Liz and Scott's Lancefield Country Wedding

Liz and Scott's Lancefield Country Wedding

Anyone who knows me will know that there are a few little visual quirks that I love- such as forming my compositions based solely on lines, and angles, and symmetry, (as well as awesome light!)  I'm not sure why I am so drawn to these elements but for as long as I can remember they have brought me a sense of calm and order in a world, which for better or worse is crazy, unpredictable, chaotic. 

And, as it turns out, I have found a kindred sprit in Liz, during a conversation on her wedding day, who, I might add is much more mathematically minded than myself, and this got me thinking about the connections that can be drawn between art and mathematics, art and science. In my little world, mathematics and science are just another expression of art, they are all interconnected.

And I guess this is how our relationships are too, all interconnected with each other, at times affecting those around us profoundly, and other times, so subtly that it is barely noticeable. And this is what I love about being human, how we are all connected, how we have the ability to profoundly influence and compliment each other in so many known and unknown ways. 

You could see this in Liz and Scott, two strong, independent, beautiful people, who grew up on opposite sides of the globe, coming together, complimenting each other, merging two families- And it was such a pleasure being let into their lives for a day.

Monique and Dave. As I was putting together this post and selecting images for it I found myself smiling. Remembering all the little moments throughout the day. How much I love what I do. And it got me thinking. About why I do what I do. About connection. About how as humans, it is the one thing that brings us all together. Connection is the reason I thrive on being a part of a couples wedding day. I am present in the moment. I am privileged to come into my beautiful clients' lives, if only briefly. To connect with them. It grounds me in the knowledge that we are all part of something bigger than ourselves and that it binds us all together. The connection between Monique and Dave was evident. And I was privileged enough to be a part of it. Capturing with my camera what life is really all about.

When you meet someone and you just KNOW, whole heartedly, with no hesitation, or doubt, or questioning that standing right here, in front of you is your person, that the odds of meeting, however infinitely small have worked in your favour and delivered you a small miracle.This is Elyse and David. They just knew, it was as simple as that.

This is what it's all about. "Wedding season" as it's known in the industry is winding down and I couldn't think of a better way to end it than being able to spend the day with Alena and Rick.  These two were such a pleasure to be around, to be honest I had been looking forward to their wedding from the moment I met Alena. And what a day- we were drenched in golden Autumn light at Glen Erin at Lancefield as I took it all in. This is my job. I'm living my dream. I get to spend my weekends with awesome people celebrating with them one of the best day's of their lives- and it doesn't get much better that.
