How honoured I am to be shooting the wedding of one of my favourite photographers, and my lovely friend! I remember the day Lelania came to work, saying she had "met an awesome guy on the bus". On the night bus, no less, on her way home from a night out with her sister. Before saying what I was thinking (something along the lines of, "nobody meets an awesome guy on the night bus, Lelania!"), I stole a glance at her and stopped in my tracks. The woman was bubbling with excitement. I said nothing.
Before long, we had all met Mike. Kind and funny, helpful, and a perfect match for our vibrant friend. The studio was a-buzz with gossip ("I think he's the one," "Oh, I always thought he was the one...").
And he was the one.
Lelania and Mike and I road-tripped to the Township of Tiny, to do their cottage country engagement photos.
In the dusky glow of summer, they walked in the woods near Mike's family cottage, making each other laugh, and holding hands like there was no one else in the world. Before dark, we went to the beach to soak in the summertime vibes of this small Ontario town. Gazing out at Georgian Bay, dipping their toes in the shore, and breathing in the feeling of the future.
How wonderful life is.
