Who knew that Jane Austen would still be writing love stories almost two hundred years later! It was this author of stories of loves lost and found that first brought Courtney and James together. You see Courtney loves Jane Austen and James is a direct relative of Ms. Austen and this shared interest is one of the reason’s they first met and now James loves Courtney and in just under a week from today they will be married. When we first started planning this little session with these two we asked them about what they love to do and pretty much everything was outside hiking, camping, mountain climbing and more. James is currently in a bid to climb the 7 highest peaks on Vancouver Island. Together they summited Mt. Arrowsmith in less than ideal weather and that confirmed James had met the perfect girl for him. So it only made sense that for this session we celebrate their upcoming marriage by doing what many westcoasters love to do outside on summer evenings – build a fire and watch the sun set on the ocean. We asked them to bring whatever they would like to include in the shoot and what resulted was a picnic with Jane, some mountaineering tips, some pale pink roses from Courtney’s favourite flower shop Rook & Rose, a wee picnic, and some fireside love. We can’t wait to see you two say yes to forever!
