Roller Derby

This punk rock engagement and maternity session has a history. I’m lucky to be able to call this punk rock couple my friends. Krystal and I met a few years back via a mutual all-consuming life choice: roller derby. (Can you tell from her tattoos?!) We were super excited to get drafted to the same team, against all odds. We spent a few seasons playing for Terminal City Rollergirls’ Riot Girls.

We’ve both moved on from roller derby these days. Krystal life has changed quite a bit. She has a new fiancé and a baby on the way. It’s been amazing to watch her relationship with Johnny flourish. I’m so excited for these expecting parents.

The Shoot

First, we started the photo shoot at a spot in East Vancouver, which is rich with graffiti. This spot suited their rock and roll style. Johnny brought his dog, Graveyard. She’s the sweetest thing, and you can tell she just adores him. Next, we headed out to the dog beach at Spanish Banks Beach, to sneak in some fun time for Graveyard. This spot also allowed us to capture the amazing mountains and cityscapes of Vancouver in the background.

The Future

I can’t wait to spend some more time behind the lens with this off-beat bride and groom-to-be, and I bet next time there will be motorcycles involved…but we’ll have to wait until 2018!
