Melissa & Nigel’s Fort Langley engagement photos were incredibly full of laughter and fun with a perfect side of exploration and finding-the-light adventure. I always love Fort Langley engagement photos but it was especially fun to be wandering the streets and alleyways with these two and their incredibly classy outfits and amazingly joy-filled love.
Sometimes I make my clientfriends practice their first dance in random places and it always creates incredibly sweet moments like this one.
When I first met with Melissa & Nigel back in 2019 (it feels like a decade ago, yes?), we laughed and dreamed and plotted and planned toward their Fort Langley Community Hall wedding festivities. So even though they rearranged their plans and had a microwedding instead of the big party, we made sure to get some engagement photos in front of the original venue!
These two have had their relationship forged in the fire of rocky waters (is that mixing my metaphors? or does it properly describe the rollercoaster of LIFE they’ve already navigated?!) and it’s beautiful to see how gracefully they’ve handled the heartaches of the past two years and how well they love each other because of it.
Melissa and Nigel take such joy at being with each other and it shows.
AND ISN’T SHE BEAUTIFUL?! Gracious, Melissa! You’re stunning!
Fort Langley engagement photos are always my favourite, but this striking wall and its flattering light is so amazing. I especially love how Melissa’s dress from Bombay Couture is the perfect blue to contrast with the rust-coloured pain.
