Saturna Island is part of the Southern Gulf Islands located off the coast of Vancouver. With an approximate population of 350, it is a quiet (and romantic) paradise. If you’re lucky, you might even see migrating whales swim past it’s shores! And if you’re reealllly lucky, you might get offered a dream assignment: spend the weekend photographing beautiful strangers.
Ashton and Charlie WERE strangers.
I mean, I had heard a lot about them from our mutual friends, but when we boarded the ferry to Saturna, we had never actually met face to face (I actually texted Ashton a selfie so that she would recognize me). But really, I couldn’t have asked for a better weekend. These two have such an obvious love for one another, and are absolutely FILLED with positivity. And as entrepreneurs and owners of their own businesses, these two have their sh*t together too.
The images that follow are some of my proudest creations. We couldn’t have asked for a more magical sunset.
If you get the chance to travel to Saturna, do it.
Even better, do it with strangers.
