Above images: Becky gets ready for her wedding day & a close up shot of her bouquet
If you know me well enough, then you know that I love a good celebration. I get a gleam in my eye any chance there is a moment to pay tribute and show appreciation towards some one or some thing. So, I considered myself very lucky when I was asked to photograph Carlos and Becky’s wedding this last May. As someone who has been taking photographs for most of her life, looking at the many moving parts of life through a lens, it really is an amazing feeling to find yourself weaving in and out of two people’s accumulated lives. Mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters, friends; all people who have come together to witness two people enter a new era. To be given the task to archive this succession of moments is a very special one, and it’s a task that I take very seriously (and with a skip in my step).
Happy one month anniversary Becky and Carlos, I wish you two all the best. You are very beautiful people with a rich circle of people who love you, I saw it with my own two eyes.
I would also like to thank Julie Pepin for helping me shoot this wedding. Julie is an amazing photographer in her own right, and I am thankful every day to have such strong people around me who are so driven to create. Julie has been a close ally of mine the last couple of years and I believe I am a tougher force because of it. Thank you Julie.
