Wow, I almost feel at a loss for words to describe how much I adore Mandi & Greg. The first time we met was at their engagement session & we were instantly the best of friends. We went for a 2 hour hike together for the photos & after we were done, it felt bittersweet to leave these new, amazing friends! That was only the start! On the wedding weekend, I arrived in BC on the Thursday evening & got to spend the evening with them & 10 of their family members, eating, laughing, talking, getting to know each other’s heart better. Man you guys, I am a little emotional and overwhelmed as I type this out. I felt like part of the family. I never once felt like a number on a guest list, but I felt like family; wanted & chosen. I actually didn’t feel like their photographer at all. I felt like their friend, who by chance got to take wonderful photos of their day. I LOVE THIS. This is my heart behind photography. That I want to know you, and you to know me. That we would become family. That we would come to a place where I honestly just feel like an extension of your family, so that on your wedding day, you are not spending the majority of your day with a complete stranger; but instead a friend. Greg & I talked a lot about the wedding day in private because he had a lot of surprises for his beautiful bride. One of them (my favorite, so much so that when he told me I was defs crying) was to learn to sing & play guitar before the wedding day, so that he could sing to her as she was walking down the isle towards him. Mandi could barley make it up the stairs because she was overwhelmed by his love for her. This is it you guys. This is love. Being overwhelmed by how much one loves the other. I am so thankful. I am so beyond blessed to have Mandi & Greg as my people now. People that I would go watch the new Beauty & Beast with on a Wednesday night, people that I would feel welcome to come to their family dinner that they invited me to. I am so thankful.
