DOCUMENTARY PHOTO SESSION, SOUTHERN BC
We spent our first day together doing a more typical engagement session, but I wanted to do something different for them. I wanted to document a more typical day in their lives, so we planned out the day much like any other day would look for them. For Jen and Mike, that meant grabbing their dog and going for a hike, getting some food, and hanging out at their rural property. I’m not going to lie, it was a pretty amazing day.
Our hiking took us to Christina Lake, which is a beautiful area full of gorgeous scenery. We decided to stop by a local restaurant, a Doukhobors place that served the most amazing food. And of course, went back to their place to practice some archery.
I wanted these photos to be black and white to add a timeless quality to the photos. It’s a much different kind of session when there is not a single moment of posing going on, but I like these sessions. I like them a lot. I hope you do too.
