A Couple In Love - Elbie and Derek

Meet Elbie and Derek.
I was really excited when Elbie got in contact wanting a shoot. They got married back in March but wanted some photographs to celebrate their relationship and married life together. 
These guys are so in love and devoted to each other and I really wanted to capture that in their photos.  Watching them interact and get swept up in the emotion of the shoot was amazing and their love was completely infectious, I can remember smiling all through the shoot. Even now, I still smile when I see these photos and remember the fun we had. I really hope these photos capture that love.

Thank you Elbie and Derek for letting me into your lives for a couple of hours.  I feel honored to now be a part of your history together!

A Rock 'n' Roll Wedding

What can I say about these guys!

From the moment I met Laura I knew this was going to be a beautiful day. With their friends and family pitching in to help make decorations, cakes and food, it was a day filled with friendship and love.
The moment I walked into Mishka I was surround by mounds of vintage clothes, a nervous mother and beautiful bride.  The place was a treasure trove and I understand why Laura picked it as a her place to get ready. There is nothing like the excitement of the bride and her bridesmaids getting ready and it really set the tone for the rest of the day.
Laura and Daniel are both very creative and it seems their friends are too. At the end of the ceremony, some of their friends stepped up and performed a beautiful rendition of the Phil Spector classic ‘Be my Baby’. Lets just say there were a lot of smiles and tears and if one surprise musical number isn't enough, during Daniel's speech, he serenaded his beautiful wife with a version The Temptations ‘My Girl’.  When all the guests joined in on the chorus, I have to admit I was overwhelmed by the love that surrounded these guys.

Laura and Daniel, I just wanted to say thank you for letting me photograph your amazing wedding.  It was an absolute pleasure to be able to capture so many heart warming moments and I hope they will be cherished for a long time to come.
