We’re smitten with this gorgeous Mount Washington Winter Romance styled shoot! With copious amounts of snow, sunny skies and a couple in love, this is the epitome of a Canadian winter love story!

The talented mother and daughter photography duo, Lacey and Lisa from Island Moments Photography  graciously shared these beautiful images of their amazing mountain adventure with us. Their lovely couple Selina and Lee looked absolutely stunning!

On the eastern edge of the Vancouver Island Ranges of BC, is Mount Washington, site of the popular Mount Washington Alpine Resort. Known for it’s deep powder ski runs and scenic nordic trails, the resort played host to Island Moments Photography and a talented team of creatives who journeyed to the resort to produce this stunning winter inspirational shoot. We’re thrilled to be able to share some of the gorgeous imagery!

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
