Diana and Jonathan’s wedding is coming up this weekend and we couldn’t be more excited! Jon wanted to have us join them for a trip up to Whistler on the Rocky Mountaineer
train. We’ve photographed a number of weddings in Whistler over the years- but not an engagement session up to Whistler on a train- loved it!
We ran around Whistler with overcast skies (quite lovely, those low-lying clouds in the forest), and ended up at the Barefoot Bistro for lobster fest, champagne sabre experience and vodka tasting. Spent the night at the Fairmont Chateau Whistler and enjoyed the trip back to Vancouver by train.
One of the most spectacular parts of the trip, was our adventure to Hemloft, a secret modern tree house on crown land in Whistler (recently featured in Dwell). Our amazing assistant and fellow photographer (based in Whistler!), Gabi was our guide- we would not have come to this magical spot without her help: thank you, Gabi!! Please don’t ask me how to get there again as I have absolutely no idea!
Jon and Di have known each other for a decade, and they still have this absolutely beautiful, giddy love fever for each other: they can’t wait to get married and start their new life together. I regularly catch Jonathan gushing with puppy dog eyes while Diana is talking- he doesn’t even know he’s doing it but it’s soooo delightful!
Here are some highlights from the shoot, including images of their 12X12 JONETSU Bespoke Album and a few behind the scenes shots.
These two have style for days are are truly, genuinely beautiful people:
So retro romantic, that train!!
The forest was calling
Barefoot Bistro cellar times, and crazy cold Vodka tasting room!
Behind the scenes: Chadwick, Gabi and I, hiking, squatting and CRAZY nest hair results on me!! Diana’s hair was brilliantly smooth all shoot, and the mist left me with beautiful squirrel bangs lol. That’s why I belong BEHIND the camera!
Thanks for the incredible times you guys… what a shoot to remember! Gabi, you’re such a great help to us and we love your energy: thanks again! xo c
