As a wedding photographer, I firmly believe that every moment of an elopement should be documented, not just the ceremony and couple's session. Recently, I had the pleasure of photographing Jocelyn and Alex's elopement on Bowen Island, a beautiful island located just a short ferry ride from Vancouver. They had come across my website after stumbling upon a previous intimate elopement I photographed the year prior also on Bowen.

The day began with a delicious lunch at The Shed restaurant in West Vancouver, where we enjoyed stunning views of the city and Cypress Mountain from a cozy bench. We then made our way to a hidden lookout in Horseshoe Bay, which provided breathtaking views of the Howe Sound.

After soaking in the views, we took a ferry to Bowen Island and arrived at the couple's gorgeous Airbnb. I took advantage of the beautiful natural light streaming through the windows to capture some intimate and candid photos of the couple before they got ready in their wedding attire.

We headed to a massive old growth tree for the intimate ceremony, which was attended by a few close family members and friends.

As the sun began to set, we made our way to my favorite spot on Bowen Island: Roger Curtis Lighthouse Beach. The golden hour light was perfect for capturing some stunning images of the couple against the picturesque backdrop.

To wrap up the day, we headed back to the Airbnb, where Jocelyn and Alex cut their cake and everyone enjoyed some traditional Chinese food. It was a perfect end to an unforgettable day.
