Britannia Shipyards Engagement | Amber & Chris

Britannia Shipyards Engagement Photography Vancouver

As the sun set on another warm summer’s night, this Britannia shipyards engagement was given a vintage, romantic feel…

 

 

Amber and Chris’ love story is one for the ages. A story of perseverance and determination. A story of patience. But also a story which proves that sometimes what you are looking for has been in front of you all along.

Nine years ago, they met at a friend’s wedding. To this day, Amber can’t recall meeting Chris at all. But he remembers. There’s a photograph of her wearing his suit jacket in the after hours of the celebration. It’s obvious he had his eye on her from the start, but was clearly playing the long game.

Fast forward five years later, and Chris started showing up more around their group of mutual friends. Over the next couple years, he finally pursued her again. But as their circle of friends was so tightly knit, she didn’t want to upset the group’s balance and held firm, refusing his advances.
After a few more years, they grew closer. Their casual interactions evolved into a strong friendship, which organically lead them to travel to Mexico to attend a close friend’s wedding. Influenced by the romantic setting (and a little liquid courage), they finally made the leap and returned to Vancouver a couple. It was only after a month of secretly dating, however, that they finally announced they were officially together.
And as they say, the rest is history. After a year and a half Chris proposed. A week after that, they were both sitting in our downtown Vancouver photography studio, talking wedding photography options and details of their upcoming wedding at Brix & Mortar.
For their engagement session, they wanted something out of the city, and a location that they wouldn’t otherwise be able to access on their wedding day. We hadn’t yet shot a Britannia Shipyards engagement, but knew the location would be stunning. The historic site proved to be the ultimate photography location. The buildings were clean and had great lines, the location gave us access to the water, and as the sun started to set, it cast a warm light over the whole scene.
