Kerri and Nik's Wintery Engagement Session at Green Lake in Whistler // Victoria Wedding Photographers
It was a bright and sunny day. Snow seemed to glow from the tops of Whistler’s Backcomb range, birds sang and darted about through crisp air, cedars towered at the edges of the ice-coated lake, couples smiled at each other as they walked hand in hand, and the magical sounds of Notorious B.I.G echoed out into the world from Nik’s Spotify playlist. The tone was set for his and Kerri’s engagement session.
With a mid-summer wedding on the calendar, Kerri and Nik were keen to do their engagement photos during winter. What better place than in Whistler to capture a snowy themed story. We met on the edge of a lake in Whistler, surrounded by mountainous views, and walkable trails. When Nik and Kerri first stepped out of their car, they pulled with them a bag full of HBC everything. Hats, mitts, they mentioned they also had scarves, but most wonderful of all was a very delicately folded, vintage Hudson Bay wool blanket. Nik told us that this blanket meant so much to them; it is one of the very first purchases his grandmother made when she immigrated to Canada.
We knew right away that our session with Kerri was going to be a delightful dichotomy of sentimentality and hilarity. We were not disappointed. We explored the edges of the lake together, taking equal break time to cuddle under their blanket, tumble around in the snow, enjoy a snowball battle, and of course, bust into song and dance when the best songs showed up on their aptly named, Engagement Session Playlist.
Thanks Kerri and Nik for the laughs, and the stories. We can’t wait for the wedding!
