“The shackles are undone, the bullets quit the gun
The heat that’s in the sun will keep us when there’s none.
The rule has been disproved, the stone it has been moved
The grave is now a groove, all debts are removed
Oh can’t you see what love has done? Oh can’t you see what love has done?
Oh can’t you see what love has done?What it’s done to me?…Love left a window in the skies”
I had the immense pleasure of photographing Becky & Peter’s wedding today in Niagara Falls. Such a sweet couple with who share deep faith and a genuine, natural love for one another. Having met and fallen for each other in high school, these two have been really looking forward to this day for a while. They were so organized! Becky had lists for everyone, including maps! This made for such a great day for pictures, given that we were racing the weather. What a joy to capture their celebration! Here are some pics for today…
On the weekend we celebrated my folks’ 40th Wedding Anniversary. 40 years! Wow. It was a bit of a surprise party for them/Thanksgiving all rolled into one as they were away down in Arizona for their actual anniversary. They toured around the Grand Canyon, experienced Red Rock to see the infamous Joshua Trees, saw the hoover dam and visited (briefly) Vegas. Saturday afternoon brought family and friends all together for a celebration of their love and to laugh at old pictures. Back in the day when they were first getting together, my dad had a motorcycle which my mother, of course, was not permitted to go on. So, being the good kids they were, he would walk the bike and my mom home from school. Then, when he decided that she was the one, he sold the bike and got a diamond ring…he loved that bike, but loved her more! I’m still not sure if I believe that she didn’t sneak a ride home from school at least once though- I wouldn’t have been able to resist! It was good to see them still laughing together after 40 years. Thanks to Diane and Anslie for hosting and to my sister for making that delicious cake!!
I had such a great time withPeter and Becky tonight at their engagement shoot. Can’t wait for the big day next August! These two met in high school and are so sweet with each other – such caring, wonderful people. Here are just a few sneak peeks of their urban engagement adventure to tide you over.
I am looking forward to meeting Heather & Cameron tomorrow when I get to shoot alongside the talented Krista Jefferson of Edison Photography. These two first met in grade 4 and now all these years later they are getting married – tomorrow! Can’t wait to meet this smitten couple.
