When Sean and I made our travel plans to visit Whistler I knew I wanted to get amazing photographs of us on our new adventure. It had been a while since Sean and I were in front of the camera together, so I thought to myself “why not schedule a portrait session with a local photographer in the Vancouver area?” My hashtag for 2016 is ‘Why not’ so I reached out to Matt and Carissa Kennedy, who are a husband and wife team! Luckily they were available and we met them on our first full day in Whistler. They were incredibly kind and drove to Whistler to meet us and walk around taking pictures. Whistler is our NEW favorite destination, and I figured it was now time to share our photos from our portrait session.
I always want to remember these experiences with my husband, and to have someone document it in pictures is even more special. I would encourage more couples to do the same! Even if it’s just five minutes on your vacation I promise it’s worth it. I went through our gallery about a hundred times before I could pick one photo to post! I can’t express how fun it is to walk around a new destination with your best friend, hand in hand. We laughed, joke, danced, cuddled and nuzzled together. It’s a great and really special way to reconnect with each other.
What I remember the most about this portrait session was the connection Sean and I have, and all the gorgeous views of this great ski town. I’ve already mentioned to my husband that we should plan on going there again! Whistler has a special place in our hearts now.
We walked around with Matt and Carissa and had lunch together afterwards. I can’t thank you both enough for the time we spent together and the photos we will cherish. We are already talking about going back to Whistler again, we LOVED it! We hope to see Whistler and Matt and Carissa soon!
