken made my mouth water.
    Seriously, very nice photos.

      Thank you so much for your kind words, Chung! There definitely was a lot of giggling between Jen & Steve which made us giggle too.

    Love the forest scenes, sepia-tones as well as full-colour - full of affection and joy. The eyes in some of the photos are funny!
