windsor ontario wedding~
love rocks my world.
i wake up every morning beside a wonderful husband, get hugs from my beautiful children, and i have friends that love me for who i am.
there is nothing better.
working as a wedding photographer, i spend quite a bit of time with my couples. there is nothing more wonderful than showing up to document a wedding and getting a big hug from my clients. i am blessed to have been loved into their lives at this very moment, this extraordinary time in their lives, and i’m a witness to such beauty.
i witness the love between a mom and her son, the love between brothers and sisters, the love between a dad and his baby girl.
i get to be a witness to the love between two people as they begin their journey and start their own family.
i always feel honoured to be able to observe so much love between such wonderful people.
i know i sound all mushy and cheesy, i realize that there might be people out there that don’t think i could possible be this sappy, and i want to set the record straight that i AM a romantic at heart a million times over.
believe me when i say , that if my grandmother’s wedding gown hadn’t been soooooo nasty (basically it was a turtleneck dress), i would have worn it to my own wedding because of the history and love that it represented.
Nick & Melissa’s wedding just made me smile from the inside out.
as i was editing and choosing photos for this blog post, i laughed out loud so many times, and i teared up quite a few times as well.
such fun, such raw emotion, and so much love.
thank you Melissa & Nick, for making me smile, for making me cry, and for allowing me into your lives.
big hugs to you both.
now, onto PART DOS !!!
thanks to Nick for helping me gather up acorns with hats!! LOL! i know you guys thought i was crazy, but this is my favourite ring shot EVER!!
ok, so this next photo is the one that made me cry. look at Melissa’s dad’s face!!! if that isn’t true, raw and powerful love between a daddy and his little girl, then i don’t know what is.
