Peak of Christmas Engagement Photos after dark might seem moronic (or at least oxymoronic!) but I think you’ll understand why we chose to meet at the top of Grouse Mountain for engagement photos after the sun had set. With all the sparkle on the light walk and all the romance of ice skating after dark, engagement photos after sunset was the best possible decision for these lovely two.
I visited Peak of Christmas four times this year (hooray for a Local’s Pass!) and loved it every time. With all the bokeh my heart could desire and every ounce of Christmas spirit imaginable, it’s fast becoming a Christmas tradition for me!
Aren’t they adorable?!
I photographed her sister’s wedding a few years ago, so am undeniably stoked to have been chosen as Nicole’s photographer this year!
Cuddling under the stars on a mountaintop. Um-hm. Life is good.
Grouse Mountain has a firepit next to the ice skating rink and the smoke create a mysterious fog. Isn’t it lovely?
I think this shot (above) is my favorite from our evening together. The way Nicole looks at Andrew, the magic of twinkle light bokeh, and the sparkle of love.
(A little geek speak: I was shooting on my D810 and my D800 on prime lenses wide open (f/1.4 – 2.0), a 1/125 shuter speed and generally 2000 ISO. Basically, I tested the low-light capabilities of my cameras and loved finding the limits!)
I love how much fun Nicole & Andrew had ice skating during their Peak of Christmas engagement photos on Grouse Mountain — they laughed, cuddled, snuggled, and giggled. Basically the most adorable thing ever.
The last time I photographed ice skating for Grouse Mountain engagement photos, I was trying to be sneaky while Rob prepared to propose to Emiley! Are you interested in me photographing your Grouse Mountain proposal or engagement photos? I’d love to hear from you!
