Sherry & Matt. Engagement.

November 11, 2009

They came by my booth at the Fall Vancouver Bridal Show – and before they even left, I was Sherry & Matt’s wedding photographer. I couldn’t be more honored – they are such a beautiful couple. So sharp, funny, and real. Their story has always been knowing what they want and finding a way to get it – as Matt happily recalls, Sherry was the hottest girl in the Engineering Faculty… and he knew he wouldn’t be letting her go! 

We decided not to wait till spring for our engagement shoot, relying on the mercy of this gloomy Vancouver Sunday – and it was a gorgeous one. I finally got my fix of shooting by the ocean (for now), and even got a little more than I bargained for, having relied on my rain boots to be ocean boots. To spice up the experience, we even had an ‘encounter’ with a lady who stripped down to her bathing suit for what seemed to be her regular November (!) afternoon swim. Somehow she found our presence on the beach intrusive… Perhaps she was getting her groove on for the Olympics 🙂 Nothing could spoil our mood, set to the soothing ocean murmur and Buddha Bar beats from by little boom box. I couldn’t wait to share some of my favorites with you!

To Matt & Sherry – you guys rock and I can’t wait to document your wedding next May! Love, K.
