Another very special post for me today. My little cousin, Steven, is all grown up now as a husband, and I couldn’t be happier for him. He found himself a gorgeous, funny, thoughtful young woman who loves him to the moon and back. Steven and Heather have been together for many years already. They met in high school and have been sweethearts ever since. They have had so many amazing moments in their lives together, as well as some very challenging, heart wrenching moments, but they have stuck it out together, and are such a beautiful couple because of it. You can see the strength they share together, and it makes my heart warm knowing they will take care of each other for this lifetime.
They invited me out to Blairmore, Alberta for the big day, and I was so excited! I absolutely love the chance to photograph somewhere new, and this was definitely out of the ordinary for me. An old mining town with so much history and beauty in its rocky hillsides and open farm fields. We hit a little bit of a bump when Mother Nature turned on the rain (and snow), so even though we ventured out for a few minutes, we mainly had to stick to indoors. Fortunately, S+H chose the beautiful Springbreak Flower Farm as their venue, so we all cozied up between the grapevines and the flowers, and had a fantastic time celebrating their ‘I do’s’.
Thank you two for asking me to photograph this day for you. I love you both, and can’t wait to see what comes next in your adventure. xo
