Wordless Wednesday — Granville Island Engagement Shoot

by Janice


Engagement Shoot at Granville Island, BC

Normally for our Wordless Wednesday photos here at 5 Minutes for Mom, I use photos I have taken of Susan or my kids, or blogging related photos. But I loved this shot so much from an engagement shoot at Granville Island I did last weekend, I decided to share it here too. This couple is so in love and so much fun — this photo just makes me happy. Hope it brings a smile to your face too. (Yes, in addition to my job here at 5 Minutes for Mom, I also am a family photographer shooting in my hometown of Vancouver, BC.)

Did you have an engagement photo session with your wedding photographer?

I did for my wedding (years and years ago!) and it is so much fun! I highly recommend always doing an engagement shoot with your wedding photographer before your wedding.

Not only does it give you a chance to get to know your photographer and get more comfortable in front of the camera, but then you have fabulous images to use as you plan your wedding — for guest books, slide shows, photographs at your reception, and more. Guests and family LOVE to see the happy couple in love!


What is Your Weekly Photo?

Mom Bloggers (and Dad Bloggers too!) post a photo on your site, link up and find others… Wordless Wednesday is tons of fun. (And I know it says “wordless” but I usually just can’t bear to not write anything! If I had created it, I probably would have named it something different! LOL So feel to link up your word-full or word-less Wednesday photos!)

Leave the URL to your photo (clearly mine are never truly “wordless”) and then visit others!

Thanks to Uisce for creating Wordless Wednesday.

Your photo makes me want to go to Lake Michigan and pose in front of the sailboats. Absolutely stunning!

We did engagement pictures with our wedding photographer at the same place we wanted our wedding photos done… so when we went to do wedding photos, we already knew where we were going to shoot what pictures and we got tons of wedding pictures done in only an hour and a half. :) It was great to have that previous relationship with the photographer and with the place we wanted our pictures. :)

What a lovely capture! They looks so happy. You really caught that. We did have a session and I wish it would have been more natural and less staged with poses.

Since we were poor college students at the time, we had our friends take photos and we paid for the film and developing. It’s amazing how many wonderful shots we got. But no engagement photos – 20 years ago that wasn’t something people really did except for the formal portrait to put into the newspaper announcement.

Wow, they look so happy in there!!! Janice, this photo really make me happy as you said earlier!!!

Gorgeous photographs, I wish best of luck to this great couple.

I love this and the couple are looking so good together. I think every couple have to do their engagement shoot because after all the memory will stay with them for lifetime. There are so many photographers in the market who have lots of experienced in wedding photography at reasonable prices. Thanks for sharing.
