July 20th, 2015. Wedding Day.
When Sarah and Tyler got engaged a year and a half ago this wedding seemed far away…it’s a year and a half away! Then it was a year, then a few months, to a few weeks and now…one more sleep.
Sarah and Tyler’s wedding has been on my mind all week but driving around today preparing for tomorrow I have thought about it a lot. And my nose begins to twitch. That is my signal that tears are not far behind.
I met Sarah over 10 years ago. It’s a story worth sharing.
I was working for Labatt Breweries and had two little girls. One still in diapers. Sarah worked at a store close to my home that did photo printing, commercial printing, graphic design etc. I was what you would call a “regular”. Not yet aware of what my future had in store I would come in weekly with discs of pictures to print of my family and friends. I documented it all and I printed my brains out. Literally….hundreds and hundreds of photos. Sarah was there most of the time so we would talk and laugh and talk some more. Then Sarah left and went travelling with Tyler. Then she came back. Then she left again…this time to pursue her own business (which is now the hugely successful The Design Truth). We stayed in touch and we worked together on various volunteer initiatives within KW over the years. I have been Sarah’s client and still am. But most importantly she is my friend. She joked about me photographing her wedding years ago. I told her she had to hurry up as I was not getting any younger. Well, that day is here. It will be full of sunshine, laughter and beauty. Everything that she is.
Much love to you Sarah and Tyler.
I am honoured to be photographing your wedding.
