Adventurous Love on London Lake: A Styled Elopement with Jordan and Ashley

Hello, everyone! I’m excited to share an adventurous photo session with you, featuring the Vancouver Island professional modeling couple, Jordan and Ashley from 2 Hearts on Fire. This stunning duo brought their vision to life with a styled shoot on the chilly London Lake in Nanaimo, BC earlier this year.

The event was a crafted concept that Jordan and Ashley organized, gathering other photographers to capture the magic of their styled elopement on the water.

The mood was adventurous and free-spirited, perfectly complementing the boho wedding dress and boots Ashley wore.

One of the memorable moments of the session was the playful challenge we faced with the boat. Despite all of our best efforts, it kept drifting back to the dock while Jordan and Ashley were in it! It became a running joke throughout the shoot, filling the afternoon with laughter and lighthearted fun. While you can't see this in the photos, it was a fun challenge to overcome throughout the shoot.

Our goal was to capture the essence of an adventurous elopement, and I believe we did just that. This was my first time being part of a group content day and I had a wonderful time. The other photographers present were wonderful to work alongside and meet. As a photographer, we don't often see others and it can be pretty competitive sometimes. So it was really nice to have a chance to meet others looking for others who value community over competition! There was never any sense of "I'm more important than you" or anything of the sort. We all wanted to make sure we got the best shots and had fun doing so!

The session didn't end with the bridal shoot; Ashley and Jordan transitioned into a more casual look for a styled engagement session during sunset. We truly lucked out with the weather—the clouds parted just in time to bathe the scene in a stunning glow. Despite the chilly wind, Ashley was a trooper! She embraced the cold and made the most of this beautiful setting.

Jordan and Ashley were the masterminds behind this incredible session. They launched the boat, created the floral pieces, styled themselves, and brought their concept to life. To be honest it was rather nice not to have to lift a finger!

Reflecting on the day, I had a fantastic time collaborating with other wedding photographers and capturing such a fun concept. I have always wanted to do a boat session and I am so glad that this was the first time I was able to!

Through these photos, I hope to inspire you with the idea of a couple's shoot on a boat. It’s a creative and adventurous way to capture love while also turning your shoot into an adventurous date!

I hope you enjoyed seeing some of my work from this styled shoot! :)
