loveLOVElove - Memorable Moments from 2017 - Weddings

Happy Valentine's Day! I hope today is full of so much love and cuddles and maybe some wine. Ok. Definitely some wine. 
Welcome to Day 2 of my new lovelovelove tradition. 3 days full of all kinds of love that is sure to melt your heart.

As I mentioned yesterday, this post has been in the works for a long time and it has not been an easy task. 2017 was a very full year of some of the biggest hearts imaginable. We covered everything from a private intimate ceremony on the shores of Georgian Bay, to a Summer Solstice wedding in the Rockies, to the count down on New Years Eve complete with noise makers and donuts. 

Thank you to each and every one of you beautiful couple's who trusted me (us) with your memories. I am so lucky to have you in my life and to witness the love and joy you have in your lives. I mean it with every fiber of my being. You are the reason I do this year after year. You make my heart swell. I love you dearly!!!

Thanks again to my second shooter, Joel Loughead. I love working with you more than you know, and you know a lot because I tell you all the gosh darn time. It's nice to be able to hug you when I'm feeling overwhelmed with love and I love the way you see things. 

Day 2 - Wedding Edition. Tissues at the ready!!!

LOVElovelove - Memorable Moments from 2017 - Couple's sessions

I will be the first to admit that I have a horrible time picking favourites. It's not something I excel at. Top Tens are a little easier, but not much. They quickly become lists of 25, 30, 50. It actually gives me great anxiety when someone uses the favourite question as a way to get to know me. I can't pick favourites. I love them all! Why can't I just love them all? 

It's the same with images. I have a terrible time narrowing things down. I get so emotionally attached to moments and the subtle differences a half second can allow. 

I thought I'd try something a little different this year. Rather than overwhelm myself to the point of paralysis on a Year End round up, I waited until the week of Valentine's (my very favourite holiday, minus the commercialism. Ask me about our Valentine Tradition sometime). I'm going to give you three posts of some of the most memorable moments from 2017. I will fill your week with so many images of love! Couples, weddings, babies, grandparents, best friends. They're all here. Why wouldn't they be? It's all love. And I do love love. 
So here's to a new tradition of lovelovelove.... 

I hope you're still with me... because here comes round one: Couples.

Thank you to all of my amazing couples who got vulnerable, and silly, and adventurous and real with me. I love you all to pieces.
