Kim and Kyl Brave Rain to Enjoy Stanley Park in Their Engagement Photos // Victoria Wedding Photographers
Autumn is a pretty wonderful time of year in Vancouver. Mother Nature offers up a smorgasbord of weather possibilities. On warm days, the sun can shine through changing leaves like stained glass. On rainy days, the mist rises up from the mountains like steam from the mugs we cozy up with on days like these. During Kim and Kyl’s Stanley Park engagement session, we were treated to the entire buffet.
The forecast had been calling for rain all week, and apparently the rest of Vancouver knew about it, and was seeking shelter in cozy apartments, or foggy-windowed coffee shops. We had the entire park to ourselves, save for a couple runners, faithful to their practice, and a few late-season tourists scouring for that perfect autumn-red maple leaf to bring home as a souvenir. We met Kim and Kyl while the sun was still peeking from behind the clouds, and the four of us remained collectively optimistic that the rain would hold off. It didn’t. And, it didn’t matter a bit. Kim and Kyl did more than just grin and bear the elements, they fully embraced the rain and the chill. As we moved around the park, they spent the shoot keeping each other warm and making each other laugh and smile… even when we took the umbrellas away from them! Every time we asked if we could experiment with a shot, their response was, “Ya totally, let’s do it. We’ll give it a try!” We love when our couples trust us this way, even when we ask them to stand right in front of a puddle, while one of us jumps into it, kicks and splashes water around, and the other takes a photo.
Thanks Kim and Kyl for being such troopers, we had so much fun tossing leaves around, and strolling in the rain with you! Enjoy the photos.
