Jalen and Matt are fellow Tsawwassenites, growing up in the small town south of Vancouver. In high school, they had both been involved in theatre as well as the annual musicals. I became friends with Jalen through the school choir, and I had known Matt from elementary school french immersion. It’s been 8 years since high school graduation and I hadn’t seen either one of them since, as everyone goes their separate ways (I moved across the country… and then back!). However, as most can agree, Facebook kept me updated on most important details such as them coming back together! And they couldn’t be more perfect. Both actors, both musically inclined, and both kind hearted with incredible wit. They were a breeze to photograph, naturally poised with each other, and I’m excited to share these images!
We shot at a few places around Granville Island, ending at the stairs (image below). There are so many great colours, textures and backgrounds in Granville Island, I could have kept shooting for hours scouting out new places! It’s definitely a popular photo destination spot in Vancouver (there was even another photographer with a couple beside us by the docks). Despite it being a popular place, there are an abundance of beautiful secluded spots that you can find.
I’m so happy to be back in Beautiful British Columbia. I can’t believe how much I truly missed the scenery and greenery of this province, and how amazed I am every day when I wake up, look out my windows and see the surrounding mountains.
Thanks to my fantastic assistants
