Just finished Careen and Andrew's pictures, and I can not believe that I missed these when selecting for the blog.
Most of my regular blog readers know I do try to tell the story of a wedding with words as much as I do with images.
On occasion, a certain couple comes along who defy my desire to use words and, instead, their emotion and story can be told solely with images.
So, with no further ado, I give you Adam and Lorin. Their wedding was full of beautiful details, wonderful moments, good food and action packed jewish dancing.
I had huge 'selection' issues (nothing new) and just could not narrow it down any futher than this.
Preparing for the Bedeken (veiling ceremony)
I love this one, during the Bedeken, Lorin looking at Adam.
With the next two images, I could not decide which one I preferred so just posted both.
Picture on the right taken by my second shooter Ursula.
Lorin & Adam - thanks so much for allowing us to be a part of your wedding! It was such a blessing, Lorin I have your 2009 medal for being just THE most chilled bride!
I promised Lorin that I would post her wedding pics this week, and am once again struggling with the blog selection. I am "buying time" with this post.
I still have two days left, I promise Lorin, they will appear this week.
Some reception pictures from Chantal & JP's wedding.
Back to feeling human again, a bit of a croaky cough, but hey!, human, finally!
Whilst I do hate being sick, there is something that felt good about sleeping for an entire day, (and not feeling guilty). Years of young children and sleep deprivation all caught up in three days!.
BUT (there is always one of them in the equation) while it's always good to have a full day of sleep, albeit with the most ghastly flu, there is always that dreaded return to the (enter four letter word) WORK.
Editing, emails and the rest pile up, deadlines have to be shifted and you invariably end up more stressed than you were before you became sick.
No post without a pic, back to the grindstone tonight and an overlooked beaut from Chantal & Jp's wedding.
Another thing I planned on doing on a regular basis was to post client testimonials. As you can see it has not happened!
So here you are two for now, and I will try and post one every now and then.
I don't think I can get everything I want to say in this email because you guys were just incredible. Florian and I wanted to thank you and Ursula. You both were just amazing on our wedding day. So many of our friends and family commented on you guys and said how professional and friendly you were. You are such a hoot, you made us feel so relaxed and we really enjoyed the day. I feel like we will have the most amazing photographs and we hardly posed for a single one. That actually says more about you both than it does about us.
We were completely uncontactable for most of our honeymoon and towards the end we managed to get an internet connection at one of the lodges. We were so excited when we saw the blog. The glimpse into the day looks amazing.
It was so lovely to have you both at our wedding. It felt like you were our guests and friends and not one of our suppliers. Thank you for making our day so special. We cannot wait to see the finished product.
Tracy and Florian
I have a hidden agenda for the next one, one reason for posting this one is that I am glad to hear that even after close to two years, couples still love their photo's. But the main motive was that I wanted to see this picture BIG on the new blog.
David and I have been married now for over a year and a half (I just can't believe how quickly time goes by). I still visit your website every now and again, every time I'm amazed by your wonderful photos.
It brings back so many good memories and I'm so glad we chose you as our photographer for our special day in Clarens.
May you have many more success stories and thousands of excellent award-winning photos!
Liza-Mari (and David)
