agnes and jerry are friends of one of my favourite clients, veronica and henry. they attended their wedding back in july 2011 — and after getting engaged last fall, decided to book me for their october 2012 wedding. yay! i love referrals and these two are a blast. they swear they are “boring” people… but i don’t buy it after an hour with them.

i could shoot a wedding like carly + doug’s every weekend and be a happy girl. it started with a drive out to the country [a wedding that isn’t in vancouver? say it isn’t so!] to their venue, the gorgeous backyard of dream day designs. the day was orchestrated beautifully… with zero stress. carly got ready with her six beautiful, bubbly bridesmaids in one of the two “clubhouses” — and doug awaited his bride with his six best friends on the other side of the backyard. after carly’s mom helped her into her dress, clasped on her grandmother’s necklace and fluffed her hair, it was time for the first look.

the twenties are an exciting decade. my social circle in the last two years seems to be full of relationships, engagements, marriages, even babies — and it makes my heart so happy. [that was also a fun sentence to link to past posts. i love couples.] i believe in marriage. and i believe in the love of Christ sustaining marriages. i love to rejoice with friends starting that journey. this past week, while at RevCamp, i got to do just that. our youth & young adults group, Revolution Movement, runs 3 camps the last two weeks of summer. i was only able to attend the first one for ages 13-19 as a leader and it was there that my long-time friend josh asked his girlfriend brianna to be his wife. at 1 o’ clock in the morning, on stage at the end of a talent show, in front of 200+ sweaty teenagers. she giggled yes. and he teared up a little bit. and the chapel full of campers and leaders clapped and cheered louder than they had for any other talent show act that evening.

kelsey & jason are going to become parents soon. i am excited. kelsey is one of my best friends and i knew kids were in the plan for 2012… so that’s why we took these pre-baby couples portraits in october 2011. ;) i remember the day, end of february, that kelsey and jason brought me into the youth office and pulled an ultrasound photo out of her purse. it was a great day. then i took these photos of kelsey and jason when they found out their baby was a BOY back in may. now, kelsey is 38 weeks [she was 35 weeks when i took these photos] and is as beautiful as ever. she really is “all” baby. and glowing. and i can’t wait to meet their baby boy and have many baby-chillin’/winter-workin’ dates at her home after he arrives [and i’m in my slow season!]
