Having met Sherman at the Vancouver Wedding Fair this January, I quickly learned that he had two great passions that made him glow like a big bright light bulb – photography and his sweetheart Phikyin (Yin). We talked shop for a while, and I was honored to learn that although I was already booked for their special day, Sherman wanted me to document their love with one of my signature engagement sessions. Oh how I wish I could split myself in two and shoot their wedding, they are such a fantastic warm couple!
Sherman & Yin met at a party nearly five years ago and shortly after embarked on a journey of one of those impossible-to-sustain-long-distance-calling-Skyping-emailing-air-miling-relationships… Which eventually led to one of those perfect Paris vacations, where anxious Sherman proposed to Yin at the gardens in front of the Louvre! I personally thought it would have been a grand idea for all of us to fly back to Paris for the engagement session – for extra sentimentality and authenticity 🙂 But instead we settled on Vancouver’s gorgeous VanDusen Botanical Garden. Doesn’t this look like a scene out of Alice in Wonderland?!If you can’t make your favourite girl laugh … twirl her! It never fails! This is one of my favourites of these two…After VanDusen Botanical Gardens, we headed over to my favourite Vancouver neighborhood (my 15th floor little precious apartment overlooks this view). Sherman & Yin definitely share this love for Vancouver and it shows!Rob & I were coming back from an amazing weekend in Tofino this day, tired and happy. Here’s a glimpse of him shooting over my shoulder!view portfolio | let’s connect on facebook & twitter | email katya
