This is one of my toughest blog posts that I’ve written and one of the most emotional weddings I have ever photographed.
Tears and heartbreak hit me hard when a message popped up in Facebook from Lindsey who would be marrying her long time love Jade, in a few short months… she told me that she had lost her father, an amazing man who wouldn’t be there to walk her down the aisle and give her away. Such grief in a time when everyone should be celebrating and now such sadness. These two and their whole family had been through so much and I knew the wedding was going to be especially emotional.
Even though her dad wasn’t there he was present in so many ways, white roses sat in the chair where he would have sat, his name pin on Lindsey’s bouquet, and a second pin she attached to her dress.
This wedding was filled with many beautiful moments. Lindsey and Jade have two gorgeous little girls and I recently had the honour of photographing little Zoey as a new baby. It was special now, seeing both Zoey and her big sister Alyssa all dressed up, I know Lindsey had said how Alyssa was so excited about her dress!! I’m so excited to share these images with them as I know how special they will be to them.
Jade made Lindsey this incredible clock for their home!! Such a great gift!
Her daddy’s pin. ♥
First time seeing mommy!
If you are considering a first look then do it!!! Its so emotional and intimate, he was stunned with how gorgeous she is!
Another tribute to her dad.
Looking good boys… 😉

These horses just would leave…LOL…
A friend of the bride Cherie helped coordinate and decorate the wedding and she did an awesome job!
I love how these two trust me to play with flashes in the dark, in the cold and maybe some rain…. 😉
