I love this image... for all its graininess and imperfection...
Isn't she a beauty?
when the sun caressed our faces, the wind blew your hair, and your smile... your smile still warms my heart...
It truly was a day to remember...
I love love. One of the best things about photographing people is that I get to be around so much of it... especially on a wedding day. Capturing this is such an honor, and one of my favorite things. I always ask my clients about their story... their love story... because that is the key to really capturing them. It helps me see and understand the connection, and then what is black and white... becomes color.
I have been blessed with such amazing clients who open their hearts and their lives... thank you so very much... xoxo.
Okay, I admit, it's a bit of a trek to get there, but once you breathe in the fresh air of Hornby Island, there is nothing quite like it. Even when it rains. Apple trees and blackberries grow everywhere, rain forests and rocky beaches, arbutus trees and grassy bluffs. It quickly becomes obvious why Shaun and Meghan chose this place for their wedding.
Shaun and Meghan married under an arbor of driftwood and ribbons. In the short ceremony, there were stories and poems, promises and vows, laughter and tears, and of course... so much love. The love amongst the friends and family made the whole day so incredible. The rain couldn't dampen the joy and laughter, the humorous and touching speeches or the dancing that went well into the night. It was truly a beautiful day...
Thank you Shaun and Meghan... it was such an honor to share in your day!
I have known Sheree for as long as I can remember. Being older than myself, we didn't share the same classes in high school, but at one point, we did share an intense love for New Kids on the Block (aka NKOTB) ;)
Sheree has such an exuberant energy, it's hard not to smile when she is around. Apparently Blake feels the same way, because I only see him grinning ear to ear when she is by his side. There is a tenderness between them... and so much laughter.
Both the day before and after were a mixed bag, but the sun shone in a near cloudless sky for them. It was an idylic wedding on the lake with so many beautiful details. It was perfect.
It was an honor to share in your special day. I had so much fun... I wish you endless love and laughter! xoxo
