Raina & Kelvin got married at beautiful Hotel Georgia in Vancouver earlier this year during winter. We have been waiting since then for their post-wedding session!
During our ferry ride to Vancouver Island, Annie did Raina’s makeup on the ferry, and of course it attracted a lot of attention! We then headed to a local Starbucks, to finish Raina’s hairstyling. It was definitely a very unique experience doing styling at such public locations with so much audience!
Our first stop was at a rustic alley in Downtown Victoria. We loved the architecture and felt like we were taking a walk in a beautiful European town. We then headed towards our main attraction, Hatley Castle. Everything about Hatley Castle is breath taking. The property of Hatley Castle is enormous, we spent most of our time at the Italian Garden and the Castle itself. We were very lucky that we got to hang out with a peacock family. At one point we even saw a bunny playing with the baby peacock!
As soon as we got to Esquimalt Lagoon, we lost the sun as it got clouded over. Although we did not get to shoot in the beautiful golden hour, we still got a glimpse of the sunset at the end of the session!
