where the town used to be before the eruption.
It was my absolute joy to watch my best friend’s little brother marry the love of his life on May 31st, 2014. It was my joy not just to watch it happen, but to be able to capture the day and their love with my camera. It was honestly an honour for me.
Caleb & Jill have been sweethearts for a long time so it was really special to watch them make this commitment before God to each other. The weather was gorgeous, their families & friends from near and far all gathered around them to celebrate. Jillian’s joy is contagious. She lights up any room she walks into with her big smile and her countenance. And Caleb is the perfect match for her. Not only is he hilarious (my brother and I have a multitude of “Caleb quotes”) but he is sensitive and sweet. I know he will care for Jillian like he promised in his vows. (sniff, honestly- I had to wipe some tears) These two are very dear to Josh and I, and I am so excited to see what the years ahead hold for them! Great things I know as they keep walking in their faith- now as one, brighter and stronger than before. (Love you guys! Come visit us!)
Seen as how my little brother John got married this past weekend I figured I should at least get my act together and post theirengagement photos! (from the fall…ahem). We were driving home from Fredericton and decided to have an impromptu five minute photo shoot on the side of the highway. Couple a cuties!
Before we had our baby I used to dream about newborn photo ops, outfits, backgrounds- capturing every little moment and detail of this new life on my camera. When we had him reality hit- when does anyone have time to take photos of a newborn?! My camera remained in it’s bag as I attended to far more important matters, like learning how to breastfeed, crying on my mom’s shoulder, sleeping whenever I could and of course, falling in love with the baby I was holding! Thankfully I did manage to take a few here and there, to at least document this sweet and fleeting stage before it’s gone.
