Four years were spent walking around Granville Island during the time I was completing my bachelors degree. To say that I am familiar with the area is a bit of an understatement which was why I was happy to hear that Vanessa and Devid wanted to get their engagement photos done there. I love working with new locations, however a very familiar location has its benefits as well. I know where all the best spots on Granville Island were, and I also know how to get to them very quickly; and because of this we were able to complete the shoot in a quick and efficient manner.
We wanted the shoot to have a look of summer transitioning into fall, and I think we hit the mark with the timing. With rain from the previous week, and rain forecasted for the next week, the shoot happened at the perfect time; not to mention it was still warm out. The icing on the cake was the unannounced play the took place in the middle of False Creek which involved a pirate ship and water canons. Doesn’t get any better than that.
