Sam & Ed | Wedding

Sneak peeks into Sam & Ed's wedding along the shores of Walker Bay <3
These two are so sweet I can barely handle it! There is a certain gentleness shared between one another, nestled between a foundation of sincere stoicism.
Ed, a paramedic AND firefighter, there through thick and thin for his gentle and caring wife, Sam...

Chris & Jesse | Wedding

These two, oh these two...
For over a decade already, these two have been building their relationship. High school sweethearts forming their lives together over the years through the tears, laughs, ups and downs. Now FINALLY (yes, we can say finally for this couple), they take the next step through marriage! 
I've had the privilege of being friends with Chris and his family since I was young, what a privilege it was to be a part of such a huge day and of course, getting to know Jesse! 
Such an authentic pair, it fills my heart to know that couples like this exist, and I'm not just saying that to be cheesy, *cub scouts honor*...

A mix of photos taken on the Canon Mark iii & Pentax 645 in black and white. Waiting for the scanned film to come back from the lab was a new experience, such a blast to try a new medium  <3

Don't let him break you the familiar voice whispered.
But I unfolded like a million tiny petals against a soft breeze at the mere thought of him.
Praying all the while, that the weight of this exposure wouldn't end up crushing me.

Wrapping up this winter with what seems like the last of my snowy shoots! But, as Elsa brought back Spring in Disney's Frozen, so does this lovely Elsa from "The Enchanted Sisters". These two adorable ladies do all kinds of various events, from birthday parties, major city events, book readings and just recently signed a contract with a local theater company! The main goal of these two is "to make kids dream come true". You can't get any better then that! :D
