Anthie & Sam | At Home Engagement Session | Vancouver, BC

Anthie & Sam’s engagement session is one of my favourite things I’ve done in 2020. They’re super close friends of mine and having the opportunity of photographing them was a wonderful experience. I approached this session as a fun and laid-back day, that took us from their apartment to the beach and out for dinner.


I wanted to make it feel like I was capturing a snapshot of their day today lives on the weekend together, so we decided that hanging out on the couch with Sam playing the guitar for Anthie, and listening to records together was a natural fit.



When you include elements such as a place that you’re really comfortable in or activities that you enjoy doing together, you’ll be able to ease into your photo session a little bit easier if you’re someone who is camera shy.

I know incorporating their home of Vancouver was important to them, so we decided to head to the beach to take some photos outside on the rocks as it’s a place that they visit fairly often together.


For the photos taken at night I wanted to try something different and all these images you see here were done on film. Is it bitches were taken on the block that Anthie and Sam reside, and knowing they were up for a bit of fun, I thought this was the perfect way to try something new.
