my friend & fellow photographer chelsey – http://machcphotography.com/ – came up with this great idea to keep us blogging: simply sunday. A photo, or 2 or 3, posted each sunday for a year. Just that. Simple. And on sunday. Coined as simply sunday. So here’s my first shot at honouring this new found tradition (wish me luck in the weeks to come!)…

tess & bunny. A little dreamy. A whole lot of sweet & yummy.

most truly, one of the greatest gifts of my job is being given the honour of photographing couples walking into marriage. I am continually amazed by each couple’s open-hearted willingness to let me stand back & capture their wedding day unfolding – the moments of anticipation & wonder, of vows taken & given, family relationships & the kinship of dear friends, all the details, the celebration & fun, joy & honesty, the tears, laughter & love shared. And always this incredible time with just the two of them, together, in those moments after promising their lives & hearts to one another, seeing the truth & beauty of the delight of union, of hope, of commitment & appreciation. I am so deeply appreciative of all of the couples who shared their wedding celebrations with me, who trusted me with their moments, their hearts’ delight. Such deep gratitude & so much love & happiness to you all.

here is a little of what i witnessed…
