Romantic Squamish Engagement from Karizma Photography

Squamish Engagement Session

Sisters, Natalia and Tatiana, the dynamic duo that together make up Karizma Photography, captured breathtaking images of Cara and Chris’s sweet engagement session at Furry Creek, near near Squamish, BC. We couldn’t be more thrilled that they took the time to share with us!

The location is stunning and the photos couldn’t be prettier! Romantic, secluded, full of natural textures and beauty, the images capture the scenery perfectly. What’s more, they capture Cara and Chris’s sweet love story immortalized in timeless beauty. We can only imagine the peaceful sounds of the water as it laps up on the shore and the quiet sounds of nature. Stolen, intimate moments perserved.

From Karizma Photography

“We were very excited to start our 2016 wedding season by photographing Cara and Chris’ sweet engagement! They wanted to take their engagement pictures at a beach near Squamish with mountains in the background, and we took them to an amazing beach at Furry Creek. It is one of our favorite spots along the Sea-to-Sky highway as it is very beautiful and very quiet, and has spectacular mountains views. We had a fun and relaxing Furry Creek Engagement session with Cara and Chris. They are such a pleasant couple to work with, and we are really excited to photograph their wedding in July 2016!” ~Natalia & Tatiana |  Karizma Photography

From Island Moments Photography:

“If you’ve ever made the journey to Mount Washington on Vancouver Island, you will immediately see why so many people who visit can’t help but say “it’s magic!”

There is something pretty darn amazing about walking on a seashell strewn beach in the morning, and having lunch amidst towering drifts of gorgeous, powdery snow just a few hours later.

When you leave the Island Highway in the Comox Valley you are still surrounded by a vibrant emerald forest – no matter what the season!  Climbing the mountain…switchback, switchback, green, green and then POW – suddenly there is snow… and not just a little bit.  Winter tires required, you are driving through a virtual tunnel of the white stuff!

When we contacted the resort about our session they warned us – to stay on the trail.  Lisa took one tiny step off the snow-packed path, and sunk into snow as high as her waist.  Needless to say that was all the warning everyone involved in the shoot needed.

Our models, Selina and Lee – are a couple – and it’s easy to see just how in love they are!

From a parking lot attendant who kindly showed us to the best spot on the mountain (in trade for a few home-made cookies), to the whiskey jacks that deigned to land on Lee’s hand for a few sunflower seeds, to mother nature who kindly shone golden light on us all – the session was breathtaking!

We hope you love this little bit of island magic on the mountain!”  ox, L&L

Katie and Kyle Preston’s beautiful Canadian, coastal wedding took place at the Loden Hotel in Vancouver. While it wasn’t love at first sight, the two started dating shortly after they started working together. A sweet mountain proposal in Banff, while on a spring trip to the Rockies, soon followed, and the rest is history! Their wedding was beautifully captured by the talented Hayley Rae Photography!

I’m always thrilled to feature coastal weddings from BC! With lush greenery, ocean and mountain views, you can count on coastal weddings to be beautiful, but this wedding from Hayley Rae Photography is simply spectacular! A lovely couple and a penthouse suite wedding doesn’t hurt either! I love that this couple changed the direction of their wedding planning and concentrated on having a personal and intimate wedding with their closest friends and family!

From the Bride:

The proposal:

“Kyle had planned out a big hike in Banff along our road trip through the Rockies. Kyle had planned a hike up the mountain, and was going to propose at the top after having professed his love and willingness to climb any mountain for Katie.
Unfortunately the morning of, we woke up to a very cold, snowy day even though it was the end of May!
Kyle quickly switched to Plan B – a drive to a secluded beach behind a lake not too far out of Banff. The snow got the best of us again and we weren’t able to walk very far before the cold was too much for our spring clothes and we turned around.
The proposal finally happened in the car. Kyle asked Katie to remind him of his favourite penguin story – how penguin’s mate for life. The male penguin will spend days searching the beach for the perfect stone to present to his lady penguin; if she accepts, they’ll be partners for life. After the story, Kyle pulled out the ring and said “well I think I found the perfect stone for you. Will you marry me? The rest is history!”

The Wedding Day:

“The first look was so special. It was such a wonderful intimate quiet moment in a very full day. I also remember walking outside and seeing all of our family for the first time on the way to have our pictures taken. That was the moment it all hit me – I was a bride and we were getting married!!! The intimate and casual feeling of the wedding was exactly what we wanted. We didn’t have a sit down dinner, but instead had a ton of passed hors d’oeuvres. We wanted everyone to mingle and meet each other and we definitely achieved that! There were a lot of new connections made that night and we couldn’t be more thrilled.”

The Dress:

“My dress was actually the second dress I purchased. I got cold feet with the first dress and so purchased my second dress through Isabelle Bridal in North Vancouver. My dress was a Venus Bridal gown and it was exactly what i had always dreamed of.

The bridesmaid dresses were from Lisa’s Bridal in New Westminster. All the girls fell in love with the same dress. What are the odds! They were an Alfred Angelo dress with some alterations to the original.”

The Venue:

“Everything!! It was so unique! The catch words I had wanted from the beginning for our day was casual elegance. The Loden embodied both of these concepts to a T. You can’t get much more elegant than the penthouse suite of a top rated downtown hotel. To make things even better, they had fantastic suggestions for making a wedding work without the sit down dinner, and put in every effort to keep the process as fun, light and relaxed as possible. It was an elegant penthouse party!”

Other: 

The booth-less photobooth of Vancouver Photobooth was also a HUGE hit. We ended up asking them to stay later because the guests were having too much fun! It was the perfect use for the small 2nd bedroom of the penthouse.

From the Photographer:

After a romantic first look, Katie and Kyle enthusiastically met their wedding party out front of the Loden Hotel and headed off to West Vancouver for stunning portraits on the bluffs at Caulfield Park. The bridesmaid’s mismatched dresses were the perfect contrast to the BC coastline. The Loden Hotel’s ‘Halo Penthouse’ was a breathtaking spot for the intimate, rooftop ceremony and cocktail style reception. The Vancouver cityscape glistened in the background, and love filled the room from start to finish, as friends and family celebrated the happy couple ‘til the wee hours of the night.

This sunny Pemberton mountain wedding took place in the west coast town of Pemberton, BC. Just north of Whistler, Pemberton is known for its sunny skies and stunning views of Mount Currie. Heather and Nigel’s wedding was set amongst the green lawns and giant weeping willow trees at the Big Sky Golf Course. On this spectacularly sunny day, the bride and her bridesmaids arrived to the ceremony in horse-drawn carriage! Crystal Brown Photography captured the day beautifully.

From the Crystal Brown Photography:

“Heather and Nigel’s wedding was filled with summer sun, joy and beautiful scenery. The venue is naturally gorgeous with draping willow trees and mountain views.  Guests got to soak in the stunning views of the mountains during the outdoor ceremony. Stunning florals by Whistler Wedding Planners beautifully adorned the hand-built ceremony arch made by the bride’s father.

Afterwards, the celebration continued in the clubhouse and guests received a delicious bottle of maple syrup as a wedding favour. It was a beautiful Canadian mountain wedding!”
