Tannis and Francois – Victoria Engagement Session

Tags: , , ,

Tannis and Francois invited me to her childhood home in Oak Bay to photograph their engagement session. Postcard perfect vistas, stately architecture – the home is stunning. But what really took my breath away was the sentiment in this choice to photograph here. The home is now for sale, and as we photographed Tannis let me into some of the magical memories that it holds. What struck me was that the tales weren’t ones of parties or events, it was of her mom organizing her candles in the storage area, or her mom waiting in that entry way to ensure her children arrived home on time. These are the moments we often hold onto, those little details that weave our days together. Tannis lost her mom recently and this felt like a very special way to honour her and the nest in which she raised her children.

This was such a beautiful way to get to know these two.. I am smiling right now remembering what a lovely morning it was and feeling very excited and thankful to be part of their summer Tofino wedding.
