I met up with Suneeta and Eric one weekday evening at the ever gorgeous Pitt Lake, in Pitt Meadows, BC. If you haven’t yet had the chance to wander the trails out there, I would highly recommend it! It is a bird watchers paradise (I love birds!) and some of the trails through the dyke are closed in the summer months due to migrating birds. Choosing to do your engagement photos at Pitt Lake is always going to result in some beautiful scenery and gorgeous colours.

We had a great time exploring the trails, and were lucky as this usual hot spot was pretty much empty on a weeknight! Other than the usual giggles and bad jokes I tell, we had some excitement when another couple down the trail were bird watching and suddenly started yelling to get our attention. From the distance, we couldn’t quite make out what they were saying until they started to yell, ‘BEAR, BEAR!’ Being the avid outdoors person I am, I of course had bear spray with me—in the car…which was on the other side of the bear. So we started stomping and singing (you know, the usual bear sighting antics) as we made our way closer to the couple to give them some support and hopefully get the curious bear to run off. As we approached we realized they were actually pretty calm, and it was then that we realized they had been yelling, ‘BEAVER, BEAVER!’ An easy mix up…I think, but still as exciting. I have only seen a beaver once before and I was surprised how big he was! Scroll down for beaver pics and some snaps from this gorgeous location.

Thank you Suneeta and Eric for braving the wilds of Pitt Lake with me and playing in the road at dusk. I love the fun, sweet and romantic photos we captured!
