Justin and Larisse are getting married in April at UBC Boathouse.

Their wedding will be a celebration of their identities, a beautiful embracing of their queerness in front of their family and friends. I feel so special and grateful to be a part of their big day!

Iona Beach, located in Richmond, British Columbia, is a hidden gem that offers breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean, lush marshlands, and vibrant wildlife. It’s a place where tranquility meets natural beauty, making it the perfect setting for Larisse and Justin’s engagement session. The vast expanse of sandy shores, rolling dunes, and the serene backdrop of the ocean provided the couple with a picturesque canvas to express their love.

What sets Larisse and Justin’s love story apart is their deep respect and admiration for each other’s individuality. They both understand the importance of being true to oneself and have encouraged each other to pursue their passions and dreams. Larisse’s creative spirit and Justin’s adventurous soul have blended seamlessly, creating a dynamic partnership built on love, support, and understanding. As the sun dipped below the horizon, casting a warm golden glow across the beach, the couple shared intimate moments that captured the essence of their love. They danced along the shoreline, their laughter carried away by the gentle sea breeze, and gazed into each other’s eyes with a depth of emotion that words could hardly describe.
